Psychopathic Traits

More and more psychologists are realizing that people can score highly on one or more psychopathic personality traits without having criminal or violent tendencies, such as:

  • Self-centered impulsivity (how selfish you are)
  • Cold heartedness (who switched off you are from other people's suffering)
  • Fearless dominance (being less susceptible to fear, stress, and anxiety)

Could I be a psychopath and not know it?

Men tend to score higher than women on psychopathic traits (self-centered impulsivity, cold-heartedness, and fearless dominance).

In addition to this, people who are in managerial positions also score higher in general along with those who hold far-right beliefs or racist views.
