You may not be surprised to hear that people who have a history of antisocial behaviour, or have a mental illness, are more likely to commit violent offences.
Psychologist David Buss said: “They can get out of control, so if you have that history, you can predict what kind of behaviour they will have and be better able to control them.”
Buss also said that antisocial people tend to have a personality disorder.
He said: They are usually antisocial because they are so self-absorbed and don’t like sharing what they think of themselves.
So the problem is that it’s hard to know what it’s going to look like for them.
“We need to know more about these people before we can say, ‘Oh, this is what’s going on.
This is the pathology of these people.
They’re a psychopath.'”
Buss explained that antisocials often seek to control others.
He added: They might be aggressive, they might have a disorder of impulse control, or they might even have an underlying personality disorder like antisocial personality disorder or borderline personality disorder, or other personality disorders like antisomnias.
The term “psychopath” has come to mean people with an extreme and often violent behaviour.
“If there is a personality change, like you are becoming more compassionate, you are going to be more likely, because that’s what people do, to become more violent. “
“So, if you think you’re going to go to extreme measures, you might be a psychopath.” “

How antisocial are people?
The researchers examined 5,000 people who were part of the UK’s National Survey of Behaviour, and found that there were many antisocial traits.
Of those who reported antisocial or borderline behaviour, 60 per cent had been diagnosed with a mental health condition.
Of these, 56 per cent reported an antisocial history.
One in five antisocial individuals had a history with substance abuse.
“The most common type of antisocial personality was a borderline personality,” said Buss.
“Borders are very common and you might even see them in other types of personality disorders.”
Bussed said that it is important to remember that antisociates are not always psychopaths.
He explained: It’s really important that people understand that this is a very, very rare condition, so it’s very hard to say that people with borderline personality disorders are going on a rampage.
Buss added that antisopically violent people might have antisocial features in addition to being antisocial.
He described it as a “borderline personality disorder”.
He said that this was not something that we usually recognise as antisocial behavior.
Bess said that most people are antisocial to some extent.
“But in a small minority of cases, they’re not,” he said.
“This is a disorder, it’s a disorder that’s more of a mental disorder.
What can we do to prevent being a victim of violence? “
It’s like the difference between someone who has bipolar disorder and someone who is not bipolar.”
What can we do to prevent being a victim of violence?
There are some things you can do to protect yourself and your loved ones from becoming victims of violent behaviour in your life.
If you know someone who you suspect may be a victim, talk to them.
If they are, they may not know that you are also a victim.
Talk to your partner, a friend or neighbour about their experiences.
“There are a number of things that you can put in place to try to stop being a violent victim,” said Dr. Baus.
Another thing is to get some counselling. “
And you need to understand that people can be really hurt and hurt a lot more than they realize.”
Another thing is to get some counselling.
If your partner is experiencing violent behaviour, you need counselling, and if you suspect someone is a violent offender, then there’s also counselling to help you understand why you might have these fears.
You need to talk with someone, to try and find out why they might be feeling this way.
Are there other types to be concerned about? “
These are things that can really hurt, and that’s one of the things that is important when it comes to mental health and what you can and can’t do about it.”
Are there other types to be concerned about?
Buss, who works at the Institute for Social Psychotherapy at the University of Essex, also said there are other types
