The previous study showed that the psychological Sasang Personality Questionnaire (SPQ) and physical Body Mass Index
(BMI) were clinically useful for predicting Sasang types diagnosed with certified clinical specialist and QSCCII. The purpose
of current study was to examine its clinical usefulness using large sized clinical sample.
The age, sex, height, weight, circumference of waist and hip, Sasang Personality Questionnaire (SPQ), and Sasang type
of 2,049 participants listed on the Korean Medicine Data Center were acquired. The anthropometrics of BMI, Ponderal
Index (PI), Waist-Hip Ratio (WHR), and Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) were calculated. The discriminant analysis using
SPQ subscales, BMI, age and sex were performed to predict Sasang types. And, the ANCOVA with age and sex as covariate
was also used to examine differences among diagnosed and predicted Sasang type groups in biopsychological features.
The discriminant analysis showed 82.0% of percentage correctly predicted. And, the biopsychological characteristics of
predicted Sasang type groups were significantly similar to those of diagnosed Sasang type groups. In both predicted and
diagnosed Sasang type groups, the anthropometric measures were in increasing order of So-Eum, So-Yang, and Tae-Eum types,
and the psychological measures were in increasing order of So-Eum, Tae-Eum, and So-Yang types as shown in previous studies.
Discussion and Conclusion
The well validated biopsychological variables of SPQ and BMI showed theoretical and clinical usefulness, and were found
to be useful for diagnosing Sasang types in clinical setting. The current study might be useful for the East-West integrative
medicine and evidence-based teaching.
