Abstract/Description: Interoceptive acuity is defined as adeptness at detecting changes in autonomic reactivity (McNally, 1996). Poor interoceptive acuity, i.e. discordance between subjective and physiological reactivity to stressors, has been associated with panic disorder symptoms. We examined the relation between poor interoceptive acuity and disinhibitory disorders (e.g., antisocial personality disorder, ASPD). Skin conductance responses (SCRs) to unpredictable and predictable blasts of white noise were collected from 123 (73 female) participants who then rated their subjective reactivity to the blasts. Larger discrepancies between physiological and psychological reactivity were related to higher counts of ASPD, alcohol, and cannabis use disorder symptoms. Higher physiological reactivity was related to higher number of social anxiety disorder symptoms. Our findings suggest that poor interoceptive acuity may be related to disinhibitory psychopathology.
