yes, it's been some time since I read the book but I think you are correct in there being criteria in the labeling (hate that word label) of a psychopath. Also it isn't something for the untrained. But understanding the basics workings of how someone without a conscience functions is good to know, at least for me. I don't think the psychological community can, but of course it wouldn't stop them, from going to a more soft "anti-social" label because in my opinion I agree with you that it throws out some of the most vital criteria. Guess we do know who would be pushing for something like that.
Robert D. Hare, Phd was the developer of the world's most widely used tools for assessing psychopathy. Chilling stuff.
