MAKING FUN OF YOURSELF OR OTHERS IS A STRONG SIGN OF PSYCHOPATHY.
Psychopathy -assesses character as well as behavior, it is defined as a mental (antisocial) disorder in which an individual manifests amoral and antisocial behavior, shows a lack of ability to love or establish meaningful personal relationships, expresses extreme egocentricity, and demonstrates a failure to learn from experience and other behaviors associated with the condition. Psychopathic individuals tend to be callous, lack empathy for others, and display little guilt or remorse for their actions. They also have a manipulative interpersonal style, have a grandiose sense of self-worth, and are impulsive, with a reduced capacity to regulate their behavior — — AGGRESSIVE. Individuals with psychopathic characteristics are at a significantly elevated risk for engaging in a wide range of criminal actions (Neumann & Hare, 2008; Porter & Woodworth, 2006; Salekin, 2008), tend to have a large number of short-term sexual partners, manipulate others to their own advantage, readily use aggression to obtain instrumental goals, and are unconcerned with the infliction of harm on others facilitating a range of exploitative behaviors including rape, cheating, and violence. The problem, of course, for this perspective is that there are substantial costs to engaging in this type of behavior — increased risk of mortality, sanctions from group members, and low investment in offspring (Boehm, 2012). Psychopaths don’t usually come across as horrible people — at least not at first. Instead, they’re usually well-liked.Their tales about their adventures are astounding, yet believable. And they always portray themselves in a positive light.They use flattery and compliments to gain trust. And other people usually walk away from their conversations with a psychopath feeling positive. They use guilt trips and flattery to manipulate others into doing things they wouldn’t normally do.They also try to gain sympathy from others. They claim to be victims in an attempt to dupe others into helping them or caring for them.
Psychopaths don’t care who they have to hurt to get ahead. They’re willing to do whatever it takes to meet their objectives and they won’t feel bad about the damage their behavior causes other people. Much like narcissists, psychopaths think the usual rules don’t apply to them. They have an inflated sense of self-importance and they truly believe they’re better and more deserving than the rest of the world. Psychopaths don’t care about other people, including their families. When they hurt someone else, they don’t experience any distress. They feel numb toward other people’s pain. So they may say and do things that are quite damaging to others without batting an eyelash. If someone dares approach them to discuss their wounds, a psychopath isn’t likely to accept any responsibility, which can make their reactions especially toxic.
They put a lot of thought into what they’re going to achieve with a lot less thought about how they’re going to achieve it. As absolute narcissists, all psychopaths think they’re extremely important. To them, the universe revolves around them and their needs. Everyone around them is either a target they will try to use to fulfill those needs or an obstacleto be eliminated in the pursuit of what they desire. For this reason, psychopaths surround themselves with individuals they can manipulate and brainwash, who idolize them. This not only gives them tools to machinate against others, but also supports the narcissistic bubble, sustaining their false sense of importance. Psychopaths view themselves, other people, and the world differently. Their logic and emotions are extremely flawed, which is why their behavior is erratic.
PSYCHOPATHS ARE JOLLY?
The truth is that laughter isn’t always positive or healthy. According to science, it can be classified into different types,ranging from genuine and spontaneous to simulated (fake), stimulated (for example by tickling), induced (by drugs) or even pathological. But the actual neural basis of laughter is still not very well known — and what we do know about it largely comes from pathological clinical cases.There are a number of other specific conditions that may also be associated with abnormal brain wiring. Gelotophobia is an intense fear of being laughed at.
Gelotophilia, on the other hand, is the enjoyment of being laughed at. The related condition katagelasticism, meanwhile, is the joy of laughing at others.
Katagelasticism is a psychological condition in which a person excessively enjoys laughing at others (coined by Christian F. Hempelmann and Sean Harrigan from καταγελαστής(katagelastēs), Ancient Greek for “mocker”). Katagelasticists actively seek and establish situations in which they can laugh at others (at the expense of these people). There is a broad variety of things that katagelasticists would do — starting from harmless pranks or word playsto truly embarrassing and even harmful, mean-spirited jokes.
They would be of the opinion that laughing at others is part of the daily life and if others do not like being laughed at, they should just fight back. For the katagelasticists it is fun laughing at others and there is almost nothing that might hinder them from doing so. For them, some people even might provoke getting laughed at (and surely deserve being laughed at).This condition often makes it difficult for sufferers to gain and maintain acquaintances and romantic partners.
BACKED WITH RESEARCH
Proyer et al. (2012) report positive relations between the joy of laughing at others and psychopathic personality traits and other studies found associations with the liking of aggressive forms of humor (Samson and Meyer 2010).
Ruch and Proyer (2009b) described two further strategies for dealing with laughter and ridicule.
Those high in gelotophilia (i.e.,joy in being laughed at)actively seek and establish situations in which they can make others laugh.They do not do this for putting themselves down but enjoy making others laugh — even at the own expense. They are not ashamed or embarrassed because of mishaps or misfortunes that happened to them. Contrary, they enjoy sharing these incidents with others to make them laugh, like, for example, some comedians do or “class-clowns” that joke about themselves. In recent studies, gelotophilia has been linked to histrionic self-presentation styles (Rennerand Heydasch 2010), greater levels of life satisfaction (Weibel and Proyer 2012), orextraversion (Proyer and Ruch 2010; Ruch and Proyer 2009a).
Those high in katagelasticism actively seek and establish situations in which they can laugh at others. They do not feel bad when doing so but rather think that being laughed at is part of the daily life — and those who do not like being laughed at just should ﬁght back. They do not feel remorse when laughing at others (see Proyer et al. 2010).
Ruch and Proyer (2009a) argue that there is a rude and almost antisocial component to extreme expressions of katagelasticism. Finally, katagelasticism was strongly related with inclinations to the role of bully,reinforcer, and assistant to the bully — this was stable across all age groups and for theself- as well as the other-ratings.
Psychopaths are bullies. They often resort to intimidation tactics, such as stalking and cyberstalking, smear campaigns and various other machinations. When their targets no longer idolize them or fulfill their demands, psychopaths often retaliate. They can’t tolerate when anyone bursts the artificial bubble of their complete and utter narcissism. Psychopaths are trivial human beings.They don’t have any real human relationships and they don’t accomplish any constructive goals, except as a false mask. When you see the psychopath for what he is–a pathetic, insignificant human being–you cut him down to size. Don’t give the psychopath too much importance because, in reality, he has none.
