    So, um, I came across this article... and it is a great example of how incomplete studies can be published. I, personally, do not agree with it as it generalizes the most absurd and common speech pauses as being specific leads to exposing psychopathy. From my own experience and by what I have learned from those around me, these pauses in speech/thought process during a conversation or when used in writing can reveal many things other than murderous tendencies. NOT all psychopaths are of a violent nature, anyways, and it is blasphemous for such an article, for such a report to be publicized as 'having the answers'. It is nothing more than an obvious premature conclusion. It may have potential, but it's leaning toward the wrong direction. It's likely going to end up allowing the masses to determine 'all' of 'us' as psychopaths in the end. Yet, that is an interesting thought, considering... :eusa_whistle:

    "Psychopaths also used more "ums" and "uhs", which researchers say indicate attempts to imply that retelling their crimes is difficult. "

    Numbers are merely symbolic of greater depths. Any time I see numbers I know it's flawed, however necessary, still flawed.
