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.

comment Why is a lack of response to punishment in adults considered significant in diagnoses?
@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?

comment Why is a lack of response to punishment in adults considered significant in diagnoses?
"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?

comment Are there sex differences in inter-rater consistency of attractiveness ratings of opposite-sex faces?
This was a very informative answer and pretty much answered what I was looking for. I'm going to look into the references you give.

comment Is it a good idea to play an instrument while studying? If so, what are the benefits?
"We've all heard that listening to classical music and such while studying can be beneficial" - We have? :)
