... сгодня вывозил несжигаемый мусор на помойку. На обратном пути увязалась собака.
Бегала кругами и всячески подлизывалась. Когда я подошел к дому - прорвалась на учаток и начала гонять кота.

Я спокойно открыл дверь (собчак вился около), достал топор и без малейшей злобы попытался уебать собачку лезвием по хребту.
Увы - чуть промахнулся. Эта дура, кажется, даже не осознала, что я ее только что пытался убить или серьезно ранить.

... мне еще в школе говорили, что у меня "ни стыда, ни совести" - за прошедшие с тех пор 30 лет я привык->

Individuals with early warning signs of life-long psychopathy, callous-unemotional traits (CU) and high levels of antisocial behaviour (AB) can be identified in childhood. We report here the first twin study of high levels of psychopathic tendencies in young children. AB in children with high levels of CU is under extremely strong genetic influence and no influence of shared environment, whereas AB in children with low levels of CU shows moderate genetic and shared environmental influence.

Although animal cruelty is currently used as a diagnostic criterion for conduct disorder, research establishing the diagnostic significance of this behavior is essentially nonexistent. In the current study, investigators tested the hypothesis that a history of substantial animal cruelty is associated with a diagnosis of antisocial personality disorder (APD) and looked for associations with other disorders commonly diagnosed in a population of criminal defendants. Forty-eight subjects, criminal defendants who had histories of substantial animal cruelty, were matched with defendants without this history. Data were systematically obtained from the files by using four specifically designed data retrieval outlines. A history of animal cruelty during childhood was significantly associated with APD, antisocial personality traits, and polysubstance abuse. Mental retardation, psychotic disorders, and alcohol abuse showed no such association. [Animal Cruelty and Psychiatric Disorders, J Am Acad Psychiatry Law 30:257–65, 2002]

The high incidence of sociopathy in human society has a profound effect on the rest of us who must live on this planet, too, even those of us who have not been clinically traumatized. The individuals who constitute this 4 percent drain our relationships, our bank accounts, our accomplishments, our self-esteem, our very peace on earth.

Yet surprisingly, many people know nothing about this disorder, or if they do, they think only in terms of violent psychopathy... We are not commonly aware of, nor do we usually identify, the larger number of nonviolent sociopaths among us, people who often are not blatant lawbreakers, and against whom our formal legal system provides little defense.
