Re: Cretaceous Extinction comments on John Bois
For informational purposes only, to be judgemental, critical,
arrogant, condescending, parental, nuturing are Cluster B
characteristics under DSM IV criteria. They are the hallmarks of the
dependent and/or narcissistic personality. They result from toxic
shame of that individuals core. I point this at
no one lest I be quilty of the same. If someone appears dense to you
and they really are, then that's their problem and not yours. Just
something for you on the list to ponder.
The question now is: Can we understand our stupidity? This is a test
of intellect, not of character. John King Fairbank (1907-91), U.S.
historian, educator. Quoted in: Observer (London, 4 May 1975).
To make this worthy of the list, I would point out that I doubt that
dinosaurs suffered from personality disorders. On the other hand
perhaps a tyrannosaurus might be considered anti-social or even have
a conduct disorder.....
As always, this is only an opinion, subject to
retraction and recall without notice, and with
due respect to others opinions.
