    Scary stuff! Donald Trump meets the actual clinical definition of a sociopath and psychopath. The following research information is at least a decade old, way before the emergence of Presidential candidate Trump.

    The Sociopath Next Door

    THE PSYCHOPATH - The Mask of Sanity
    http://www.cassiopaea.com/cassiopaea/psychopath.htm

    For those of you who are seeking understanding of psychopathy, Hervey Cleckley's book The Mask of Sanity, the absolutely essential study of the psychopath who is not necessarily of the criminal type.
    "Likeable," "Charming," "Intelligent," "Alert," "Impressive," "Confidence-inspiring," and "A great success with the ladies": These are the sorts of descriptions repeatedly used by Cleckley in his famous case-studies of psychopaths.
    Psychopaths seem to have in abundance the very traits most desired by normal persons. The untroubled self-confidence of the psychopath seems almost like an impossible dream and is generally what "normal" people seek to acquire when they attend assertiveness training classes. In many instances, the magnetic attraction of the psychopath for members of the opposite sex seems almost supernatural.

    Cleckley's seminal hypothesis concerning the psychopath is that he suffers from a very real mental illness indeed: a profound and incurable affective deficit. If he really feels anything at all, they are emotions of only the shallowest kind. He does bizarre and self-destructive things because consequences that would fill the ordinary man with shame, self-loathing, and embarrassment simply do not affect the psychopath at all. What to others would be a disaster is to him merely a fleeting inconvenience.

    If you are born at the right time, with some access to family fortune, and you have a special talent for whipping up other people's hatred and sense of deprivation, you can arrange to kill large numbers of unsuspecting people. With enough money, you can accomplish this from far away, and you can sit back safely and watch in satisfaction. In fact, terrorism (done from a distance) is the ideal occupation for a person who is possessed of blood lust and no conscience, because if you do it just right, you may be able to make a whole nation jump. And if that is not power, what is?

    I'd say sociopath with some textbook narcissistic personality disorder features. Definitely an inflated fragile ego.

    Although this could apply for many people in positions of great power.

    @Jackson only a sociopath would create a Trump thread in the Stern Forum without using a thread tag! :eek::eek::eek:

    Come on bro, you are better than that.

    Jackson is banned from the Stern Forum for a week, maybe he can contribute more to the Sports forums.

    @Jackson you have had rough go of it lately, let's see if we can find some common ground here.
