Objective: This study aimed to compare the perception of disease, quality of life, psychological capital, and five personality factors in women with a psychosomatic disorder of rheumatoid arthritis and normal women in Isfahan.
Method: The research was post-event (causal-comparative). The statistical population of this study included all women with rheumatoid arthritis in Isfahan in the spring of 2016 who were referred to medical centers in Isfahan and have medical records. The sampling method in this study was random cluster sampling, of which 30 were selected for the studied groups. The instruments used in this study included a short illness perception questionnaire (IPQ), a World Health Organization quality of life questionnaire, psychological capital scale, and a neo-five-factor personality test (short form).
Results: The results showed that there is a difference between illness perception, quality of life, psychological capital, and five personality factors in all components except being pleasant and conscientious in women with the psychosomatic disorder of rheumatoid arthritis and normal women in Isfahan.
