    Defense Against the Psychopath

    This is an empowering 37 minute video divided into 4 sections. An outline is provided below with time stamp. It provides knowledge and tools on how to prevent psychopaths from surreptitiously controlling your life.

    The narrator explains that there are two choices in dealing with them: attack or evade. In attack, you need to be in a power position with support to back you. With evasion, avoid them if possible. It's best to remember that they can't be saved. In fact, empathy and pity would only enrage them.

    Also, the psychopathic STALKER .. and the danger such poses to the one's being stalked, family, and society which potentially allows a hidden psychopath to abuse/harm others by not realizing the seriousness of the danger.

    The bastards, they thought of everything, even making sure the next generations become more narcissistic (leading to psychopathy) than ever

    Quote Analysis of some 14,000 college student surveys over the last three decades finds that self-reported levels of empathy for others have decreased. Steve Mirsky reports


    As you get jostled in the daily rough and tumble, does it feel like other people care less about how rough you have it and how much you’re getting tumbled? Well, your suspicion may have some data to back it up. Because according to an article in Scientific American Mind magazine, analysis of surveys of college kids reveals that self-reported empathy has been dropping for the last 30 years. And empathy really took a nosedive in the last 10 years. [Jamil Zaki, "What, Me Care?"]

    Nearly 14,000 student questionnaires that were completed in the last three decades were used for the study. And 75 percent of those surveyed today rated themselves as being less empathic than what was the average score 30 years ago.

    One possible explanation is social isolation—we tend to do more things on our own and engage in fewer group activities than we used to. Another possible cause is a decrease in reading fiction for pleasure. Studies have found that the number of stories preschoolers read correlates with their ability to understand other people’s emotional states. The good news is that if empathy can go down, it can also go back up. You feel me?

    —Steve Mirsky
    https://www.scientificamerican.com/p...over-10-12-28/
    Quote As discussed previously, narcissism, which is negatively correlated with empathy, has been rising in American college students over a similar time period (Twenge et al., 2008).

    Behaviors and attitudes have also shifted in a direction that may be consistent with declines in empathy.

    For example, in a 2006 survey, 81% of 18- to 25-year-olds said that getting rich was among their generation’s most important goals; 64% named it as the most important goal of all. In contrast, only 30% chose helping others who need help (Pew Research Center, 2007).

    Indeed, critics of the current generation of young adults have given them a variety of derogatory nicknames, ranging from “Generation Me” (Twenge, 2006) to the “Look At Me” generation (Mallan, 2009).

    Their overall message has been consistent: Young adults today compose one of the most self-concerned, competitive, confident, and individualistic cohorts in recent history.

    Quote Empathy: College students don't have as much as they used to
    May 27, 2010

    ANN ARBOR, Mich.—Today's college students are not as empathetic as college students of the 1980s and '90s, a University of Michigan study shows.

    The study, presented in Boston at the annual meeting of the Association for Psychological Science, analyzes data on empathy among almost 14,000 college students over the last 30 years.

    "We found the biggest drop in empathy after the year 2000," said Sara Konrath, a researcher at the U-M Institute for Social Research. "College kids today are about 40 percent lower in empathy than their counterparts of 20 or 30 years ago, as measured by standard tests of this personality trait."

    Konrath conducted the meta-analysis, combining the results of 72 different studies of American college students conducted between 1979 and 2009, with U-M graduate student Edward O'Brien and undergraduate student Courtney Hsing.

    Compared to college students of the late 1970s, the study found, college students today are less likely to agree with statements such as "I sometimes try to understand my friends better by imagining how things look from their perspective" and "I often have tender, concerned feelings for people less fortunate than me."

    In a related but separate analysis, Konrath found that nationally representative samples of Americans see changes in other people's kindness and helpfulness over a similar time period.

    Sam Vaknin is the same person in Flash’s post which includes a video called "Shocking full documentary - narcissism / narcissistic personality disorder". I transcribed it beginning @ 38:58.

    onawah, thanks for the YouTube site. I've listened to three already and I'm downloading others. It's great to have this information available to the public. It'll save years of emotional angst.

    This is actually not Sam Vaknin's youtube page, but it looks like it has all the talks about narcissism on it from Sam Vaknin. (For the sake of clarity.)

    Weird but very amusing conversation with self-diagnosed narcissist Sam Vaknin and his wife Lidija

    I actually kind of like Sam in this video. You can see that he has a good sense of humor about himself.
    In most of his other videos he is so deadly serious it is almost like watching someone hang himself.
    And it was pretty incomprehensible to me (and I'm sure to others) how his wife could have tolerated being married to him.
    But I can see that they probably have a certain amount of fun with each other.
    Perhaps there is hope for narcissists and their empathic supply victims! (Or not...)

    Sam Vaknin is interviewed and describes his journey of self-discovery as a narcissist and educator in a field which has only recently been explored, and much of the current information about narcissism, apparently, can be attributed to him. Fascinating!


    update: Though this is off-topic, I feel compelled to insert into at least one of these threads about narcissism some information about what amazing potential human beings have, even if we are dysfunctional. I do not accept the premise that narcassism cannot be healed, just that we don't know enough yet about how it can and no doubt has been accomplished. And the proof is just to what great lengths the elite have to go in their attempts to control the rest of us.

    Sooo interesting. He says literally that he is not human. Which I believe is also the case lf the 1% Cabal Elite.

    The trait: lack of heart, imitation of human traits, traits they do not own. Their creativity must consequently be rather limited. We, in facts, are much stronger. We have to recognise it and take our rightful power back

    A warning from Narcissim expert (and self-admitted Narcissist) Sam Vaknin (and he should know...)
    Though I think he sees only a small part of the big picture, his unique perspective is useful and can be helpful in understanding one aspect of the transformation that humanity is currently undergoing.
    "Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand."
    ...Daniel 12:10 Bible, King James version
