  2. 2. Free write—write without picking up your pen or pencil until I say stop. Do not worry about grammar, spelling, or sounding silly. Start with the prompt and go where your mind takes you. Prompt:  Dutton quotes Winston Churchill at the beginning of the first chapter: “Great and Good are seldom the same man.” What do you think this statement means? How does it relate to psychopaths? 8:007:307:006:306:005:305:004:304:003:303:002:302:001:301:00:30:00

  6. 6. Identifying Psychopaths with the Hare Checklist Slides adapted from http://www.wikihow.com/Identify-a-Psychopath
  7. 7. A psychopath will also put on what professionals refer to as a "mask" of sanity that is likeable and pleasant.
  8. 8. Psychopaths will often believe they are smarter or more powerful than they actually are.
  9. 9. Stillness, quiet and reflection are not things embraced by psychopaths. They need constant entertainment and activity.
  10. 10. A psychopath will tell all sorts of lies; little white lies as well as huge stories intended to mislead.
  11. 11. All psychopaths are identified as cunning and able to get people to do things they might not normally do. They can use guilt, force and other methods to manipulate.
  12. 12. An absence of any guilt or remorse is a sign of psychopathy.
  13. 13. Psychopaths demonstrate shallow emotional reactions to deaths, injuries, trauma or other events that would otherwise cause a deeper response.
  14. 14. Psychopaths are callous and have no way of relating to non-psychopaths.
  15. 15. Psychopaths are often parasitic, meaning they live off other people.
  16. 16. The Hare Checklist includes three behavior indicators; poor behavior control, sexual promiscuity and early behavior problems.
  17. 17. Psychopaths have unrealistic goals for the long term. Either there are no goals at all, or they are unattainable and based on the exaggerated sense of one's own accomplishments and abilities.
  18. 18. Both those characteristics are evidence of psychopathy.
  19. 19. A psychopath will never admit to being wrong or owning up to mistakes and errors in judgment.
  20. 20. If there have been many short term marriages, the chances the person is a psychopath increase.
  21. 21. Many psychopaths exhibit delinquent behaviors in their youth.
  22. 22. Psychopaths are able to get away with a lot, and while they might sometimes get caught, the ability to be flexible when committing crimes is an indicator.
  23. 23. Psychopaths are experts at manipulating our emotions and insecurities into causing us to view them as "poor injusticed fellows," thus lowering our sentimental guard and rendering us vulnerables for future exploitation. If this psychologic resource is continually combined with unacceptable and evil actions, this equals to a powerful alert sign about this person's real nature.
  24. 24. Psychopaths are generally prone to belittle, humiliate, mistreat, mock and even attack physically (or kill, in extreme cases) people who normally would bring no benefits to him/her in any way, such as subordinates, physically frail or lower-ranking people, children, elderly people and even animals - especially the latter ones. Remember Arthur Schoepenhauer's famous words: "A person who harms or kills animals cannot be a good person at all."
  25. 25. If we buy Dutton’s argument (that we can find wisdom from psychopaths), how can these traits be reframed as beneficial?
