    We've found some evidence towards psychopathy being genetic.
    Here is a study finding a link:
    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2242349/
    It also has a visible impact on neurological structure, such that often the more reliable way of discovering a psychopath is via study of the brain.

    I'd love to understand the reasons you're thinking of. Could it be a test of some kind, to be able to live a productive life without empathy (more distance from spirit) while doing no harm? No idea. Just grasping at straws.

    I agree that it's likely chosen by males before birth not just to learn specific lessons but to ensure success with women as well.

    How do you figure?

    There are female psychopaths as well as male psychopaths.

    Also, being a psychopath by no means ensures success with women -- why would you think it does? And if you do think that, you should also think it would ensure that psychopathic women would succeed with men. Not to mention that not everyone is heterosexual, regardless of gender or mental health.

    Yep. Enjoy your certainty there, just as scientists are enjoying their certainty.

    Straw-grasp duly acknowledged.

    BINGO! As always, dear Nirvana, I love your answer ;-)!

    Why? This particular answer is sexist.

    I think Roberta's use of the wink, tongue-in-cheek emoticon was a hint at what she really felt.
