What Psychopathy Actually Is. Peer-reviewed Research

Postby easiersaidthandone » Wed Dec 19, 2018 6:15 pm

The triarchic model of psychopathy is the current latest model for explaining the core aspect of psychopathy, and it's characterized by 3 separate constructs: Disinhibition, Boldness, and Meanness.

The essence of the triarchic model is that psychopathy encompasses three distinct phenotypic constructs: disinhibition, which reflects a general propensity toward problems of impulse control; boldness, which is defined as the nexus of social dominance, emotional resiliency, and venturesomeness; and meanness, which is defined as aggressive resource seeking without regard for others ("dysaffliated agency").
