“For someone who claims to be a psychologist” – you’re at it again, gaslighting, BI. Same with the remark about “judging” Muslims and their beliefs in the Koran. You’re a weapons-grade gaslighter, which of course is a characteristic of psychopathy.
Reflecting recently on the inability to empathise, narcissism and psychopathy (no idea why, other than the comment of one poster to the film in the OP), I recalled an entertaining documentary on just that – see the link below.
It mostly explores the genetic aspects of psychopathy, and points out that – in contrast to the stereotype – not all psychopaths are likely to commit murder, especially if they were brought up in a stable environment during childhood.
Indeed, they often go on to succeed in business, and certain professions such as surgery, advertising, law and politics, because they are able to readily demonstrate the kind of behaviours which often facilitate progression in thoise fields – ruthlessness, coldness, a lack of empathy and so on.
As an example, you only have to look at he current front bench of government to see a few suspects, in contrast to the other parties which seem to be led by relatively normal, well-adjusted people, particularly the Greens – but that’s another story).
In contrast, professions like teaching, nursing and social work, are said to be not popular with psychopaths, because they require a high degree of empathy, and often require a more collaborative approach.
The doc. also shows some interesting representations of psychopathy in films / tv etc., plus interviews with those affected. If you’ve an hour to kill (pardon the pun) tonight or whenever, take a look.
