But that supposition fits nicely with the numbers given, that female psychopath mortality risk is tenfold over typical females, whereas male psychopath mortality risk is fivefold over typical males. It’s not that female psychopaths behave in riskier ways than than male psychopaths do; it’s that normal males behave in riskier ways than normal females do. The normal male risk is closer to the psychopathic male risk than the normal female risk is to the psychopathic female risk.

I would guess that make psychopaths engage in more risky acts than female psychopaths do, yet females have higher relative mortality risk per risky act, if such a thing can be measured.
