Ah, you guys are right, I was thinking of psychotic not psychopathic. I normally think of the term sociopath for psychopath. I wouldn't be so sure it is autism exactly. I think that sociopaths have an abnormally strong ability to accurately model the internal reactions of others, they just use it to exploit and torture them intentionally. It's more like they make other people autistic to their motives. I would guess that their schadenfreude conversion factor is such that they enjoy causing pain as their primary from of pleasure.
