 Abstract
Objectives: The purpose of this research was to study the Psychological Characteristics of Korean Medicine Students, focusing on Korean version of the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2, the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory. Methods: We conducted survey on 101 Korean Medicine Students to investigate the Psychological Characteristics of Korean Medicine Students, focusing on the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2, the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory. Results: 1. 14.8% of students scored more than 52 points in the State Anxiety Inventory, and 20.8% of students scored more than 53 points in the Trait Anxiety Inventory. 2. Students with anxiety according to the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory showed higher scores in the Sc, Pd, Si, RC4 scales, as compared to students without anxiety (p<.05). 3. Students with anxiety according to the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory showed higher scores in the Pt, RCd, RC7 and NEGE scales, as compared to students without anxiety (p<.05). Conclusions: Students with anxiety seem to have difficulty in adjusting socially, as compared to students without anxiety. In addition, students with anxiety have a personality tendency to experience negative emotions, as compared to students without anxiety.
