Predicting one’s life is very important. It plays a very important role in helping to
implement measures which will help in making that person’s life better and
avoid being a bad person. Historically records of someone’s characters are
always repeated. In this case, the PCL –R helps in analyzing one’s possible course
of action which can be relied upon and make sure they make decisions on the
results obtained after it has been analyzed. In addition to that, one can make
follow up and determine when the character begun changing and what could have
lead to the change.
a nutshell, these analyses are very crucial and they play important role which
needs to be considered when one wants to understand ones change in character.
