    • It’s a topic that’s been fascinating me for a while, because there are some people one comes across that seem to have no capacity for empathy. To study these, gives a pretty solid foundation for genuine arch-villains for stories.

      The villains that turn good in Solar Wind are almost exclusively broken wings of some sort who only need to have a reason to have their humanity rekindled, or are perhaps lashing out in pain and putting on a tough front. The villains that stay bad (and come to a sticky end) all have this defect that they simply don’t have empathy and only see others as either something to plunder, use, manipulate or remove (kill to get them out of the way). They would be the ones who would use concepts like “collateral damage” and refer to humans as resources rather than people. Eerily like our politicians…

  1. I am not sure that the part regarding this being acquired rather than inherited behaviour is completely correct. It would seem that some people are born with a defect that makes them this way inclined.

    • You know, I agree with you. I don’t think it develops – if it does, it would have to be very early childhood damage, like in MPD, but I have an impression (by no means scientifically proven though) that this is a genetic or birth defect.

    • Like so many things, this is an ‘unpopular’ view people are hesitant in putting forward. Lack of empathy, and total self-centredness, are things that do manifest from early ages with no clear influence from the social or physical environment.

    • Thinking about it, most toddlers do go through such a phase… but are quickly taught better. Perhaps it is an inborn incapacity to learn this particular social skill, and the message gets derailed by the higher intelligence into something that suits the narcissist (psychopaths are rarely dumb brutes).

  2. I’m with Ark on this. It’s a highly debatable piece – by which I mean that although it appears to be broadly accurate there are some sweeping statements, and some with which I could imagine an expert in the field offering more/better explanation – written by a layman (for want of a better word) and not very well put together. It’s the sort of thing someone could cobble together after half-an-hour’s Googling. It’s not entirely without merit, and the site itself, which gives more-or-less free rein to its contributors, is fundamentally a good idea. Nevertheless I’m wondering why you reblogged this particular article.

    • I did a little research on the topic after coming across a blog site touting the power of Jesus about a religious nutter called David Wood who set bout his father’s head with a hammer …. because he felt like it. He later ”found Jesus” (probably in an alley or a dustbin or somewhere similar ) and became a minister. He is still creepy and a nob.

      Psychopaths are apparently considered incurable – god or no god.

    • I like that it invites debate. Yes, I agree with you too, M, it is probably a layman’s viewpoint. I reblogged it because it raises many valid points, some more strongly than others. I’ve been observing how some people (public figures, as well as some people we came across in our lives) go about things. There are actions some people – I almost want to say, commit, that are solely aimed at manipulating those around them; while a manipulator isn’t necessarily a psychopath, where exactly does that line run?

      I am working through a lot of personal issues, including trying to understand how those guys’ minds worked who entered our house moving like an army squad, professional, silent, coordinated, dressed and armed for assassinating someone; why they didn’t simply shoot me down when I screamed (it would have been a knee-jerk thing, yet they didn’t), and why they shot Iain down, just when they were already practically out of the property – they didn’t have to! It was too deliberate to be a drug-induced action. This leads me to wonder, many things.

      But I have been interested in the topic before, because I like investigating what makes believable villains for my novels.
