2020.08.11 14:40 AligatorTearsLet's Dispel some Myths!
Hey, I just put waaay to much effort into a response to some dickhead who thinks he's an expert on sociopathy because he dated a girl with ASPD this one time or something. But since his comments are shit that comes up a lot I thought I'd share my response here too on the off chance that somebody here might benefit. Anyone else have some myths they want to debunk the hell out of? Let's make a whole thing out if it! Let's act fancy and add links to recent academic studies on the topic so we can sound clever and intellectual! Myth: There is no such thing as a diagnosed psychopath/sociopath Fact: ASPD is defined in the DSM5 as including psychopathy and sociopathy). That said, psychopathy itself isn't a disease and is therefore not in the manual for diagnosing mental health disorders. The majority of psychopaths (1% of the population) are subclinical and able to live reasonably functional lives. Those who are unable to live functional lives may end up with an ASPD diagnosis but ASPD and psychopathy are distinct and separate conditions. Myth: Psychopath has no meaning in psychology anymore Fact: Psychopathy as a term is frequently used in studies concerned with how people with psychopathic traits and/or brain variances perceive and interact with the world differently to the general population. These studies include both criminals and non-criminals who exhibit psychopathic tendencies who are described in the papers as psychopaths and not as having antisocial personality disorder because ASPD is a broad diagnostic category and isn't particularly useful in understanding the specific differences in neural functioning of the specific collection of neurodivergent traits which is called psychopathy. Here's some academic articles from the past year which use the term 123456789 there are hundreds more and they are not difficult to find. In fact, the term is so commonly used in research that you would need to avoid the field entirely to avoid encountering its use in a psychological research setting. Myth: Psychopaths can't have long lasting healthy relationships Fact: There is no correlation between psychopathic traits and relationship success or satisfaction (study) and there are certain traits present in both psychopath and Machiavellian personalities that improve relationships satisfaction and lead to more healthy relationship habits. If psychopaths want a relationship, they will find a way to make it work they way they want it to. If they want a happy partner, they'll make that happen too. Doing what needs to be done to get the results they want with a complete disregard for everything else is kinda their thing. Myth: All psychopaths are criminals Fact: While criminal behavior is one factor in the PCLr which is used as one of the diagnostic tools for assessing and diagnosing psychopathy and ASPD, it is possible to score above the threshold for diagnosis without having a criminal record. It is rare that somebody without a criminal record will be in a situation where they are being assessed for ASPD but not unheard of. Psychopathy on the other hand has a sub-category of "successful psychopath" who are defined as being psychopathic and non-institutionalized. Here is a study that is observing the differences between criminal psychopaths and successful psychopaths. Myth: Psychopaths don't get nervous Fact: Psychopathy can be divided into primary and secondary psychopathy. Secondary psychopathy is sometimes referred to as "sociopathy" (though this isn't its primary definition). People with high levels of secondary psychopathic traits may experience some emotions in an uncontrolled and heightened state and may in fact experience nervousness in some cases.
2020.04.15 00:35 throwaway46751049851Geriatric Woohoo Death Tournament - first round results are in (plus traits info)!
Link to first post We have the results of the first round of the Geriatric Woohoo Death Tournament! See below for play-by-play details, an updated bracket, and more information on each Sims' traits. Red Team: Ebony vs Rachelle This was a very well-matched team. Ebony and Rachelle kicked off the tournament with an impressive four Woohoos before Rachelle died of exhaustion. It turns out that Ebony's randomly assigned sleepwear is a red robe. Was that a coincidence or proof that she's cheating somehow (most likely doping)? Time will tell. Either way, four Woohoos is a lot, and I'm sad to see Rachelle go. Winner: Ebony Stats: 4 Woohoos (Bed -> Bed -> Shower -> Shower) Orange Team: Camille vs Mekhi It only took two Woohoos before Mekhi tapped out. Again, it was the shower Woohoo that was the deciding factor. Is there something about shower Woohoos that promote death more quickly? Maybe the heat? Mekhi's sleep shirt was also orange, but this appears to be a coincidence and doesn't disprove that there is a doping scandal lurking right out of sight. Winner: Camille Stats: 2 Woohoos (Bed -> Shower) Yellow Team: Vincenzo vs Lisa We have our first male Sim moving on the next round with Vincenzo's defeat of Lisa! After 3 solid bouts, it was Lisa who threw in the towel after a shower. But instead of mourning the still warm body of his wife Lisa, Vincenzo used the toilet. Seriously? This guy might have the emotional disconnect it takes to Woohoo your way to the top. Winner: Vincenzo Stats: 3 Woohoos (Bed -> Shower -> Shower) Green Team: Lakshmi vs Brittany It took two to tango and two tangos to turn up Lakshmi's toes. Lakshmi looked adorably old ladyish yet kinda cool in her purple and red sleep combo, but that wasn't enough to save her. With a wham and a bam, Brittany took her out. Apparently, Brittany's eccentric townie fashion belied the heart of a killer and champion. Winner: Brittany Stats: 2 Woohoos (Bed -> Shower) Blue Team: Jax vs Britney Jax and Britney are maybe the coolest looking pair, and you just know Jax has a motorcyle that Britney rides on the back of, and they go all over the country together. Unfortunately, they won't be going on any more road trips, because Jax killed Britney. And that's sad and everything, but wow, we did also learn Jax was a mega hottie underneath those sunglasses. Jax does spend time pleading with Grim and seems to be quite sad about losing Britney. Is his heart too soft to do well in this competition? Winner: Jax Stats: 3 Woohoos (Shower -> Bed -> Bed) Pink Team: Waldemar vs Carter Carter really had us fooled. He really seemed like he had the mental fortitude to make it through, but it turns out that Waldemar is a yuppy killer. It took but two showers before Carter took his final rest and Waldemar took a nap. On the surface, I suppose it's logical that Waldemar was just worn out and needed a rest, but after only twoo Woohoos plus all the doping rumors going around? Maybe he was actually coming down off something... Winner: Waldemar Stats: 2 Woohoos (Shower -> Shower) Brown Team: Jon vs Derrick In maybe the most depressing room on the lot (so much brown), Jon emerged the victor after only two Woohoos with Derrick. I honestly don't think Jon was the stronger competitor, though.It just didn't look like Derrick's head was really in the game, and Jon squeaked by with the win. Of course, I could be wrong, and maybe Jon will make it through the next round. Hopefully not because his soul patch is terrible. Winner: Jon Stats: 2 Woohoos (Shower -> Bed) INTERLUDE: After the Brown Team finished and before the Gray Team began, Waldemar managed to set himself on fire while making grilled cheese. Camille put him outbefore he died, but it will be interesting to see how this experience could affect him the next time he competes. Grey Team: Korbin vs Skyler We had a little bit of a situation when this pair started, because Ebony sneaked into their hut and was sleeping in their bed when they began. I quickly kicked her out, but she might have had some effect on Korbin and Skyler becuase it took only two Woohoos to send Skyler to the great Neighborhood in the sky. It was not a great showing from this pair either, and the match between Jon and Korbin will be either very interesting or very disappointing. Winner: Korbin Stats: 2 Woohoos (Shower -> Shower) UPDATED BRACKET Sims' Traits I made a mistake in the original post. I said that all Sims had the Romantic trait plus two random traits. This is not true; they are all random traits.
Every time a Sim died after Woohooing in the shower, the surviving partner always stood emotionless in the bathroom occasionally making small head movements while Grim reaped the soul of their defeated partner. The exception being, of course, Vincenzo who decided to take advantage of a quiet moment to see a man about a dog.
Ebony spent most of her time moping in the rec house and inflicting her stupid face on everyone. Just looking at her, you know she's croaking out in her vocal fry that she's "like, soooo saaad, you guysss." Cut the bullshit, Ebony Dark'ness Raven Dementia Way. She's the only one who made it to 4 Woohoos, and so we know she's a strong competitor. That plus the stuff she pulled? When Carter set himself on fire, notice how shecomesrunning with all the other Sims, but once the fire is out and they disperse, she hangs around. Weird, right? Then, she gets even more brazen by sneaking into Korbin and Skyler's tournament hut and *taking a nap while they compete.* Disgusting. AND THEN, immediately after Korbin and Skyler finish, Jon is consoling Korbin in the rec house, and Ebony is RIGHT behind them wearing God knows what and watching MasterChef while Korbin cries on Jon's shoulder. Show some respect, you fucking donkey.
I created a graveyard right in the middle of the lot so the Sims can grieve freely and also be constantly reminded of their fate if they fail to perform.
I uploaded the households to the gallery, and someone commented "why did you make them all old" lol
Lupinus Virtual Games is a Virtual Gaming group consisting of four girls - Ichinose Uruha, Sumire Kaga, her younger twin sister Nazuna Kaga, and Kogara Toto. Debuting with two initial members at 2018 and the other 2 in early 2019, the four girls focus on streaming video games - particularly shooters - rather than the more varied streaming topics of other groups. PUBG and Apex Legends rank amongst their most played games, though they are not particularly restricted to any type. They also have an excellent animated short, 'A story of 0.2 Seconds' with backgrounds drawn by Chigu, 3D animation and directing done by Yasugen, and the singing done by Ryushen. Nazuna Kaga, who has been mentioned in this community recently, is the first to debut amongst the Lupinus Virtual Gamers, debuting one day before her older twin sister Sumire Kaga. According to herself, she speaks English, and is currently in the middle of studying the language, though seeing as she plays CS:GO highly frequently, English probalby isn't thr only one she should be learning in order to communicate efficiently cyka with foreign teammates. Interestingly enough, most of the Lupinus girls have introduced their rooms and setups through videos before, though they make sure not to record their own bodies while doing so, instead opting for standing character cards. Nazuna’s room is plastered with images of herself, and is pink themed. She’s also covered the OP for Umaru-Chan, which is a fitting song for her character. Sumire Kaga, Nazuna’s older twin sister, has a softer voice in comparison to Nazuna. From her room introduction, her and Nazuna’s rooms are next to one another and she has a gigantic stuffed crocodile with a recorder in her room. Sumire and Nazuna have a short video opening that can be seen in many streams, such as in this PUBG Collab with Kanae. And like any Vtuber, she has played the recently released 夜勤事件, to great effect. Personally, I find her reactions during gameplay to be entertaining, and as a guy who shrieks upon dying in Apex, it’s always good to know that I’m not alone in getting the nervous giggles when shot. Kogara Toto is a girl who, like her name suggests, likes birds very much. Her room shows this too, as there are multiple bird statues arrayed neatly near to her streaming setup, all six of which have been given names by her (mostly food names, such as Caramel, Grape, Chocolate, Mary, and Sunflower). The Lupinus Gamer who sings the most frequently amongst the four, her karaoke streams are collected in a playlist here, and she has done a cover of 声. Additionally, she’s a PUBG Japan Official Partner, which is the game she likely plays the most alongside Apex Legends. Ichinose Uruha, otherwise known by many here through her “angry girl” video clips, is the only Lupinus Gamer without a room introduction video (likely because her room layout is funky, with 2 beds that she alternates sleeping in, amongst other reasons). More aloof and abrasive than some, her streaming style is highly casual and laid-back, which personally lends to the fact that she finds interacting with her viewers to be much more similar to interacting with her own friends. For her subscriber count, she gathers a very dedicated viewer following that can break 1000 frequently - which is all the more impressive considering she’s slightly south of 40k subscribers at this moment. Featured in translated clips here, here, and here by Rezado Subs, Uruha collaborates frequently with multiple VTubers outside of the Lupinus Virtual Gamers, with the afore-featured Seto Miyako,Shirayuri Lily,, Kanae,, Shirayuki Reid,, and Yoruno Yui, and plays Apex Legends primarily. All in all, the Lupinus Virtual Gamers can be seen in stark contrast to the Hanayori Girls Dorm group that was featured last week. Whereas the Hanayori girls are much more casual in their streaming schedules and styles, and focus primarily on singing and more casual, laid-back games, the Lupinus Virtual Gamers are a group that is very much focused on First-Person Shooters. The four scrim together on a frequent basis, and squad up in 4-man squads in PUBG for collaboration streams, in which their comms are effective and informative (usually). If you like to watch people play games and chat, rather than chatting and playing games, the Lupinus girls are a good pick to consider.
Thanks and full credit goes to chinesemaple for writing this week's spotlight. If you have a VTuber you want featured for next week's spotlight or if you want to help write one, then feel free to comment about it below and we'll figure something out. Also here are the threads created by TheBlackJett over the past week introducing other VTubers:
2020.01.29 02:11 mavvamHow to opt out from NissanConnect?
Just received the following mail that basically say that Nissan can sell real time ("From time to time", like every 10 seconds we send data with 100mS resolution for the last 10 seconds) about everything you're doing ("your vehicle’s mileage and vehicle location" and "This information may include vehicle identification number (VIN), odometer readings and onboard diagnostics") to third parties ("data brokers, insurance carriers, marketing partners and other service providers", e.g. everybody). Haven't found instructions on how to opt-out from this thing nor which car functionality I would be missing. I only use the remote start of the climate control maybe 4 times a year and can definitely do without, not worth this egregious violation of privacy. Anybody knows more?

2019.07.13 11:48 Denys_PicardFeminists and Privilege of Exceptions
July 13 2019 (first posted on Wordpress in 2018, and on Tumblr this past June, flagged) I came to the conclusion that women are currently negotiating privileges against fundamental rights (to the advantage of a minority of people)…and this is a disaster for anyone not falling in the categories of “Historically victimized people” as described by ex-attorney general Eric Holder. It concerns the modern feminist culture of Empathy, Emotionalism, Intelligence, Rights, Delusion… (Note: I Originally wrote this article in late November 2017…I tried to publish it many times on my Wordpress account, it would not work. This was on my original blog dethinkxify.wordpress.com. I was finally able to publish in March of 2018. But rapidly, hackers erased all the Bibliography, which I had to recreate. I hope this time around activist hackers leave it alone.) This is a comment I formulated after reading an article in The Hill: “Trump risks hypocrisy charges with Franken attack” by Jonathan Easley (November 18 2017): I reprint here since my Wordpress accounts have never been indexed for purely political reasons and my Tumblr it account is being continuously flagged by feminists and is now restricted, which means blocked except for being harrased by Tumblr feminist employees… https://dethinkxify2.wordpress.com/2018/06/13/feminists-and-privilege-of-exceptions/ and https://dethinkxify.wordpress.com/about/ ______________________________________________________________ “…Trump…Called a Hypocrite…”. Who cares by now? Our whole leadership, including the press, are a bunch of hypocrites by refusing to include regular folks in the reality of power discussions. Power discussions which concern future fundamental rights of men. But around the table sits Feminists, DC politicians, Main Stream Media, some Power Elites…and they prepare, again, to decide our diminishing fates with one-sided bias unconstitutional legislation. We are witnessing a battle for fake righteousness, with your regular insincere feminists at the front line of this “mobbish” crowd. The first debate we need to have is: When will women and feminists stop using sexual misconduct allegations as an extortion/coercion tool? When? Not yet, obviously…because the inherent conflict of interest here in seeking the truth lies with an establishment of males (alpha males, bad expression, but I will clarify) being rewarded for continuously ceding status, rights, freedoms, liberties of regular males (beta males, idem as previously) of the middle and lower class…in exchange for getting bigger pay checks. It is by no chance that for the past 30 years, the Establishment, and women of all income groups, have seen persistent gains in their incomes, while middle class and lower class men have seen an imploding of their purchasing power. The Main Stream Media is so toxic…so hypocrite and so uneducated. Their only tool for convincing the audience of their project for which women are already sold, is the same old Emotional and Affective Empathy Propaganda where if you have “any sense of decency, you should be crying and repenting for all the horrible crimes men have committed against women for centuries..”. Yes, make me laugh… The scientific truth is very different according to social science. Women are bullies too, they abuse their power, they are violent being…and when the task is too big, they delegate the dirty physical job to their close allied thugs. Office work place is a competitive landscape. Yet women want to impose rules which will have the effect of constraining men in not being able to use competitive tools and skill in which they outperform. Pauhlus and Williamson (2002) cornered a theory of personalities which compose people of leadership, men and women alike. This theory is called the Dark Triad of Personality Traits. These specific traits are sub-clinical Narcissism, Psychopathy and Machiavelism. These were, and still are, somewhat taboo traits, so much so that even the scientific literature fails to often understand the basic premise of the theory. The theory stands because of the interdependent nature of these 3 traits, while much of the literature feeding on this theory still analyses circumstances using these traits independently. As independent traits, nothing is novel in understanding that someone showing a high score in one of these trait may be disagreeable, have shortcomings, be manipulative, etc…The Novelity of Pauhlus and Williamson was in describing these traits as interrelated. With this, the authors also demonstrated a surprising observation, that people with leadership features scored higher, on average, in all 3 traits simultaneously. Which means that on average each of these traits where higher than the average observed in a control sample. This was puzzling indeed, because these traits had mostly been put on the margin by institutions of morality, such as monotheism; and could hardly be accepted as being the corner-stone of leadership. Yet, 15 years later, it appears that the theory stands solid, and dominant characters (which the alpha epithet only briefly captures) score higher, on average, than controls on the Traits of Narcissism, Psychopathy and Machiavelism simultaneouly. Organizational hierarchies have been analyzed, been tested, with this filter, and it was observed that, effectively, the further you climb up the latter of authority, the higher you score on The Dark Triad Traits on average. Since these trait are associated with many negative behaviors, such as vanity, self-promotion, callousness, cruelty, dishonesty, manipulation, etc…it came as quite a shock. But even more interesting, is the fact that people high on Dark Triad traits score low on Emotional Empathy (Emotional or Affective Empathy are the same thing). And further, Dark Triad Traits have no correlation with Intelligence as captured by Intellectual Quotient (IQ). Which implies that dominant people need not have great IQs; and high IQs are not synonym of dominant personalities… Surprisingly, leadership requires credibility, since it is expressed in a social context; therefore, social performance is of importance. Social Performance may be measured by a combination of Cognitive intellectual skills, and Personality Traits. Personality traits are observed through performance of Emotional and Social skills. (I am abstaining, here, of using the expression Emotional Intelligence, because it is an inappropriate terminology. Emotional performance is part of the personality trait domain. The difficulty of, and inadequate terminology, in cornering a theory of Emotional Intelligence has had for result of creating an overly diversified incomplete curriculum on the subject with excessive feminist traps (matriarchal and communautarist propositions) and shortcomings. One of the principal trap is that of putting Agreeableness as a corner-stone of the theory.) Now, for great leaders to persist and be appreciated, or feared, the Dark Triad must be tempered and modulated by other factors. True, yet definitive consensus has not been reached in this dimension. Now, within the inventory of survival tools of evolved mammals, there is such a thing as Empathy. Its been the subject of much scientific research in the past 25 years, has been vulgarized, promoted but nevertheless still largely badly understood. Empathy must be understood as a genetically rooted endocrine reflex. It has evolved over millions of years and is a very sophisticated mechanism. But first, lets distinguish between two distinct forms of Empathy: Cognitive and Emotional (Affective) Empathy. While Emotional empathy has been largely described scientifically, cognitive empathy appears to suffer from a misunderstanding, and this may be due to the “empathy” epithet attached to it. Let the scientist describe both phenomenon: ” Purely cognitive empathy, also referred to as perspective taking, mentalizing, or Theory of Mind, concerns the capacity to comprehend the viewpoint and/or state of knowledge of another individual, even if this differs from one’s own. Emotional empathy concerns the emotional reactions of one individual to the observed experiences of another. Emotional empathy is a multifaceted and multilayered phenomenon which ranges from relatively simple processes such as emotional matching behaviour to more complex events which involve interaction between emotional and cognitive perspective taking systems.” (JL Edgar et al., 2012) “Over millions of years of evolution, efficient and manifold neurobiological mechanisms have evolved for differentiating hostile from hospitable stimuli and for organizing adaptive responses to these stimuli (Decety, 2010). This integrated set of neural systems is genetically hardwired to enable animals to evaluate and readily respond to threatening or nurturing, unpleasant or pleasant, appetitive or aversive stimuli using specific response patterns that are most adaptive to the particular species and environmental condition.” Decety and Svetlova (2012): Both systems are believed to be widely presents in mammals and are related to the complexity of organization which a family structure creates within life organism. In this context, males usually outperform females in cognitive empathy and females outperform males in emotional empathy. A parenthesis: – language is believed to be intimately tied to emotional empathy. And “baby-talk” (motherese, scientific term) is a universal language, it is present everywhere in the “human” kingdom. Motherese communicates in a manner where emotions are tuned with pitch, rhythm and tone instead of there usual evolved accent structure. In motherese, what is communicated is not the significance of the word directly, but the effort to create a future association in the child’s brain, and this using one of the best learning tools possible, repetition. Children respond innately to pitch and tone. In the primitive man, language was mostly thought by the female…this is one skill where emotional performance was a competitive advantage. Further, this “Motherese” interaction is also responsible for developing the spectrum of emotion in the infant. Emotions need learning and training, and biologically, the differentiation or specialization of sex re-leagued this role to females. This is why the female brain is preferentially wired, the connectome structure, for emotional empathy (Ingalhalikar et al., 2014). But recent changes in family organization tends to delegate emotional training in children to the pharmaceutical industry, school “law enforcement” and the internet, including video games… Living creatures whom can express the hormones linked to the reflex of emotional empathy have higher tone. “Oscillations of delta, theta, and alpha ranges could be found in all vertebrates but there is an important distinction between reptiles, lower mammals and humans in what frequency dominates in the scalp EEG. Alpha is the dominant frequency in adult humans, while theta dominates in the EEG of lower mammals (Sainsbury, 1998) and delta in the reptilian EEG (Gaztelu et al., 1991; Gonzalez et al., 1999).” As brain wave oscillations of the Beta frequency are highly active in mammals, they are very low in reptilian. Langard et al. (2006) explains, concerning an empathic test on mice: ‘”our findings are consistent with the perception-action model of empathy proposed by Preston and de Waal (1), both in the automatic priming of somatic responses in a state similar to that of the attended object and in the modulating effects of familiarity and similarity of experience between subject and object.” as observed under the following conditions: “…Mice tested in dyads and given an identical noxious stimulus displayed increased pain behaviors with statistically greater co-occurrence, effects dependent on visual observation. When familiar mice were given noxious stimuli of different intensities, their pain behavior was influenced by their neighbor’s status bidirectionally. Finally, observation of a cage-mate in pain altered pain sensitivity of an entirely different modality, suggesting that nociceptive mechanisms in general are sensitized.” This was a step forward in debunking the pretentious belief that only humans, being God’s masterpiece according to Christians, had Empathy. And contrary to popular belief, Empathy is not a moral construct, but a biological survival reflex. In the fight or flight behavioral choice, cognitive empathy is the first mechanism to be neuro-alerted. It quickly determines if a new set of information possess a threat or opportunity (e.g. for food) or necessitates an action of protection or collaboration. It then either, respectively switches to either the cruel, sadistic, aggressive spectrum, or to the Emotional Empathy reflex. A problem with the recent societal culture of feminism, the current “cultural revolution”, is the risky proposition of offering overly redundant experiences of Emotional Empathy to the general population through tools such as News Television media, where the audience is being continuously taxed along Emotional Reflexes, so as to effect Mass Emotional Empathy Training…it is destructive to the balance of the brain, it creates a state, which psychologists refer to as “heightened emotional instability”. We are switching from a Cognitive IQ based civilization to an Emotional driven civilization. Yet, abuse of the affective spectrum is very useful as a strategy of mind control. It is a preferred tool of female leadership, females whom outperforms males in the Emotional and Narcissistic spectrum. In a context of competition between women, a status challenge, women will rarely confront. Competition potential outcomes are usually quickly determined on site, and interaction avoided with females most often surrendering to the dominant female. Then, consensus is created by a repertoire of mimicry, which is related to emotionalism, mimicry, emotional empathy. Women’s “status seeking competitive strategies” are mainly, according to Joyce F Benenson (2013) : “From early childhood onward, girls compete using strategies that minimize the risk of retaliation and reduce the strength of other girls. Girls’ competitive strategies include avoiding direct interference with another girl’s goals, disguising competition, competing overtly only from a position of high status in the community, enforcing equality within the female community and socially excluding other girls.” Further, Tracy Vaillancourt (2013): “Indirect aggression includes behaviours such as criticizing a competitor’s appearance, spreading rumours about a person’s sexual behaviour and social exclusion. Human females have a particular proclivity for using indirect aggression, which is typically directed at other females, especially attractive and sexually available females, in the context of intrasexual competition for mates. Indirect aggression is an effective intrasexual competition strategy. It is associated with a diminished willingness to compete on the part of victims and with greater dating and sexual behaviour among those who perpetrate the aggression.” As for the kind of aggression women of higher sub-clinical psychopathic intensity such as females in positions of authority, Ana Seara-Cardoso, Helene Dolberg, Craig Neumann, Jonathan P. Roiser, Essi Viding (2013) propose: "Research so far indicates that emotional and personality correlates of psychopathy such as glibness, grandiosity, lack of empathic concern are akin across genders, but similarities in behavioral correlates, such as criminal behavior and type of aggression, seem to be less consistent (see Verona & Vitale, 2006, for a review). It has been suggested that differences found across genders are mainly differential expressions of the same underlying construct (Nicholls & Petrila, 2005), and that the same personality traits may confer risk for different forms of behavior for women versus men (Verona, Sprague, & Javdani, 2012)". Psychology has created two main sub-groups of psychopaths, those which are characterized as operating Instrumental Violence (Group 1) and those whom uses Reactive Violence (Group 2). Instrumental violence is manipulative and indirect, while reactive violence is obviously direct and confrontational. Women score higher at instrumental violence than men. And, need I remind, people in positions of authority, dominant characters, both females and males, score higher than average on The Dark Triad traits of personality. Need I recall the reader of the Center for Disease Control (CDC) analysis, whose own data, determined, against popular beliefs, that women are violent in partner relationships, and that they are more often, than men, the first instigators of physical aggravated assault against their partner. That female bisexual persons are more violent in partner relationships than either heterosexual, or exclusively homosexual, men. Against the backdrop of the Main Stream Media and Washington DC attempting to portray females as inoffensive, peaceful, loving caring beings incapable of violence and never competitive but only cooperative…It should be difficult to ignore that the last few paragraphs, based on scientific literature, may bring down the Leadership proposed Em-pathetically forcefully induced naive conception of women as innocent beings in need of persistent protection… for Feminists who pretend they want to destroy the condescending values of Patriarchy, it appears a Paradox to call for laws of exception for their sex all the time. Lastly, one must make himself familiar, if at least it has not already intuitively been understood, that all status dominance challenge carry sexual connotations, or undertones, as indirect as they may be. Dominance in human relationships always has a sexual dominance/submission dimension…if this point is neglected in decision-making and analysis of the workplace environment, it is a great mistake. Are all women leaders monsters? No, of course not. But nor are all men leaders. But Feminist (as a socio-political proposition) leadership is Toxic. And what about regular male employees who score average on psychological traits of the Dark Triad, males who don’t carry above normal dominant features but can be very competent in their field, are they also ALL monsters? So why address the problem of harassment, aggression in the office/work place as a prevalent and “male only” initiated model. Surprisingly, in reality, meaning out of the scope of the fictional construct of women on TV and other media, women are attracted preferably to men who are both more narcissistic and more dishonest than average…this is true when they either seek a mate, or someone to associate for other endeavors, such as business associations. Narcissism and dishonesty are characteristics where leaders, men and women, outperform the general population. This should assist in anticipating that the office will continue to have male leaders, or women leaders, who score high on the Dark Triad Traits. What are women teaching these latest generation of men leaders…how to better camouflage their personality traits. In the highly competitive field of finance, both women and men with strong dominant personality profiles excelled in deception during the 2000 decade of real estate and financial debacle. Therefore, in the Emotional Empathy Training movements they are two distinct yet complementary routes: one has as its principal goal to modify not the essence of male competitiveness, with its core in psychopathy, in terms of callousness, or glibness, etc…but to modify the appearance of this trait by expressing it in a more feminine way, meaning indirectly. This is easy, since people with higher Emotional/social skills are better actors…that is they can more easily fake emotions. So, in fact, these are just acting classes, which the new generation of male leaders are happy to participate in. Secondly, for non-leader males, the somewhat “beta” non-dominant profile males, Emotional Empathy Training is simply classes in total submissiveness, where anything which could be disagreeably perceived by any women, in or out of context, must be censured so “beta” females can increase their level of abusive narcissistic delusional elation and over-confidence in the work place. Because feminists are not revolutionaries, as they often promote themselves, but encrusted in the leadership, and submit to authority more easily then men,…they are the best tool for the upper class, establishment and leadership to maintain and consolidate their position of hegemony. Because I, for one, know very well that the current spectacle is of the same infected breed as that of “Hate laws”…where, in this case, the target of constraining behavioral laws that will be abusive will not really be aimed at the high hierarchical individuals who could abuse their power, but the regular male employee who has never bothered anyone, but will now be obligated to demonstrate absolute submissiveness to the Office PC Police…that is the reality, this is what awaits us, yet again. Paradoxically, women in the hierarchy will often tolerate sexual misconduct in the office from dominant males in the organization as long as it benefits them and the organization…even if there is an innocent victim (male or female), call it collateral damage, once in a while…that is the “pragmatism” of female leadership…as is Feminist Mob Justice. And, incredibly, in this whole discourse, not one bit of attention was given to women aggressors, whether their victims were males or females…yes, incredible. But it’s not the first time that the Main Stream Media and Washington DC betrays us males. All of you should read the Canadian Judge’s ruling in a recent Canadian case, COURT FILE No.: Toronto 4817 998 15-75006437 : Her Majesty The Queen Vs Jian Ghomeshi. In front of the worst of accusations, Ghomeshi was hanged in public, with women newscasters vomiting righteousness over Canadian Television programming for hours on end. Yet, the conclusion of the Trial judge was that, in the end, the witnesses had no credibility. Yet, feminists went on saying it was again an injustice and they stood by for all the “women victims of male sexual violence…”. In the debate of sexual misconduct, feminists have lost all credibility, and no one in our leadership is making any intelligent contribution in this exchange either. Women have to start understanding who they really are, and how they evolve in social contexts; male leadership has to stop trying to please feminists by surrendering fundamental rights of men and spoiling women with unjust legislation, and financial bubbles, bias against men. In Canada, the justice system was demonstrated, by a scientific research, to show a 98% positive bias towards women (a sample of research had a window of 65 to 98% bias towards women), yet, to feminists, this is not enough, they want more for women…What does this tell you in terms of genetically rooted delusional intensity, of psychological balance, in terms of judgement and fairness of women… In the current political “debate” over the allegations of sexual “misconduct” of a Federal Senate seat, the most zealous critics have expressed that “…the allegations alone are serious enough that the Candidate should never be allowed to be a servant of the “People”…”…This is the new Feminist Mob Justice at its best…is this where President Trump wants to lead us?…satisfy feminists so he can get all the goodies he wants, like his irresponsible tax bill, passed? Laws meant to castrate men who have done nothing wrong, and won’t, by incompetent, unconstitutional laws that will regulate work place dynamics with a 100% positive bias towards women, because, in some cases, some men have acted irresponsibly, or sometimes illegally, abused their power. What about women? They never commit aggression, they never abuse their power, they never bully in a work environment…? I am sure of that, as they are no female pedophiles, I guess, and no maternal infanticides, and no Female pimps, rapists, criminal offenders…no women involved in child pornography rings…No, not in our world…Not in America, Not in the great insightful eyes of the Main Stream Media…women are all “Good, naive and innocent…and need Super Males, Super Cops, to protect them…”.
Once in a while, one comes across a small jewel in Academia, and if Paulhus and Williams work is Monumental, Isabelle Engeler and Priya Raghubir piece in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology: Do men Overestimate or Women under-report Their Sexual Intentions? (2017) is a must, and unavoidable if one has the ambition to reform the workplace. It will help understand miscommunications, mis-signalling, miscues and mis-interpretation between the sexes in the context of workplace sexual misconduct and sexual interpersonal interactions. This text unveils some core mechanisms and informs anyone with the goal to modify the work environment in a manner fair to all.The text comes to the conclusion, amongst other observations, that under their testing conditions, that both men and women underreport their own sexual intentions, that men overestimate women’s sexual intentions and women underestimate men’s sexual intentions…this alone is enough to warrant work place “reformers” attention. Is this due to delusional mechanisms, social desirability bias, or brain structures misaligned communication features…the door is open. But, in this context, an intelligent behaviour is not blaming the other party for misgivings and shortcomings, finger pointing and all; but rather trying to understand more deeply what could be at the source of frequent “misfiring” social performance, since in ideal world, communication should have no frictional bias.Let’s make a short example, without blaming one party over the other, without pushing responsibility on one side more than on the other.Two co-workers, one man and one woman, are sent on a project abroad. They only know each other superficially, have not had the opportunity to really work together except for short group meetings, etc…they know each other from a distance, but have had an effect on each other. He has found he appealing, intelligent , witty, etc…she has found he presents himself well, looks serious, responsible, dedicated, maybe ambitious, but in a good way.Now, during their travel, one night after work, to celebrate their on-going business success, which got them to develop quickly a good complicity, trusty relationship, they are efficient and complementary. They decide to go to a nice restaurant with a very relaxed atmosphere, a beautiful terrace with a beautiful view, they drink a little bit, and she starts to confide on her personal life. She is more telling than inquisitive, already knows he is single, while she is married. She believe this guy is a great candidate for a business friendship. She starts to elaborate about her own marriage difficulties, though she doesn’t have children yet, the discussion starts with humour and slips in more confident terms…and then “woops”, out of nowhere, in a moment of laughter, she confides she has not had sex with her husband for two months… That something is not going right with her husband. Her only intention is to have a good hearing ear, to relax and this guy looks trustworthy, etc…But he may well interpret this intimate comment as something else, especially since he did find her attractive.And now, let’s imagine, that when they leave the restaurant, she helps him put his coat on, and as he slips his arms into the sleeves, she gives him a warm and affectionate tap on the arms while she is behind him. Nothing more…just a sign she feels good, relax…Yet, they have drank a bit , he feels good also, and has liked his evening, is being increasingly seduced by this women, who has done nothing else but treat him as a friend…They go to the hotel, and doing so, they go on talking, confiding…and she increasingly looks at him in the eyes, as to get affirmation of their new found complicity, their new friendship, she feels she has established trust. Then, at the door of her room, they go on talking a bit…and as they get ready to go there on way, to say goodnight, he just gets closer and kiss her on the mouth. Then the nightmare begins, she freezes, is shocked, surprised, says nothing…gets into her room, closes the door and suddenly feels betrayed…READ THE ARTICLE.
The work place backlash, which also affects negatively a majority of men, and creates negative spillover’s over all of society is principally due to “Emotional Intelligence”, an inadequate scientific theory with misleading terminology, has been increasingly and dominantly used as the main hiring candidate criteria for employment. While this may create a more “Agreeable” work environment for women, it is at the source of increasing fraudulent and toxic activity and behavior in the workplace. Here, take the time to read : “Will get fooled again: Emotionally intelligent people are easily duped by high-stakes deceivers”; by Alysha Baker, Leanne ten Brinke and Stephen Porter (2012);Legal and Criminological Psychology. The most intriguing conclusion of this work, is that people with Higher Emotional/social skills as captured by an Social Ability psychological test have demonstrated a very poor capacity to detect deceit, yet have a greater ability to deceive…Most feminists would either refute this scientific affirmation, and others may call it a paradox; yet when one knows women, this makes perfect sense, it is self-evident. May I remind you, if you suffer from some kind of personality trait naiveté, that women, on average, score higher than men in Emotional skill/ability. You want to really talk about these matters, I am up to the challenge. You want to get ready…go to social science class, but avoid anything which is written by either a female or male feminist, because it is not science, nor is the theory of Emotional intelligence. Read about status seeking, psychological personality traits (especially the work of L. Paulhus: The Dark Triad Traits, The Dark Tetrad Traits). Debunk the Emotional Intelligence crap. Emotions are an endocrine evolution system. They give tone to actions and metabolisms. They are tied to personality traits. They do affect performance, and some people do show greater skills at controlling, moderating, utilizing their own emotions and those of others, but this is a skill, it is not intelligence. Performance is the result of a set of Intellectual factors captured by IQ and emotional and social skills captured by personality traits. Strong leaders are characterized by high performance in taboo personality traits such as sub-clinical Narcissism, Psychopathy, Machiavelism and even Sadism…leaders, male and female alike, have a good look at yourselves in the mirror before climbing on the moral bandwagon! Debunk this view that women are always victims and men always predators…it’s the biggest of lies…stop being retarded. And don’t pass corrupted unjust new laws (to manage the work space) for a subject your delusional reflexes prevents you from understanding at all, but your political ambitions guides you to.

[СТЕЖТЕ за ОНОВЛЕННЯМИ] Шановні читачі. Хочу скористатися нагодою звернутися до всіх небайдужих до України людей, що читають мій пост. Ми мусимо визнати той факт, що наша держава не впоралася з упровадженням інформаційної політики, яка б дозволяла якомога більшій частині людей - як всередині країни, так і за її межами - розуміти, що в ній та навколо неї відбувається, і яка б стимулювала просування української позиції у світі. Але треба також пам'ятати, що інформаційна політика - це не тільки одне з головних завдань держави з убезпечення її та її громадян, це також наша з вами активність. Одним зі способів створення та постійного підтримування умов для існування інформаційної безпеки, як складової інформаційної політики, є поширення та популяризація інформації, яка допоможе людям знати правду, думати та аналізувати і яка протидіятиме ворожій інформаційній експансії. Гадаю, ви погодитеся, що, коли вороги вже дихають у спину, бездіяльність має йти в небуття. І прикладом прояву активних дій є цей пост. Він ознайомить вас із певними джерелами, про які ви можливо ніколи не чули або на які я раджу звернути вашу увагу. Сподіваюся на ваше розуміння важливості інформації, що знаходиться внизу. ********\* ******* Історія ******\* ******* Інформаційна безпека, Політика та Аналітика ******\* ******* Захист та вдосконалення української, кримськотатарської та русинської мов і культур ******\* ******* Вивчення іноземних мов ******\* ********\* ****\* *** Історія **\* ****\* 1) Володимир Білінський: "Країна Моксель, або Московія" (том 1, том 2, том 3), "Москва Ординська" (том 1, том 2), "Україна-Русь" (том 1, том 2, том 3) - історія України та її сусідів.

Decentralized applications (dApps) are applications that run on a P2P network of computers rather than a single computer. Decentralized Applications don’t have a central server and therefore no one can control or modify or even delete the database. Since it has nothing like any central server, all the data are distributed throughout the network of the blockchain. Also, the source code is open for all. Decentralized applications are stored on and executed by a Blockchain system. When we talk of something being decentralized, it simply means that it is not owned, controlled or managed by a single person or authority. Each DApp consists of self-executing code (aka smart contracts), that define the functionality of the application. DApps are act as the bridge that enable the interaction with blockchain-based networks from an end-user perspective. BENEFITS OF DApp 1) DApps mainly employ cryptocurrencies as the built-in medium of exchange. As a result, dApps could potentially dramatically boost the mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies by exposing more people to it. 2) It can theoretically, facilitate completely censorship resistant applications. As a result, it can be thought of as an application which hands back control to its users. Any changes to the dApps can only be performed through consensus. 3) Users of decentralized applications enjoy a far more distributed approach. Any computation needed is done at different nodes, none of these nodes are instructing the other nodes. As a result, decentralized applications will not theoretically need any sort of downtime hence eliminating the need for a single entity Some of the main attributes of Dapp are the following ;

I was messing about in my camp when Death From Above came up on the screen, so I finished what I was doing, jumped in my power armour on and fast travelled in. I got there just in time and started snapping- caught it from the moment you could see the nuke in the sky to just after this picture (the best of the set). Honestly, I love the photo mode in this game. I've got so many cool snaps of my partner and I playing and it's awesome to scroll back through them. http://imgur.com/a/JCUlUcu

2018.11.20 03:21 toddemaher1The Blockchain Game Alliance
The Blockchain Game Alliance Blockchain tech is slowly catching on in the mainstream, and there are lots of people out there who are very curious about this new technology. Online searches pertaining to the blockchain have gone up nearly 250%, and more and more people are becoming informed about this exciting technology. But there’s one community of people who are particularly plugged in to the tech world and can experience real benefits from the blockchain: online gamers. Block and Chain Game Studios recognizes that gamers are the perfect group to help others understand the benefits of blockchain technology. But we can’t be alone in reaching such an obvious conclusion – and of course, we aren’t. Bringing the Blockchain to Gaming There are several benefits that blockchain can offer for gamers. The big ones are fairness and transparency, as blockchain technology eliminates the need for a third party in online transactions. Additionally, blockchain tech offers important benefits for online privacy, authentication, and security. In fact, the blockchain has become such a popular topic among the gaming industry that a group of gaming companies founded the Blockchain Game Alliance earlier this year. The Alliance was announced at the Blockchain Game summit in Lyon, France in September. The Alliance is composed of French gaming giant Ubisoft, as well as a suite of other influential companies like Alto, Gimli, Fig, Ultra, B2Expand, ConsenSys, Everdreamsoft and Enjin. The Alliance is focusing on integrating blockchain tech and creating common practices and standards for blockchain use among gaming companies. According to Nicolas Gilot, co-CEO of Alliance member Ultra, the Blockchain Game Alliance will “democratize blockchain within the gaming industry.” The Alliance will bring together these gaming giants to discuss how to use blockchain tech positively in the gaming industry. Stakeholders are invited to an open meeting by the Alliance to look at studies that show new ways to implement this technology into the development of video games. For example, Ubisoft is working on partnering up with Google to develop a cloud gaming system. New trials and projects conducted by Alliance members – as well as the fresh faces in blockchain gaming - will assist in mainstreaming blockchain and cryptocurrency technology. Facilitating Tech Adoption Through Gaming The video game industry has always been effective at encouraging the mainstream adoption of new virtual experiences, and it will prove critical in building industry practices and for using blockchain technology in entertainment. As a result, the gaming industry will play an important part in mainstream adoption of blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. The formation of the Blockchain Gaming Alliance is a meaningful step in the right direction, but there’s still a far way to go. The utilization of blockchain technology is becoming more popular throughout the gaming industry, and big gaming companies like Ubisoft are trying to place themselves ahead of the rest of the market. But with influential companies such as Ubisoft, Microsoft and Sony embracing blockchain, how much longer will it before corporations gobble up all of the new opportunities this technology has to offer?

News @ Block & Chain Marketing for Blockfight and Draggin’ Dragons continued in high gear, with several features on our social media and partner platforms. This week, we also completed a low-friction onboarding flow for our games, which allows Halo Platform wallet holders to go straight into our games and use their Featherlite wallets to play. No more usernames and passwords to remember! Last week, we introduced the backstory for Blockfight and explained how all of the grotesque beings came to inhabit this planet and became the puppets of their overlords. This week we started to introduce the monsters on our forum and social media, starting with the dastardly Prince Panilio: 📷 In Draggin’ Dragons, we’ve built immersive, interactive environments. Watch dragons zoom over and under environment objects in their race to victory. Lootlift Lane, a track inside of a long lost Egyptian pyramid, is a great example of one such track. 📷 We also completed the Player Profile and Owner’s Paddock, where you can see all of the dragons you’ve ever owned and bask in your many victories! 📷📷 Look for Blockfight and Draggin’ Dragons open Beta to launch later in November! Decimated News 📷 Our friends at Fracture Labs have been very busy building their amazing post apocalyptic MMO. So much so that we are going to feature their major updates in our newsletters going forward. In fact, we’re publishing this week’s newsletter early to let everyone know that the Fracture Labs team are doing an interview in AltspaceVR this Friday at 8pm Central European Time (11:00 am to 12:00 PM PST). Click here to learn more: https://facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=567120730413441&id=457143298077852 If you don’t have time to watch the VR presentation and just want to see what’s new with Decimated, you can see the latest news along with their latest game trailer here: https://medium.com/@fracturelabs/a-multiplayer-online-survival-game-powered-by-blockchain-interview-with-stephen-arnold-the-ceo-f05950eabfb5 Game Maker’s Corner Devin Seto: Head of Games While working at Electronic Arts, I had the opportunity to teach part-time at the Vancouver Film School. The head of the Game Design program was an EA Alum (former Development Director for the NHL Hockey Franchise) and he liked to bring teachers in who worked in the industry so students could understand what game making was really like. Many people in my class (and since) have asked the question: How do I get into the games industry? Well, you can spend $50K+ plus in a game design program like that one and it might help. I would say roughly 10% of my students ended up in the industry long-term. And some companies still provide the “QA Opportunity”, where you can be hired as a contract Tester and after many long shifts and cutthroat competition, someone may notice you and maybe they’ll give you an opportunity. But let’s face it, getting into game development is hard. It’s a smaller world than you may think and people tend to hire game makers they’ve worked with before (myself included with the likes of Harold, Michelle, Ali, and Todd). Combine that with the smaller teams needed to build today’s mobile and casual games and the opportunities are fewer and farther between. Thankfully, the same tools and tech that allow for easier game development are available to anybody and free tutorials are all over the web. I often say to people “you and I could go into my basement this afternoon and start making a game”, then we can publish it on the app store and market it on social media and it just might be a hit! And thanks to the many review sites and platform rating systems out there, we can easily see how well a game is received. Nowadays, when I want to find a talented game maker, and my personal network isn’t yielding the desired results, I look for freelance game makers. I play their games and look at their ratings. I am rarely disappointed with what I encounter, as our two very talented game makers Adam and Anh will demonstrate. In the News What’s hot in gaming, on and off the blockchain? Here’s where you find out! https://bitcoinexchangeguide.com/ethereum-blockchain-game-developer-reveals-the-thrills-of-creating-his-first-dapp/ - Building a DApp on Ethereum is a challenge that many developers have not faced before. One such developer is Michael J. Cohen, who is a front-end developer in NYC. He spent the summer creating a Dapp. The Dapp was a fantasy football game known as Blockgame. He has now decided to share his journey with the world. B&C: Thanks to open sourced blockchains like Ethereum’s and well, ours, independent game makers can dive in and build really good games on the blockchain. It’s projects like this one B&C likes to work with because indie game makers seldom think of things like community management, product support, low friction economies and viral marketing when building their games. As we mentioned when we published our whitepaper, we seek to find passionate, talented indie game makers and provide a platform for them to showcase their craft and launch the games of their dreams.

Video From LaserBeam with 5.5 million subscribers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JW2BFweEdpo After he Exposed 1 channel they keep changing their name over and over and over to hopefully prevent that Youtube will suspend them. LaserBeam says that Youtube refuse to listen to a huge Youtube channel on issues like this probably because... "Supreme" / Pixel boom makes Youtube TONS of money. This is what ALL FORTNITE COMPILATION CHANNELS. Do we really need another #Elsagate to get Youtube to do something? They added a system to demonitize channels for duplication, stealing etc.. But they ignore Compilation channels for some reason? Probably because their bot can't identify clips used after each other as stolen videos? Let's say that they don't monetize any content at all, It's ALL content ID matched videos as some of you want to think. That still doesn't explain why they are in the Youtube Partner Program. How can you know that they are in the Youtube Partner Program? Because videos containing a update from them without any stolen clips are monetized, Their livestreams are monetized with a Youtube donation button. All of these are signs of the channel being in the Youtube Partner Program, Their entire channel is duplication so why should they even be in the Youtube Partner Program? Here is a bunch of Twitch compilation channels making a few grand a month by just stealing content.
What I mean with this is that Youtube target creators, cringe or not to either demonitize entire channels for various reason, Suspend them for a bot issue etc. But Compilation channels are promoted and just fine for Youtube? "If they are not fine with it they can just DMCA it". Sometimes yes, that works. For example when a YOUTUBER suffer from stealing then can DMCA it, https://www.youtube.com/useAvxry is against this as stated, It's stealing content to get money. If he finds out that his content are being reuploaded he dmca it. Doesn't matter if the clip is 10 second or 10 minutes. I created another post on this when I had been in contact with multiple Twitch streamers that don't use Youtube: /youtube/comments/8whd1t/just_demonitize_fortnite_funny_1000000/ TeamYouTube_J
