Study objective: to show that disinhibition is the basis for a psychological diathesis. This diathesis should be present in clinical entities such as psychopathy and the attention deficit disorder with hyperactivity, and traits like extraversion and impulsivity. Project characteristics and design: a multidisciplinar approach including psychometric, cognitive-behavioral, psychobiologic and social aspects will be used; the design, varying depending on the approach, will be either a correlational or a quasi-experimental design consisting of groups classified according to their disinhibition levels. Setting: the provinces of Barcelona and Castelló. Subjects: university students, prison inmates and adolescents aged from ten to sixteen. Studies: validation of two instruments for assessing psychopathic personality in inmate samples; construction of two scales for assessing punishment and reward
