Antisocial and Violent Behaviour
People who suffer from antisocial
and violent behaviour disorder have a predatory
attitude toward other people. It is marked by a history of antisocial
activity beginning before age 15 and continuing to adulthood,
a failure to show responsibility, irritability, aggressiveness,
reckless and impulsive behaviour and a disregard for the truth.
These individuals lack empathy and fail to learn from experience.
Many antisocial adults were delinquents during their adolescent
years. Factors that lead to delinquency include poor impulse control,
low intelligence, other criminals in the family, poverty and bad
parenting. These antisocial adults may act out their aggression
in these criminal types: serial killers, rapists, batterers, and
child abusers. See section about Criminal
Psychology for more information.
