Abstract

Personality traits of 45 patients with bipolar affective disorder who were fully recovered were compared with those of 78 patients with unipolar affective disorder (also fully recovered) and with those of 1172 never mentally ill first-degree relatives. The most striking finding is the similarity in personality between the recovered bipolar and unipolar patients, who both differed substantially from the never-ill group on measures of emotional strength. Bipolar men had normal levels of extraversion, whereas bipolar women, like unipolar women, were introverted.
