Richard Kuklinski "The Iceman"
Richard Leonard "The Iceman" Kuklinski was born April 11, 1935 in Jersey City, New Jersey. He came from an abusive family, as his father Stanley Kuklinski was an alcoholic who frequently beat his wife, Anna as well as Richard and his brother Joseph. Throughout his tumultuous childhood, he often fantasized about killing his father. It was something he carried with him the rest of his life. By the mid 1950's, Richard's reputation had grown as him being an explosive pool shark, who silenced anyone who annoyed him.
Jeffrey Dahmer was born in Milwaukee on May 21, 1960. He committed his first murder when he killed Steven Hicks with a blow to the head. Dahmer killed 17 males, molesting some of them, between 1978 to 1991. He had subsequently dismembered many of them and even consumed their flesh, as well as keeping body parts in his fridge. When asked why he had eaten parts of some of the bodies, he had stated that he wanted to "keep their essence with him". Once caught, he was sentenced to fifteen consecutive life terms in 1992. On November 28, 1994, Dahmer was murdered by fellow prisoner Christopher Scarver.
Lykken studies revealed that psychopaths are born with temperamental differences that lead them to being risk seekers, impulsive, fearless as well as not being able to socialize normally. Sociopaths have normal temperaments, and their personality disorder tends to effect their lives regarding parenting, peers, and their intelligence.
A 2010 study Hare co-authored that found about 4% of senior managers displayed psychopathic tendencies, up from the 1% that researchers say could normally be found in society.
Have you known a manipulator of people around you who seem emotionally cold and uncaring and only seem concerned with their own gain? If you have, chances are, you have dealt with a sociopath. Unfortunately for them, there is no known cure or affective treatment for this disorder. It makes me thankful for what I have.

Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health, said. "The findings may help us find new ways to intervene before a personality trait becomes antisocial behavior."
I suspect, from personal experience, that more than 1 in 25 managers are psychopaths.
Psychopaths are unable to emotionally identify with others. In contrast, he believed narcissists to have the capacity to identify with and admire powerful people, “which permits at least some loyalty and good object relations to be internalized."
The World Health Organization's International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, tenth edition (ICD-10), defines a conceptually similar disorder to antisocial personality disorder called (F60.2) Dissocial personality disorder.
It is characterized by at least 3 of the following:
-Callous unconcern for the feelings of others.
-Gross and persistent attitude of irresponsibility and disregard for social norms, rules, and obligations.
-Incapacity to maintain enduring relationships, though having no difficulty in establishing them.
-Very low tolerance to frustration and a low threshold for discharge of aggression, including violence.
-Incapacity to experience guilt or to profit from experience, particularly punishment.
-Markedly prone to blame others or to offer plausible rationalizations for their behavior.
There may be persistent irritability as an associated feature.
The diagnosis includes what may be referred to as amoral, antisocial, psychopathic, and sociopathic personality (disorder).
The criteria specifically rule out conduct disorders. Dissocial personality disorder criteria differ from those for antisocial and sociopathic personality disorders.
It is a requirement of ICD-10 that a diagnosis of any specific personality disorder also satisfies a set of general personality disorder criteria.

I say this because someone previously mentioned that a sociopath is learned, where a psychopath is genetic.
This is very similar to the comment that I made on a psychopath being more organized and obsessive, rather than unorganized and impulsive.
See if you can figure out why I said this?
