Rate this answer an A for awesomely analytical!
Thanks. I studies some psychology about twenty years ago.
Somebody has been studying their Sigmund Freud!
Well, yes that was part of it. But not all of it. I tend to side with Jong more than I do Freud.
Another great psychologist. I'm not sure, but I think the ego, superego, and id are old fashioned now. It's all about brain mapping these days. They have made incredible advances in the study of the brain.
to A Star. That would be a malpractice if you were a real doctor. So would watch out how you drop words with no license .
The argument of whether it goes wrong somewhere in the physical development stage, the nature, or it goes wrong in the socialization stage, the nurture, is an old one. I believe both areas of study to be equally valid.
KT WTF are you talking about? I'm not diagnosing anyone here.
I am not diagnosing anyone here either. I think someone is taking this all too seriously and it isn't Austinstar and it isn't yours truly.
No is applying that to her that she believes in dream catchers ,of the spider woman. The point is no one has applied those words to what she believes sociopath or psychopath I still find her taste in words offensive. But if she claims herself ! Ok!
K&T - If you find my words offensive - Don't read them!
You have said the right thing here Austinstar ,but I always give people the benifit of hearing them out.
I guess all people should not be included.

Very good synopsis of the question!
It is the nature response which does have its merits. Experiments made in the 1950s also argues that nurture can also be a powerful component.
Rod - Nature is the most powerful force we have! Nurture runs a close second.
I think you are judging the subject by imperfect people. Who is to say this is truth because they say it. Many a man has analyzed a situation wrong. Like doctors who misdiagnose many patients . This is so real yet are they big enough to admit it ?
K&T - Strangely enough, I feel the same way about your judgements. I have only postulated a reason for amorality. You seem to think you know what is "so real". Are you big enough to admit that?
Analyzing people as psychopath as not to know all the facts about a person. Just to even relate that diagnoses on a Hp is like telling some one that they have a dreaded disease without knowing their health background .
Sorry Kiss and Tale but science and the question of nature versus nurture or some of each is more to the point than vague mysticism.
To RodMardson I have no problem with your commit if so I would have said so.
I have a problem with Austin Star, who just labeled people that are religeous blame demons evil forces,and satan himself for behavior, we have had words before.
I don't believe Austinstar was talking about every religious person blaming demons, etc for strange behavior. She has stated some religious people. I believe this is true and fair enough.
You are not Austinstar ,she has spoken before and said offensive commits,you can believe what you want ,but right now she used the terms on this thread. And I am not moved to think different, the point she applied that statement to anyone is still of
K&T - Do you have any sort of grip on reality? I'm sorry if I offend you, but all I can do is tell you to ignore me.
And thanks Austinstar for the nice words of sorry ! I can accept that. And I appreciate it coming from you!

Kiss andTales says
The difference here is that most people realize that these tales are legends and that dreamcatchers function more like a decorative piece of art. They don't rule their life with myths and legends, They don't insist that everyone believe in the myths.
No that is what they stand for story tellers admit this is legend ,or a simple folk lore tale. Yet you believe in that.
But when some one believes in God you attack their belief ,how hypocritical that is.
I'm not 'attacking' people who believe in God. Why do you think that? I am stating my own beliefs just like you are.
You attack by your choice of words ,one you just used, psychopath ! What is right with that relating people who believe in certain things , since you believe in the spider woman then that must include yourself!
I don't "believe" in the spiderwoman. I said it was a legend. I also said "I suspect psychopathy". Obviously, you need to consult a dictionary to learn what "attack" means.
You still applied those words and thought to the thread,I find offensive.
So far that is what dream catchers represent you believe in them. So now
You twist your words and thoughts into another direction . Your mask has fallen.
Believe what you will. And so will I.
If you want to make a proper study of masks Kiss and Tales do study the works of Carl Jung. Outside of that take it easy and accept the fact that science and men and women of medicine have a place in this world as well as medicine men.
To RodMardson you are attaching yourself to Austinstar in her statement that I still find offensive yet you bring up medicine man , I never said anything about a medicine man. if I called you a psychopath ,and a sociopath for believing that Ok!
