Just in case no one chose to click on the link, I thought this might be interesting....

Profile of the Sociopath

* Glibness and Superficial Charm

* Manipulative and Conning
They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.

* Grandiose Sense of Self
Feels entitled to certain things as "their right."

* Pathological Lying
Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.

* Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.

* Shallow Emotions
When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.

* Incapacity for Love

* Need for Stimulation
Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common.

* Callousness/Lack of Empathy
Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others' feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.

* Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim. Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others.

* Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency
Usually has a history of behavioral and academic difficulties, yet "gets by" by conning others. Problems in making and keeping friends; aberrant behaviors such as cruelty to people or animals, stealing, etc.

* Irresponsibility/Unreliability
Not concerned about wrecking others' lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.

* Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity
Promiscuity, child sexual abuse, rape and sexual acting out of all sorts.

* Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future, poor work ethic but exploits others effectively.

* Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution. Changes life story readily.

Other Related Qualities:

1. Contemptuous of those who seek to understand them
2. Does not perceive that anything is wrong with them
3. Authoritarian
4. Secretive
5. Paranoid
6. Only rarely in difficulty with the law, but seeks out situations where their tyrannical behavior will be tolerated, condoned, or admired. Hmmmm.......
7. Conventional appearance
8. Goal of enslavement of their victim(s)
9. Exercises despotic control over every aspect of the victim's life
10. Has an emotional need to justify their crimes and therefore needs their victim's affirmation (respect, gratitude and love)
11. Ultimate goal is the creation of a willing victim
12. Incapable of real human attachment to another
13. Unable to feel remorse or guilt
14. Extreme narcissism and grandiose
15. May state readily that their goal is to rule the world


Sound familiar to anyone?

Ophthalmology Management
August 2000

The Making of an Ophthalmologist
By: John B. Pinto

Excerpt:

Quote:
And so it goes. The results of perfectionism are wonderful for your patients, and even pretty great from the perspective of most eye doctors. But taken to even slight extremes, the behaviors that create the outward hallmarks of the "ophthalmic personality" can lead to stressed staff, abused patients and -- at least emotionally -- abandoned families.

Dr. Scott Diener, a southern California psychologist, has worked with high-intensity surgeons. He's developed several educated theories about the makeup of upper-crust doctors that are in accord with my own observations as a layman.

"What's the difference between highly trained, highly stressed, highly compensated surgeons and the general public?" Dr. Diener asks. "If you look overall at their history, they have dissociated from some of the normal dynamics in life. If you go through medical school, a rigorous training where you have no life of your own for a very long time, there is really just one focus -- and necessarily so. You don't make it unless this is your total focus.

"I think this training, this focus, ends up acting as a filter so that only certain kinds of personalities come through. And probably the overriding personality characteristic would be narcissism.

How many people have to speak out until the board of Financial and Professional Regulation realize that this surgeon is, very likely, insane?

http://db.ratemds.com/social/?q=node/28873&did=128749

If any patients, or potential patients, of Dr. JOSEPH KIERNAN's are reading this, please realize that a very small percentage of people realize that they have been abused (surgically, or otherwise). From that percentage, an even smaller percentage of people speak out against this "doctor". This is most likely due to fear of lawsuits, harassment, etc... Please realize that you are not the only one that this "doctor" has harmed. Many people are out there, more MUST speak out! If you will not speak out for yourself, speak out for all the children, mothers, fathers, doctors, priests, humanitarians, libertarians, etc., that this "doctor" will not hesitate to mutilate. TAKE A STAND!
