Although this deadly impact probably reflects financial and physical roots, not just emotional ones, "Our study results clearly indicate that unemployment is not just bad for your pocketbook; it's also bad for your health," said Joseph E. Schwartz, professor of psychiatry and behavioral science at the Stony Brook University School of Medicine in New York, in a press release.
Personality's Role In High Blood Pressure May Not Be So Prominent, 1 Feb 2001 [cached]
"No evidence from this study supports the hypertensive personality hypothesis," said lead author Joseph E. Schwartz, PhD, of the department of psychiatry at State University of New York, Stony Brook.
Previous studies have found those with high blood pressure to be angrier, more anxious, more depressed and more Type A than those with normal blood pressure.Studies have also found characteristics such as restrained aggression, inner tension and submissiveness to be associated with high blood pressure.
According to Schwartz and colleagues, the findings of such studies may be misleading for several reasons.Obtaining accurate blood pressure measurements is inherently difficult, since many individuals test differently in a clinical environment."As many as 20 percent of all patients diagnosed with hypertension may have 'white coat' hypertension," said Schwartz.Also, many studies fail to screen study participants for other cardiovascular diseases, which may skew results.
Another problem with previous studies on blood pressure and personality is their lack of consistency, according to the researchers.Some studies used standard psychological tests, some didn't.Some studies measured anger expression and not anger suppression, and some studies measured a range of variables while others measured only one or two, like anger and anxiety, for example."This variability makes cross-study comparisons difficult," said Schwartz.
Using popular standardized tests, Schwartz and colleagues measured a wide range of behaviors in 283 men, including anger, anger expression, anxiety, hopelessness and submissiveness.
In an earlier publication from this study, Schwartz and colleagues found that men in highly demanding jobs with little decision-making power were more likely to have hypertension.
"The relationship between psychological variables and hypertension, if one exists at all, is probably quite complex," Schwartz concluded.
This research was supported in part by grants from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and the American Heart Association.

"Our study results clearly indicate that unemployment is not just bad for your pocketbook; it's also bad for your health," said Joseph E. Schwartz, Ph.D., the study's lead author. Schwartz is a professor of psychiatry and behavioral science at Stony Brook University School of Medicine and a visiting professor for the Department of Medicine and Psychiatry at Columbia University.
"The results suggest a causal relationship between unemployment and higher risk of death, as well as the need to identify strategies to minimize the adverse health effects of unemployment," he said.
Schwartz pointed out that the current economic crisis and unemployment rates intensify the need to research the relationships between unemployment, health risks and premature death.
Schwartz and colleagues emphasized that future research should focus on possible mediating, moderating and confounding factors, as well as whether the risk of death could be modified in individuals, either at the health care system level or individual level.
