Everyone must carry a DICTIONARY including yourself. You know they have dictionary 'apps' now.

Low life scum? You are a classic example of a PEST and you are used to kill what is actually good.

Very inaccurate, there are many people who never need a dictionary. There are learning mechanisms and logic types that you have never even ones considered viable because they all differ from you.

Did you know that sociopaths actually just think differently than you? They lack the chemical reactions that produce the erratic and often detrimental emotions in their brains. Due to this all resources are utilized for learning, and they rarely need a dictionary because they become natural sponges for information. If we utilized these people more we could be on Mars already, instead of fearing them, another often irrational emotional response.

Many autistic people rarely need dictionaries either, they often become masters of using words and using even the least known definitions of words. Often twisting the meaning of what people say to suit their own ends, by utilizing obscure and lesser known meanings of the words to make what you say mean something completely different. They are also literalists, it's part of their logic method, everything is as it is, slang often escapes them, memes are a complete mystery to them.

Those are just the two of the top of my head. Two examples of people who don't need dictionaries.

She's talking about "grade schoolers" They need to carry dictionaries!

I probably don't need dictionaries as often times, words will just pop in my head even if I'm totally unfamiliar with them. But I use the dictionary to verify that word is appropriate to use. It's intuition. It's something I learned to deal with writer's block.

I always thought sociopaths were deeply emotional but less empathic. Which is why it's a pathology.

Actually, not all, and they really don't now. If they have a cellphone they have Google and a slew of other resources which eliminate the need for a dictionary. ;)

They lack the chemical reactions of specific emotional responses, not all emotions. I did clarify that point. However they are not "deeply" emotional, really. Due to the social definitions of emotion, which are completely biased and more often wrong, the sociopath will attempt to blend in better by exhibiting, manufacturing, the responses to stimuli based on these social constructs. Often going "over board" as an attempt to convince everyone that they are "normal," but since normal cannot actually exist in any living organism they inevitably fail to produce the correct responses.

The frustration will also cause them to often become manipulators, using the emotional responses that others are lacking control of to get what they want from that person, but there is no emotional tie or empathy. However this is far less common than most people realize, and sociopathy is far more common than most people want to know. There are also a lot of degrees of sociopathy. It's a pretty interesting subject of study, because knowing how a human without emotions behaves allows us insight of how an artificial intelligence would also behave. Thus we are capable of predicting flaws in the logic centers and overcoming them before we actually figure out how to make the machines more intelligent than rodents.

Is there a subtle meaning to your resistance for a dictionary?

I actually use the thesaurus 'dinos' more often. lol

So what does one sociopath think about other sociopaths?

Simple. If you get rid of emotions, one can use talent or other abilities to hide those emotions. Acting is one of them. Something that sociopaths need to learn and artificial intelligence can always use animations for a more human-like behavior.

You crossed a line. This was over before it began.
You like to lie and then lie and then repeat. Even in the face of evidence to the contrary. Good luck with that

Sociopaths do learn to "act" like typical humans quite well, it's often a result of their being on the outside from childhood. They learn to observe behaviors and emulate them very well, often to the point of being able to create several personae they can used based on the situation.

The thing is, it's because of our incorrect notions that they are inherently "dangerous" that causes them to remain hidden, and sometimes even become an actual threat to those around them. As I stated, sociopathy is far more common than most people want to realize, because of socially constructed stigma associated with it, thanks to the idiotic notions given us by psychiatrists. It's an effort to locate true sociopaths for study, but the pay-off is a further understanding of the laws of logic and various other aspects of the human brain. This makes them one of the most valuable resources to psychological and neurological advances, which benefit the areas I am involved in a lot as well.

They don't. To them, we're all just humans.
