I asm just speculating, as I have all my answers, but I do believe it is hereditary, and college psychology books have noted that there is a 50 - 50 chance, if one parent is antisocial/sociopathic. I do believe that it is a chemical imbalance, and that the imbalance starts to manifest, or get worse, during adolescence or puberty.
