First.What is this?
You guys wanna buy some pot?
*masturbates* since nobody's looking
Wow very interestingI can't wait to read it!!
Projected release in May 2013.
I can hardly wait...
You can pre-order the book on Amazon.
Hey, Mon... what's your take on ME being a chick?
so tha blog will end after publication. In may. I will pack my bags now.
You must REALLY want people to think about you. Other than that, I fail to understand why you would expose your strategies and tactics. Though I plan on reading it, I hope it isn't successful.
People buying it is why it will inevitably be successful. Even if you are buying it to rip on it you still spent money to engage in the criticism. Commenting alone is giving her what she wants. Essentially we are all pawns that bought into the hype that is M.E., and we are the reasons her "success" continues to prosper.
No, SHE is the reason her success prospers. If you don't thinks so, make your own blog and see if you can attract the audience SW has.
Half the audience is in your head Monica (ME).
@Monica, you mean the audience of butthole patrollers that wish to be sociopaths due to lack of self identity, and a desire for power over anything but thier cats? Yes, quite an audience she has rounded up. That said, I'd still eat her ass.

i'll buy it and put it online
I'm gonna buy lots of copies, forge M.E,'s signature, and resell them for twice the money.
Or you can just find out where she lives,kill her, then show up to the book signings (after reading it first so you can front like you know what "you" wrote about) and be her to get the money yourself, as well as the love and fundamental hate that I am sure will follow.Piles the Creeper
Ha Ha!!! I love this idea!
Nice fake amazon reviews...
Psychology Today gives an excerpt of it. And an audiobook too. Is that you in the mp3 M.E?
I read that article in Psychology Today. It was quite remarkable really. She is a very gifted writer.
Just read the Psychology Today piece. Very interesting, Helps to understand the spectrum of the disorder.
This is weird you are my teacher!!!!!!!!
Nice Jesus placement
I work as a psych nurse in a facility that sees all across the diagnostic spectrum....I am almost done reading the authors 302 page love letter to herself....I agree with the opinion the author is clearly a self involved narcissist suffering from narcissistic personality disorder....with some sociopathic traits....maybe brought on by the stress the author feels but given the book and the authors premise of being a sociopath that is purposely left out because of her sense of superiority the author feels....pretty mundane if you ask me...sociopaths are usually cooperative calm clients in inpatient settings since they ate usually trying to figure out 100 ways to manipulate...however they feel they have no mental illness...a narcissist loves everyone talking about them...and will seek out help since most people in their lives encourage them to....author does exhibit pensive regrets to say....a sociopath would not do that
This is what I thought as I read the book too. I've denied having a problem for years, and then recently when it became overwhelmingly apparent that what I do/think is virtually identical to a sociopath I've been trying to find ways to distance myself from the label but I can't seem to do it. I've been in shock since the weekend when I read the book. And you are absolutely correct that sociopaths are cooperative and calm when in the public eye. I've always been like that at the hospital, doctor, the police station (for situations where I was not a suspect), and so on. One wants to be careful to be as helpful as possible. People give you what you want when they think you're being "nice" to them. I'm also not interested in popularity or people talking about me. I'm highly anonymous. I do not own a land line phone. If you knew my name you couldn't find a single thing on the internet about me. And my future place of residence doesn't even have an address (it's on a small island). I suspect that the author is indeed a Narcissist, perhaps even BiPolar, although that seems to be a catch-all diagnosis these days.
^ "the authors 302 page love letter to herself"Well put, apart from the missing apostrophe."ME Thomas" has watched 'Basic Instinct' too may times for his own good.
You mean "her" own good.
After seeing photos of her, I'm no longer sure.
My experience with sociopaths/psychopaths is that they are programmed to play certain games until you are forced to catch on to them. They are only reacting to stimuli, just like you. But they can send your consciousness soaring, if you can escape their traps. The author of this book is doing a great service.
a true sociopath does not care what others think about them. they have no need for approbation or external validation. they are completely self contained. a true sociopath could be the last person alive on Earth, and live a contented life. in fact, they would be happier with everyone else gone. people are messy, with their needs and wants and desires. they are boring and annoying, cloying and clingy. at most, they serve a superficial purpose for sex, to provide services that make life less of an effort. it's a trade off. most people who claim to be sociopaths are just egocentric fools trying to be cool, and make themselves feel important.
BS. Even sociopaths care what people think of them. they have to put across a certain image at a certain time to get certain things. Yea… they care.
I don't care what people "think" of me. Most people are idiots. If I were to care then the opinion of someone lesser than me would become important. Their opinions are shit. As for the character I'm playing at any given time, that's to project what they want to see in order for me to get what I want from them, and they never suspect a thing. People are boring, annoying, clingy, messy, and stupid. I have only three uses for them: some kind of intellectual stimulation they can offer me (these are the people I learn from because I cannot study everything), whatever wealth they possess that I desire to possess myself, because I do like nice things (I have impeccable taste) and sex. Some women really just are an attractive vessel with a few holes to fill, and they'll never be anything else.
Seriously, why would it be cool to be a sociopath? A true sociopath (true to their nature)leaves pain and destruction in their wake. I know because I was raised by one. I could only take so much and left home at 15. She could be the poster child for a "Rageaholic" Now it's 25 years later and she still creates chaos in everyone's life. She doesn't care about anyone but herself, she has NO self-control (evidenced by violent temper tantrums when things don't go her way), never accepts responsibility when her impulsive actions go awry, is the Queen of condescension and ridicule, and a master manipulator. I was much older when I realized what she is all about. There was still this part of me that desperately wanted to have this awesome mother/daughter relationship with her for years, but I've realized it will never happen because she doesn't have motherly feelings toward any of us. Sure she will play the part when she feels it will get her something in return, but the truth is that if any of us died before her, her biggest concern would be that we should look good in our coffin. And that's the truth.
your moms a narcissist, not a sociopath. alot of people seem to make that mistake
And a very low functionnig narcissist at that. Hire a hit man.
Read the book, should have been titled," Kiss Me,I'm a Sociopath".
I'd do more than kiss her. I'm actually interested in her. Although when I am finished with her she'd probably want to kill me, which would only make things more interesting. I wonder how she fucks.
Clearly a narcissist. Her grandiosity trip is to imagine herself to be a sociopath, since she imagines that this would make everyone respect and fear her as well as garnering a few admiration votes for how she "manages" to be so normal and a few "ooh! aah!" votes for being the big bad wolf teaching Sunday School. Grow up. You're a law prof already. Methinks the lady doth protest too much. Better to admit you are a narcissist straight off and then get treatment for your underlying feelings of inadequacy.
I just finished reading the book. All she does is brag about how great she is. It's a bore, tedious, and I guess does exemplify that lack of self-awareness. I think, given the right circumstances, she could be another Jodi Arias, even though she holds herself above the common sociopaths who commit deviant crimes. I saw her on "Dr. Phil," and she was rude and condescending to someone who has his Ph.D in psychology, asking him if he knew much about sociopaths. Really? I think he thought she was a fraud, or at the least, misdiagnosed. I thought reading the book might give me some insight into some of my ex-bosses and students....best option seems to recognize these people and steer clear of them and their toxic behaviors. Wonder why she only got the diagnosis and didn't explore treatment or therapy options...too good for that? And, what's with the donation link? Donation to what? No clear objectives....to educate or support others? You're so successful you need money....for what? Certainly makes motives even more questionable and unscrupulous.
Just saw her on Dr Phil also and she's as fake as fake can be. Only one person she is interested in... herself. Clearly narcissistic and totally bonkers. She's mentally ill alright, not as a sociopath but as a liar, cheat and chronically deviant liar. Amazed Dr Phil even let her on his show.
I found this link : http://abovethelaw.com/2013/05/sources-and-dr-phil-offer-insights-author-of-confessions-of-a-sociopath-who-might-be-this-law-professor/This individual thinks the author of the book might be this woman. I wouldn't be surprised if this is true.
In the epilogue she asks the empaths of the world that she not be uncloseted, ruined, for the sake of all the intimates in her life, particularly the innocent children. Of course there were innocents in the lives of the people she ruined, but, oh well. This certainly adds to the literature on sociopathy, but it yielded no sympathy from me. Gosh, I'm so sorry your life is so tough.
Caring for the innocents… very sociopathic.
That was an invitation to find her. It was quite simple. I hadn't even looked up this forum when I directly went to Texas university law faculty pages (she was assessed by a Psychologist at Texas A & M so my first guess was she resided in the state). The third university I looked at was St Mary's, but unfortunately her photograph had been removed months prior. VERY easy to find.
Love the book, so interesting, thanks for the insights.
A microchip implanted in the brains of sociopaths/psychopaths to make them into human beings with a conscience and all that it entails - empathy, ethics, compassion, love, the actual feeling and experiencing of authentic emotions. I like that idea. More humane than a lobatomy.
Also impossible. The brain structure is different. It would be the same as trying to use a car as a pickup truck.
It helps to have a photographic memory - I don't buy books - that what a library is for - the knowledge is stored in my brain.
Pity you weren't the baby possum!
I have just only begun to read this book. I must say to all of you whom are hateful towards it although there are unpleasant parts you are clearly mistaken. The book is written in plain sight in factual references. The Author is doing us a world of knowledge by letting us glimpse into her world and as a Professor myself and admittedly being a vicim of the games the people play whom are known under all the catagories in the DSM this book gives me a better understanding of what I am dealng with. As they have proven within medical science the traits that you most hate of another person are most often the traits you hate of yourself! Do some research and appreciate the fact that someone and many others are giving us knowledge.
I've begun to read the book, however, I need the tape as going to work is an hour drive and it works better for me. Question: Brilliance??? What is it? Wasting time trying to drown a possum and then not accomplishing the task? Brilliant? I think NOT! Would have been smarter to fish it out and send it on its way!Brilliant...a figment of someones perception. Living in a crime ridden neighborhood. REALLY? I'm finding so many things I didn't know were "brilliant."
Oh, and I'm not directly spending $$$ on the book or tape. Ain't the library GREAT!
The internet is still greater. Why buy when you can download for free? It's faster, no shipping damage, and it's green (no packaging or nasty pollution from shipping).
I reject the all-or-nothing characterization of the sociopath. I have long suffered from sociopathic traits, lying, outrageous manipulation. People around me do not know my true identity. I have a lengthy list of fake accomplishments and awards. I have climbed the professional ranks largely due to phantom history and charisma. I threw my wife out of our home shortly after grad school to live with a woman I met 2 months before on a business trip. Guilt? I have tons of it. Compulsion/spontaneity? Absolutely. I live a relatively normal life in the balance, largely due to fear and guilt of what might become of me if I "go too far". I am on the sociopathic spectrum.
My resume has been a fabrication since I graduated university, not because I lack in achievements but because no one seems to understand what it is I can do. And I've had a wide range of positions over the years, everything from retail to dotcoms to telecommunications to transportation to manufacturing. I can do it all. I can do anything.
I don't suffer from being a sociopath, I do suffer from living among stupid people. The first firm I worked for was telecommunications. They had a six week training program for entry level personnel (how the company worked, policies and procedures, and so on). With my background in Psychology I knew more about teaching and assessing knowledge than the instructor (and she was a teacher). I remember explaining to her how a five point scale is vastly superior to letter grading or even percentage grading (even percentage grading to two decimal places). She was floored. She was also attractive with long dark hair, a few freckles, big brown eyes, a nice figure and simply massive breasts. She left the firm when I discarded her.
Im reading the book out of curiosity/the eerie cover caught my eye/I truely feel sorry sociopaths live their life the way they do I cant imagine not having a conscious:guilt: and no epathy I dont get off on hurting peolpe I care
Hmmm. Reading the book & watching just 2 minutes of you on Dr Phil - completely gives you away. The person you portray yourself to be in the book is just a megalomaniacal dream, as I suspected it may be. You're more an asshole than a sociopath. Watching you on Dr Phil I actually cringed for you. You are only scary in your own mind... everyone else is shaking their head with incredulity that you are able to believe such nonsense about your big old scary self in your head.... How embarrassing. Get some therapy for that effed up childhood of yours & then you'll realise you're only a narcissist with abandonment issues... just like the rest of us.
Are you referring to the author or Dr Phil (who is a narcissistic shit). That people take Dr Phil seriously merely demonstrates just how stupid people are.
anonymous ^^regarding seeing her on dr phill*well said -u hit the nail on the head*she worships only her delusional ego''' how shallow
one sick twisted woman i dont feel empathy towards her what for ! she doesnt deserve it -feel sick to my stomach a worthless empty shell
the book made me sick
M.E. is not a sociopath, M.E. shows obvious signs of narcissistic personality disorder. If this is the case, I certainly hope the want to bear children never comes true, because she's going to fuck them up big time.
I'd like to fuck her big time. Her ass looks like a delightful playground.
i spilled hot coco over my book can annyone tell me how it ends?
she gets unmasked and spends the rest af here days in a nuthouse as a guinea pig(sometimes on display in a glass box for the public don't feed the psychopath)
L0L at the above comment, priceless.
