Re: Can You Call A 9 Year Old A Psychopath?

I think it's just like any other personality disorder. There's a spectrum of behavior and if you're at one extreme (extreme co-dependance) or another (extreme indifference to others / sociopathy), you have a personality disorder. I've met a lot of adults who are successful but borderline psychopaths.

It's an inside joke based on some responses in a thread in the Politics forum.

Not if you kick their ass and chain them up in your basement.

But seriously, I'm sure we have many men on this forum who were disciplined with a belt and/or a very hard hand when they got out of line but are relatively normal (i.e., haven't killed anyone).

Re: Can You Call A 9 Year Old A Psychopath?

That's incredibly scary. I can hardly imagine trying to raise a kid like that. I'd definitely be afraid he or she would one day kill someone.

But hey, listen, you'll have to excuse me. I have a lunch meeting with Cliff Huxtable at the Four Seasons in 20 minutes.

Hmmm. Maybe I should revist my posts more than I do.

Children like this are born with no souls and have no concept of right and wrong.

There are many millions of psychopaths across the globe. Most of them are non-violent.

Re: Can You Call A 9 Year Old A Psychopath?

Wow. I would not know how to handle that. Just dealing with a normal 4-year-old makes me want to tear my hair out sometimes. Maybe some serious medication is in order? Yikes.

You realize what this all means, don't you. Those crazy people who have killed their children because "they had a devil in them" weren't crazy.

We are a Christian nation. So I don't even understand killing a child "with the devil in them" is illegal. Just Obama and his cronies pushing their liberal agenda. Bring back witch trials, I say!

Oh, I thought that this bump would be something like "Update: Killed his parents in their sleep."
