Abstract

There are suggestions in the literature on primary affective disorder of an association between the illness and occupational or educational achievement. To test this hypothesis the authors studied 100 patients with primary affective disorder, comparing their occupational and educational achievements with those of their same-sexed siblings. The data provided no clear evidence that persons suffering from primary affective disorder demonstrate unexpectedly high occupational or educational achievement, or that they show impaired occupational or educational achievement as a result of their illness.
