The social environment in which the psychopath grows up is responsible for further enhancing it or not. It's thought that about 1% of the population is made up of psychopaths. If you add narcissism and sociopathy to it, that percentage goes up quite a bit. They are actually quite easily detectable, since you will find them in any kind of occupation or activity that needs a lack of empathy or moral, to function succesfully. As @ink already suggested, a test with MRI (because psychopathy is a biological detectable defect that can be seen on a MRI scan) or the specially designed tests to detect it in someone's personality, can wash them out and that knowledge used to restrict them from certain positions to avoid future problems. It is a bit tricky to do that though. These people also have the right to full freedom, and restricting them would infringe on that. But, mechanisms could be thought out to include them completely but prevents their psychopathic traits to cause harm (to the suggested principle of "allow no harm"). 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
