Questions on the LSRP

The Levenson Self-Report Psychopathy Scale (LSRP) consists of 26 items that are designed to assess both primary and secondary psychopathy. Here are some examples of the types of questions you might see on the LSRP:

  • “I enjoy manipulating other people’s feelings.”
  • “I can turn my charm on and off like a faucet.”
  • “I am an unusually fearless person.”
  • “I am always willing to try something new if it sounds like fun.”
  • “I am not overly concerned with the needs of others.”
  • “I have never gotten into trouble with the law.”
  • “People who are stupid enough to get ripped off usually deserve it.”
  • “I have a hard time planning ahead for things.”
  • “I sometimes get into physical fights with other people.”
  • “I often act on impulse without thinking through the consequences.”

Participants rate themselves on a 4-point Likert scale, from “strongly disagree” to “strongly agree,” in response to these types of statements. The LSRP is designed to assess a range of psychopathic traits, including interpersonal and affective traits (such as grandiosity and lack of remorse) as well as lifestyle and antisocial traits (such as impulsivity and criminal behavior). It is important to note that these are just examples of the types of questions that might be asked on the LSRP and the actual questions may vary slightly.
