Psychopaths can regret, scientists from Yale University. Moreover, people with this type of disorder can learn from their mistakes. About the study with the participation of 62 men, reports Medical Express.
Some of the volunteers had traits characteristic of psychopaths. Even if clear of psychopathy, the researchers note, people are able to experience the feeling of regret, especially if it relates to others. However, awakened the conscience or other emotional experience of psychopaths is not used when making further decisions.
Psychopaths don't learn from their mistakes. That's why people with this disorder are so often in places of deprivation of liberty. Obtained in the study, the results should help in developing strategies for the treatment of psychopathy, especially among criminals.
