Résumé / Abstract

In 2 studies Ss received a clear or an unclear diagnosis, indicating either disease or no disease. Responses to the unclear well diagnosis were unique in several ways. Ss thought the test more invalid, inferred a greater likelihood of illness from a 2nd identical resultat, saw the disorder as more pernicious, and held no self-protective beliefs about the test or the diagnosis. Moreover, desire for treatment among these Ss was as great as among those receiving a clear clinical diagnosis of illness.
