Abstract

Patients with bronchial asthma were compared with physically ill patients as to personality traits and dysthymic states. Asthmatics were less dominant and more intropunitive, more anxious and more depressed than the control group. Low dominance or dependent social attitude and inhibited hostility was correlated with low vital capacity (FVC).
