Abstract

[automatically translated] One element that emerges frequently in the literature is the association observed between psychopathy and pathological addictions, both substance and behavioral. The research data show, in fact, a significant correlation between PCL-R and consumption of substances (Blackburn & Coid, 1998; Brinkley et al., 2001; Rutherford et al., 2000), in particular with the factor 2 of the PCL- R, one connected to the style of anti-social life. These associations are consistent with the idea that a key feature of psychopathy is the high impulsivity, often related to the conduct of risk-taking. This connection can also be observed as regards the relationship between psychopathy and pathological gambling. The study of Ohodgins and colleagues (2012) found that individuals with high impulsivity and antisocial personality traits are more likely to report problems related to gambling; still, the study of Pastwa-Wojciechowska (2011) showed that individuals incarcerated with GAP diagnosis tend to be characterized by significant psychopathic personality traits as well as by problems with alcohol and a greater tendency to crime. Additionally, the study by Ortiz-Tallo et al. (2011) shows that there is a substantial group of pathological gamblers who have elevated antisocial traits as well as narcissistic. the study of Pastwa-Wojciechowska (2011) showed that individuals incarcerated with GAP diagnosis tend to be characterized by significant psychopathic personality traits as well as by problems with alcohol and a greater tendency to crime.
