Personality in chronic post-traumatic stress disorder:. A study of the eysenck inventory


Journal Article

Personality variables were assessed in 30 patients with chronic post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). World War II/Korean War (WWII/K) veterans with PTSD were significantly more introverted and neurotic than age-matched non-psychiatric controls, whether or not the controls had been in combat. WWII/ K patients scored significantly higher than Vietnam War patients on both intro-version and denial (lie) scales. Eysenck measures did not change during treatment in PTSD patients; PTSD patients were significantly more neurotic than were major depressives. © 1987.
