So yes, we do Intellectualize. If you can’t comprehend things on an emotional level – and I’ll put forward that everybody have their emotional shortcomings in some ways and at some points or others! <– Call that me ‘intellectualizing’ my behavior! – One must comprehend reality however, and that can only be done by using the abilities that we have at our disposal to achieve an understanding of ourselves and our surroundings. Emotional Comprehension is not more ‘Right’ or Correct than is intellectual Understanding.
Appeal to The Left Wing!…
Intellectualizing our behavior is a common human trait, it’s not specific to Psychopaths, except maybe in that we rely a lot more on this technique than empathic people do, who can in fact tend to do the exact opposite.
And this is what In My Understanding often leads to Abuse like the Article here cited duly states as well.
Some scholars decry this diagnosis as a tool of social control which allows the establishment to label and confine troublemakers and society to stash away eccentrics, criminals, and deviants.
What are we to think this is if not a rationalization of a Basically Emotional Response towards Psychopaths?
Or is it perhaps a Practical Way of Getting Rid of a Group in Society that poses a Threat to Others who want the Power for themselves that we otherwise might get some of?
To a Psychopath this, the last, Possibility seems to be the more Obviously Logic, and yet I have chosen to mention this last, when I could have mentioned it first and left the rest out.
I’d like to make a Statement here on my Own Behalf: I am a Diagnosed Psychopath, and yet I am showing several times in this One, Short, Article my Ability to see things from a variety of perspectives AND treat different points in opposing standing on each their own terms.
I’ve heard several times over the last years that Measurements are being taken, research being done, for the purpose of “treating” us out of existence – either by altering our minds after we’re grown old enough to have a Personality and thus show our traits, or while we’re still a Foetus through means of genetic “therapy”.
In Britain they’re discussing at present a new law that will allow authorities to use coercive forceful measures on young Psychopaths BEFORE they have a chance to harm, abuse, cheat, etc..
Do we see where this is going?
When ‘we’ are gone, the next will be those who are shallow and callous enough to pose an occasional ‘lie’ in order to ‘seduce’ someone into hitting a one night stand with them. Where does it end?
You did away with The Devil, the Demons, and with your God. If you do away with us too, it will be not only our end but yours too.
We are, in a sense, you!
