There really is no such thing as 'Multipual PersonalityDisorder," as when a person exhibits different "personalities"unknown to each other. (See "Deconstructing Sybil," by ? fordetails.) "Sybil," was a concocted fraud by the doctor who wrote the book by the same title. Many criminals have attemptedemploy the fraudalent M.P.D. excuse, like one of the "HillsideStrangelers" from the 1970's, Kenneth B?We do have MANY fragments to our personalities. This is knownas the "acquired self," or ego. The ego is not real, but we believeit is. We believe that our survival depends on it. Until we dispensewith the ego, the "world" will remain exactly as it us.The problem-with the exception of our physical survival-is NOT"out there," it is "in here."
That statement is threw my mind in a loop.
All I can say is, True.
Oh emmie. Is that what this whole sociopath thing has been about? Come here *hug*
I'd agree but also this just made me kindof sad. lol
If one fakes pretending, surely some "effort" is being put into that act to be credible? And if one fakes bicycle-riding by just moving legs round & round in a sofa, is just doing it in the mind a lesser faking act? Surely its just different types of faking? Either one fakes or ones does not, on/off? Case closed, for sure..
Yeah actual effort is being put into the pretending, you can just do it for real and then you dont have to pretend its easier that way isnt that what the quote is saying? not sure.
A socio cannot skip faking by being real: he does not know much about the condition he mimics? So he has to pretend by not doing the thing.
I donno how I do it but i do.... just trusting myself... sticking to what works.. its different with every person.

Jacques looks like Peter Falk, Columbo. Just saying...
What does 'Just saying' at the end of a sentence mean? Does it mean anything? Is it an apology for making an observation? Is it an American thing? Just asking...
It means that it's something obvious, but sometimes it needs to be pointed out.
But what about those of us who can slip on the feelings and thoughts of Love, or Anger or Concern or Coldness with an easy congruence and experience some pleasured interest from a distance? These are tools for us. Perhaps we are kin. Or perhaps 'researchers' understand so little of the possibilities of behaviour and the brain. I really appreciate your blog, M.E.Thank you. .
There's an episode of Judge Judy where these kids make up a fake story to get on TV and a free trip to LA. They get put up in hotels and end up winning $1000. It is the best episode ever. Here is a link:http://www.snotr.com/video/4051/Who_killed_the_cat
Obviously Judge Judy can tell they're lying but she still rules for them lol.
