The Minnesota Theory of Work Adjustment offers a sound theoretical basis for many areas of applied psychology where the focus is on the interaction between people and their environments. Suggestions for future development of the theory include assessing the reinforcing potential of work and nonwork environments simultaneously, the application of facet theory ideas to develop behavioral measures of active and reactive modes of adjustment, and the use of alternative ways of conceptualizing and testing the correspondence component of the theory.
