Walking the Line Between Good and Evil: The Common Thread of Heroes and Villains | Andrea Kuszewski

Walking the Line Between Good and Evil: The Common Thread of Heroes and Villains | Andrea Kuszewski | Writing, Research, Applied Thinking and Applied Theory: Solutions with Interesting Implications, Problem Solving, Teaching and Research driven solutions | Scoop.it

A few years ago, I wrote an article titled, “Addicted to Being Good? The Psychopathology of Heroism“, in which I first discussed the potential genetic link between Sociopaths and Heroes, or X-Altruists. In theory, their genetic make-up is very similar—same basic group of extreme traits in each personality—with a few important exceptions, one being expressed empathy. This notion was hinted at in 1995 by Behavior Geneticist David Thoreson Lykken [1] in his book, The Antisocial Personalities, when he said, “the hero and the psychopath may be twigs on the same genetic branch.” It is very possible that two members of the same family—even brothers in a shared home environment—could end up as seemingly polar opposites; one doing extreme good: the X-Altruist, the other doing extreme bad: the Sociopath.

The A-Z of Words that describe emotions. A list of words about emotions that will help you understand different ways of describing emotions.
Sharrock's insight:

This might be useful to increase student communication (oral and written). Wordwall and word banks may decrease verbal violence as well as increase sophistication in writing.
