dc.description.abstractMuch clinical research has been conducted regarding the connection between personality disorders and eating disorders, but few studies have focused on the relationship between normal personality characteristics and eating behavior. This preliminary research project examined the relationship between personality type and eating behaviors with the moderating variable of body image. To conduct this study, the researchers surveyed female students in social work classes at a southwestern university and used a statistical analysis computer program to determine the preliminary results. The results indicated negative correlations between certain personality characteristics and negative body and self image, positive correlations between negative body image and problematic eating behaviors, and negative correlations between certain personality characteristics and problematic eating behaviors. Further data analysis will be conducted to examine possible causal relationships, including the conceptual model that negative body image operates as a mode.en_US
