Ohhh ,my wife will like that topic!

Her feature film "Anatomy of a Psychath" based on true events from 
April/May 2003 and her Documentary "Don't Tell Bill" goes into the analysis 
and defining of Psychopaths.

I did post a link here some months ago for people to do a Psychopath Survey 
by the only person studying psychopathy in Australia.

It would be fun if everyone on Link took the test!  And those can arrange 
an hour or two in Sydney to do the actually Skin Resistance testing :)

A lot of fun!

Let me know if you do, maybe wed can come and film it for the Documentary :)
