Psychopath MRI - Let's See the Scan

Psychopaths extract emotional words differently

In this video, Doctor Robert Hare says, "psychopaths come to a different conclusion with emotional words...tells us perhaps, the psychopath doesn't really extract emotional information from words most other people would do, so this led to the spec study done in new York."

I'm not a linguist but have always been fascinated with the origin of the English language and the etymology of words, so my question is, has the English language somehow been in any way contributing in any significant influential way to the behavior of psychopaths?

Another question I have, has the money system we are currently forced to live under contributed in any way to the voracity and cunning of psychopaths?

After viewing a few videos on psychopathy off Youtube, I discovered this comment:
See, what you fucks fail to understand is that emotions are not what makes us human, they aren't what separate us from other species. It's a petty argument. Intelligence and consciousness are all that differs. Emotions lead to the practice of suicide, ritualistic suffering, blind following, mindless worshiping, irrationality, among other shit. So if anything, emotions make us less human, since they cloud our judgment and encourage ignorance.

I'm not a psychopath, just a realist.
Well, looks like I'm a "fuck" I guess. "It's a petty argument" isn't it, this discussion of psychopaths, but there comes a time when emotions are distinguished from compassion for other human beings. Is this being a "fuck?"

The Corbett Report - A Discusion on Psychopaths

Our Leaders Are Psychopaths

Coming to conclusions about the world we live in is often hard to come to terms with and in our continuing efforts here at the on the trail of psychopaths blog, here is an informative podcast taken off where videos and podcasts are conveniently archived.

In this podcast, James Corbett, reveals some of the insights about psychopaths Doctor Robert Hare has uncovered in his years of research. James Corbett makes connections between Political Ponerology and Doctor Hare's work. Definitely worth listening to.

"They walk among us. On the outside they're just like you and me, but on the inside they are unfeeling automatons who care only for themselves. They are the psychopaths, and they are in control of our governments, our corporations, our military and all of the positions of power. Join us this week on The Corbett Report as we delve into Political Ponerology, a diagnosis of our politicians and a brief look at the bigger picture."

Are We Living in a Pathocracy

Pathocracy - The Scientific Application of Terror?

This Youtube caught my attention while doing a search for 'psychopath' and 'pathocracy' for blog content related to Political Ponerology - have we arrived at the point where terrorism is scientifically and regularly conducted?

Alexandre de Tocqueville described regime de la Terreur as a "methodology to make the masses familiar with the realities created by elites."

What are the consequences when those "elites" are psychopaths?

A test to determine if you are a psychopath

Take this test to determine if you are a psychopath


Read this question, come up with an answer and then scroll down to the bottom for the result. This is not a trick question. It is as it reads. No one I know has gotten it right. Few people do.

A woman, while at the funeral of her own mother, met a guy whom she did not know. She thought this guy was amazing. She believed him to be her dream guy so much that she fell in love with him right there, but never asked for his number and could not find him. A few days later she killed her sister.

Question: What is her motive for killing her sister?

[Give this some thought before you answer...see answer below]

Answer: She was hoping the guy would appear at the funeral again.

If you answered this correctly, you think like a psychopath. This was a test by a famous American psychologist used to determine if one has the same mentality as a killer. Many arrested serial killers took part in the test and answered the question correctly. If you didn't answer the question correctly, good for you...

If you got the answer correct, please let me know so I can take necessary steps so our paths don't cross.

Why should you build such a thing

One of my favorites

Decided to take a break from the seriousness of this topic remembering back to the black comedy of Stanley Kubrick's movie Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. I never considered what a psychopath was and being ignorant of this fact, watched this movie many years ago more for entertainment not realizing the subtle connections to names and symbols of American - Russian relations involved in the 'Cold War.'

Now, looking back on this particular scene, Peter Sellers is the 'perfect' psychopath as Doctor Strangelove.

Stop the madness indeed

I have often wondered if elite families from the upper rungs of society have not been accidentally, or even intentionally, breeding offspring with specific genetic traits of psychopathy as this article alludes to.

Are You Involved With A Psychopath?
Michael G. Conner, Psy.D

There is a growing discussion among researchers to suggest there may be a genetic influence that creates a psychopathic personality. The psychopath may lack the ability to physically feel what others identify as the physical sensation of guilt. They can feel fear, anger, sadness in the moment but not guilt for what they did or what they are about to do. Some sociologists believe that a sexually promiscuous psychopath who can live off others is a survivor and may represent one of many genes for survival in the human species.

Even more surprising has been the observation that many adult psychopaths do not seem to benefit from support, counseling or therapy and may in fact commit crimes again and sooner because of it. Research using brain scanning technology has revealed that the brain of a psychopath functions and processes information differently. One famous brain imaging study showed that psychopaths can remain calm looking photos of dead bodies in automobile accidents where as other people were clearly upset. They don't use their brain they way others do. This suggests that they may be physically different from normal people.
