Many of the information about left brain versus right brain in the public domain does a poor job of painting the overall picture of the roles of the left and right brain. Understanding how these two hemispheres of the human brain work is essential for peace and prosperity. Once you learn the differences and similarities between these two hemispheres, you should know that when these two parts of the brain are heavily imbalanced, they could cause dangerous side effects, such as psychopathic or sociopathic behaviors.

This article isn’t going to cover everything about the right and left brain. Instead, it will focus more on certain characteristics of this complex human organ to help you understand why we behave the way we do and why some people have strong psychopathic or sociopathic personalities.

Psychopath versus sociopath

When it comes to defining the differences between a psychopath and a sociopath, there are a lot of disagreements among psychologists. However, many psychologists generally agree that psychopaths and sociopaths lack empathy and emotions, and they like to manipulate and control others. It is estimated that about 3 to 5 percent of human beings are either psychopaths or sociopaths, and roughly 1 percent are chronic psychopaths or chronic sociopaths.

The main differences between psychopaths and sociopaths are that psychopaths have a high sense of arrogance and they understand the concept of right and wrong just as well as most of us. Psychopaths are often more controlling than sociopaths and many of them are very intellectual. However, Psychopaths aren’t as intelligent as people who have a balanced right and left brain. This is due to the fact that psychopaths are left brain dominant, which is the part of the brain that deals with logic and analytical thought.
