Stopping Psychopaths While They’re Young
I even know
like I’m a borderline psychopath,
a near psychopath
or a pro-social psychopath.
In a way I’m a lucky psychopath.
In the sense that
I grew up with in such a wonderful family.
In the family,
my interactions with my mother and father,
my aunts and uncles,
everybody around me.
They knew that something is wrong
and they treated me really unbelievably.
So I had this wonderful,
this wonderful upbringing.
My mother and a couple of her sisters,
they, I think they had a good instincts about this.
And they kept me away from things.
And when I had gone through a very kind of a dark period,
in when I was going through puberty,
and she knew some was really wrong.
And she talked to some of the teachers.
And made sure
that was very busy
每天都这样 我在 你知道
So everyday, I was in, you know,
I was in five
Walter high school in college.
And also it’s very active, contact sports,
and I was involved in the drama club,
and in the band I played instrument.
And it was like I always doing something.
And I think that probably
she knew that for a kid, that’s a good thing.
I was always successful.
I always knew that I wanted to be, l always did well at school.
So I never needed money,
I never needed power,
and I just thought to myself.
What if I did,
What if I did.
What if I wasn’t so lucky in all these ways?
And I don’t feel any guilt about being lucky.
You know, I’m happy it happened.
But I was just thinking, and you know,
I could turned out much differently.
But I think that’s so bad
because I think I was treated so well.
That trigger wasn’t pull down the genes.
You know there is a couple of genes that I do have.
It was a serotonin transporter
that if you’re earlier in life,
if you’re brought into an abusive or an abandonment situations,
it’s very bad for your ultimate development.
but if you, you have that same allele,
the serotonin transporter allele,
and you shown a lot of love.
It has the opposite effect,
it kind of negates the other negative things.
So this was amazing.
So it really made sense,
and it really is like a biological hardcore reason
to be good,
to your kids,
your familys’ kids,
said neighborhood kids.
Because if you just say it
sounds like happy to all.
当然 现在我们厌恶战争 这挺好的
Great, now we hate war, be nicely.
But there is real biological reasons for it.
I think it’s very compelling,
and that has been exciting,
because, for me, it is exciting.
because it’s scientifically interesting.
It opens up something about the universe.
And that’s what drives me,
it really does.
And if it didn’t, it wouldn’t.
But on the side,
I knew that I was really lucky to.
