As is known, at psychopaths is characteristic the cruelty in relation to others, are unable to feel the sincere remorse and.they find it harder to feel a sense compassion.

Psychopaths just ignore the information that helps to avoid antisocial behavior: for example, they do not think about the possible punishment, at the time when they are focused on their goals.
