Are Sociopaths Born or Made?

Of course, many sociopaths suffer horrible childhoods but likewise, many people suffer tremendous physical and emotional abuse as a child but eventually become productive adults who have learned to cope with terrible memories and trauma.

A prevailing theory among psychologists today about the roots of sociopathy involves genetics and the possibility that sociopathy is actually a genetic disorder similar in nature to Down Syndrome or hemophilia. Geneticists haven’t yet determined if a sociopathic “gene” exists but have found genetic similarities in people diagnosed with antisocial personalty disorder and/or sociopathy.



Currently studying Psychotherapy , Cognitive psychology, Biological psychology, Counselling psychology and CBT. I believe in truth, honesty and integrity! ≧◔◡◔≦
