    “The good doc” will predictably frame your “case” as a bad thing…because, well, she’s utterly boring and predictable (not to mention TOTALLY fucked up by every one of their other 10,000 yardsticks) as the vast majority of all shrinks are. And Mrs. Wilson is hyper-sensitive. …especially when it comes to FOURTH GRADERS who can outsmart her :)

      I wholeheartedly agree. Most “sociopaths” (labels are pretty fucking limiting) I know are highly adaptable survivors who excel at self-preservation. Maybe they step on a few toes, but that, in my eyes, is as inherent to human nature as is the tendency to lump what we don’t understand into categories which allow us to feel as if we do (understand). Most psychologists are completely full of shit, as there is not – as you alluded to – ANY YARDSTICK by which the masses can be accurately measured. Human behavior is vastly more complicated than presumptuous cookie cutter assholes (pretending to be Carl Jung) can ever begin to wholly understand. That said, I highly suggest that you pick up a copy of “We’ve Had A Hundred Years Of Psychotherapy And The World Is Getting Worse,” by Dr. James Hillman. Eye-opening, to say the least.
