Assessment, Seducing and Mirroring | Dating a Sociopath Mirror Mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all? In the very beginning things feel extremely promising with the sociopath. But you will not know why. You have met what appears to be the person of your dreams. He has assessed you by What you sayBody languageTalks of needs and wantsInformation about your lifeHow much do you have to take? In the beginning the sociopath will ask a lots of questions? The sociopath is a predator and has the ability to read a person better than anyone Despite his warm charismatic extererior, behind this lies a cold calculating mind, not inhibited by emotions. He is the slick, smooth salesman, and will assess you, for what you want, what you need, will mirror back to you, and then ‘sell’ you exactly what you want. The assessment and how they mirror you, will depend on what they want from you. If they need money? “how much is your house worth” ”how much do you earn”“do you have any debts”? From an early point, the sociopath is assessing you. 1. 2. 3.

Watch Psychology » Page 3 of 11 Documentaries Online Free Fear is apparently a universal emotion; all persons, consciously or unconsciously, have fear in some sort. In short, fear is the ability to recognize danger leading to an urge to confront it or flee from it. Very few people understand the programming of fear, and why it distorts our perceptions. While fear is a program used for our survival, fear also creates irrational beliefs that cause larger systems of fear like politics, religion and the media. A Virus Called Fear is short film about the conditioning...

What Is Classism Classism is differential treatment based on social class or perceived social class. Classism is the systematic oppression of subordinated class groups to advantage and strengthen the dominant class groups. It’s the systematic assignment of characteristics of worth and ability based on social class. That includes: individual attitudes and behaviors;systems of policies and practices that are set up to benefit the upper classes at the expense of the lower classes, resulting in drastic income and wealth inequality;the rationale that supports these systems and this unequal valuing; andthe culture that perpetuates them. Classism is held in place by a system of beliefs and cultural attitudes that ranks people according to economic status, family lineage, job status, level of education, and other divisions. Middle-class and owning- or ruling-class people (dominant group members) are seen as smarter and more articulate than working-class and poor people (subordinated groups).

The Dance – Sociopath and Empath I am an empath, which to me means I have talents others don’t have and I also have weaknesses. I honestly can’t decide whether or not it’s good or bad to be an empath. It certainly makes me unique! I have experienced things like telepathy, mind reading, psychic visions, etc. without much effort. I can feel people’s emotions and I can relate to them and help them through it. People who haven’t been exposed to what a sociopath is may have a wrong impression about how to spot them. Having encountered a few sociopaths in my life, I can easily describe what “the dance” is like. The second part of the dance is the PUSH/PULL. The reason this becomes a dance is that the sociopath is also attracted to the empath. After the sociopath feels they have adequately yet subtly hooked in the empath is when the ATTACK happens. The next phase is usually GASLIGHTING which involves the sociopath discarding the empath once they’ve gotten what they wanted. So, what is an empath to do really? Like this:

Working-Class Culture | Working-Class Perspectives So union density in United States has declined yet again. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, only 11.3% of American workers now belong to unions. This compares to 11.8% in 2011, and it’s a long way from the all-time high of 35% in the early 1940s. The “right to work” campaign is expanding – even to Michigan, of all states – along with “austerity” policies that target working people. Since Ronald Reagan launched his attack on labor in 1980, when union density was at 20%, real wages have declined along with union membership to a point where we now have a “gilded age” level of income inequality. In times like these, it is useful to be reminded of what unions can be good for. Bell’s book – subtitled “a novel of immigrant labor in America” when it was republished by the University of Pittsburgh Press in 1976 – follows three generations of a Slovak-American family from arrival in the 1880s up to the unionization of the steel mills in the New Deal era.

Necronomicon Tarot: Excerpt The Tarot of Madness and Beauty The "unmentionable Necronomicon of the mad Arab Abdul Alhazred" is best known from the references that appear in the short stories of H. P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) and other authors who wrote stories grouped together as part of the "Cthulhu Mythos." The stories are filled with tales of evil and horror, of ancient, all-powerful gods who once ruled the earth and who are trying to rule again. Recently, famed occultist Donald Tyson has written two books in this tradition.

Important Things From History Everyone Pictures Incorrectly | moco-choco 1. The pyramids of Giza were originally white and shiny. image credit–> amazingbeautifulworld The Perception: Pyramids are a marvel of ancient engineering. The Reality: What we think of today as the Pyramids are really just the exposed layers of the structural base. Thus came the Pyramids, with a structural base of staggered yellow limestone bricks cased in an outer layer of Tura Limestone. Why We Picture it Wrong: If they have survived nearly five thousand years, chances are that they were subject of much amazement and folklores. source–> todayifoundout 2.
