    This study aimed to determine the effect of psychological (emotion or personality traits) and autonomic nervous responses in other evaluation, from the perspective of Mind-body correlation which has not been adequately researched.

    The emotion and personality questionnaire, and autonomic nervous scale were administered to 18 university students. consisting of 5 men and 10 women The average age of the participants is 20.6 ± 1.34).

    Data obtained from the emotion and personality questionnaire revealed that calm emotions or negative emotions to be notified the other evaluation were significantly low or high (p < 0.05) than no-other evaluation. The result also revealed that RR interval and skin blood flow, as well as the high-frequency power (HF), were significantly low (p < 0.05).

    On the other hand, skin blood flow as a result of rest was strongly affected by calm emotions (p < 0.05). from the point of view mind-body relationship on time axis, when an individual is evaluated by others. In addition, systolic blood pressure from the task period to the post-rest period was strongly affected by positive emotions (p < 0.05).

    Therefore, the result revealed that autonomic nervous response in the other evaluation increase response accompanied by emotion changes when emotion and autonomic were related and mind and body were adapted to the other evaluation situation.

    Demand for home-visit rehabilitation services (home rehabilitation) is increasing, with the implementation of the regional medical care vision being promoted by the national government, but the deployment of occupational therapists (OTR) is not entirely adequate. The purpose of this study was to clarify occupational stress, and the factors relating to it, among OTRs carrying out home rehabilitation. A total of 101 OTRs (valid response rate, 78. 9%) were surveyed regarding occupational stress, and the association of stress reactions with basic attributes, clinical experience, and stress factors was analyzed. The results of multiple regression analysis show that degree of satisfaction had the greatest effect as a buffer factor for stress reactions, showing a positive correlation with liveliness (β = 0.437, adjusted R2 = 0.305), and a regression equation with a negative correlation with degree of satisfaction was obtained for feelings of depression (β = −0.546, adjusted R2 = 0.291), feelings of annoyance, sense of fatigue, sense of anxiety, and physical complaints. These results suggest the importance of feeling satisfied at work and at home in order to maintain good mental health, and clarifying the specific details of degree of satisfaction in the future will contribute to the examination of better measures for mental health.
