Do you know about the term “Psycho”? What does it mean? Psycho is a slang term used for a person who is mentally derailed or bit unstable or afflicted by some kind of psychosis or having excess obsession for something. Psycho is derived from the Greek word psykho, which means mental.’


There was a film made in 1960, named “Psycho”, directed by Hitchcock, and written by Joseph Stefano. It is a psychological horror and thriller movie, starring Anthony Perkins, Janet Leigh, John Gavin, Vera Miles, and Martin Balsam, and being inspired from 1959 novel of Robert Bloch.

The story of the film is like this, the secretary Marion runs away stealing money from her employer and ended up being at a private motel and found Norman Bates Perkins as the owner & manager of the motel and events followed then on.

Psychopath is the most difficult emotional disorder. The psychopath appears to be normal and charming in day-to-day life. But inherently, he lacks constructive attitude and stability, making him manipulative, volatile often criminal mindset. They are objects of popular fascination and clinical anguish. The adult psychopaths are unresponsive to treatment, though the programs are in place to treat symptoms like callousness, emotional dysfunction related issues. The result is dismal.
