Personality differences in delayed sleep-wake phase disorder and non-24-hour sleep-wake disorder patients relative to healthy sleepers

    Abstract

    Based on limited empirical research in the field, Delayed Sleep Phase Disorder (DSPD) is believed to be caused by a delayed timing of individuals' circadian rhythms. However, current knowledge on the aetiology of DSPD has been doubted due to frequent relapses following existing forms of treatment. More recently, studies have emerged suggesting personality factors may contribute to sleeping patterns in DSPD, thus adding to the aetiology of the disorder. The objective of this study was to further investigate associations between circadian and personality factors in DSPD as well as non‐24 patients relative to control sleepers. We aimed to build a diagnostic profile to further aid treatment of circadian rhythm sleep disorders.
