The PsychoInventorytm Scales
There are seven scales produced by this inventory, including Violence,
Delusion, Psychoticism, Anti-Social, Normality, Addiction, and Obsessive
Scales. The higher the score (for each scale), the greater the tendency
to exhibit the characteristic. The final composite score given is calculated
utilizing a weighted formula incorporating the seven scales. From this score,
it is determined whether one is a psycho or not. A brief description of what
each scale attempts to measure follows.
- The Violence scale investigates the propensity toward
aggressive behavior. This behavior may manifest itself outwardly, or it my
remain in remission until a suitable stressor prompts it to spring forth like
an out-of-control volcano.
- The Addiction scale measures the potential for addictive
behaviors, including the use of controlled substances.
- The Anti-Social scale reviews the inclination toward
substandard behavior to others in society. The term can be used loosely
interchanged with criminality.
- The Obsessive scale assesses the potential for obsessive
behavior. This behavior is characterized as intrusive and persistent.
- The Psychoticism scale measures the level of general
psychopathology through identification of warped thought patterns. Other
psychotic symptoms such as audio and visual hallucinations, catatonia, etc.
are not typified.
- The Delusion scale identifies delusional thought patterns
that may interfere with normal functioning. These patterns are normally egocentric.
- The Normality scale is used as a controlled offset to correct
the possible testing errors that could occur.
Further research will be necessary to investigate the predictability of the
scales and the general validity of the instrument.
