"The Mentality of D.C. Politicians" or "The Profile of Sociopaths"

Profile of the Sociopath
This website summarizes some of the common features of descriptions of the behavior of sociopaths.
http://www.mcafee.cc/Bin/sb.html

Glibness and Superficial Charm

Manipulative and Conning
They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.

Grandiose Sense of Self
Feels entitled to certain things as "their right."

Pathological Lying
Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.

Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.

Shallow Emotions
When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.

Incapacity for Love

Need for Stimulation
Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common.

Callousness/Lack of Empathy
Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others' feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.

Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim. Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others.

Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency
Usually has a history of behavioral and academic difficulties, yet "gets by" by conning others. Problems in making and keeping friends; aberrant behaviors such as cruelty to people or animals, stealing, etc.

Irresponsibility/Unreliability
Not concerned about wrecking others' lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.

Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity
Promiscuity, child sexual abuse, rape and sexual acting out of all sorts.

Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future, poor work ethic but exploits others effectively.

Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution. Changes life story readily.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Other Related Qualities:

Contemptuous of those who seek to understand them
Does not perceive that anything is wrong with them
Authoritarian
Secretive
Paranoid
Only rarely in difficulty with the law, but seeks out situations where their tyrannical behavior will be tolerated, condoned, or admired
Conventional appearance
Goal of enslavement of their victim(s)
Exercises despotic control over every aspect of the victim's life
Has an emotional need to justify their crimes and therefore needs their victim's affirmation (respect, gratitude and love)
Ultimate goal is the creation of a willing victim
Incapable of real human attachment to another
Unable to feel remorse or guilt
Extreme narcissism and grandiose
May state readily that their goal is to rule the world

(The above traits are based on the psychopathy checklists of H. Cleckley and R. Hare.)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NOTE: In the 1830's this disorder was called "moral insanity." By 1900 it was changed to "psychopathic personality." More recently it has been termed "antisocial personality disorder" in the DSM-III and DSM-IV. Some critics have complained that, in the attempt to rely only on 'objective' criteria, the DSM has broadened the concept to include too many individuals. The APD category includes people who commit illegal, immoral or self-serving acts for a variety of reasons and are not necessarily psychopaths.

Regarding the post "FIRM with Tom Cruise"

Thats a good example of the group mentality going on in corporate and govern America.

You have to see American Psycho to understaind the individual mentality that drives the group !

Here is my favorite example: How important is the business card ?

Michael Nystrom's picture

The Corporation

Also sounds like the profile of a modern day sociopathic corporation.

All art is only done by the individual. The individual is all you ever have, and all schools only serve to classify their members as failures. E.H.

First I've heard fo this film

You're right. For some reason Nystrom's link went straight to

Thanks Granger.

I would add

At first glance, sociopaths are not always easy to recognize being such gifted liars and actors. Once you have had a run in with one on a personal level, however, it becomes much easier. Many, many politicians fall into this category, some just much more than others.

Alpacas - IT'S DOABLE

Hey Daddy

Great info - I recognize so many!

I have a riddle for the ethicists and religious among you

What makes life sacred? Is it the soul (by whatever definition you define it)? Do cockroaches have souls? Apparently, psychopaths do not.

The fact that life is rare

is what makes it sacred. How much life fills the space between the deepest ocean on earth and the moon? Not much life, and when we expand that.. life as we know it.. is very rare.

Primary Psychopathy is genetic

And notice how they're turning us into a society of "secondary psychopaths"...

This is all important info to know. To understand how psychopaths/sociapaths think explains why they can do horrible things and still sleep at night - it's EASY when you have no remorse, guilt, sympathy, soul or concience. Just because you have a conscience, you can't assume everyone does (and never assume the elite do - but they can sure put on a good show pretending they do whenever it suits their agenda). The Illuminati are lacking that which makes you human - a soul - they are the spawn of Satan.

by that name?

Um

I don't understand what you're talking about. Please clarify.

Old episode.. and see who is your moniker.

Granger...

This is based on science...are you denying that psychopaths exist?

ArmorOfChrist777

I believe science is an art and art is a science.

Wow. What a resource list

It's sad to think we are at a time and place where we have to become educated in this area in order to recognize bad apples.

The bad apples seem to be the norm in D.C. rather than the exception.

Glad you liked it

And hope you find the time to check them all out. We all need to be able to recognize this type of behavior, even in the people around you. If you get involved with one of these types, or heaven forbid, one marries into your family like they did mine, they will cause serious havoc and destruction.

I'm like a shoe salesman...trying to find one that fits the #$!@

Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency

("aberrant behaviors such as cruelty to people or animals, stealing, etc")

These sociopaths did not learn morals, and carry on into adulthood.
Even as early as the sand box in elementary school, I avoided them, just like I avoided the sand box bully.
I am proud to be a part of the world wide cause to stop their insanity.

Thanks, DaddyWarBucks, your insights and findings I look forward too. Daily I think how "they" can accept the poisons themselves, and prey on others, and even gaze upon intensive mono crop farming and the horrendous feed lots, and feel nothing, let alone the murder of millions.
Daily, I ask myself, what could be there motivation?
And there is none, other than what you have presented here as the bases for their severe detachment.
Taking it even further, these broken brained sycophanst are "groomed" and endocrinated even further, to become the tool of evil without conscious.

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

They have no abaility to feel positive emotions

But get their jollies out of the negative ones - to them, it's fun to hurt others and watch them suffer.

And their disregard for the extinction of living things & plants
