Abstract

The Cornell Medical Index, Taylor scale, and the Saslow Psychosomatic Inventory were administered to in-patients and out-patients in the medical and psychiatric hospitals and clinics of a medical school. The result was that "number of medical symptoms was a good predictor (correlated highly) of psychiatric symptomatology and vice versa." Females had more medical symptoms than men, but no such distinction appeared, re: psychiatric symptoms. From Psyc Abstracts 36:01:3HI55M.
