    Overcome our need for survival? Why would you do that? Isn't that what our basic instincts are?

    One of my exes used to tell me that I should be most afraid of people who attend church several times a week, only watch Disney movies, and appear to be completely without darkness, because those are the REAL psychos. I tend to kind of believe that.
    Their not any "more" phsycho, you just need to fear not fearing them.

    since you're talking about impulses and brain chemistry in decision making, wouldn't it be better to say it's all physics, not biology? Biology has a very limited capability of explaining brain behaviors. you need electricity to understand cognitive processing in neuron nets and Biochem processes are supposed to fall under physics as well, so i think Dr House needs a lesson on science categories.

    anyway i don't know what "base instincts" refers to, so *Shrug*

    Actually, my theory is that they're more likely to snap and shoot people at McDonald's.

    Yeah but behaving as a result of stimuli like a trigger or "snapping" isnt the behaviour of a psychopath or sociopath their behaviour isnt context specific and they dont behave as a consequence of a trigger they're just without conscience.

    I think you're getting a bit to involved with the exact, scientific meaning of the words Sunshine used. I believe she was using them in a much looser sense. I think she simply ment "people with high potential for extreme violence" rather than any specific psychological condition.

    Cool, I thought she was talking about psychopathy, I'm in and out of this thread and didnt read all the posts.

    I reckon that highly strung people who can crack and possibly a bigger threat than people who're wired to kill but learnt how to control it.

    Those who restrain their desires, do so because theirs is weak enough to be restrained.

    People can sublimate though.
