What does Hare’s Factor 1 correlate with?

Factor 1 includes the emotional and interpersonal aspects of psychopathy, the callous, manipulative and egocentric qualities—in other words, the core personality traits. Factor 1 is correlated with measures of narcissistic and histrionic personality disorder and Machiavellian traits. Factor 1 is also correlated with level of violence, risk of recidivism (repeat crimes), and abnormal emotional processing (low anxiety, low empathy). Factor 1 is not correlated with age, education, or socioeconomic status (SES).
