Bill Eddy\s new book “Why we Elect Narcissists and Sociopaths?”shares how his experience as a lawyer, mediator, and therapist led him to several years of research into what is happening with politics today. The first way we can stop electing narcissists and sociopaths is being able to spot a political candidate that is seeking power and control. Bill describes his definition of High Conflict People (HCP) and how it maps to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorder (DSM) created by the American Psychiatric Association. He describes the key characteristics you should look for in any relationship and in electing officials and his six month to one year metric. Narcissists and Sociopaths prey on our emotions and create conflict. This is mirrored in media that feeds off our need to blame, have an enemy, and a story narrative. Why does GOT and House of Cards feeds our delusion? How can we be careful not to let our passion for drama affect our day-to-day lives? When our emotions hijack our normal state, we operate out of fear. The current population is divided by loyalists, wiled up resistors, mild moderates, and disenchanted dropouts. Our past election demonstrates what happens when wiled up resistors and mild moderators split the vote. Bill offers 5 ways we can stop narcissists and sociopaths from being elected
