We are writing in response to the Letter to the Editor by Block, Bair, and Carillo1 regarding our study,2 which took a multilevel approach to examine cross-lagged and co-existing relationships between exhaustion and disengagement, measured daily for
ten consecutive working days using the Oldenburg Burnout Inventory (OLBI).3,4 We assessed the job burnout symptoms using only eight items, all of them worded negatively.1
This is in response to the Letter to the Editor
