Re: Psychopaths - PCL-R - What did you score?

Doug from Vermont
Self-diagnosing requires alot more than filling out a check-list. It requires one to examine the deeper motives and states of mind when committing acts that would qualify as "psychopathic".

Yes, Hexi, I totally agree with this. So far, Dr. Robert is the only psychologist I know of who avoids a check-list style definition of psychopathy, instead arguing that psychopathy should be defined by one and only one trait: an incapacity for the kind of guilt that most people feel when using or hurting others. I suppose that doesn't qualify as a "motive," but surely as a "state of mind." His version of psychopathy makes good sense to me. Much better than Hare. Much.

Dr. Long thinks all psychopaths are all evil.

Re: Psychopaths - PCL-R - What did you score?

Doctor Long is a fxxking idiot! What kind of doctor is afraid of his patients? What kind of doctor would tell another doctor to ban someone from his website forum because the first doctor didn't like the stuff that person was posting on his forum page?

Re: Psychopaths - PCL-R - What did you score?


I don't even need to look at it to know that it's rubbish and every point is present in almost everyone to a varying degree.


I think you must be mistaken. I took the test and several of the points did not apply to me in the least. Others, only slightly. Perhaps your viewpoint on this is a bit egocentric.
