I've been reading up on bullying in hopes of being able to recognise the signs so I can intercept as early as possible. My reading led me on to the theory of bullies (particularly adult ones) having a sociopathic bent, & from there I read a couple of books about the abnormal personality. According to studies, 4% of the population have no conscience and no empathy & scorns society's rules - the book claimed this was down to nature rather than nurture, that you are born that way. It got me thinking, some of the people I know therefore must have been sociopaths but I am racking my brains to think of anyone who displayed no conscience whatsoever. By those statistics, there must be at least one in each class! What does everyone else think? Scaremongering or sadly true?
