The Karolinska Psychodynamic Profile (KAPP): Studies of Character and Well-Being

The Karolinska Psychodynamic Profile (KAPP) is a rating instrument that consists of 18 subscales for assessing different aspects of character from clinical interviews. The psychometric properties of the instrument, including reliability, stability, and some earlier validity studies, are reviewed. The present validity study of the KAPP examines aspects of affect control and its relation to other state and trait measures as well as to psychopathology in 65 ulcerative colitis patients.

Cluster analysis was used to classify individuals according to aspects of affect control. Our results suggest that patients with excessive impulse control also have problems coping with aggressive affects, that this co-occurring difficulty is a stable mode of mental functioning in the individual, and that these patients manage quite

well emotionally. Our findings also suggest that frustration tolerance is an important factor in psychopathology; poor frustration tolerance is associated with more problems on most measures.
