PSYCHOPATHS

Psychopaths are trickier than you might think. Men who scored high on a psychopathic personality questionnaire had an unusual ability to detect sad females and exploit their vulnerability.

Psychopaths appear very normal – on the outside. But their brains have a dysfunctional amygdala – the seat of human compassion. They’re cunning predators and master manipulators. A sad woman is very vulnerable to a clever wolf in sheep’s clothing.
