Debunking Some Myths About Psychopathic Personalities

This post is shared and is fantastic and true, the below excerpt is to a “T”:

“He or she is so much like us in most ways except this one–when we know are hurting or violating someone (or have done so) to satiate an impulse or gratification, we feel uncomfortable, internally conflicted, ambivalent, BAD. We will lose sleep. When we contemplate taking something from someone (or when we’ve seized it) because we want it, aware of the cost and harm to that individual’s welfare, safety and dignity, we feel disconcerted, rumblings of inner disquiet.

The psychopath doesn’t. The psychopath’s incapacity of conscience detaches him or her from these feelings, freeing him or her from a deeper sense of obligation to treat others with decency, with dignity.”
