The results suggested that conduct problems could generally be described by two bipolar dimensions. The first dimension was an covert-overt dimension. This dimension led to a division of behaviors that was very similar to the results reported by Achenbach et al. (1989). That is, the overt pole consisted of the directly confrontational behaviors such as oppositional defiant behaviors and mild aggression.
