Why psychopaths talk so much

| December 22, 2014 | 0 Comments

Psychopaths tend to dominate conversation. Many of us know this first hand, but now it’s been documented in a scientific paper published last month by the Public Library of Science,

Researchers brought together same-sex college students in groups of three people. None of them knew each other. The students were asked to engage in small talk. The conversations were videotaped, and researchers later analyzed who did all the talking.

It turned out that study participants with higher scores in primary psychopathy, as measured by the Levenson Self-Report Psychopathy Scale (LSRP), spoke more words and controlled the conversation more than people with lower scores.

You can contribute to the research on female psychopaths

Female sociopath colorizedA scientific review published last year summarized the research literature about female psychopaths. But I wonder about the accuracy of the underlying information.

Three researchers from Norway, Rolf Wynn, Marita H. Hoiseth, and Gunn Pettersen, recently published the review. They concluded that when compared to male psychopaths, female psychopaths more often seem to show emotional instability, verbal violence and manipulation of social networks, and less criminal behavior and instrumental violence.

This study, which is quite readable, it explains how the disorder is defined and diagnosed. If you’d like to be familiar with the scientific community’s views of psychopathy, it’s a good overview.

Harold Henthorn is alleged to have killed his wife, Toni.

On a Christian dating website, Sonserae Lees-Calver of California met Harold Henthorn, who is now suspected of murdering two wives. She says, “I think there’s a level of naivety and vulnerability in a lot of women on Christian dating sites,” according to MailOnline.

Luckily, Sonserae listened to her instincts and ended her involvement with Henthorn. She believes she “dodged a bullet.”

I married someone I met online after a relatively short courtship that I and friends/family felt was sufficient to answer our questions and made us feel secure as conservative evangelical Christians about his intentions and character.

Once I was married and moved out of the country away from my family and gave up my beloved profession and friends to be with him, I knew immediately something was wrong, but I felt trapped.

The body of Bradley W. Stone, 35, was discovered Tuesday in the woods about a half-mile from his home in Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, which is outside of Philadelphia.

On Monday, Stone killed his ex-wife, Nicole Stone, 35, and five members of her family, authorities say. The killings took place in three separate locations.

Stone and his wife began divorce proceedings in 2009. Although the divorce was finalized, they were still battling over custody of their daughters, ages 8 and 5. The daughters are safe.

This is pretty low

By Ann Stevenson

Joshua Powell and his father were the chief suspects in Susan Cox Powell’s disappearance a few years ago. Josh got sole custody of the couple’s children, then moved them to Washington State. The State then found Josh to be unstable and awarded Susan’s parents custody of the kids. During a “supervised” visit between the children and Josh Powell, Powell hacked the kids up with an ax and blew the house up, killing himself and his two children.

Why you feel so shattered by the sociopath’s betrayal

Human skeleton“How can someone who claims to love me be so cruel?”

“Do you mean he (she) never loved me? It was all a lie?”

“I never knew people like this existed!”

When you first begin to realize that you’ve been involved with a sociopath, you may feel unhinged, like you’ve lost your bearings in the world and you’re drifting.

You’ve had your heart broken before, but no previous relationship compared to this. Even if you’ve managed to get away from this toxic person, you feel lost. Your well-meaning friends and family are urging you to get over it, to put it behind you, but you can’t.

He makes me believe the lies and sucks me into the drama

I am currently in a relationship with a sociopath. I’ve been with him since June 2013. I was with him before. That relationship ended in 2006, leaving me jobless and depressed because he left the relationship abruptly and literally disappeared.

I am a medical professional, so I am the typical target I guess.

He resurfaced last year proclaiming his love for me and how much he missed me — giving three or four reasons, explanations why he left. I kept tabs on him through the years from time to time and found out he was in prison in 2009 for drug charges.

Psychopath Next Door

Not all psychopaths are killers. Some are leaders in business, politics and other areas who act without conscience, have an inordinate need for power, prestige and wealth, and who are charming, manipulative and ruthless.

A show by Canada’s CBC-TV, The Psychopath Next Door, provides a chilling and provacative examination of those in our midst who know right from wrong, but feel entitled to do what they want. The show is available online in Canada, but not in the U.S.
