8 Reasons Why Ted Bundy Became A Serial Killer


With the release of the Joker movie, we at Psych2Go thought this would be a good time to also release a video about Ted Bundy and how he became a serial killer. Psychopathy official name is antisocial personality disorder, which is part of the DSM. Antisocial personality disorder (ASPD or APD) is a personality disorder characterized by a long term pattern of disregard for, or violation of, the rights of others. A low moral sense or conscience is often apparent, as well as a history of crime, legal problems, or impulsive and aggressive behavior. Common understanding is that psychopathy is born whereas sociopathy is made. In the case of Ted Bundy, and the character Joker, do you feel they are made or born? What’s your reasoning?

  1. Who could have thought that not being loved by anyone in your life and constantly being put down would make You a sociopath, a criminal or an addict

  2. I’d feel like Ted was born in a Rich, and Wealthy Christian Family, he did commit such heinous acts but he got into Law Schools and being too smart to get out of jail.

  3. Do you mean Psychopathy as in the Psychopath Checklist or do you mean ASPD which is actually a bit different (because you said antisocial behavior in the video)?

  4. When my boyfriend was younger he told me one of his neighbors sold Ted the bug car that he killed his victims in.

  5. so i can become a serial killer cuz of my family :>

    but i can relate to what he went trough even if not fully
    it hurts when the people you must trust betray you and leave you hanging

  6. Ok, well, does it make it ok to kill innocent people for fun because you fell out of a tree in your childhood? Yeah, I didn't think so.

  7. I think this is the best explanation thus far as to why Ted Bundy killed.

    I certainly didn’t buy Bundy’s cop out excuse that it was “pornography” and “possession” that made him want to kill.

    To be honest I don’t think he knew nor particularly cared for the reason as to why he killed and raped.

    From what I’ve learned from interviews with psychopaths, they aren’t really concerned with the existential nor care about the deeper meaning behind humans.

    They can understand it but won’t outright be thinking of it regularly.

    I guess it’s tied to their lack of empathy.

  8. Dear Psych2Go, you guys are wrong about Ted Bundy's girlfriend. I just watched a documentary she agreed to make with Amazon for Prime, and she talks about how she stayed his girlfriend, even after he was arrested and convicted of kidnapping the first time. She didn't break it off with him, and that's why he went into a rage killing woman. She was actually in a relationship with him when he started the murders. She had no idea until maybe like after the 5th girl disappeared. Even after having her suspicions she still stayed his girlfriend…SMH.

  9. Ted Bundt was a smart, smart man. He was scary smart, he went for so long without being caught because he was such a scarily smart man, he had childhood trauma that turned him into what he was, he killed because he felt no control, he had no control of his life, and he was charming and manipulative. He was a smart man.
