ResultsFreud’s Theory
  • Characterisics in ASPD
  • Strong Ids and Weakened Superego
  • Too little contribution of the Superego toward their mental functioning

  • Inner personal regulation (self-reguation, -judgement, etc)
  • Through reinforcement and modeling
conclusion environmental and biological
ConclusionEnvironmental AND Biological … ?
  • The causes of personality disorders, including ASPD, are difficult to clearly describe.
  • Disorders are ambiguous in their definitions and symptoms
  • Neither of the two approaches discussed can fully address all factors to the development of ASPD

**Further research question:

Importance of biological or genetic factors in ASPD prevalence.
