Title: Personality traits of patients suffering from congenital heart defects


Personality traits of people with congenital heart disease is a topic that is of little interest to researchers around the world. Hence, this work can be considered innovative. The lack of studies on this subject prompted the author to conduct research in this direction. The work presents a research project carried out in John Paul II Hospital, The Clinical Department of Cardiac and Vascular Diseases with the Intensive Cardiac Surgeon Division Institute of Cardiology, Collegium Medicum of the Jagiellonian University in Cracow, with participation of 100 patients with congenital heart defects (ASD – atrial septal defect i PFO – patent foramen ovale). The research was conducted by psychologist Adrianna Skoczek with the use of psychological tests: EPQ-R (S), - Hans J. Eysenck and Sybil G. Eysenck; IVE - Hans J. Eysenck and Sybil G. Eystenck; STAI - C. D. Spielberger, R. L. Gorsuch, R. E. Lushene. The aim of the study was to identify specific personality traits of patients with congenital heart defects and to check the psychological functioning of patients by examining: the level of anxiety, impulsiveness, tendency to risk-taking, empathy, neuroticism, extraversion, psychoticism and lying. The presented results of the research can be used to better understand the patient, and also form the basis for the organization of comprehensive, interdisciplinary therapy of patients with con ; genital heart defects.
