Anyway, this is why I'm one of the few people to really believe in the whole Illuminati/NWO conspiracy. I really can see things (motives, strategies, power grabs) that most people can't.edit on 8/14/2011 by BirdOfillOmen because: (no reason given)

you need to understand
psychopaths are born psychopaths
is not the environment that makes them what they are
off course ,the environment can transform normal people, and they will have psychopaths features, BUT they can be fixed, if they find love, help ...
psychopaths cant be fixed, their brain is basically broken

I was involved with a sociopath for 5 years. It took me a while to figure it out. He was the BEST liar I have ever encountered. When questioned (or felt backed against a wall), they will spin it back on you - projection they are masters at.
They mimic emotions. They don't love like typical people. They "act" like they have feelings (love) towards you. They mimic what you give them.
They feel no remorse or guilt. They will cheat, when/if confronted, they will lie and make you think you are insecure or imagining things.
They are takers. You will feel emotionally drained. You will give, and they will take all they can get from you.
They will make you feel sorry for them, they love to work off of pity.
Nothing is ever their fault. They are always the one who got screwed over, misunderstood, etc.
Life is a game to them. It's about "winning". They will tell you what they know you want to hear, just to get what they want.
If you are ever in a relationship that feels "off", you can't put your finger on what doesn't feel "right", RUN....run fast and far. They will try to suck you back in, OR just move on to the the next person they can deceive. Or they will move on (discard you), but when they can't find another person to buy their crap, they will go back to the one who they know they can manipulate. As long as they get adored, an ego stroke, some one to care about their daily life/world, they will keep you around.
If you know the way they work, the best piece of advice is LISTEN TO YOUR GUT! It will sense something isn't right...listen to it! Before it's too late!

I felt I had to make a post on this topic, as it hits relatively close to home.
Having matched myself up with the 5 traits or whatever, and watching the video, I can safely say that I'm a Sociopath. Of course, I've known this for a long time, after a number of failed relationships, manipulations, etc. As well as lengthy and, unfortunately, unsuccessful clinical treatment and psychiatric care. I'd like to clarify something though, especially for those of you who call someone afflicted by this "soulless" or "heartless". You need to understand that, as a Socio/Psychopath, you simply don't feel anything at all. It's not an active choice to hurt people, to lie, to deceive, it's really more of a need, a compulsion.
I think a less judgmental point of view would aid you greatly in understanding the plight of some of these people. I mean, I don't regard myself as evil, or soulless, and I go to great lengths to avoid hurting people. It takes a lot of effort, but I feel as though I've mastered myself, and the power this thing has over me. I don't think that this should be viewed apart or differently from any other mental illness.
The difference, in my opinion, is in choosing to master these impulses and not give into it. The scary thing is, I assure you I can "sweet talk" or "charm" anyone, hands down. I've had friends tell me this, that it sort of creeps them out, and while that isn't necessarily a compliment, it stands true. I agree that Sociopaths can do some real damage if they are given ground and practice, but judging all of us as though we're monsters just isn't fair. I didn't choose to be this way, I just am, and every day is a battle.
Thanks for your time, hopefully this post aids to the discussion and not to fan the flames of anger.
14. The Tripartition of Mankind
Mankind came to be in three essential types, the spiritual, the psychic, and the material, conforming to the triple disposition of the Logos, from which were brought forth the material ones and the psychic ones and the spiritual ones. Each of the three essential types is known by its fruit. And they were not known at first but only at the coming of the Savior, who shone upon the saints and revealed what each was.
The spiritual race, being like light from light and like spirit from spirit, when its head appeared, it ran toward him immediately. It immediately became a body of its head. It suddenly received knowledge in the revelation. The psychic race is like light from a fire, since it hesitated to accept knowledge of him who appeared to it. (It hesitated) even more to run toward him in faith. Rather, through a voice it was instructed, and this was sufficient, since it is not far from the hope according to the promise, since it received, so to speak as a pledge, the assurance of the things which were to be. The material race, however, is alien in every way; since it is dark, it shuns the shining of the light, because its appearance destroys it. And since it has not received its unity, it is something excessive and hateful toward the Lord at his revelation.
