Reduced Laughter Contagion in Children Could be the mechanism by which Narcissism, Antisocial Behavior and Psychopathy are developed

This new Medical Study sheds some light on one area of development of a child which could impact that’s child’s future.

If the young child is raised in an environment where there are no times of laughter among the people raising that child, then  the child could be negatively impacted. One example could be a Husband and Wife constantly bickering and fighting and never having time to laugh together. The Child could grow up in a sad home where the family never shared laughter together.

So something as simple of having laughter in a child’s life, could  impact their development into Human Beings who care and have empathy for fellow Human Beings.

I also suspect that this could be used in Junior Kindergarten. Bring in really funny movies for the kids to watch. The children could laugh together, which just might help develop empathy in those children who have never experienced laughter at home.

Please note this Research Study was published Open Access, so there is No Pay Wall to cross to be able to read it. I personally am grateful for Open Access publishing of Research Studies.

Too often one has to pay to be able cross a Pay Wall to be able to read a Research Study and most Research is funded by Government Agencies which are funded by us the Taxed Payers. In my opinion it seems unfair to the Tax Payers to pay once to finance the Research Study and then have to pay a second time to be able to read the Research Study which Tax Payers helped fund.

One last note. William James (1842-1910) who was the first to offer a Psychology Course in the United States, created a great quote: “We don’t laugh because we’re happy, we’re happy because we laugh.

This could be another RED FLAG to watch for. Does the suspected Narcissist or Disordered Individual genuinely laugh along with others at a gathering? In a longer term relationship, do you both laugh together often or Not At All?

Hunting humans: A future for tourism in 2200

There was a paper recently published in the Peer Reviewed Scientific Journal called Futures, in the April–May 2016 issue (on pages 34–46). The paper was titled “Hunting humans: A future for tourism in 2200“. The author of that paper was Daniel William Mackenzie Wright, who is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Central Lancashire.

Hunting Humans is something which I believe Narcissists already do. Not to kill, but to secure sources of Narcissistic Supply. For example, Empaths and Codependents are sought out (ie hunted for) and targeted. You do not have to wait for the year 2200 to have Humans hunting other Humans.

Death as a sport is also not something new. The Romans did something similar eons ago, with their Gladiator battles. My two cents worth regarding this: is that something very large is hard to turn around. You can’t turn an ocean liner on a dime. Same goes for humanity. I am of the opinion that there has been an explosion in the number of Disordered individuals, be they Narcissists or Sociopaths or Psychopaths.

There is a saying in Investing Circles that “A Trend is your Friend“. Get on board when a stock is rising and the odds are that it could climb higher. Lets assume that I am correct and that there is a growing trend to having society filled with Disordered Individuals. Trends keep going. The Scientific Paper about Hunting Humans as a Tourist Attraction “could” become a  sick reality by the year 2200. Psychopaths would have a field day.

The paper presented the following question: “In what circumstance is it acceptable for one human being, for entertainment or leisure, (to) watch or even pay to see the death of another human being?“. It would be interesting to have said question presented to Psychopaths and to hear their answers. They just might answer back with a question “When is it “not” acceptable?” along with the look of dismay on their face, because to them it is always acceptable (and pleasurable). Not acceptable behaviour is a concept generally foreign to Psychopaths, who set their own standards of behaviour. If it suits them, they do it.

The following line was from the Abstract of the article: “Death as entertainment by form of detachment (emotionally and physically) will further influence the future fun aspect of hunting humans.“. The author used the words “fun aspect of hunting humans“. Makes me wonder how much “fun” the author would have, should he be the one being hunted. This article was not something out of say the National Enquirer. The article was in a Peer Reviewed “Scientific Journal”.

Those who physically abuse others, are emotionally detached from the person that they are abusing. Brain Scans of Psychopaths seem to indicate that the Pleasure Centers of a Psychopath’s Brain are turned on when they view images and videos of people being physically hurt and or killed. Psychopaths are wired to gain pleasure from hurting, torturing and killing a human being or animal. Psychopaths may lack a Conscience. Hunting Humans for sport, while on a vacation, is something that could draw lots of Psychopaths.
