jerry_sito: We make daily food offerings to Dorje Shugden and this is today's food offering to our gracious protector. It is important to make offerings to our protector daily in order to generate the merits for Him to help us spiritually and in our secular life. In Tibet we offered torma daily to the protector. Tormas are made of barley flour, sugar, yoghurt, milk, butter and some other medicinal ingredients. But H.H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche said to Tibetans that is delicious but for non-Tibetans tormas doesn't seem practical daily so it's okay to offer the food we like on our personal altars. Of course for pujas in Kechara House and it's puja department they are very adept in making tormas and they can continue doing so. But for daily home offerings, delicious vegetarian food is nice to offer to holy Dorje Shugden or any Buddha. ~ H.E.

Pastor Shin: Dear Lobsang Chinzun,
Welcome to the blog chat. I'm so sorry to hear that you were thrown out of the monastery for your devotion to Dorje Shugden. It is unfair and sad that Dorje Shugden practitioners are ostracised and discriminated just because of their religion. Please email me at shin.tan@kechara.com and tell me more about yourself, we are always looking for volunteers to help promote the cause of lifting the ban on Dorje Shugden, as well promote the lineage of Je Rinpoche & Dorje Shugden. I look forward to your email.

Please check out the Dorje Shugden categories here on H.E. Tsem Rinpoche's blog >>> http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/category/dorje-shugden

Choong: Dear @Lobsang Chinzun, welcome to the blog of H.E. the 25th Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. Your help is very much greatly appreciated.

One of the ways to help educate the world about Dorje Shugden would be to share articles and videos from this blog and www.dorjeshugden.org.

Thank you and I wish you the best in your practices. See you on this blogchat soon!

Mark S: @ Lobsang Chinzun. Tashi Delek from Canada. I am sure you will be a great help here on the blog. Looking forward to your contributing. I thank you for sharing your struggles and inspiration for supporting and propitiating Dorje Shugden. May you be happy, may you be well.

Pastor Jean Ai: These are the heartbreaking scenes we see over and over again, that we share in the hopes of telling the stories of those who otherwise would have suffered and vanished from this earth without a trace. This is Norma Jean. Free for a little over five months, she knew more happiness than millions of her sisters ever will. But she couldn’t escape the fate genetically programmed into her as an egg producing machine. She seemed more lethargic than usual this morning, so we brought her inside to administer fluids and antibiotics in the hopes of pulling her through until we could get her in to see our vet. She couldn’t hang on. She died this evening shortly after this video was taken, severely infected from the rotting egg yolk adhered to various organs throughout her abdominal cavity. Like virtually every single one of her sisters, caged or free range, rescued or not, she paid the ultimate price for eggs (from FB) http://video.tsemtulku.com/chat-videos/chat-1503213557.mp4
20 Aug 17, 10:32 PM
Liang Jing: Question 3: How do you feel after reading the article? Ans: I think this article is nice. I feel we must help the psychopaths, showing care and help.
20 Aug 17, 10:19 PM
Liang Jing: *Question 2: What kind of experiment was performed and what is the cause of psychopathy? ANS: took a mobile brain scanner to 50 incarcerated prison inmates that had shown psychopathic tendencies in the past. While hooked up to the MRI machine, the prisoners were then given a “delayed gratification” test, wherein they had to decide whether to take less money from a pile sooner, or wait and get more money hours down the line. the MRI scanners were looking at two key regions of the brain – one that is associated with “mental time travel”, which allows us to think about the future consequences of our actions, and one that is associated with more immediate decision-making.
[b
The team found that the wiring between these two sections of the brain was far weaker in the more psychopathic inmates
20 Aug 17, 10:13 PM
Beatrix- moderator: @Liang Jing, yes you're right, serial killers may display the same symptoms but that does not define the other people who are not serial killers.

20 Aug 17, 10:09 PM
Liang Jing: Question 1: What is Psychopathy and what are the symptoms of it? ANS: Psychopathy is a fairly common mental disorder that is often associated with serial killers and a lack of empathy for fellow human beings but it also includes many types of people who do not kill.
20 Aug 17, 10:07 PM
Beatrix- moderator: Answer 3: Psychopaths are just like disabled people, except that they are experiencing mental issues. We should not develop hostility towards psychopaths because it is scientifically proven that it's not up to them to control, that doesn't also mean that we should run around with psychopaths but what's important is that we do not develop hatred towards them and segregate them from the rest of the society.
20 Aug 17, 10:07 PM
Beatrix- moderator: @Pavara, yes and I'm glad that you realised that about hem. While some may choose to be bad, there are a majority of them out there where they literally can't help themselves.
20 Aug 17, 10:06 PM
Beatrix- moderator: I agree with you Huey, science has yet to improve. Too bad they don't believe anything without 'scientific evidence".
20 Aug 17, 10:05 PM
Pavara Lam k: Question 3: How do you feel after reading the article? Ans: I always thought psychopaths are just normal people who chose to be bad. But actually being a psychopath means that 1 part of your brain is affected.
20 Aug 17, 10:04 PM
Naomi: Q3 ANS: This article has definitely thought me a lot of things about psychopaths.
20 Aug 17, 10:03 PM
Huey: After reading this article, i feel that modern science has yet to understand psychopathy . Rather than reinventing the wheel; i guess these researchers may find breakthroughs by learning from meditatiors
20 Aug 17, 10:03 PM
Nicklaus san: false
20 Aug 17, 10:03 PM
Nicklaus san: Question 3: How do you feel after reading the article? ANS: I feel that this article kinda thought me a lot on psychopaths and knowing things that was heard from other people was actually flase
20 Aug 17, 10:02 PM
Beatrix- moderator: You are right Edward, people can become psychopathic under some circumstances such as the environment where they grew up. That is what most of us know of, but then there's the other side of explanation which we never knew of until we came across this article.
20 Aug 17, 10:00 PM
Edward Ooi: Question 3: How do you feel after reading the article? Answer: I find this article very interesting and it has taught me why are there psychopaths. I always thought that people "become" psychopathic because of maybe the environment they grew up in, maybe abusive parents.
20 Aug 17, 09:56 PM
Naomi: Question 2: What kind of experiment was performed and what is the cause of psychopathy?

The prisoners were then given a “delayed gratification” test, wherein they had to decide whether to take less money from a pile sooner, or wait and get more money hours down the line.The more impulsive and thus more psychopathic individuals required gratification far sooner, as expected. Individuals with high psychopathy scores showed greater activity in the region of the brain associated with immediate reward. The research team found out that the neurological wiring of psychopaths were different and it made them impulsive and reckless. Psychopaths make decisions on instant gratification.

Huey: In a way.....capitalism is an ideal playground for ambitious psychopaths – climbing the social or career ladders without a thought to those pushed out of the way.

20 Aug 17, 09:51 PM
Huey: The team found that the wiring between these two sections of the brain was far weaker in the more psychopathic inmates. Remarkably, the correlation between the strength of the wiring and the tendency towards impulsivity was so strong that they could use the brain scans alone to correctly predict how many times the inmates had been convicted of crimes

20 Aug 17, 09:44 PM
Pavara Lam k: Question 1: What is Psychopathy and what are the symptoms of it? ANS: Psychopathy is a common metntal disorder that is usually found in serial killers. It’s not identifiable or describable by a sole characteristic; rather, it’s the tendency of a person to show a range of related traits and behaviours. These include a lack of empathy, an ability to become emotionally detached, a poor sense of self-preservation, has anti-authority proclivities, a lack of fear, and unconscientiousness.
20 Aug 17, 09:44 PM
Huey: You're welcome
20 Aug 17, 09:44 PM
Beatrix- moderator: Answer 1: Psychopathy is a mental illness or disorder, sometimes considered synonymous with sociopathy, it is traditionally defined as a personality disorder characterized by persistent antisocial behavior, impaired empathy and remorse, and bold, and egotistical traits.

20 Aug 17, 09:40 PM
Naomi: Question 1: What is Psychopathy and what are the symptoms of it? ANS: Psychopaths are a misunderstood bunch. Some are evil, some are not – but to most, they seem to essentially be peculiar humans with unintelligible motives. Some of the symptoms are lying, lack or guilty and callousness.
20 Aug 17, 09:40 PM
Beatrix- moderator: Hello Huey! Yes you're right, but can you elaborate more on the symptoms?
20 Aug 17, 09:38 PM
Nicklaus san: Question 1: What is Psychopathy and what are the symptoms of it? ANS: It is a mental disorder which will make people have multiple related traits and behaviours and also he/she can be emotionally detached etc.

Sharon Ong: @PJA @Sharon true. Put them in an environment where they have fewer opportunities to act out their psychopathy. Trouble is, prison isn't exactly a rehabilitative environment and when you put psychopaths together with other psychopaths, it there maybe a risk of deepening the psychopathy? What do you think?
You may be right about the risk of deepening psychopathy. Some prisons actually have solitary confinement as a form of treatment for psychopaths to reform.

19 Aug 17, 12:50 PM
Sharon Ong: @PJA Am thinking that by putting the psychopaths in prison is also a form of support. To curb them from endangering their souls further by killing even more.
19 Aug 17, 12:48 PM
Wan Wai Meng: 6. How do you think the research conducted by the Harvard team would help in you in understanding people with psychopathic tendencies? - I think this article is a wake up call for me also, as some of the psychopath tendencies we do certain things to get instant gratification, and to also realize that we can act out such tendencies. To be more aware when I am acting out such tendencies. Also it helps to better understand people who exhibit such tendencies and if we can help them better with a more informed attitude.
19 Aug 17, 12:48 PM
Sharon Ong: Been an interesting morning. Thank you, Rinpoche and everyone!
19 Aug 17, 12:47 PM
Pastor Jean Ai: @Valentina yes but what you deem as supportive and what others deem as supportive is different. I like what Sharon said. We support psychopaths by holding them accountable for their actions. Just as James Fallon's friends held him accountable too. But even then, my guess is people's patience will wear thin and they'll tire of supporting psychopaths in their manipulative behaviors, and eventually isolate them. Like society who can't deal with psychopaths so isolate them in prison.
19 Aug 17, 12:44 PM
Valentina_moderator: Other than decompression treatment - I am not aware of any other treatment that has shown positive results in psychopatic treatment. But reading about Dr. James Fallon's experience, the supportive environmental factors also play an important role in helping people with psychopatic traits to control their behaviour. Therefore, I do think that a supportive environment is another form of treatment for people with psychopatic tendencies.- @Valentina what other treatments are there?
19 Aug 17, 12:44 PM
Joy: Thank you Rinpoche for giving us this platform to exchange and learn.
19 Aug 17, 12:41 PM
Pastor Adeline: I think this this article gave a good summary of Psychopaths and their tendencies. It is good to learn about their behaviours and their mindset. As the findings shown that it was a wiring problem in the Psychopaths brain, they are most likely to be categorised as having a mental illness. However, it also says that not all of them are off the hook, so there are those who understand and have the ability to make a conscious choice to do the right thing.
19 Aug 17, 12:41 PM
Pastor Antoinette: Thank you Rinpoche, thanks Valentina and everyone.
19 Aug 17, 12:40 PM
Soon Huat: Thank You Rinpoche. Thank You Valentina, Pastors, Joy, everyone in chatroom for the wonderful and resourceful blog chat. I really like the questions which really made me think hard for the answer. It seems like there is another interesting blog chat topic next week, looking forward for that. I will read more articles today (I am getting like the blog articles a lot; wish could spend more time on them). Thank You Rinpoche again.
19 Aug 17, 12:40 PM
Pastor Jean Ai: @Sharon I like the distinction you make. It's a matter of civic responsibility to hold psychopaths accountable for their behaviors.
19 Aug 17, 12:39 PM
Pastor Jean Ai: @Valentina what other treatments are there?
19 Aug 17, 12:38 PM
Sharon Ong: @PJA @Sharon "The research helps me understand why psychopaths behave the way they do. It is due to a physical defect that makes them incapable of feeling empathy, have conscience and make right decision." - so based on your conclusion, can they be held responsible for their actions? And SHOULD they be held responsible for their actions?
They cannot be held responsible as they cannot function like normal people who can make a clear distinction between right and wrong. Like how people can get away with murder due to insanity. BUT they SHOULD be held responsible for their actions or else everyone would claim to be a psychopath to get away with crimes and wrongdoings.
19 Aug 17, 12:38 PM
Valentina_moderator: Dear JP - I do read that there is a type of treatment called - decompression treatment that has shown encouraging results to treat people with psychopatic traits. Do read more about it in this article. But I do agree with you that finding a cure for psychopaths are still an area that require further research - http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/current-affairs/understanding-psychopathic-tendencies.html
19 Aug 17, 12:37 PM
Pastor David L: Thank you guys
19 Aug 17, 12:37 PM
Pastor David L: I must say this has been an extremely interesting topic. I think the understanding of psychopath does not let them off the hook and so they still need to take responsibility for their actions. But the research allows us to understand them better and perhaps, it allows psychopaths to understand why they are different and adjust themselves better to be better adjusted in society.
19 Aug 17, 12:37 PM
Mark: Thanks Joy looking forward to your moeration
19 Aug 17, 12:37 PM

19 Aug 17, 12:37 PM
Soon Huat: @Joy, Agreed with you; Buddha has given the Dharma with varous sect to suit different capacity of us, I think one of them could be meditation which could be antidote of pschopathic ----->>However, for those which are already wired differently, they may need some medication first to help them to even get them started on practising Dharma.

Valentina_moderator: Thank you for the information Sharon - yes Sociopath is a type of mental disorder as well just like psychopath. - Just to add on to what WM said. Sociopath is a behavioural/personality disorder while psychopath is a mental illness cause by the physical make up of the brain, causing the brain to function in an abnormal way.
19 Aug 17, 12:34 PM
Pastor Jean Ai: @JP so you're saying there's no hope of them controlling themselves, and the control needs to come in the form of external measures?
19 Aug 17, 12:34 PM
Joy: @SoonHuat this is true----Dharma path is one of the training which make us transform to better person and cut off our negative karma or stop negative karma to continue creeping to future lives ----However, for those which are already wired differently, they may need some medication first to help them to even get them started on practising Dharma.
19 Aug 17, 12:33 PM
Valentina_moderator: 6. How do you think the research conducted by the Harvard team would help in you in understanding people who display psychopathic traits?

The Harvard team research helps me to understand why some people behave the way they do. I recognize some of the psychopathic traits in myself and some of the people that I have met in the past. The information in the article helps me to be aware of the traits within myself that I should control. It also helps me to understand why some people behave the way they do.

Sharon Ong: Just to add on to what WM said. Sociopath is a behavioural/personality disorder while psychopath is a mental illness cause by the physical make up of the brain, causing the brain to function in an abnormal way. >>
4. Are the people who exhibited psychopathic tendencies always violent? Why or why not? - A Some of the people who are violent can be seen clearly in the examples of serial killers. For people who are non violent it can be seen in people who are bankers, CEO's, the police, journalists, surgeons have traits that are shared with people with psychopathic tendencies. Whereby people in those professions speed is of the essence, they need act and react very quickly to their situation. In our blog discussion last Thursday, the people who are not violent who have psychopath tendencies, can be defined as sociopath, they have less defective wiring, don't really psychiatric drugs to help them. These sociopath could be helped with a variety of method help them to see if they keep feedin

19 Aug 17, 12:33 PM
jp: 6. How do you think the research conducted by the Harvard team would help in you in understanding people with psychopathic tendencies? It helps me understand that there is no cure to psychopaths because they are neurogically wired differently. The only way to handle them is to anticipate the damages they can cause and manage it.
19 Aug 17, 12:32 PM
Mark: Sorry guys I have to go. I thought this blog discussion suppose to end at 12pm but so late de. Thanks for all the intersting infos and chats especially CHoong
19 Aug 17, 12:32 PM
Choong: @Mark, I do believe that everything is caused. This sort of self-cherishing behaviour is caused by previous self-cherishing behaviour not corrected, hence it becomes more and more ingrained in the personality.
19 Aug 17, 12:31 PM
Pastor Jean Ai: @Sharon "The research helps me understand why psychopaths behave the way they do. It is due to a physical defect that makes them incapable of feeling empathy, have conscience and make right decision." - so based on your conclusion, can they be held responsible for their actions? And SHOULD they be held responsible for their actions?
19 Aug 17, 12:30 PM
Pastor Jean Ai: @Sofi "those with lesser effect would be functional people that may be around us and greater effect would be those who stood out with their actions, ie. Hitler etc." - aha gotcha, understood :)
19 Aug 17, 12:29 PM

These sociopath could be helped with a variety of method help them to see if they keep feeding their psychopathic tendencies, they could harm more people. the chances of a sociopath being helped is much higher than psychopaths.
19 Aug 17, 12:28 PM
shelly tai: Thank you Rinpoche and everyone in the chat room, today topic is very educational I have learn a lot.
19 Aug 17, 12:27 PM
freon: 6. Through the article , i understand that the Psychopath people have very quick thinking, they do not consider much but they are acting to get the result they want fast. They could be manipulate when they have the objective. When I could see whether the person have the tendency or is already a psychopath, we could guide them by learning dharma. Topic like understand how karma works, Mind transformation could help them, also mantras and pujas to help them
19 Aug 17, 12:27 PM
Joy: 6. How do you think the research conducted by the Harvard team would help in you in understanding people with psychopathic tendencies? The article cup with the latest one on the blog has given further insights into the minds of a psychopath. It also explains that these tendencies are not uncommon in society and could be in fact be someone you know, someone close to you as they can function perfectly in society or contribute to society to a certain extend. It also made me realise not all of them are evil but they are definitely wired differently and if we know of people like this, they should seek help quickly and hopefully with some medication, it can help them, at least stop making others suffer for their actions.
19 Aug 17, 12:27 PM
Sofi: @PJA, those with lesser effect would be functional people that may be around us and greater effect would be those who stood out with their actions, ie. Hitler etc.
19 Aug 17, 12:27 PM
Choong: A6. Not only the Harvard study but many other studies show a pscho-physical link.
19 Aug 17, 12:26 PM
Pastor Jean Ai: QUESTION 6. How do you think the research conducted by the Harvard team would help in you in understanding people who display psychopathic traits? ANSWER: for me, it's understanding that such individuals are motivated by self-interest so speaking to them in the language of altruism, or even compassion, will not appeal to them. Everything has to be couched in such a way as they are convinced they will benefit from whatever it is you're trying to convince them to do.
19 Aug 17, 12:26 PM
Soon Huat: 6. How do you think the research conducted by the Harvard team would help in you in understanding people with psychopathic tendencies?
Answer: After reading the article, I found that most of us might have very similar traits (some but not all) such as naccissm, emotionally detached, a poor sense of self-preservation, has anti-authority proclivities, a lack of fear etc. The postnatal environment or education has trained us to overcome these negative traits or use them in positive ways. This made me think that training can help to develop the wiring of the brain. Dharma path is one of the training which make us transform to better person and cut off our negative karma or stop negative karma to continue creeping to future lives
19 Aug 17, 12:26 PM
Choong: A6. Not only the Harvard study but many other studies show a pscho-physical link.
19 Aug 17, 12:25 PM
Mark: Then what about the genetic and oso environment causes?
19 Aug 17, 12:25 PM
Choong: A6. Not only the Harvard study but many other studies show a pscho-physical link.
19 Aug 17, 12:25 PM
Mark: I dun understand. So you mean psychopath causes is from previous life?
19 Aug 17, 12:24 PM
Choong: @Mark, that your tendencies carry on in the next live(s)
19 Aug 17, 12:23 PM
Mark: Choong what is your meaning about previous lifes?
19 Aug 17, 12:23 PM
Valentina_moderator: Dear Sharon - thank you for pointing that out - let me rephrase the question - 6. How do you think the research conducted by the Harvard team would help in you in understanding people who display psychopathic traits?
19 Aug 17, 12:23 PM
Pastor Jean Ai: @Sofi "lesser or greater effect"? Can you please elaborate?
19 Aug 17, 12:22 PM
Sofi: A6 : It is clear that people with psychopathic tendencies are not necessary evil and with the proper research, medical help may be forth coming with higher accuracy in cure. It would seem that many people have some of the psychopathic traits only difference is in lesser or greater effect.
19 Aug 17, 12:22 PM
Mark: 6. How do you think the research conducted by the Harvard team would help in you in understanding people with psychopathic tendencies? I think for me is understanding some ppl are just selfish so if I want them to think in more selfless way oso not possible withut some kind of treatment.
19 Aug 17, 12:22 PM
Pastor David L: 6. How do you think the research conducted by the Harvard team would help in you in understanding people with psychopathic tendencies? - I think that new research has just proven that old theories that the brain of a psychopath does indeed wired differently. It proves that it is partly a physical impairment and not requires some sort of psychological/medical attention and not just the workings of an innately evil person. It allows some measure of empathy for these people and perhaps a little light at the end of the tunnel eventually in dealing with such people.
19 Aug 17, 12:22 PM
Mark: People always have to correct this moderator yeesh
19 Aug 17, 12:21 PM
Choong: Come to think of it, President Trump could be a reincarnation of Henry the VIII
19 Aug 17, 12:21 PM
Pastor Jean Ai: @Sharon yes! Thank you Sharon for pointing out and reinforcing the distinction yet again. The two are different. One set is diagnosed as psychopaths and the other are people who fall somewhere on the scale
19 Aug 17, 12:20 PM
Sharon Ong: @Valentina, I thought that the research was about psychopaths and not people with psychopathic tendencies
6. How do you think the research conducted by the Harvard team would help in you in understanding people with psychopathic tendencies?
19 Aug 17, 12:20 PM
Choong: Pastor Jean Ai: @Choong would you say that turn on/off function may be another trait of a psychopath or someone with psychopathic tendencies? I don't think they can turn it off because it is a deeply ingrained behavior, likely coming from previous lives too.
19 Aug 17, 12:20 PM
Valentina_moderator: @PJA thank you for the correction. Yes I mean "it is not impossible"
19 Aug 17, 12:20 PM
Chris Chong: Answer 6 : The research made me understand why those psychopath do that things that they do. I will be able to look deeper into their actions of why they are acting in this way. Is it for instant gratification or lack of empathy. This will enable me to work my way around them instead.
19 Aug 17, 12:19 PM
Joy: @Sharon Ong this is a good point you mentioned: I think we need to be able to make a clear distinction between a true psychopath and those with psychopathic tendencies. True psychopaths cannot control due to the way their brain are wired. But those with psychopathic tendencies can be controlled through rehab, medications and Buddhist mind transformation techniques perhaps.
19 Aug 17, 12:19 PM
Pastor Jean Ai: @Valentina A psychopath will engineer the death of 6 million Jews. And he cheated on Eva. And only married her just before he got her to commit suicide.
19 Aug 17, 12:18 PM
Pastor Jean Ai: @Choong did you see a lot of it where you worked? I would assume especially in the financial industry that there would be many examples of people who exhibit psychopathic tendencies
19 Aug 17, 12:18 PM
Pastor Antoinette: King Leopold II used the Congolese people to enslave them and to extract Congolese resources and services. His reign was enforced through work camps, body mutilations, executions, torture, and his private army.
Elisabeth Bathory, it is believed that she was responsible for torturing and killing hundreds of girls from 1585 to 1610.
19 Aug 17, 12:18 PM
Valentina_moderator: Dear Mark - It is interesting that you mentioned Hitler. I came across a reading not long ago that some people argue that Hitler was a sociopath instead of a psychopath - because he still exhibited emphaty for his close circle - to his wife Eva Braun for example. But I do agree that he exhibited a lot of psychopathic tendencies.
19 Aug 17, 12:17 PM
Pastor Jean Ai: @PDL I think Valentina meant to be "but it's not impossible" but she didn't check her sentence and spelling again
19 Aug 17, 12:17 PM
Choong: There's this "I win so you lose mentality" pervasive in the corporate world.
19 Aug 17, 12:16 PM
Pastor David L: @PJA - That's a good one and I am sure they will always keep people wondering if its possible or not...
19 Aug 17, 12:16 PM
Choong: Capitalism or the wealth accumulation is a perfect ground for psychopaths to trample on others because employers and businesses measure success most often in the short term and when compared with others.
19 Aug 17, 12:16 PM
Mark: Not true. There are some clearly right answers, like if I say Hitler is an example of modern psychopath.
19 Aug 17, 12:15 PM
Valentina_moderator: 6. How do you think the research conducted by the Harvard team would help in you in understanding people with psychopathic tendencies?
19 Aug 17, 12:15 PM
Valentina_moderator: 5. Can you name two examples of the well-known psychopaths in history or modern era and describe the psychopathic tendencies they exhibited?

Two examples of well-known psychopaths in history are:
1. Countess Elizabeth Bathory was a Hungarian aristocrat who was obsessed with maintaining her physical youth and beauty. She was very narcissistic and focus on herself. She believed that the method to achieve her objective was by bathing in the blood of young women. It is said that during her lifetime, she had murdered approximately 600 young women to satisfy her need for human blood.
2. Vlad III the Impaler, the prince of Wallachia. Vlad III was famous for his cruelty. He exhibited a lack of empathy in his character. His favorite method of torture was impalement, a method of execution in which an object (e.g., a pole or a hook) was penetrating through the victims’ torso.
19 Aug 17, 12:15 PM
Valentina_moderator: It seems everyone has been giving good examples of people with psychopathic behaviour. there is no right or wrong answers since the personality you mentioned did exhibited some psychopathic traits
19 Aug 17, 12:14 PM
Soon Huat: @Chris, yes you are right :) I think they are typical examples
19 Aug 17, 12:14 PM
Pastor Jean Ai: @Choong would you say that turn on/off function may be another trait of a psychopath or someone with psychopathic tendencies?
19 Aug 17, 12:13 PM
Pastor Jean Ai: @Valentina "I agree with you. it is harder for people who exhibited psychopatic tendencies to exercise control but it is not possible." - what do you mean?
19 Aug 17, 12:13 PM
Choong: Interesting discussion going on about whether psychopaths can control their behaviour/ actions. Turn it on, turn off psychotic behavior.
19 Aug 17, 12:13 PM
Pastor Jean Ai: @Sharon yes, thank you for the reminder. That is an important distinction to remember and make in our answers.
19 Aug 17, 12:12 PM
Valentina_moderator: Yes PJA - I agree with you. it is harder for people who exhibited psychopatic tendencies to exercise control but it is not possible. So they do have to control their behaviour to be accepted by the society or people around them again - @Valentina interesting that you say it's within their control not to lie and manipulate. Since it is in their control, if they do so, then it is on purpose. So I wouldn't blame people for not wanting to stay around someone who refuses to exercise control.
19 Aug 17, 12:12 PM
Sharon Ong: I think we need to be able to make a clear distinction between a true psychopath and those with psychopathic tendencies.

19 Aug 17, 12:11 PM
Pastor Jean Ai: @Choong - can you elaborate on this please? [[Choong: "When you think about it, capitalism is an ideal playground for ambitious psychopaths – climbing the social or career ladders without a thought to those pushed out of the way." - this I can relate to very well.]]
19 Aug 17, 12:11 PM
Pastor David L: 5. Can you name two examples of the well-known psychopaths in history or modern era and describe the psychopathic tendencies they exhibited? - Hitler and Mao Tse Tung perhaps....
19 Aug 17, 12:10 PM
Valentina_moderator: Yes Joy - mentally unfit cannot be used as an excuse. Understanding the genetic factors does help them to become aware of their condition and so they can control their behaviour - @Valentina so based on what you say" someone with psychopatic brain like Dr. James Fallon can make a conscious choice not to manipulate others and to control his psychopatic tendencies. So in the end it is up to the individuals whether they want to control their psychopatic behaviour or not" ---- THIS means they CANNOT give the excuse of "mentally unfit" and hence what they do, is deliberate and on purpose, then wouldn't that be just EVIL which is even worst now that we know a little bit more about this mental illness.
19 Aug 17, 12:10 PM
jp: @pja. Yes pja. It can be seen as a manifestation of extreme selfishness.

Adolf Hitler killed all Jews in order to establish a New Order. King Henry VIII killed 2 wives and murdered manyalong with establishing a new church known as the Protestants. He achieved what he wanted at the expense of others.

19 Aug 17, 12:07 PM
Pastor Adeline: Whether a person has psychopatic behaviour or not, I believe they are in control of doing harm or not. I know people like this who can be extremely sweet and kind, but cold and full lies at the same time. It must be a choice. >>> @Mark: Wah lau! "it is up to the individuals whether they want to control their psychopatic behaviour or not " - so it means if someone lie and manipulate all the time and some more steal, it was their CHOICE is it??? They purposely do? Means everytime they say they didnt mean to, I dun believe them anymore. We shouldn't believe them anymore

19 Aug 17, 12:07 PM
Valentina_moderator: Dear Mark - Yes - the person lie, manipulate and even steal should prove themselves able to control their psychopatic tendencies before other people can believe them again. I do agree with you - Wah lau!

Choong: hahahaa @Soon Huat, it came out
19 Aug 17, 12:06 PM
Pastor Jean Ai: @Choong interesting. I think it's interesting how they can act in such a way that's so far removed from "normal" behavior and they are not moved by it. Or they don't see or care how their behavior is unacceptable.
19 Aug 17, 12:06 PM
Sharon Ong: Soon Huat, good one!
19 Aug 17, 12:06 PM

19 Aug 17, 12:03 PM
Pastor Niral Patel: @Choong. Henry VIII is on the list. Now that's something you wouldn't be taught in schools in the UK. That he commited those acts yes, but they would never label him a psychopath.
19 Aug 17, 12:03 PM
Pastor Jean Ai: @JP so psychopaths are just really, really, really selfish people. The cause of the selfishness remains to be seen, but the psychopathy is what the selfishness results in
19 Aug 17, 12:03 PM
Yau Mun: Q4 Ans: Psychopaths are not always violent. Although it does make those with high psychopathic tendencies appear to be somewhat ruthless and perhaps cold.
19 Aug 17, 12:03 PM
Valentina_moderator: Dear Mark - I do read the article - Ys that is true that people with psychopatic tendencies have a tendencies to choose short term over long term reward. However, they are not crazy individuals. As mentioned in the other article someone with psychopatic brain like Dr. James Fallon can make a conscious choice not to manipulate others and to control his psychopatic tendencies. So in the end it is up to the individuals whether they want to control their psychopatic behaviour or not - Sure ah? But the article says psychopath have trouble to think about long term in future what their action might result in. Wei did you read the article or not???
19 Aug 17, 12:03 PM
Joy: freon: Do you all think Psychopathic is born natural or influent by outer factors that could change the person? ---Hi Freon... based on the other article it says that they are born that way. But on the other extended article it also explained that "Environmental factors experienced during childhood, combined with genetic differences, may contribute to the development of psychopathic personalities" http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/current-affairs/understanding-psychopathic-tendencies.html

19 Aug 17, 12:02 PM

Pastor Jean Ai: @Mark haha Margaret Thatcher. I haven't heard her described as a psychopath before. I think you missed a few people like Pol Pot and Pinochet. And Stalin.
19 Aug 17, 12:00 PM
Chris Chong: Answer 4 : People who exhibited psychopathic tendencies are not always violent. Psychopaths have many way to get what they want and its not necessarily to be the violent way. There are a lot of highly achieved individuals that are psychopaths and they do not exert violence outwardly.
19 Aug 17, 12:00 PM
Mark: 5. Can you name two examples of the well-known psychopaths in history or modern era and describe the psychopathic tendencies they exhibited? Hitler, Mussollini, Mao, Magaret Thatchr. Can kill millions of people and dun feel anything. Okay not Magaret Thatcher lah but the other three
19 Aug 17, 12:00 PM
Choong: Take the examples of a surgeon. It is said that good surgeons are egotistical, demanding, short-tempered, perfectionists, etc. Kind of mildly psychopathic especially when in the surgery room. But they make very good surgeons and save lives!
19 Aug 17, 11:59 AM
Jenn_Yuen: 4. No, not all are violent. Their brain condition is weaker than normal people which lead them to make decision based on short term gratification. They appear to be cold and ruthless but not evil
19 Aug 17, 11:59 AM
Sharon Ong: @Freon, according to the article, the research shows that these psychopaths are born that way. They have a missing portion in front of their brain that makes them incapable to feel empathy or to have a conscience.
19 Aug 17, 11:59 AM
Mark: Sure ah? But the article says psychopath have trouble to think about long term in future what their action might result in. Wei did you read the article or not???

19 Aug 17, 11:58 AM
Valentina_moderator: 4. Are the people who exhibited psychopathic tendencies always violent? Why or why not?

Not all the people who exhibited psychopathic tendencies are violent because none of the psychopathic traits (e.g., lack of empathy, narcissism, poor self preservation, manipulative) automatically make a person crazy or evil although the traits can make them somewhat ruthless and cold. Just because the brains of psychopaths are wired differently, the fact does not necessarily make them evil or monsters. At the end of the day, it is the choices that a person with psychopathic tendencies made that would determine whether s/he would be evil or not.

Valentina_moderator: Dear Mark - I do think that there should be consequences for people who lie and manipulate. It will help them to understand that it is not right to do so- Valentina again dun answer my question "Yah so it means people who lie and manipulate and do the same thing over and over again, they should be given chance issit? Or there should be consequences? "
19 Aug 17, 11:57 AM
Pastor Jean Ai: @Mark that makes sense. So even in the case of psychopaths like Ted Bundy who charmed women by being "all that", eventually they get caught because they're not as "all that" as they like to think they are
19 Aug 17, 11:56 AM
Pastor Jean Ai: @JP based on what you said, it sounds like psychopaths are extremely self-motivated and will also do what they can to avoid harm to themselves, because they're self-serving and self-protecting and don't want to be hurt
19 Aug 17, 11:56 AM
Choong: 4. Are the people who exhibited psychopathic tendencies always violent? Why or why not?

A4. No not always. Because their short term gratification target may be different. Non-violent psychopaths have incredibly useful roles in society for the most part. Think negotiators, surgeons, spies, astronauts, mountaineers and, funnily enough, journalists.

it is said in the article that people with higher wiring of psychopathic tendencies according to the MRI would give a hind of how many times the person was convicted of crimes. Yet, the psychopathic tendencies are also linked to narcissism and manipulation which may be seen in people who climb the social or career ladder but not necessarily express their tendencies violently.

Violent psychopaths can be both good and evil, so to speak – the example of James Bond and Dr. No are often cited in this case. Non-violent psychopaths have incredibly useful roles in society for the most part. Think negotiators, surgeons, spies, astronauts, mountaineers and, funnily enough, journalists.

The team hope that by finding one clearly defined neurological driver of psychopathy, the definition of the condition becomes more scientifically rigorous and tangible. The fact that the brains of psychopaths aren’t unsolvable, impenetrable enigmas, they are just wired differently, and that in itself doesn’t necessarily make them evil or monsters – it just makes them different.

According to the article, what is the cause of psychopathy?
Through MRI , The researchers looks into 2 keys regions of the brain.
1) associated with “mental time travel”
2) associated with more immediate decision-making
Through the test, the team found that the wiring between these two sections of the brain was far weaker in the more psychopathic inmates.

What is the primary motivating factor of individuals who exhibit psychopathic tendencies?
The primary motivating factor, is the correlation between the strength of the wiring and the tendency towards impulsivity was strong
19 Aug 17, 11:43 AM
Pastor Jean Ai: QUESTION: 4. Are the people who exhibited psychopathic tendencies always violent? Why or why not? ANSWER: they're not always violent. Depending on where you fall on the psychopathic spectrum, psychopaths can exhibit some symptoms more than others. So some might be higher functioning individuals, I think like what Joy raised earlier like doctors and CEOs and all that, and they have psychopathic tendencies but they can also function in society without outward violence. But having psychopathic tendencies may mean they are more prone to violence than others...doesn't mean they'll show it though
19 Aug 17, 11:43 AM
Chris Chong: Answer 3 : The research was done on 50 incarcerated prisoners and they were given a "delayed gratification test" to see how impulsive they are on getting instant gratification. It turns out that psychopaths are more likely to be more impulsive on getting rewarded instantly. They also found that the area of brain where instant reward is association to has greater activity. On the other hand, they also found the link between "instant reward" and "mental time travel" regions of the brain is weaker in psychopaths.

The prisoners were then given a “delayed gratification” test, wherein they had to decide whether to take less money from a pile sooner, or wait and get more money hours down the line.The more impulsive and thus more psychopathic individuals required gratification far sooner, as expected.

Choong: normal controls, while their levels of free T4 were lower. The T3 levels in criminal recidivists correlated to psychopathy- and aggression-related personality traits as measured by the Karolinska Scale of Personality. In violent recidivists, a remarkably high correlation was noted between T3 levels and Irritability and Detachment, traits that have previously been linked to the dopaminergic system. Stepwise multiple regression analyses confirmed the relationships of T3 levels and platelet MAO activity with personality traits in criminal recidivists. The predictive validity of biological markers of psychopathy, T3 and platelet MAO, measured during forensic psychiatric investigation, is stable over time. The results indicate chronic alterations of the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis in this group of subjects.

Based on the study at Harvard, that they conducted MRI's on 50 incarcerated prison inmates it is found that a certain region in the brain that deals with instant gratification lights up much more compared to people with less psychopathic tendencies. And this region of the brain they tested is in relation to instant gratification. The researches also looked at the brain portion that was in relation to imagination of a future time, this portion of the brain is associated with, relating to future consequences of our actions. When the inmates were tested with a test with a 'delayed gratification test' , they usually chose instant gratification.

Abstract
This study is a follow-up investigation of a forensic psychiatric sub-population 6-8 years after forensic psychiatric evaluation. The aim was to examine the long-term validity of biological markers of psychopathy and antisocial behavior over time. Data on criminal records were obtained at follow-up from the National Council for Crime Prevention. Basic data included findings of psychiatric and psychological assessments, as well as values for serum triiodothyronine (T3) and free thyroxin (FT4), and platelet monoamine oxidase (MAO) activity, all obtained during the forensic psychiatric examination. Criminal recidivists at follow-up had higher serum T3 levels than non-recidivists, and much higher values than normal co

Valentina_moderator: 3. What was the experiment conducted by Harvard researchers to discover the cause of psychopathy? What did the team find?

The Harvard researchers conducted an experiment that took a mobile brain scanner of 50 prison inmates that had the history of showing psychopathic tendencies. While hooked up to the MRI machine, the prisoners were given a “delayed gratification test,” wherein they had to decide whether to take less money from a pile sooner, or wait and get more money hours down the line.

The MRI scanners were looking at the connection between two key regions of the brain:
1. The region that is associated with “mental time travel” that allows the person to think of the future consequences of our actions, and
2. The region associated with more immediate decision-making.

The team found that more impulsive and thus more psychopathic individuals required gratification far sooner than less psychopathic individuals.

Yau Mun: Q3 Ans: Harvard researchers uncovered the neurological “wiring” that makes psychopaths so impulsive and sometimes dangerously reckless.

The team have concluded that it’s the appeal of the short-term reward that’s really motivating their decisions.

The more impulsive and thus more psychopathic individuals required gratification far sooner, as expected. Individuals with high psychopathy scores showed greater activity in the region of the brain associated with immediate reward.

They conducted MRI scan on 50 incarcerated prison, scanners were looking at two key regions of the brain – one that is associated with “mental time travel”, which allows us to think about the future consequences of our actions, and one that is associated with more immediate decision-making.

They did their study on 50 prisoners who had psychopathic tendencies in their past. In the test, they were faced with delayed gratification and the result did show according to the degree of psychopathy in the MRI. The parts of the brain linked to immediate gratification were more active for people with stronger psychopathic tendencies.

What are some of the known traits of individuals who exhibited psychopathic tendencies? - A Psychopathy is a form of mental disorder and is commonly associated with serial killers and quite a large population of the criminals, it is defined as people who lack empathy. The key trait that supports such a behaviour is that, instant gratification overrides any other consideration in their pursuit of 'happiness'. Other traits that they exhibit is a lack of conscience and lack of care of other people's distress. Another is they can't give a straight answer to you.

• a poor sense of self-preservation,
• has anti-authority proclivities,

The team found that the wiring between these two sections of the brain was far weaker in the more psychopathic inmates. Remarkably, the correlation between the strength of the wiring and the tendency towards impulsivity was so strong that they could use the brain scans alone to correctly predict how many times the inmates had been convicted of crimes.

19 Aug 17, 11:28 AM
Pastor Adeline: A2. The researchers found that the connection between the two key regions in the psychopaths’ brain are weaker than typical normal brains. These two key regions are associated with “mental time travel” that allows a normal brain to think of the future consequences of one’s actions and the one associated with more immediate decision making. The article suggested that the cause of psychopathy is the neurological “wiring” that makes psychopaths impulsive and at times dangerously reckless.
The primary motivating factor of individuals who exhibit psychopathic tendencies is the short-term reward. The more impulsive psychopathic individuals require far sooner gratification.

They found that the more impulsive and thus more psychopathic individuals required gratification far sooner, as expected. Individuals with high psychopathy scores showed greater activity in the region of the brain associated with immediate reward.

Although it’s previously been assumed that it’s their lack of empathy that engenders reckless choices and actions, this team have concluded that it’s the appeal of the short-term reward that’s really motivating their decisions.

Valentina_moderator: Dear PJA - you mentioned a good point that not all the people who experienced trauma in their childhood grow up to be psychopaths because the genetic factor should be there as well. But at the end of the day it is the choice of the individuals that will determine whether they will play out their psychotic tendencies or not

19 Aug 17, 11:24 AM
Pastor Jean Ai: "The primary motivating factor of individuals who exhibit psychopathic tendencies is the short-term reward. The more impulsive psychopathic individuals require far sooner gratification." - that's not true Valentina, the primary motivating factor is not short-term rewards. ONE of them is that, but it is not the main factor

19 Aug 17, 11:23 AM
Pastor Jean Ai: QUESTION: 2. According to the article, what is the cause of psychopathy? What is the primary motivating factor of individuals who exhibit psychopathic tendencies? ANSWER: psychopathy has been linked to genetic and environmental causes. Psychological studies have shown that in the brains of psychopaths, it may be wired differently as it responds differently to non-psychopaths brains. There is also research that demonstrates psychopathy has its roots in environmental factors, yet not all people who experience trauma in their childhood for example grow up to be psychopaths
19 Aug 17, 11:23 AM
Beatrix: 2. According to the article, what is the cause of psychopathy? What is the primary motivating factor of individuals who exhibit psychopathic tendencies? Answer: According to the research, the MRI scanners were looking at two key regions of the brain – one that is associated with “mental time travel”, which allows us to think about the future consequences of our actions, and one that is associated with more immediate decision-making. It is proven that the wiring between these two sections of the brain was far weaker in the more psychopathic inmates. Remarkably, the correlation between the strength of the wiring and the tendency towards impulsivity was so strong that they could use the brain scans alone to correctly predict how many times the inmates had been convicted of crimes.

19 Aug 17, 11:23 AM
Valentina_moderator: 2. According to the article, what is the cause of psychopathy? What is the primary motivating factor of individuals who exhibit psychopathic tendencies?

According to the article, the cause of psychopathy is the neurological “wiring” that makes psychopaths impulsive and at times dangerously reckless. The researchers found that the connection between the two key regions in the psychopaths’ brain associated with “mental time travel” that allows us to think of the future consequences of our actions and the one associated with more immediate decision making are weaker than typical normal brains.

The primary motivating factor of individuals who exhibit psychopathic tendencies is the short-term reward. The more impulsive psychopathic individuals require far sooner gratification.
19 Aug 17, 11:22 AM
Uncle Eddie: Q2-Ans: As said due to the "neurologigal wiring" which made psychopathic so impulsive and ignorantly reckless and dangerous in their choice making of things.

Soon Huat: 2. According to the article, what is the cause of psychopathy? What is the primary motivating factor of individuals who exhibit psychopathic tendencies?
Answer: According to the article, the cause of psychopathy is due to neurological “wiring” in their brain that makes psychopaths so impulsive and sometimes dangerously reckless. They are looking more for short term or immediate rewards

Phoebe Yong: 问题五:『犯错的过程,并不在于错误本身,而是在错误发生后你所采取的行动。』仁波切的这句教诲说明犯错后做什么才是更重要的?答:对与错并不是问题,重点在于我们是否正朝着想要的目标前进。无论我们懂得多少,总会有更多东西是我们不知道的。要铭记这种谦虚的态度,然后从错误中学习,让自己逐渐拥有一个快乐、开放的胸襟。最后,我们将拥有更多的知识可供分享或用以帮助他人。
18 Aug 17, 09:56 PM
贵仁: 问题三:为什么需要发言时却保持沉默不是一件好事?答:会在其中错失很多学习的机会,因为需要发言时发言,会把需要解决的问题 得到解决,还可以从各方面的反驳和反对里学习到平时学不到的经验和思考。
18 Aug 17, 09:55 PM
Alice: 问题五:『犯错的过程,并不在于错误本身,而是在错误发生后你所采取的行动。』仁波切的这句教诲说明犯错后做什么才是更重要的?答:没有什么东西是恒久不变的,我们就拥有改变的能力。关键是我们能改变!朝着想要的目标前进。

Julia Tan: 我们把那个“我”看的非常大!最后这个“我”带我们下地狱咯!

18 Aug 17, 09:53 PM
Phoebe Yong: 其实知识就是就好的武器。:p
18 Aug 17, 09:53 PM
Abby_Foo: 内在的退缩是一种把自己封闭起来的状态,没有韧性,经不起挑战。
18 Aug 17, 09:52 PM
Abby_Foo: 问题四:是什么导致我们内在的退缩? 答案:没有足够的知识又不学习,导致自己更落于人后,然后变得更为沉默。经过一段时间,这种由于缺乏知识而选择沉默的态度,将使我们丧失大量的自信。然后我们将会离开,或以愤怒或各种辩解来掩饰自己的缺乏自信。
18 Aug 17, 09:52 PM
Julia Tan: 问题四:是什么导致我们内在的退缩?答案:跟不上,自己失去信心,怕做错给责怪,丢脸,自己又不肯用功和改变,认为自己没有错,所以选择退缩。
18 Aug 17, 09:52 PM
Abby_Foo: 自我的退缩来自没有自信,然后还找各种理由辩解自己的没有自信。而这个没有自信来自不学习。这就是答案所要表达的。所以,学习是很重要的,知识和技能都是重要的!
18 Aug 17, 09:51 PM
Abby_Foo: 第四题Alice和Phoebe找到正确的答案 :)
18 Aug 17, 09:50 PM
Wylfred Ng: 问题四:是什么导致我们内在的退缩?答案:我执太大, 怕丢脸, 让我们怕错而不敢表达。 久而久之就会更怕而退缩
18 Aug 17, 09:49 PM
Alice: 问题四:是什么导致我们内在的退缩?答:别让别人帮你学习,而你却在一旁闲着,因为这将导致你更落于人后,然后变得更为沉默。经过一段时间,这种由于缺乏知识而选择沉默的态度,将使你丧失大量的自信。然后你将会离开,或以愤怒或各种辩解来掩饰自己的缺乏自信。
18 Aug 17, 09:49 PM

18 Aug 17, 09:49 PM
KarenC: 答(四): 不肯改变。
18 Aug 17, 09:47 PM
Julia Tan: 我以前在开会是也不说活,心情很复杂,担心说错话,丢脸,仁波切说这是因为最终的原因是因为我们并不重视,所以把自己的脸放得比任何世重要。
18 Aug 17, 09:46 PM
Abby_Foo: 问题四:是什么导致我们内在的退缩? )(答案可在文章里找到)
18 Aug 17, 09:45 PM
Wah Ying: 问题三:为什么需要发言时却保持沉默不是一件好事?答:别人学习时你却在一旁闲着只会让你更落于人后,你会变得更为沉默。缺乏知识只会让你选择沉默,将使你失去自信,让你变得更愤怒。
18 Aug 17, 09:44 PM
KarenC: 答(三): 因为当你需要发言时你却不开口,我觉得有很多因素。就如以下所说的,可能是缺乏知识,概念,恐惧,自私,要脸等等。这些都是阻碍我们不去学习,放开我执的缺点。
18 Aug 17, 09:44 PM
Abby_Foo: 保持沉默很多时候是因为我们爱面子不想丢脸,也可以是因为我们觉得事情不重要而漠不关心(如Julia所说的),也可以是我们很骄傲觉得自己没必要为了什么事而多说什么。也可以是正如大家从仁波切的文章中所看到的那样。
18 Aug 17, 09:42 PM
Phoebe Yong: 问题三:为什么需要发言时却保持沉默不是一件好事?答:因为选择逃避,不敢面对失败或怕被人责问。怕被人发现自己的不足,没有足够的知识,可能是不在乎,因为我们已经越来越落后了,要是碍于面子而不去学习,那么我们就会慢慢地就会离开。
18 Aug 17, 09:42 PM
Julia Tan: 问题三:为什么需要发言时却保持沉默不是一件好事?答案: 因为这代表着你漠不关心的态度,你不打算介入因为不想招惹麻烦,也不在乎事情的重要性。
18 Aug 17, 09:41 PM
Alice: 问题三:为什么需要发言时却保持沉默不是一件好事?答:如果保持沉默是为了要掩饰和保护面子,会造成我们什么都学不到。然后会越来越落后和慢慢的离开群体。
18 Aug 17, 09:40 PM
Abby_Foo: Wylfred 和Sock Wan,第三题,你可以提你个人的想法。
18 Aug 17, 09:40 PM
Abby_Foo: Julia好。
18 Aug 17, 09:39 PM
贵仁: 问题三:为什么需要发言时却保持沉默不是一件好事? da
18 Aug 17, 09:39 PM
Sock Wan: 问题三:为什么需要发言时却保持沉默不是一件好事?ANS: 在会议中或需要发言时保持沉默,或许是你没有足够的知识,可能是你不在乎、不想负责任的征兆,也可能是其他原因。由于缺乏知识而选择沉默的态度,将使你丧失大量的自信,然后你将会离开,或以愤怒或各种辩解来掩饰自己的缺乏自信。
18 Aug 17, 09:39 PM
Julia Tan: 大家好!
18 Aug 17, 09:38 PM
Julia Tan: 问题二:『你可以赢回他人的尊重,但所需的时间会比第一回的时候来得长。』你认同这句话吗?为什么要赢回别人的尊重比较困难?答案:认同,因为他人被伤害,另他人失望等于他人对你失去了信心和信赖,你需要做出很大的改变和长时间的做出好的表现来赢回大家对你的信任,然后才会慢慢的放下对你之前犯的错,然后开始对你另眼相看,再重新建立起对你的信赖和尊重,这条路是要很有耐心和漫长的。
18 Aug 17, 09:37 PM
Wylfred Ng: 问题三:为什么需要发言时却保持沉默不是一件好事?答案: 这将导致你更落于人后,然后变得更为沉默。经过一段时间,这种由于缺乏知识而选择沉默的态度,将使你丧失大量的自信。然后你将会离开,或以愤怒或各种辩解来掩饰自己的缺乏自信
18 Aug 17, 09:36 PM
Abby_Foo: 问题三:为什么需要发言时却保持沉默不是一件好事?
18 Aug 17, 09:36 PM
Abby_Foo: Karen说到一个重点,那就是『非常大的转变』。非常大的转变才能赢回别人的信任,也意味着需要付出更多的努力来改变自己。~~认同。因为自己做错事因而伤害了别人,让人失去信心与尊重。所以当我们再要求得到别人的尊重时,除非自己有非常大的转变,不然别人是很难再接受的。 诚信的问题。
18 Aug 17, 09:35 PM
Abby_Foo: Alice,你说的没错。一句没有任何作为、没有任何行动来补偿的『对不起』其实很伤人,也很不尊重对方,尤其当我们令对方失望过。因为我们连道歉都是那么的敷衍。~~因为别人在过去花了很长时间和我们建立信任、友好的感情。一旦我们选择了把责任都推卸给别人,让事情不能在预期完成,给他人承受不少压力和负担。试问有谁可以一下子可以原谅我们?尤其是那些人只是说“对不起”,但完全没有要做出任何努力,更加会令人难以接受。
18 Aug 17, 09:34 PM
Wah Ying: 问题二:『你可以赢回他人的尊重,但所需的时间会比第一回的时候来得长。』你认同这句话吗?为什么要赢回别人的尊重比较困难?答:认同。当一只要帮助的人因为你的种种做法让别人对你失去了信任后,要再次取得他们的信任和帮助就变得比上一次更不容易。
18 Aug 17, 09:33 PM
Abby_Foo: Wylfred提的观点很接地气!确实是这样啊!~~任何东西要营造口碑或品牌都需要比较长的时间。 而打垮名声只需要一件丑闻。 人类就是比较容易被负面新闻吸引
18 Aug 17, 09:33 PM
贵仁: 问题二:『你可以赢回他人的尊重,但所需的时间会比第一回的时候来得长。』你认同这句话吗?为什么要赢回别人的尊重比较困难?答:认同。因为第一次让他人失望了,第二次他人肯定对您会有戒备,失望或戒心,所以要赢回别人再次尊重会更加困难。
18 Aug 17, 09:33 PM
Abby_Foo: Sock Wan,是的,面对别人的质疑,我们肯定需要付出更多倍的努力来证明自己,所以是更不容易的。
18 Aug 17, 09:33 PM
KarenC: 答(二): 认同。因为自己做错事因而伤害了别人,让人失去信心与尊重。所以当我们再要求得到别人的尊重时,除非自己有非常大的转变,不然别人是很难再接受的。 诚信的问题。
18 Aug 17, 09:32 PM
June Kang: 赢回他人的尊重是他人必须信任你,信任一个人有时需要许多年的时间。
18 Aug 17, 09:32 PM
Abby_Foo: Phoebe用的这句谚语用得很恰当。一朝被蛇咬,十年怕井绳。因为没有人愿意再一次上当或被你所利用,或只是纯粹不想再一次经历失望。
18 Aug 17, 09:32 PM
Alice: 问题二:『你可以赢回他人的尊重,但所需的时间会比第一回的时候来得长。』你认同这句话吗?为什么要赢回别人的尊重比较困难?答:非常赞同。因为别人在过去花了很长时间和我们建立信任、友好的感情。一旦我们选择了把责任都推卸给别人,让事情不能在预期完成,给他人承受不少压力和负担。试问有谁可以一下子可以原谅我们?尤其是那些人只是说“对不起”,但完全没有要做出任何努力,更加会令人难以接受。

18 Aug 17, 09:31 PM
Phoebe Yong: 心里的阴影不是一时片刻可以消除的。
18 Aug 17, 09:31 PM
Sock Wan: 问题二:『你可以赢回他人的尊重,但所需的时间会比第一回的时候来得长。』你认同这句话吗?为什么要赢回别人的尊重比较困难?ANS:我认同。如果我们一直都让人家觉得我们不可信赖,做出来的东西都是不好的,人家怎么可能会相信我们、尊重我们。他们还是会质疑我们的。
18 Aug 17, 09:31 PM
Wah Ying: 问题二:『你可以赢回他人的尊重,但所需的时间会比第一回的时候来得长。』你认同这句话吗?为什么要赢回别人的尊重比较困难?答:认同。当别人因为你失去了对你的信任
18 Aug 17, 09:29 PM
Phoebe Yong: 问题二:『你可以赢回他人的尊重,但所需的时间会比第一回的时候来得长。』你认同这句话吗?为什么要赢回别人的尊重比较困难?答: 因为别人被我们伤害过或被我们利用过,所以对我们没有信心了。所谓:一朝被蛇咬,十年怕井绳。
18 Aug 17, 09:27 PM
Abby_Foo: Phoebe所说的就是『世间八法』。我们都被『世间八法』所困。~~我们常常要的是完美的和被人赞美,没人要被人批评啊。
18 Aug 17, 09:27 PM
Phoebe Yong: 找到知音人耶!@Alice: 哈哈!原来我也和Phoebe 有想法相似的长辈
18 Aug 17, 09:26 PM
Phoebe Yong: 就是啊!事情可以是好的也可以是坏的。重要的是我们怎样看待事情。我们常常要的是完美的和被人赞美,没人要被人批评啊。
18 Aug 17, 09:25 PM
Abby_Foo: 赞同华盈所说~~不管是你说自己基于生气他人或没有达到你的期望让你逃避某些人,不管原因为何。问题根源根本就不在他人身上,而是在你自己。这样以他人为借口而继续逃避你应该做的事,你应该做出的表现的话,你并没有解决问题。反之,你的愤怒只会随着时间增加。
18 Aug 17, 09:25 PM
Alice: 哈哈!原来我也和Phoebe 有想法相似的长辈~PhoebeYong: 以前小时候,当不小心走路跌倒时,老人家或长辈们都会说:哎哟,都是地上 坏蛋让我的小孩跌倒,打地上。其实是我们自己不小心造成的。不知大家有没有这样的经验?
18 Aug 17, 09:24 PM
Abby_Foo: 问题二:『你可以赢回他人的尊重,但所需的时间会比第一回的时候来得长。』你认同这句话吗?为什么要赢回别人的尊重比较困难?
18 Aug 17, 09:24 PM
Abby_Foo: June,对。没有错的话是来自莲花生大士的教诲。想知道自己的前世,且看今世的遭遇。想知道来世的遭遇,且看今世的作为。
18 Aug 17, 09:23 PM
June Kang: 突然间想通这句话:“我們過去所做的任何一件事,造就了今天的自己,而我們今天做得每一件事,也將造就自己的未來,所有自己遭遇的人生问题,都是自己造成的”。
18 Aug 17, 09:23 PM
Abby_Foo: Phoebe,大人们用心良苦想哄哄小孩啊哈哈哈。但是你说起这个例子倒是让我想起阿底峡尊者说过,地面有很多石子,走起路来我们特别辛苦。我们要嘛就是把地面的所有石子都拾起来,要嘛是穿上靴子保护好自己的脚。请问哪个是更明智的做法呢?
18 Aug 17, 09:21 PM
Abby_Foo: Karen所提及的例子,让我想到自我膨胀的一种现象。这样的人凡事认为自己的见解是独到的,是最好的,然后别人的表现不如自己的预期那就是别人的错。最后甚至把别人的能力不足当成失败和愤怒的“理由”。这样的人会困在失败和悔恨中。
18 Aug 17, 09:21 PM
Phoebe Yong: 以前小时候,当不小心走路跌倒时,老人家或长辈们都会说:哎哟,都是地上 坏蛋让我的小孩跌倒,打地上。其实是我们自己不小心造成的。不知大家有没有这样的经验?

贵仁: 问题一:文章中仁波切写了这么一句教诲『你说自己是基于愤怒或其他情绪而避开他们,这个理由并不见得比你说自己是由于他们的“缺乏表现”而“造成”你的愤怒来得更好。』依照你的理解,这句话的教诲是什么?答:给自己有借口放弃,因为自己根本都没用心去解决问题.
18 Aug 17, 09:19 PM
Abby_Foo: Sock Wan,你讲到一个很重要的点,那就是担当。当我们担起一个责任,我们不会有时间赶到愤怒,讨厌别人。当我们担起责任,我们只会去关心别人,关心事情是否能办到,而不是一味去责怪。~~这句话的意思是其实是说我们用愤怒在推卸责任,如果我们担当的了去解决问题或把事情做好,又怎么会愤怒呢?
18 Aug 17, 09:18 PM
Wah Ying: 问题一:文章中仁波切写了这么一句教诲『你说自己是基于愤怒或其他情绪而避开他们,这个理由并不见得比你说自己是由于他们的“缺乏表现”而“造成”你的愤怒来得更好。』依照你的理解,这句话的教诲是什么?答案:不管是你说自己基于生气他人或没有达到你的期望让你逃避某些人,不管原因为何。问题根源根本就不在他人身上,而是在你自己。这样以他人为借口而继续逃避你应该做的事,你应该做出的表现的话,你并没有解决问题。反之,你的愤怒只会随着时间增加。
18 Aug 17, 09:18 PM
Abby_Foo: June,对,都是别人的错,错的都是别人,我们自己没有错。这种想法导致我们的愤怒一再一再地升起,永无止境的讨厌所有人,最后只剩下自己。
18 Aug 17, 09:17 PM
KarenC: 我的理解是自己对别人或其他事物都有先入为主的成分及投射,期望,然后我们会不自觉地对别人加以投射自己的看法,所以当别人不能做到我们期望内的事时,我们负面的情绪会先涌上,甚至不理智地责怪别人的过错。其实全部都是来自我执。
18 Aug 17, 09:17 PM
Abby_Foo: Lim,是的,把自己的失败归咎在别人头上的态度,比失败本身,更是不堪。失败不可耻,可耻的是我们没有自我反省还要怪罪他人~~别人再怎么缺乏能力,也不应该是你感到愤怒、什么都不做的理由。而且这样怪罪别人的行为,是更要不得的!
18 Aug 17, 09:16 PM
Abby_Foo: Alice,你说到借口,仁波切的这句教诲,也就是提及我们找借口的例子,而在这句话里头,这个借口,就是别人,别人的错,别人导致我们愤怒。~~我的理解是不要为自己找借口。无论出现了什么问题,都要勇于面对、接受、然后找出方案解决问题。一天不面对和解决问题,那么同一个问题,会一直的重覆,只是可能在不同时间或情况出现吧了。
18 Aug 17, 09:15 PM

18 Aug 17, 09:15 PM
Abby_Foo: Wylfred,你说的没错。与其说是别人的问题,倒不如反省自己。因为我们有很大的投射和固有观念,别人都总是有问题的,难道我们都讨厌每个人吗?难道我们就什么都不做了吗?~~教诲就是其实很多问题都是源自于我们, 而并不是外在的人或事物影响我们。 很多时候我们会用外在的藉口来掩饰我们的过错
18 Aug 17, 09:14 PM
June Kang: 同样都是指责他人的错,我没有错.是一个藉口来掩饰我们的过错。
18 Aug 17, 09:13 PM
