Hecht, Ira H.; Jurkovic, Gregory J.
Journal of Youth and Adolescence, v7 n2 p197-201 Jun 1978
The validity of Wechsler's Performance--Verbal IQ sign was examined for psychopathic, neurotic, and subcultural delinquent boys. The psychopathic group scored significantly higher on the performance scale than on the verbal scale, and lower on the comprehension subtest than the other groups. Findings were related to characteristics common to delinquents, regardless of personality orientation. (Author/JAC)
