Pupil Dilation And Psychopathic Traits:-
It was believed that people who have psychopathic traits are less likely to show pupil dilation. To test this, a study was conducted. A group of people in which both normal and psychopathic people were included was involved in this study.
Images and videos that provoke negative, positive, or violation emotions were shown to these people. On negative and violating images, people with psychopathic traits showed less pupil dilation than normal people.
To positive images, there was no difference in the pupil dilation of both types of people. So it was deduced that there no direct relation between psychopathic traits and pupil dilation.
Eye Contact And Psychopathic Traits:-
The other assumption was that people who have psychopathic traits are less likely to make eye contact with others or make eye contact for a long time. There are three studies related to this assumption:
- In this study, 30 men were taken who were involved in violence in the past. To these men, pictures of different faces were shown. After the study, it was deduced that these men were slower when looking towards the eyes in the picture. It was also deduced that they did not look towards the for a longer time.
- In another study, it was noticed that there is a connection between psychopathic traits and the eye gaze. It was also noticed that people with psychopathic traits pay less attention to faces that show fear.
- In this study, 30 incarcerated were taken. In this face to face eye contact was involved. At the end of the study, it was concluded that people having psychopathic traits made less eye contact than normal people.
So it can be concluded that people who have psychopathic traits make less eye contact than normal people.
Can Psychopathic Traits Be Determined Through Any Characteristics:-
There is nothing to prove that any characteristic of a person can show his psychopathic traits. Psychopathic people show less pupil dilation, but normal people can show less pupil dilation. Normal people show less pupil dilation when they do not know the exact place to look. So there is no solid evidence.
The other possibility is that people with psychopathic traits do not make eye contact or make less eye contact. But most normal people are hesitant to make direct eye contact. The reason behind this is shyness or nervousness.
So there is impossible to determine psychopathic traits based on characteristics.
In A Nutshell:-
So it can be concluded that there is no way to determine someone’s psychopathic traits through his/her characteristics. It is better not to believe in these superstitions and avoid suspecting anyone based on these superstitions. Only professionals and expertise should be allowed to diagnose any psychotic disorder.
