Abstract

A sample of 176 outpatients at a mental health clinic in rural southern Georgia were rated for the presence or absence of the DMS-III-R sadistic and self-defeating personality disorder criteria. On the basis of these ratings, 48 patients met the criteria for sadistic (n = 14) and self-defeating (n = 41). Surprisingly, half of the patients who met the sadistic criteria also fulfilled the self-defeating criteria. A factor analysis failed to divide the criteria cleanly into sadistic and self-defeating subsets.
