- Having fragile self-esteem: Called NY media pretending to be someone else to admire and praise Donald Trump

- Appearing as tough-minded or unemotional


Psychopaths observe emotions but have an inability to feel them; instead, they learn how to mimic feelings, so they appear normal. They can be so expert at manipulating others and copying emotions that they may even seem normal to their closest relatives and friends. One core and vital aspect of psychopathic individuals, are their lack of moral restraint, as morals are irrelevant, the whole idea unfathomable to them. Psychopaths can be very charming. They may gain our trust, yet they are incapable of forming actual emotional attachments. The seek the limelight!

Dr. Robert Hare, who authored Without Conscience: The Disturbing World of the Psychopaths Among Us and co-authored Corporate Psychopathy, related a study that demonstrated that the percentage of psychopathology in corporate professionals is four to five times greater than in the general population, and these rank very high on the twenty-point Hare Psychopathy Checklist. Common psychopath traits, edited from the checklist, are:

- Grandiose (exaggeratedly high) estimation of self: boasted about his penis

- Need for stimulation: doesn't like to be alone / thrives on chaos

- Pathological lying: a serial liar

- Juvenile delinquency: hit his 2nd-grade teacher in the face

- Criminal versatility: re Trump Foundation, NYAG - "a shocking pattern of illegality."

- Cunning and manipulativeness: Created a fake university

- Lack of remorse or guilt: No acknowledgment that his administration ignored the crisis in Puerto Rico and that 3000 Americans died on his watch

- Callousness and lack of empathy: putting children and families in internment camps

- Parasitic lifestyle: found ways not to pay contractors

- Poor behavioral controls: threw Skittles at German Chancellor Angela Merkel

- Sexual promiscuity: multiple affairs
