Reply To: Do psychopaths hurt intentionally or do they lack emotional ability



I would say both. They do intentionally hurt others and they do lack emotional ability to care about how their actions harm others.

My ex husband/narc/pervert knew exactly what he was doing when he deceived me and others. The porn, web cam sites, internet hook up sites, voyeuring neighbors, stealing from employers- was all carefully and methodically planned. The fact that he went through great lengths to hide his behaviors says he knew he was harming others.

My take on this is that yes he cared about the consequences of getting caught (jail, divorce), but he did not care about the feelings of his victims (including me).
