dc.description.abstractThis article discusses the concept of psychological androgyny refers to the co-occurrence in the same individual, regardless of his or her biological sex, of a comparable degree of socially desirable masculine and feminine qualities. Psychological androgyny has been extensively studied in normal samples, and to a limited extent in clinical samples, it has not to date been studied in individuals, either community resident or incarcerated, with personality disorders. Androgyny is a concept that has been developed and studied in the context of normal populations, including across different cultures, but has not been applied to the study of personality disorders. This represents a significant gap in the literature. It is proposed that psychological androgyny is particularly applicable to those who, manifesting a combination of antisocial and borderline PDs, lie at the extreme of the severity dimension of Personality Disorder (PD).
