Method: 50 married male by mean age of 53 with CHD diagnosis from Modarres hospital compared with 50 healthy male (with the same including criteria) according to the Carver & White's BIS/BAS and multidimensional perfectionism scales. Results: In men with CHD the activity of BAS were higher than healthy men. Also, in subjects with CHD self-oriented perfectionism and other-oriented perfectionism were higher than healthy men. There were significant differences between correlations of BAS's subscales and dimensions of perfectionism in CHD and healthy subjects.
