Sammanfattning (abstract):
The influence of an affective personality type upon psychological health was examined in 100 psychiatric patients. Factors predicting positive and negative affect were studied in a comparison of the patients with a healthy norm group of 1925 individuals. The patient group showed strong associations between affective personality, energy, optimism and self-reported health as well as stress indisposition. Positive affect was predicted significantly from dispositional optimism whereas stress was counter-predictive. Negative affect was predicted significantly from stress, whereas dispositional optimism, energy and pulse rate were counter-productive. Within both populations, individuals expressing the self-fulfilling affective profiles showed healthiest profiles compared with those expressing self-destructive affective profiles. The patients differed markedly from the norm group with regard to all health variables. Stress appears less detrimental for health in comparison to negative affect itself which is expressed by a self-destructed symptom profile.
