Abstract [en]

The present study examined 61 men at forensic psychiatric investigation. We compared subjects with or without an assessed previous conduct disorder (CD versus non CD). The CD group showed more DSM-HI-R personality disorders, exhibited more repeated violent criminality and more mixed drug abuse. The CD group differed from the non CD group according to specific personality traits assessed by the Karolinska Scales of Personality (KSP) showing lower scores on the Social desirability and Socialization scale, and higher scores on the Impulsiveness, Monotony avoidance, Verbal aggression, Iritability and Suspicion scales. The CD group had higher psychopathy scores assessed by the Psychopathy Checklist-Revised (PCL-R). The results are in accordance with previous findings in juvenile conduct disordered men. They indicate that personality traits are detectable early in life and stable over time influencing behaviours such as criminality and drug abuse.
