For the purpose of this research, the questionnaire was translated from Slovenian into Serbian. The collected data shows that Serbian journalists are somewhat more exhausted then their Slovenian colleagues, although both groups of respondents fall into the first grade of the tree level scale. According to these results, needs of Serbian journalists are better met comparing to the ones of their Slovenian colleagues, especially the needs for respect, as well as intellectual and sensory ones.
