Men and Women Personality Disorders Literature Review
Literature Review of Previous Studies Done On Personality Disorders (Men and Women) measuring the difference of personality disorder (NPD, psychopathy, etc,) differences between men and women. Many researchers have hypothesized relationships between personality disorders and gender role (i.e., masculinity and femininity). However, research has not addressed if people who are masculine or feminine more often meet the criteria for personality disorders. The present study examined whether college students (N = 665, 60% women) higher in masculinity or femininity more often exhibited features of the 10 DSM-IV personality disorders. Feminine men exhibited more features of all the personality disorders except antisocial.
