Dr. Phil: M.E. Wants To Raise Sociopath Children
M.E. has grown afraid of making decisions that have consequences that she can’t foresee, and killing and marriage are two totally related things that she won’t do because of it. Part of her wants to get married because her Mormon beliefs tell her that she should. Another part of her wants to get married to have children. The idea of having little people that she can manipulate and turn into sociopaths is appealing to her. In fact, if one of her children turned out not to be a sociopath, part of her would be disappointed. M.E. is a very dedicated sociopath.
M.E. Does Not Like To Be Guilt Tripped
M.E. thinks that she got this way partially due to genetics and partially due to environmental factors. When her friends try to induce guilt in her for being the way she is, she becomes angry. She gets angry because she feels that they are attacking her just for being who she is. Dr. Phil says he would not guilt her, but would feel bad for the continued cycle of self-destruction that she undergoes every two or three years, because she never gets to fully live her life.
M.E.’s Co-Worker Says That She Doesn’t Feel Affected By Her
It appears that M.E. should clear out her desk and quit her sociopath job, because she doesn’t seem to be as good at manipulating people as she thinks she is. A colleague of M.E.’s called in to say that she doesn’t feel the effects of her manipulation and that she has never observed any of the behavior that M.E. talks about in her book. She was disturbed by what she read, though, and wonders if she could actually be manipulating her. M.E. says that she has never attempted to manipulate her, but does admit to perhaps humoring her sometimes.
Dr. Phil: M.E.’s Co-Worker Feels Bad For Her
M.E.’s co-worker does feel bad that she has to always operate on manipulation and constant restarts. Dr. Phil says that she doesn’t ever get to experience all of her life because she always has to restart, and he hopes that she can break this mold in the future.
