CORDERO, Soledad. The role of personality in the relationship between stress - frustration and diverse afective reactions. Cienc. psicol. [online]. 2007, vol.1, n.1, pp. 47-69. ISSN 1688-4094.
The aim of the study was to investigate the mediation role of fourteen personality styles in the relationship between stress and/or frustration and the development of a variety of affective reactions. We used two clinical samples (n=260) of adult outpatients with diverse clinical syndromes (Axis I). The theoretical framework was Kuhl´s Personality Systems Interaction Theory (Germany). The results suggest that the personality styles that are more vulnerable to develop negative emotions - in a state of frustration or under stress - are the passive (depressive) and the impulsive (borderline) personality styles.
