          Abstract

          Background and aim

          Referring to Ten myths about work addiction reviewed by Griffiths, Demetrovics, and Atroszko in the Journal of Behavioral Addiction, three postulates were proposed to apply in future research on work addiction: (a) the clinical psychology perspective, (b) the systems approach, and (c) diversified and adequate methodologies.

          Methods

          In a narrative review, using theoretical assumptions and empirical data, postulates were discussed against myths.

          Results

          The opportunities offered by the perspectives and new insights related to myths were presented.

          Conclusion

          It appears that the three postulates may contribute to theoretical and methodological progress in future research on work addiction.

              Workaholism vs. work engagement: the two different predictors of future well-being and performance.

              This study investigated the distinctiveness of two types of heavy work investment (i.e., workaholism and work engagement) by examining their 2-year longitudinal relationships with employee well-being and job performance. Based on a previous cross-sectional study by Shimazu and Schaufeli (Ind Health 47:495-502, 2009) and a shorter term longitudinal study by Shimazu et al. (Ind Health 50:316-21, 2012; measurement interval = 7 months), we predicted that workaholism predicts long-term future unwell-being (i.e., high ill-health and low life satisfaction) and poor job performance, whereas work engagement predicts future well-being (i.e., low ill-health and high life satisfaction) and superior job performance.
