dc.description.abstractThe current study investigated the personality subgroups of juvenile offenders and determined if significant differences in personality existed between deprived and non-deprived juvenile offenders. The Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-Adolescent Version (Butcher et al., 1992) was administrated to 331 juvenile offenders. Two hundred eighty seven cases were used to complete the analysis. A four stage approach of data analysis was utilized, which included a pre-analysis data-examination and data preparation stage (Stage 1), cluster analyses on the entire data set in Stage 2, and examination of differences between deprived and non-deprived juvenile offenders in Stage 3. Stage 4 concluded the statistical process of the study with a One Way ANOVA providing a detailed analysis of differences via deprivation. Three distinct clusters were established: normative/oppositional; normative/defended; and the withdrawn detached. Significance between group differences were extrapolated.
