This is a sobering reality. Lizze was watching Dr. Phil on her phone this afternoon and apparently the show was about cult leaders and sociopaths. During the show, Dr. Phil had this list up on the screen.
The list is called the Evil Eight.
Basically, there are people that he refers to as BAITER’s. Back stabbers, Abusers, Importers, Takers, Exploiter’s and or Reckless People.
1) Arrogant entitlement
2) Lack empathy
3) No remorse/guilt
5) Thrive on drama
6) Brag about outsmarting
7) Short-term relationships
8) Fantasy world/delusional
There’s way more to the story but this is it in a nutshell.
Here’s what’s interesting. This list describes Gavin to a tee and that’s really disturbing. The only item on the list that’s even remotely questionable is number 7.
Now I’m not sure that this is the de facto way to identify a sociopath but it’s certainly concerning that he scores at least 7/8 on this list. It also goes along with what we’ve already known and suspected.
It doesn’t mean that Gavin is evil. It just means that he’s going to have a rough time making good decisions and decisions that don’t hurt the people around him because he’s incapable of feeling remorse. Without a moral compass to guide him, he’s much more likely to hurt people and do things to get in trouble because he’s living life without a conscience…..
This is why we are trying so desperately to keep him moving along a straight and arrow path. At least as straight and narrow as possible..
