Fifty coronary heart disease cases along with an equal number of controls, matched in age and educational levels were studied using Middlesex Hospital Questionnaire, Somatic Inkblot Series I and Command Hospital Questionnaire. They were between 20 and 55 years of age. Obsession and somatic personality traits measured on SIS variables were found to be statistically significant in coronary cases compared to controls. However the subject belief in the philosophy of "Karma" when measured on command hospital questionnaire did not show any difference between the two groups.
