Disease relevance of Personality Inventory

  • Twenty patients with fibrositis were compared to age and sex matched groups of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and normal controls regarding personality variables measured by the Basic Personality Inventory (BPI) and responsiveness to experimentally induced pain [1].
  • The multiple correlation was used to determine the relationship between serum testosterone and 19 independent variables consisting of age, height, and weight, and percent lean body weight, systolic and diastolic blood pressures, ten factors from the Cattell 16 PF and the three scales of the Eysenck Personality Inventory [2].
  • Compared migraine headache suffers and matched normal controls on the Zung Depression Inventory, Eysenck Personality Inventory, Spielberger Trait Anxiety Inventory, Taylor Manifest Anxiety Scale and the Health Locus of Control. In addition Ss viewed a film of a subincision ceremony and completed a post-film questionnaire [3].
  • The Eysenck's Personality Inventory (1964), Ryle's Marital Patterns Test (1966) and Leckie and Wither's Inventory for Depressive Illness (1967) were used to determine the role played by psychogenic factors in causing infertility [4].

High impact information on Personality Inventory

  • Two studies examine the degree to which the traits measured by the Bear and Fedio personality inventory are specific to temporal lobe epilepsy [10].
  • METHOD: Salivary cortisol levels were measured upon waking and at 15-minute intervals for the next hour in volunteers selected to have high (>19/23) or low (<4/23) neuroticism based on the Eysenck Personality Inventory [11].
  • OBJECTIVE: The authors investigated the relationship between anxiety--a facet of the Revised NEO Personality Inventory dimension of neuroticism--and serotonin 5-HT(1A) receptor binding potential [12].
  • Ebstein et al used the Tridimensional Personality Questionnaire (TPQ) to measure NS scores; Benjamin et al used the Revised NEO Personality Inventory (NEO-PI-R) to estimate NS scores [13].
  • METHODS: In this study healthy subjects (n = 235) who filled in at least one of several personality questionnaires (Karolinska Scales of Personality, Swedish Universities Scales of Personality, Health-relevant Five-factor Personality Inventory, and Temperament and Character Inventory) were analyzed with regard to the DRD2 -141C ins/del variant [14].

Chemical compound and disease context of Personality Inventory

  • Moreover, subjects expressing the variant polymorphism had lower scores on the Conscientiousness Factor and associated subscales of NEO Personality Inventory compared to subjects expressing the common receptor [15].
  • The subjects were selected after preliminary testing with the Eysenck Personality Inventory and were classified into three groups: extraverts, ambiverts, and introverts. d-Amphetamine was used at three dose levels and a control group was included for purposes of comparison [16].
  • The Eysenck Personality Inventory and Profile of Mood States were administered to 107 men and 43 women before starting methadone maintenance and again after four months of treatment [17].
  • In the present study levels of MAO and DBH-activity were investigated in a series of 30 depressed patients, admitted consecutively, who completed a new personality inventory, the KSP, assumed to measure relatively stable personality traits [18].
  • Sixty-seven anesthesiology residents in training at one center between 1993 and 1995 were administered the modified Vigil (For Thought, Ltd., Nashua, NH), the Paced Auditory Serial Addition Test, the California Personality Inventory, the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory, and five standardized academic performance tests [19].

Biological context of Personality Inventory


Gene context of Personality Inventory

  • The NOTCH4 (CTG)(n) variant was associated with the revised NEO personality inventory Extraversion and Activity (E4) scales [22].
  • The DRD3 variant was associated with some scales related to novelty seeking: the Swedish universities Scales of Personality (SSP) Adventure Seeking and the revised NEO personality inventory (NEO-PI-R) Fantasy (O1) and Order (C2) scales [23].
  • It is consistent with: pre/post changes in IR/RF; RF; IR; data and interpretations from Edwards Personal Preference Schedule (EPPS) and California Psychological Inventory (CPI) scores; comparisons of contrasting groups [24].
  • The Wender-Reimherr Interview (WRI) based on the Utah criteria for adult ADHD, the NEO-five factor personality inventory (NEO-FFI) and the youth self report/young adult self report (YSR/YASR) according to Achenbach were used for the assessment of psychopathology and the description of behavioral problems [25].
  • In this study, we examined the association between 196 G/A the polymorphism in the coding region of the BDNF gene and personality traits scores (temperament and character inventory (TCI) and NEO personality inventory (NEO-PI)) in Japanese healthy subjects [26].
