I dont think you understand what empathy means.

It doesnt simply mean good.

Its a two part process.

Seeing emotions in others, and reacting to the emotions of others.

People like myself, are blind to most subtle expressions of emotion, however I actually have stronger reactions to the pain and suffering of others once Im aware it exists.

PPaths, are fully aware of the emotions of others, however they cant share emotions. A typical sign of Psychopath is the inability to grieve the death of a loved one.  Its called emotional poverty they simply cannot connect emotions to other people.

Women react significantly higher on both counts, they perceive emotions and react to them much more strongly.

This doesnt make them good people however as they are unable to think logically, and deal with situations in a reactionary matter.

Psychopaths are unable to grieve the death of a loved one!

Yet they felt love.  (It's possible they didn't grieve because the dead person wasn't a loved one afterall) I always considered grief for someone's passing a very selfish act.  Why is the individual upset, they didn't die,someone else did.  Are they upset because they no longer receive benefit from the relationship?  Surely they can't be upset for the dead person, they can't feel anything,they are dead. So, grieving for someone passed is a selfish act, the grief ois all about the individuals loss,he feels sad for himself.  And surely the grief stricken knows we all die, so why be sad over something inevitable, beyond their control, unless you had selfish motives, losing the benefit you derived from that relationship.  So grief over someone passing is nothing more than self pity and hardly an indication of an emotionally healthy individual.  If anything it highlights the deep selfishness of human nature.

And Women reacting significantly higher to emotions in others doesn't lead to the conclusion they feel more empathy.  Because of the fact women are more self interested (narcissistic) they just may well be the case that women are just more fearful of what they see befalling others; perhaps because what befalls others might well befall themselves. In other words, their greater emotional responses might simply represent a greater concern for themselves and the fact women are generally more fearful.

You just keep rehashing well worn feminist propaganda that is only believed by white knights (men who hate their dicks and would prefer to be a woman) or feminazis.  If you analyze it critically you all see it's about demonising MEN, the evil gender.  Sadly, you are seeing the issue through a feminist lens and that will hinder your ability to be objective and so miss the ways in which men try to alleviate suffering indicating an empathetic worldview.  I can't blame you though, as the West is predominantly feminist with more and more men being raised in such a manner and not even aware of their own self hatred and worship of the feminine.

I think the difference is one who hijacks a discussion for attention, versus one who creates  discussion by being controversial.
That's a fair point.  I don't want to be controversial, but is seems just by possessing common sense these days you are labelled controversial.  

Where I took issue with you was when you casually expressed that women more more empathetic as if it was true.  This is clearly feminist propaganda based on MISANDRY.  You only need to look around and realise that men go to war, sacrifice their lives, perform dangerous jobs, practise chivalry, study how to eradicate disease and vaccines etc etc all so women and children don't need to suffer.  And women have the cheek to suggest they are more empathetic.  Why do men do this, 1) because it is in their Nature to protect, to express their empathy and 2), because they know women won't.  Women will RARELY put anybody first before themselves, women are selfish creatures, deeply narcissistic, and their narcissism extends to the point of believing they are superior to men, more empathetic, better parents etc etc, when evidence clearly points the other way.

Sadly, Historically this truth was well known, even the Buddha rejected women as monks because he said they were too vain to achieve any real sense of spiritual enlightenment, only reluctantly changing his mind after some women convinced him otherwise, but even then he was skeptical and imposed conditions.  Feminists would label my post discriminatory, misogynistic etc etc, this is even further evidence of how deeply ingrained they have convinced societies that women = good, man = bad.  If women criticise men it is deserved and justified, if men criticise women he is full of hate, a misogynist and a threat.

Is the world a better place now that feminism has destroyed families and used men to force other men out of childrens lives?  Was that done out of empathy or some deeply imbedded self interest inherent in all women?

What the fuck are you talking about.

Femisnist spout the nonsense that men are equal with women. The clean slate theory is at the heart of most liberals and feminist viewpoints.

The view that people are born the way they are is a very conservative viewpoint. I believe people are born evil, and I believe a healthy womens neurology is only really fit for child rearing.

Every see a woman right a descent fucking song, memorize sport stats, take up a hobby that isnt based around being social or comfortable.

Im starting to think you dont know what empathy actually means in the modern neurological context.
Feminist don't spout equality at all, what planet are you living on.  We already had a word for equality, it's called egalitarian.  Feminist spout that they should be entitled and privileged BECAUSE THEY OWN A PUSSY and that it must be done at the expense of the EVIL gender. MEN.

EVER HEAR a women say MEN & CHILDREN FIRST.  I didn't think so.

I think the term "Troll" gets a bad rap.  It used to refer to someone who deliberately misrepresented themselves and baited someone fishing for an extreme reaction.  Now it just means, I don't like that guy's worldview and what he is saying so I think he is a troll.

The shittyness of ppath parents means that they have a greatly reduced chance of passing on their genes. As they have no more interesting in parenting, than regular people have in raising a monkey.

I think this may be true for some, but look at these third world shitholes, where dysfunctional people breed like rabbits, many often seriously abused as children.  I think the majority of breeders are the dysfunctional and not the other way around.
7  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Psychopaths are among us. on: July 27, 2014, 11:48:06 PM

Lol if you think Im a feminist your a fucking idiot. Women are good with children and fucking useless at everything else.

And your suggestion women are more empathetic is spouting feminist propaganda. And you are wrong about women being good with children, as the primary caregivers they do a terrible job and their are many reasons to associate their poor child rearing skills with the level of dysfunction in any given society.  Many people think they are things they are not, don't worry, sooner or later you will work it out, but you are most definitely a feminist.
8  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Psychopaths are among us. on: July 27, 2014, 11:35:05 PM
I dont know where your getting on with this abuse shit, in the civilized world its quite rare, unless the parents have mental health problems of there own which is usually the reality.

See, you prove my point exactly, abuse in child rearing is so common you are blind to it, it has become normalised too you.  When they survey the population, the majority support corporal punishment in regards to children. Almost everyone ignores a mother dragging a kid around the supermarket by an arm and screaming and yelling at the child.   Child abuse is invisible, it is not even considered abuse as you say, you think it is rare, when in fact it is a daily occurrence in most households on a daily basis.  The reason you don't hear about it is the victim (children) have no social, political or economic power nor the means to express their victimisation.  You only hear about it much later when by then most people have rationalized and justified the abuse and paradoxically carry on the same cycle with their own children.  

To you, children's victimization only becomes a problem when it is extreme, ignoring that the reason their are extreme cases is because we tolerate a lot of low grade abuse.  And the everyday, socially accepted forms of child abuse is a greater problem to society as it is so prevalent and affects so many people, effectively creating a dysfunctional society of dysfunctional people.  With one of the greatest dysfunctions being that they think they are functional when they are not.  (Like the ignoring of childhood abuse as acceptable, when clearly it is dysfunctional).

Also, there is far more extreme levels of child abuse yet you will never hear about it as it is behind closed doors, the victims are dependent and powerless and the side effects is ant-social behaviour much later on.

Lol Im a libtard Yet I advocate the forced removal of these people. If you think I dont have a ruthless streak I dont think you understand me very well. I do have a rather strong view of right and wrong, thats usually associated with the right numb nuts. I have a history of people very one sided on my view points, and I truly believe its because I have a superior sense of logic and morality.

Actually if you look at the research most cases of child abuses come down to the parents having poor empathy.

An empathetic person is usually a natural parent which is why women generally score significantly higher than men on empathy scores.

This is where you and I differ, I wasn't talking about the extreme cases, I was referring to the majority of child rearing principles that are considered acceptable by the mainstream I consider abuse, hitting, screaming, constant put downs and criticism, blackmailing, controlling, brainwashing etc.  The problem is, when so many people perform abusive behaviour it becomes normalised.  And I don't know where you got that nonsense about women scoring higher in empathy, you must be reading feminist weekly too much.  So, not only are you a libtard, but you're a white knight spreading feminist propaganda all over the place.  Anyone with a hint of critical analysis can tell that women are far more ruthless, cunning, abusive, callous and cold than men are.  You don't need a study to tell you that, just look around you.

The whole reason feminists started spreading propaganda about how they where the gentler gender was because social studies like psychiatry was beginning to uncover how evil the average woman was capable of, especially towards her own children, even infants.  Men being protective by nature and also stronger, tend to want to protect those weaker,  Women feel no such thing, resenting their own weakness, they despise anybody lower down the chain than them and will feel nothing about taking their resentment out on them.  Children are the perfect target for such peoples.

Lol I dont think you understand what it means to be a pyscopath.

Ironically you dont understand how I have poor empathy myself. I have very little value or regard for the feelings of others. I of course care for others, but dont think for a second I'm soft on people or myself for that matter.

Tough love isnt something a ppath is capable of. They have no concern for their children, there just objects to them.

I indeed understand what a psychopath is, unlike you I see their value and don't take the libtard black and white approach of Liberals Good-Everyone else Bad.  Psychopaths serve a much needed counterbalance to the libtards, who paradoxically cause just as much, if not more chaos and destruction with their good intentions.

Ironically beating, raping, expolitation of children is a very common trait among psychopaths.
How does this differ from the mainstream population, many of which abuse their children in one way or the other, ultimately even a worse atrocity as many of them think they are doing good.

A large dominant portion are also the most unsuccessful(long term prisoners).
 Actually ppaths are shit poor with children, so its actually a huge disadvantage. Not to mention a society of psychopaths would be stuck in the stone ages.

If you understand what they're all about you'll understand a society of any significant depth wouldn't be possible for a society without empathy.

Its highly likely our society has been burdened incredibly by these people.

They are the large part of the reason we have prisons, the reason politicians cannot be trusted, and why economics never works as it should.
Are you fucking kidding, the average so called NORMAL person is terrible with kids.  Since the beginning of time our child rearing principles have been disgusting, nothing but constant beating, raping, exploitation, brainwashing etc etc. of our children.  The majority of adults still believe it is OK to hit children but not another adult, these are the NORMAL people. And we already live in a society with little empathy.  Society is burdened with pathetic, liberal minded people like yourself who constantly defend those not suited to survival in a modern world.  There is no place in a hostile, raw environment like our modern world for those that aren't equipped to deal with it.  People need to become LESS empathetic, not MORE.  You have to be cruel to be kind, something libtards don't understand.

Psychopathy is evolutionarily advantageous.  Empathy for the weak and downtrodden has only held back humanities progress.

You don't think the anti-gun video he made called "Cold Dead Hand" had something to do with it.

Hard work makes luck. You are negative, and thus the universe punishes you for it. Sorry your life sucks and you are bitter.
1. Hard work doesn't make luck (Your boss really sucked you in with that one)  Some of the worst luck I ever encountered is when I was working my arse off.  2. The Universe can't and doesn't punish (Some new age writer really sucked you in with that one) 3. I love my life and wouldn't trade it for anybodies (definitely nor for Jim carrey's life who is someone I feel sorry for) 4) You're so deluded you have grasped onto ridiculous cliche type thinking to help you manage your shitty lot in life.  (Here's a tip, start thinking for yourself.)

Hope this helps  Grin

Carrey was invited to speak at a college graduation. It's safe to say the folk who invited him view him as a success. Who do you expect them to stick up there, the local wino?

From the looks of it. Carrey hardly came from a "privileged" background.

And there are a number of people, not necessarily millionaires, who speak to young people about success in life.

But, if it makes YOU feel better that nearly everyone with more money/fame/prestige/whatever-you-value-most-in-life just got lucky, knock yourself out. But, you may find yourself looking a bit green after while.
One, I don't think Jim Carrey is a success, I prefer my life to his any day.  Second, I don't envy any human being and thirdly, yes I believe life is a roll of the dice, there is no rhyme or reason to it, no recognisable logic, just randomness resulting in good and bad fortune. You are free to think what you like, I just call it as I see it.

You generally come across as a decent guy but that is a seriously stupid comment.

We all have to get on.  When you win a fight you can keep your victim crushed so he hates you forever or try to intelligently put him back together.  This is what happened in Europe when there would have been a very strong argument to crush Germany completely.  One problem with post WW1 politics is that they hammered Germany too hard allowing the Nazis to ultimately gain leverage.

You keep saying that it's a fight to survive but you fail to address what caused this in the first place.  If I came along, smashed the shit out of you, moved into your house and made you live in a hut at the bottom of what used to be your garden, wtf would you think of me? I'd either have to kill you completely (and then all your friends and extended family will hate me forever) or say "Sorry AJ, this isn't ideal but I had to do it.  Here's some nice new houses, money and education for you and your kids.  One day we can put this behind us".

If you want to think about proportionate response, some Americans were killed by Ukrainians funded by Russia.  The Israeli way would be to blast Russia (if they could bully it).  Thankfully Americans are much smarter.

Palestinians themselves are the offspring of Jerusalem invaders. Nobody stole any land, Merchants purchased Israel.  Israel was once barren and the Jews made the desert bloom, drained swamps, cleared water channels, reclaimed wasteland, forested bare hills, cleared rocks, and removed salt from the soil and created a prosperous democratic society.

And how on earth can you believe Palestinians are fighting back, every ARAB state surrounding Israel has declared was on israel at one point or another.  And every time they get their arses kicked.  Palestinians are like the schoolyard bully who picks fights constantly and regualrly gets their arses kicked because their too dumb to fight within their weight limit.  Palestine has made no secret of it's deep seated hatred for the Jew and it's desire to commit genocide against the race.  Don't get sucked into the Muslim propaganda, Palestinians are a lying, immoral, moronic and pathetic people who deserve everything they get and more.

The Palestinians and Muslims in general remind me  of a spoilt child, whose parents always indulge his every desire.  If the child doesn't get his own way he terrorisies, provokes and harrases his parents until they give in.  Such a child believes he has the right to provoke and annoy even a sleeping lion, pulling it's tail and pulling it's mane.  And when the powerful lion finally has enough and mauls the child, the child then wants the parents to kill the lion. Supporters of HAMAS and Palestine are like the parents of such a spoiled child.

Carrey isn't claiming he's successful, simply because he's rich. He's doing what he loves to do; the fact he makes millions doing such makes it sweeter. The same can be said of the guy to whom I'm listening on radio right now, who has the number one talk show on the airwaves.

Of course he is claiming to be successful, if he was a failure, he sure as hell wouldn't be advocating risking failure.  Many people do what they love to do and don't make millions,but you don't see these people giving lectures about how to achieve such a status.  Only someone with a massive ego would do such a thing.  For someone who is doing what he loves, he sure has suffered his fair share of depression, battling it his whole life.
19  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Jim Carrey: "Why You Shouldn't Fear Failure" on: July 24, 2014, 10:01:13 AM
Cosmic randomness is your new age excuse for relative failure in your life or that off someone else.

And, you make the grave mistake of following the liberal pap that simply working hard should equal success. You can work hard, doing things wrong; or you can work hard, succeed initially, but screw up later, and negate their previous success.

It sounds to me as if you're using "cosmic randomness" as an excuse to fail and justification for envious people to stew in covetousness.
You seem confused, I don't consider myself a failure and I don't consider Jim Carrey a success, I actually feel sorry for people like Jim Carrey, as their life is not their own, he got sucked into the mainstream concept of success and lost himself in the process.  His lifelong battle with depression reveals his failure to achieve a life he is content with.  And are you just making it up as you go along, the concept of luck is far from new age.  There is no formula for success, if there was, everybody would be successful, they would just do a,b and c and voila, success.  I hate to break it to you but there is no reason why 5 year old children die of cancer and nazi war criminals live healthy prosperous lives until they are 90.  Like I said, if it makes you feel better to think you are steering the ship, be my guest, but don't be surprised when life offers up countless evidence to the contrary.

Jim Carrey is one of a kind, the roles he's done in Hollywood cannot be duplicated by any other living actor.

Fuck off, the guy is 100% unoriginal, he has made a living being a clone of Jerry Lewis.

The flip side is people who are envious of those in privileged positions like to think that the objects of their disdain just got lucky. It soothes their ego and excuses their relative lack of accomplishment.

Or as they say, luck equals preparation plus opportunity.
Personally, I couldn't think of anything worse than to be rich and famous and a puppet to even more rich and famous people.  Just because you have more wealth than others doesn't mean you are successful.  This is the mistake people like Jim Carrey make, pretending he is successful,   while those who haven't made a fortune are failures.  In my eyes, the majority of these types of people are failures, they have sold out and live disingenuously.  But I understand it's important for the average punter who is deeply unsatisfied with his life and feeds into the Cultural relativism of the day to have something to aspire to even if only subconsciously they know they will never achieve it regardless of how hard they work or how much failure they risk.

For every Jim Carrey there are countless others treading the same path with as much talent and working just as hard and risking failure who never make it.  Good fortune is the secret, but fame and wealth gets to people and their egos start telling them how great they are and how they are more deserving etc etc.   For most people they can't stand the thought that success and failure are down to cosmic randomness with no apparent logic guiding the process.  They prefer to believe they control their destinies regardless of how much evidence their is to the contrary.

If you actually believe ridiculous new age cliches like " luck equals preparation plus opportunity." you have no concept of what luck actually is. But if believing in ridiculous slogans helps you get through the day, then so be it.

People in privileged positions always believe they did something special to earn such good fortune. It makes them feel better to think they are smarter, harder working, better looking etc etc. It would be way too much of a blow to their ego to acknowledge in the Universal lottery of organised chaos they just got lucky.

Who won't stay and be their human shields.

And then everyone wonders why there are so many civilian casualties in Palestine...
If Hamas cared even one bit about their people they would evacuate buildings instead of stuffing them full of civilians to then cry to the international community that Israel is targeting civilians.
It's baffling how any reasonable person can support these terrorists.  I guess there are a lot of gullible and naive people in the world who fail to know when a people bring troubles onto themselves.
