This Charming Psychopath | Psychology Today

This Charming Psychopath | Psychology Today | Everyone is born with evil, some more than others | Scoop.it

Psychopaths are not able to experience empathy as well as another range of emotions, such as fear, in part of nature and biological influences on the fetus during development. As a result, the ability to develop internal controls and a conscience, as well as making emotional connections with people is greatly reduced. These are all problems which can lead to evil.

"A relationship can be made between frontal lobe pathology and aggressive behaviour and also additional brain structures including the temporal lobe and various subcortical structures."

The Moral Molecule: Why some people are evil

The Moral Molecule: Why some people are evil | Everyone is born with evil, some more than others | Scoop.it

The molecule "Oxytocin" resides in the brain and is what makes people feel empathy for others, causing us to behave morally. 5% of people do not have Oxytocin released from their brain when they're suppose to, many of these people are similair to psychopaths. Lack of Oxytocin is a reason people are evil, and since that is something that can't be controlled, it's simply how one was born, this proves that evil is something we're born with.

Murderous Children: 11 Year Old Serial Killer Mary Bell

Murderous Children: 11 Year Old Serial Killer Mary Bell | Everyone is born with evil, some more than others | Scoop.it

 11 year old girl, Mary Bell, kills and mutilates for pleasure. One child had the letter "M" scratched into his stomach with a pair of scissors.  Mary targeted younger children and her tactic was strangulation. She was quoted saying "I like hurting little things that can't fight back." Mary is described from being "manipulative and intelligent, to violent and a frequent liar." Many times she also appeared emotionless and unresponsive, leading psychiatrists to believe she was a psychopath. Being a psychopath strikes an interesting dilema to me. It is said that psychopath's can't feel anything, but yet they claim they kill because they enjoy it... this means they can feel. In order for them to feel good they have to perform acts of evil.  Thus psychopathy must be a disorder derived from evil.

The Neurobiology of Evil | Going Mental | Big Think | Everyone is born with evil, some more than others | Scoop.it

Murderers and other violent criminals have been shown to have amygdalae that are smaller or that don’t function properly. Amygdalae allows an individual to respond to the facial expressions of others, as well as promotes a moral system. When it isn't working properly people are more likely to do evil things.  7 specific genes have been identified that are linked to antisocial or aggressive behavior and are thought to organize how brain growth is structured:  MAOA, 5HTT, BDNF, NOTCH4, NCAM, tlx, and Pet-1-ETS
