A sociopath is born a sociopath with no c omniscience and often very “power hungry’. In the except The Making Of a Serial Killer by Beret Broader states “the Minnesota twin study shown that psychopaths is 60 percent heritable.
The is percentage indicates that psychopaths traits are due more to DNA than to upbringing” (1) The first indication of this is, sociopaths are born being a sociopath they don’t develop it over time in the study of the tiepin’s ” the recent genetic studies of the twins mind states that identical twins may not be as genetically similar as hitherto assumed” (Broader 1). In a edition to that first example, when compared to the average person when taking a brain sac n there is a lot of activity going on in frontal lob. Therefore, less activity in the brain equals to lee as emotions which equals to no conscience.
In the excerpt The Neuroscience Who Discovered He Was a Psychopath y Joseph Storm berg states ” one afternoon in October 2005, neuroscience J am sees Fallen was looking at the brain scans of serial killers. As part of a research pro eject at LICK Irvine, he was sifting through thousands of PET scans to find anatomical patterns in t he brain that correlated with psychopathic tendencies in the real world” (2). This shows that sociopaths are born being sociopaths rather than gaining it. Waters 2 Next, sociopaths not having a conscience ” I don’t feel guilty for anything. E sorry for people who feel guilt” (Bundy 1 This is a quote from Ted Bundy who was an American serial oilier, kidnapper, rapist, and necrophilia who assaulted and murdered numerous us young women and girls during the asses and had no remorse doing it. With that in mind, Sociopaths not having a conscience and lacking emotion when sociopaths look around them and see that they don’t have the emotional attachment that other people may have with each other t hey don’t think that something as serious as being a sociopath is wrong with them they just look a tit as if they are unique.
Another good example is, Skip also known as “Super Skip” who uses s tragedies and manipulation as the only thrills he knows in sexually assaulting and blowing u bullfrogs, and he has spent his entire life getting better and better at the game moving up to the e CEO of his company, marrying a billionaire’s daughter having two girls by her and it was all just for show. Yet the best quote that shows this is, In the book The Sociopath Next Door by Martha Stout states “But then he apparently struck by something funny, and he replier d to her protest with an earthier grin. We both know she’ll never know what hit he’ (42). This is how sociopaths don’t have a conscience. The third and final example of what makes a sociopath is some of them being “power angry’. Skip Another good example is, Skip the sociopath who blew up frogs at a young age. As he grew older he went to more extreme measures and began to sexually a assault his assistants, but with all of his money and his power he seemed to make his problems just go away. But skip was so valuable to the organization that each time a problem came up, Arias simply disbursed another check to make sure it went away”(Stout 42). On top of that, at the you Eng age Of 8 skip Waters 3 began blowing up frogs with firecrackers and doing this made him feel like he had the power over the frogs. This shows that some sociopaths are “power hungry’. So it is clear to see that, sociopaths are born sociopaths, they have no conics once and some may even be power hungry. Since everyone simply assumes that cons mince is universal among human beings, hiding the fact that you are conscienceless is nearly off artless” (Stout 1). And so therefore, your closest friends, family members could be a sociopath a ND you wouldn’t even suspect it. Truly, when you think about a sociopath you think about a “kill lee or “a crazy person” but in reality a sociopath is just a person with a antisocial personality ND not all kill.
