Your Friendly Successful Psychopath

This TED talk is from a reader. It discusses some research about psychopaths and loss aversion (they don't experience it) and suggests some ways that non-psychopaths could learn to be a little more risk seeking themselves.

It also mentions (and this is the first I've heard about this, but does not seem wrong) about how psychopaths have naturally high mindfulness because they are laser focused on whatever task is in front of them.

A third point was regarding how to influence people by doing favors for a person. I'll let you watch the explanation for that one.

    3. Nah, we tell the truth when it benefits us more than a lie.

    4. Sociopaths say whatever they believe will benefit them the most. Usually, that means dishonesty.

  3. Perhaps more than most, persons with aspd choose the goodness they show. Lacking the emotional payback, I think this requires more strength of a kind the non-aspd would label "duty" without being held hostage to it to the point of hypocrisy.

    That's been my experience, watching one in my circle.
