The evidence for him being an interpersonal psychopath is when he acted superficially to most of the people, and didn’t show most of his inner feelings. He didn’t control anything or pathologically had lied to people, so he didn’t show many characteristics from interpersonal. He is certainly not an affective psychopath or psychotic person because he attended not to feel any guilt against the victims. He also didn’t fail to feel responsibility even once in his life. It is because, he never thought about responsibility.
The study was conducted by surveying 2,199 adolescents from the data of National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. The adolescents were asked to do a Depression Screener and also were asked questions that consisted to spot the depression signal. The results were that female adolescents tends to usually have higher depression rate than male adolescents. According to the study, girls are more likely to have higher depression rates because their puberty usually occurs earlier than male adolescent (Moreh and O’Lawrence, 2016) “Depressive disorders are more than twice as common in girls as in boys possibly because of differences in coping styles during puberty” (Bhatia & Bhatia, 2007). Puberty usually causes adolescents to enter depression because of the changes they have to adapt to, which usually gives them stress.
Le Doux stated that the amygdala is involved in aversive conditioning and instrumental learning (as cited in Blair 2003) It is also involved in facial expressions and all the processes that when impaired are the functional impairments shown in psychopathy, therefore amygdala dysfunction is implicated in the pathology of psychopathy (Blair, Morris, Frith, Perrett, & Dolan, 1999). As one of the main symptoms of psychopathy set out by Cleckley, Hare and Lilienfield is an inability to recognise emotions and feelings in others this would suggest that psychopathy is of a biological nature. The orbital frontal cortex is one of the most notable areas involved in psychopathy in regard to Dr Harlow's Phineas Gage case study in 1948. According to Dr Harlow, Gage suffered major trauma to the prefrontal cortex and was transformed from a responsible railroad manager to an impulsive, irresponsible verbally abusive individual. Blumer and Benson (1975) argue that damage to the orbital frontal cortex as described in Phineas Gage case study leads to a condition called "pseudopsychopathy" (as cited in Kiehl
RESEARCH ON JEALOUSY: IMPACT OF SEXUAL VS. EMOTIONAL INFIDELITY Researchers at Chapman University have completed the largest study to date into the effects of sexual and emotional infidelity on jealousy finding that men and women respond differently. Jealousy can cause marital breakup, violence, and heartache and understanding the causes may help ameliorate the effects. Over sixty thousand people aged between eighteen and sixty-five with an average age of 35 to 40 were interviewed as to what their feelings would be should their partner commit either sexual or emotional infidelity. The results showed that heterosexual men were more likely to be jealous if their partner committed sexual infidelity 65% compared to 35% of heterosexual women.
It also have been discovered that it is linked between alcohol abuse and low L-tryptophan can cause violent behavior. According to the case study conducted by Buyden et al , they discovered that individuals that have low plasma levels in L-tryptophan and abuse alcohol are likely to committed violent crimes. Other theorist s discovered increase of aggressive behavior in violent offenders because high plasma levels of tryptophan. It has only been two case studies were conducted to evaluate the high levels of plasma in L-tryptophan, and it caused aggressive behavior in male. Eriksson and Lidberg had found that high levels plasma in
This cannot be found in psychopath ii) This is because psychopath lack empathy meaning that whenever they do something bad or violent they do not feel remorse (Marsh , 2013) b) The brain region that controls emotions does not get activated in psychopath i) insula and cingulate cortex region of our brains are activated when we have emotions or see the emotions of others. ii) Psychopath were told to watch a violent movie and scientist found that the insula and cingulate cortex region that controls the emotions were not activated as much. iii) This means that they aren 't able to feel much empathy causing them to commit such violent crimes (Keysers, 2013). Conclusion: Review: Since we established that psychopath have certain characteristic or traits such as speech pattern, abnormal sexual behavior and lack of emotional control.You will now be able to identify a psychopath End-Statement So, now whenever you walk into a classroom or meet someone new you will be able to identify if they are a psychopath or
In doing these acts he had shown that he is indifferent to the safety or protection of others and himself. This kind of behaviour is usually associated with antisocial personality disorder (APD). 1.4) Antisocial personality disorder
The 1971 film, A Clockwork Orange, consists of many psychological concepts. Two concepts in particular seem to have the biggest impact and role throughout this film. These concepts being, classical conditioning and the idea that our environment and our experiences of nurture are what shapes us. A Clockwork Orange is the story of a group of young men who take pleasure in committing crimes and causing others to feel pain, they call themselves the “Droogs”. Alex, the group leader, suffers from Antisocial Personality Disorder, a disorder also known as “psychopath”.
However, some serial killers are people with an antisocial disorder otherwise known as psychopaths. Psychopaths suffer from lack of empathy, go against social norms, and exceptionally hostile. These people do not have moral sense, so their conscience will not intervene when they commit an unethical crime. Similar to mental problems, brain damage can make a person lose a sense of control and reason caused by damage to frontal lobe, the hypothalamus and the limbic system (Woollaston). Serial killers do not have remorse or morals, therefore they do not feel regret to be taking a human being's
Some crimes involved nonviolent behavior, including property theft and drug-dealing. Others, however, had been found guilty of repeatedly engaging in extremely violent offenses, including at least ten acts of murder and/or assault. In all, 215 participants were classified as "nonviolent offenders," while 538 were deemed "violent". A subgroup of the violent offender group included 84 people who were deemed "extremely violent", according to the study. DNA samples from the criminals were compared to the DNA of more than 2,000 non-incarcerated Finnish citizens who'd given DNA samples for a previous
Ted Bundy is infamously known as a serial killer, kidnapper, rapist, and necrophile who assaulted and murdered at least thirty women. His charm, cold-heartedness, deceitfulness, deception, and lack of empathy and remorse qualify him as a pure sociopath. Jeffrey Dahmer is another notorious case of sociopaths. He was a serial killer, cannibal, and rapist, who was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, schizotypal personality disorder, and psychotic disorder—all of which are subtypes of personality disorders. Even after his diagnosis, however, the court found him legally sane at his trial.
For example, a Bureau of Justice Statistics survey found that in 2005, “64 percent of jailed inmates self-reported as having some kind of mental illness” (Ollove 2015). Those “with serious psychiatric illness may be more likely to abuse drugs than most other sectors of the population” and “they may continue to do so even after being admitted to [the] hospital” (Wills 2005). Additionally, poverty, education, and family environments have large impacts on levels of crime. For these reasons, true justice requires that any punishment or consequence take these other factors into
