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



I hear both the nature and nurture arguments and believe it probably falls somewhere on a scale in between the two depending upon the sociopath. With my sociopath it is relatively clear to me he was born like that. Juvenile problems. Problems with police from an early age. When asked why his mother moved out of the state when he was a teen, he told me “to get away from me.” Then his daughter was having truancy and other legal issues. Then I discovered his father he never knew was in prison for murder. A very strong biological component in this sociopath’s case… I cant say it was because of his upbringing. I think he does intentionally hurt to get pleasure from it and to get what he wants. I think he knows its morally wrong but doesn’t care because he has no morals.
