I have never done a post with a poll so I hope I have done this one correctly. You do have the option of more than one choice. With the death of a serial murderer/rapist, and the very good thread on diabetes, my thoughts turned to incurables. In this thread, I would like for folks to give their opinion primarily on these two conditions that are held by the medical/psychological community as incurable. Narcissism Psychopathy I know there are others that can be added to the list (OCD, Autism, Tourette Syndrome, ADHD, Schizophrenia, Paranoia, ...) However, in each of the above, there is medical attention that can be used to lessen the impact or even somewhat control the manifestations. What this thread desires to answer is: Can one who is a Psychopath or Narcissistic actually be saved/cured? NOTE 1: No child (to my understanding) is born with these (Psychopathy, Narcissism) but I have witnessed the beginning manifestations in children as young as four. NOTE 2: This thread is not to discuss YOUR problems or to demean anyone who has a problem. NOTE 3: Please feel free to use your own anecdotes and any known experiential situations that might help clarify your view. NOTE 4: None of the above notes are meant to limit the discussion as long as it remains edifying.
