They have difficulty differentiating all kinds of things. For instance they also have difficulty telling the difference between human beings and furniture/food/garbage.

dready zim: The study makes clear that a poor sense of smell does not by itself mean that someone is a psychopath. Olfactory dysfunction can also occur in schizophrenia, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease, it notes.

Whatever, your`re still crazy if you can`t smell stuff.

"The OFC is a front part of the brain responsible for controlling impulses, planning and behaving in line with social norms."

Y' know what a lot of people with poor impulse control and poor planning and behavioral skills do?
They smoke.
And I saw no indication that the study contolled for that.
