Traits Of A Psychopath


by William Thomas



Society can’t function without psychopaths. That’s what the shrinks tell us. Problem is, in this hyper-kinetic world of increasingly dire unintended consequences, it can’t afford psychos in high places. Especially when they’re willing and able to carry the rest of us off the roof. 

Psychos unmasked...

“We presume that we see the world in roughly the same way, that we all know certain basic facts, that words mean the same things to you as they do to me. And we assume that we have pretty similar ideas of right and wrong. But for a… not that small subset of the population,” reports Tom Chivers, “these people lack remorse and empathy and feel emotion only shallowly. In extreme cases, they might not care whether you live or die. These people are called psychopaths.


“Professor Robert Hare is a criminal psychologist, and the creator of the PCL-R, a psychological assessment used to determine whether someone is a psychopath.


‘A high-scoring psychopath views the world in a very different way,’ says Hare. ‘It’s like colour-blind people trying to understand the colour red, but in this case “red” is other people’s emotions.” [Telegraph Apr 6/14]


Hare’s test includes 20 criteria for identifying psychos. Don’t worry, they’re everywhere. Especially, studies show, among corporate CEOs and politicians, where being willing to abuse people is a job requirement..

Psycho Or Socio?

“Basically, high-scoring psychopaths can be brilliant bosses but only ever for short term,” Jon Ronson, author of The Psychopath Test: A Journey Through the Madness Industry, told Forbes. “They always want to make a killing and move on.”


“In the early 1800s, doctors who worked with mental patients began to notice that some of their patients who appeared outwardly normal had what they termed a ‘moral depravity’ or ‘moral insanity,’ in that they seemed to possess no sense of ethics or of the rights of other people,” writes William Hirstein PhD.


The term ‘psychopath’ was first applied to these people around 1900. The term was changed to ‘sociopath’” in the 1930s to emphasize the damage they do to society. Currently researchers have returned to using the term psychopath’. 

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders – DSM IV – contains a category for “antisocial personality disorder”. The World Health Organization calls it "dissocial personality disorder".


You get the drift…


William Hirstein – PhD author of Brain Fiction: Self-Deception and the Riddle of Confabulation and Mindmelding: Consciousness, Neuroscience, and the Mind’s Privacy, runs down the list. Know anyone displaying frequent fits who fits?

1. Uncaring, cold-heartedness. Criteria for dissocial personality disorder include a “callous unconcern for the feelings of others.”

The brains of psychopaths have been found to have weak connections among the components of the brain’s emotional systems. These disconnects are responsible for the psychopath’s inability to feel emotions deeply.


Psychopaths have shallow emotions. They show a lack of emotion, especially the social emotions, such as shame, guilt, and embarrassment.

Psychopaths are notorious for their lack of fear.


Psychopaths are also not good at detecting fear in the faces of other people.

2. Irresponsible: Psychos blame others for events that are actually their fault.



3. Insincere speech: Ranging from what the PCL describes as “glibness” and “superficial charm” to “untruthfulness” and “insincerity” to outright “pathological lying” … to “conning others for personal profit or pleasure” by lying with the straightest face.


Psychopaths do not show a differential brain response to emotional terms over neutral terms that normal people do. They also have trouble understanding metaphors and abstract words.



4. Overconfidence: The PCL describes sociopaths as possessing a “grandiose sense of self-worth.” They are also prone to frequent (wait for it...) Boastfulness.

5. Narrowing of attention: Normal people engaged in a task are

able to alter their activity depending on relevant peripheral information that appears after the task has begun. Because psychopaths are specifically deficient in this ability, and are not distracted, they actually perform better than normal people. (If being oblivious to negative feedback is “better”.)



6. Selfishness: The PPI calls this psychopathic trait, a “carefree nonplanness.” (In plainer speech: Make it up as you go. You can’t “get lost” if you’re already clueless – and don’t know it.)

7. Violence: Criteria for dissocial personality include a “very low tolerance to frustration and a low threshold for discharge of aggression, including violence.”
