Question: How does the psychopathy checklist work?

In the test, a clinician interviews a potential sociopath and scores them on 20 criteria, such as promiscuous sexual Behavior or impulsivity. On each criterion, the subject is ranked on a 3-point scale: (0 = item does not apply, 1 = item applies somewhat, 2 = item definitely applies).

How is psychopathy assessed?

Psychopathy has most typically been assessed in noncriminal adult samples using self-report-based measures. Older measures of this type emphasized the antisocial deviancy component of psychopathy with limited coverage of interpersonal-affective features (Hare, 2003).
