In Episode 002, Dianne delves into the very terms used to define a psychopath and some of the attributes they may exhibit. She shares a story of a psychopath’s co-mingled diagnosis and discusses how a psychopath used the guise of kindness in The Fake Rockefeller. Who do psychopaths choose as victims? Why do some psychopaths pretend to be kind and caring? Tune in as Dianne discusses the complicated nature of defining a psychopath, why they try to blend into the crowd, and how being kind and caring can make you a token victim.
