“Think of [psychopaths] as aliens — it may help you understand them” — Lovefraud

By Donna Anderson, at lovefraud.com:

” . . . here is the most important lesson to learn about sociopaths: You cannot interpret their behavior in the same way you interpret your own behavior.

Sociopaths are fundamentally different from the rest of us. They have a personality disorder, and this disorder reaches to the core of their beings. Here’s what this means:

  1. Sociopaths cannot feel empathetic connections with other people.
  2. Sociopaths do not have the ability to love.
  3. Sociopaths are interested only in power, control and sex.
  4. Sociopaths’ main motivation is to win.
  5. Anything that comes out of a sociopath’s mouth could be a lie.
  6. Sociopaths have no conscience.

You could think of them as aliens. I’m not saying that they literally are aliens (although there are people who believe that). But sociopaths are missing the characteristics, traits and abilities that make us truly human.

For most of us, this realization is a shock to the system. They look just like the rest of us. They appear to be so normal, talented, fun and exciting. They keep proclaiming their love. It’s so hard to believe that they are simply acting. It’s all a charade, a mirage.”  https://lovefraud.com/think-of-sociopaths-as-aliens-it-may-help-you-understand-them/

There is that often quoted saying that ‘to understand another, walk a mile in their shoes.’  But you can’t with psychopaths, their world is that alien.

  1. I can’t help but notice that the explanations of personality disorders and what they entail, are getting much better and easier to understand.

    Obviously, so many are dealing with these types.
