Which media personalities do you think are sociopaths?

Rush Limbaugh, obviously

Nancy Grace

I hate to say it, but Keith Olbermann

Sean Hannity I'm iffy on, because if he actually BELIEVED the things he says, then he technically wouldn't be a sociopath. Limbaugh doesn't believe most of the shit he says, but he says it anyway because he knows who his audience is.

Possibly Matt Lauer

Barbara Walters (have you seen how hostile she has been to Joy Behar lately?----no one quits Barbara!!!!!)

Not sure if she's technically a media personality, but Nikki Finke.

Bill O'Reilly

You are confusing sociopaths with narcissists.

by Anonymousreply 405/07/2013

What about Bill Hemmer, the way he transitioned so easily from CNN to Fox?

by Anonymousreply 505/07/2013

All sociopaths are by definition narcissists.

by Anonymousreply 605/07/2013

No, r6.

Narcissists lack empathy just as sociopaths do, but narcissists have strong emotions where sociopaths don't.

R4, what's the difference?

by Anonymousreply 805/07/2013

A sociopath is a malignant narcissist.

by Anonymousreply 905/07/2013

Possibly r6, but all narcissists aren't sociopaths. Go to the Venn diagram an look at the crescent on the right which are the narcissist-non-sociopaths...

Take a gander at the DSM-IV.

Or are you simply passive aggressive?

I never said all narcissists are sociopaths. I said all sociopaths are narcissists.

Aren't we a pedantic little bitch.

Let me guess; you frequently "correct" others to mask your insecurity about your own lack of intelligence.

Wolf Blitzer

Glenn Beck

Like "self loathing" the word sociopath is used so often and so often incorrectly here, it has lost all meaning.

Ann Curry

All of them

Ann Coulter

r6/r11 you are so sad.

You should have taken better notes in therapy.

by Anonymousreply 1705/08/2013

Matt Lauer

by Anonymousreply 1805/08/2013

It might be easier to generate an exception list.

by Anonymousreply 1905/08/2013

Matt Laurer is not a sociopath, and neither is Barbara Walters. Sheesh.
