CARVALHO, Lucas de Francisco; ZUANAZZI, Ana Carolina  e  MIGUEL, Fabiano K.. Pathological personality and quality of life: validity evidences for IDCP-2. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2019, vol.21, n.2, pp. 21-40. ISSN 1516-3687.

This study aimed to investigate validity based on external criteria, i.e., the quality of life, of the Dimensional Clinical Personality Inventory 2 (IDCP-2), an instrument that assesses pathological personality traits. 1618 Brazilians answered IDCP-2, WHOQOLbref, PANAS, and Life Satisfaction scale. The results indicated negative correlations between specific domains of IDCP-2 and life satisfaction and experience of positive affects. Regression analysis using IDCP-2 domains as independent variables and scores from PANAS, life satisfaction, WHOQOL, and clinical sociodemographic variable as dependent variables showed predictive capacity from .27 (life satisfaction) to .48 (general life quality). Our findings indicate that IDCP-2 could be used as an indicator of the absence or the lack of positive outcomes presently investigated. Mostly, we found that presenting high scores on Self-sacrifice and Isolation and low scores on Conscientiousness is indicative of the poor quality of life.
