A state that might be mistaken for psychopathy sets in. The word ‘functional’ might be inserted before ‘psychopathy’ since the disappearance of interpersonal sensibility is thought to be defensive, temporary and reversible. So far we have talked about the predisposition to violent crime. This must be distinguished from the act of violence itself. While the predisposition involves the destruction of interpersonal awareness in a specific context, I would suggest that the act of violence itself represents the perverted restoration of a rudimentary mentalizing function.

The prisoners tend to report that they were forced to submit to an authority figure (usually a parent, and most commonly a step-parent) who threatened and then administered excessive force, battering the young person until the latter begged for mercy. In our samples, beating to the point of loss of consciousness was common, and more extreme ‘punishments’ included crucifixions, bodily mutilations, and systematic burning. There was, however, no relationship between the severity of the reported abuse and the seriousness of the violence later committed by the prisoner.

Action undertaken by the child, then, in a very real sense, will not be felt as having been forged within the self. The individual, having physical awareness of his bodily self, will ‘know’ that aggressive or violent action was committed by him. Yet the subjective experience of these acts will not be the same as it is for acts committed by individuals whose agentive self is intact. In individuals who commit aggressive or violent acts, the possibility of disconnecting internal state and action will lead to actions that are not curtailed by mentalization of their implications.
