Shemaca Rollins Instructor M. Leggs ENGL 1415, Section 9 26th March 2012 “Predatory Sociopath” It may be hard to identify a “Predatory Sociopath” because there are many different kinds. A “Predatory Sociopath” is someone who is unstable and thrives on emotional behavior. A person who will stalk someone and that has no caring emotions or empathy for others. Someone who has an antisocial personality, and who will pretends to be someone else to destroys other for his or her own satisfaction. These types of people are incapable of telling the truth and they lack sane human emotion’s .Ted Bundy is a good example of a “Predatory Sociopath”, he was a handsome and charming man
It takes a true person to look past the horror and terror of the monster Grendel. This shows that our society is quick to judge things that they are unfamiliar with. Grendel is a horrifying monster, but acts like this because that is where he comes from. He receives no love and attention from the human society in which he wants to be a part of, so his actions are taken out on that, depicting him as a savage beast. If our society wasn’t so quick to judge from the outside appearance, maybe they would see a lost, lonely creature, just craving and searching for a way to fit
Psychopaths are filled with emotion pain, loneliness, violence and social isolation. The emotional pain that psychopaths have may precede their violent criminal acts. Psychopaths like Andrea Yates think that the world is against them. Psychopaths like Andrea Yates also believe that they deserve special privileges or rights to help satisfy their desires. Andrea Yates had a couple different behaviors and beliefs that contributed to her being known as a psychopath.
A psychopath is classified as someone who lacks empathy and a conscience. They also tend to have the characteristics of fearlessness, ruthlessness, mental charm, persuasiveness, high intelligence level, and lack of remorse or shame. Amy Crawford even stated that, “Any situation where you’ve a got a power structure, a hierarchy, the ability to manipulate or wield control over people, you get psychopaths doing very well.” Psychopaths will do anything in their will to achieve their goals while disregarding the emotions of others. These types of psychopaths in society become successful policemen, surgeons, and lawyers. They are successful in their professions because or their fearless qualities and are able to work under pressure without being stressed or emotionally affected.
Psychopathy: Diagnosis, Theory, and Treatment Jama R. Young College of Saint Mary Psychopathy: Diagnosis, Theory, and Treatment What is a Psychopath? Psychopathy is a disorder, which is defined and “characterized in part by a diminished capacity for remorse and poor behavioral controls” (Blair, 2003, p. 5). Defining psychopathy gives shape to meaning behind the mental illness, but what does this mean? Those with the disorder are “ruthless social predators” (Cavadino, 1998, p .5). Persistently irresponsible, they are impulsive violators of what are considered social norms.
It has received more attention and has been studied more than any other personality disorder. This disorder is characterized by a pattern of disregarding and violating others' rights and safety Common symptoms of antisocial personality disorder are: Defiant: People with antisocial personality disorder do not feel it necessary to live by the norms and laws for behavior dictated by society. They regularly perform illegal acts that are grounds for arrest. Lack of remorse and empathy: Individuals with this disorder have no feelings of remorse for those whom they hurt. In fact, they may blame the victim for making them act in the harmful manner.
Psychopathy is commonly characterised by a set of interpersonal (i.e., egocentricity, lovelessness, impersonal sexuality, superficial charm); emotional characteristics (i.e., poverty of affect, lack of nervousness, guiltlessness); and in addition to disinhibited or antisocial behaviour (i.e., unreliability, insufficient motivation for the costs associated with the behaviour), (Fowles & Dindo, 2010). Psychopaths are thought to inflict great suffering on their targets of their exploitation and also cause great cost to society as a whole. Psychopathy may be understood as a cluster of personality traits that includes remorselessness, callousness, deceitfulness, egocentricity, and failure to form close emotional bonds, low anxiety proneness, superficial charm, and externalization of blame, (Skeem, Monahan, & Mulvey, 2002). Another interesting description of a psychopath made by Hervey Cleckley in 1982 is the “mask of sanity” in which good functioning of the mask is underlined by disturbances. The reason for this paragraph and its extensive list of definitions and descriptions of psychopaths is due to the fact that psychopathy has not yet been agreed upon in the literature, in regards to a definitive
On the other hand, it is dysfunctional to the society as it erodes moral values and breaks connecting social norms. It destroys and destabilizes the society as it creates conflicts that may extend to both communities of the assailant and defendant. Assault impacts negatively on social cohesion and interpersonal relationships (Nisbet, 1974). In conclusion, assault is a dreadful social deviance whose dysfunctional features of society far outweigh the functional. Therefore, in order to create a stable and cohesive society, the deviance needs to be controlled or eliminated by postulating and devising tough consequences for
Bullying: When Might Does Not Make Right "It is the lack of knowledge of, or the unwillingness to recognize, or the deliberate denial of the existence of the serial bully which is the most common reason for an unsatisfactory outcome for both the bully and the victim." * Author Unknown “Bullying” is the general term applied to a pattern of behavior whereby one person with a lot of internal anger, resentment and aggression, and lacking interpersonal skills chooses to displace their aggression onto another person. Constant criticism, nit-picking, exclusion, isolation, teasing etc. with verbal, psychological, and physical violence are all different forms of bullying. Society has taught us to become critical of others in their downfalls.
These may pose a serious to their life (Gordon &Sothern, 2003, p. 114). Anger is also known to limit one’s social relationships. An angry person tends to be either withdrawn or extremely aggressive thus making them be avoided by many people. This tends to make them lonely and bitter. The little good that may result from anger can never measure up to the harm that anger causes.
