ABSTRACT
The article discusses psychological stress as a predictor to schizophrenia. In this study, about five hundred and twelve schizophrenics invalided from the Royal Navy between 1947 and 1956 were scored as objectively as possible for antecedent service, family, marital, physical, personal and other stresses, of which one or more, totaling 530 units, were found in 379 patients. The patients were followed up and stress was recorded before any assessment of the follow-up results. Personal stress, is defined as those facets of personality which make living less easy rather unexpectedly equaled the other types of stress in its relationship to a good prognosis.
