Exploring Relationships between the Endorsement of Stalking Attitudes and Executive Functioning, Impulsiveness, and Perfectionism
MetadataShow full item record
Planning and problem-solving, impulsivity, and perfectionism were examined to determine their influence on the development/maintenance of gender-specific stalking-related attitudes. Other-orientated perfectionism, and socially prescribed perfectionism significantly correlated with, and predicted the endorsement of stalking-related attitudes for women only. Motor impulsivity significantly correlated with, and predicted the endorsement of stalking-related attitudes for men only. The results suggests that perfectionism, and impulsivity may be unique predictors in endorsing stalking-related attitudes for females, and males, respectively.
