Dimensions of neurotic personality and its selected predictors in individuals with arterial hypertension

Summary
Aim. To assess of the levels of neurotic personality dimensions in a group of patients with arterial hypertension compared to healthy individuals. To test the relationship between the overall neurotic personality score and satisfaction with life as well as tendency to notice and attach importance to the positive aspects of life, experience, and oneself in a clinical sample.
Method. Neurotic Personality Questionnaire (KON-2006) by Aleksandrowicz, Klasa, Sobański, and Stolarska (2007), Satisfaction With Life Scale (SWLS) by Diener et al., and the P Scale by Caprara (2009).
Results. Individuals with arterial hypertension (N =81) are distinguished by significantly higher levels of twenty (out of twenty-four) neurotic personality dimensions than controls without arterial hypertension (N =88). Overall neurotic personality score correlates negatively with life satisfaction and the evaluation of positive aspects of life.
Conclusions. The present study adds to the knowledge on the psychosocial aspects of ill people’s functioning and sets directions of work for multidisciplinary teams seeking to improve patients’ quality of life.
