The psychology of the corrupt: some preliminary findings
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
Design/methodology/approach: The research is based upon 17 interviews with white-collar offenders who were also asked to complete an Eysenck Personality Questionnaire to identify their profile.
Findings: This study postulates that sensation seeking, risk appetite, impulsivity and lower non-aggressive self-regulation dominate the E scale traits of white-collar offenders.
Originality/value: This paper is very much original in its design with few studies having been performed in this area.
