Abstract:
The paper presents the Polish adaptation of the Triarchic Psychopathy Measure (TriPM; Patrick, 2010b). The TriPM is a self-report instrument for assessing the three distinct but interrelated components of psychopathy: boldness, meanness and disinhibition (Patrick, Fowles, Krueger, 2009). Boldness is described as a tendency for social dominance, which is accompanied by low anxiety and emotional resiliency. Meanness is a phenotypic manifestation of the lack of empathy, callousness, exploitativeness, cruelty and thrill seeking. Disinhibition is related to impulsiveness, irresponsibility and hostility. More than 1600 participants from the Polish general population, aged 17–78 years, took part in the validation study. The analysis confirmed the three-factor structure of the TriPM, but some items had to be removed. The final version of the instrument – TriPM-41 – has good reliability and its subscales correlated as expected with other variables. Therefore, the scale can be considered a useful tool for measuring psychopathy and its facets in non-clinical and non-institutional groups.
