Coachella, Oregon in May, and Hawaii in June

For people who want to meet me, upcoming trips I have planned are Coachella first weekend, Central Oregon in May, and Hawaii in June. Let me know if you'd like to try to schedule a meet up.

Also, a little bit of advance warning, central Europe in August or September probably. I have to be in Southern Germany and Northern Italy, so those two places for sure, but I can try to schedule in other stops.

Thanks!

  5. How about stopping in Finland/Scandinavia as well on the European trip? I'd love to arrange something in Finland but it depends on the time since I'm planning a trip to Asia in August. Let us know when your dates on the Germany and Italy are set!

  8. According to chirping birds sociopaths ENJOY to see others being hurt or mentally harassed. But surely they don´t care all that much? Why cannot the blood-red world of serial killers be separated from the more sterile socio landscape?

  10. The book The Everyday Psychopath by Henrik Day Poulsen is rather unusual. Even "profound" perhaps..

  12. Re M.E.'s Twitter posts: choices emerge from the subconscious. Reasons are applied post facto, usually to convince others of the choice.

    This doesn't mean decisions are irrational. Brains are statistical machines, driving at goals through probability calculations based on learnings of previous experience and our model of understanding the world.

    I would be very surprised if this part of the decision making process were different in sociopaths / psychopaths.

    There are key differences in other parts of the process, however.

    Firstly, the emotional content of the learning process is different. Non psychopaths feel adverse outcomes more than psychopaths and so aversive reactions to particular contexts are more easily learnt. The important question we ask of experience is "why?" What are the correlations? This is the chief and most useful role of our cognitive powers: determining associations, patterns and correlations to understand what precursors lead to what outcomes. Both psychopaths and non psychopaths do this and the better they do it, the more functional they are. This is what gives us our model for operating in the world.

    Secondly, assessment of situations is more emotionally driven in non psychopaths. This means the learnings from the past wave their flags for attention through feelings of jealousy, for example, or anger, or joy. In the past, a similar context led to a bad thing, or a good thing. Or, hang on, I'm not being treated fairly here! Find out the answer to this question! What's really happening?

    Our assessment process can't continue until those feelings have been heard. It literally halts until we properly consider the message our feelings are telling us.

    This doesn't mean we have to act on our feelings. It means we do need to hear them, or we get stuck. Most social problems occur when we get stuck at this stage and take the emotion for a decision. It's really just a message. Healthy people, people with secure attachment styles, are usually pretty good at moving through this stage. Other people tend to have rigid and inflexible patterns of response. I don't know about psychopaths at this stage. I presume the model simply presents itself and the choice is clear, with less processing required. The downside is that sometimes lessons aren't learned or the value placed on lessons is diminished to almost nothing by the lure of reward.

    Whether processing completes fully or is truncated, our rational mind then creates a justification for our choice that we can present to the people around us. Psychopaths certainly do this part of the process too. They are most adept at it.

    The human brain is designed to convince

    2. Maybe once I pay off my apartment. But maybe not because it would take soooooo long to get a degree in a relevant field and I'd go crazy jumping through all the hoops.
