Psychopathic personalities and developmental systems

Abstract: Is psychopathy born or made? Contemporary psychopathy research shows that there is much wrong with this question. It is increasingly accepted that the development of psychopathy is dependent on multiple causal factors interacting with one another. However, there remains the major theoretical challenge of understanding the relations between these multiple causal factors in the developmental process. In this paper, I argue that the conventional picture of geneenvironment interactionism does not offer an adequate… Show more

“…If psychopathy is maintained in populations under frequency dependent selection, then we should expect psychopathy to have a strong genetic component (Fitzpatrick et al, 2007;Trotter and Spencer, 2007). However, recent evidence shows that psychopathy is the result of multiple genetic and environmental factors which interact in dynamic ways (for a comprehensive review on this topic see Maung et al, 2021). Psychopathy might have a genetic component as…”

“…At a molecular level this occurs through epigenetic processes which alter genetic expression without changing genetic sequences, and this in turn irreversibly alters the development of an individual (Lea et al, 2017). Recent evidence shows that genes and the environment are interdependent in predicting individual susceptibility to psychopathy (Maung et al, 2021). Accordingly, individuals with an inherited risk might develop the condition only in the presence of environmental triggers, and vice-versa.…”

“…Similarly, Trevarthen (2016) also believed that personality can be spotted as early as on infants because it is inborn. The belief that personality is inborn is emphasised in a study by Maung (2021) who also believed that personality can be spotted as early as after birth because people are born with their personalities. Be that as it may, different researchers such as Satpathy (2021) have different views regarding the origin of personality.…”

“…The causal origins of psychopathy are not established, with research suggesting the etiological heterogeneity of the disorder (Brinkley et al, 2004; Frazier et al, 2019; Maung, 2021). Much like other behavioral and personality phenotypes, prior research indicates a substantial genetic component to psychopathy (Beaver et al, 2011; Bezdjian et al, 2011; Larsson et al, 2006).…”
