Lord J Posted June 4, 2011 Share Posted June 4, 2011 So I recently finished reading Jon Ronson's "The Psychopath Test", which is about the history of modern psychiatry in general, but focuses very closely on Robert Hare's psychopathy inventory. I had read "The Men Who Stare at Goats" (and I kinda want to reread it now), and picked this up mostly because of the author's name. Anyway, long story short, loved it, am a little worried that i've started grading everyone I meet (including myself) on the psychopath index, and interested in what you guys have to say on the topic (not to call anyone out, but) particularly you, Flibble. Can psychopathy be treated? Are they really different from us? Does psychopathy serve evolutionary/social purposes? How useful is the Hare inventory?
