the label is pretty confidently assigned even from a distance.
I've NEVER, in 30+ years of counseling and teaching seen such behavior from ANYONE WITHOUT a very serious degree of attachment disorder.
But the malady is epidemic. . . . in terms of the definition being
a serious degree of attachment disorder = that lack of sufficiently quality parenting from the first 6 years of life which results in significant
persistent relationship problems the rest of their life . . .
using that definition probably 80%+ of the general population has serious degrees of attachment disorder.
In my classes . . . of 35 to 75 students . . . over the last 30 years . . . it was a very rare class when I had more than 1-3 students who FAILED to
demonstrate serious degrees of attachment disorder.
Many classes had no such students.
Now what were you saying again?

It's hard for me to think of much of anyone in certain job categories who fail to demonstrate significant signs of attachment disorder. LEO's would be
one of those categories.
Preachers would be another. Military would be another.
Counselors et al would be another.
