CNN's "Larry King Live," Wednesday, May 4, 2005
Dr. Katherine Ramsland, associate professor of forensic psychology and expert on serial killers, was among the guest panelists, who discussed psychopaths and sociopaths. The experts included Dr. Martha Stout, psychologist and clinical instructor at Harvard Medical School; Dr. Helen Morrison, M.D., certified forensic psychiatrist, and Greg McCrary, experienced profiler and 25-year veteran of the FBI. McCrary and Ramsland co-authored, "The Unknown Darkness: Profiling the Predators Among Us." According to Ramsland, a psychopath is a person who essentially is without remorse and is diagnosable according to a list of 20 traits, which are affective, as well as socially deviant, usually manipulative, deceptive, low frustration tolerance, among others. Psychopaths know, but don't care, about the difference between right and wrong, said Ramsland.
