Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This study examines the possibility that Type A behaviour is related to physique, and thus, is secondary to physique as a risk factor for coronary heart disease (CHD). Scores on a modified version of the 1966 Jenkins Activity Survey were correlated with a number of physical parameters. Age was found to have the highest correlation of -0.177. When the effects of age were adjusted for, only 7.1% of variation in JAS scores was explained by the body measurements used to define physique. In addition, when high and low scorers on the JAS were compared, no significant differences were found between the groups on any of the body measurements. Since this study found no significant relationship between JAS scores and physique, the results do not controvert the supposition that Type A behaviour is an independent risk factor for CHD.
