Inside the Mind of the Fraudster: Thematic Models of Emotions and Roles

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



Abstract:

This study examined the emotions experienced and roles acted out by offenders when committing a fraud. Forty-five incarcerated fraud offenders each gave a narrative account of their convicted crime. Fraudsters completed questionnaires indicating the extent to which a series of emotions and roles statements described themselves at the time of their crime. Smallest Space Analysis of the 60 emotions and roles variables revealed four emotional role themes defined by two axes: pleasure-displeasure and high-low agency. The results support Katz’s (1988) proposal that the actual experience of committing crime is important in understanding the psychological processes that sustain and encourage crimes.
