The authors have applied the Jenkins Activity Survey test in 117 patients with residual and sequelae cerebrovascular disorders. Three behavioural types, A, B, and non-A--non-B were determined. A slight prevalence of type A (39.32%) was disclosed by comparison with the two other types, when considered separately although when type-B and type non-A--non-B subjects were lumped together the type A subjects remained a minority. Subjects with marked behavioural patterns were better represented (69.20%), especially those showing factor H. (31.62%), and factor S + H (27.35%).
