    Psychopaths are born that way. That doesn't mean they can't be objects of compassion.

    Just don't hang out with them.

    Re: Is hate a Choice?

    Like all products of ignorance, hate can be a choice or not depending upon the circumstances. Hate isn't useful. It's easy to see that people who harm others need to be incapacitated without hating them. Hating them simply risks irrational behavior on your own part or not acting pragmatically.

    Please come back and tell us what you are
    INFJ, though the only strong one was N. I was almost neutral on F/T.

    Einstein was E? That makes no sense, lol. I prefer small-group or one-on-one interaction. Their basis for being E seemed to have to do with liking to party, lol.

    I got ISTJ, with the S being a 1, and the J being a 78. I and T were in the 50's.

    I'm not sure they are born that way. I don't think it's conclusive that they are. People may be born in many different ways... and some are able to extract themselves from extraordinary circumstances / fates - and even from being born "bad seeds" - if that is even at all true.

    When it comes to this area, I think there is still so much speculation as to whether people are born a certain way. It is too limiting, I think, to say that psychopaths are born that way.

    Would be possibly better to suggest that some are possibly born that way, and that some others are not...

    Nothing is definitive, not when it comes to the psyche, at least...

    Dr Robert Hare, considered an expert, has studied psychopaths for 35 years and says their brains are wired differently and there is alot of evidence that they are born and not made.

    I could put in some links if you'd like.
