The Pearly Art of Communication

In the journey of the Pearl of Purity, we started by getting a more balanced view on responsibilities and learned to see how some often touted memes in our present day society – such as the laws of attraction –  are only age old scapegoating tactics used to distort our perception of how much control [...]

Psychopath or Sociopath? What's in a Name?

I use the term “psychopath ” to refer to a variety of disordered personalities whose interpersonal style is one of callous manipulation –in particular, those people who fall into the category of the Dark Triad, usually labeled narcissists, psychopaths and Machiavellianists.  Additionally,  you might be familiar with other terms used to describe these individuals: sociopath, [...]

Observing a Psychopath

Years ago, I rented a car and drove over a mountain pass to pick up the psychopath and his minion from his job site.  Psychopath rode shotgun while Minion sat behind him in the backseat. In my rearview mirror I could see Minion’s eyes and he could see mine. On the drive back I chose [...]

Revenge on a Psychopath

Revenge, justice, punishment.  These concepts are sometimes used interchangeably when discussing how we might respond to a psychopathic attack.  On the surface, an eye for an eye, may seem equitable and justified.  Beneath the surface, though, there is much more happening and sometimes we are unaware of, or misidentify, the consequences of retribution.

Psychopaths are Opportunists.

Four years ago, when I left the psychopath, I went to talk to his friends and minions.  Many were forthcoming with information.  One of them told me, “Spath said he was really bummed out about being old, fat and bald because he said it was harder to ‘get’ young girls.”  That would be a problem [...]

The Meaning of MacGuffin
