Sažetak
Different psychosocial characteristics have been associated with allergic disorders. The aim of this study was to examine whether atopic constitution and reports of allergic symptoms were related to personality trait of neuroticism, exposure to stressful life events and estimates of quality of life. Atopy was determined by skin prick test and reports of nasal and pulmonary allergy-related symptoms.Actively working individuals of both genders took part in the study (n=145, age range:20-66 years). The participants were divided into three groups. The first group was composed of those with negative skin prick test and without symptoms (n=57), the second one of those with positive skin prick test but without symptoms (n=28), and the third one of those with positive skin prick test and symptoms (n=60). The groups did not differ significantly in neuroticism, exposure to stressful life events or quality of life. Women reported more pronounced neuroticism and anxiety, higher exposure to stressful life events, and were less satisfied with their environment than men. In our sample of active workers we found no association of neuroticism, exposure to stressful life events and quality of life with atopy and allergic symptoms.
