Objective: Type D personality—a joint tendency toward negative affectivity (NA) and social inhibition (SI)—is related to poor cardiac prognosis, but there is no standard for assessing Type D. This study reports on the Type D Scale-14 (DS14) as a standard measure of NA, SI, and Type D. Methods: The study included 3813 participants (2508 from the general population, 573 cardiac patients, 732 hypertension patients). They all filled out the DS14, containing 7-item NA and SI subscales; 275 subjects… Expand

Negative affectivity and social inhibition in cardiovascular disease: evaluating type-D personality and its assessment using item response theory.
TLDR
The DS14 adequately measures NA and SI, with highest reliability in the trait range around the cutoff, and is a valid instrument to assess and compare type-D personality across clinical groups. Expand

The distressed (Type D) personality factor of social inhibition, but not negative affectivity, enhances eyeblink conditioning
TLDR
Personality factors now including social inhibition can be used to identify individuals who express enhanced associative learning which lends further support to a learning diathesis model of anxiety disorders. Expand
The validity of the Type D construct and its assessment in Taiwan
TLDR
The Type D construct and its assessment with the DS14-T is generalizable to an Asian setting, Taiwan, and the prevalence of Type D personality in Taiwan was similar to the prevalence rates in Western countries and Mainland China, and Type D was associated with anxiety, depression and hostility.

TLDR
It is concluded that research on CHD should focus on affective disorder, specific negative emotions, and global personality traits, and that the DS16 is a practical, sound research tool that can be used to assess Type-D. Expand

TLDR
There is an urgent need to adopt a personality approach in the identification of patients at risk for cardiac events and negative affectivity (NA) and social inhibition (SI) in the context of CHD. Expand
[Evaluation of the German Type D Scale (DS14) and prevalence of the Type D personality pattern in cardiological and psychosomatic patients and healthy subjects].
TLDR
The DS14 is a valid and reliable instrument that can be used for an economic evaluation of the Type D characteristics in patients and healthy persons and the possible meaningfulness of the low Type D prevalence in cardiac patients and the prognostic relevance of this pattern require further study.

Validity of the Type D personality construct in Danish post-MI patients and healthy controls.
TLDR
Cross-validate the Type D Personality Scale-16 in a Danish sample of patients with a first myocardial infarction and a random sample of healthy controls indicated that the TypeD construct is equally applicable in Danish patients with CAD, and that Type D is associated with PTSD. Expand
Type D personality is related to cardiovascular and neuroendocrine reactivity to acute stress.
TLDR
Findings are consistent with the noted relationship between Type D and cardiovascular disease (CVD), and suggest a possible pathway to disease via an association with physiological hyperreactivity. Expand

TLDR
The findings of the current study suggest the use of NA and REP markers in research, so that the potential influence of these coping styles can be identified in the study of stress‐health relationships. Expand
Personality, type A behavior, and coronary heart disease: the role of emotional expression.
TLDR
Results indicate that the SI is better than the JAS as a predictor of coronary heart disease (CHD) because of its attention to emotional expressive style and that depression, anxiety, or both may relate to CHD independently of and in addition to Type A behavior. Expand
Health complaints, stress, and distress: exploring the central role of negative affectivity.
TLDR
Results demonstrate the importance of including different types of health measures in health psychology research, and indicate that self-report health measures reflect a pervasive mood disposition of negative affectivity (NA), which will act as a general nuisance factor in health research. Expand

TLDR
There is an urgent need to adopt a personality approach in the identification of patients at risk for stress-related cardiac events, and preliminary evidence suggests that physiological hyper-reactivity and activation of pro-inflammatory cytokines may be responsible for the detrimental effect of Type D personality on cardiac prognosis.
