Abstract

Since characterological characteristics of patients with schizophrenia and comorbid alcohol abuse are not well established, we compared outpatients with DSM-IV schizophrenia, with (n = 51) and without alcohol-abuse (n = 51), matched for sex, age, IQ, and symptom severity, using the Temperament and Character Inventory. Dual-diagnosis patients showed highly selective greater novelty seeking.
