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).
