comment For depression diagnoses, does one make a clear distinction between endogenous and exogenous causes of depression?
Well, the distinction I'm really after is one situation where you either can treat the person with medicines and one situation where you only need to change the external circumstances for the person.

comment Do victims of parental abuse and neglect become abusive or neglectful parents?
And further, I would say that there isn't any solid research proving that parenting style causes any long lasting behavior in children. Most studies doesn't include genetic factors. See for example faculty.weber.edu/eamsel/Classes/Child%203000/Lectures/…

comment Is there a random walk theory that can account for situations with more than two choices?
Yes, I'm counting time as one dimension (ranging from 0 to infinity on the x axis) and the current evidence as one dimension (ranging from minus infinity to plus infinity on the y axis).

comment Why is a lack of response to punishment in adults considered significant in diagnoses?
Yes, I see your point, and yes, it seems to be a part of diagnoses of psychopats. Mybe it would be easier if you included these parts you are reffering to in your question, but it is a valid question you're asking.

@SonnyOrdell: Well, I'm still not convinced. In this case, the author only talks about the negative side of psychopaths not fearing punishment, which makes them harder to control with punishment. I still don't see any diagnostic criterias. Could you for example relate what you're saying to any part of the entry on psychopathy on the Wikipedia page? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychopathy

Well, for example, you reference the Hare Psychopathy Checklist. Could you give a reference to the relevant item/s in this checklist that mentions lack of response to punishment? Also, you seem to be suggesting that this is a common stand point but you don't give any references to this either. That is, is it really a common stand point and is it really included in the Hare Psychopathy Checklist?

"It seems odd to me since in many cases a person we consider capable of making their own decision may not agree with a punishment, in which case why would the punishment be expected to have any effect?" - Even if you don't agree with the reason the punishment is given, you might still change your behavior accordingly. That is, if I'm punished for playing the piano, even if I don't agree with the reasons for this, I'll probably stop playing it to avoid future punishment. Could you include some solid (i.e. Links? Journals?) references so we can analyse the statements you give further?
