A human equation

Behavior is a function of both the person and the environment (system).
~ Kurt Lewin (1936)

This means that one's behavior is related to both one's personal characteristics and to the social situation in which one finds oneself.

Kurt Lewin (1890-1947) was a famous, charismatic psychologist who is now viewed as the father of social psychology.  Born in Germany, Lewin emigrated to the USA as a result of World War II. 

Lewin viewed the social environment as a dynamic field which impacted in an interactive way with human consciousness.  Adjust elements of the social environment and particular types of psychological experience predictably ensue.  In turn, the person's psychological state influences the social field or milieu.

Neurological basis for lack of empathy in psychopaths

Neurological basis for lack of empathy in psychopaths | TEDxHayward 2013 | Scoop.it

When individuals with psychopathy imagine others in pain, brain areas necessary for feeling empathy and concern for others fail to become active and be connected to other important regions involved in affective processing and decision-making, reports a study published in the open-access journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience.
