Cleckley questions whether this mask of sanity is voluntarily assumed to intentionally hide the lack of internal structure, but concludes it hides a serious, but yet imprecisely unidentified, semantic neuropsychiatric : Hervey Cleckley.   The Mask of Sanity is distinguished by its central thesis that the psychopath exhibits normal function according to standard psychiatric criteria, yet privately engages in destructive behavior. The book was intended to assist with detection and diagnosis of the elusive psychopath for purposes of palliation and offered no cure for the condition 5/5.

An interesting take on murder, seen from the killer's perspective. Mask of Sanity explores the psychological progression during the planning stages and execution of the murders, as the killer expresses his doubts and fears, laughs internally at the police investigation, and selfishly manipulates his family and acquaintances.4/5(21). The Trope Namer comes from a book called The Mask of Sanity, which describes how people that aren't stable can blend in with society. Yandere and Cute and Psycho are Sub Tropes, when people may act perfectly normal until that certain trigger is pressed, then they quickly turn into murderous psychopaths.
