Compared semantic differential ratings of “myself” & “other people” made by suicidal, psychosomatic, & normal hospitalized patients. Suicidal subjects rated themselves more negatively than did other patients on the evaluative (good-bad) & potency (strong-weak) factors (the remaining factor is activity: active-passive). Also, suicidal subjects saw themselves as worse than others to a greater degree than did other subjects. 2 refs. (RM)
