This study investigated the sociotropic and autonomous personality characteristics and perceived problem solving ability of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients, and their relationship with quality of life. The study included 14 CAPD patients and 54 healthy volunteers. Sociotropy and autonomy scores were significantly higher in CAPD patients than in the healthy control group. Among CAPD patients, there was a significant correlation between problem solving and serum phosphate, parathormone levels and erythrocyte sedimentation rate. There was a negative correlation between total dialysis time and sociotropy in CAPD patients, and a positive correlation between general health/pain perception and autonomy. Appropriate medical management, time on dialysis and positive self-perception of health were correlated with better problem solving ability and higher autonomous but lower sociotropic personality styles.
