Many have wondered about Donald Trump, who is scheduled to take over the White House next week. A lot of people are embarrassed about the prospect of a Trump presidency, and his tweets have raised concerns when he continues his ways in the White House. Some high-ranking officials and diplomats already are privately worried about whether the next president is actually a sociopath. But how do you know for sure?
To help us out we did some research, and here’s an extract from an article how to spot one. The full article can be found here:
It was published about 4 1/2 years ago. It mentions proven sociopaths like Charles Manson, Jim Jones or Marshall Applewhite. Of course, Mr. Trump was not on the horizon to become president at that time, so we added some notes in the extract which are marked with ‘***” and in bold.
10 signs for spotting a sociopath
#1) Sociopaths are charming. They often appear to be sexy or have a strong sexual attraction. Not all sexy people are sociopaths, obviously, but watch out for over-the-top sexual appetites and weird fetishes. *** Mr. Trump owned part or all of the Miss Universe, Miss USA, and Miss Teen USA beauty pageants. It was reported that he walked into the contestant’s dressing room while they were naked – and he bragged about it that he could do it. Keeps you wondering if that was the reason he got involved in the beauty pageant business to begin with.
#2) Sociopaths are more spontaneous and intense than other people. They tend to do bizarre, sometimes erratic things that most regular people wouldn’t do. They are unbound by normal social contracts. Their behavior often seems irrational or extremely risky. *** We don’t have any specifics about Mr. Trump’s action, but we have seen him talk spontaneously (“You would be in prison”).
#3) Sociopaths are incapable of feeling shame, guilt or remorse. Their brains simply lack the circuitry to process such emotions. This allows them to betray people, threaten people or harm people without giving it a second thought. They pursue any action that serves their own self interest even if it seriously harms others. This is why you will find many very “successful” sociopaths in high levels of government, in any nation. *** We have quite a few examples of Mr. Trump, e.g. not paying contractors for work they’ve done, offending ordinary people, reporters, journalists, breastfeeding mothers etc.
#4) Sociopaths invent outrageous lies about their experiences. They wildly exaggerate things to the point of absurdity, but when they describe it to you in a storytelling format, for some reason it sounds believable at the time. *** Yes, Mr. Trump saw thousands celebrating the fall of the twin towers on 9/11 (in his dream?)
#5) Sociopaths seek to dominate others and “win” at all costs. They hate to lose any argument or fight and will viciously defend their web of lies, even to the point of logical absurdity. *** Talk to Republicans how they feel today. Of course Mr. Trump should have won an award for the Apprentice show (sometimes you cannot win all)
#6) Sociopaths tend to be highly intelligent, but they use their brainpower to deceive others rather than empower them. Their high IQs often makes them dangerous. This is why many of the best-known serial killers who successfully evaded law enforcement were sociopaths. *** It takes skills to run and win the presidency – also to run the businesses as Mr. Trump did, although he ran them into bankruptcies six times.
#7) Sociopaths are incapable of love and are entirely self-serving. They may feign love or compassion in order to get what they want, but they don’t actually FEEL love in the way that you or I do. *** Self-serving – yes. Incapable of love – we don’t know.
#8) Sociopaths speak poetically. They are master wordsmiths, able to deliver a running “stream of consciousness” monologue that is both intriguing and hypnotic. They are expert storytellers and even poets. *** We don’t find anything poetic about Mr. Trump, but of course he can talk – and tweet.
#9) Sociopaths never apologize. They are never wrong. They never feel guilt. They can never apologize. Even if shown proof that they were wrong, they will refuse to apologize and instead go on the attack. *** This is somehow related to #3. One example here: the campaign about Obama’s birth certificate. And to blame others with starting the campaign.
#10) Sociopaths are delusional and literally believe that what they say becomes truth merely because they say it! Charles Manson, the sociopathic murderer, is famous for saying, “I’ve never killed anyone! I don’t need to kill anyone! I THINK it! I have it HERE! (Pointing to his temple.) I don’t need to live in this physical realm…”*** Like building a huge wall along the border with Mexico, reviving the coal mining industry, become the best ever job creator ever existed
