Abstract

The aims of this study are to determine the level of frustration tolerance, the

prominent coping mechanism and whether or not there were significant differences

between the two when compared based upon company and sex of the fourth class

cadets. The data from were treated using the weighted mean and frequency distribution.

The F-test was used to determine possible significant difference among the companies

while the T-test was used to determine possible significant difference between the two

sexes. Additionally, there are 347 fourth class respondents that were divided into eight

(8) companies chosen using random sampling.

Based on the findings, the fourth class cadets have a high frustration tolerance

regardless of sex or companies. The fourth class cadets used appraisal-focused coping

mechanism as a prominent coping mechanism regardless of sex or companies.

Likewise, there is no significant difference in both frustration tolerance and coping

mechanism when grouped by sex. Meanwhile, there is a significant difference in both

level of frustration tolerance and prominent type of coping mechanism when grouped

according to company. The researchers recommend that a succeeding study should be

conducted to determine possible changes in the level of frustration tolerance and their

coping styles.
