According to Schema Therapy, early maladaptive schemas (EMSs) are closely tied to interpersonal problems. The current study investigated these relationships using a circumplex analysis approach. A sample of psychiatric outpatients (N= 106) completed the Young Schema Questionnaire -Short Form (YSQ-SF) and the Inventory of Interpersonal Problems -Circumplex (IIP-C). Results showed strong relationships between EMSs and interpersonal problems. Findings from circumplex analyses suggest that EMSs are associated with a broad range of maladaptive interpersonal behaviors. However, none of the YSQ-SF scales were located in the domineering, intrusive, and overly nurturing octants of the circumplex.
