In my opinion, based on the way I define Psychopaths and Sociopaths that psychopaths are externally organized, which is to say they appear organized on the outside. While sociopaths are organized on the inside, internally, as in philosophically, mentally, they are prepared, like a militia or doomsday-prepers. The reasoning comes from my theory on the female mind being psychopathic and the male mind being sociopathic. The psychopath, in order to pass the threat filter of the normal individual make appeals to superficial, aesthetic, snap decistions.

Psychopaths appear to be something they are not, while sociopaths try to not attract any attention at all. They do things to make themselves unappealing or uninteresting because they don’t want your attention. Sociopaths are even rude and offputing, they want you to stay in your lane and mind your own business, they don’t want to be your friend. They don’t want to know your stupid opinion.
I am sympathetic to sociopaths (probably because I am one I would guess) and I see them as a force of good. Sociopathic processes are cathartic. People have been trained to look for the sociopath, but they don’t realize that they are blind to the psychopath. That is why I say…
Psychopaths, being female minded, respect the normative judgments of the herd. They do their social climbing in groups of people. They presuppose relationship for the purpose of social climbing. Psychopaths don’t use their own resources, they use everybody else’s resources first.
Tragedy of the commonsFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaThe “tragedy of the commons” is one way of accounting for overexploitation.
The tragedy of the commons is an economics theory by Garrett Hardin, according to which the depletion of a shared resource by individuals, acting independently and rationally according to each one’s self-interest, act contrary to the group’s long-term best interests by depleting the common resource. The concept is often cited in connection with sustainable development, meshing economic growth and environmental protection, as well as in the debate over global warming. “Commons” can include the atmosphere, oceans, rivers, fish stocks, national parks, advertising, and even parking meters. The tragedy of the commons has particular relevance in analyzing behavior in the fields of economics, evolutionary psychology, anthropology, game theory, politics, taxation, and sociology. Some also see the “tragedy” as an example of emergent behavior, the outcome of individual interactions in a complex system.
Likewise their is a tragedy of the commons in regards to availing oneself of strategic behavior. The sociopath is self sustaining because they don’t want to have to depend on other people, while the psychopath is confident in their ability to manipulate other people and climb to the top. They “earn” what they get by being shitty human beings. Psychopaths don’t really create value because they don’t really have problem solving skills. They don’t choose options that create the most value for the most people. They figure out some reason why they are correct or why someone else is wrong and they figure out a way to fine them or to steal their surplus and get away with it. Psychopaths only create win lose scenarios, they are not concerned if they should be doing it they are concerned with whether they can get away with it.
You have to ask yourself, what kind of person would jump through all the hoops of normative public judgments to appear that squeaky clean? and why? People make stupid judgments, stupidly. Malcolm Gladwell called this visual bias the Warren Harding error. He was probably the worst president in history and he was a puppet for a wealthy business tycoon, but he looked soooo presidential.
So why does this happen, Joxua? Because of Neural Myelination and cellular memory and the differences between the strategies of the female mind and the male mind for survival. The female mind is attracted by pretty, shiny, normal looking things that appear happy and harmless. Pretty things have positive survival data for women because their will be a surplus that they can squander on their children. Whereas ugly, tough and rugged things have survival data for men because it means that you will be well protected as you go into the world and battle for survival and a surplus to provide for a wife and your children so that your genes will be passed on.
Above is a picture of a bower bird making a nest to attract a mate. He decorates the nest with blue colored items which are attractive to this type of bird. Again we see the use of superficial, aesthetic, snap decisions to manipulate the (shallow) female mind.
The psychopath is the mother’s favorite. The psychopath is the pretty one that mommy likes. They get the most attention from mommy and mommy protects them from consequences, showers affection on them, gives them money and resources, and even allows the cute baby to manipulate and lie to mommy and get away with it. not being suspicious of the child that appears to have everything in order she doesn’t scrutinize the child and she doesn’t confront the child’s antisocial behavior or their mental issues and diseases. She also protects the child’s delusions of grandeur and instills in it an innate sense of goodness. The child feels that she is good. She feels that everything she does is good. She even feels that she is good when she is doing things that are wrong. When tormenting and harassing her sister she also feels good.
As they repeat this behavior they reify it in themselves, this is why psychopaths can’t reform. They have never had to and they don’t believe they should have to. They are incapable of self scrutiny, self honesty, self discipline, or self control. They feel that their interpretations and judgments of reality are true and good. They can’t tell the difference between their world and the world. Psychopaths are introverted into their emotions. While sociopaths, having to use their own resources, are in relationship with the world and reality. The life experience of a sociopath tells them the one thing about themselves while the experiences the psychopath has tells them something different about themselves. It is normal for the psychopath to get peoples help as they manipulate them to their injury and not feel any remorse for it or take any responsibility.
Reification (also known as concretism, or the fallacy of misplaced concreteness) is a fallacy of ambiguity, when an abstraction (abstract belief or hypothetical construct) is treated as if it were a concrete, real event, or physical entity. In other words, it is the error of treating as a concrete thing something which is not concrete, but merely an idea.
Well, I think that is all for today, I hope I sufficiently melted your face off with my brilliance. Stay tuned for more investigations into psychopathology with the use of my theories and philosopy, good day.
