The Wisdom of Psychopaths

Right off the top, this post is dedicated to Robert Lewis Fuller, Doris Aleda Fuller and their attorney; Daniel Kristof Lak.

"In this engrossing journey into the lives of psychopaths and their infamously crafty behaviors, the renowned psychologist Kevin Dutton reveals that there is a scale of “madness” along which we all sit. Incorporating the latest advances in brain scanning and neuroscience, Dutton demonstrates that the brilliant neurosurgeon who lacks empathy has more in common with a Ted Bundy who kills for pleasure than we may wish to admit, and that a mugger in a dimly lit parking lot may well, in fact, have the same nerveless poise as a titan of industry.

Dutton argues that there are indeed “functional psychopaths” among us—different from their murderous counterparts—who use their detached, unflinching, and charismatic personalities to succeed in mainstream society, and that shockingly, in some fields, the more “psychopathic” people are, the more likely they are to succeed. Dutton deconstructs this often misunderstood diagnosis through bold on-the-ground reporting and original scientific research as he mingles with the criminally insane in a high-security ward...,"

"When you hear the word psychopath what do you think of?

Probably some brutal serial killer who is out of his mind. 


What if I told you that psychopaths can function at extremely high levels and succeed in all levels of society?"

Only a psychopath would abuse, misuse and rob their parents and believe that they are truly justified by their deeds and not feel a shred of guilt but, instead infinite bravado, charm, ruthlessness, fearlessness, focus, coolness under pressure, a lack of conscience and empathy... very high intelligence.
