Table 2 Means, SE (M SE ) on the STQ-77 scales and effects of factorial ANOVA (factors Age and Diagnosis). Controls were compared to Major Depression (MD), Generalized Anxiety (GAD), and Comorbid (Cmrb) groups. Effect of MD was assessed in Age-groups 2–4 (N Control = 217), effect of GAD – in Age-groups 1–3 (N Control = 232) and effect of Cmrb - in Age groups 2–3 (N Control = 158)

From: There is more to mental illness than negative affect: comprehensive temperament profiles in depression and generalized anxiety
