Short description

The purpose of this project is to evaluate different types of data sources in order to support, on a more objective basis, the assessments of personality and cognitive functioning in the course of the psychologist's partial investigation in the forensic psychiatric examination.
1. What does the personality profile of people considered to have an APS versus non-APS from different data perspectives look like?
2. Cognitive aspects of APS from a personality perspective: Information processing and reality monitoring.
3. Differences between data sources' information contributions to the questions about the person's reality monitoring when committing the crime, a mixed-method study in which a synthesis is made of the differences in personality profiles and cognition style between APS and non-APS.
