Psychologists explore personality features that are socially aversive and linked with various sorts of interpersonal difficulties and potentially destructive behaviors such as aggression, manipulation, and exploitation. In sections on antagonism, disinhibition, rigidity, and negative affectivity, they consider such topics as contemporary conceptualizations of callous personality features from childhood to adulthood, urgency: a common transdiagnostic endo-phenotype for maladaptive risk taking, the dark and light sides of overconfidence, anxiousness and negative affectivity in the personality and internalizing disorders, and interpersonal dependency.
