Thread Name: BS: 4% of all males are psychopaths
Subject: RE: BS: 4% of all males are psychopaths
I know, but a 16 point checklist does not make a DSM-IV disgnosis. I'm interested in peoples' conceptions about mental health, and sometimes labels can be used that can be circular in their reasoning ("he's a psychopath because he behaves like this; he behaves like this because he is a psychopath").

On a tenuously related note, I see that twat Tom Cruise has claimed psychiatry is a "pseudo-science" and criticises Brooke Shields for taking anti-depressants for post-natal depression. Bit hypocritical coming from a scientologist...
