A problem of persistent interest to the clinical psychologist is the discovery of characteristics of performance on psychological tests that will serve to differentiate various clinical groups. Such signs, if they can be found, would be of considerable assistance in determining diagnosis in borderline cases and would greatly enhance the value of clinical psychometrics differentiate these groups. In the course of a study of cases of psychopathic personality, initiated at the University Psychopathic Hospital by Dr. Gottlieb and Dr. Knott, we became interested in an analysis of the psychometric performance of the psychopath and in the relationships between psychometric performance, the electroencephalogram, and certain clinical characteristics. The present paper, however, will be limited to an analysis of the Wechsler-Bellevue scores of a group of adolescent psychopaths.
