psychopath by checklist

Posted: June 4, 2011 in Health and wellness

Dr Robert Hare’s p.c.l.r. checklist, psychopathic behaviour defined by checklist:

  1. Glibness / Superficial charm
  2. Grandiose sense of self-worth
  3. Need for stimulation / proneness to boredom
  4. Pathological lying
  5. Cunning / Manipulative
  6. Lack of remorse / guilt
  7. Shallow effect
  8. Callous / Lack of empathy
  9. Parasitic lifestyle
  10. Poor behavioural control
  11. Promiscuous sexual behaviour
  12. Early behavioural problems
  13. Lack of realistic long-term goals
  14. Impulsivity
  15. Irresponsibility
  16. Failure to accept responsibility for own actions
  17. Many short term marital relations
  18. Juvenile delinquency
  19. Revocation of conditional release
  20. Criminal versatility.

It dawned on me that many successful friends of mine fit most of these categories, then a TV documentary reassured me by saying that this list applies to most of the Captains of Industry and the Bankers who recently tore up the worlds stability ! It seems to be success requires a certain measure of psychopathic insanity ?
