John Wilkes Booth

“Many people assume horrific crimes indicate the perpetrator has a disturbed, even deranged, personality,” says Dr. Kent Kiehl, a psychologist at the University of Mexico and one of the foremost experts on psychopathy.

As far as horrific crimes go, one of the most famous is the killing of President Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth. So, was Booth a psychopath?

In his new book , The Psychopath Whisperer, Kiehl applied the Hare Psychopathy Checklist-Revised (PCL-R) to historical information about Booth. The result may surprise you.

Sociopaths, pain and the Primal Scream

| July 21, 2014 | 10 Comments

The_Primal_Scream_sizedThe Primal Scream — I remember this book being all the rage when it was published in 1970, even though at the time I had just started high school. Everyone was talking about the book, by Arthur Janov, and the therapy he developed, called primal therapy.

For me, that was the end of it. I never read the book. I never heard anything more about Arthur Janov. I haven’t thought about Primal Scream or primal therapy in more than 40 years, until a few weeks ago, when a Lovefraud reader brought it up.

Surgeon lies about removing brain tumor

| July 18, 2014 | 0 Comments

In September of 2008, at the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary in Scotland, Dr. Emmanuel Kingsley Labram assured his patient and her husband that he removed all of the 1-inch tumor she had in her brain. He lied. He only removed four tiny fragments. Labram covered up his actions for two years by falsifying records.

In 2010 the patient sought another opinion and the truth was discovered. Unfortunately by then the tumor was inoperable.

A fitness to practice panel found Labram guilty of serious misconduct. Labram’s name will be erased from the General Medical Council’s register of doctors, subject to his legal right of appeal, although the panel decided to impose an immediate order of suspension so he can’t work during that time.

Why I wrote ‘Him’

HIM coverBy Cecilia Scott

Sometimes a love affair with a man can be so bewildering you become lost. This was my experience with my sociopath. He had all the traits of a man with this personality disorder — he was charming, handsome, successful and elusive. He promised to “move me closer to him” and “to support me so I could write full time.” He’d tell me about the trips he wanted to take with me and would reassure me that we’d still know each other twenty years from now.

3 Signs You Should Stop Hurting the Sociopath in Your Life

| July 17, 2014 | 14 Comments

So you’re wondering if you’re with someone who has a character disorder? Maybe a narcissist? Or a sociopath? If you are, you might often be accused of hurting that poor person. Here are three things you might be blamed for, otherwise known as red flags:

1. A person with a character disorder is not responsible for his or her life. You are. And if you don’t step up to the plate with a full wallet, lots of energy, and a constant smile, then you’re going to hear about it. About how mean you are. Uncaring. Unloving. Unwilling. Even if you’ve been stepping up to the plate with all of the above for years and are simply worn out by your partner’s inability to invest alongside you. Even when you’re fixing their problems or building their dreams.

False claims of valor may have kept former marine out of jail

Former Marine Charles Allen Chavous

Charles Allen Chavous

On February 3, 1975, men entered the Augusta, Georgia, home of Bronzi Leon Peppers.  During a struggle, Peppers was shot dead, but no one was charged. The case went cold.

In 2009, new information came to light — the men involved were Tony Ouzts, Mark Hill, William Coffey III and Charles Allen Chavous, a former Marine. In 2010 three of the four men were indicted. Ouzts, the alleged trigger man, died in a car accident in 2000. Hill and Coffeey got jail time.

Charles Chavous walked away free.

The massive costs of sociopaths to society

| July 14, 2014 | 13 Comments

Man Behind BarsMy local newspaper is the Press of Atlantic City. It’s a small-town newspaper covering the Atlantic City, New Jersey area. It’s not the New York Daily News, the Daily Mail or another British tabloid. Yet as I read the paper one day last week, I was shocked to see one story after another that seemed to illustrate sociopathic behavior.

I shouldn’t have been surprised. In my opinion, when adults freely commit crime, aggression, fraud, exploitation, violence, bullying, retaliation or pathological lying, they likely have sociopathic traits.
