Morals are built in. unless you are psychopathic or autistic, they are there in full force and can only become dulled, but never go away.
Hey! I didn't read the rest of that (or the replies that follow up until this one). Please do not imply that psychopaths and autistic people are alike in any way.
My son is autistic. Autism != psychopathic
no, they're not alike. To put it simply: Psychopaths only care about themselves, and interact in a mechanical, learned way- based on trial and error- in order to get what they want out of a social interaction. Autistic people seem to only interact if they absolutely have to, not because they want something. Autism *seems* to be a different logical composition of the brain: I've heard it said that people who have autism, no matter what form, have some 'incredible' skill- useful or not. examples include things like being able to tell what day any date in history was. Psychopaths don't have this. The only other mental 'condition' (thought mode?) that is similar to this is dyslexia.
The one thing they *might* have in common is that they interact with people differently than 'normal' (un-diagnosed?) people.
