dc.description.abstract This study examined percent fat, fat distribution, and resting cortisol concentrations between personality types for coronary artery disease (CAD) risk. Males (n= 29, 43 ± 8.8 years) selected through the Jenkins Activity Survey, scoring >_ 75th percentile (Type A=15) or S 30th percentile (Type B=14), had the following measures: percent fat, lipid profile, and waist-to-hip ratio. Each hour, heart rate, blood pressure (SBP, DBP), and cortisol were measured. A prediction model determined risk of CAD. Type A had a tendency to have higher DBP, but was only significant at one time point (F= 3.390, p= .022). Type B showed significantly higher total (t= -2.688, p= .012) and LDL cholesterol (t= -3.612, p= .001). Although we did not show many significant differences between groups, within groups, many significant correlations were detected among the variables measured. Further studies will justify the associations between percent fat, fat distribution, and cortisol across personality types.
