has Anti-Social Personality Disorder or in laymen’s terms the psychopath. The psychopath is probably the

in childhood as a result of heredity, trauma and the lack of emotional development. The lack of moral or
emotional development which gives a sociopath a lack of understanding for other people’s feelings which
enables them to be deceitful without feeling bad about whatever they do. The under developed emotional
system as explained in the video “The World of Personality Disorders volume 5” says the sociopath is
“emotionally retarded” . The sociopathic behavior problems that start as a child have links to
heredity, a family with a pre-disposition to perform crimes, alcoholic parents that do crimes,
irresponsible behavior that persists and parents that do not discipline. The child that will eventually
be a sociopath exhibits certain feeling inside that they are inadequate, shamed and because of that they
are teased and made fun of. The child characteristics of a future sociopath consist of being incapable of
following the rules. The youngster will skip school, bully, steal!

really bad and mean person. There are many characteristics of a sociopath and each sociopath has their
own special traits.

behavior. The violence in many cases is the result of sub-concious decisions that might lead to murdering
or assaulting someone for no reason. When a sociopath is attacking someone they will inflict more pain if
the victim fights back.

feel great about their actions. A sociopath has little self regard for themselves and pays little
attention to their own personal safety when picking fights. Quite often they will be outsized and get
hurt. Some sociopaths are non-violent and stay out of prison by doing small crimes like swindling and
insurance fraud. It is possible that a sociopath will come from a normal home but their are more that do
