Admittedly, we do use the word and words of similar meaning metaphorically ourselves (as in "laughter is contagious", or "Stay away! I'll catch your stupidity!"), but I find it interesting that criminality is now regarded as being 'contagious', apparently in the literal/medical sense.
Most likely since the tendency of the person with high CC is aggresive/violent so when we get near them we naturally also stressed out as well which contribute to high CC.

thats why High CC is regarded as contagious... any other theory?
