Study i in this thesis showed that genetic factors contributed substantially to the stability of the higher-order psychopathic personality factor, whereas environmental factors were of little importance we also found specific genetic stability in the callous/unemotional (affective) and impulsive/irresponsible ( behavioral). This has lead some investigators to speculate that women require a greater “ loading” of risk factors to exhibit psychopathic features or that environmental factors play a greater role in female relative to male psychopathy and antisocial behavior (jordan et al, 1996 mcclellan et al, 1997 teplin et al, 2002.

Most of the research can show that there is no one cause for violent behavior although this psychopathic behavior has traditionally been blamed on environmental or experiential factors, but more evidence is starting to indicate that there are fundamental differences in the psychopathic brain could this.
