Perhaps say 'to what extended are murders influenced by purely psychological or biological influences' or something like that?

The question is done so much that you could probably find previous titles for it online

Do you believe it's purely biological or psychological? If so, why?

I doubt it's either completely biological or completely psychological. In most cases, I'm pretty certain it's a combination of both.

We're all murderers by nature but we choose to not kill as it brings no benefits to us or those around us (especially if you're being murdered woops soz lad quick revive needed). It's clearly the most immoral thing you can do in life and obviously frowned up by society. So to answer your question - its biological that is developed psychologically with experiences of hate envy or jealousy

ask Dr Adrian Raine. he is a biological psychologist who studied murderers' brains using MRI scans in 1997

well i'm doing this in psychology at the moment and there's a lot of influences - you could talk about the diathesis-stress model, which basically means you are genetically vulnerable to becoming a murderer (so you might have a 'criminal' gene or brain pattern) but this vulnerability requires an environmental 'stressor'/trauma to actually make you become a murderer. it's a pretty interesting topic!
