Is Hillary a Sociopath or a Psychopath?

by Zack Anderson, June 28, 2016

The better question is, is Hillary Clinton a Sociopath or Psychopath?

Sociopaths tend to be nervous and easily agitated. They are volatile and prone to emotional outbursts, including fits of rage. They are likely to be uneducated and live on the fringes of society, unable to hold down a steady job or stay in one place for very long. It is difficult but not impossible for sociopaths to form attachments with others. Many sociopaths are able to form an attachment to a particular individual or group, although they have no regard for society in general or its rules. In the eyes of others, sociopaths will appear to be very disturbed. Any crimes committed by a sociopath, including murder, will tend to be haphazard, disorganized and spontaneous rather than planned.

Psychopaths, on the other hand, are unable to form emotional attachments or feel real empathy with others, although they often have disarming or even charming personalities. Psychopaths are very manipulative and can easily gain people’s trust. They learn to mimic emotions, despite their inability to actually feel them, and will appear normal to unsuspecting people. Psychopaths are often well educated and hold steady jobs. Some are so good at manipulation and mimicry that they have families and other long-term relationships without those around them ever suspecting their true nature.

    She and her husband–a serial rapist who bites his victims, are both psychopaths.

    Is Hillary a sociopath or a psychopath? Yes. Or perhaps just a power-mad, driven politician who happens to be female and can easily pull the wool over the eyes of other women. As Sec. of State she went to Morocco, flying in with her own motorcade on the plane. For her “security” nearly the whole country was shut down, the day was cancelled. A lot of people, including American liberals, were pissed off. The egos on these people in power are past the point of being just plain ridiculous.

    ‘Many Republicans have endorsed her. It could be because GOP stalwarts are terrified of Donald Trump. Or it could be that her policies align with theirs’

    I HAD READ this article, in the Guardian, and walked away feeling it was not as anti-Hillary as I thought, going in. Also, what in the world does psychopathology have to do with this article in the Guardian?

      Psychopathology is fair game when the subject is so overbearingly publicized and promoted. When you’re that famous, anything goes. And HRC most certainly does not deserve special treatment in that area.

      The Clintons’ money and power has bailed their sorry asses out of many situations that would have sent the average person to prison for a long time.

      Embezzlement, non-investments that earned them tens of thousands of dollars, violations of laws by the Clinton Foundation, and Bill’s serial rapes–to name just a few.

      William Zanzinger was not the only felon that never served time.

      I can forgive ignorance. But aggressive ignorance is harder to pardon.

    Yes, the article is typical neo-liberal wishy wash… attempting to have a backbone but perhaps watered down by the editors of the once mighty Guardian, the corpse of Corbyn’s ghost, and Brexit supporters who’ve had enough of stock market tickers and grave bimbos in designer tit jobs telling them what to think, when to think it, and never mind the corporate oligarchy shoving “candidates” like Hillary and the Donald up our grudging arses with nothing but a dab of HBO’s fall lineup for lubricant and coupons for Mrs. Clinton’s pap schmear Dem Central Committee Noah’s Bagel’s Buy Two Candidates Get One Rainbow Colored Benghazi Toy Terrorist…

    Okay, maybe I’ve had enough coffee today. But in a sane and rational world Hillary would be picking up trash (ideally from my kitchen floor), the Donald would be trimming Shetland hooves, and Bernie wouldn’t roll over and play doughnut for the Neo-Fascist Dems, like a good gluten-free robot with sprinkles of shit-stained betrayal. The chickens and chickenhawks are coming home to roost, but first they circle overhead to crap down our grateful and gullible throats as long as they can, perversions of humanity that they are…

      And I will add, if you will permit me to, that Jill Stein would be elected by an ecstatic populace grateful for a candidate that is qualified to do more than pick up the garbage in your kitchen or trimming hooves.

        But she wasn’t, was she (elected, preferred, supported)? She being soo influencial, so well educated, so privileged, so popular? Why wasn’t she able to translate all of that privilege into a viable venue for her campaign? Oh, so, the system is rigged, say you. Is that your excuse?

    YEAH, enough coffee will make you hallucinate.
    Where do you think Mr. Sanders, the Pontiff, got his initial money to afford a campaign, before he started hiding the money in pie charts? Are you that naive? AND, he took PAC money, too! Hay, we all know what’s not working, what the problems are. Does monsieur the Pontiff have any bipartisan support, money (yeah, dinero), or the wherewithal to accomplish any of the changes We The People are calling for? Not without Hillary.

    I’ve exceeded my allotted number of posts.
    This will be my last for today.

    I’d like to know: What Hillary Clinton has ever done—besides being born a woman, that would merit voting for her for President?

    Jill Stein was not allowed to participate in the debates. Debates used to be managed by The League of Women Voters, but are now managed by the parties. I do not blame Hillary Clinton’s people for excluding Doctor Stein from the debates. The contrast between the two women could not be greater. One is a medical doctor; the other was a bag lady for her concubine when he was the governor of Arkansas.

    Of course, there are some women who intellectually never got beyond the eighth grade and who resent educated, accomplished people. Most would see Dr. Stein as a superior candidate and a superior human being—if they were allowed to see her and hear her.

      She’s on you tube for the world to see, and repeat. My youngest daughter, an R.N., would not become a doctor, if you paid her.

    You are absolutely wrong for you mixed up the words. Psychopaths have the characteristics of violent tendencies and irritable behavior whereas sociopaths lack genuine emotion and empathy. This really irritates me as you probably have thousands of people reading this misinformation. You obviously have no idea what you’re talking about if you can’t distinguish between two subjects that you, yourself, are writing about.

    Neurotics build castles in the air. Psychotics live in them. Psychiatrists collect the rent.

      A neurotic person would be the least likely to build a castle in the air because, they, precisely, lack the ability to relax and laugh at themselves. They take life too seriously. Therefore, your formula would be no longer.
      Let me add that a person experiencing psychosis could not, and would not, be confined behind walls.

    Here’s what the dictionary says. Wouldn’t want either in a position of importance.

    noun

    • informal an unstable and aggressive person: schoolyard psychopaths will gather around a fight to encourage the combatants.
