The Science of Preventing Dangerous Psychopathy

Clinically known as anti-social personality disorder in the DMS-V, some troublesome psychopathic traits include:

  • An egocentric identity
  • Absence of pro-social standards in goal-setting
  • Lack of empathy
  • Incapacity for mutually intimate relationships
  • Manipulativeness
  • Deceitfulness
  • Callousness
  • Irresponsibility, impulsivity and risk taking
  • Hostility

Although these characteristics may be unpleasant, not all psychopaths are dangerous or criminals, and not all dangerous criminals are psychopaths. Counter-intuitively there are pro-social psychopaths too. Nonetheless, some psychopaths do pose a genuine threat for the safety of others.
