    Mmmm...like the young lady in Stoker...I cannot choose who I am as much as a flower chooses their color, like a skirt blown in the wind.

    I like that she points out that her mother and father and uncle had something to do with. Most estimations of psychopathy include participation of environment; it's not completely genetic like bipolar or schizophrenia; which is why people with bipolar and schizophrenia can be so "interesting" and "lovely" making music or art or writing....it's genetics without too much ugly environmental input.

    Then you have your violent schizophrenic and dangerous bipolar which are usually result of environment plus genetics, like psychopath, which requires the "perfect storm" of genetics plus abuse.

    I wear my mother's shirt and my father's belt and shoes my (psychopath) uncle bought for me.

    I don't think it excuses it though. They're like the ancient demon possessed.

    She wasn't "totally unfazed". She was totally crazed. Murderous rage is an emotion. In this context, an irrational one.
    I am serious. I have no patience with minor but self-important officials who busy themselves enforcing pointless, petty rules. Some people will object and argue when taken to task by such a person, but because the person is granted some authority by their position, this can end badly. Ignoring the person as much as possible is more effective and less risky. The world is full of people who, put in charge of a very small matter, treat it as their personal fiefdom in a way that is quite insufferable. If you have not noticed such people in your daily interactions, you are either very lucky, or perhaps already automatically ignoring them.

    You are right about the subsequent emotional reaction. This does argue against the idea that psychopaths are emotionally detached, or incapable of feeling. The woman herself understands the nature of her reaction, though, as well as the inadvisability of pursuing it. If only all revenge fantasies came to such a fruitless end.

    Manipulating the thoughts, feelings and behaviours of those around her makes her feel powerful. She is also parasitising / sabotaging emotions she is unable to genuinely to experience herself. Psychopaths are needy beings at heart, like all parasites, they have to find a host. I think you would have to be terribly sad and empty to derive any kind of satisfaction from breaking someone's heart.
    This is interesting, and again points to the role of emotions in what a psychopath does and why. I had considered mainly the challenge of the action: could she actually pull it off? I must admit, when I do things to help people, I often get satisfaction from exactly this, that I was able to do it.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...
