The aim of this study was to examine the factor structure of
the Self-Report Psychopathy Scale SRP-III with expectation for
four factors (Callous Affect, Erratic Lifestyle, Antisocial
Behaviour and Interpersonal Manipulation) and to verify if it
is possible to predict results on the "psychopathy" factor of
SRP-III based on the results of dimensions of the Five Factor
Model (Agreeableness, Conscientiousness, Extraversion,
Emotional Stability and Intellect). The sample comprised 190
psychology students from Croatian Studies, University of
Zagreb (173 females and 17 males) with an average age of
21. For the purpose of this research, the Self-Report
Psychopathy Scale SRP-III was used for the first time.
Research results confirmed the factor structure of the original
instrument and satisfactory reliability of four dimensions
(Callous Affect, Erratic Lifestyle, Antisocial Behaviour and
Impulsiveness and Manipulation). Also, the results showed
that IPIP 50 Inventory can predict 49.5% of the variance for
the psychopathy dimension of SRP-III. The most significant
predictors were low agreeableness and conscientiousness, as
it was theoretically expected, and extraversion, which has an
undefined relationship to psychopathy, and intellect.
