Keys to identify a psychopath with the psychiatrist José Miguel Gómez

Santo Domingo, RD.- A person with antisocial personality disorder or psychopath is an intelligent, cold, calculating, histrionic and manipulative individual, said the psychiatrist Jose Miguel Gomez in an interview on the morning program Despierta with CDN.

Gómez highlighted that in the development of the personality, the psychopath creates a very damaged structure, but that tends to confuse others because they are committed to morality and personality ethics.

“They are usually people who are not ashamed or guilty, nor do they regret or learn from experiences; and they constantly look for immediate gratifications”, highlighted Gómez.

He also pointed out that these types of people can easily get angry or fall into rage, impulsiveness and lack of control when they get frustrated or fail to achieve their goals.

Rearing and structural development

The psychiatric specialist stated that the disorder begins in childhood, along with attachment, and is detected through the story about his childhood.

“When one of the parents narrates that he punished his son and he endured the pain and suffering; he didn’t complain, but he kept his eyes cold and it was scary, it’s a sign of psychopathy.

Another sign is the typical child who broke the rules at school because from a young age he stole without planning, but he hid them and spoke lies.

Third, the minor seeks to be the leader of groups and manipulate his peers, especially the smaller ones.

Likewise, he has the ability to play the victim and blame others, to the point of orchestrating a lie or plan to make others look bad.

And finally, they do not accept the authority and correction of parents, teachers or any adult; rather, they like to challenge them.

Then, “when that child reaches adolescence, he begins to commit crimes in other sexual assaults and petty thefts against colleagues and relatives; and he continues in these practices, harming the family and himself, “Gómez emphasized.

born or made

At present, some studies show that a genetic component could be associated with the psychopathic disorder. However, at the time of diagnosis, specialists take more into account the environment during upbringing.

In other words, a child with ambivalent attachment, prolonged detachment, abandonment, and insecurity, who experienced child pornography, drug abuse, and emotional deprivation at an early age, has a greater chance of developing the disorder.

This situation causes him to become an adult full of hatred, resentment, thirst for revenge, complaints, guilt, chronic anger, jealousy, envy, who is aware of his actions.

Secondly, 85% of the diagnosis is based on the clinical, family history, with the partner, history with oneself and psychosocial uprising, because it does not present negative results in electroencephalogram and hormonal studies.

It should be noted that the arrest of psychopathy becomes difficult when the individual achieves some academic level or social promotion, since he is after power. Usually, he likes to have a high economic status, lead and has skills and abilities to do the “dirty work”.

The psychopath and his relationship with others

The psychopaths they treat the the rest as objects, they “reify” people. He is an expert choosing his victim (vulnerable person in his family bond) and they always act for his own benefit.

In relationships, the psychopath manipulate to the spouse to such a degree that it makes them believe guilty that everything negative that happens in the coexistence is their fault.

“He is killing his self-esteem and makes him emotionally dependent through control.”

While in friendships, they tend to bond with people whom they can influence, direct, dominate, and manipulate.
