Honestly, I meant to type "ThomasDF" but somehow the name of a different asshole puttered out of my typing fingers. [shrug] I'm getting old and losing track of all the assholes. Apologies for mixing you up with someone even stupider.

Hang on a minute, are you certain? I don't know ThomasDF, so cannot be absolutely sure, but that is a massive claim.
Someone that stupid would need help breathing, much less posting.

Do 7-11 do their own brand alcohol in the States? I know they do in Japan. Not that deano needs any more cheap booze to rot what's left of his brain.

I don't think 7-11 does alcohol brands. The legal issues on state and federal control of alcohol and chain franchise groups makes it very complicated to do so. It's easier to have a captive independent brand.

But Deano is England's pride and joy. You broke him, you bought him.

Aye! A Tortuf sighting would be a grand thing. I should poke him in an extra-Shippular medium. And JimT. And Scot. And Madgeo.

Comparing the relative cognitive power of ThomasDF and deano has one clear objective measure - one is at least smart enough to abide by the rules just enough to avoid being fed to the sharks, and one was not.

I thought you just may have decided to cut the sharks a break. I mean what have they ever done to warrant such a cruel and unusual punishment?

And your reaction suggests that you disagree. You went through all the trouble to look it up, saw that he meets most of the markers, and cling to the unproven aspects. That's kind of idiotic.

Well... at least you've learned how to attribute things others have written. Perhaps as you grow you'll learn to actually understand things other people write. For example, the clear semantic similarity between "mostly" and "not always". Idiot.

quote:

1) Not convicted of a crime - that you know of. Meanwhile, Dr. Robert Hare does a pretty good job of explaining how many high-functioning psychopaths never actually get convicted of crimes. Despite all that, the causality of criminal systems make this marker highly -erm, suspect and subjective.
2) How old was the fuckwit in 2014 when I most recently had dealings with him, as I mentioned above? Idiot.

quote:

This one is only meta-idiotic, so I'll give it to you. Congratulations on having achieved a higher state of idiocy. Your inability to perceive facts suits the modern political era perfectly.

Do you seriously believe that the only way to show a personality disorder is to be convicted of a criminal offence?

I understood that the generally accepted criteria for measuring certain personality disorders agreed that criminal behaviour was NOT necessary for psycopathy to be diagnosed. Eg, someone can score high on the psychopathic scale - disassociation, lack of empathy, inability to 'read' others etc; and yet remain relatively harmless. I suppose that's not to say that there may be a greater potential for harm present.

In fairness, the DSM does specifically list ciminality as a marker for antisocial personality disorder. But it is couched in terms of disregard for normal prosocial boundaries, which are often codified as laws. Like, you know, things a community might refer to as Commandments. For example.

Gosh, now that I spell it out like that to myself, I see how very perceptive I am.

But if it's like most DSM definitions it's "7 of these 10" -- so no single one of them, usually, is sine qua non.

So, there was this study, part of which viewed brain-scans which were anonymous to the viewer. One of the doctors saw a scan who's patterns were indicative of a sociopath. He immediately spoke to his colleagues, urging that the person be notified/found as they could be a danger to others. As it happens, the scan was his. His friends, colleagues and perfectly normal family agreed he fit many of the patterns of a sociopath.
Whilst there is debate as to whether ASPD is a related, but separate, disorder, it does demonstrate that psychology rarely holds absolutes.
For sociopathy, it is though for some that childhood is a determinant of the outcome.

Which is not how diagnosis is done in mental health. The DSM is both a manual which tries to systemize symptoms and characteristics, and it is also a list of billing codes designed to correspond to the ICD (international classification of diseases). Which is why it contains things like PMS, which called "Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder", and . Personality disorder diagnosis requires a lot more care. Hare's psychopathy conception isn't the same as anti-social personality disorder. Psychopathy is empirically derived, and anti-social is clinically derived.

And it is political, with diagnostic thresholds generally lower for everything, except for some diagnoses like PTSD where the pharmaceutical companies have a lot less to gain, and organizations like those which server military veterans have a lot to lose in expenses.
