Myers Briggs Type Indicator and Tridimensional Personality Questionnaire differences between bipolar patients and unipolar depressed patients. A further analysis using characteristics of the illness revealed that manic-switch patients clustered together with bipolar patients, with unipolar depression patients antidepressant a separate group.
