NEO-PI profiles in PTSD as a function of trauma level.

Author information

Psychology Service, VA Medical Center, Augusta, GA 30904.


One hundred Vietnam veterans with combat-related PTSD were administered the NEO Personality Inventory (NEO-PI) and the Combat Exposure Scale and were sorted into three groups based on trauma exposure level. Results indicate no significant differences among the personality profiles of the three trauma-exposed groups. A normative NEO-PI profile for persons diagnosed with combat-related PTSD is presented, characterized by an extremely high Neuroticism score (T > 75) and an extremely low Agreeableness score (T < 25).
