The similarities are uncanny.

There is truth because there is no truth because there might be truth. WELL. I’m convinced!

Truth – what I believe
No truth – beyond me (solipsism, false*)
Might be truth – appeal to evidence* (perceptual bias)

Floppy beliefs, very difficult. He’s taken men’s ability to rationalize and weaponized it against them. Evidence is objective, beyond the self, you can’t deny things you dislike. Appeal to confirmation bias.*

There is no truth – paradoxical statement.

All attempted replacements to Christianity will fall prey to entropy eventually.

I don’t trust people who promise material deliverance without remorse.

It’s Fight Club rhetoric telling men they’re supposed to act like dogs. Antisocial shit.

Metaphor metaphor metaphor rebellion.

The metaphors are the lube.

When I saw people refer to a JP years ago, I thought they were referring to the satirical “guru”.

(awaken with JP)

This is how a psychopath feels, having no inner self (soul).

They see themselves as normal. There’s no conscience to correct the feeling. The narcissism makes them feel like they’re the true ideal, rather.

I could be wrong.

A lot of psychologists are sociopathic, maybe not the full-blown thing but …traits. They enjoy the control over people’s minds. It’s like CEO positions select for arrogance. You can get them to admit this if you play your cards right.

Psychologists never study themselves.

Think on that.

I’ve been waiting to roll this one out again.

Esteem without erudition is a bad thing.

Technically, esteem is old. However, it relates to respect in society, in the family model, it’s fully social and honour, personal honour based on virtue and the elimination of vice (so no visiting brothels or carousing). If you were a gentle-person, you were HELD “in esteem”. You don’t get to choose it for yourself. It’s like letting lottery players pick the winner. They can try to change the definition but in adults, that’s what esteem still means.

It is not popularity or friendliness. It is moral authority and intellectual adeptness. A genius is esteemed for their brilliance, a priest is esteemed for their sage purity.

Kids are meant to have esteem in their development. Sure, you might be growing new hair in strange places but this is normal.

Matured adults? You’re meant to have a stable identity, yet we still see teenage habits, patterns and thought processes. It’s disgusting.

They’re backwards, hardly immature exactly but regressing.

As in, they’ll become more emotionally unstable with time, as the duties of adulthood overwhelm them and they falsely view these as a burden, while suffering for the childhood potential they refuse to admit is over.

e.g. those intolerable Baby Boomers weren’t as insufferable 20 years ago, and 20 years before that would probably have seemed okay.

It’s called spoiled rotten for a reason, entitlement is a cancer that sinks in early.

Peter Pan was a warning, a child snatcher would take you and kill you, sure, but becoming a Lost Boy would ruin your life and deaden any potential you might’ve had.

It’s no coincidence in the original, Peter murders them, rather than “letting” them grow up.

Your feelings lie. Your feelings can be totally and utterly false, wrong, bad. In fact, if there’s a major problem in your life, your emotions probably reflect this. They test nothing, Byron was a wreck.

If only we had been warned about this.

http://biblehub.com/jeremiah/17-9.htm

Feelings are largely reactions to physical and circumstantial states.

Especially if you claim not to believe in “biological determinism” (nature).

Therapy wouldn’t ever be needed if feelings were always logical, right and pure.

Our society wants people to glow with virtue, while demonstrating none. Kinda like staring at a glass of Vitamin C rich OJ and hoping it’ll displace your cold.

We listen to our “feelings” (usually a cover for the baser instincts and impulses) to smother the conscience.

Beneath that, spirit. I won’t hold my breath on that one.

You will pay eventually.

http://biblehub.com/jeremiah/17-10.htm

Stolen esteem (we used to call that hubris) + Shitty economy forcing adults to behave like children + Vice after Vice after Vice =

If you are a shitty person and you feel it, that’s a sign all is right and just with the world. Your perceptions are completely right, you just don’t like them because you’re a brat.

God forbid Lord Fauntleroy be expected to change or do something mildly unpleasant.

Feeling bad isn’t a bad thing – if it was just deserts. That’s called guilt, remorse, shame and all sorts of other words we need to bring back. Feeling bad can’t be a punishment from God, can it, atheists? It’s funny how the Nurture people are also first to reach for the pills, although we’re all completely the same, which doesn’t stop at the neck. (Fact: depressed people aren’t actually serotonin deficient, that was a lie debunked to sell pills and the theory hasn’t died).

Atheists don’t believe they are soul-less. They must be. Psychopaths, if you look it up, like other “low empathy” defined conditions e.g. Aspergers, don’t believe they have no feelings for others. Why? Faulty perception.

If humans aren’t sacred, our life is worth nothing. We are like ants, our suffering (rape, theft, murder) is nothing to balk at. It’s natural. Nature is violent and cruel, it’s good for the environment. There is no secular morality possible, it’s an oxymoron. Only holy things have rights per se, bequeathed as part of their spiritual power e.g. holy water has the right to baptize, no other water will do. Only humans go to heaven, not dogs (they don’t need to). Morality is an objective structure (it doesn’t differ by individual; their sex, race, whatever else) and it is based on an absolute premise: there can be no good without the real existence of evil. We shun and punish evil and pursue and reward good, all societies of longevity do this or devolve into savagery. The modern amorality considers popularity and the groupthink of “consensus reality” to determine an ever-changing and propaganda-useful right (elite) and wrong (everyone under them). The Pleasure Principle belonging to Freud defined the rapist, not a good man. You were expected to grow out of the Id-only stage as a toddler.*

They need to brainwash you because mind control only works if the entire group falls for it.

A bad person feeling bad is a good thing.

A good person feeling bad is complicated. For example, more depressed countries tend to be multicultural areas, nobody dare study this.

If you want a secular example of the rights point – only a native citizen has a (God-given) right to live in a country. Rights to do are based on facts of nature, what you are. Those do not change.

*Hedonism is the sure sign of a weakened mind, always has been the #1 indicator of psychiatric dysfunction as long as pathologies have been recorded. They have no authority to lecture from.

The retardation of the brain regions involved in impulse control is the physical, undeniable reason for this.
https://www.apa.org/helpcenter/willpower-gratification.pdf
“When presented with tempting stimuli, individuals with low self-control showed brain patterns that differed from those with high self-control. The researchers found that the prefrontal cortex (a region that controls executive functions, such as making choices) was more active in subjects with higher self-control. [DS: normal] And the ventral striatum (a region thought to process desires and rewards) showed boosted activity in those with lower self-control.” [DS: retarded, compensatory over-excitation]

Literally retarded growth.

Meanwhile, in related news, psychiatrists are trying to change the meaning of a personality disorder (the entitlement of narcissism) into a spectrum.

https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/fulfillment-any-age/201802/3-core-facets-narcissism-malignant-adaptive

Technically, even autism isn’t on a spectrum.

If you can tie your shoelaces and use a microwave, you’re really not.

Personality disorders are more binary than that – either you’re empty or you’re not.

They want to loosen the definition for two reasons.

  1. to get Trump impeached (you breached the Goldwater rule).
  2. to misdiagnose on the same scale as autism now the jig is up for dat money.

Divorce risk factors

Diamonds aren’t the problem, it’s the premium pricing that’s the problem.
People are living longer than ever, we need harder rocks.

It’s easy to find cheap, good quality diamonds and arrange a setting for the stone.

Husband/wife is a status.

Status-obsessed materialists (who want to get married but not be married) tend to divorce more because of the narcissism, and overt narcs tend to pair up with covert ones.

Once the money is gone, the spark fizzles out.

The study also found a correlation between marriage age and duration, which Francis wrote are positively related, meaning the older the person was when he or she got married, the longer the marriage was likely to last.

Maturity, waiting for the hormones to settle and personality to crystallize, few societies in history married off someone younger than 21-25, outside times of war (Regency, American Independence) but then only for re-population purposes, knowing it was less than ideal.

Another notable finding was that the larger differences in age and education between husbands and wives were associated with a higher risk of divorce,

Assortative mating wins again.

College IQ men marrying high-school IQ women is dysgenic.

 as was reporting that looks were important in marriage.

Vain men, bad husbands. As soon as she gets a little wrinkle, his “love” dies.

Evil people confuse lust with love. When the lust is spent, they claim to fall “out” of love. There is no falling “out” of true love, you can only be betrayed and detach. The love doesn’t go anywhere.

Marriage will get less expensive when it becomes more common.
As it is, only rich people can afford to marry.

That’s right, classism again.

Social media would make it a little gimmicky.

Abolishing no-fault divorce and making it hard (or impossible) to re-marry after a set N times would make people respect the institution again, nothing less will work.

Really, our era has the term “starter marriage” – nothing else will work.

If society didn’t get rid of rites of passage for both sexes, the social value of over-spending on a wedding would plummet. For women, debutante balls were important. Now the expense is carried over into bridal models.

Psychopath scripts and other scumbag spotting

A highly useful article

https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/brainstorm/201712/5-things-psychopaths-and-narcissists-do-in-conversation

Trying to force intimacy is prior to discovering their missing parts.

Related.

When you only have a hammer…

you’re already semi-Communist.

https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/understanding-the-erotic-code/201712/the-dark-side-outing-men-s-sexual-misdeeds

The authors conclude that the ultimate destination sought by men is “porntopia,” that is, a place of “sheer lust and physical gratification, devoid of courtship, commitment, durable relationships, or mating effort.” On the other hand, they call women’s desired destination “romantopia,” a place of love stories where winning hearts, overcoming obstacles, and getting married reign supreme.

When you only study porn addicts….

Men invented courtly love, so that’s totally off.
There are few poetesses.

There are plenty of masculine female porn addicts (by testosterone).

It is not difficult to see how such information, coupled with the seemingly daily exposure of some men’s unwanted sexual aggression, can lead to the pathologizing of all men as shallow beasts with no control over their impulses. As a sex therapist, however, I have seen the depth of men’s suffering around trying to bridge the gap between their attachment language and their partner’s.

When you only speaking to the suffering….

And it isn’t pathologizing if they have a pathology.
NAMALT, he cries, to cover the obvious error in logic. Even if it’s 99%, that still isn’t good, is it? Never trust a sex therapist, they are some of the worst humans in existence and want to spread the misery.

 Instead, they are hoping that their partner can understand when they use language or actions in the bedroom that may objectify the partner, they are seeking erotic intimacy.

You see, there’s the stupid illogic of saying I didn’t want to kill them, your Honour, only stab them fifty times.
You bring that suffering on yourself.

Assuming women should accommodate men when the sexes are different is absurd.

https://www.psychologytoday.com/articles/201711/the-truth-about-sex-differences?collection=1107987

Men shouldn’t accommodate women either. You negotiate and meet halfway like adults

Objectification is demeaning. It’s demeaning to male models as much as female.
You shouldn’t be demeaning anyone you personally know,it’s a form of emotional abuse, however normalised by perverts. Porn is a fantasy of women you do not know. That is the attraction. The association of objectifying them is porn-learned behaviour.

Intimacy is emotional. It doesn’t require the physical. They need to work on their emotions by speaking to the woman, not griping to another man who will console them that they’re fine – because neither get it. You’re fine, just the way you are – spoken like a true SJW. You see, the more you suffer personally, the more they gain.

Consider the source.

You don’t go to a woman for information on erections, do you?

If a woman relinquished all forms of companionship and emotional support, a man would feel repelled, however ‘good’ the sex. That is essentially what these men are doing. Do not treat your woman like a porn star. You wouldn’t want other men to and she’s the one you’re meant to love best. You can try new things without insulting a woman’s dignity, which is the more common form of virtue when chastity is out the window.

You have half the bargain. You don’t do your half, she’s in the right to walk because you fail as a spouse. If you’re not spouses, you owe nothing. She owes you nothing, because you provide no security, which all women crave. This used to be common sense.

Think back to the 50s. Did men want to think of their wife like a stripper? Did they speak of, treat her in those terms? Let alone the hooker many men think they want. Thanks MTV!

Your downstairs brain will ruin your life.

A woman’s nurturing instinct is killed dead by a man who objectifies her body, because a woman’s most precious resources are inner beauty.

Happy husbands do not objectify their wives, this erodes love over time. This should rest my case but you can’t tell a blind man what he’s missing.

 The least helpful thing one can do is succumb wholly to one’s bias toward a feminine approach to relationship, forcing the man into greater feelings of self-loathing, shame, and suppression of his desires.

Sex therapist encourages fornication.

Is that not unhealthy for the men too?
I mean, impulse control in men is just so 19th Century, and we all know how poor the quality of those average men.

And bias? If it isn’t a choice, or an obligation, how is bias the correct term?

Without balancing both of men and women’s sexual and relational needs, there is a risk of creating even more distance between them.

The Sexual Revolution has only been good for us. We are never/always at war with dissatisfactionBad sex is the cardinal sin. You have too much/too little/bad quality and there’s always, ALWAYS something wrong with yougimme money. I can’t fix the problem though, that’s down to you, and whether you feel you need more development work Mafia style beat downs to your ego, courtesy of the people who know your body better than you and just care too damn much. They only want world peace! A fuck-a-thon orgy for peace!

How about a balance of life and death? Hunger and gluttony? Nude and prude?

A balance between good and evil is not physically possible, and that keeps ‘therapists’ rolling in bucks. Either it’s prosocial or antisocial. What is sleeping around? What is an objectifying (psychopathic) attitude to the pair bonding event of sex?

Ugh, r-vendors.

At least preachers are sincere.

Psychopaths objectify naturally, we’re all ants to them. Used/abused/crushed to amuse.

Those of us who have studied and trained in the concept of healthy sexuality—not just sexual pathology—realize the vast ranges of erotic expression in humans. We have barely begun to open to the idea that what has been acceptable culturally—heteronormative, monoganormative, and vanilla sex—does not begin to address who we really are.

“Vanilla sex” is actually healthy, normal, evolutionary sex. If you can’t appreciate normal sex, there is something medically wrong with you.

There’s the money, there’s the sale, there is what you’re really paying for.

Degenerates. Always preaching, always selling.

Go gay for Putin!

To think of all men as having pathological attitudes about sex is a sure way to shut down the emerging awareness of the myriad ways in which we can healthfully engage in this most basic expression of love and attachment, and differentiate it from the unhealthy ways we are seeing it played out in the media

He just said it isn’t about love and is 100% lust but ignore logic.
OMG it’s basic how can you argue with something so basic just go to a standard fuckparty and express yourself so basic, the only way to attach to another human being requires the Kama Sutra (btw quite a shit book).

Related, do gaslighters know what they’re doing?

https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/here-there-and-everywhere/201701/are-gaslighters-aware-what-they-dov

Duh. They know they get a thrill out of putting down good/kind/vulnerable people.
You wonder why there are less of them in the world?

The manipulations of gaslighters.

The Alt Right has been flooded with them, power-tripping on the quickly disappearing women and ‘beta virgins’ – no, they won’t read any evolution that makes them know how dumb they are.
“it’s okay to bully you, we’re on the same side” (in evidence, they only care about themselves, not even other white men)
“take a joke, you’re not allowed to be offended by banter” (British term, stop using it America)
“you’re too sensitive, stop caring about things” (not inc. their shit-tier opinions)
“what a loser” (by their highly subjective standards where they are #1 alpha dog in charge)

It would be sad if they weren’t so toxic. Gaslighters are a type of emotional vampire, this is why they threaten to leave – they feed on the drama of being begged to stay.

They leave when the host runs out of histrionics they can cause/manipulate (narcissistic supply) and they kill whatever movement they’re in (the cause of the manosphere implosion).

Men are dumb to gaslighters, failing to distinguish it from regular bullying or, in denser cases, bonding banter. When someone ostracizes you for existing, they’re not trying to bond?
It’s actually the Mean Girls unique form of bullying, deeply female. Isolation, esteem pummeling, all girls have experience with this. Bitchy traps like “you’re really pretty…. so you agree?” are tactically designed to plant a poisonous little seed of doubt or trigger some pain, the stupid men tend to skip ahead and insult a woman’s body parts e.g. her womb and/or fuckability, same as Mean Girls – pregnancy/whore slander and sluttiness/prude impossible fake standards. Think how low a man must be to verbally abuse a woman by her children, existent or not?

Others gaslight in order to feel some sense of control in their own lives by making others depend on them. Gaslighting can also be part of an authoritarian personality. A person with an authoritarian personality tends to think in absolutes: Things are 100 percent right or 100 percent wrong. When a gaslighter thinks that they are not the problem and everyone else is, this is called having an ego-syntonic personality.

It can be very difficult to get ego-syntonic gaslighters into treatment; they believe nothing is wrong with them.

That is called a lie.
In truth, they don’t care or see it as an advantage.
They’re the atheistkultists who lie about Darwin.

A gaslighting spouse or partner may either refuse to go to therapy, or if they do attend with you, they may tell the therapist that you are the problem.

If the therapist recommends that the gaslighter changes a behavior, the gaslighter will label the therapist as incompetent.

Even in therapy, a gaslighter may not truly be aware of, or may refuse to acknowledge that their behavior is the problem.

Worthless scum.

Even if a person is practicing gaslighting behavior without being consciously aware of it, they may get a “payoff” when their victim becomes more dependent on them. And then the cycle continues. The gaslighter also gets a “boost” when there are no checks and balances in place—no one holding them accountable for their behavior.

They claim not to be aware but they know it makes them feel strong?

K.

Someone fell for it. The sob story.

If a gaslighter is not aware of their manipulative behavior, that does not make it acceptable—it is still pathological, and it is still their responsibility. For gaslighters who have read up on this behavior or were taught it, of course, the same rule applies.

People tell them constantly. The definition of insanity? They’re just dense, they will never learn, so they’re commonly just a type of sociopath forever blaming their parents.

Negging is like gaslighting lite. They act like it’s nothing but select for the broken, like attracts like. Anyone with a spine is a ‘bitch’ or in the case of men, ‘an asshole.’ Lord Fauntleroy wants his way so the world must bow to Little Emperor…

ADHD/ADD nurture studies to piss off the idiots

Having a brain scan doesn’t prove shit.

The brain scans, as covered before, show you have brain damage.
They do not say why and there’s no genetic link proven.

It’s linked with a ton of nurture stuff.

e.g.

GABA signalling is off

https://psychcentral.com/news/2017/11/04/scientists-identify-chemical-in-brain-that-helps-us-stop-unwanted-thoughts/128306.html

that fucks up the train of thought.

GABA helps your brain to inhibit. It’s impulse control. It’s delay of gratification.

https://www.healthyplace.com/blogs/livingwithadultadhd/2017/09/that-stupid-marshmallow-study-adhd-and-self-control/

The marshmallow test is like an inverse IQ test, if you fail, because rare among psych tests you can actually fail it – your life outcomes suck.

“Self-control with ADHD is possible.” Don’t blame your genes, your parents don’t have it.

It’s also similar in symptom to less PC disorders like conduct disorders and intermittent explosive disorder (that’s being a criminal and throwing temper tantrums that involve destruction of property or assault to normal people). And you thought affluenza was bad. Parents don’t want to feel guilty about their parenting ‘skills’ and the fact they’re happy to drug up their child than impose some disciplinary techniques, which are proven to assist in the learning of that skill. LEARNING.

It’s considered a neckbeard condition. Why?

https://psychcentral.com/news/2017/02/07/mediterranean-diet-tied-to-fewer-adhd-diagnoses/116142.html

Stereotypes are true.

Good oils/fats like olive oil and butter instead of toxic vegetable oil, palm and canola  oil produce good nerves.

Is this like the new autism where you claim a sparkling snowflake high-functioning version of something literally defined by its developmental deficits? Look up category mistake.

“Freund said that altered dopamine signaling in the brain is common to both ADHD and the overweight or obese state.”

Plot twist: another neckbeard trope.

https://www.mentalhelp.net/articles/the-brains-of-porn-addicts/

Recent research has shown that non-drug addictions such as gambling, binge-eating, and sexual activities affect brain function in ways similar to alcohol and drug addiction. [12] Many addiction studies focus on what is referred to as the pleasure/reward circuitry and their corresponding neurotransmitters – chemicals that are responsible for the communication between neurons. One of the neurotransmitters frequently identified as central to addiction is dopamine. A behavior or drug that produces pleasure induces a rush of dopamine that ultimately “reinforces” that behavior, making it more likely to occur. The amygdala, basal ganglia, and other reward centers play a role in the reinforcement of the activity that produces pleasure.

So they’re likelier by far to self-medicate with… porn addiction.

These individuals also tend to have less connectivity between the striatum and areas of the prefrontal cortex, indicating reduced judgment, decision making, or control over impulsive behaviors.

You devolve. Neuroscientifically. You roll back your brain evolution.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/men/thinking-man/scary-effects-pornography-21st-centurys-accute-addiction-rewiring/

Is porn addiction genetic too?
Does Muh Genetics really excuse being an obnoxious prick all the time?

Then there’s a physiological impact. A 2015 study by researchers at the University of California found a rare positive correlation between porn watching and libido, but the consensus is on the opposite side. Last year, for instance, NHS experts noted an increase in erectile dysfunction in otherwise healthy young men, and thought excessive porn use was the most likely factor at play.

Prick, get it?

While many would argue the strength of porn doesn’t matter, as long as it is purely fantasy and consensual, it’s likely even a mild consumption fundamentally alters the way a person views sex. Studies have confirmed that the dopamine increase resulting from porn potentially means users require a greater and greater sensation from real sex in order to match what they can so easily access.

Porn-watching was linked to infidelity in another study, again American, which found that seeing multiple sexual partners on screen subtly wounds a committed relationship by convincing the watcher that the grass will be greener on the other side, no matter how happy you are with your current situation.

Hypofrontality is linked to pair bond death. It’s like a serial killer showing a conscience.

There’s nothing there.

 Some might remember the alarming suggestion, in 2014, that people’s brains shrink the more they watch pornography.

Keep re-testing. Oh wait, they don’t want to be seen as sex-negative.

Volumetric studies are easy, it’s either bigger, the same or … smaller. A lot smaller.

Note: 2D waifus are fine, it’s 3D real-seeming, moving porn that’s the issue.

Going to an ADHD brain study

https://www.decodedscience.org/basal-ganglia-studies-and-attention-deficit-hyperactivity-disorder-adhd/6074

Remember from above?

The amygdala, basal ganglia, and other reward centers play a role in the reinforcement of the activity that produces pleasure.”

So what reward gushing behaviours are being reinforced?

Amygdala?

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26964869

Sure.

Go nuts.

Patients with ADHD tend to have smaller amygdala volumes. ADHD patients presented less activation in the area of the left frontal pole than the controls. There was no amygdala activation stated when presenting the pleasant images. 

https://psychcentral.com/disorders/adhd/causes-of-adult-attention-deficit-hyperactivity-disorder-adhd/

Many things that cause IQ to drop like a rock (e.g. lead poisoning, a chavvy mother, shitty prole diet).

A 2002 study found that children with ADHD had 3-4 percent smaller brain volumes in all the brain regions measured. But children on ADHD medication had similar brain volumes to unaffected children, in some of the areas measured.

Picture that in IQ terms.

One big difference was the amount of “white matter” — long-distance connections between brain regions that normally become stronger as a child grows up. Children with ADHD who had never taken medication had an abnormally small volume of white matter.

Wonder why there are so few female psychopaths?

“They found a strong correlation between the integrity of the white matter and performance on a standard IQ test. “Going forward, we are certainly going to think of white matter structure as an important contributor of intelligence,” says Van Wedeen, a neuroscientist at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, who was also not involved in the research. “It also changes how you think about what IQ is measuring,” says Wedeen. The research was published last month in the Journal of Neuroscience.”

In the group of criminals who were psychopathic, the scientists observed lower volumes of gray matter in brain regions involved in empathy, moral reasoning, and the processing of social emotions such as guilt and embarrassment. They also found abnormalities in white matter fibers leading to the prefrontal cortex, in regions involved in learning from reward and punishment.

Ah, but what about the grey matter, they cry like a pig at a Ren Fayre?

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2829134/

Yeah, fuck you, too.
BTW, that method wasn’t designed for white matter so the finding on it doesn’t count.

“Overall, restricted structural brain abnormalities caused by ADHD were localized to brain systems known to be necessary for attention and executive function.”

And what they do have is like cellular Jenga.

As for the similarities to borderline previously discussed.

The American Professional Society of ADHD and Related Disorders writes: We know from many studies that ADHD is associated with a slightly lower intelligence quotient (IQ) and with problems in thinking known as executive function deficits.

IQ tests for executive function. Look it up.

For the average, mass of the bell curve, it’s the same.

Study: Low IQ Scores Do Not Reflect Low Intelligence in Adults with ADHD

Sure thing, like not having two working legs doesn’t make you any less able to win the race, if they move the finish line under your feet.

Because that’s how scientific constructs work, y’know, you just drop the standards for this one group and it’s all fine.

Reality bends around the entitlement.

Isn’t Nature grand?

ADHD doesn’t seem to be genetic, but the eerily similar low IQ is!

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14681911

Co-occurrence of ADHD and low IQ has genetic origins

Wouldn’t low IQ also affect parenting ability, diet, proclivity to smoking during pregnancy? Wouldn’t those things kinda be important, considering humans are born early and our brains need to develop for decades?

We show here that the co-occurrence of ADHD and lower IQ has genetic origins: 86% of the association between ADHD symptom scores and IQ, and 100% of the association between ADHD diagnosis and IQ, was accounted for by genetic influences that are shared by ADHD and IQ. Some candidate genes for ADHD could also contribute to variation in IQ or vice versa.

100%, that’ll be easy to talk around.

Although the key elements of hypofrontal syndromesimpulsivity, compulsivity, emotional lability, impaired judgment—are well described, much of the process is still unknown.

Assuming you’re born with it doesn’t help.

One emerging aspect of these hypofrontal states is their similarity to findings in addictive patients.

I see someone is using their brain.

Addressing hypofrontality, Fowler et al. noted, “studies of addicts show reduced cellular activity in the orbitofrontal cortex, a brain area…[relied upon]…to make strategic, rather than impulsive, decisions. Patients with traumatic injuries to this area of the brain display problems–aggressiveness, poor judgment of future consequences, inability to inhibit inappropriate responses that are similar to those observed in substance abusers.”[8] (emphasis added).

What does that have to do with diet?

The obesity study demonstrated multiple areas of volume loss, particularly in the frontal lobes, areas associated with judgment and control.

A decade ago Dr. Howard Shaffer at Harvard wrote, “I had great difficulty with my own colleagues when I suggested that a lot of addiction is the result of experience … repetitive, high-emotion, high-frequency experience. But it’s become clear that neuroadaptation—that is, changes in neural circuitry that help perpetuate the behavior—occurs even in the absence of drug-taking.”[13] More recently he wrote, “Although it is possible to debate whether we should include substance or process addictions within the kingdom of addiction, technically there is little choice. Just as the use of exogenous substances precipitate impostor molecules vying for receptor sites within the brain, human activities stimulate naturally occurring neurotransmitters. The activity of these naturally occurring psychoactive substances likely will be determined as important mediators of many process addictions.”

Translation: it isn’t just drugs, behaviours count.

AKA why behaviourism works.

You need the drugs right? They make you feel like it isn’t your fault.

https://blogs.psychcentral.com/adhd-zoe/2010/06/mantra-meditation-an-adhd-panacea/

Meditation is free.

Of particular benefit to ADHDers is the affect of chanting on frontal lobe activity. The frontal lobe is said to be responsible for executive functioning, a function of the brain that is underdeveloped in ADHDers, rendering us incapable of pulling it all together to be successful. Executive functioning is said to provide the ability to plan, organize, keep track of time, complete tasks on time, control emotions, and much more. (For more information on executive function, click here).

The website The Secrets of Yoga states:

“In studies performed at Arizona University, it was shown through a PET scan how a change occurred in the activity of the brain from the frontal part to the parietal part during the chanting of the mantra Sa Ta Na Ma. This change indicated an improvement in mood and alertness.”

Why should taxpayers fund you when you’re too lazy to do the free shit as an adult that helps?
Drugs don’t grow your frontal lobe, it’s like a mute button on the problem, a band-aid on the broken bone. Freeing you up to make the problem worse and act like it’s society’s fault, almost like you cannot learn a lesson…

https://psychcentral.com/lib/the-vicious-cycle-of-adult-add-shame-and-compulsive-sexuality/

Many sexual compulsives with ADD have had experiences like Brian’s. They struggled in school because they got bored or had a hard time paying attention. Once bored, they would stare out the window, often caught up by sexual fantasies….Most feel the self-loathing of people who are working under capacity, and experience the pain and grief of living a life of lost opportunities and diminished personal potential.

Boo fucking hoo.

It’s an excuse for suburban white middle-class brats to act hard done by.

The rest of us got bored too, we still got shit done.

You know the middle-class wino moms? also a factor

Most importantly, children who have FASD require different types of treatments than those who have standard hyperactivity disorder. “About 74 percent of children with FASD do meet criteria for ADHD,” he said, “but, because of all the neurochemistry changes from the alcohol, it’s a different kind of ADHD.”

http://thevoiceofreason-ann.blogspot.co.uk/2010/09/middle-class-oarents-of-children-with.html

How to treat ADHD? Stigmatise it. The simplest and most responsible thing this government should do – but I know it won’t – is to put any child who has ADHD into a special class of ADHD sufferers or even put them into an ADHD *school*. That would shut these parents up good and proper.

You wanna be snowflakes, you get a special school.

Well, if they are annoying you and won’t stop annoying you, then it is their bloody fault. 

They shouldn’t be allowed around neurotypical students, for the sake of everyone, including themselves. If it’s a real condition they can’t help.

We used to call many of those symptoms being a spoiled brat or plain rude.
Being obnoxious isn’t chargeable though. Send them to special military academies to learn the discipline research shows is possible? That would help them, it’s for their own good. After all, people with a mental disease, especially minors, must listen to the experts.

It isn’t as if they’re just lazy.

https://www.spectator.co.uk/2014/03/dyslexia-isnt-real-but-dont-worry-neither-is-adhd/

Anyway, the team from Durham — that most middle-class of all universities, just to rub it in — suggested that the word ‘dyslexia’ be consigned to the history books. It is utterly meaningless. It is a pretentious word for ‘thick’.

Your beloved academia.
Full of people like me.

Pathologising children is evil. Pathologising adults never absolves them of responsibility for their actions. Nobody is above the law.

Dr Richard Saul, who has been investigating this area for many years, has come to the conclusion that ADHD is a meaningless term, too. Again, you and I both knew this instinctively, but even more so — even more than with dyslexia — we dare not say it.

Shit Fitness Disorder didn’t pass the committee board.

Dr Saul believes the expensive and horrible drugs — such as Ritalin — with which these devil-monkeys are chemically restrained are more injurious than helpful. Give the kids a proper diet rather than drugs, he argues, try not to feed them an almost continuous supply of brown, deep-fried, fat-soaked, filth. And look after them properly — read them Auden and Eliot and get them working on Fermat’s last theorem. A refusal to pay attention is not a disease, not a medical condition — it’s a character flaw, and one which could be stamped out given the necessary willpower from the parents.

It’s literally why we have schools.

Lumping kids in by age is stupid. If you can pass adult exams at 6, you should be allowed.

If the food needs to be good, the parents have to spend more and maybe cook?
How dare a child be expensive for anyone but the taxpayer.

The sufferers alleged that it was a hate crime to suggest — as most medical practitioners do, in private — that both ‘illnesses’ were rooted squarely in the noggin. Uh-oh, let’s draw a veil, I can see my inbox filling up already and the plod calling round.

Calling a spade a spade… is probably a hate crime actually. But we have genetics so fuck them, and better genetics, so it’s funny since you’d expect them to deny it.
So ironic most ADHD claim to be pro-science libertarians defending free speech.

Wait, wait, if that wasn’t special enough, they also claim hyperfocus.

https://blogs.psychcentral.com/sex-addiction/2013/03/the-power-of-porn-attention-hyperfocus-and-dissociation/

That’s right, they’re TOO focused because they…. can’t focus….

Being glued to the computer screen for hours on end looking at pornography can be seen in adults with ADHD as a symptom of that disorder, namely hyperfocus (or more properly perseveration) which is a form of rigid attention.

So they have no trouble paying attention to porn but somehow the teacher isn’t kinky enough?
Yes, that sounds like nature. The nature of a wanker.

It gets better

Dr. Russell Barkley has argued that what we call the ADHD “hyperfocus,” should really be called “perseveration” a symptom of the frontal lobe issues in ADHD.

He argues that “hyperfocus” is a term that more appropriately relates to autism spectrum disorders, where the person has a problem connecting different areas of the brain.  The two terms seem to be used popularly to describe similar behavior of disappearing into the stimulus or activity.

They stole it from the autistics. It doesn’t really apply.

https://blogs.psychcentral.com/sex-addiction/2012/10/attention-deficit-disorder-and-sex-addiction-whats-the-connection/

He found that it is not impulsivity but the detrimental affects on self-esteem suffered by children with ADHD that causes them to seek to self-medicate with drugs or sex to cope with their poor self concept and low self confidence. (This argument rests on the fact that many adults with ADHD began as children with ADHD.)

It isn’t Shawnie’s fault he does the drugs, he just needs to love himself more!
Are you high to believe this? I guess it’d help.

The low self-esteem explanation makes sense in light of the fact cited by Dr. Reid that 11-35% of people with chemical dependency and pathological gambling also have adult ADHD.

Sounds more like an excuse for adult immaturity.
I’d like to gamble too. Most people would. Like they don’t have a choice?

If they don’t have a choice, why aren’t they in asylums? We lock people up who cannot be held responsible for their actions, for public safety. Freedom is predicated on the fact you can choose to do the legal thing. They’re taking drugs anyway, that needs to be under observation anyway.

As children, virtually the only drug available is sexual self-soothing.

You know, self-abuse used to be common in Victorian asylum inmates?

Hating their parents is also a factor. Abandonment, which class complains of that?

False Memory in Adults With ADHD: A Comparison Between Subtypes and Normal Controls

I said. Ma house.

The adults with ADHD have more false memories than the controls and that false memory formation varied with the ADHD subtypes.

But the drugs! The drugs! The drugs they take, legal or not!

https://blogs.psychcentral.com/sex-addiction/2013/05/can-ritalin-help-cure-sex-addicts/

“Drugs of abuse confuse these pathways, thus leading to compulsive drug-seeking and the lack of inhibitory control that contribute to an addict’s relapse.” and

Nah, makes it worse. Again, retarded, slow to learn. If ever.

“Although a standard U.S. diagnostic manual (the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition or DSM-IV) describes multiple addictions, each tied to a specific substance or activity, consensus is emerging that these may represent multiple expressions of a common underlying brain process.”

Some researchers have questioned whether there is solid evidence for the notion that the brain effects of behavioral addictions like porn addiction are identical to those of chemical addictions and future research will clarify the processes involved in various addictions.

But data continue to come in.  Another recent study reportedly found that cannabisusers had lower levels of dopamine production and that dopamine levels were lowest for those who started earlier and those who smoked more cannabis.  The authors postulate that this could explain the “amotivational syndrome” sometimes claimed to be a result of cannabis use.  They also point to the parallel between their results and those relating to altered dopamine systems in cocaine and amphetamine users.

Ritalin helps coke addicts.

“Using fMRI, we found that methylphenidate did indeed have a beneficial impact of the connectivity between several brain centers associated with addiction.”

Yeah, but narcissists can’t get addicted to Ritalin, right?

http://www.ritalinabusehelp.com/how-does-narcissism-relate-to-ritalin-addiction

Ritalin is a stimulant that promotes wakefulness, increased attentiveness and euphoria. Drug users strongly seek these effects, which means they will go to great lengths for this substance. In addition, Ritalin is a prescription drug that is commonly prescribed, which gives users easy access to the drug. In other words, people with narcissism have a high susceptibility for drug abuse, which increases the chance for addiction. Narcissistic individuals have a high-risk for Ritalin addiction for the following reasons:

  • Narcissists are often isolated from others because people avoid these patients. To cope with loneliness or to impress others, they may abuse drugs like Ritalin to boost their energy.

  • Narcissists are attention-seekers, so they may engage in risky, reckless and abnormal behaviors for a rush and attention

  • Narcissists feel superior to others, like their actions and behaviors are limitless. Narcissists typically exude rebellion and troublesome behavior, because they think the rules don’t apply to them.

  • Narcissistic individuals lack empathy for others, so when their drug use causes harm, it only makes them feel more powerful

I’m sure the Ritalin abuse helpline knows nothing on the subject.

It doesn’t even fix depression. This is claimed in a weasel word way.
https://www.psychologytoday.com/articles/200312/ritalin-blues

Ritalin Blues is a term.

Both children developed suicidal ideation that abated after discontinuing the drug. There were no depressive symptoms reported along with it, and the ideation could not be explained on the basis of impulsivity either.

Sure, take the kill pills. You need ’em, right?

I wasn’t going to post this and went easy before and before that, but considering that smug aura of fake superiority, I had to take 15 minutes to write up the obvious. For people who can read. I can do this to anyone, try me. Some of us are genuinely scientifically literate.

The “gray rock” rejection of psychopaths and narcissists

https://lovefraud.com/the-gray-rock-method-of-dealing-with-psychopaths/

Even if we don’t take them back, the most dangerous time for a person is when they first break up with a psychopath. The psychopath feels rage at being discarded. Losing control or power over a person is not just a narcissistic injury for them; they feel profoundly empty when their partner leaves them even if they had intended to kill their partner. The reason is because they have lost control. Psychopaths need to feel in control at all times.

For all these situations, we have Gray Rock.

What it is:Ӭ

So, how do we escape this parasitical leech without triggering his vindictive rage? Gray Rock is primarily a way of encouraging a psychopath, a stalker or other emotionally unbalanced person, to lose interest in you. It differs from No Contact in that you don’t overtly try to avoid contact with these emotional vampires. Instead, you allow contact but only give boring, monotonous responses so that the parasite must go elsewhere for his supply of drama. When contact with you is consistently unsatisfying for the psychopath, his mind is re-trained to expect boredom rather than drama. Psychopaths are addicted to drama and they can’t stand to be bored. With time, he will find a new person to provide drama and he will find himself drawn to you less and less often. Eventually, they just slither away to greener pastures. Gray Rock is a way of training the psychopath to view you as an unsatisfying pursuit you bore him and he can’t stand boredom.
