    Default Is George Zimmerman a Sociopath?

    Set aside your bias for 10 minutes.. and consider the possibility. Set aside the smokescreen of politics and race.. Remember Zimmerman's claim the Trayvon tried to "kill him".

    http://shawnsjames.blogspot.com/2012...sociopath.html

    Excerpt:

    Sociopaths are often extremely difficult to identify. The insidious ways that they manipulate and abuse individuals and communities are often undetectable to the average person. Usually it takes a psychiatric professional to reveal them and their danger to society.


    There is a clear sociopathic pattern to George Zimmerman’s behavior. An examination of the facts will detail how depraved he is.


    George Zimmerman sought to control the Florida gated community he lived in. Using a veneer of safety and community he imposed himself as Neighborhood Watch Captain.


    On the surface it seemed like he was doing a noble thing protecting the community. But sociopaths often do things that appear good on the outside but are have more sinister ulterior motives behind them.


    Zimmerman took advantage of people’s good nature by presenting himself as someone concerned with the neighborhoods safety. But it was a power grab so he could control the residents of that gated community.


    By imposing himself as the Neighborhood Watch Captain, Zimmerman showed little empathy or regard for others. A person concerned about protecting the community usually involves the community and considers the feelings of others. They usually let things come to a vote and allow others to help.


    However, by asserting his authority over that Florida gated community Zimmerman clearly showed his soiciopathic need for power and control. Like most sociopaths he took power without regard for the other residents’ consideration.


    In his position of pseudo authority, Zimmerman saw himself as the law. Moreover, he saw himself above the law. A one-man judge, jury and executioner.


    A person concerned with community would have no need to carry a firearm doing these duties. But Zimmerman believing himself to be above the law needed a weapon to enforce his authority.


    On the surface, George Zimmerman pretended to support law enforcement in his neighborhood watch. But in reality he felt contempt for law enforcement and the threat of their interference in ruling his fiefdom.


    This contempt was expressed passive-aggressive way Zimmerman made over 50 911 calls while on his neighborhood watch. On the surface it looked like he was deeply concerned for his community. But in actuality he was attempting to weaken the resolve of law enforcement so they wouldn’t take calls to that part of the community seriously. This way he could have more control over the residents.


    Like most sociopaths, George Zimmerman has no regard for law enforcement. In the past he has assaulted police officers, a clear sign of his indifference and disregard of authority or anyone that doesn’t fit within his locus of control.


    And in the case of Trayvon Martin, he disregarded a 911 operator who told him not to engage him. A normal person of sound mind concerned with the safety of others in the community would have supported law enforcement and not engaged an alleged suspicious person.


    Like most sociopaths, Zimmerman is impulsive. His decision to disregard the 911 operator and engage Maritn was something done with very little thought for consequences of Trayvon or others. Remember, this man was carrying a loaded firearm, and he could have harmed others, not just Trayvon if the situation had escalated.


    What most don’t understand is that Sociopaths are very controlling. On the night of the murder, Zimmerman never saw Trayvon before. So he perceived him as an intruder to the fifedom he was ruling and controlling.


    When he disregarded the 911 operators request for him to stand down he justified in his mind that the laws of the State of Florida did not fit his brand of justice. With this justification for his wrongdoing he set out to pass judgment on Trayvon Martin.


    By disregarding the 911 operator, Zimmerman set out to make a statement with the murder of Trayvon Martin to his community. One that he was the law of that gated community. And that anyone who opposed his law would meet the same fate as the “(*)(*)(*)(*)ing coon” Trayvon Martin.


    Zimmerman’s actions clearly showed his sociopathic pattern of behavior. That he perceived himself person above the policies police department. A person above the laws of State of Florida. A tyrant.


    However, upon being confronted by the police, He then sought to justify the murder with the “Stand Your Ground” Law making efforts to twist the law to fit into his warped interpretation of the facts. Sociopaths often try to manipulate the facts to justify their acts of wrongdoing. Moreover, they are charming enough to convince others that their wrong position is actually right.


    Unfortunately, many are too blinded by race and politics to see how this sociopath is using these issues to manipulate them by polarizing them. It’s a deflection so he can evade punishment for the murder of Trayvon Martin.


    What most Americans don’t understand is sociopaths love to play on people’s emotions. They love to get reactions out of people. It’s how they manipulate and control others. It allows them to appear sane when they’re the ones who are actually making people crazy. It’s how they sneak away and find new victims to abuse someplace else.


    Which is what will happen if George Zimmerman is allowed to walk away without punishment. He’ll find a new group of victims to take advantage of and control. A new place where he’ll eventually kill again. If this sociopath isn’t imprisoned NOW, some other unfortunate citizen who doesn’t fit into George Zimmerman’s twisted world may become his next victim.


    Many of the residents of that Florida community and throughout America are caught up in the emotional smokescreen of race and politics. They don’t understand the insidious nature of a sociopath. They have no idea how these predators use our goodwill to take advantage of us. How they lie. How they justify their malicious actions. How they deflect, shame, and play the victim. How they’ll do anything to win at any cost. How they have no empathy or regard for others. How they have no regard for human life.


    When America thinks of sociopaths they think of serial killers and mass murderers like John Wayne Gacy, Ted Bundy or Jeffrey Dahmer. They don’t understand that these predators can be right under our noses. How they can be ordinary people like George Zimmerman who pretend to have our best interests at heart. How they twist our goodwill for their benefit and use that relationship harm to us.


    America needs to look past the smokescreen of race and politics and dig deeper into the Trayvon Martin Case. George Zimmerman is a sociopath and he’s manipulating the puppet strings of the country to get away with murder.

    Uh, this is just as valid as calling Trayvon Martin a thug.
    Omitting the ‘doubts, the caveats, the ifs, ands and buts’ is not a morally neutral act; it is a subtle deception that calls scientific practice into disrepute.

    Climate scientists face an ethical choice: do they conform to established ethical standards of scientific practice or do they sacrifice those standards in favour of actions and statements that will be more likely to shape public opinion and climate policy in their preferred direction?

    I don't care if he is. He's going to prison and will have no effect on us. I care that Romney is because he could be president.

    Huh...

    judging from this sociopath test, that diagnosis is not difficult to make.

    1) Do they have problems sustaining stable relationships, personally and in business? I’m not sure about that one, but it does seem that his school mates and neighbors have nothing nice to say about him.

    2) Do they frequently manipulate others to achieve selfish goals, with no consideration of the effects on those manipulated? That, in a nutshell, is the business model of Bain Capital.

    3) Are they cavalier about the truth, and capable of telling lies to your face? See any day since the GOP race began.

    4) Do they have an air of self-importance, regardless of their true standing in society? Pretty much.

    5) Have they no apparent sense of remorse, shame or guilt? He still hasn’t apologized for Seamus the dog.

    6) Is their charm superficial, and capable of being switched on to suit immediate ends? You mean Romney the Ken Doll?

    7) Are they easily bored and demand constant stimulation? You’ll have to ask Ann.

    Are their displays of human emotion unconvincing? Yes.

    9) Do they enjoy taking risks, and acting on reckless impulse? Impersonating police officers to prank motorists is pretty risky.

    10) Are they quick to blame others for their mistakes? Yes.

    11) As teenagers, did they resent authority, play truant and/or steal? I’m not sure.

    12) Do they have no qualms about sponging off others? Well, he has no qualms about not paying his share of income taxes.

    13) Are they quick to lose their temper? A quick Google search will tell you yes.

    14) Are they sexually promiscuous? I don’t know.

    15) Do they have a belligerent, bullying manner? Need we ask?

    16) Are they unrealistic about their long-term aims? Yes.

    17) Do they lack any ability to empathize with others? Who let the dogs out?

    1 Would you regard them as essentially irresponsible? Yes. While he is most likely responsible when it comes to paying his personal bills, etc, he takes no responsibility for the lives he has ruined or even for the words that escape his emotionless mouth.

    I would go even further than Hartmann. Yes, Romney is a sociopath, a highly functioning sociopath, but in many ways, his actions wreak more havoc than your garden variety criminal. Romney hides behind the illusion of being socially acceptable, an illusion only made possible by a tremendous amount of wealth and power. While the sociopath in prison might have ruined a handful of lives, Romney has ruined thousands.

    Many CEOs and businesspeople are sociopathic, as are many politicians. However, the Republican party of the 21st century is based on a platform of sociopathic policies. Republicans of today lack all empathy. As their neighbor’s life takes a downward turn, Republicans don’t see a fellow human being needing help, they see someone who might be taking something from them.

    Not really.. Trayvon was a teen horsing around on social media.. If you had sons you would know this about boys between 13 and 18..

    What is more telling is that Trayvon had NO record of violence.. (George did)

    By ALL accounts, Trayvon was the "sweetest boy you ever knew"

    That doesn't mean he was mature or even perfect.

    But it does mean that a sociopath had no right to create a frightening situation and then kill him claiming self defense.

    George NEVER thought for a minute how Trayvon might perceived a stranger following in a car and then on foot.

    If you have sons.. give it some thought.

    It is apparent you are desperate to vilify Zimmerman and hold Martin on a pedestal. Both are wrong because you are grasping at straws instead of applying common sense. You know nothing of Zimmerman or Martin other than what you read and make up.

    As so many in this forum have not hesitated to do, digging further and further in the sewer of their imaginations to make an average teenager a drug addict, a drug dealer, his screw driver a burglary tool, his hands deadly weapons!

    No, I don't think Zimmerman is a sociopath. sociopath are often of above average intelligence, Zimmerman is probably barely reaching the 100 IQ!

    He is just a fool, suffering from mild (but obviously destructive) paranoia (maybe as a side effect of the psychotropic medication he has been on for so long) and delusions of grandeur that allo him to see his mediocre abilities, his mediocre accomplishments, as satisfactory and "good for society.". But I aalmost feel sorry for him in that aspect, because without those delusions of grandeur, he would have to face his mediocrity and the underlaying poor self-esteem.

    He is a dangerous coward, because of his (literally) "trigger happy" temper and the aggressivity that seems to take over his (already poor) abiliy for judging dituations and avoiding unnecessary conflicts (as in his 2005 attack on an under cover cop that earned him a felony charge, reduced -- per his own admittance in his "my space" page --- to a misdemeanor with the help of his family and friends.

    In my opinion, the ONLY redeeming quality I see in this dangerous looser is the apparent attatchment he has for his current wife. And even there, he allowed his poor judgement be the instigator of her downfall through perjury!

    He is also a liar. . .maybe even a compulsive liar, and

    And you and your friends have not been guilty of vilifying a 17 year old kid, killed by an overzealous, not too bright, and very temperamental looser?

    Give us a break, and look at your comments over the last months, and better yet, look at the comments that you applauded!

    Hypocrisy may be difficult to see in one's own eyes. . .projection is an efficient tool to ignore one's own shortcomings!
