An interesting article.
Almost everything in this blog has been written with a slant assuming that the psychopath ornarcissist in your life is male. However, I do get quite a few hits on this blog about female psychopaths/ASPD, and so I thought I’d speak to that topic today.
Statistics vary depending upon your source, but it’s safe to say that around 4% of the adult population has Anti Social Personality Disorder(ASPD). That percentage can be broken down into 3% male and 1% female.
So, the reason most article and blogs are about psychopathic men and not women, is due to these statistics.
Remember, that not all people with ASPD are psychopaths. Although the term Anti Social Personality Disorder has replaced the term Pschopathy in the DSM-IV (Diagnostic Manual, psychopathy is generally considered a subset of ASPD. So, of the 4% of the population with ASPD, a fraction of those actually are true psychopaths.
