Why is it common in people with Conduct Disorder and Antisocial Personality Disorder?
Please don’t tell me about other conditions that have it because I’m not interested, I’m only interested in those two.
And also what percentage of these people with Conduct Disorder/Antisocial Personality Disorder act on their homicidal fantasies?
If you could contribute even just a little bit it would be appreciated.
Well, first you’d have to believe that those disorders you mentioned actually exist, and I don’t believe that they do. As a psychologist, I believe that most so-called disorders are contrived and made up in order to get funding and other bogus political reasons. Someone with conduct disorder or antisocial personality disorder is basically what we’d call a jerk, right?
I have homicidal fantasies, and I most certainly am not going to carry them out. That’s what makes them fantasies. Otherwise, they’d be plans. I might think someone is a total chode and want to hurl them through a window — doesn’t mean I have a disorder, and it doesn’t mean I’m going to do it. I can barely lift a gallon of milk comfortably, let alone a person! My father used to constantly tell me he wished he “could” kill me, and he “could” have, but he was afraid of the criminal justice system that would penalize him for it if he were found out. That’s why he didn’t (he claimed).
Therefore, I don’t think your question, the way that you asked it, begets a clear answer. The DSM describes lots of different disorders, most of which don’t really exist. They’re made-up terms that are subject to the interpretation of individual readers and are essentially meaningless. Homicides seem to most frequently be committed by family members, so that says more about the inter-family relationships than it does about the mental state of the murderers. And what do you consider homicide — do all the murders committed in wars count?
