If they could, they wouldn't be psychopaths. They are good at imitating these behaviours but can't internalise any of them.

She found that psychopaths were easily bored and needed a career "where there is a lot of action. They would never do a mundane job. They are cold and quite callous and they are risk-takers. They have to be in a situation where things are changing the whole time and they don't have to make long-term plans

I am not sure why this would be incompatible with integrity.... There is no evident correlation...

Integrity is doing the right thing even when nobody is watching..
The problem is that people have different understanding of "the right thing"... Most people who - in our understanding- do evil, think they are doing the world a service.. In their view what they are doing IS the right thing... The Stalins, Maos, Hitlers, Khmer Rouges, ISIS etc... of this world all thought they were doing the right thing... They were NOT thinking "lets see what evil I can do today"...

Although fantasy, this is reflected in Avenger's Infinity Wars... Thanos -who destroys half of all living beings in the universe (no less)- believes he is doing the right thing
