We examined the effect of psychosocial factors-including time urgency/impatience, achievement/striving/competitiveness, hostility, depression, and anxiety-on long-term risk of hypertension in a young adult, urban cohort. Of these five psychosocial factors, time urgency/impatience and hostility were positively and independently associated with a dose-response increase in the 15-year incidence of hypertension.
