    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.

    I have not been able to find anything regarding psychopaths marrying each other. hmmm...


    I'm wondering if certain careers and certain interests are common among psychopaths. If that is the case, then maybe they would be more apt to find each other.

    Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs was supposed to be modeled on the pure psychopath. I think I read that what makes them unique is that they can't even tell the difference between right and wrong. Just the fact that I know that rules me out, wheewww, lol. Thank God. hahaha
