Description:

The Inventory of Callous-Unemotional Traits (ICU) self-report version is a 24-item questionnaire that includes three subscales: callousness, uncaring, and unemotional. Each item is rated on a 4-point Likert scale: 0 = not at all true; 1 = somewhat true; 2 = very true; 3 = definitely true. Items are added together to give a total score, with higher scores indicating a greater degree of callous-unemotional traits.

Definition

This is a questionnaire to assess psychopathy-related constructs (psychopathic personality). Individuals high in psychopathy-related constructs are socially facile but emotionally insensitive, egocentric, lacking in affection or concern for others, deceitful and manipulative, forceful and aggressive, venturesome, impulsive, and irresponsible (APA, 2000; Hare, 2003; Lilienfeld & Andrews, 1996; Patrick, Fowles, & Krueger, 2009).
