Psychopaths are distracted, not cold-blooded
AN ATTENTION deficit, rather than an inability to feel emotion, may be what makes psychopathic individuals seem fearless. It's a finding that challenges the common characterisation of such people as cold-blooded predators.

"A lot of their problems may be a consequence of something that's almost like a learning difficulty," says Joseph Newman, a psychologist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison who investigated how prisoners with psychopathic personalities react when anticipating pain.

Previous experiments have suggested such people may not feel fear, while brain imaging studies have found abnormalities in the amygdala, a region that processes fear and other emotions. This has encouraged the perception that they are "emotionally shallow", Newman says. "People call them cold-blooded predators." But he questioned whether this was the whole story.

To tease apart why such people behave the way they do, Newman's team recruited 125 male prisoners convicted of serious crimes and scored them on traits characteristic of a psychopathic personality, including narcissism, impulsivity and callousness. About 20 per cent scored highly enough to be described as psychopathic - a proportion typical for criminals but well above the 1 per cent expected in the general population.

The researchers then hooked each prisoner up to a device that measures how strongly they blink - an indication of how afraid they are - and placed a screen in front of them. The subjects were warned that during tasks in which letters flashed on the screen, an electric shock would sometimes follow a red letter, but never a green one.

When instructed to push buttons to indicate whether letters were green or red, subjects with marked psychopathic characteristics flinched in response to red letters with the same strength as other subjects.

Yet when they were told to indicate whether letters were capitals or lower-case, the psychopathic prisoners barely blinked upon seeing red letters, while the others continued to anticipate the mild shock (Biological Psychiatry, DOI: 10.1016/j.biopsych.2009.07.035).

This suggests that psychopathic individuals sense fear as much as anyone, and only seem fearless because they find it harder to pay attention to what is scary and what is not, says Newman, who hopes his hypothesis can be used to discourage psychopathic repeat offenders. "They're famous for being difficult if not impossible to treat," he says.

Donald Hands, director of psychology at the Wisconsin Department of Corrections, is working with Newman to design a pilot treatment programme. Reminding psychopathic lawbreakers of the immediate consequences of their actions, such as getting arrested and sent back to prison, might help to dissuade them from reoffending, he says.

Newman's finding may also persuade prison authorities to treat psychopathic individuals differently. "I think this shows that there's some humanity there," Hands says. "It challenges the belief that they are robots."

Sociopath Vs. Psychopath: There is a Difference

When someone hears the words psychopath or sociopath they automatically start thinking of some awful, derange, serial killer. That might have been true years ago, however the difference in the two have finally been
revealed. Before understanding the two personality disorders, you first must understand what exactly each
disorder consists of.

A sociopath is one who is affected with a personality disorder marked by antisocial behavior. A psychopath is a person with an antisocial personality disorder, manifested in aggressive, perverted, criminal, or amoral behavior without empathy or remorse. The two might sound the same to some, however the differences between sociopaths and psychopaths are very real.

David Lykken a behavioral geneticist for the University of Minnesota has come to an interesting conclusion regarding the differences between sociopaths and psychopaths. Lykken studies revealed that psychopaths are born with temperamental differences that lead them to being risk seekers, impulsive, fearless as well as not being able to socialize normally. Sociopaths have normal temperaments, and their personality disorder tends to effect their lives regarding parenting, peers, and their intelligence.

Sociopaths can be anyone from your mother, father, best friend, neighbor or even your co-worker, and you would not even realize that they are dealing with this disorder that affects everything in their daily life. Sociopaths go above and beyond themselves to make sure that other people around them have no idea that their life is something other than what it is. More than likely you have met one or two sociopaths in your life and not even realize it.

Psychopaths on the other hand are very flamboyant with how they deal with their disorder. Some famous psychopaths that you might know about are Charles Manson, Richard Ramirez, Theodore Bundy and David Berkowitz. These four men are famous for being some of the most notorious and manipulative serial killers in history. Not all psychopaths are as out there as these four men, however their rage is almost always as intense, it just depends on how they channel it.

1. Sociopaths are very charming.
2. Sociopaths can be extremely manipulative and will try to con you whenever possible.
3. Sociopaths feel that they are entitled to everything.

4. Sociopaths will lie continuously to get what they want. They can even sometimes manipulate a lie detector.
5. Sociopaths have no remorse, shame or guilt.
6. Sociopaths will show love and happiness only when it serves their purpose. None of the feelings are genuine.
7. Sociopaths have no room for love in their life.
8. Sociopaths need to have excitement in their lives or live on the edge.
9. Sociopaths have lack of empathy hen their victims suffer pain that they have caused.
10. Sociopaths believe that they are all mightier than tho, there is no concern on how their behavior impacts others.
11. Sociopaths usually have a long history of juvenile delinquency as well as behavior problems.
12. Sociopaths will never take blame for anything they have done to anyone no matter if it is family or friend.
13. Sociopaths have many sexual partners and tend to act out many sexual acts.
14. Sociopaths rarely stay in one place for a long time (home/work).
15. Sociopaths will change themselves if they know it will keep them from being found out.

Characteristics of a psychopath are as followed:

1. Psychopaths use superficial charm to lure their victims.
2. Psychopaths are extremely self-centered.
3. Psychopaths must always do something to keep themselves from boredom.
4. Psychopaths are very deceptive and tend to lie continuously.
5. Psychopaths show no remorse of guilt towards their victims.
6. Psychopaths are very predatory and usually will live off other people.
7. Psychopaths have many sexual partners in their lifetime.
8. Psychopaths are very impulsive with their lifestyle.
9. Psychopaths are always blaming other people for their actions.
10. Psychopaths never have a realistic view of their lives. (king of the world or from another planet)
11. Psychopaths always want psychological gratification in sexual and criminal activities.
12. Psychopaths tend to try suicide, rarely succeeding.

If you are interested in learning more about the difference of psychopaths and sociopaths I would definitely recommend you reading two specific books. The first book is Violent Attachments by J. Reid Meloy. The second
book I recommend reading is The Sociopath Next Door by Martha Stout. Both books will bring you into the minds
of both personality disorders which will allow you to understand even greater the difference in the two.

That's one heck of a post there Flames. You were meant to live huh! I've been around some violent folk but they all avoid me and I keep my distance. The place I grew up in is the most drug, and alcohol ridden in the nation, the crime came after that. It's good that I've seen the dark side.

I'm kind of behind on the forum and was trying to figure out before how a psychological tendency can be passed down through DNA. I hear people saying that it does but still there is no evidence. The brain damage caused by drugs, toxins, alcohol gets passed down in the fetus and that may trigger psychopathic tendencies but that's not the cause of their behavior, nor is it a DNA problem, but a physiological defect.

So I found some theories about the origins of the psychopathic mind and it makes so much sense depending on if the person is more of the cro magnun hominid species or homo species, and possible neanderthal species who were supposed to have been more evolved. So it goes way back to the original DNA of the prototypes:

Cleckley is describing a person who is able to mimic the human personality, but who leaves the impression that something is not there. They have a personality structure which “functions in a manner apparently identical with that of normal, sane functioning” and yet when all is said and done, “we are dealing here not with a complete man at all but with something that suggests a subtly constructed reflex machine which can mimic the human personality perfectly” to the point that “no one who examines him in a clinical setting can point out in scientific or objective terms why, or how, he is not real.”
Organic portals which is similar to the brain waves.

Most Organic Portals have no inclination to break laws, in fact the majority have no real inclinations at all other than to pursue the “A influences” (Mouravieff’s term) otherwise known as the social norms, such as money, sex, marriage, fame or any of a host of other “ideals” that we are all encouraged to strive for from an early age. The attainment of these goals is held up in global society as the culmination of the search for happiness, yet it is evident from the state of our world today that true happiness remains as illusory and elusive as ever…at least for those who have an inkling that there is “something more”.
So where do these “life goals” that serve us so badly come from? Is it possible that they are in fact someone else’s ideas and goals for us…is it in someone else’s interest that most of us expend our energies and efforts in a fruitless pursuit of chimerical happiness?
This concept is not new at cassiopaea.org and is therefore an idea that will not be strange to regular readers of the site, but what is new and indeed very strange is the idea that there could be billions of these Organic Portals who have been vectored toward keeping those unaware of this cocept lost in the "wilderness and desert", ensuring the continued production of “loosh” from all of humanity. It should be noted here that we are not talking of some form of malignancy or evil on the part of Organic Portals, rather it would seem that they are simply doing and acting according to their natures, which it appears is to a large extent “soul-less”.
As the research, ideas and thoughts developed it was one revelation after another, and it soon became clear how possible this grand plan could have been implemented:
It seems there are possibly 3 billion organic portals sharing the planet, that is, one out of two people on the planet may be effectively soul-less.
Q: In Book III of his Gnosis, Mouravieff discusses what he calls "pre-Adamic humanity" and "Adamic humanity." As I read this I could see that the thing I was struggling to understand in terms of psychopathy as discussed in the Adventures Series, was exactly what Mouravieff was describing. However, he was using the Bible to explain it, and that just didn't quite work. Nevertheless, the basic idea is that pre-Adamic human types basically have no "soul," nor any possibility of growing one. This is certainly shocking, but there have been many recent scholarly discussions of this matter based on what seems to be clinical evidence that, indeed, there are human beings who are just "mechanical" and have no "inner" or "higher self" at all. Gurdjieff talked about this and so did Castaneda. So, I asked if his ideas about the two basic TYPES of humans were, as far as they went, accurate.
A: Indeed, though again, there is a "Biblical Gloss." [The pre-Adamic types are] "organic" portals between levels of density.
This, of course, raised the issue of whether or not trying to "help" or "save" such individuals was a waste of time.
A: Pretty much. Most of them are very efficient machines. The ones that you have identified as psychopaths are "failures." The best ones cannot be discerned except by long and careful observation.

Okay now for some female perspectives LOL, well it's not that really but what I say below is a FACT.

Some folks were wondering why the gals always go for the psychopaths. Well it's for the same reason why Eve fell for the devil too. And that is..........because females will do anything for love and the psychopath knows how to con them in that department (read what they do in the research) and others as well. A gal doesn't care if it's the devil or not, instead of going for the booze or pills or killing themselves they will do anything for love. And anyone who gives that to them will do.

A gal wants to be saved from the hells of life, who doesn't, and have a savior and the manipulating psychopath say they will do just that but it's all a scheme and the gals end up harming themselves even more.
A gal needs to be told they look fine just the way they are and don't have to look like or behave as the media wants them to. They are fine just like they are and would look even more beautiful if they took care of themselves in all ways.
But instead of self empowerment there is insecurities, they look to the psychopath who promises them things and tells them what they desperately need to hear and lie and tell them that they look just fine, that's why women like to be told they are beautiful because they don't believe they are okay as is, because of the damn media and all the other brainwashings.

So why does a gal need all this love. It's because of the chemical estrogen. Don't know if it has something to do with the bonding of offspring and has to be there for the survival and caring of the species or else a very clever being put that in females to be weakened with this so called powerful drug called love.

So...a female psychopath who has the intrinsic mechanism to also seek out love and caring would be doubly dubious and dangerous...no?

Flames I'm sure you heard of a gal having a kid just so that she can love someone or even have someone love her. That happens alot.

I wasn't saying that a woman who is controlled by her horomones is a psychopath, but it sure can make her crazy or do those kind of things. Estrogen is a drug or a chemical and a very powerful one that can cause someone to do some real strange things. But it's not really who they are. Hmm I wonder is anyone who they really are!
And is there something missing in a gal or something that was taken out?

But I'll tell you who the psychopathic females are. They are the one's manipulated by the environment, the one's that will do anything for money. They will lure the guy with sex, so watch out, double danger. Sadly, a lot of those women are from places of no opportunity or just about anywhere in these times and will do what they can to use the system and others in order to make a living or whatever they can for money. It's too bad one has to equate money with survival.

tgII I got the answer wrong, darn! How am I going to survive and out maneuver the psychopaths!

Simple, help us expose them.

Just pulled this off the Red Ice site, this psycho marketer was referenced
on Red Ice once before, didn't pay too much attention to him until just
now. Alright, first up, view this article from Red Ice on, Clotaire Rapaille,
this lunatic marketing guru from France.



Where was he when GM went belly up?

Did you read the article on this marketing guru, if you didn't I can't continue,
if you did, now view Doctor David Morris' explanation of "psychopaths in
marketing."
To be fair, I haven't really looked at Clotaire Rapaille carefully
enough to actually say he is a psychopath, but he sure comes damn close.

So, what was the idea suggested the other day, corporations are
psychopathic reflections of their CEOs/managers
, what better
example can be given than watching how suppliers of chickens for
Kentucky Fried Cruelty and their employees slam chickens in to
concrete walls and than stomp on them?

  • ...because there really is no money in watermelon or mangoes.


Don't know about no money in watermelons, Alfred certainly thought there
was. Psychopathic corporations and watermelons, so what's the connection?

Got me to thinking, remember Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 movie Psycho with
Anthony Perkins as Norman Bates the psycho
?

Remember the scene where Vera Miles is in the shower and in the shadow you
can see the knife plunging into her nude body, well the sound of that knife
being "plunged into human flesh" was something Hitchcock wanted perfectly
replicated and synchronized, so he sent his technicians out and guess what,
the sound was synchronized perfectly with sensitive mics and spliced/edited
into the exact sequence.

The sound you heard was a knife being 'stabbed' into a watermelon, so
the next time you bite into a watermelon, you will never see them in the same
way again.

In all my years of being in public school, no teacher has ever mentioned which presidential candidate they support or asked the students or myself who we were voting for. This kind of thing was never mentioned other than the importance of registering to vote when of age.
And if someone had asked me, I would have told them it is none of their business.
