CHAPTER 7
Discussion and Conclusions: The
Entitled Aggressor

GENERAL DISCUSSION

First, the low explanatory value of these variables in predicting selfreported sexual aggression should be addressed. Clearly, there is more contributing to this behavior than the few personality dimensions and socialization variables that were investigated in this work. Yet, the correlation analyses reveal that narcissism, Machiavellianism and level of sexual experience are positively associated with self-reported aggression. Those with higher Mach, narcissism and experience scores had (statistically) significantly higher mean sexual aggression scores. There were few high aggressors with low narcissism and Machiavellian scores; however, there were a substantial number of high narcs and Machs who reported low sexual aggression.

What are the theoretical implications of this? The most readily apparent one is that other variables are involved in the process that links belief systems or personality dimensions to overt sexually coercive behavior. Narcissism and Machiavellianism are not enough. Such possible predictors could comprise measures of hostility, anger, acceptance of violence, masculinity, or other like constructs. Future research that incorporates these variables could yield stronger predictive measures.
