The Differential Effect of Perceived Control and Negative Affectivity as a Function of Gender after Coronary Artery By-pass Graft Surgery

The Differential Effect of Perceived Control and Negative Affectivity as a Function of Gender... The present study was designed to examine the moderating effect of gender on the impact of negative affectivity (NA) and perceived control on physical and psychological symptoms after coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG). A higher effect of NA and perceived control was found on symptoms for men than for women. This may indicate that men and women process information differentially, which affects their perception of events and situations. The present study is unique in that it considers gender differences in the effects of two opposite personality traits on symptoms. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Sex Roles Springer Journals

Abstract

The present study was designed to examine the moderating effect of gender on the impact of negative affectivity (NA) and perceived control on physical and psychological symptoms after coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG). A higher effect of NA and perceived control was found on symptoms for men than for women. This may indicate that men and women process information differentially, which affects their perception of events and situations. The present study is unique in that it considers gender differences in the effects of two opposite personality traits on symptoms.
