Summary:

In the first episode, Dianne Emerson introduces the podcast, Psychopath in Your Life. The aim of this podcast is to help people understand who psychopaths are and how to identify them amongst the crowd of people that you rub shoulders with on a daily basis. Tune is as Dianne gives listeners insight into how her journey into this research began, why general information and checklists regarding psychopaths can be confusing and misleading, and what it means to be a “successful” psychopath.
Time Stamped Show Notes:
00:10 – Introduction to Psychopath in Your Life
00:19 – This podcast is exclusively dedicated to talking about psychopaths
00:42 – In the 1980’s, Ann Rule was one of the more famous crime writers
00:49 – Her first book was about Ted Bundy, The Stranger Beside Me
01:07 – Jack Olsen also came out with a book called Son
01:19 – The character in this book came from a prominent family
01:52 – This podcast will be about identifying psychopaths
02:04 – Not all the information about psychopaths—the checklists— translate into behavior
02:28 – More information has become available because of the internet
02:40 – To store the information, Dianne set up a free forum
02:52 – She started sorting information and people started sharing their stories
03:16 – Along the way, the discussion forum grew and grew
03:50 – Dianne became fascinated by how many people got involved with a psychopath
04:20 – Who are the psychopaths? They are people who are likely to commit crimes (general prison population)
04:28 – 25% of the prison population are tested and classified as psychopaths
04:35 – 1-3% of the general population are classified as psychopaths
05:04 – How do you know if a person is a psychopath?
05:08 – They fall under the personality disorder cluster
05:14 – “It’s in the genes”
06:03 – Checklists are a good source of information, but they can also cause confusion
06:12 – Smart psychopaths vs. those who end up in prison
06:49 – Psychopaths with criminal minds are easier to identify
06:58 – “The more educated they are, the more they are able to cover their behavior”
07:06 – “The one thing that they don’t have that we have is a conscience”
07:52 – Without a conscience, psychopaths are able to make decisions normal people cannot
08:06 – A practiced psychopath can trick people into believing that they have conscience
09:19 – A psychopath can be a person who’s successful
09:37 – A “successful psychopath” studies and learns different behaviors
10:12 – Normal people tend to overlook things
10:45 – A few years ago, Dianne was contacted by psychopaths who wanted to tell their stories
11:03 – She started a book about the plight of victims of psychopaths
11:13 – Dianne thought there had to be some more information to share to the public regarding how psychopaths operate
11:51 – She decided to interview psychopaths under controlled circumstances
12:46 – One question she asked was, “what was their motivation?”
12:51 – All 3 of them said they wanted to learn
13:00 – They wanted to learn how they can hide their behavior better
13:24 – Dianne’s book is called Psychopaths in Our Lives: My Interviews
14:09 – Stranger danger is overrated
14:31 – Next episode will be about the personalities of psychopaths, clues to look for, and how you can know if you’re a person they’re looking to victimize
14:44 – Dianne looks forward to your questions and comments to continue the conversation!
15:07 – Dianne has spoken with a lot of victims and understands your need for privacy and confidentiality and will deal with your comments/emails with the utmost respect
15:34 – Check out Psychopath In Your Life and send your questions and comments (anonymous, if you’d prefer) that Dianne will be more than willing to address on the air
15:57 – Dianne closes the podcast

3 Key Points:
One size does NOT fit all—the checklists of information regarding psychopaths does not always translate into behavior.
Practiced and successful psychopaths trick people into believing they are “normal.”
It is the psychopaths in our lives who are the ones that can hurt us the most.

Resources Mentioned:

Summary:
In Episode 002, Dianne delves into the very terms used to define a psychopath and some of the attributes they may exhibit. She shares a story of a psychopath’s co-mingled diagnosis and discusses how a psychopath used the guise of kindness in The Fake Rockefeller. Who do psychopaths choose as victims? Why do some psychopaths pretend to be kind and caring? Tune in as Dianne discusses the complicated nature of defining a psychopath, why they try to blend into the crowd, and how being kind and caring can make you a token victim.
Time Stamped Show Notes:
00:10 – Introduction to Psychopath in Your Life
00:19 – This podcast is dedicated to being exclusively a discussion about psychopaths
00:31 – Psychopaths, Psychopaths, and antisocial personality disorders – what’s the best way to identify them?

01:33 – Even Psychopaths, themselves, disagree with the terms they’ve been called
02:44 – Dianne shares an example of a “co-mingled diagnosis”
04:07 – Psychopaths look like, walk like, and talk like normal people
04:30 – There are many psychopaths who are aware of their condition

06:27 – One interviewee said something Dianne will never forget
06:55 – “The world is becoming more like us than you”
07:13 – Certain industries attract more psychopaths than others
07:30 – Victims are kind and caring people
08:01 – The end game for a psychopath is to gain control; so if you’re kind, you tend to be an easier victim
08:20 – “Living life by painting the red flags white”—kind people tend to ignore the red flags
08:38 – Dianne has heard from victims all these years, but she never had an idea about how much detail goes into the planning
09:09 – Psychopaths may have animal abuse in their background, but can also use this stereotype to their advantage by befriending and taking care of an animal
09:52 – At the end of the day, “Psychopaths don’t love anybody, but themselves”
10:04 – See the story of The Fake Rockefeller
10:40 – Part of how the psychopath blended in was by pretending to be a kind person who wanted to adopt a handicapped dog
11:39 – Psychopaths know the triggers and attribute that kind and caring people exhibit as it becomes a part of their persona
12:14 – We RESPECT your privacy – contact Dianne for comments and questions
12:34 – Check out Psychopath In Your Life and send an anonymous email
13:23 – Dianne closes the podcast
3 Key Points:

Psychopaths behave very normally—you have to keep a close eye to actually identify them properly.
The world is becoming filled with more psychopaths than normal people.
Victims tend to be those who are kind and caring as they are the ones that are the most likely to give up control to a psychopath.

Summary:
In Episode 004, Dianne reminds us that each psychopath is unique and assuming that there is one way to identify all psychopaths is not only misguided, but impossible. In the same line of thinking, one can never be too sure what psychopaths are thinking. Listen as Dianne shares the behaviors and actions of the psychopaths she has interviewed; why they try to flip your charges and accusations against you how the biggest mistake you can make, as a victim, is to tell them you already “know”.
Time Stamped Show Notes:
00:13 – Introduction to Psychopath in Your Life
00:18 – Dianne is the author of the book, Psychopaths in Our Lives
00:26 – Dianne received a couple of interesting letters
00:43 – You cannot simply list down symptoms of psychopaths – it’s all about one’s observations
01:06 – Dianne talks about Ann Rule’s book on Ted Bundy
01:28 – “Ted has been described as the perfect son, the perfect student, the Boy Scout grown to adulthood, a genius, as handsome as a movie idol, a bright light in the future of the Republican Party, a sensitive psychiatric social worker, a budding lawyer, a trusted friend, a young man for whom the future could surely hold only success. He is all of these things, and none of them.”
02:15 – What is not addressed is the life of a psychopath and how to break up with them
02:46 – One psychopath in Dianne’s book, Fred, had a relationship that broke in a way that he didn’t want, so he took his revenge
03:23 – Be really clear on who you’re dealing with
03:44 – “They are NOT all the same”
04:12 – Not knowing who you’re dealing with can mean very serious consequences
04:25 – The better psychopaths are ones that are more sophisticated
04:48 – Do they have a conscience?
05:24 – Old criminal checklists for psychopaths do not apply all the time
05:54 – Be calculated in assessing who they are
06:02 – Every victim suffers from PTSD
06:34 – The problem is you may be seeing different things about a person than what others are seeing
06:57 – The worst thing you can do is to confide in people about a psychopath issue
07:13 – Psychopaths will do everything to flip the charges on you
07:48 – Everybody tries to trick the last person
08:50 – “I felt like I was going crazy” – It’s part of a psychopath’s plan
09:42 – When you start to question a psychopath, they start to push you to the edge, mentally
10:51 – Pay attention to the dynamics
11:08 – The last thing you ever want to tell a psychopath is that you “know”
11:53 – Dianne shares an ex hit-man’s story
13:32 – Get in touch with Dianne on her website or by email
14:05 – Dianne values your privacy and has no intention to build a list
14:23 – Comment from Bill, “I am the person you need me to be in order to trust, confide in, support, and promote, is the person I will become. Being free of unpredictable emotional reactions and guilt, I am free to be whatever, whenever, and then change them when necessary…”
15:00 – Subscribe to the show on iTunes, Google Play, Facebook, and Youtube
3 Key Points:
Not all psychopaths have the same characteristics – one size does not fit all so always be on guard.
Never assume you know what a psychopath is thinking or tell them that you “know” about who they are.
When you start to feel like YOU are the one going crazy; remember, that is part of the psychopath’s plan.Resources Mentioned:

-Podcast Show Notes-

Episode 005
iTunes
Google Play

Summary:
One can form and build their conscience at the age of 3-5 years old and a lack of a conscience is one of the key characteristics of a psychopath. Having no conscience—meaning a lack of regard to right or wrong or the feelings of others—can be a direct result of being raised in a home that did not exemplify love and/or compassion. In Episode 005, Dianne introduces the medical definitions and description for psychopaths and the disorders they tend to fall into to help us gain a better understanding of the condition. She also responds to listeners’ comments, expressing her desire to help others.

Time Stamped Show Notes:

00:06 – Introduction to Psychopath in Your Life
00:47 – There are different ways to diagnose conditions and this can present a problem
01:25 – DSM is the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders
02:00 – Psychopaths fall into the personality disorder
02:27 – Conduct disorder is the initial diagnosis for children

03:15 – RAD means Reactive Attachment Disorder

03:48 – Children with RAD may develop stable relationships with caregivers and others

03:54 – Treatments include positive interaction, a stable & nurturing environment, psychological counseling, and parent/caregiver counseling

04:19 – Caregivers tend to think parents did something wrong to the kid, instead of considering pre-psychopathic behavior

04:50 – Most children are naturally resilient

05:35 – The main criteria for psychopaths is they don’t have a conscience

06:00 – The American Psychiatric Association and the DSM prefer to use the term ASPD

06:31 – ASPD (antisocial personality disorder) is a condition where a person shows no regard for right or wrong and ignores the rights and feelings of others

07:19 – Check further information on ASPD in Dr. Hare’s website

07:49 – Your conscience forms between the age between 3-5 years old

07:54 – How a psychopath acts out depends on the kind of supervision they get

08:18 – The destruction rate of a well-socialized psychopath is greater than any serial killer

09:08 – Please send us your questions if you have any

09:31 – “We all can improve”

09:45 – Dianne’s personality can be mistaken by people

10:08 – One comment said, Dianne was chumming around the psychopaths she interviews

10:41 – If Dianne reacted in any way, it would steer the direction of the conversation away from the truth

11:18 – Another comment was that she gave the psychopaths a platform where they are the victims

12:04 – A great psychopath plays the victim while they victimize others

12:31 – “We need to explore this subject”

13:18 – Dianne won’t move into “high” mode

13:35 – Dianne shares an example to explain

14:56 – Psychopaths know how to draw you back in

15:46 – Being drawn back in is very common

16:06 – Get in touch with Dianne on her website – we’ll keep your privacy

17:46 – Shows will be uploaded on Tuesdays on iTunes, Google Play, Facebook, YouTube, and our website.

18:12 – Dianne invites and desires for you to know her more because she cares

18:21 – Many years ago, Dianne lost everything to a culprit psychopath

18:49 – Dianne can relate to what you’re going through

19:01 – Dianne closes the podcast

3 Key Points:

Psychopaths fall into the category of personality disorders.

Psychopaths have traits that can be exhibited as a child; having a stable and nurturing environment and counseling for both child and caregiver are great ways to make a change for the better.

Victims getting drawn back into a relationship with a psychopath is very common – do not be ashamed if it happens to you.

Summary:
In Episode 007, Dianne further discusses the characteristics of children displaying psychopathic tendencies; this includes certain traits and behaviors that are specific to children. Listen to find out why psychopathic symptoms go unnoticed in a household, the status for psychopathic care facilities today, and the reason why reporting can be complicated.

Time Stamped Show Notes:
00:12 – Introduction to Psychopath in Your Life
00:18 – Dianne is the author of the book, Psychopaths in Our Lives
01:05 – “We’re finally getting information coming out”
01:25 – The Atlantic Magazine has a great article, “When Your Child is a Psychopath”
02:12 – Dianne reads, “callous and unemotional traits—shorthand for a cluster of characteristics and behaviors, including a lack of empathy, remorse, or guilt, shallow emotions, aggression and even cruelty, and a seeming indifference to punishment.”
02:48 – Callous and unemotional children have no trouble hurting others to get what they want
02:58 – In 2013, The American Psychiatric Association and the DSM say that the condition can go unnoticed
04:12 – Dr. Hare developed the youth checklist for psychopathy behaviors
04:34 – What’s being done now is trial and error
04:46 – The flaw or lack is in developing places where kids can receive support/training for their behavior
05:46 – Once kids age out of a facility, there’s no follow-up
06:26 – Few families get to the point where they find care facilities
06:58 – In China, there are tons of facilities for gaming addictions
07:20 – Research and self-reporting are key issues
07:58 – Dianne shares about the Ted Bundy case
09:12 – The big trip up for Ted Bundy was pornography
09:45 – Ted had a girlfriend who stayed with him
10:23 – He was engaged a couple of times
10:37 – He had a pattern
10:58 – Reporting becomes complicated because you rely on the family to report it
11:57 – Psychopaths are not always men
12:57 – Men who are abused by women are off the radar
13:23 – For more information go to www.psychopath-research.com, in the “Family” section
13:54 – Register to be able to post
14:22 – A person on the site posts about his child who is under care in a facility

Summary:

In Episode 008, Dianne dives further into the complexities that explain psychopaths become who they are. One’s background and childhood could account for part of this, but it isn’t a clear-cut cause and effect relationship for ALL psychopaths. Listen as Dianne shares more of her discoveries through the interviews she’s performed, why it’s important to show empathy to the parents of psychopaths, and how psychopaths can manipulate their diagnostic test results.

Time Stamped Show Notes:
00:11 – Introduction to Psychopath in Your Life
00:18 – Today’s episode is a follow up on the article: When Your Child is a Psychopath
00:49 – “If we don’t understand the past, we have no path forward to the future”
00:54 – Dianne received a disturbing email regarding blaming the parents
01:07 – We’re not blaming the parents
01:23 – Carl, the young man in the article went to a facility
01:37 – The big problem Dianne sees is there is no data for him beyond the age of 18
01:46 – Carl called the facility to report what he was doing
01:57 – The reporter paid a visit
02:06 – Interview with his family reveals that Carl is doing terrifically – better than expected
02:27 – Carl’s wife had a different story – it was a disastrous relationship
02:52 – The part that’s alarming is Carl now owns a funeral home
03:26 – We don’t have a way to know how psychopath genes get passed

Don’t paint the red flags white – listen to your gut.

Summary:

In Episode 009, Dianne talks about the pain a psychopath’s victim often endures and how the after-effects can linger as PTSD, depression and/or anxiety. Psychopaths use gaslighting (a form of mental abuse) to trouble the minds of their victims and it’s very common to walk away from a relationship with a psychopath physically and mentally downtrodden. Listen as Dianne explains the detrimental effects of being a victim of a psychopath and offers encouragement to those experiencing such symptoms.
