How would you know someone is if they don't act anti-socially?

There's a funny story about that...

ďI got to the bottom of the stack, and saw this scan that was obviously pathological,Ē he says, noting that it showed low activity in certain areas of the frontal and temporal lobes linked to empathy, morality and self-control. Knowing that it belonged to a member of his family, Fallon checked his labís PET machine for an error (it was working perfectly fine) and then decided he simply had to break the blinding that prevented him from knowing whose brain was pictured. When he looked up the code, he was greeted by an unsettling revelation: the psychopathic brain pictured in the scan was his own.

How ive understood it previously, is that psychopaths do criminal activity for the pleasure, the profit or the narcissistic component in a very cold and planned manner... serial killers, bankers; while sociopaths do criminal activity out of necessity but still having empathy and probably feel guilty about things theyve done, but they still do it because they have more empathy for those close to them than those they dont know (for example, all the Guadalupan Cholos, that, even with a life of crime they believe in the Virgin Mary and repentance).

Or Kill Me / Re: Negativity

Great part of it is the "us" vs. "them" mentality up to a certain point.

"We" do the best we can, with all the excuses and rationalizations for doing poorly.

But "them" they deliberately are doing a shitty job, and all their shortcomings are bullshit.

http://www.diffen.com/difference/Psychopath_vs_Sociopath   :?

That entry does a pretty poor job of expressing the difference, IMO. From the reading I've done, mostly the books by Hare and Kiehl, psychopathy is a heritable condition that is primarily biologically-based, while sociopathy is an environmentally-induced condition.

The lines there really blur, because having the genetic predisposition for psychopathy is not a guarantee that it will develop. However, I think they make the distinction because sociopathy is a condition that was unlikely to be the default condition of the sufferer without significant social factors, and can often be treated, while psychopathy is more likely  to emerge without significant social factors, and is less tractable.

May i ask why it bothers you so much that people interchangeably use the terms when the terms themselves are so blurry?

So, has anyone done a psychopath-rights tumblr? Like, check your neurotypical/empathy privilege?

I think there was, a while back.  After BBC's Sherlock was on TV, and he referred to himself as a sociopath.

Don't forget that chick who wrote a book and went on a talk show circuit. Although I'd be willing to put money down that she has Narcissistic Personality Disorder, not Antisocial Personality Disorder.

Also it irritates me that so many people conflate sociopathy and psychopathy. I grant that they are poorly defined, but at least two major researchers distinguish between them.

TBH im a psychology major and i dont know the exact differentiation, and im a relatively well read person.

Cain, I'm worried about how much time you're spending on Tumblr.

Yeah, I know. Itís been months since the last update but thereís been nothing new to add. Weíve been having absolutely no progress at all because I feel that thereís nothing left to try anymoreÖ Nevertheless, things are still lively in this head, hereís a quick summary for each of us.

Shai:

Adopted a gray kitten from one of my lucid dreams, (itís not a tulpa as far as we know or at least it doesnít seem to be more intelligent than a normal house cat). Has been singing a lot during work as we listen to music from a MP3 player, her voice overrides the vocals of the songs and sounds beautiful. Possesses very rarely and only switches in to eat cookies, cake and other sweet stuff (plus petting my sisterís cat everytime we visit her).

Telk:

Heís still fronting for most of the time, has cut down the alcohol consumption a lot. Doesnít have the time to socialize as much as before since heís started taking the work a lot more seriously than before but during weekends heís still the same old Telk. Still enjoys everyday life as much as one can.

Cherry:

I havenít been seeing her as much lately since sheís usually at Telkís house and Iím on the other side of the wonderland, but she switches in to clean since Telk despises it. Organizes everything and has learned to play bass in the wonderland.

Me (Oni):

I usually fill in for Telk once or twice in the day when he wants to take a breather and front during evenings and early mornings when he sleeps. Most of my on time during free time I just play World of Tanks. I know, uninteresting as hell but thatís just the usual me.

I donít know how to end this update other than vague promises that the life will still go on pretty much the same it has been, but Iím sure if something worth writing about pops up Iíll be updating it in here. Thereíll be a party of some sorts of course when we get to day 1000 so thereís that at least to wait for, so until next time!

Don't tell me you're not hooked.

You know that saying, ďif you talk to God long enough, he just might talk back?Ē Itís like that, but with animated ponies.

 :kingmeh:

It's like a truly endless supply of idiocy.

Is this the new Multiple Personality Disorder, now that craze has faded in popularity?

It seems interesting to have dufferent states of mind tagged with a name... assuming its after a great effort in self awareness and pattern recognition rather than childish egocentrical rambling.

I think more money can be made with MLP/Fleshlight fusions.  The My Little Pony manifestation of the Real Doll.

That sounds like work.

That sounds like something that some fucker must have already done. I'd be AMAZED if not but I'm sure as fuck not going looking for this.

Now "My Little Pony Sex Doll" is in my search history.

My Chrome redirects to a blank page after 3 seconds, protecting me from poor viewing decisions!

Here's some idle thoughts about things that might help the situation:

1.) As soon as the relevant technology starts to see large-scale production all current police sidearms should be replaced with models that use biometric verification to identofy legitimate users, thus ending the legitimacy of "he tried to take my gun" as a relevant excuse. The officers themselves would also be protected in the rare cases when someone actually does go for their gun. Write your congressthing.

2.) If the sense of espirit de corps among police officers could somehow be reduced or eliminated (though i don't know how this would be achieved), police would actually be willing to arrest other officers that they catch breaking the law.

Ever seen what happened to Judge Dredd Stallone? I have.

Yeah - while it does accurately sum up her position, that's not the sort of idiom and language she normally uses. 

That said, searching for it did net me this awesome Daily Currant article (yes, I know the Currant is satire): http://dailycurrant.com/2014/11/20/sarah-palin-send-immigrants-back-across-ocean-to-mexico/

Only the wisdom of ALASKA knoes that Rio Grande translates to Huge Ocean, Caine you should know better with that much educations

 :lulz:

Like, swords used to have cross-guards to prevent slipping-up of the hands while thrusting, or slide-downs from the opponents swords...

It seems realy silly, cause sabers arent heavy and the cross-guard wouldnt prevent a slide down.

I dont get it.  :?

oh also, i had an honest question for the thread. I have had this profile on OKC for years now, with minimal success (few real dates, and even fewer message responses) I haven't really updated it in a while and i was wondering if i should just tweak the stuff thats changed in the meantime(for instance, I've now got my BA and am no longer a student) or start over from scratch. I've got a rough draft for a new profile, but first i'd like to know what you guys think. here it is:

 https://www.okcupid.com/profile/Chelagoras

In addition to everything Nigel said, get rid of the income, add a couple more things on "you should message me if," switch out your profile pic for one with better lighting and focus, and answer another couple hundred questions. Oh, and your media section needs some newer entries, too.

I don't know if this is universal, but every time I see "kissing" "cuddling" or similar smarmy shit in the good at section I barf a little in my mouth. This may be a personal problem.
would the luchador pics be too much? they have a much better lighting and focus and are pretty epic in their own right. On the other hand I could see how someone could write me off as a whacko for posting them. On the strange vestigial third hand however, i am a proud and unabashed whacko, and thus I feel I should be honest about what i'm bringing to the table here.  :lulz:

Showing your own personal brand of whacko is a good thing, filters out those that are turned off by it and attracts those more in the same wavelenght... saves time for everyone involved... on the other hand, if you are NOT looking for something meaningful, you should go as generic and positive have funish presentation as possible... so it depends on your objective.

Note: psychos should avoid this advice and rather focus on fix their personal flaws instead of exalting them  :horrormirth:

I got to know them by "Cookie Thumper" it was something else  :eek:

Personally ahve heard some of their albums, its too bad they are too much rap oriented which im not too fond of to listen to consistently, such a shame, cause their concept and work is great.

If i barf into a bag of cheetos, and then like, eat it again, i get ALL the vitamin c needs and more nutritious meal, because this guy i know, yeah, he told me that our stomach acid is not strong enough to handle processed foods, so if you eat your barf, the second time around it gets easily digested and all the nutrients SPROUT and you absorb them. But when you need to make poopoo you have to hold it in for 8 hours or longer, so that said nutrients have time to get in the intestinal walls, otherwise they escapes and go to waste.
