There are many psychopaths in society, in fact, practically know nothing. These are not necessarily psychopaths who commit murder, commit acts of serious violence, or even come to the attention of the police. They can be successful entrepreneurs. They can be successful politicians. Research can be performed successfully. They can be priests success. There are in all areas of society. There is a growing awareness that psychopathic behavior is all around us in all areas of life.

According to popular wisdom, psychopaths are serial murderers and bloodthirsty madman. Reality is not so simple. While many psychopaths do not commit violent crimes, not all psychopaths are criminals and not all criminals are psychopaths. Psychopaths are found in many aspects of life and are often successful in competitive professions. However it was also ruthless, manipulative and destructive. Equinox reports on techniques developed by psychologists to determine whether a person is psychopathic and shows how brain scientists are getting closer to mapping the malfunctions in the brain that causes a person to be a psychopath. In Britain, one person in 200 is probably a psychopath. However, psychopaths are thought to be responsible for half of all reported crimes, which represent between 15% and 20% of the prison population.

The program analyzes the latest research on brain and behavior of psychopaths and assesses the prospects for the treatment or containment of this antisocial group of people who create a disproportionate amount of destruction. Psychopaths who have been convicted of heinous crimes to clearly explain what motivated his behavior disturbing violent and destructive. They speak without shame, guilt, remorse or empathy for their victims.

Though articulate and, at times, plausible and charming, they lack the range of emotions experienced by the rest of society. They know the difference between good and evil, but not sorry. Robert Hare, professor of psychology at the University of Vancouver, has devised a system of assessment called the Psychopathy Checklist. Specialized In interviews, psychologists assess individuals on a scale of 0 to 40 for a series of character traits, including callousness, superficial charm, lack of empathy and many others (for more details on How to recognize a psychopath ). Anyone whose score is greater than 26 were diagnosed as psychotic.
