                    There is some truth to that.

                    I have no internal intuitive governor that tells me what is appropriate or not...what will offend someone or not. So I have to actually think about every insult. Is it too much? Can it really offend?

                    So I have a few rules;
                    I don't insult women, no matter how much they joke with me. Not because I'm a gentleman, but because I have no idea how they think..what will upset them. So it's all off limits.

                    I won't trade jabs unless I see evidence that they can take it, and they can give as well as they get. And in public (or in my store) I never insult anyone. And I won't trade jabs ether.

                    Jonathan; It's all just playing. It's fun for me, and fun for them. But I really understand that it isn't for everyone.

                    In fact, now that I think about it, only about half of my male friends do I trade insults with...and never with my female friends.

                    And that's one reason I don't enjoy social situations or gatherings with relatives. I have to consciously think of every word I say.

                      I use to be like this until a few years ago.. but have learned to just not be around people male or female who can't deal with me being a bit of an a##hole .. i had to watch the claude jokes for a few months before i joined in to see what was .. in bounds and out of bounds .. it is so much harder in text on a forum .

                      I get a pass though because i point out that I kind of look like Allan from hangover or Zach Galifianakis ..I use to worry that people might think i was an a hole.. now ..i worry if they don't

                        first, I give that insult a 5 on a scale of 1-10. It's funny, even a little witty. But you are the best..most devastating insulter here. So for this one...only a 5.

                        I have real trouble knowing when someone is a friend or not. I'm very bad at understanding social cues.

                        So, for example...having employees. They always act like I'm one of their favorite people.
                        I have real difficulty knowing how much of that is conditioned behavior, and how much is real.

                        For example, I once decided to start selling a different brand of vacuum cleaner. I had been with the previous company for years. I walked into their main office and greeted several of my friends in the halls. They were completely different people. I was no longer their friend. One guy even called me a traitor. It took me a day or so to figure out that I was their close friend...but only as long as we had the bond of working for the same company. Once I was no longer a member of the "tribe", I was now a competitor..the enemy.

                        To me, we were all still friends, because my feelings about them had nothing to do with the social construct of working for the same company.

                        When I was about 18 years old, I stopped going to our church. And people I thought really liked me, wouldn't talk to me when I ran into them socially. The relationship was entirely based on us going to the same church. I was still young enough that this behavior came as quite a shock to me.

                        30 years ago, I told my mother that I had stopped seeing a woman I had lived with for 7 years. She moved to Florida, (to take care of her elderly parents) and I had a business in Ohio...so it was a warm amicable departure.

                        I told my mom, "Carol and I aren't together anymore". And she said "Good. I never liked her". I said "Mom, you told me a month ago that you loved her like a daughter".

                        The truth is, none of it was true. She just tolerated my girlfriend. And she said she never liked Carol, because she thought that's what I wanted to hear.

                          She just tolerated my girlfriend.
                          Well, she had decades of practice before meeting her. No effort, required.

      Odahh; I think I had this conversation with a member here with slight autism.

      I'm not autistic. I'm a high functioning pro-social psychopath. Or at least leaning that way. There is a Hare Psychopathy test, that I have been given twice (as a much younger man).

      On a scale of 1-40 (40 being pure psychopath), most people score a 4 or 5. Both times I took the test (once with a psychiatrist friend of mine) I got a 22. It isn't the same test you see online.

      I'm not prone to violence, nor do I have anger issues. Impulse control isn't really a problem, but I have no empathy. No feelings of camaraderie, not societal drives. And I have no intuitive understanding of social behaviors.

      It took me decades to intellectually understand what most people know naturally about normal and expected social behavior.

      Anyway. This forum has been through this already with me...until everyone got sick of discussing it.

      I appreciate your insight though.

      About 1% of the general population is more psychopathic than I am and about 20-25% of the CEOs are.

      Asperger syndrome and high level psychopathy show similar traits.

        I was diagnosed with high functioning autism and rapid cycling bi polar disorder at the same time though it was five years earlier that i had gone through test and the person doing the test said the test showed right brain developmental disorder .. i was trying to figure out why i had such a hard time communicating and writing ..but i tested to high in inteligence to get any help or treatment ..

        in any case it is hard for me to be around people for any length of time because mu energy level changes so drastically in short periods of time ..and until i learned to use my pattern recognition to identify behaviours .. it was hard to interact with people..

        i also have several other sub condition that make changes in evironment or weather effect me harder than so called normal people .. so it took a very long to figure out what was going on and how to function best..i am still working out a few thing ..

        in my view if it wasn't for those of us with these condition pushing society forward the last 200 years .. the human race would still be in the same living condition it had been in for nearly 10000 years.. .. you have the artist with bi polar like personalities bushing arts and culture forward.. a huge percent of scientist engineers and physicists are high functioning autistic..or borderline.. and a huge percent of business leader and ceo's are psychopathic or show those tendencies while also being workaholics ..

            I think everyone here can strongly recognize a pattern with you, and that's your male pattern baldness.

  • I love how 40 = pure psychopath.

    Figures we pile on the psycopathy from sum kinda norm ZERO.

    But what if we start out with the 40 an' power up in the direction of the TOTALLY IMPURE PSYCHOPATH?

    Seems to Moi evry point on the scale gotta be same in both cases -- cos math is EXACT.

    20 = 20, any which way.

    But sumhow the two perspectives don't equate so good.

    Start out from ZERO, you got a psycopathy vibe possibly you can control.

    Go this crazy, an' no further!

    Drop down from 40, we all haplessly psychopathic to sum degree.
