Abstract
Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the differences among dimensions of temperament and character within type 2 diabetes patients.

Methods: Temperament and character inventory, Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale, Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale were administered to type 2 diabetes patients and control groups.

Results: Anxiety and depression scores were significantly higher in patients with type 2 diabetes (p=0.0001 and p=0.009, respectively). According to inventory, the scores of harm avoidance-fatigability, self directedness-resourcefulness, and cooperativeness-helpfulness of patients were significantly different from controls (p=0.001, p=0.004 and p=0.040, respectively).

Conclusions: Our research findings indicate that the patients with type 2 diabetes differ from the control group members in terms of higher levels of anxiety and depression as well as the temperament and character traits of fatigability; resourcefulness and helpfulness.

Key words: type 2 diabetes, temperament, character
