Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The current study examined the association between domains from the Personality Psychopathology Five (PSY-5; Harkness & McNulty, 1994) model, which is a dimensional model of pathological personality that corresponds closely to the proposed domains of the DSM-5, and psychopathy as indexed by the Psychopathy Checklist-Screening Version (PCL-SV; Hart, Cox, & Hare, 1995). The sample comprised 99 individuals undergoing forensic psychological evaluations. The PSY-5 domain of Aggressiveness was strongly associated with the PCL-SV global measure of psychopathy, as well as both PCL-SV parts and the four facets. The PSY-5 domain Disconstraint was preferentially associated with the behavioral facets of psychopathy, whereas low Negative Emotionality was related to the affective characteristics of the construct. These findings have implications for the Antisocial/Psychopathic prototype proposed for the DSM-5.
