  1. I never collected government aid for my mental health diagnosis.  I should have, and I am forever a moron because I did not.  I swear a laughing Trump in my head keeps repeating, " He actually fell for it!"
    I disagreed with the diagnosis, I knew part of the syndrome was from my attempts to treat myself, and, saying my file had been lost, the evaluator presented the diagnosis along with a slightly incorrect summary. I should have regardless.

    I need another coffee. This is why a single, unmediated correlation can be worse than uninformative.
  4. Liberalism is white supremacy

    This seemed to be an exceptable place for this thought, which is a nuanced, contrary perspective. I fathomed why, comparing the parties to their bases of support, conservative parties might have proportionately more narcissists who would score high on social dominance orientation SDO. In the context of the five factor model, conservatism is probably related to Openness, inversely related, more than any other factor. Although Openness, Intellect, is socially desireable, the proclivity for experimentation might backfire occasionally. This blogger explains that IQ is linked with some troubling behaviors like drug abuse. Perhaps most conservatives are low Openness, but these conservatives do not become our politicians. The correlation of Openness to Extraversion is always the strongest correlation, and the two factors merge into a hierarchical factor called Positive Emotionality PEM. Open people seek novelty and unconventionality, new ideas and aesthetics, and new people. Extraverts want to be around people, and they are outgoing and warm. In contrast, narcissists are usually more outgoing and assertive than warm, but, with extroversion spared, they could still make successful politicians. Unfoutunately they probably have higher SDO along with an affinity for deceit, and the SDO would be what actually drives their conservatism. Being natural politicians, however, they easily step in for the conventional minded who are weary of "progress." ... is what I hypothesized.
  5. Like many mental disorders, it might be related to problems with sleeping. Know that even non-pharmaceutical substances can be psychiatrically problematic. Many supplements along with their "recommended" intake are not sufficiently screened, but their availability is considered an important freedom. The answer might be right in front of you.

    Gambling is a form of thrill-seeking, which is associated with antisocial personality traits. I think he was antisocial, and wonder whether he hated the people he killed. The two hierarchical factors of personality were provisionally termed "alpha" and "beta", but some newer research refers to them as "Stability" and "Plasticity." Stability is the most relevant to violent behavior. With respect to the five-factor model of personality, Stability mainly consists of items from Agreeableness, Conscientiousness, and Neuroticism. Agreeableness and Conscientiousness are closely related, and they typically merge into a hierarchical factor called Constraint. In contrast, Neuroticism is the satellite that typically doesn't correlate strongly with anyone. When the personality disorders are mapped onto the five-factor model, Narcissists have less Agreeableness and Antisocials have less Constraint. I suspect that Agreeableness is the ideal predictor for abrasive behaviors, but Conscientiousness is related to negligent or reckless behaviors, of which drug abuse is a strong correlate of antisocial personality. There is a facet of Extraversion, which is socially desireable, called Excitement Seeking that is unimpaired in Narcissistic and Antisocial personality, but we know that the shooter was not extroverted. Neuroticism has a weaker relationship to drug use, which is probably for self-medication in this context. Neuroticism is the outstanding predictor of suicide, and many of these shooters are suicidal. This shooter was getting old anyway, and he wanted to escape. The relationship of Neuroticism to lower Agreebaleness is somewhat ambiguous. Neuroticism has an opposite, positive correlation with the Modesty facet of Agreeableness, but the Angry Hostility facet of Neuroticism has much overlap with Agreeableness. Modesty is particularly relevant to Narcissism and a lower-order factor called Honesty-Humility. My pondering of this led me to separate abrasive behaviors into hostile behaviors, designed to hurt, and exploitative behaviors, designed for personal gain. Murder could be exploitative or hostile, but blatant murders like these are typically the work of suicidal, Neurotic people, who incidentally have a hostility bias. Although mental illness is normally associated with Neuroticism, drug abuse can mimic the symptoms of mental illness, and he could have been abusing his prescription for Valium. That psychosis is a side-effect of Valium surprises me because it suppresses the HPA axis, which increases prior to psychotic episodes. Furthermore, I must ask how he got the prescription without his "severe, undiagnosed mental illness" surfacing. He must have been diagnosed with something.

    I think real gun reform will begin with the tracking of guns. Guns will be registered and examined regularly. This would make it easier to restricted when and who has guns where. I am bothered by this shooting because prior knowledge may not have even stopped it. If police went into his room and saw all the guns, there may have been very little they could do except have the hotel owners to ask him to keep the guns in his car or a locker somewhere.

    To anyone other than an anarchist, our freedoms are in competition. The Magnetic Fields, whom I referenced in April, was truly a favorite when I was in highschool, and "Grizzly Bear is awesome." dEUS is less than preferred, but I have selected well. Soulwax - NY Excuse dEUS - Keep You Close Anyway, I am still waiting.

    Should I beg to be questioned about this, or did nobody notice or care? For the record, I did not throw in the ellipsis just to make things harder on all of you. I listened to a lot of different music artists after I posted this.
