HyunJi.Kim and EunHee.Park

Abstract—The BDI total mean score and the mean scores of the three factors (Negative Attitude, Performance Difficulty, and Somatic Element) are significantly different among the Depression, Anxiety, Psychosis, and control group. Especially, the BDI total mean score on the Depression group is significantly higher than other two clinical groups and the control group. Within the BDI three factors, Negative Attitude is the most important predictor in distinguishing the Depression group from both the Anxiety and Psychosis group and Negative Attitude and Somatic Element are the most important predictors in distinguishing the Depression group from the control group.

Index Terms—BDI, Depression, Anxiety, Psychosis.
