Personality research with delinquents has largely produced inconclusive and inconsistent results. Peterson, Quay and Cameron (1959) have pointed out that:
Most investigations of personality factors in crime and delinquency have begun with a legally defined sample of offenders, proceeded with comparisons between that group and a more or less carefully matched group of non-offenders, and ended with less ambiguous results.
