The Psychology of Criminal Behavior

What does Hare’s Factor 2 correlate with?

Factor 2 relates to antisocial behavior and the deviant lifestyle. Factor 2 is correlated with measures of substance abuse, criminal behaviors, and antisocial personality disorder. It is also negatively correlated with IQ, education, SES, and age. In other words, people with low SES, education, and IQ are more likely to engage in antisocial behavior. This also means that as people get older, their antisocial behavior decreases. However, core psychopathic personality traits do not appear to be related to age, nor are they necessarily related to other demographic features, such as SES and education.
