Abstract

The Leyton Obsessional Inventory (LOI) and 46 questions taken from Sections M-R of the Cornell Medical Index were administered to 30 inpatients suffering from duodenal ulcer and to 30 patients admitted for ulcerative colitis to test the hypothesis that the latter have more obsessional traits than the former. Results indicate that although the 2 groups did not differ much in their obsessive personality traits, the ulcerative colitis Ss were significantly more worried and concerned about them. None of the sociocultural factors measured, which are known from other studies to influence these obsessive scores, was associated with the differences found. An analysis of the individual LOI items between the 2 groups showed that the ulcerative colitis Ss were more indecisive, more morose, more rigid, and more punctual than the duodenal ulcer Ss (i.e., traits traditionally associated with obsessional personality types). The 2 groups did not differ on the Cornell score. (28 ref) (PsycLIT Database Copyright 1977 American Psychological Assn, all rights reserved)
