Optimism and Physical Health : A factorial Study

Auther : Ahmed Abdel-Khalek

 The Arabic scale of optimism and pessimism, the physical complaints inventory, the rating scale of physical health, and self-report estimate of physical health were administered   to 147 undergraduate students at Kuwait University. The results revealed a statistically significant correlation between the following variables: optimism and health, and pessimism and physical complaints positive, as well as optimism and physical complaints negative. The factor analysis of the correlation matrix yielded a very clear and high –loaded factor of optimism and health in relation to pessimism and physical compliments. The present results are congruent with pervious findings in health psychology pertaining to the relationship between optimism and health. These results were interpreted as showing a dominance of adaptive or problem-focused coping among pessimistic. A prophylactic counseling program was suggested to help pessimistic persons cope more successfully.
