The Psychopath, the Altruist and the Rest of Us - WSJ:
An interesting article, but very misleadingly simple.
There is an interesting book that I've read and will maybe blog on at some point called "The Psychopath Inside" about a neuroscientist that discovers he is a psychopath. It gives a much better perspective to the psychopath side.
YES, there are brain structures that play a distinctive part, but how you are brought up, your intelligence, your life choices, your relationships and a myriad of other things have HUGE influence as well.
We are a LONG way from looking at one part of the brain and stating "you are a psychopath" or "you are a hyper-altruist"!
