Answer:
Psychopathy not to be confused with psychosis, is a term derived from the Greek psyche (mind) and pathos (suffering), and was once used to denote any form of mental illness. Currently, psychopathy is defined in psychiatry as a condition characterized by lack of empathy or conscience, and poor impulse control or manipulative behaviors.

I believe it stems from a child being deprived of healthy and dynamic social skills, including ethical and moral behavioral from a parent or caretaker over several years, compounded by physical and emotional abuse that causes trauma.
