    • Abstract:
      Compared 4 methods for assessing sociopathy in 79 male and 39 female inpatient alcoholics (mean age 38.8 yrs). Ss were administered (1) the Diagnostic Interview Schedule (DIS), which provides a diagnosis of antisocial personality disorder (APD) and an antisocial symptom count; (2) the Hare Psychopathy Checklist (R. D. Hare; see record 1982-02477-001); (3) the Socialization scale from the California Psychological Inventory (CPI—So); and (4) the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI)-168 Psychopathic Deviate scale. Factor analysis for the 4 continuous measures resulted in a 1-factor solution, implying that all 4 scales measured a single underlying construct. The CPI—So had the highest loading, indicating the strongest degree of association with the underlying construct of sociopathy. Only the CPI—So reliably discriminated between alcoholics diagnosed APD and non-APD by the DIS. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)
