Kitchen-table psychology or necessary-for-survival psychology — all we have to go on are our own wits

From a comments exchange:

Anonymous:  My personal take is that we should refrain from exposing people’s faces to make a guess on their personality, at least point blank as done here. This is ‘Kitchen’ psychology at best, and may lead to innocent people being blamed for ‘obvious’ personality disorders. In fact I saw a German female ASMRtist being harassed on YT for having this ’empty look’ in her eyes. I don’t know why this is, but since a few years people here in Germany seem to be eager to pick on fellows that don’t appear to be normal. Maybe related to that Jungle Camp series airing now and then, where a bunch of people is isolated in a camp and watched mobbing/harassing each other everyday, allowing publicity to vote on the characters. Please takes this into consideration.

Pathwhisperer:   I understand your point. It is a slippery slope. But here is why I fundamentally disagree with you.

I absolutely do not accept that my blog advances ‘kitchen’ psychology. If the expert psychologists assert that psychopathy is so rare that most people will never meet one, then those experts are either stupid or psychopaths themselves. The DSM documents (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) are evil in intent and written by evil people (psychopathic or otherwise). Among other crimes the DSMs have led to the pharmacological treatment of normal teenagers, affecting their normal brain development. Regarding the DSMs creating the category of anti-social personality disorder while pretending psychopathy doesn’t exist, I can only conclude the Personality Group (without looking up the formal name) is controlled by psychopaths and is acting in their interest. I was once going to do a post on the particular individuals in this group with the goal of ascertaining which were likely psychopaths, but have never gotten around to it.

My point in the previous paragraph is that if the so-called experts have failed us, and they have, then we are on our own. It’s not kitchen psychology, it’s survival psychology. We are dependent on our own wits.

Regarding Paul Horner’s and Skylar DeLeon’s appearances, I stand by what I say. But please note, I have never done a post on ‘psychopathic eyes’, even though noticing them is one of the most powerful tools in recognizing psychopaths (along with noticing unusual arrogance, complete lack of morality, etc.). I have never written that post for multiple reasons: 1) I’ve come to realize that this blog is intended as a negotiation with psychopaths, a ‘why don’t you guys just behave’ endeavor, it is in the interest of that endeavor (practical or impractical) that they feel they can blend in and disappear into the population; 2) a psychopathic friend of mine upon greeting me one day started crying, I thought ‘Oh, oh, a hit’s coming’ (sometime I think they all know each other), why would I want him to feel uncomfortable? (An attempted hit did take place. It involved psychopathic members of the NYPD, I was almost slammed into a barrier on the Jersey Turnpike — this was shortly after a private communication to Philip Eure before he assumed his duties as NYC Inspector General for the NYPD, offering my help in identifying psychopathic individuals in the NYPD. I state the above as a fact, the NYPD can sue me, in fact I wish they would, discovery would give me subpoena powers.)

Every single aspect of Paul Horner screamed psychopathy at me, his eyes, his flat affect voice, his laugh, his postures, etc. In terms of your statement of some Germans seemingly “eager to pick on fellows that don’t appear to be normal.” That is a real danger. We are all taught not to judge books by their cover, but what if sometimes you can? From my undergraduate years studying anthropology, I recall numerous discussions of the relatively high murder rates in hunter and gatherer societies. They routinely killed odd acting/looking people (to protect themselves from psychopaths?). I have no doubt that that fate would have befallen hunter gatherer Paul Horners and Skylar DeLeons.

The populations of the U.S. and western Europe are desperate as the middle class is being destroyed and their world is collapsing. Many bad possibilities may happen.

My greatest psychopathy teacher

She gave me psychopathy’s family jewels — that psychopaths have self knowledge and a group identity (this is assuming that I am correct in my opinion of her being a psychopath).  Even more importantly, that they backed each other up versus the empath world.  And finally, that their self control is actually very difficult, appearing normal is an effort.

I was called into Lehman HR by this SVP, Kyle Maldiner, and a manager (I believed this manager to be a male lover of the blackmailing psychopathic Don Juan/Dress Grey rapist whom they were seeking to protect — in my experience, gays routinely protect pansexual psychopaths).  They stated that my assignment at the firm was being canceled due to my handing out to friends 8-10 cut and paste sheets from Cleckley’s Mask of Sanity and Hare’s Without Conscience.  She kept saying they were sexually inappropriate. ‘But I deleted all sexual behaviors and crimes, that’s why they are cut and pastes, not straight copies,’ I said.  She just repeated the same thing again.  Her superiors wouldn’t look over her shoulder, that’s the corporate chain of command. The truth didn’t matter and there is no appeal or promise of fair play or due process in corporations.  Then when I said, against her protestations that she didn’t need to know, that I was giving them out due to the presence of a psychopathic co-worker (mentioned above), she started screaming, “WE HAVE 150,000 EMPLOYEES, OF COURSE LEHMAN HAS PSYCHOPATHIC EMPLOYEES!!”  Then she immediately and visibly calmed herself down and regained her self composure.

After leaving friends told me of rumors following my exit.  It was practically a novella. Made up out of whole cloth, not even based/exaggerated on/from something real. The only truthful elements were getting my name and a few other co-workers’ names right.  These were co-workers whom I had never interacted with off-premises.  But the novella had all kinds of goings on and involvement of outside players.

She denied any knowledge of the source of these rumors.  But I imagine the source was the Lehman HR department, from my experience with psychopathic HR departments in various Wall St. firms.  Destroying exited co-workers’ reputations is something they all do all the time, this was just more extreme.  At HR conventions, they must sit around bragging about their lies, comparing notes and refining strategies, just as psychopaths and con artists do.

I couldn’t find a lawyer who thought we could trace down the vaguely sourced campaign of lies or win an appreciable amount of money.  I should have filed a John Doe case pro se, at least as a record if I couldn’t build a case.  I settled for sending a truthful accounting to my personal friends and all the co-workers listed in the company address book.

The novella was incredibly detailed.  Perhaps that’s a standard psychopathic character assassination campaign strategy. Normal people probably just can’t imagine that such a detailed account could be a lie.  Of course, this is because they couldn’t imagine doing it themselves.  That’s part of the naive prey response syndrome, people still try to understand psychopaths from their own viewpoint, not understanding that they need to step out of their own world to understand psychopaths’ motives and to recognize them.  Finally, most of us are not only naive prey to psychopaths, but naive prey to evil.

Note the almost identical expression in the two photographs (over the decades).  Many psychopaths, particularly female, chose an acceptable ‘mask of sanity’ and then wear it forever.
