Thread Name: BS: 4% of all males are psychopaths
Subject: RE: BS: 4% of all males are psychopaths

most probably Donuel has misrepresented or misunderstood what he has read. What he actually writes re twins makes not much sense. What he probably meant to write was the following:

If one twin is a social psychopath the probability that the other is a social psychopath as well is higher than 4 %, even more so for identical twins. (That would make sense if genetic factors play a role beside other factors).
