Abstract

A follow-up study was made in groups of female neurotic, depressive, periodic catatonic, hypertonic, hyperthyreotic patients and normal control subjects using self-rating questionnaires to assess disposition, depressivity, neuroticism and subclinical symptoms. The subclinical symptoms scale (Sub-S) was elaborated on the basis of Huber’s pure defect. We found that the experience (Sub-Exp) and behavior characteristics (Sub-Be) of the Sub-S form two separate subconstructs. The Sub-Exp belongs to the neuroticism factor and the Sub-Be can be evaluated as a subclinical appearance of manifest psychopathological behavior symptoms. The ‘general disposition’ construct is divided into subconstructs and shows contextual variants. It is proposed to use different methods for assessing it in the different problem areas simultaneously.
