Do Psychopaths have insecurities?
True psychopathy is extremely rare. It is between It is between .75%–1% percent of the population with a 20:1 ratio men to women. It cannot be induced as that is not what defined psychopathy is. It is how the brain formed in utero.
Psychopathy is born. It is present, as I say in my bioline, from the first breath one takes, to the last.
Psychopaths have marked brain differences from a neurotypical brain. Our amygdala alone is around eighteen percent smaller, as well the same showing/damage to the orbital cortex, the frontal lobe, and also the insula which is located deep in the cerebral cortex.
Psychopathy being characterized by low fear is consistent with abnormalities in the amygdala, since detriments in aversive conditioning and instrumental learning are thought to result from amygdala dysfunction, potentially compounded by orbital frontal cortex dysfunction, although the specific reasons are unknown.
The orbital cortex regulates impulsivity, and the frontal lobe is the damage to the ethics and morality section of the brain. All of these areas will show a pattern that is present and distinctive for a psychopathic brain.
It is also why we do not process our chemical or electrical impulses as a neurotypical does.
Psychopaths have vastly diminished fear cues, meaning that we do not feel fear. We don't have the brain wiring for emotions such as compassion, anxiety, empathy, guilt, or other empathetic emotions.
Because of the changes that happened in our brains we do not have pro-social emotions. Nor do we feel insecurities as neurotypicals do. It could be argued that sociopaths might, depending on their trigger points. Within the trigger points there may be insecurities.
A sociopath is a person that went through some sort of trauma, abuse, or neglect in their lives, usually childhood. They have formed the condition of sociopathy as a coping mechanism to deal with said abuse. This means that they were born, at least in current theory, neurotypical and from that point the trauma they endured formed the sociopathic condition. What that often means is that they have a difficulty regulating emotions as they were not well or properly formed in the first place.
Their emotional tuning board is out of balance. They have muted responses to some things, and exaggerated responses to others. Often the exaggerated responses are due to triggering stimuli that bring about a reliving of that trauma in one form or another. They may respond badly to raised voices, sexual situations, violence, or a number of other things.
Within this condition insecurities can be present. Within psychopathy, it is impossible. Anyone saying differently does not understand, or have been poorly informed as to what the true definition of psychopathy and how it manifests.
