The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organize habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute and invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country." - Edward Bernays

Coast To Coast AM - Psychopaths & Personality - September 25, 2013

Author Douglas E. Richards has a master's degree in genetic engineering and was Director of Biotechnology Licensing at Bristol-Myers Squibb. He discussed the latest scientific findings about the nature of psychopaths, as well as studies about happiness, and personality. During his research, Richards was stunned to find out that 1% of the population are considered psychopathic, and such people can be found in many walks of life. A psychopath exhibits a range of specific behaviors and traits-- they are absolutely without conscience or empathy, they're ruthless and cold-blooded, and do not fully experience emotions, he detailed.

Yet, conversely, psychopaths can be incredibly charming, and often are brilliant liars and manipulators. "If they're caught in a lie, it doesn't faze them at all," because they don't have any shame, embarrassment, or self-consciousness, and will just create a bigger lie, he explained. "They can even fool people who study them for a living," are cool as a cucumber under pressure, never take blame for anything, and have the ability to zero in on people's weaknesses, he added. Psychopaths are chillingly sane, while psychotics are out of touch with reality, Richards continued. Brain studies have shown that psychopaths have fewer connections between the ventral medial prefrontal cortex, which is responsible for feelings like empathy and guilt.

Regarding the science of happiness, Richards reported the surprising finding that life circumstances (including financial) only play a small role (10%) in a person's well being, and that genetic predispositions of personality have a much larger effect (50%). The remaining 40% is under a person's control-- behaviors and actions which can influence happiness. Rather than material possessions and wealth, happiness seems to come from effort and challenge, being fully engaged in an activity, and feeling better about oneself from growing and learning, he said.

Lol some of thosee characteristic traits are all me not all but some of them. so the question is does it make me a physicopath? if thats the case almost eveeryone would be one cause everyone has at least one or two of those characteristics. so imo that 1% is inaccurate. i didn't look at video i just read what you put down.

I think the underlying trait of the psychopaths is a lack of empathy. As far as I can tell you feel for people.

I think the underlying trait of the psychopaths is a lack of empathy in all situations. As far as I can tell you feel for people.
