Abstract/Description: Two theories have been proposed to explain the covariation between antisocial personality disorder (ASPD), histrionic personality disorder (HPD), and psychopathy: the sex differentiated-manifestation hypothesis (e.g., Hamburger, Hogben, & Lilienfeld, 1996) and the impulsivity hypothesis (e.g., Cale & Lilienfeld, 2002). The current study examined these two hypotheses in an undergraduate sample using dimensional constructs (e.g., symptom severity ratings). The current study also attempted to test these theories while controlling for overlapping symptoms of borderline personality disorder (BPD). Direct tests of the two models provided no support for either. When BPD symptoms were controlled for, ASPD and HPD symptoms were no longer related to each other or to impulsivity. Implications of this study and recommendations for future studies are discussed.
