"Transpersonification"[edit]

I've removed the section on "transpersonification".[1] It appears to be sourced from a single book, and one of the listed authors is, er, see for yourself... http://www.google.com/search?q=Laura+Knight+Jadczyk The article as a whole needs more sources and the attention of someone who actually understands this stuff.--ZooGuard (talk) 14:47, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

"Laura Knight Jadczyk talks to reptilian space aliens on a ouija board." That means she's great, right? I mean, I wouldn't know how to do that. --Idiot numbre 188 (talk) 16:28, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

The book "Political Ponerology" by Andrew Lobaczewski is the earliest source of "transpersonification" idea as it pertains to Psychopaths as far as I can tell. Its available at this link http://ponerology.com/ or through Amazon.com. --Turpin (talk) 16:28, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

BoN's Booklist[edit]

This looks a bit suspect to me but I don't know enough to judge. Does anyone else have any views. Jack Hughes (talk) 13:11, 17 August 2011 (UTC)

I removed it. It looked too much like "giving a psychiatric diagnosis to people someone doesn't like".--ZooGuard (talk) 17:08, 1 September 2011 (UTC)

Skepticism[edit]

Heather Berlin, Steve Novella, Jon Ronson, and Brian Wecht participated in a panel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PNLncBs0HSo where they presented very solid evidence to cast doubt on the existence of 'psychopathy' as a clear medical condition. I'm not going to include this discussion in the article just yet, but I think it deserves at least a discussion in the talk page. Klkevelson (talk) 21:49, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

Knight-Jadczyk quotes[edit]

Noticed @CheeseburgerFace added those quotes and references on April Fools' Day and they haven't been removed, so...congrats on the troll!

Also I feel this is a good time to announce a couple years ago when I was suffering from mental issues more I believed in some crazy things, including the kind of stuff LKJ promotes, and that may be reflected in my edits back then, but I'm feeling better and I don't believe that stuff anymore.
