So what if someone is a psychopath? Doesn't make us bad guys. Just different than you.

Disclaimer, this is only an example I choose. I don't know this person or his character!
Ignore the smile, put your hands on the face so that you only see the irises. It's not the best example, but ok for now.

You may be one of the fortunate ones who has no demons and no negative narrative churning about in that interior world of yours. If so, congratulations! Join the Catholic Church and someday you may be beatified. ;p

Most people have demons running around their kingdoms, and if they aren't identified then they are truly free to conspire towards their own devious ends.

I hope that is the case for you, because I have my own garden to tend, and there are enough thorns and weeds trying to spout up constantly that I don't have time to tend other's.

How to spot a psychopath: They make it easy, they're called trolls.

And yet the internet promotes it in ways. Society promotes this behavior. Is there any wonder why we're in trouble?

Psychopaths are not normal people troubled by what ever! They are a different brand of creatures.

the most common injury on the eastern front among serving german soldiers was frost bite in there trigger finger and it was realized that the human urge not to kill another human being was actually causing there brains to shut down blood flow to there trigger fingers


More likely they kept their trigger finger on the trigger too much and the cold metal frost bit their fingers; or alternatively, they had gloves on but cut off the trigger finger end, thus resulting in cold damage... psychologically cutting off blood supply to the trigger finger because they didn't want to shoot anyone is a BIG stretch.

i think even more so than showing emotions, a true sociopath has trouble reading emotions.

if you could sit down across the table from one and show them pictures of only peoples faces displaying various emotions, they would have trouble reading them

They are masters at understanding people and their needs, Aspergers (who do have emotions!) have trouble reading others.

I don't like people who judge others based on how they look.

Essentially drawing a conclusion based on an assumption at that point.

You do realize that evil looking people can be super friendly and good looking people can be super evil right?

ok.
if you say so
understanding what a person needs is not the same as not being able to read emotion in thier face

whatever

My point is that the inside of somebody bleeds through their masks. Why are you talking about looks? I am not talking about behaviour which can be easily faked. Anyways.

They have to make an effort to understand emotions. MRI's show that mirror neurons are not triggered in psychopaths when confronted with facial expressions.

BY the time the actions make clear that you are dealing with a psychopath, it's too late...

Coming from a psychopath; I tend to use thoughts and images of what makes me happy when conversing with others; I use the "proper" memory to match the conversation. Eyes still light up like Christmas tree lights; nobody the wisest.


Now I want to know what makes you happy.

Psychopaths are sociopaths who entertain dangerous delusions, although modern psychology uses the terms interchangeably. The way the show you posted used the term psychopath is not accurate at all. If you are talking about independent creatures who are largely selfish and who are predatory towards others, we really ought to take the time to coin a term because that is a much broader style of living.

Please don't conflate the ideas, and please don't scapegoat. In many ways, independent ones have traits that are useful once they engage in the path of rectification that the average self-sacrificers could almost never emulate.

An intelligent disassociative individual, what you might call a psychopath is just one type of creature, but in reality we are all on a spectrum with one another. We have all been victims and we have all been conquerors to one degree or another. Forgiveness is the only path forward, imo.

I try to recognize the light within, understand the nature of the illness and move forward. No one is beyond hope.

King of dead eyes, the ones I mean, is Ted Bundy who was a psychopatic serial killer.
