She gave me psychopathy’s family jewels. That psychopaths had self knowledge and a group identity. 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 and a manager (this manager was a male lover I believe of the blackmailing psychopathic Don Juan/Dress Grey rapist whom they were seeking to protect). 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.
