Studying Psychopathy

Twenty years of conversations with and brain scans of some of the world’s most callous, uncaring individuals. Could you do it?

Kent Kiehl Psychopath-Whisperer

I’m still uncertain as to whether or not I could. But that’s exactly what Kent Kiehl has done. In this Wired interview he talks about his experiences and the importance of his research. What I found both fascinating and startling: “About one in 150 people will meet the stringent clinical criteria for the disorder.” Remarkable. And surely a sign that psychopathy warrants more of this kind of research.

But c’mon Kent… what’s with the cheesy title of your book?!
