PsychologyToday.com: Key traits that sociopaths and psychopaths share include:
- A disregard for laws and social mores
- A disregard for the rights of others
- A failure to feel remorse or guilt
Many sociopaths are able to form an attachment to a particular individual or group, although they have no regard for society in general or its rules.
Psychopaths, on the other hand, are unable to form emotional attachments or feel real empathy with others, although they often have disarming or even charming personalities. Psychopaths are very manipulative. They learn to mimic emotions, despite their inability to actually feel them, and will appear normal to unsuspecting people. Psychopaths are often well educated and hold steady jobs. Some are so good at manipulation and mimicry that they have families and other long-term relationships without those around them ever suspecting their true nature.
When committing crimes, psychopaths carefully plan out every detail in advance and often have contingency plans in place. Unlike their sociopathic counterparts, psychopathic criminals are cool, calm, and meticulous. Their crimes will be highly organized and generally offer few clues for authorities to pursue. Intelligent psychopaths make excellent white-collar criminals and "con artists" due to their calm and charismatic natures.
Psychopathy is the most dangerous of all antisocial personality disorders because of the way psychopaths dissociate emotionally from their actions, regardless of how terrible those actions may be.
|Journalist Edward Klein, in his new book Unlikeable: The Problem with Hillary,
unveils the lengths Hillary Clinton’s campaign will go to avoid the mistakes of the 2008 race
when Obama famously
said: "You’re likeable enough, Hillary."
Klein reveals how Bill Clinton reached out to Steven Spielberg for help, getting acting lessons to make Hillary appear more "likable". But Hillary didn’t think she needed any help: “I get $250,000 to give a speech, and these Hollywood jackasses are going to tell me how to do it!”
But Bill insisted: “Your policies and talking points are solid. You can use Charlotte [Chelsea’s baby daughter] to emphasize how you’re all about women and children. Now the challenge is to re-package you in 2016 as a strong but loveable older woman."
Politico (Sept 2015) How Hillary Clinton is using old photographs to make herself more 'relatable':
The nostalgic pictures are designed to present her as an average person — rather than a global brand — and to neutralize the negative image Clinton can sometimes project as the untrustworthy political insider campaigning in a rich lady's uniform of bold-colored pantsuits and a helmet of blonde hair.
With the mountain of information that's been available over the years on the subject of Bill and Hillary Clinton (even if only 1% were true), it completely amazes me that, even despite Hillary Clinton's very low polling numbers for honesty, people are still voting for a lying, deceitful and manipulative psychopath. Bill Maher was absolutely right: Americans are stupid!
