COMMISSION OF CRIME: GENDER DIFFERENCES OR UNREASONED ACTION?
Crime had always been evident in human history; despite recent technological and information management advancement of the twenty first century there is a decent rise. The type of crime is usually an issue in understanding criminal activities. This study examined the relationship between gender and type of crime committed, and relationship between impulsivity and types of crime. Using an ex post facto design, conveniently drawing from 945 convicted and awaiting trial inmates, 102 convicted inmates. We found there was significant influence of impulsivity on the type of crime committed (X2=3.012; df =1; P<.05) while there was no significant difference among males and females on the types of crime (X2 =.005; df=1; P>.05). Impulsivity influenced the type of crime committed and need for more proactive efforts to help impulsive inmates for better living after prison terms and level playing ground for both male and female to reduce their crime involvement.
