Abstract [en]

Used longitudinal data to test 3 hypotheses: that behavioral inhibition (BI) is a protective factor in the development of delinquency (DL), whereas social withdrawal (SD) is not; that comorbidity of SD and aggression are associated with negative outcomes, whereas comorbidity of BI and aggression is not; and BI might put children at greater risk for later depressive symptoms (DS). Ss were 778 boys (aged 10 yrs) who were studied until age 15. Peer ratings from the Pupil Evaluation Inventory were used to classify Ss on disruptiveness, BI, and SD for ages 10, 11, and 12. Self-reported DS from the Children's Depression Inventory at age 15 was used as the measure of DS, and self-reports of behavior during 1-yr periods prior to the 13-, 14-, and 15-yr assessments were used as the measure of DL. The first 2 hypotheses were supported. Disruptive profiles that did not include BI were significantly linked to outcome profiles that included DL, whereas profiles including BI were not. There was no trade-off between protection against DL and risk for DS. Comorbid disruptiveness and BI and comorbid disruptiveness and SD were linked to different outcomes. The outcomes were different for Ss with BI and SD depending on whether they were disruptive.
