Abstract

This study examined the Tridimensional Personality Questionnaire in 32 patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder. Scores on the Harm Avoidance (HA) dimension alone were found to distinguish the patient from normal volunteers. The impact of multiple anxiety disorders and of the specific lower-order HA trait of fear of uncertainty was also demonstrated.
