Abstract
IntroductionCultural differences in the combined effects of Type D personality and other mediating factors in the Asian population have not been reported. We examined the influence of the Type D personality in relation to the presence of a partner by measuring symptoms of anxiety and depression, quality of life, self-perception of health status in coronary heart disease (CHD) patients and normal controls. MethodsNormal controls (n=541) and patients with CHD (n=110) were included. All participants completed self-report measures on Type D personality, questionnaires on socio-demographic factors, the Spielberger State and Trait Anxiety Inventory-State (STAI-S), and the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D). By stratifying participant group, personality type, and partner status, eight groups were constructed. ResultsThe subjects with Type D personality showed higher mean scores on the STAI-S and CES-D as well as perception of their health. In cases of depression, CHD patients with Type D personality and without partner showed about a 50-fold increase in odds ratio when compared with non-Type D normal controls with partners. Odds ratio for depression changed from 31.44 to 48.72 in CHD patients with Type D personality based on the existence of a partner. DiscussionHaving a partner significantly predicted the risk of depression. It is important to identify social support systems in CHD patients with Type D personality.
