INTRODUCTION To objective is to identify the factorial structure underlying personality disorders, using clinical and personality measures, and to check whether the resulting structure is valid and theoretically comprehensible, using neurocognitive and psychophysiological measures for establishing possible differences between the factors. METHOD From the data obtained with the scales MCMI-II and BFQ administered to a sample of 87 subjects diagnosed as a case of any clinical category of DSM-IV… 



Personality Disorders and the Five-Factor Model of Personality

Data from three normal samples were used to examine links between personality disorder scales and measures of the five-factor model of personality. In the first study, self-reports, spouse ratings,

Temperament and the structure of personality disorder symptoms

This paper attempts to construct a simplified system for the classification of personality disorders, and relates this system to normally distributed human personality characteristics, and labels these factors 'the four As': antisocial, asocial, asthenic and anankastic.

Divergences between clinical and research methods for assessing personality disorders: implications for research and the evolution of axis II.

Measurements of axis II were constructed by using a model derived from axis I instruments that diverges from clinical diagnostic procedures in a way that may be problematic for the assessment of personality disorders and the development of a more clinically and empirically sound taxonomy.

A psychobiological perspective on the personality disorders.

A psychobiological model based on dimensions of cognitive/perceptual organization, impulsivity/aggression, affective instability, and anxiety/inhibition is proposed, which spans the DSM-III-R axis I and axis II disorders.

An evaluation of DSM‐III‐R personality disorders

The results do not support the categorical model used in DSM‐III‐R and they provide only limited support for DSM‐ III‐R diagnostic concepts.

On modelling personality disorders: are personality style and disordered functioning independent or interdependent constructs?

Interdependence was generally evident, suggesting that the personality descriptors underpinning current definition of the PDs actually act as proxy criteria for assessing disorder because they are, in and of themselves, descriptors of pathological functioning.

Conceptions of personality disorders and dimensions of personality

Differing conceptions of personality disorders inherent in the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory Personality Disorder Scales and the Personality Adjective Checklist were evaluated within

Schizotypy in community samples: the three-factor structure and correlation with sustained attention.

Examination of cross-cultural applicability of the Schizotypal Personality Questionnaire, the Perceptual Aberration Scale, and the Continuous Performance Test in community samples of Taiwanese adults and adolescents found the Interpersonal factor and possibly the Disorganization factor were associated with poorer attention, whereas the Cognitive-Perceptual factor was not.

A psychometric evaluation of the DSM-IV personality disorder criteria.

The findings suggest that the DSM-IV PDs may have better reliability than did their DSM-III-R predecessors, however, the weak discriminant validity found for the PD criteria sets indicates that the Axis II system will continue to show high levels of comorbidity.
