Objectives: To explore the relationship between temperament and character traits in Cloninger’s psychobiological theory and mental disorders.
Methods: A systematic literature search was conducted of five international databases for all articles published in English between January 1990 and April 2019 (PROSPEROCRD42019133214). Owing to heterogeneity, pooled estimates of correlations for personality disorders and standardized mean differences for case-control studies related to other mental disorders were calculated using the random-effects method.
Results: The pooled effect sizes obtained from 149 studies showed that high harm avoidance (related to 22/24 diagnostic categories), low self-directedness (21/23), low cooperativeness (17/23), high self-transcendence (14/23), low reward dependence (11/24), high novelty-seeking (10/24), low novelty-seeking (7/24), high persistence (2/23), low persistence (2/23) and high reward dependence (2/24) were related to psychopathology.
