Could someone be a "little bit" of a psycopath?

from my understanding - no. the behaviour of a person can look a lot like "psychopath" but if I paid the right kind of attention in my seminars psychopath (I'm thinking reactive attachment disorder) involves actual brain chemistry inability to form emotional attachments and feel empathy blah blah blah. And most psychopaths don't become serial killers - they don't become criminals at all. I think they might become CEO's of large corporations. A little snark but not that far off the mark. An intelligent psychopath realizes that there isn't much percentage in being a serial killer but that life is good as the head of a thriving business. So unless Steve Jobs lacked the ability to form ANY emotional attachment or feel any empathy he doesn't qualify.
