BR: Analyzing the lyrics to the song; what comes to mind when you think about the song; try to figure out the definition of a psychopath based on the song


Definition- a person who is incapable of feeling normal emotions; they are generally cunning and manipulative; know the difference between right and wrong but dismiss it as applying to them.


History - Earliest explanation of psychopathology is the possession by evil spirits and demons in the late 16th - 17 centuries. Some believed remedies were to torture the person to chase the demon out.

  • Ex. Witch trails- Many women were murdered due to the false belief of possession.
what causes this lack of empathy

Most psychopaths were abused or neglected as children. Being treated poorly early on can set up a child to see everyone else as selfish and cruel, causing them to replicate that kind of behavior as a way to cope with a nasty, uncaring world.

What causes this lack of empathy?
psychological approaches

The biological approach would say that some psychopaths have inherited their characteristics of having little to no empathy towards others. Do you agree?


Based on Freud’s theories he would say that psychopaths are acting out based on their childhood experiences of being abused, neglected, etc.

Psychological Approaches
brain defects

It has been found that psychopaths show reduced activity in the brain areas when introduced to pain of others.

treatment plan

There is really no treatment plan for psychopathology. It completely depends on the person. The only type of help that they can be given is psychotherapy.
