Are Personality and Eating Behaviours Related to no Clinical Males and Females Adolescents?

Are Personality and Eating Behaviours Related to no Clinical Males and Females Adolescents? Several researches have focused on association between personalities and eating disorders, however, only few studies have analyzed the gender role. For this reason, the purpose of this study is to describe the correlation for no clinical adolescent males and females in the association between eating behaviour and personality. 324 male and 267 female (age: 17.16±1.03) filled the Italian version of the EPQ-R, IVE and EDI-II. These findings confirm the role that gender can have in relation between personality and eating disorder. In fact, neuroticism seems to be relevant in both genders while psychoticism has shown more significance correlation in male, instead impulsivity has shown more correlation in female. The discussion centres on the practical application of this study. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Advances in Psychology Science and Engineering Publishing Company

Abstract

Several researches have focused on association between personalities and eating disorders, however, only few studies have analyzed the gender role. For this reason, the purpose of this study is to describe the correlation for no clinical adolescent males and females in the association between eating behaviour and personality. 324 male and 267 female (age: 17.16±1.03) filled the Italian version of the EPQ-R, IVE and EDI-II. These findings confirm the role that gender can have in relation between personality and eating disorder. In fact, neuroticism seems to be relevant in both genders while psychoticism has shown more significance correlation in male, instead impulsivity has shown more correlation in female. The discussion centres on the practical application of this study.
