An individual’s perception of time is highly personalized & subjective. Assuming that time orientation may be related to views about living & dying, its measures may differentiate etween suicidal & nonsuicidal people. Six measures of time perception were administered to 2 groups. One contained 15 psychiatric Ss who had attempted suicide; the other had 14 unmatched paychiatric Ss who had not attempted suicide. Only one measure differentiated the groups & this could have been a chance occurence.
