Various aspects of their use are described elsewhere (Rosenman 1984b; Rosenman and Chesney 1984). This contribution has attempted to describe some of the thoughts and observations that led to the conceptualization ofTABP as resulting from an interaction of individuals with their environmental milieu, and to describe some of the findings that related TABP to CHD.

Among these items, the Framingham Type A Scale (FTAS) was significantly correlated with daily stress, Current and Past History of Type A Behavior Pattern 27 emotional lability, tension, anger symptoms, and ambitiousness. The FTAS was significantly correlated with CHD prevalence in both sexes, after controlling for other risk factors. Subjects aged 40-74 years and free of CHD (n = 1674) were then followed for 8 years in a prospective manner.
