Krueger and colleagues (2011) recently proposed a model and inventory (PID-5) for DSM-5, delineating five higher-order domains of maladaptive personality variation: negative affect, detachment, antagonism, disinhibition, and psychoticism. First, the structural validity of the PID-5 is investigated. A 6-factor structure in the younger sample (N=101), corresponds to the proposed 5-factor structure, with an additional factor measuring hostility and suspiciousness traits. In the older sample (N=174) a 4-factor solution is the best fitting model, pointing out that assessing the structure of traits in different age groups is an important extension of the validation research. We also investigate convergence and divergence between the PID-5 and Livesley's key elements for a pathological personality structure (DAPP-BQ emotional instability, dissocial behavior , inhibitedness and compulsivity). Since the DSM-5 proposal separates traits and personality functioning, we finally examine whether the PID-5 trait dimensions can be differentiated from the Severity Indices of Personality Problems (SIPP) dysfunction dimensions.
