Abstract

[automatically translated] Introduction Few studies have examined the presence of different personality dimensions in obese and non-BED BED (Peterson et al., 2010) and the results are still unclear. The study aims to: a) compare the personality dimensions in obese and non-BED BED; b) investigate the association between personality styles and binge behavior in relation to other symptomatic variables. Method 143 obese adult subjects and 60 non-BED BED obese subjects who sought treatment at a public-service on eating disorders, have compiled the following assessment tools: MCMI-III (Millon, 1997), BES (Gormally et al, 1982 ), OQ-45 (Lambert et al., 2004), EDI-2 (Garner, 1984), RSES (Rosenberg, 1965) and IIP-32 (Horowitz et al., 2000). Results In both groups are not found clinically elevated scores on personality scales. BED obese subjects obtained significantly higher scores than the borderline personality disorder (p <.05) and on different scales symptomatic. We will be presented correlational analysis between personality dimensions and some symptomatic variables (eg self-esteem, inadequacy, enterocettiva awareness) conducted separately in two groups. Conclusions This study confirms the presence of significant differences between obese and non-BED BED. We will be presented correlational analysis between personality dimensions and some symptomatic variables (eg self-esteem, inadequacy, enterocettiva awareness) conducted separately in two groups. Conclusions This study confirms the presence of significant differences between obese and non-BED BED.
