Abstract

Personality traits were quite stable over 6 yr. among 225 subjects from a community sample, whereas psychological distress of initial testing could hardly explain scores 6 yr. later. Findings support the trait-state distinction of the measures under study, the Eysenck Personality Questionnaire and the General Health Questionnaire-30.
