Abstract:   (8316 Views)
The current study has been carried out for the prediction of hypochondriasis on the basis of personality trait. To do so, through the availability sampling method, 234 individuals visiting the health centers of Tehran’s Municipality were selected. In this study, Ahwaz Hypochondriasis Test and NEO Personality inventory were used for the data collection. The results indicated that hypochondriasis had a significant positive correlation with the neuroticism, and that it had a significant negative correlation with the two variables, i.e. compatibility and extroversion. Further, hypochondriasis had no significant correlation with the conscientiousness and flexibility. The regression analysis showed that personality traits could predict hypochondriasis. However, only neuroticism and compatibility had significant role in the prediction of hypochondriasis.
