Introduction: The purpose of this study was to compare early maladaptive schema in obese individuals with binge eating disorder (BED) and those without it. Method: This study was conducted in two stages. At first stage, 151 obese participants completed Binge Eating Scale (BES) in order to identify obese binge disorder eaters and those without this disorder. In the second stage, subjects who scored above 17 in BES selected as obese binge eaters (n=30). Subjects who scored 6 or less than 6 in BES identified as obese non-binge eaters (n=30). These two groups completed Young Schema Questionnaire. Two groups were homogenized in terms of their sex and age to avoid the influence of confounding variables. Results : Obese with binge eating disorder gained significantly higher scores than obese without binge eating disorder in abandonment/ instability, emotional deprivation and insufficient self-control/ self-discipline. Conclusion : Abandonment/ instability, emotional deprivation and insufficient self-control and self-discipline schemas play principal role in identifying the differences between the obese individuals that have binge eating disorder and those without this disorder.
