Psychologists believe that there is a relationship between personality and criminal behavior. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between personality disorders and criminal thinking styles in prisoners convicted of violent crimes. To what extent is there a link between the types of personality disorder, the type of criminal thinking style, and the type of crime in prisoners convicted of violent crime? Is there a relationship between personality disorders in prisoners convicted of violent crimes and their gender? To what extent is there a relationship between the type of personality disorder of prisoners and the frequency of committing violent crimes? These are the factors that led to the research. The research method is a descriptive-correlational study, in which a sample of 996 offenders were selected in terms of demographic characteristics. Data were collected using a questionnaire in two sections: demographic information and Christian Texas Intellectual Thinking Questionnaires and Millon Personality Disorder.
The results show that there is a relationship between the type of personality disorder and the type of crime in prisoners sentenced to violent crimes. Different styles of criminal thinking lead to certain forms of violent crime. It was observed that based on tables and inferential tests, different criminal thinking styles are related to the prevalence of different types of crime. It has been clearly observed that some disorders are more common among women offenders and others are more common among men. However, there are some disorders that are similar in men and women. Different styles of criminal thinking relate differently to the number of crimes, the history of the crime, and the history of the same crime, and this shows that different styles of criminal thinking can create different patterns in the commission of a crime.
