Personality of Aileen Wuornos - Psychopath Aileen Wuornos, a psychopath, a serial killer, and extremely rare at that. Psychopaths are not normally serial killers, but in this case she was. She displays qualities of a psychopath over a sociopath. She was more concerned with how it would benefit her in any action she accomplished. Her actions showed no emotion or connection within the crimes she committed. Psychopaths are often voluble and verbally facile. They can be amusing and entertaining conversationalists, ready with a clever comeback, and are able to tell unlikely but convincing stories that cast themselves in a good light. They can be very effective in presenting themselves well and are often very likable and charming ("This Charming Psychopath" 2016) . She displays reactive behaviours to situations and impulsively acts in a manner which she considers to be most appropriate, in one instance robbing a convenience store to get the attention of an ex-partner after he left her. Abandoned by her parents before reaching her first birthday

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
