Abstract

Studies on personality profiles in psychosis typically report certain personality traits as linked to the disorder.

OBJECTIVES:

To determine if individuals with a first episode of psychosis: 1) differ from a non-clinical group on the five factor model of personality; 2) all present with similar personality profiles; 3) hold stable personality traits over time.

METHOD:

79 individuals with a first episode of psychosis were recruited.

RESULTS:

The first episodes significantly differed from the control group on all five personality dimensions. Results also revealed three personality profiles, one linked to psychotic symptoms. Moreover, personality traits of the first episodes showed stability over time.
