The PPI-R is a 154-item self-report measure of both global psychopathy and the component traits of psychopathy.

  • Can detect response styles such as positive or negative impression management and random or careless responding.
  • Rather than focusing exclusively on antisocial or criminal behaviors, the PPI-R measures the continuum of psychopathic personality traits.
  • Standardized and validated for use with men and women in a community/college sample that reflects 2002 U.S. Census data for race/ethnicity, educational background, and geographic area. Also includes normative data for a male offender sample.
  • Useful in a variety of settings, particularly correctional facilities, forensic practice, substance abuse treatment centers, and research.
