I was wondering if there may be anything of merit in this: A. Sundt Gullhaugen, J. Aage Nottestad. Looking for the Hannibal Behind the Cannibal: Current Status of Case Research. International Journal of Offender Therapy and Comparative Criminology, 2010; 55 (3): 350 DOI: 10.1177/0306624X10362659
I found it through this article http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/07/120713122925.htm it was an interesting read. I was wondering however if the sociopaths in question weren't simply manipulating the authors into believing they had these emotions, possibly self deluding themselves, or if we should take it as it appears. I'm hesitant to give it merit due to reference to Hannibal... makes it seem as though it's more a book targeted at general populace rather then for serious consumption. Would one happen to know about it by chance? OR give me more qualified opinion on this particular work.

Hi I haven't read it, and have no interest really. At this point I prefer to gather facts first-hand. An intelligent, determined psychopath can fool almost anyoneat least for a while.

Indeed thank you for your response dr. I'd be curious to see how they conducted their study but google searches aren't showing it to easily. I know it would be very easy to give yourself away in some of these things and the sociopath may just give you what your looking for if you give them the appropriate cue without realizing. Imagine curiosity couldn't be satisfied really unless I saw it in person myself though. While on the topic could you tell me some common things one would feel guilty about that the sociopath wouldn't?
