willPOWER

A reader asks:
I've been reading your blog with considerable interest for the past few months. I'm an empath, but I have a strong interest in understanding the sociopath purely because I find the idea of them interesting, so I've read most of the texts I could find. What I would be interested to grasp is the sociopaths response to discipline. Much of what I've read suggests sociopaths typically would avoid pursuits which require impulse control/dedication etc. such as a diet, goal setting, pursuing a degree or working hard generally. It would be great if you can provide some idea of how a sociopathic individual perceives discipline, and delayed gratification. I find it hard to reconcile the idea that sociopaths will do anything to get what they want, with the idea that they are very poor at controlling impulses and dealing with delaying gratification. I ask this question as I'm fairly sure I've encountered a few sociopathic individuals in work settings that have been extremely hard working, disciplined and dedicated to the task.
My response:

Good question. I think your intuition is right, that some sociopaths are clearly able to discipline themselves enough to accomplish longterm goals. I myself always brag about having fully funded my retirement by the time I was 30. I didn't do it as a feat of self control, though, I did it because I love making money and my employment and community has various benefits to incentivize retirement savings that would be silly to not take advantage. The pleasure in retirement savings for me then is to play the game so much better than everyone else is -- and so seemingly effortlessly! In fact that's my main interest/love about money: that so many people want it but can't figure out how to get/keep more of it. It makes any wealth making you do look almost like magic -- very powerful image to project!

So maybe then the real distinction is not that sociopaths are more weak-willed than empaths or vice versa, but that they're both weak-willed in their own unique and predictable ways. Empath weaknesses appear egregious to sociopaths because they seem so obvious and easy to avoid, whereas sociopath weaknesses seem abhorrent to empaths because they find it so shocking that anyone would even consider behaving in that way. It makes perfect sense then that empaths would look weak to sociopaths and sociopaths look like monsters to empaths.

  1. You look like monsters due to evil behaviour not because of goal setting and consequence considering inadequacies.

  3. My impulsive nature is a double edged sword. I stopped doing violent things impulsively to people about five or six years ago. At least I realized it, maybe I didn't quit all the way. It took me a while to be purposeful about what I do, because I just like to fly by the seat of my pants. Once I learned how to properly use my anger it became a gift. By now people don't bring me to the point where I'm out of character because of how impulsively violent I was before.
    That was my main issue as far as impulses are concerned. I'm very vindictive. I can't let it go at even, I have to be ahead.
    Impulsive behaviour also got me here. Because I don't give a shit, I will say anything with whole hearted passion till you are caught in my charisma. The next day I will completly be on the other side.
    Money is easy once you have a goal. I don't think of money. I think of what I want to get and I always get what I want. Some people here think my wife gets beaten and treated badly. In actuality I don't beat her and this month is dedicated to buying the furniture she has her mind set on.
    I made and lost a small fortune before but nothing compared to now. As I get older I have actually started contemplating consequences for my actions, because I have acquired too much to lose. Its made me take measures to start planning on heading towards a more legitimate business.
    I'm no shining example of the law abiding sociopath contributing to society, but I've come a long way. I really am the last man standing. All my friends failed and went to the 9 to fiver, got buried, or got locked up for life.

  4. I have achieved quite a bit in life but I had one piece missing.I was emotionally stupid.
    That is a big freakin piece . It will take down the rest of the pieces,too.
    If you are emotionally stupid you will tear down what you built by your own hands unwillingly and unknowingly .
    By the time you figure it out your life lies before you in a heap of rubbish.
    That is why I am here.Sociopaths are emotionally smart.
    This place is what real life is but hides .
    This place has the group dynamics of a ladies church meeting .
    However, This place has it out in the open.

    I got emotionally stupid cuz I had to believe lies for survival.There are defense mechanisms which kick in when your heart has been broken.
    It really was not "weak" per se as you guys like to say.
    It was survival.

    At any rate SW HAS the pulse of life in it.
    I have already learned two laws.
    One is "If someone shows you who they are,believe them"
    The second is "Once someone messes with you cast him off."

    The third is mine just cuz I am like this.Give someone the benefit of the doubt first.
    Don't cut yourself off from everyone. You can always cast them off if they violate you.There are good people out there ,too,people that are worth being vulnerable with and taking a chance on.

    For the record I just cut my parents off.I will not talk to them.I don't need their money.
    They are dead to me.
    They betrayed me so badly.I want them to die alone .I want them to be rejected like they did to me when I needed them . They turned their back on me and sided with my abusive husband who molested his own son and his son/my son committed suicide.
    Thank you SW <3

  6. Erin, in a completely rational world (where emotions are not allowed to play against your interests) money rules. In that world people don't leave the money on the table and walk away. Learning to manage the finances within the family and not letting go of your inheritance so easily is a thought you should consider.

    I was given that advice some years ago and I did not take it then, clearly suffering from what you call emotional stupidity in the name of pursuing idealistic expectations from life and family.

    I have no regrets that I didn't do it then, but after five years of toughening up I went back and was able to reclaim with the interest.

    I still keep my idealistic core and expectations but won't let the people who fail those expectations take away from the fun in life, will laugh with them, while getting my cut smooth sailing.

    Listening to you strengthen every day, it started to look a lot like you will too.

    You will learn from the masters here how to mask and manipulate, and borrow ideas for making masks that are natural to socios.

    Thank you Baby <3

    My emotions feel at peace to cut them off but it is so hard cuz I have a lot of loyalty to them for things they did like send me through school, take physical care of me and ALSO they did the best they could.
    I know that intellectually but I want to slit their throats.
    I am so angry. I am filled with rage.My son's death took it to the next horrible level of pure rage against the people who would not help me climb out but kept pushing me down.

    It is really ,really hard to have to figure out what to do with them
    I do not need their money.That is not that important in the equation.

    My sanity and how to claim it is the key thing here.
    Not sure what step is the best one for that.

    Thanks for your input Sceli !
    SW is more than guys fighting about who is each others bitch.

  11. Beautifully said Sceil.

    Erin, she is right. It's how you play your resources and your enjoyment in life keeps you strong.

    Discipline is a game especially when the payoff is more strength, prestige or power. Committing to becoming stronger benefits all and makes for a more efficient work and home environment. It is simple math.

  21. Why did you stay with this man if he was abusing you and your son Erin?

    ReplyDelete
  22. It was a legitimate question. It doesn't seem common for a girl to be molested by her mother, but then for that girl to end up with a man who molests his own son (same sex molestation repeated). That just seems extremely rare to me.

    My son told me FIVE years later.It only happened once .When my son told me, I confronted my husband.I got the whole family together.I didn't know what to do.
    Should I report my husband? I got it out in the open and told my son I would do ANYTHING he wanted.
    He didn't know what to do either. Should I send him to jail. He provided for everyone.My son was going to college.
    What was the right thing to do?
    Why did I stay when I was abused myself?

  32. Its not even a rule, folks, its just an axiom.

    There's nothing in it to violate.

    The point is that Erin cannot take Soulful seriously because she is 2-faced, in her opinion. Yes?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Erin, I could not ask about your son because it was far too sad. I'm trying to focus on practicalities and avoiding emotions as best I can, because they truly weaken my spirit.

    But, now that you shared how you gathered the family I see strength and can ask. First of all, what you did was very courageous, surprisingly courageous. What your son did was also very courageous. There is indeed that 5 year magic going on for victims to be able to talk about something very painful to them.

    Now, I am full of questions, but knowing you are on SW feel free to answer only what will not weaken you.

    1. What did your husband say when you confronted him?
    2. Like your son told you, did you tell your dad what happened? How old were you (trying to see how much later than the harassment actually) when you could tell anyone in the family? Did the family have a group meeting like you did with your husband and son?

    Eden played that game with you to prove that it is easy to mask. She could not wait to come out about it. Sometimes seeing a weak woman angers me to a point that I lash out, too. You would too, believe me. That lash out is not necessarily at you but at the sadness of weakness that is shared, Socios won't be like that. They will never drop the mask, they will laugh at any weakness (and not recognize their own, lol).

    Soulful has found a peaceful corner for herself, and she has a lot to teach. Like when she called the socios gladiators. That's the coolest, because it would charm a socio to be called that. First point is to not let a socio hurt, then to fight a socio, but the ultimate is to charm all his cells without falling for any of his tricks.

    The point is there is indeed something to learn from every bird something to be gained from neighborhood socios.

    Oh, I still can't remember which Jack London book had that bird reference to women.

    I will answer in time.Right now I can't
    This is the thing with Soulful.DON"T PUT ME DOWN AND THEN EXPECT TO SPEAK IN TO MY LIFE.
    You lost that chance when you put me down.
    Whoever she is or is not is not my concern.I just do not want or value her feedback.
    If she stays away from me I will have no further words for her.

    What am I gonna do come on as a phoney strong person?
    When I am truly strong THAT will be the real gift for me.
    So,I came on weak cuz I was.Now I am a little stronger so it was good I was real but I do get what you are saying about people wanting to attack weakness.Socio's would do it the most too.
    You are right about that

    ReplyDelete
  38. You don't seem to know that. That SW has no rules. You expect people to treat you according to the regular rules of the outside world, here.

    And FYI... Everyone puts you down here in their own way. Some just make it easier for a retard like you, to see. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Erin is acting out here what she cannot or does not yet know how to do in real life. Dipping toes in the pond of self-worth. Fake it 'til you make it. Lash out at strangers who are merely stand-ins.

    Finesse may come with time.

    But she's probably the most open and honest person here.

    Makes me wonder who else amongst us is willing to admit that they are just acting out. That they are just playing the 'phoney strong person' mask here.

  40. I have a flashback about Medusa's scream on that day when she said let's talk about me and wanted to fuss about the guy she broke up with. This will sound crazy but I was so impressed by that.

    I was never able to do that. Being a good girl in my home meant that I did not complain about anything. In learning that, I actually became the biggest internal customer service department with full of complaints about others. Instead of complaining how they hurt me I go for execution in the form of I am above you, not hurt by you. This is ok for as long as I don't give a damn, but I am not 100% at that I don't give a damn yet. That is where I really want to be, and want to have fun while doing that.

    The only problem is this is a disconnecting type strategy, I seem to close the door to intimacy more and more. Like the things UKan says about his wife, some negative and some positive. I would never put up with those positives. What is his motivation really? That he wants babies? Or, he actually can't sleep well alone? The chances are they sleep in different rooms, they will after the first born if not yet. So, the question is why choose this intimacy? What is the true driver there? Need for codependency? Fear of aging alone?

  46. Just read my note, meant negatives not positives in the last paragraph when I said

  50. "The point is that Erin cannot take Soulful seriously because she is 2-faced, in her opinion. Yes?"

    I don't see that about Soulful. I think she is the most objective person here. I've never seen her lash out at anyone. She is honest in her own graceful way, but doesn't take sides. I think she is playful in her observations, but that's not the same as putting someone down.

  52. :) You are on a lake too? Are you UKan's wife, Erin? Just kidding...

    I'll ask more questions. The way a male socio seems to choose a woman is similar to a president choose a vice-president.

    How would a financially secure female socio choose? I want to define the man I am willing to let really close, and am surely having a very hard time defining the son of a gun.

    Not to suggest any titles at the lady but the only attractive marriage I can think of is what Demi Moore got. A similarly good looking younger man, in love, without much difference in income.

  55. "I think she is the most objective person here."

    Objective: expressing or dealing with facts or conditions as perceived without distortion by personal feelings, prejudices, or interpretations.

    That sounds fair. I don't think women play fair. They want to be right. And logic what's that? They just base what they believe on what makes them feel good or bad.

  69. When another man tells me he thinks I'm fucking up I take what he's says at face value. I don't use my emotions to skew the truth, blame him, and say he only thinks that because he's the one fucking up. Men say what they really mean to each other. You women always think there's something to read between the lines.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Hmmm, words are not pouring out when you asked the question, Aspie. But what I need the most is to focus on what is in MY best interest. Look at every move with that concern. I typically have this sense of what is the right thing to do be more important than me, my family, my country, my tribe. Given that a broader concern will always be in me I will never be able to make a decision harming others, but I want to put what I gain as the top priority from now on as opposed to minimizing regrets (mine or others).

  74. Men have learned they have to lie to women, because women can't stand the truth. They know that all a woman wants, is to be right, and hear what she wants. A man does not have to do that with another man. He knows he can tell the truth, and though this other man might get angry at first, the relationship will not change.

    what I said meant putting the self first is the socio trait I was trying to internalize. I was not referring to the traits you listed (what part of lying, stealing, manipulating, destroying lives and somewhat hateful view of others would be useful toward that end?).

    But even on that list lying and manipulating are strengths, and only evil if harming a third party. I have no interest in harming anyone.

  92. A lack of impulse control is simply the ability to find efficient shortcuts. I laugh when people go on about "hard work". 99% of the time legit hard-work is hardly necessary. There is always an easier way to do something, it may not be the most honorable way, but it's easier and way less tiring.

    The way I see it, impulse control=9-5 shift

    Lack of impulse control=managing who will work 9-5.

    I get people with impulse control to slave for me, putting in overtime, thinking that their sweat is going to advance them. I work at a leisurely pace, and still make more then they ever will.

    Did I mention I could easily fire them when they become useless?

  95. Aspie, I am aware of the negative traits, but I dance around corporate sociopaths, so it is important to learn some of their games.

    For example, cosette 10:22. You can't call him evil if he is the necessary catalyst to bring the group together, create job opportunity to 'nice' folks who just can't come up with their own idea of feeding themselves.

    His glib, lying, manipulating, all that worked for him to get there. It's better if a nonsocio can tool up and get there. The only way to get up there is to be able to compete with/beat the socios who are already settled in some of the positions. Same goes for government. There is need for more hybrids who can play well with socios.

  96. I'm not against women, I'm for them. Again: You are just seeing what you want through emotions. I was just saying what I find amusing about women, when dealing with each other. In my own opinion, I don't believe any of you are capable of being friends with each other. Some are the exception to the rule, only because they won't fake it. They just speak their minds and move on. Those women are the exception because they think more like men.
    I like women like that, but only as a fuck. I'd rather date a typical woman.

    ReplyDelete
  97. I agree they have a lot to teach us, but, imo, only in the sense of understanding how they operate, how they think, their viewpoint etc. It's nothing I look up to, respect or actually want to internalize however.

  98. I think Cosette is a woman. Am I wrong?

    ReplyDelete
  99. anon. Not only are you contradicting yourself but you also sound pretty dumb.

    It's not about seeing with emotion, it's about your logic not making any sense.

  100. I am female for anyone wondering.

    ReplyDelete
  101. More on that.. Most men (well not many women around in this regard, so I will ignore) in good positions are narcissists, not really sociopaths. The corporation itself though is a sociopath (google and watch a documentary on that).

    Socio traits are very handy to beat the narcissists.

  104. Erin. being a pit bull isn't the only path to power. Perhaps I am two faced yet not as dramatically as you are. We all admire your ability to honestly throw yourself to the wolves. And we all see some progress. Personally I have other agents of change I rely on to expose
    my deepest intimacies to and bolster up my weaknesses. This forum is full of tricksters. I trust to be entertained and to be challenged here. Yet there will be a limitation for you if this is your only source of empowerment training.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Here is my point. You women think you need to learn how to take on socio traits to do better for yourself. I think you could learn more from us regular men. Think with logic, and stick to your guns. None of this wishy washy crap you pull.

    ReplyDelete
  106. The other thing is, sociopaths are naturally skilled at what they do. Since practically birth they have had practice within their brain construct. I think learning a few tricks thinking you are going to take them on is unrealistic. Sociopaths don't like taking on Sociopaths. Better to be able to recognize them, understand how they operate, and use your natural strengths and knowledge to avoid them or if necessary, to quietly thwart them imo.

    ReplyDelete
  107. sorry, cosette, having gender confusion this morning... :)


    Aspie, I see that the word internalize came across as too strong. I don't mean 'looking up' by that. But, what is that saying 'to think like a deer you must become a deer,' or something like that.

    I find it necessary to strive to internalize because who I am and what I believe are very firmly defined (unlike that impressionableness, flexibility of a sociopath).

    I want putting me first to become the default, that I want to internalize (and that I want to mask, and keep appearing as how I used to be, thinking of others). It really did not work well for me or the others when I made decisions thinking for the others, putting me second. Having said that, the narcissists who were in my life would not believe that, because those indeed never saw me putting them ahead. But, with the mask now I am getting good at making them feel grandiose.

    Ideally now it will be my life, my choice, my game. in decision making behind the mask of how I used to be, making it appear win-win for all parties, particularly the narcissists. I'll pamper these guys, and laugh it off.

  123. They are showing this Korean guy on CNN who makes chopsticks in the US and then sells to China, making a lot of money. Initially local banks laughed at him, but he managed to find $1 million dollar and a 100 people to get it going.

    And China makes a bridge for California by a Shanghai company (that never made a bridge before) and ships the bridge to the US.

    Chinese make bridges America makes chopsticks, the program says.

  127. Me, the alt tag and title are matching, not so good. You should make the title SW (spelled out) plus a few more words after it but don't repeat the S word in the title like earlier. If you do this you could probably keep your alt the same but some filler in that probably wouldn't hurt as well.

    ReplyDelete
  128. @Erin, perhaps not two-faced. You are two emotional states. Love and hate, both passions of attachment. I am not dissing you as much as a I pointing blind spots. Yet you are just too tied up in your suffering to hear it.

  130. Who needs impulse control? It's beneficial to loose control once in a while. It shocks people, especially if you play the calm and level-headed persona. A little destructiveness really fucks with folks. I don't sit back and think my negative actions through, I just do them mostly. I'd be a little poor bitch still if I had impulse control.

  151. Weird...

    "A lot of people are upset about my offer to Casey Anthony to pose in Hustler Magazine. I can understand being upset by the verdict but it doesn't give anyone the right to dismantle the whole justice system. I've said publicly that I agree with the verdict, but she may very well be complicit in the death her daughter. I know that there is a two-year-old child gone and if any of us could bring her back we would. But we can't.

    The whole Casey Anthony affair is a morbid phenomenon. The only thing I can equate it to is the interest of others who marry people in prison with no chance of conjugal visits or freedom. Richard Ramirez, the famed Night Stalker, received more marriage proposals than any other prisoner in history."

    Interestingly, if I am remembering correctly, he let one would be victim go and even complemented her on her looks for her age when she told him that he must have been treated poorly when younger to do what he was going to do to her.

    You can read stories like that from time to time how psychopaths/sociopaths will spare victims for what seems to be silly or non emotional reasons... like i need to take care of my grandfather or something so can you not burn me to death today. i guess because it was not about how can you do that to me and tears.

  156. Good Eveining Ladies and Gents, or what ever time it is where you live.

    Let me first start off by saying, thank you for allowing me to "troll" your blog (so to speak).

    I have actually been reading this one on and off, along with many others, for two years now. I didn't feel the need to fully participate in this one though, until I saw Erin.

    My purpose here: I am finishing a book about "damaged" women, the circles they go in over the span of their lives, and what it takes for them to break out of those circles.

    I have been on this project for over 5 years now, and it has been pain staking, has required a great deal of patience, and has sent me on a thrilling journey that I will cherish forever.

    In the beginning, I asked women to participate and give me their stories, and let them know what my intentions were. But because they knew it was for a book, they gave me limited access to themselves, and only told their woeful stories through their perceptions of what their abusers did.

    I had to find more cunning ways of getting the information I needed. Ways that are unconventional and wins you few fans! lol
    But let me just say that I do what I do, because that is how devoted I am to this project, and to the women it might help.

    Erin. I emerged from the shadows because of you. I tested your strength, and you fought instead of backing down. That is what I'm looking for. Women who really want to change how they deal with the cards given to them. Thank you for not disappointing, and just know that nothing is ever as it seems. You can never know a persons story, or why they do what they do. It's more important for you to learn about yourself, and what works best for you.
    Do what ever it takes to stay alive, and to learn you worth.

    I've had a lot of fun here, and would like to keep checking in every now and then. The book is on its way to begin the editing process. If any of the women here would like to know more, have questions, or just want to tell their stories, you may e-mail me and I will get back to you when time allows.

    Thanks again,

    E

  160. The positive trait that my wife has that sets her apart from you birds is that she not only understands me fully, but she submits to me. People who submit to me without understanding why, I have no respect for. Just distain.
    That's what hinders you girls. You submitted to the wrong man and now you have built so many walls you are in a prison of bitterness.
    Sleep in seperate rooms? Why do you wish such a foul future upon my wife? I'm sometimes surprised how foul and catty women are towards other women. Especially when they are without a man.
    I'm actually saying this to be real, not a bastard. Some of you birds (in socioworld) harbor so much resentment from your sociopath ex boyfriend that your caution now has turned to paranoia. Down the way that fear will cause actions that will be of detriment to your future relationships. You will be taking all the actions you should have taken against the bastard you used to have, on some poor sop who's trying to give your relationship a good go.
