Psychopathic criminals have empathy switch

Psychopathic criminals have empathy switch

This is a really interesting concept. As a psychology major, I find topics like this fascinating. It actually reminds me of an episode of Dexter that I watched. Dexter was questioning his ability to love and empathize because he is a “psychopath” due to something Deb had said. It makes sense though that psychopaths should be able to empathize, otherwise how could some of them be so charming? This is a great research area and I can’t wait to read more about it.
