abstract

  • Individuals with different personality disorders are hypothesized to approach decision making with a variety of concerns related to their perception of their general efficacy, information demands, risk aversion, and utility of gains and losses. A variation of modern portfolio theory is employed to examine decision-making in a clinical population of adult patients. Variations along personality dimensions were related to a number of decision-making concerns and strategies. The implications of these findings are examined in the clinical treatment of personality disorders.
