      As does the left when attacking conservatives. The left demonizes cops as a propaganda tool, while silence on attacks on anyone not on the left is deafening. Thisbis why I am sure this

    Presidential Psychological Assessment 

    Principles of Propaganda

    Psychological Assessment of the President
    in our Constitutional Representative Democracy

    Our government can’t or won’t force our president to submit to a mental examination. Most psychological professionals honor their “Goldwater Rule” and won’t comment publicly without personally examining Trump. They have all defaulted, delinquent in publicly sharing their observations and concerns regarding the president’s mental state. They’ve left it up to us, the citizens of America, to perform this assessment ourselves.

    Maintain objectivity.

      Empathy isn’t an emotion. It can not be measured. Neither can a conscience. How can you use matrices that can not be measured to decide if someone is going to remain a free person or not? If you live in the US, or most countries in the west, it’s supposed to be that you are “innocent until proven guilty”. This psychopathy thing throws things out the window. And it is not based on any but subjective reasons.
      I understand that some people love being famous, or notorious for something, even if the reasons are made up. If the reasons are fictitious, then the study is, and so are the results.
      It is really simple. Every one should do their job. FBI should stop covering up for the liberal elite and actually investigate and prosecute crimes and stop harrassing people who have done nothing wrong, while jailing people on process crimes.
      Police should start investigating the crimes using the evidence collected and available, and using all the tools of available science.
      Judges should stop playing politics and judge using evidence.
      Leftists should just stop the nonsense about feelings and virtue signalling. No one cares if you pretend to be good or not. It’s just for show. Conservatives, stop putting up with the childish nonsense of the left. For those who prefer “the alternative sexual lifestyel”, keep it to yourself, everyone else does, why can’t you?
      In short, the world has a lot of growing up to do. This 2020 thing just showed it to us. I wrote this years ago, and maybe,just maybe, someone should consider what I have said.
      Most people prefer to be left alone. Let people solve their own problems. Even stupid people should be allowed to solve their problems, otherwise they might never realize that doing stupid things results in bad situations.
      None of you are God. You are all human beings. Your salvation comes from accepting you are a human being, with the limitations that you have, and acting within them to make your life better, whatever that entails.
      Life has become more challenging for a lot of people. Now is the time to pay attention to your world and become better at solving your problems. Good Luck

        I love how people with psychopathy stop by to try to discredit the scientific and MRI evidence of the existence psychopathy. Thanks for commenting.

      Howdy Tina!

      A good article and one that provokes lots of thought. The Hare PCL – R is an effective evaluation of psychopathy and considered highly reliable. However, it is a difficult test to administer. It often relies on an interview and other records. That said, it is predictive of behavior.

      Whether or not Trump is a psychopath or not is open to debate, even though, as I answer the questions on the test, he scores perfectly. In my evaluation on my blog, I’ve come to the conclusion that the best diagnosis is an unproductive malignant narcissist. Unproductive because of his executive dysfunction — his well-documented impulsivity and inability to manage his emotions and behavior; malignant because of his well-documented cruelty and callousness. And narcissism because of his well-documented narcissistic traits. He’s a textbook example of a narcissist. Fortunately, for me, experts like Bandy Lee agree for whatever that is worth.

      After writing my post on psychopathy and the police, I feel like the Dark Tetrad test or a version of PCL be given more widely for specific jobs like policing and teaching — sadistic teachers (I’m a teacher) are all too plentiful — and politicians.

      Huzzah!

        Hi Jack, thank you for commenting. It is my opinion that anyone who is incapable of empathy, remorse, and conscience means that they have psychopathy. I recently started trying (sometimes old habits die hard.) to not call people by their medical issue. Maybe it will help people, in general, to be open to learning more about the disorder, since it’s my experience that my warnings are usually ignored when I say “psychopath”. I really appreciate your fellowship in the awareness campaign!

        I have to add the caveat of “anyone who is incapable of empathy, remorse, and conscience from birth“, because there are an exorbitant amount of people around who are currently displaying those traits, even though they are capable. I don’t want to get blasted for tagging everyone as having psychopathy.

          Howdy Tina!
          There is a psychologist that has a theory on sexual offenders who suggests that one of the biggest contributors to offending of any kind is a lack of empathy for the target because if you had empathy for the target you would not harm them. Empathy ebbs and flows like all emotions do. You do not always experience the same degree of happiness and sadness throughout your day. The degree depends on what is going on in your environment. There is an internal or personality based component as well that we might call a propensity towards happiness, sadness, empathy, and every other emotion.

          I’m sure you’re aware that the psychopathic brain is structurally different than the non-psychopathic brain. That one way to diagnose psychopathy is by interpreting fMRI’s. And, that there are degrees of psychopathy. There are extreme psychopaths who have high scores on all four of the psychopath attributes, people who vary on which attributes they score high on, people who barely qualify score-wise as psychopaths, and people who just have some psychopathic traits.

          One assumes an extreme psychopath has the psychopathic brain and that would be from birth since it seems to be a difference in the formation of the brain.

          The purpose of a diagnosis is to predict future behavior and explain past behavior. What’s interesting about psychopathy is that it predicts criminal behavior pretty accurately. If a person is a psychopath they are pretty much guaranteed to be a rule-breaker and often criminal.

          All of the DSM-5 personality disorders include degrees of poor empathy and a lack of shame, remorse, and conscience. They all are willing to violate the rights of others to achieve their goals. There is a lot of nuance to diagnosing a personality disorder.

          One of the predictions that I made of Trump based on his diagnosis as a narcissist was that he would view the #COVID19 outbreak as a narcissistic wound — it would challenge his self-image as being perfect. If he tried to fight the pandemic and failed, he would be a failure and he cannot tolerate that image. If he did nothing, he could blame others, lie about doing something, and preserve his self-image of perfection. For him it was worth the sacrifice of 560,000+ lives and suffering of millions in order to preserve himself.

          A psychopath wouldn’t necessarily have made that decision. They might have, but they might not have. A psychopath could’ve recognized that it was in his self-interest to have fought the pandemic because it would’ve helped him be re-elected. Had Trump done something, anything, he probably would’ve been reelected.

          The narcissist is willing to hurt people to preserve their self-image of perfection, i.e. Trump allowing millions to suffer and die in the pandemic. A psychopath is willing to hurt people to achieve his goals. A sadist goes out of his way to hurt people. Hurting people is the goal. Some psychopaths and narcissists like Trump have sadistic streaks where they enjoy the pain they inflict on others, but it is not their primary motivator.

          All I’m saying is that diagnosis is a complicated process. We do it to help predict behavior and arrive at treatments — if they exist; I note that treatment for psychopathy does not really exist yet. But, to the degree that your diagnosis predicts behavior, is the degree that it is accurate. My experience with Trump is that narcissism better predicted his behavior as president than psychopathy did; although, he certainly has psychopathic traits and scores highly on the Hare PCL-R.

    Postcard to myself 

    20181120_200645

    There are venomous snakes in this box. You think it’s chocolates and that I’m sorry, but I’m not and it’s snakes.

    I have been going through some cards, letters and postcards from my life up until now. My old room is getting ripped out and replaced with something new, to cater to my parents’ obsession with decorating and modernising their house, so all these forgotten bits and pieces have been coming to light for the first time in 10, 15, in some cases 20, years. What can I say? I’m a magpie.

    And there’s this stash of old post, which has given me a new perspective on my upbringing. Because I was relatively late to become aware of psychopathy and specifically that it pertained to who I am (this I discovered at the age of 18; I’m now 25), I have been under the impression that other people in my life were similarly clueless about my nature. Not so.

    There’s the card in the picture, sent to me one Christmas by a school friend, who wrote that it “reminded me of you… happy Xmas, you weirdo.” There’s another card, sent by family friends, with reference to an atlas they bought me: “You always said you wanted to take over the world. Let this inspire you.” Rereading that today reminded me that, yes, I was a megalomaniacal motormouth at one stage of my childhood, and had evidently revealed some or all of my plans to this family – rookie Bond villain mistake. And that is why I will never get the chance to be tried for war crimes in The Hague.

    Then there was this bizarre Wallace and Gromit birthday card, sent to my grandad from all of my family, which read inside, in my mother’s spiky handwriting: “Happy birthday, Dad. This card was chosen by Jamie on the understanding that you’ll post it back to him.” It was dated 1997; I was three. Little control freak.

    Sure, so there’s no smoking gun. No “Ohhh my God, my baby’s a psycho, what do I dooo?” letter. But there’s knowledge – and acceptance – of my personality. I’m lucky to have parents who have never tried to deny who I am, and who have supported me from the start. It just goes to show that sometimes close friends and family know you better than you do yourself.


    Image result for kotor postcard

    In the same pile, I also came across a postcard from Montenegro, sent in 2008 by me… to me. It was postmarked and everything, sent par avion across Europe from the tiny Balkan state to my home in England. This is it, folks – peak narcissism:

    Dear future self,

    Ha! Ha! I’m on holiday, you’re not!

    Classy.

    It goes on –

    Hope the ol’ ear has cleared up by the time I get this.

    Oh, that’s right. I got an ear infection from the poorly-chlorinated swimming pool. I had to get some strange ear potion from the apothecary in Kotor. Yes, apothecary;  Montenegro’s a hell of a place.

    I am sitting on my apartment’s balcony. Jealous?

    Yes. Fuck you.

    Anyway, fuck you.

    Be you later,

    James

    Great, well thanks for that, 15-year old James.

    The moral of the story? Never meet your heroes, because they’re sure to disappoint.

      This is the weirdest post of yours I’ve seen. So you wrote a postcard to your “future self” and taunted your future self that you were on vacation and he (you) were not?

      Some learned people have called that “narcissism “. Narcissism requires some ability to be proud of, and there’s none displayed here. We call this vanity, being vain. A common trait among women, but horrifying to see among men. Oh well. Go eat your own flavor of sewage. The world can be your toilet. I coupd care less
