Keyword(s): A new stress tolerance test is presented which allows of a quantitative estimation of the working capacity of the individual in a stressful working Situation. It also allows of a quantitative measurement of some physiological changes as well as observations of psychological behaviour caused by the experimental stress situation which attempts to parallel the different stresses of actual working life. In two clinically different groups investigated statistically significant differences were found with regard to working efficiency and to urinary output of adrenaline and noradrenaline but not to 17-ketosteroids and corticosteroids in the urine or to reduced glutathione in the blond. In spite of the Small series it seems justifiable to conclude that a simultaneous estimation of the working capacity and probably of the behaviour and of the urinary output of adrenaline and noradrenaline during the described stress situation may serve as an improved diagnostic aid in the estimation of the stress tolerance of different individuals in psychiatric medical and psychotechnical work. At present the test is being investigated an a larger series of cases. ___MH
