Abstract
The two dimensions of the Personality Deviance Scales-Revised [PDS-R; Deary , I.J., Bedford. A., & Fowkes, F.G.R. (1995), The Personality Deviance Scal es: their development, associations, factor structure and restructuring, Pe rsonality. and Individual Differences, 19, 175-291], the five NEO-Five Fact or Inventory Adult Form S domains [NEO-FFI; Costa Jr., P.T,, & McCrae, R.R, (1992). Revised NEO Personality Inventory and five-factor inventory profes sional manual. Odessa, FL: Psychological Assessment Resources.] and the Sta te-Trait Anger Expression Inventory [Spielberger. C.D. (1989). Srarf-Trait Anger Expression Inventory (manual). revised research edition. Odessa, FL: Psychological Assessment Resources.] were compared. Intercorrelations of th e NEO-FFI and PDS-R were examined in the Edinburgh Artery Study, a communit y cohort comprising 447 men and 452 women. All the variables were well repr esented in an orthogonal solution of two principal components, which were d imensions of 'social anxiety' (diffidence v, dominance), and 'hostility-agr eeableness' (nastiness v. niceness). The specificity of 'hostility' and 'su bmissiveness-dominance' variables to health research is discussed. These re sults support the view that the personality traits of the 'interpersonal ci rcle' have substantial relevance for both theoretical models and applied re search. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd.
