As this finding could be of great clinical importance, we attempted to replicate these findings. Results: There was a significant correlation between pre-treatment scores on the TPQ subscale of harm avoidance and severity of depression at baseline as determined by Hamilton Depression Rating Scale HAM-D scores. There was no correlation of harm avoidance scores and percent improvement of HAM-D after treatment with fluoxetine. There was also no correlation of baseline HAM-D scores or percent improvement with the subscales of reward dependence and novelty seeking. Conclusions: In contrast to previous studies, we failed to find a relationship between temperament type as defined by the TPQ and antidepressant response.
