Transcript of The Psychopath Test By: Jon Ronson

In the book Ronson displays ethos in which he introduces his own background as an interviewer and also displays his motive and dedication to discovering the mysteries within the story.

Due to the nonfiction mystery type theme, Ronson uses many statistics such as percentiles to justify his reasoning as well as prove the truth - fact behind all the stories of psychopaths and people alike.

Also used many times throughout the book, Ronson makes many references, such as comparing data, occurrences and other debatable subjects in which is used to further develop and understanding of the story in the book as well as develop a more logical explanation to both sides of an argument.

In the book, Ronson is trying to bring into the limelight the reality of modern day psychopaths as well as prove whether or not there is a differentiation between a real psychopath and the normal person.

What is a Psychopath?
The Psychopath Test
By: Jon Ronson
Ronson's targeted audience is centered primarily at the people who are in a questioning disbelief of whether or not such people - the psychopaths exist. Or the targeted audience is also the people who are aware of psychopaths and need further elaboration on who they really are. This can be inferred due to his direct interaction with psychopaths and his intent to solve the mystery of it all himself.
1.) The book seems to display a great understanding of the belief of psychopaths as a fact. In the modern world it proves to display itself as a helpful book of information in which a debatable topic deters more to a factual side rather than a fiction type argument

2.) Although it seems logical to believe that psychopaths are in fact, facts, it also seems to leave in the dark whether or not the percentage of the people in the world are psychopaths or are actually just people who have emotional "problems." Whether or not the percentiles are true or not, the question of whether or not the probability of psychopaths are not in a clear, but vague position.

3.) It would be most helpful to have more interviews with these so-called psychopaths to get a feel for what exactly makes them that way as well as see how there can be a possible solution. Also if possible the reality of finding out what exactly triggers such a mental occurrence would be helpful as well to discover.
