As I warned Anonymous Conservative when ebola was in the news, r-types love to get in touch during times of epidemic and express a sudden chummy desire to “catch up”. Narcissistic people are spiteful, so I’d heavily recommend avoiding contact with people you haven’t seen in a while.
They enjoy the thrill of power at weakening someone’s body.
Like sociopaths talk people into suicide, it’s legal murder.
Chris Reiber, and her colleagues (2010) found evidence for an increased social drive in young adults who have the flu during the asymptomatic early stages of the illness. In short, it looks like people who have the flu but who don’t yet know it are more likely to seek out social opportunities (such as attending parties) compared with others who are without the flu virus in their system. Think about that.
People with low disgust e.g. sluts in general, especially gay guys are also a risk and do exhibit this oddity of r-psychology.
In light of all this, it may be worth considering if the coronavirus, like the common flu, may actually have some proximate mechanisms by which it increases human sociality in an evolved (and obviously unconscious) effort to facilitate its own replication. Remember, from a Darwinian perspective, this is how natural selection rolls.
Why unconscious? Narcissists hate normal, happy people. Add healthy to that list when they’re not.
Pandemics tend to wipe out the sluts of both sexes e.g. plague in Florence because they’re happy vectors of it but their microbiome is already overwhelmed with disease so they can’t fend it off as well as normal hosts.
