Synopsis: 
The correlates of the phenomenology of dependency in the Jamaican population using the 17 questions of the Jamaica Personality Disorder Inventory (JPDI) are reported. One-quarter of the sample population studied reported problems with physiological and psychological dependency behaviour suggesting that they are still locked in a struggle for psychological independence.

ABSTRACT
