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 | Personality | 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.

Theodore Millon, a Student of Personality, Dies at 85

Theodore Millon, a Student of Personality, Dies at 85 | Personality | Scoop.it
Dr. Millon was a crucial figure in shaping the understanding of personality disorders, and a self-described exemplar of “secure narcissism.”
Sandeep Gautam's insight:

Dr. Millon, he wrote of himself, was distinguished from many others in the book “by the fact that he appears, contrawise, to be invariably buoyant, if not jovial. Critics are not invariably enamored, however, finding his work to be, at times, too speculative, his writing unduly imaginative, and his creativity overly expansive.”
RIP Dr. Millon
