So I was listening to a recent podcast of This American Life about psychopaths.
* They represent approximately1% of the population
* 4% of business leaders of psychopaths
* Roughly 25% of people in prison are psychopaths.
* From what I understand so far, psychopaths do not feel regret.
Statistically, there are probably some psychopaths on RJ. I don't think it would be fair to point them out or play guesses on who might be one or not. However, it might make it easier to understand some people better.
I have a neighbor that I have always wondered about. Actually, I think both the husband and wife may be psychopaths. Most neighbors have thought the same thing about them. I wonder if it would be common for psychopaths to marry each other. Do you think that there might be any studies on this?
Anyways, I honestly don't know much about them. I don't know if there is effective medication available to help them.
