Elaborating on the Construct Validity of the Triarchic Psychopathy Measure in a Criminal Offender Sample
This study examined the construct validity of the TriPM in a sample of incarcerated offenders and found evidence of good construct validity in that the scales were related to conceptually relevant normal-range and dysfunctional personality trait criteria, as well as narcissism and deficits in empathy.

Development and Validation of a Response Bias Scale (RBS) for the MMPI-2
Study results suggest that the Response Bias Scale may be a useful addition to existing MMPI-2 validity scales and indices in detecting symptom complaints predominantly associated with cognitive response bias and overreporting in forensic neuropsychological and disability assessment settings. Expand
Further validation of the MMPI-2 and MMPI-2-RF Response Bias Scale: findings from disability and criminal forensic settings.
The results of this study indicate that the RBS can add uniquely to the existing MMPi-2 and MMPI-2-RF validity scales in detecting symptom exaggeration associated with cognitive response bias. Expand
Examining the associations between DSM-5 section III antisocial personality disorder traits and psychopathy in community and university samples.
Traits representing the Section III psychopathy specifier accounted for a substantial amount of variance within the fearless-dominance/boldness domain, and additional DSM-5 Section III personality traits augmented the characterization of psychopathy from the PPI and Triarchic perspectives. Expand
Utility of the MMPI-2-RF (Restructured Form) validity scales in detecting malingering in a criminal forensic setting: a known-groups design.
The results indicated that the two MMPI-2-RF validity scales specifically designed to detect overreported psychopathology, F-r and F(P)-r, best differentiated between the malingering and nonmalingering groups. Expand
Examination of the MMPI-2 restructured form (MMPI-2-RF) validity scales in civil forensic settings: findings from simulation and known group samples.
This study indicates that the MMPI-2-RF over-reporting validity scales are effective at detecting symptom over- reporting in civil forensic settings. Expand
Boldness Explains a Key Difference Between Psychopathy and Antisocial Personality Disorder
Although antisocial personality disorder (ASPD) has represented the current operationalization of psychopathy since DSM‑III, it has long been recognized as failing to capture the full range of theExpand
The Role of Peer Attachment and Normative Beliefs about Aggression on Traditional Bullying and Cyberbullying.
This study examined the effects of normative beliefs about aggression and peer attachment on traditional bullying, cyberbullying, and both types of victimization. Cyberbullying departs fromExpand
Utility of the MMPI-2-RF in detecting non-credible somatic complaints
The MMPI-2-RF appears to have considerable promise in detecting individuals who feign physical health problems and the FBS-r scale was overall the most sensitive in differentiating non-credible somatic complaints from genuine medical illness, it could not differentiate well between the somatic malingering and somatoform patient conditions. Expand
Differential sensitivity of the Response Bias Scale (RBS) and MMPI-2 validity scales to memory complaints
Elevated scores on the MMPI-2 Response Bias Scale are associated with over-reporting of memory problems, which provides further external validation of the RBS as a sensitive measure of cognitive response bias. Expand
