Birth season affects mood

11 Feb

Recently, I have been reading about season of birth effects on human psychology, a fascinating, but under-explored topic. Here is a report of a paper on this topic. From the abstract:

“Our results support the evidence that there is a strong association between season of birth and personality, extending the results to affective temperaments as well. Furthermore, our results are in line with clinical observations concerning the seasonal variation of onset and hospitalization due to affective episodes. This is especially important, since affective temperaments are conceived as the subaffective and subclinical manifestations of major and minor affective disorders indicating a risk for the development of these disorders and also exerting a possible patoplastic effect, thus our results also have clinical significance.”
