PSYCHOPATHS GET BORED EASILY
A psychopath is not just under-stimulated because of an uneventful day at work or a weekend night stuck at home, but he or she faces chronic boredom across all facets of their lives. One common hypothesis is that psychopaths are hardwired to be more under-aroused than other people.
‘A psychopath’s nervous system is wired so they need to keep doing exciting things to feel normal and reach normal levels of arousal,’ says Schug. According to psychologist Randall Salekin, PhD, this means that they’re also the ones in a group most likely to initiate fun-oriented activities, such as suggest post-work drinks.
