Online psychopathy advisor/consultant

I am offering my services as an online psychopathy advisor/consultant.

Perhaps the reader is already aware of the high number of morally defective pre-adolescents in the world, but doesn’t recognize them or their strategies in time.  Perhaps the reader is interested in determining which Machiavellians are psychopathic and which aren’t.

Or perhaps the reader is trying to understand events in their own life.

The pricing would work as follows:  $25 for a brief analysis of the situation (that you would send in the initial email).  I would seek to ascertain whether I agree that the situation involved [a] psychopath[s] and/or whether I had anything to offer.  If both were in the affirmative, the submitter could then choose, for an additional $75, to have me analyze the original situation email plus send in two follow up emails for further discussion.  Confidentiality would be assured.

If anyone so desires, I can be reached at pathwhisperer@yahoo.com.  Currently payments would be through Paypal.

Two caveats, first, I would ask that no real names be used — just letters or first names (preferably false), and two, I cannot offer a satisfaction guarantee, I call ’em as I see ’em.

From Neglected Books: Mary Astor, Author – The Incredible Charlie Carewe

The following is a quote from the Neglected Books (http://neglectedbooks.com/?p=241) regarding The Incredible Charlie Carewe:

“[. . . . ]  A year later, Doubleday released her first novel, The Incredible Charlie Carewe.

Cover of Dell paperback reissue of 'The Incredible Charlie Carewe'Although it suffers some of the typical construction problems of a first novel, The Incredible Charlie Carewe is a remarkable work that demonstrates “qualities of depth and reality” equal to those Anderson noted in Astor’s acting. Charlie Carewe is the handsome, charming, charismatic son of a wealthy East Coast Establishment family with impeccable bloodlines. On the surface, it seems as if the sky is the limit–no doors are closed to Charlie Carewe.

Unfortunately, something is a bit, well, odd, about Charlie. At first, there is just a sense that his behavior is a bit hard to explain, but given his class and status, his parents, his sister, the help–everyone writes it off to quirks in his character. But then his sister comes across Charlie in the rocks along the shore of their country estate–bashing a playmate’s head into the rocks:

There was absolutely no savagery in the action, no passion or hatred, no viciousness, He looked up briefly as he saw Virginia and Jeff and called out a smiling “Hi!” and then went back to his task. Firmly, purposefully, as though he were occupied in cracking a coconut. In the seconds before movement came back to the paralyzed observers another wave whispered up to the two boys and receded with pink in its foam.

Charlie’s victim is rushed off to the hospital with permanent brain damage and the Carewe’s social finesse is put to the test as they graciously usher out their guests as if nothing more than an unfortunate accident had taken place. The next morning, as he tucks into his breakfast, he asks chattily, “What’s the news on Roger? Did he die?”

The Carewes can recognize that they have something of a ticking time bomb on their hands, but their upbringing and lack of psychological awareness (the incident above takes place in the early 1920s) leaves them helpless when it comes to dealing with it. They shuttle Charlie through a series of elite prep schools, smoothing over matters when he’s quietly asked to leave due to thefts, attacks on other students, or other indiscretions. For a long time, the only person who seems remotely able to accept that Charlie’s actions are more than a little abnormal is his sister Virginia, and even she is at a loss to explain it:

As usual, she thought, she was making a fuss, putting too much importance on Charlie’s behavior. She should be used to it now. Wearily she thought, at least there was one consistency; in any given situation, Charlie could be counted on to do the wrong thing, the inappropriate thing. Nobody, but nobody, could be more charming when he wanted to be. He had, it seemed, a full command of the social graces, and in any gathering, especially of people who were strangers to him, could attract attention with no effort. People would gravitate toward him, toward the sound of his pleasant voice, his contagious laugh; but always he seemed to want to destroy it….

Schools could expel him, friends were quickly made and quickly lost, his contact with any kind of social life was brief, and none of it seemed to matter to him. Nor did it matter that the cumulative effect was destroying a family.

Astor displays a clinical objectivity in leading us through every step along the way as Charlie spreads havoc into the lives of almost everyone he meets. In each situation, the pattern is the same: glittering, showy success followed by abrupt failure due to some or other act of willful brutality. His forms a company, makes a great splash, achieves fame as a tycoon and philanthropist, and within a couple of years is being escorted out by his nearly bankrupted partners. He makes a show of joining the Navy after Pearl Harbor, then weasels his way out by pretending to be a bed-wetter. He drives his wife to divorce and alcoholism, borrows and loses money from friends, seduces wives and ruins friendships.

Not even the incredibly strong defenses of family fortune and status, though, can withstand the destructive force of Charlie’s will, however, and only an unlucky trip on a staircase keeps Charlie from standing alone in a wasteland of his own fallout. What Charlie is, we can now see in a glance with the benefit of much greater awareness, is, of course, a psychopath. The psychiatrist Hervey Cleckley recognized this, citing Astor’s book in the 1964 edition of his classic work on psychopathology, The Mask of Sanity:

In many respects the most realistic and successful of all portrayals of the psychopath is that presented by Mary Astor in The Incredible Charlie Carewe. The rendition is so effective that even those unfamiliar with the psychopath in actual experience are likely to sense the reality of what is disclosed. The subject is superbly dealt with, and the book constitutes a faithful and arresting study of a puzzling and infinitely complex subject. Charlie Carewe emerges as an exquisite example of the psychopath – the best, I believe, to be found in any work of fiction.

The Incredible Charlie Carewe should be read not only by every psychiatrist but also by every physician. It will hold the attention of all intelligent readers, and I believe it will be of great value in helping the families of psychopaths to gain insight into the nature of the tragic problem with which they are dealing, usually in blindness and confusion.

By this point, anyone reading this review who’s been in a bookstore in the last decade can’t help but think of Bret Easton Ellis’ American Psycho. If asked to sum up the book in a single catchphrase, I would have to say, “Imagine American Psycho written by Louis Auchincloss (or Edith Wharton).” Where Ellis writes to shock, Astor writes to show how people of refinement and elaborate rules of conduct respond when faced with pure irrational violence.

The Incredible Charlie Carewe is a remarkable novel not just in the detail and accuracy of its portrayal of a psychopath but in the “depth and reality” of its portrayal of the society in which this particular psychopath operates. Astor is very much in the territory of Wharton and Auchincloss, and she’s clearly deeply familiar with it. This is a novel that has more than a few parallels with the story of the 20th century as a whole, which is one reason it’s a genuine shame that it vanished after a single Dell paperback release in 1963.”

From the ‘[S]nake-hearted’ era . . . post:

Sadly this was written in the 1950sI’m sure the authors, William March (the novel) and Maxwell Anderson (the play), thought knowledge of psychopathy would spread quickly in the modern age.  As did Hervey Cleckley, Mask of Sanity, and Mary Astor, The Incredible Charlie Carewe, (https://kat.cr/the-incredible-charlie-carewe-mary-astor-mobi-t7972573.html, https://openlibrary.org/books/OL5798604M/The_incredible_Charlie_Carewe), no doubt.  I don’t know what went wrong.  (https://pathwhisperer.info/2014/11/08/this-snake-hearted-era-reginald-taskers-monologue-from-the-bad-seed/)

Why knowledge of psychopathy has not spread throughout society is worthy of an extended discussion.

Psychopaths gone wild jurisprudence, the psychopathic weaponization of the legal system and misuse of the law for political hits, psychopaths walking among us include . . .

So, . . . if I’m waiting in a cashier’s line in a supermarket and I see a shorter line and move to it, does that demonstrate intent to get around the law and is therefore equivalent to felonious line cutting?

The Democratic Party made a gigantic mistake in not making a cause celebré of the political hit, through the legal system, on Alabama Governor Don Siegelman.  All are now fair game of this weaponization of the law (of course this can also include Republicans).

Psychopaths have no interest in justice, what’s legal or even in following the law.  Their only interest is in damaging those they wish to damage.  The law is only a tool for them, if they can get away with it.  Being in permanent arrested development they truly believe reality is simply a thing that is imposed by those in authority, by power.  “[W]hen we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do” — the code of the psychopath, childish and arrogant at the same time.  Now they apply it to the legal system also.

One of the many psychopathic tells (not sufficient as proof, but worthy of being taken into consideration) is the inability to consider matters beyond their simple narcissistic wishes (the adjective, not the condition).  For example, a psychopathic judge or prosecutor can not comprehend the weight of the issues involved in a recusal or discretion decision.  To them it would be a joke, ‘you mean I can go to a back room, get a back rub, pretend I’m having weighty thoughts and then come out and say I’m not recusing myself?  Bwah, ha, ha ha.” In the Siegelman case, Leura Canary and Mark Fuller come to mind (actually I don’t suspect Leura, herself, of being a psychopath, but the morally corrupt often marry psychopaths forming the phenomenon known as an ‘evil couple’ – it should be noted that she did end up recusing herself officially, but the case was apparently still handled out of her office.  Mark Fuller ended up resigning after being arrested for domestic violence, http://www.jdjournal.com/2015/06/01/federal-judge-arrested-for-battering-his-wife-resigns/, http://legalschnauzer.blogspot.nl/2014/09/reporting-accurately-about-corrupt_5.html) .  For background and a timeline of the Siegelman case:  The Raw Story | Timeline: The political prosecution of Don Siegelman.

We had a U.S. Attorney General who claimed “a vast amount of discretion” in enforcing federal laws.  So I guess it was OK, then, to decide banks were simply too big to prosecute (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/03/06/eric-holder-banks-too-big_n_2821741.html), this was merely his entitled discretion.  Now that’s a relief, some might have accused Eric Holder of being the criminal inside-man, or of being the keystone in the edifice of a criminogenic justice system that allowed criminal bankers involved in causing the economic crash of 2008 to walk scot-free (since no criminals were brought to justice which would have persuaded other law breakers to change their behavior and since no systemic changes have been made to the economy, we’re due for another crash right around . . . .), or of being the lynchpin in the machinery running a looters’ economy.  A looters’ economy is a contradiction in terms (like a party boat headed for a falls), but this is beyond a psychopath’s ability to reason.

Now Mayor Bill de Blasio is in the cross hairs.

Mayor de Blasio, you need to hire me.  I believe the intention is to imprison you, just as they have Governor Siegelman.  Also, perhaps you are already aware of the high number of morally defective pre-adolescents in the world, but you don’t recognize them or their strategies in time.  Perhaps you are interested in determining which Machiavellians are psychopathic and which aren’t (all psychopaths are Machiavellians but not all Machiavellians are psychopaths).  I can help on all of this.  Further down the road I might also be useful in recognizing psychopathic prosecutors, judges and possible jurors.  Of course many reporters are also psychopathic, pay attention particularly to the arrogant ones, even/especially the subtly but astronomically arrogant ones (this isn’t a contradiction), NY1’s Pat Kiernan comes to mind as possessing these latter traits.

Bill de Blasio, just as an FYI, I’d like to say that I’m a lifelong Democrat, a pro-union, pro-public education, blue-collar FDR liberal.  It might be of interest that I was once the treasurer of an UWS progressive Democratic club and a state Democratic committeeman.

You and I are basically of the same cohort.  I graduated from Columbia in 1979, but spent a junior term at NYU.  In the 1980s I participated extensively in demonstrations against our involvement in the El Salvador.  I’m actually quite proud of several demonstration actions of mine.

For example, I played an unheralded role in a famous exchange.  When George H.W. Bush said “We tried to kick a little ass last night” after his debate with Geraldine Ferraro in 1984, he was speaking to me through the media (https://www.washingtonpost.com/archive/politics/1984/10/13/bush-boasts-of-kicking-a-little-ass-at-debate/eeb41ba9-3ec1-4f20-961d-79f1ed27099c/).  Shortly before, at the Columbus Day Parade, he and I had had an exchange.  I showed up at the parade with my Mondale signs.  When he went by, I shouted out (and I have a loud voice) “Your boss [Reagan] had his ass kicked in the last debate, Geraldine Ferraro will kick yours, get ready.”  He started pointing at me and laughing.  So I followed, continuing the heckling.  This isn’t really my style, I usually would say what I had to say and then move on, not plague somebody — but he dared me to by the ridicule.  We ended up answering each other back and forth for a couple blocks.  This continued until a security individual in plain clothes grabbed my sign and ripped it up.  The crowd then starting yelling at this individual and then a uniformed cop grabbed me by the shoulders, shaking me back and forth while screaming at me to calm down (all the while I just stood there looking at him calmly) until two other cops grabbed him by the arms and led him away.

Another time that a cop was led away by other cops while threatening me, was during demonstrations before the Iraq War.  Bloomberg had illegally and unconstitutionally prevented the demonstrators from assembling and expressing our grievances.  They had set up numerous blockades to keep the crowds dispersed.  I had four or five successes in breaking these blockades and getting the demonstrators through.  The biggest one was on 2nd or 3rd Ave. which was blocked by some 10 to 12 cops spanning the whole avenue.  I couldn’t engage any of them in conversation let alone persuade them to lessen the blockade (I always talk to cops at demonstrations — normal, quiet voiced conversations).  So I finally said, “OK, we’ll outflank you then.”  They were letting people through on the sidewalks, so I walked downriver from them, stepping into the road, calling for the people of the sidewalks to come out into the street.  We kept getting closer to the line of cops, making their position untenable, crowded on both sides.  The white shirts then called the cops off the line and the crowd burst down the avenue.  One cop, about 6′ 3″ with some 50-60 pounds of muscle on me came over and yelled at me to get out of his sight, before he kicked my ass.  Other cops then grabbed his arms and hauled him away.  I had already shrugged my shoulders and was walking away, I do not engage angry cops.  You can always be arrested for ‘resisting arrest’, it’s a catch-22.

What I’m trying to say Bill, is, I’m here if you want my help.  I’ve got the knowledge and the spirit.  You need the help, I’m sure Don Siegelman thought at first that the legal process would be his friend — it wasn’t.

Of course the legal sphere will be the main arena.  However it needs to be supplemented by psychopathy awareness.  Your defense should be an offense.  Prosecutors, reporters — including editors and publishers (as I’m sure you are aware, this is a PR battle also), witnesses (are they actors in a politically driven setup?), and later possibly, judges and potential jurors need to be studied, their status as possible psychopaths determined.  If so, some should be outed.  In my opinion all prosecutors and judges should be screened for psychopathic brain structures and functioning prior to employment.

There is, obviously, a bigger picture.  They yearn for the corporate ruled globalist world of unfettered greed.  This world is currently targeting the American middle class in an effort to reduce America to third world status (through austerity all middle classes of the world actually) — in the globalist world-to-be the elite doesn’t want to have to bring up the living standards of the world’s masses to the American level, they seek to reduce the American level.  Further, the elite doesn’t want a middle class politically able to stand up to their predations (see Nigeria and the oil industry).  Progressives such as yourself and Don Siegelman cannot be allowed to succeed in defending the American way of life, with the majority being middle class and the masses leading lives of dignity.  This isn’t your individual fight, it’s much bigger.  You and Don have simply been targeted by the tip of the spear.

Psychopaths want a dog eat dog world, with only rabid gigantor dogs left standing in the end.  This is their world, controlled by simple power and foodchain calculations.  It’s a game they can play.  Further, as part of their devastating personality wide arrested development, they aren’t self referential — they can’t enjoy the caviar, without seeing others eating dirt.

Please do not underestimate the battle you are in.

“Sociopaths Count On Getting The Benefit Of The Doubt”

From Lovefraud, O.N. Ward:

Chapter 3:  Sociopath Math

Husband Liar Sociopath for store

I can almost hear the collective cacophony. “Onna! That can’t be the whole story. There has to be something more to it. There are always two sides.”

In an attempt to be fair and to give everyone involved the benefit of the doubt, we tend to discount and dismiss malicious, destructive behavior. Sociopaths count on this. Contrary to the popular saying, there are not always two valid sides to any story (and it would not surprise me if it was a sociopath who first planted this idea in our collective unconscious). Are there two sides to the story of Bernie Madoff’s multi-billion dollar Ponzi scheme? Does the heart-breaking story of Laci Peterson and her unborn son’s 2002 Christmas-time murder at the hands of her philandering husband Scott have two sides? What about the conviction of ex-policeman Drew Peterson for murdering his third wife—are there two sides to that story? (His fourth wife has been missing since 2007.) It is critical to realize that there does not have to be more to the story of Paul and Jenny—not if Paul is a sociopath.

Since we have empathy and a conscience, it is almost impossible for us to imagine that there are people, like Paul, who are devoid of both. Yet, there are—lots of them. To help silence those voices in your head that want to give Paul a legitimate side to the story, I would like to give you a crash course in what I call sociopath math.”  http://www.lovefraud.com/2016/04/28/sociopaths-count-on-you-getting-the-benefit-of-the-doubt/

Available from Amazon:  “Husband, Liar, Sociopath: How He Lied, Why I Fell For It & The Painful Lessons Learned”

A phrase I’ve heard directly from psychopaths (I use the words synonymously):  ‘Go ahead and tell, no one will believe you anyway’.  That’s often true.  It’s called assumed similarity bias/assumed normalcy bias (https://pathwhisperer.info/2015/11/02/assumed-similarity-bias/).

Search today: “how to solve a harassment case with a sociopath and hr”

Well, . . . it ain’t easy.  It depends mostly on whether the company has a hr department run by actual sociopaths/psychopaths.  Sociopaths/psychopaths love being in hr, they get to play puppet master.  If that’s not the case there’s still the question of how to overcome the hr reps’ assumed-similarity/assumed-normalcy bias — facts can overcome a bias or syndrome but will just bounce off an assumed-similarity psychotic (one should keep in mind that that assumed-similarity comes in all flavors:  bias, syndrome, disorder, psychosis — incidentally the same is true for naive prey response syndrome).  See https://pathwhisperer.info/2015/11/02/assumed-similarity-bias/, https://pathwhisperer.info/2011/02/11/a-search-today-i-am-the-target-of-a-sociopathic-bully-what-do-i-do/.

My experience with psychopathic harassment was while working for UBS, which I consider to have a psychopathic history (as essentially Nazi bankers during WWII and the later holocaust gold scandal), psychopaths in management, psychopaths in human resources.  Actually I consider UBS to be psychopathic entity.  I should have left early on.

Psychopathic tadpole drains normy tadpole of life force/juices — biological instraspecies predators, parasites, cheater strategists and sneaker males

Spadefoot normal and cannibal tadpoles

Among spadefoot toads some tadpoles become cannibals while the rest eat algae (http://www.centre.edu/web/news…..storz.html). If there is enough food and the water doesn’t dry up (which is the norm) the normals keep their numbers up and things are more or less in balance. If the ponds dry too quickly then the faster growing cannibals are much more likely to survive to adulthood and reproduce. If the proportion tips in favor of the cannibals they eventually have to turn on themselves and the population crashes. In the rebuild, the normals again come to the fore. Rinse. Repeat.

Dr. Robert Hare describes psychopaths as “intraspecies predators who use charm, manipulation, intimidation and violence to control others and to satisfy their own selfish needs.” They lack conscience, they take what they want and do as they please, without guilt or remorse. “What is missing, in other words, are the very qualities that allow a human being to live in social harmony.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychopathy

Flanged and Flangeless Male Orangutans

Nature's Sneakiest Males, And How They Win Where Alpha Males FailNature's Sneakiest Males, And How They Win Where Alpha Males Fail

“One of the more startling examples of the two types of males is in the Sumatran orangutan. The species is famous for male bimaturism. Some males mature fast, developing their bodies and growing the distinctive folds, or flanges, on the sides of their faces. Other males keep a juvenile look, sometimes for as long as twenty years after becoming sexually mature. These juvenile-looking males can get chased out of a territory by a mature male, but much of the time they’re ignored. Biologists thought that this was a typical sneaker strategy. The unflanged males looked too young to be worth fighting.” http://io9.gizmodo.com/natures-sneakiest-males-and-how-they-win-where-alpha-m-1678927415

Chinook Salmon

Nature's Sneakiest Males, And How They Win Where Alpha Males Fail

Chinook salmon swim up river every year to spawn. Two kinds of males make the trip. Jacks are small, slender fish that sexually mature fast without putting on bulk. Hooknoses mature slowly, spending more time in the ocean feeding and fattening up. The difference between the two is dramatic, as is the difference between their technique. Hooknoses are big and bulky, and can fight off other males, but when it comes down to it, maneuverability is key. Jacks can dart in at a crucial moment, releasing their sperm and fertilizing the eggs the hooknose fought for.”  http://io9.gizmodo.com/natures-sneakiest-males-and-how-they-win-where-alpha-m-1678927415

George Simon, PhD, somehow makes the mistake of thinking psychopaths are the only known intraspecies predator.  This isn’t so, see spadefoot toads above (I’m sure there are others also).  But his understanding of psychopaths is right on:

Psychopaths are the only known intra-species predators.  [. . .] they consider themselves superior creatures compared to common humans.  They have the most malignant form of narcissism.  They know all too well how different they are from the rest of us but don’t consider this a shortcoming.  Rather, they consider themselves more than “special.” They consider themselves distinctly superior to those who possess two characteristics they don’t have:  empathy and conscience.  The way they see it, folks with a heart and with those things the rest of us call “qualms” are an inferior breed, the perfect patsies, and their rightful prey.  http://www.manipulative-people.com/serious-abusers-and-psychologys-failure-to-understand-them/
