Are Self-Report Adaptive Behavior Scores Biased for Offenders with High Levels of Psychopathic Traits?

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This study examined whether individuals who displayed higher psychopathic traits tended to report lower levels of adaptive functioning than those who displayed lower psychopathic traits. Eighty five male felony probationers completed the ABAS-II Adult Form – Self Report (Harrison & Oakland, 2003) and the PPI-R (Lilienfeld & Widows, 2005). The overall psychopathy score from the PPI-R was negatively correlated with adaptive functioning. Two of the factor scores on the PPI-R (Self-Centered Impulsivity and Coldheartedness) were also negatively correlated with adaptive functioning scores. However, the Fearless Dominance factor was positively correlated with adaptive functioning scores.
