Pro- and Anti-aggressive Personality Factors in Defendants with Mental Disorders in Crimes Against Individual

1409

Abstract

The pro- and anti-aggressive personality factors of individuals with personality disorder (64 subjects), with organic mental disorder (147 subjects), mentally healthy (114 subjects), accused of crimes against individual were tested. At the first stage the distributions of subjects who possess and do not pro- and anti-aggressive personality structures were compared with each other using the χ2 - Pearson criterion. A hierarchical cluster analysis with the use of the average intra-group communication method was applied at the second stage with the indicted in crime as subjects and the combination of all pro- and anti-aggressive factors as clustering parameters. It was revealed that the predominance of pro-aggressive factors with insufficient formation of personality inhibitors of aggression is typical for offenders with personality disorder. For mentally healthy offenders, on the contrary, the opposite is true. Аt the same time insufficient formation of personality inhibitors of aggression is revealed in defendants with an organic mental disorder with unexpressed personality traits that contribute to the manifestation of aggression.
