Abstract

Theoretical background: The Hypomanic Personality scale (Hyp) of Eckblad and Chapman may he a possible risk factor for affective disorders. Objective: The goal of the present study is to present first evidence for the predictive validity of the German version of the Hyp scale. Method: In a group ofyoung adults the Hyp scale was psychometrically evaluated in 1994, and three years later these subjects received a questionnaire including questions pertaining to depression and to anxiety as well as other variables. Of 289 participants 148 (51.2%) completed this questionnaire. Results: Although depression and anxiety were highly correlated, the persons scoring above the median of the Hyp scale only reported significantly more depression-relatedsymptoms, but not anxiety. There was a trend for hypomanic people to be less often involved in a serious relationship and to report more critical life events. Conclusions: Despite some methodological restrictions, overall the empirical evidence supports the validity of the Hyp scale as a possible vulnerability factor For afflictive disorders.
