Esta investigación pretendió identificar y analizar las alteraciones de personalidad y personalidad pre-mórbida, entre mayores con la enfermedad de Parkinson y mayores en fase de envejecimiento normal. La muestra fue constituida por 340 participantes, donde la personalidad se evaluó con 170 mayores divididos por dos grupos: grupo experimental (GE), con 40 participantes de edad media M = 82,23 y diagnostico de Parkinson, y el grupo de control (GC), con 45 participantes con una edad media M = 83,47 y en fase de envejecimiento normal. Para la evaluación de la personalidad pre-mórbida participaron 170 cuidadores divididos en grupos idénticos a los anteriores. El instrumento aplicado para mayores y cuidadores fue el inventario de personalidad NEO-FFI. Los resultados no presentaron diferencias significativas en la personalidad de Parkinson, mientras que la personalidad pre-mórbida presentó diferencias en la extroversión y amabilidad.
