Wow, a new emerging diagnostic term for people who share some of the same personality features as real psychopaths. And did you know that there are more ‘almost psychopaths‘ in the world than real psychopaths according to researchers at Harvard Medical School, Dr. Kormaroff, and authors Ron Schouten and Jim Silver? In their new book, Schouten and Silver will help you discover whether you or someone you love are an ‘almost psychopath.’
According to Schouten and Silver, an ‘almost psychopath’ is characterized by the following traits: grandiosity, exaggerated self-worth, pathological lying, manipulation, lack of remorse, shallowness, and exploitation for financial gain.
Can you just imagine the conversations that will arise? “Dear, we have to talk. I think you are an ‘almost psychopath’ . . .”
With this new label, the world just got a little more scary.
