I believe that most all of us know or have come in contact with sociopathic individuals without even knowing it.

[Wendy Koenigsmann]Psychopaths cannot be understood in terms of antisocial rearing or development.

Although psychopathy usually is treated as a unitary construct, a seminal theory posits that there are 2 variants: Primary psychopathy is underpinned by an inherited affective deficit, whereas secondary psychopathy reflects an acquired affective disturbance.

The authors investigated whether psychopathy phenotypically may be disaggregated into such types in a sample of 367 prison inmates convicted of violent crimes.

Others around me would get so tired of the whole thing and insinuate that I was perpetuating things. Part of the hurt and damage was done because others could but would not see what was actually happening.

They tend to operate with a grandiose demeanor, an attitude of entitlement, an insatiable appetite, and a tendency toward sadism.

But I believe the defining characteristic traits of sociopaths actually cover a much broader spectrum of individuals than most of us would ever imagine.

The sociopath is that truly self-absorbed individual with no conscience or feeling for others and for whom social rules have no meaning.

The violence continues until it reaches a plateau at age 50 or so, then tapers off.

Their emotionlessness reflects a detached, fearless, and possibly dissociated state, revealing a low-state autonomic nervous system and lack of anxiety.
