Stress in middle-aged women: influence of Type A behavior and narcissism.


:The authors examined (1) strength of stress, (2) awareness of stress, and (3) influence of type A behavior and narcissistic personality on stress and its related factors in a sample of 500 middle-aged women. Compared to 400 middle-aged working men, the women scored lower on the type A and coping scales, suggesting the possibility that women with high scores on type A behavior cope better with stress. Moreover, type A behavior in women was related to narcissistic personality. The strength of stressors and stress coping in type A women are affected by the severity of narcissism.
