Abstract

Background: Negative affectivity and social inhibition are the psychological terms that refer to a peculiar personality called a Type D personality.

Aims and objectives: The present study was undertaken to observe the negative affectivity and social inhibition in individuals with type 2 diabetes.

Materials and methods: A total of  50 cases of type 2 diabetes and age and gender-matched healthy controls were recruited for the present study. DS 14 is the standard questionnaire to assess negative affectivity and social inhibition. Those who get higher scores in both these parameters were called Type D personalities.

Results: There was no significant difference in the demographic parameters in the participants of cases and control groups. There were significantly higher scores of negative affectivity in the cases when compared with the control group. There were significantly higher scores of social inhibition in the cases when compared with the control group.

Conclusion: The present study results suggest that there were significantly higher levels of negative affectivity and social inhibition in the cases when compared to the control group. Further detailed studies are necessary for this area to understand better the negative affectivity and social inhibition so that better treatment strategies can be adopted.
