Psychopathy is a condition characterized by the absence of empathy and the blunting of other affective states. Callousness, detachment, and a lack of empathy enable psychopaths to be highly manipulative.
Psychopathy can simply be defined as a chronic mental disorder comprised of abnormal and violent social behaviors with little or no remorse or guilt.
The term 'psychopath' is not an official diagnosis. Instead a doctor may diagnose someone with specific traits they associate with antisocial personality disorder (ASPD) like lack of empathy, remorse and persistent antisocial behavior.
The reality of psychopathy is more complicated than just violence. While their elevated impulsiveness, tendency to deflect blame, and other antisocial traits incline them often (but by no means always) to criminality, NOT ALL PSYCHOPATHS ARE KILLERS OR EVEN CRIMINALS, many do not have histories of violence.
There are other personality traits and forms of pathology aside from psychopathy that may contribute to aggressive behavior.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
