Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between personality type and psychological traits in both psychotic and non-psychotic individuals. For the purpose of gathering the necessary data from patients, both psychotic and non-psychotic, intentionally (N=50) volunteers were contacted. Ten distinct TAT cards were chosen to serve as a measuring scale. The same participant's personality inventory was used in conjunction with TAT to objectively assess the participant's personality traits. To measure the needed subject matter objectively, the cross-sectional research design of the current study was used. Internal consistency, intercorrelation, t-test, and ANOVA were employed for the statistical analysis. Results indicated that there is no statistically significant difference between male and female personality types on the personality inventory (p > 0.05). Only two of the personality scale's domains—conscientiousness and emotional stability—showed a gender difference. The results showed that there was no significant difference between personality types and educational status. Additionally, there was no significant difference between psychotic and non-psychotic personality types and psychological traits in terms of residential status and socioeconomic status. According to TAT findings, schizophrenic individuals were less emotionally stable, open-minded, and conscientious and more neurotic, introverted, and neurotic. The association between personality types and psychotic condition has been found to be robust, even though there was a strong correlation between personality types, psychotics, and non-psychotics.
