Question: What emotions can a psychopath feel?

While psychopaths show a specific lack in emotions, such as anxiety, fear and sadness, they can feel other emotions, such as happiness, joy, surprise and disgust, in a similar way as most of us would.

Can psychopaths Recognise emotions?

In the current study, psychopathy was associated with overall difficulty identifying facial expressions of emotion, as well as with a specific deficit in identifying happy and sad facial expressions. In addition, psychopathy was associated with difficulty identifying less intense facial displays of emotion.

Are all psychopaths intelligent?

When lay people think about a psychopath, they may, quite reasonably, think of someone whos potentially very dangerous, or even evil. Yet they may also picture someone whos highly intelligent. However, research shows that psychopaths are no more likely to be highly intelligent than the average person.
