Digital Spy Forumer Talks Out of His Arse

For the benefit of Mr ShallowMind, himself, otherwise known as klendathu, sorry, mate, but you are dead wrong about Ronnie being a "temporary" psychopath, based on your psychotic state of four years ago.

Anyone can have a psychotic episode, which is basically a detachment from reality, and psychotic episodes can be caused by physical illness, sleep deprivation, anxiety, stress etc. Psychotic episodes, are, indeed, temporary and medically treatable.

Psychopathy, on the other hand, is a permanent and incurable condition. Most people are born psychopaths, and many inherit the condition from a parent - e.g., Michael Moon's mother was a psychopath, and so was Archie Mitchell.

Psychopaths lack the ability to empathise, they are controlling and manipulative. Even though they don't give a rat's arse about others, they can be charming to the extreme. They are arrogant, entitled and have a superior opinion of themselves. They can be prone to outbursts of violence, they obsess over inappropriate people and they use sex wantonly to get what they want. Sounds pretty much like Ronnie to me.

If you don't believe me, then try this article for size from the professional journaForl Psychology Today. It's written simple enough for even klendathu to understand it.

It even provides a textbook definition of psychotic  and psychopath.

Psychosis is an umbrella term to describe the mental state of losing touch with reality. A number of things can cause psychosis, fromschizophrenia to depression to sleep deprivation.
Psychopathy, is a personality disorder which consists of a lack ofempathy, impulsivity, recklessness, scrupulousness, callousness, and lying..
That doesn't mean, however, that psychopaths can't have psychotic episodes, and possibly this happened to Ronnie when she snatched Tommy; but after that, her psychopathy kicked in and, as she said in her police interview, she really didn't give a shit about the Moons and how they felt.

Rarely enough,  DS Forumer priscilla is right: Ronnie is a psychopath.
