Negative attitudes towards psychopaths: The role of one's own psychopathic traits

Study Name Negative attitudes towards psychopaths: The role of one's own psychopathic traits
Study Acronym
Funding Agency European, Canada
Primary Research Focus The purpose of the present study was to determine if individ- uals from the community with higher levels of psychopathic traits are less likely to stigmatize an individual diagnosed with psychopathy. In this study, we investigated two hypotheses. We hypothesized a nega- tive relationship between high expression of psychopathic traits and stigmatization towards psychopaths, and also hypothesized that this negative relationship would be strongest within interpersonal-affective features due to their association with fearlessness.
