I don’t think that is true as I Used to hold everyone including openly abusive ppl in high regard n projected the best intentions onto them. Yet the results of so much trust were devastating

Though I'm not an expert on the subject, I'm not sure that psychopaths have a totally different CNS. If I recall correctly, only some parts of the brain are "misfiring" and not allowing feeling or affect to arise (or something along those lines).

I have also read that one can feel the presence of someone who lacks empathy. This author of a book on dangerous personalities mentions that it's a feeling of coldness, something about them can make one shudder. The psychopath looks at you as prey, something which considered weak and vulnerable. I suppose it's a look in their eyes, or maybe their entire bearing that betrays them. Yet, they can be glib and sly.

That's about all I recall on the topic.

Finally, I don't think that type of individual is a "jin" or "demon." Embodied evil, maybe, but still very much human and nothing supernatural.

Thanks :) Do you know the author and name of that book you mentioned. I' d like to read it.

I sent you a PM, but I'm unsure if it went through. Please let me know if it did.

I read two books on the topic. The first was a book I read for an English course entitled The Psychopath Test written by Jon Ronson. And the second was Dangerous Personalities by Joe Navarro. Below are the respective links to amazon's pages. ... jon+ronson ... oe+navarro
