I've been reading up on psychopaths. About 3% of men and 1% of women are psychopaths, also termed sociopath, same thing... All psychopaths are narcissistic but not all narcissistic people are psychopaths. I'm thinking that Psychopaths are essentially autistic people that have cobbled together enough of a personality to be charming.. They do not have a value system in place. That is the essence of Autism, inability to put together a value system and they have no empathy for man or beast. They "win" all the time because they always run their own agenda. They consider polite, cooperative people to be weaklings.... We've all encountered them but we didn't always know what we were dealing with... I'm finding them here and there, I don't want to have to stop and deal with any of them so I wanted to have a list of clues that would raise flags so I could just sidestep that particular type of cowpatty in the great cow pasture of life... So far I have: --Wide eyed stare, reptilian , a look like they are appraising you --Play the Victim Card early --don't respond to slaps until actually slapped --adept at juggling lots of things --Jargon Masters --sudden or intimidating intrusion of space --charm and charisma --tantrums --no affection for animals --entangling stuff. They are hypnotists actually, shock, confusion, etc., are inductions for hypnosis --natural Neuro Linguistic Programmers: they are about the mind manipulation If anybody can add to this, please, feel free to do so..
