The term antisocial describes actions that violate laws, social norms, and established standards of appropriate behavior, including destructive, violent, and aggressive behavior toward others. Personality characteristics of individuals who engage in antisocial behavior include impulsivity, a lack of empathy, and a lack of morality. The development of antisocial behaviors has been shown to be due to a complex interaction of genetic heritability, environmental, and contextual factors.
