I seriously beleive that I know a Psychopath in real life. They haven't murdered anyone (yet) but you don't have to be a murderer to be a Psychopath.
Psychopathy was first definitively described by psychiatrist Hervey M. Cleckley in 1941, who explained that it consists of specific behaviors and personality traits. In a Scientific American article, psychopaths are described as superficially charming but also self-centered, undependable, dishonest, and individuals who will sometimes do irresponsible things just because they feel like it. They are basically without feelings of guilt, love, or empathy, and thus their relationships with others are casual.
Psychopaths typically blame others for their irresponsible actions and reckless behaviors and rarely learn from their mistakes. Although about 25 percent of prison inmates meet the diagnostic criteria for psychopathy, research also indicates that “a sizable number” of psychopaths are part of the general population. Some experts have even suggested that they “may be overrepresented” in occupations such as politics and business.
