From a purely factual & scientific perspective

Psychpathy is a personality disorder. It doesn’t appear as a formal diagnosis in the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) but it is closely associated with antisocial personality disorder or dissocial personality disorder. Here are some of the characteristics. 

  • superficial charm
  • grandiose sense of self-worth
  • pathological lying
  • cunning/manipulative
  • lack of remorse
  • emotional shallowness,
  • lack of empathy

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SOCIOPATH AND PSYCHOPATH

Sociopaths and psychopaths have many characteristics in common but one key difference is that sociopaths may form emotional bonds between people, while psychopaths are unable to. It’s is believed that psychopathy is the result of genetics and faulty wiring in the brain while for sociopaths it is a result of a traumatic childhood and their environment. 

FAULTY BRAIN WIRING

Research from Georgetown University hints that the brain of a psychopath has a smaller and thinner amygdala, the part of the brain that recognizes fear. This may explain why they aren’t afraid and can’t exhibit fear. 

Research from Vanderbilt University has shown psychopaths tend to generate a lot more dopamine. In addition Dr. Kent Kiehl  of the University of New Mexico believes in may be a disorder in the paralimbic system of the brain, a system known to be involved in emotion, inhibition and emotional control.

There isn’t much research funding behind this.

THE POPULAR STIGMA

While yes, many psychopaths have killed, murdered and raped, it’s definitly possible for someone with this disorder to lead a completely normal life and even be successful.

Take neuroscientist James Fallon, for example who discovered he had a similar brains scan to that of a psychopath and after going through a series of genetic tests, it was confirmed.

James never hurt anyone, he does admit he can be a little bit of a jerk sometimes such as not letting his grandchildren win at games, but he is far from dangerous. 

He believes it’s because of his environment, he has a loving home. His parents loved, protected and gave him a lot of attention.

Years later whether or not I have some kind of psychopathic or sociopathic disorder STILL worries me.

Helldag species adopts! They’re all the size of a lion and have the same behaviors as any canine. 

The inner-neck when stretched out is not slimy, but smooth to the touch much like a snake would be. Most have their heads pulled in when on the move or sleeping, as it protects the delicate meat of the neck. Tongues are prehensile and can vary in shapes and sizes.

The bottom pic illustrates the neck extension. Sight is based on smell and vibrations in the air. 

Names, personalities, and genders are up to the buyer.

1 - Sweetgrass : $20
2 - War Drum : SOLD
3 - Thorne : SOLD
4 - Mugma : $25

Just a reminder that there’s two left! I’ll be making a new batch soon but I would rather wait until the last two on this one are sold!

Oh maaan these are great!
