    • Abstract:
      Three hundred and sixty-four female undergraduate women completed the Bulimia Test (BULIT), the Restraint Scale, the Beck Depression Inventory, the Social Readjustment Rating Scale, the Multidimensional Body-Self Relations Questionnaire (MBSRQ), the Body Image Avoidance Scale, and the Eating Disorders Inventory (EDI). Subjects also completed a self-complexity measure that required them to sort 33 traits into groups of meaningfully related traits that described them. This task was administered a second time in which subjects were asked to add 5 traits that described them to their trait sort. Twenty subjects were identified as bulimic based on BULIT scores and on responses to specific items that ask about bulimic behavior. Twenty-seven subjects who reported frequent dieting and denied bulimic symptoms were identified as chronic dieters. Subjects who did not meet the criteria for classification in any of the three groups were selected as a separate group that was excluded from comparisons of the other three groups. Results showed few univariate differences between the bulimic and dieter groups. When levels of psychological distress and dietary restraint were statistically controlled, none of the body image measures discriminated between the bulimic and dieter groups. The body image measures were entered into a series of common factors analyses in order to explore the interrelationships of these variables in the bulimic and dieter groups. Comparison of factor structures from the entire sample and the sample from which the eating disordered subjects were eliminated suggested that there is less distinction among the different dimensions of body image in the bulimic group. Neither of the self-complexity scores discriminated among any of the groups. However, the interaction between self-complexity and SRRS scores significantly predicted BULIT and BDI scores; in both cases, higher self-complexity moderated the effect of stressful life events.
