    It sounded like the couple he was speaking about... the man who was perfect for year then broke up with the woman on their anniversary ...was Ted Bundy ..Ted did the exact same thing ..The first time the woman dated him she cut him loose because she thought he was immature had no goals in life ..Then later he reappeared becoming absolutely perfect he became everything this woman wanted in a man ..then Bang he left her life calls no nothing ..Ted figured he got the last laugh ...Some profilers had the opinion the woman was basis for all the victims he had murdered ..hairstyle , looks , education etc. Well Ted was put to death in Florida's electric chair in the late 80s I guess she got the last laugh on him ..🥀

      Smartness is mandatory in a relationship and cyberhackinggenius helped cloned my spouse device and I got access to all his dealings both on phone and social media without touching his devices. All I did was share my husband’s phone number with cyberhackinggenius and I was able to read both his new and deleted messages from a cloned device without having to touch his phone. I read all his Whatsapp, Facebook,Instagram and Snapchat messages Including the deleted text messages and iMessages. You can contact him via Gmail (cyberhackinggenius) or speak to him directly on his phone and WhatsApp : +19256795146 and don’t forget to thank me later

    What about when you really aren’t responsible, but people want you to be. Like you see the cops light and you may even have a body in your trunk, but you know why and it’s no problem. You know a cop is going to be all, “Like, get out of the car, dude!” Cause cops aren’t going to take into account that it’s your fucking car, and maybe you don’t like being judged every time some cop (who didn’t even know her) thinks you’re doing something unusual.

    this is the worst interviewer i have ever seen, he is fucking retard. the doctor is well educated and spoken and she brings up valid points. the interviewer doesn't know what the fuck he's doing. he should get punched out for acting and waving his head the way he does. he's like those waving whacky inflatable balloon things people put up to advertise a tire sale or discount furniture. and why does the camera man turn the camera away from the doctor to get the retarded interviewers stupid face and stupid reaction. this video made me so mad. i hope the interviewer dies or commits suicide. he's a fucking clown.

    Is it also true that Psychopaths lack emotional control and Sociopaths control theirs? I've read that Sociopaths can manipulate a Psychopath's emotional outbursts and love the ability to control that (parasite/host relationship).

    I disagree. Look at criminals in prison. Nobody would argue that psychopaths and sociopaths make up the vast majority of personalities within any prison. Psychopaths are grandiose and overly charismatic
    Sociopaths are exactly what the word infers. They have trouble socializing. Psychopaths are chiefly extraverts and sociopaths are chiefly intraverts.

    I dissagree, my dad was a narcissist and psychopath with a wobbly conscience prior but by the time I got born of the many kids he had over his adult life ( also in prior marriage he had more kids) he graduated into a sociopath, he was charming when much younger, I didn't see that, as he was very average, yeh the more I hear the more I dissagree with her, my dad developed into sociopath he evolved into it as he did killings for others in 'peace-time', my dad sought help via a GP but the doctor sent a 'secret fraternaty', instead. He originated from landed gentry she's an idiot, irrespective of your 'class' or background it doesn't dictate that ignorant conclusion. I've watched 'the iceman', the serial killer who killed for organised crime, he reminds me a lot like my dad, my dad exclaimed like another American real life x-soldier doing time, exclaimed on an interview in prison with his gawdy orange prison clothes, "they teach you to kill but they don't unteach you"!! Word for word that's what my dad used to say too! I just pointed at the tv! "Yeh!! My dad used to say that! He was trapped in his own miasma!

    how would you spot the difference between one of this mental illnesses and a random society worthy person who attends night clubs, is a sex addict after college hours, or a poker addict.... drunkard to the acceptable limits... ? think about it, what the psychology society has accomplished since the Darwin's era is to seclude themselves along with their lavish and erotic vices from the rest of the so said illiterate and possibly "narcissistic", "sociopathic", or "psychopathic" barbarian world; for instance even this psychologist might share a small amount of narcissism... and the way she explain things I could easily point out in her displayed psychology through facial trigger points that she is at some point some sort of addict to whatever personal vice, as most doctorates are...

    and with car tickets, who wouldn't want a pardon after being caught on carpool at 8:00 am in the morning trying to make it to their day job and slept late because of their second job and now they have a ticket and can't afford to pay rent, eat, or even worse not have enough to pay their student loan debt...? honesty catcher.... be honest. don't socio- and psycho every term now, unless you end up like some interesting democrat members of congress, or a particular studied secretary of state who paid for a false dossier against her opponent presidential candidate...we have some degrees of paranoic science use in this clip. But here's the catch, be real with yourselves, yes, MedCircle indoctrinators, a sociopath and psychopath can also be the very teacher that is expert at this very subjects exasperatingly self flattering themselves to the point of surpassing the real in depth meaning of the subject itself. We call it priggish, or perhaps moralista in beautiful Latin.
