Maniacs are obtained from the psychological category of people who have prevails internal need for power.
This was told by criminal psychologist Sergei Bogolepov.
According to him, peculiarity turning people into maniacs lies in the internal psychological needs that determine human behavior.
“The brain of a maniac has a normal structure, and all sorts of studies using X-rays and MRI will not help identify the villain,” the expert said. He pointed out that there is a certain category of people who want to control others and at the same time do not have empathy, without hesitation, cause suffering to other people.
“They get high when others bend in front of them. Having received a level of power suitable for them, they cling to the place with all their might. It is from this psychological category that the maniacs that interest us are obtained. Not having received for some reason the appropriate level of power and not being able to legally control others, the maniac does it in a criminal way. He kidnaps people to torture them, that’s when he experiences the apotheosis of mental satisfaction,” says Bogolepov, naming the main signs of criminal behavior.
