Heightism, Detachment & Sociopathy – The Rules Revisited

Darwin once stated, it is not the strongest that are most likely to survive, but those most adaptable to change. Height elicits expectation, yet it does not determine personality or social standing. Despite what many men and women believe, being restricted by one’s height or weight presents a valuable challenge that would not exist, if modern society was more accepting of its innate diversity. From a historical perspective, this is far from new behaviour. However, there are countless erroneous presumptions associated with height that limit our understanding of how heightism originally came to be.

One of the earliest, common references is that of the “Napoleon Complex”, which denotes an inferiority complex or deep-rooted hang-up with one’s own height. However, the original purpose of this term is rarely analysed, nor it is considered that history is typically written by the victor. Smear campaigns were nothing new. Since we have learnt to paint on cave-walls, we have used visual and/or linguistic mediums to convey useful and impractically vain information. To twist and turn information, regardless of its accuracy stretches back to the beginning of ancient warfare. This leads us to a simple fact: Napoleon Bon Apart (5.6ft / 1.68m) was taller than Horatio Nelson (5.4ft / 1.64m). One would think that such a basic fact could easily be discerned by the masses, however, Nelson was accustomed to taking measures against “looking short”. That being said, when the height difference is below 2 inches or five centimetres, it is fairly easy to play with appearances, but whereas many people nowadays can purchase flats from nearby stores, Nelson had to devise his own methods of altering his appearance.
Nelson understood that height is as physical as it is psychological. Anyone can seem tall, while they truly aren’t. If you are bold enough, you can make anyone believe anything, but let’s not throw all caution to the wind just yet. There are physiological limits without bone-shattering application traditional Chinese surgery. Limitations that cannot be applied to the art of propaganda. He may not have been taller than his opponent, although you wouldn’t know with how much effort he invested in being referred to as the taller out of the two.
To show the extent of how successful his propaganda campaigns actually were…in honour of Nelson’s victory, the column built in Trafalgar Square was designed to be the tallest landmark in all of London. Some historians suggest that it was Nelson’s explicit wish for the highest monument to be dedicated to him, so he could oversee the entirety of the metropolis of London at the time.

As we are judged by our appearance, prior to our actions…Before we even open up our mouth, it is only logical to give yourself the best chances. In the old days, it was easier to make yourself appear taller, smarter and more capable. Nowadays, it has become much harder for anyone to pretend to be something they are not, but it is never impossible. Not for anyone…However, it appears to be easier for taller men to deceive women than their shorter counterpart. Again, not impossible. The truth is that under the right circumstances, people will turn a blind eye to almost anything, if they are otherwise occupied…They will disregard height differences, personal disagreements and even the most heart-wrenching betrayals, when the appeal to their self-interest is sufficient. Although the interests of one or more people may be temporarily aligned, that does not guarantee any form of loyalty or respect once they are not. In fact, short men and women live longer, when they’re weary of the company they keep. It is one thing to be useful, but to be repeatedly used as a stepping stone is a fate no one should settle for, regardless of their stature.

Height & Intelligence

History is full of examples, where height serves as an indicator of high intelligence or brute force. Whereas some geniuses are born, most forms of intelligence are cultivated and developed over time. In other words, every human being has the potential to enhance their natural abilities or fight against them. Whereas many living beings are driven by instinct, we have the free will to choose. In this, we are given a distinct advantage. Through conscious choice, one can overcome the height-based bias that runs riot in the world. However, we can only free ourselves, we cannot force others into the position to acknowledge the existence or negative impact of heightism.
Being short is not a handy-cap. It does not determine EQ, IQ or intelligence of thought. Here, one has to to bear in mind that the most intelligent of people were never revered throughout history, they were shunned, exiled and often murdered in the most heinous manner. However, where the general cultivation of intelligence is concerned, Jung’s theory on personality development indicates that if you are not athletically- or strength-orientated as a short person, your talent most likely lies elsewhere. Further research into the hidden talents of the “vertically challenged” shows that many excel at communication. Whereas some had to become quick witted by being subjected to abuse, others were born with the gift of the gab. It gives them an irresistible charm that makes them much more successful in the dating game. For those that are still mastering that knack for words, the trick is to say less than necessary.

Needless to mention, there are many different types of intelligence. Although we continue to quantify new forms, quantum physics suggests the avenues of intelligence are infinite. If we can conceive being a genius in a subject in our minds, it is fairly possible to cultivate the knowledge necessary to succeed. That being said, if you weren’t born swimming against the tide, I wouldn’t recommend to start now. Nurture your natural abilities, but keep an open mind. After all, you wouldn’t expect Bach, Tesla or Einstein to abandon their respective fields, for what was expected of them. Truth is not a phenomena of mass-appeal, neither is free will. The most intelligent, remarkable and revered characters throughout history were not recognised for their achievement. They did not need to be. They did what felt right for them, regardless of what society thought of them. That being said, appearance and social standing can easily override intelligence, but it depends very much on the circumstances. In such an occasion, the personality of a person often defines their instinctual reaction. (It should be noted that psychopaths are predominantly prone to react in specific ways, whereas sociopaths often lack a reaction, unless attempting to elicit a specific response.)
As stated before, there is such a thing as too intelligent. However, there are two distinct types of “high intelligence.” As paradoxical as it may seem, the first type of supremely intelligent people, capable of outsmarting the world’s finest, frequently feign ignorance to fit in. Conversely, the second type often lack the social intelligence to not outshine their master (at every turn), unless the right circumstances are in their favour.
For many, high intelligence is frightening. Combined with the lack of height, it is like drawing a bullseye on one’s back. Even if you give someone the right answer or advice, if it’s not you they wanna hear it from, then the entire endeavour is flawed from the outset. At times, we fail to realise just how intelligent those around us are, if our ego prevents us from seeing them for what they are truly capable of.
Tall or not, nothing is as it seems. We can never know anyone by their appearance or glimpses of their personality. Even the type or level intelligence only serves us to a limits degree. Truth is only time reveals the reality of a person and/or situation. Hitler considered to the Jews to be of lower intelligence. Before then, men thought of women as less intelligent. And the time before that, it was African Americans. For someone to be superior, some has to be viewed as inferior. The more superior someone is, the more inferior another becomes. In a way, it is the cycle and sway of power. Without a smidgen of humility or compassion toward their opponent, people rise to inconceivable heights. However, they must invariably fall from their high horse in this life or the next. Regardless of how sly or intelligent, no one can escape the moral consequences of their behaviour toward themselves or others. So, think twice before acting out revenge or ill-will…Think twice before judging yourself based on appearance or intelligence. Beauty and intelligence are both in the eye of the beholder. They are malleable, superficial properties that are easily altered, as is what we gain from them. However, the challenge in problem-solving is to realise that we cannot change certain aspects of ourselves, we can only overcome them by denying them the power to act upon us. If we doomed to be short, the most intelligent coping strategy is to make the best of it. Ironically, this is also one of the most effective ways to annoy and irritate those that gain a level of satisfaction from demeaning others. The lack of a reaction/response or even a simple agreement can startle the most determined bully long enough to diffuse tension, but it can also have the exact opposite effect.

Height & Mental Illness

Many short men are either depict as the arrogant smartass, the sly mediator and the cold-blooded sociopath or psychopath. However, how closely related are height and mental well-being? Although it shouldn’t have such detrimental effects, any form of discrimination takes its toll. As height and well-being are indirectly connected through the self-image that is established through childhood and adulthood. Height can never be a definite indicator of sanity and it is ludicrous that some humour this notion. From a professional standpoint, height affects many facets of life, from dating to work opportunities to socialising, which in turn affects mental and emotional health.
Truth be told, just by being short or fat, the chance of getting employed or earning more is significantly lower. After all, it could be argued that any profession that is restricted by height requirements only perpetuates a narrow-minded, inaccurate view of how height determines available career-choices and progression. However, no argument or clever statement can change the reality of the situation.
Although height discrimination has reached the realms of undeniability, that does not stop people from trying. Hell, I would depressed if interview after interview employers would take one look at me and my CV, make some excuse and hired someone half my age with less qualifications but taller. Equal employment opportunities means that it shouldn’t matter if I’m a 4ft grey alien from Alpha Centauri, every living being should have the same opportunity to prove their skills and put food on the table. To be expected to be mentally stable in such conditions is like fighting an endless tide of unrealistic expectations. It should be noted that those who demand often are not expected to deliver, if put in the same position. On a separate note, I’ve noticed short men that have risen above the negative restrictions and implications of heightism rarely associate with other short men, unless carefully selected. They wish to distance themselves as far as they can from being a target, or being associated with anything that threatens the position they have fought to gain. Those that have made it are not all cut-throat, but the majority have had to learn to function in a world of predators. As a consequence, the prey grows far beyond its former predator(s). Whereas some develop anti-social qualities to survive among psychopaths, others choose to steer their moral compass in the opposite direction. They cultivate an air of non-attachment that almost gives them a monk-like presence. They are at peace with who they are. They do not feel the urge to seek justice or vengeance…They only act when acted upon. And I have the deepest empathy for those that have fallen victim to such a powerful force. Few that I know of make it out alive with their ego intact. Some are so emasculated that it stays with them for the rest of their lives (which is most likely equivalent to what they have done to others for being short, fat or otherwise impaired in their opinion).

The Short Sociopath VS The Tall Psychopath

So far in my career, I’ve encountered short and tall sociopaths. However, I’ve always found that my colleagues would find it easier to cope with the 6ft6in than the 5ft4in service user. While episodes of violence were more common for the taller clientele, short men were far more contained but infinitely more vicious when violent. Despite the inherent danger, I’ve always been more comfortable around short sociopaths in comparison to tall psychopaths or sociopaths. Although not all short sociopaths I’ve met socially or professionally have been high functioning, the majority were highly intelligent in their own way. One that society may not be ready to acknowledge just yet, since it has no need to. As stated before, once there is a need, most will say or do anything to fill it…But what happens afterwards entirely depends on the person and circumstance.

The term psychopath and sociopath are often used to describe the worst fears anyone can have about someone we are associated with. Their true nature is thought to be egocentric, merciless and incapable of remorse. The stuff of your worst nightmares… But contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to look far to find a full-blooded psychopath or sociopath. Just switch on your TV. Whereas psychopaths thrive on attention, sociopaths often keep to the shadows. Nonetheless, both can also create shadows from which to operate. Most of us won’t have to look beyond our community to find a borderline psychopath or sociopath. The difference is tall people remain undetected far more often, unless their actions have been witnessed on a large scale. One that is not or cannot be denied.

To explain, the difference between psychopathy and sociopathy on a fundamental level is on a genetic level. Whereas both can have their hereditary roots, emotional processing is affected differently. Psychopaths, although they may not be able to feel, are often driven by an emotional need. Sociopaths are not. However, both disassociate from their emotions to variant degrees. Both are capable of vicious fits of rage, although they are often underplayed when the individual is short.
The most important difference I’ve found in dating a psychopath and a higher functioning sociopath is the need to prey on emotions. Psychopaths appear to have an inherent need to manipulate and deceive that makes them overconfident. The paranoid tendencies of a short sociopath is the textbook example that counters such the deep-rooted emotional need of the stereotypically tall and good looking psychopath.
Height does not differentiate. Since height discrimination has become an everyday occurrence, whether you’re a psychopath, sociopath or just anti-social makes no difference. If you’re short as a male, you’re doomed to be an outsider, but that doesn’t have to be a bad thing. From personal experience, short-statured people like myself either make an invested effort to follow trends or they create their own. As a psychologist, it is my firm opinion that trend-setters are always outsiders. Whether short or tall, they have the confidence to walk their own path.
However, for sociopaths, the end justifies the means. If that means their imprisonment, torture or death, then so be it. Psychopaths, due to their inherent emotional needs, have an in-build weakness, whereas once the mask of a sociopath drops…There is nothing. A vast, infinite void of emotion that drives shivers down your spine. Beyond false anger, there is dead calm silence.
In simple terms, the circuits in the cortex do not connect and/or process emotions properly…like two wires that don’t fully connect. Since they don’t, there is an accumulation of energy, leading to large bursts of emotion, when the buildup is so substantial that the connection is forced.

It is difficult for anyone to let someone close to us see us in our worst light. For sociopaths and psychopaths, the light is merely more revealing than most people can handle. Not all of us were born or conditioned to be a certain way, but none of us deserve the rejected for that fact.
Predators have their uses in any society. Historically, their talents were put to good use in the military. The more psychotic, psychopathic or sociopathic the opponent, the more insane was the person that actually defeated them. In wartimes, you wouldn’t care about the short guy wielding a battle ax like a mad man, unless he is coming toward you. The military has always been in high demand of controllable soldiers that will follow any command to the death, not uncontrollable cannon balls that wreck their projections. Psychopaths gain their power from knowing their place and when to rise above it…Sociopaths will do so regardless, if they wish to.

Being short makes that endeavour slightly more complex, as there is more to conceal and distract from. Playing with appearances is more complicated, as making oneself taller isn’t an option. Surrounding oneself by tall, but genuine, supporters is a frequently used technique. However, the tall selfless wingman that’ll deliver women on a plate is a sheer fantasy, unless they are blackmailed into doing so or persuaded by someone with a higher level power compared to them. I’ve found that when it comes to territory, many men do not remove women from the equation. That being said, women are no longer subject to arranged marriages or career-restraints, but we are just as vulnerable to social engineering. Particularly, in the case of male heightism.
When we become chronically dissatisfied with ourselves, it becomes hard to hide. People sense, feel and see that one person, which drags the group down. On the other hand, every group also has its leader: the alpha male or female. Whereas tall psychopaths or sociopaths often have the opportunity to cosy up to them by replacing the beta…Their short counterpart often has to strike with fierce momentum to displace or even scatter the group (with less beneficial results). In conclusion, height doesn’t affect the severity of a condition, but at times it forces men in the position to overcompensate merely to be noticed. Unfortunately, by the time they are noticed, their reactions have often been torn so far out of proportion that they distract from the issue at hand.

Dating a Higher Functioning Sociopath – Part 2

It should be noted that the mere clinical diagnosis of childhood sociopathy does not equal inevitable doom or the birth of a natural killer. The psychopath for instance is more prone to certain characteristics that are perpetuated by emotion. Certain traits overlap, which will be explain further. Experimentation is a trait experienced more by psychopaths. Sociopaths will experiment socially with the emotions and reactions of others. Due to the lack of emotion that is felt and expressed, the childhood sociopath has to adapt to an environment, which is based upon emotional concepts that they struggle to grasp per their nature. The childhood sociopath requires to learn their own social boundaries. Truth be told, they necessitate early education in ethics around the age of 3 to avoid certain mishaps during the process. Yes, “normal” parents can give birth to a sociopathic infant. Genetics operate through the family-line. It can skip generations. Countless ancestors throughout mankind has fought wars and committed genocide for the sake of a peace that still has not been established.

Traits of the Higher Functioning Sociopath:

1. Charisma & Charm:

The sociopath is a wordsmith…A master of words. They know how to act accordingly to a situation without the bias of emotion. Yet, sociopaths like all others have their own dress-code. It is still a point of genetic and environmental influence that allows for certain traits to flourish. They can adapt to all levels of their society and alter their clothes accordingly. This can also be viewed in their mannerisms and linguistic use, as it will change, according to the individual. They adopt the heir of their surroundings. If they with the rich and powerful, everything about them would lead you to believe that that is their natural place within society. The act would be flawless. Yet, later on the same day, they could be in a drug den and one would naturally assume that they have always been there. Socially inclined sociopaths often become the pillar or bastion of their social environment. At the same time, as becoming the very same pillar for the opposite side of that environment (ie. Both hunter and prey). For only then are you in a true position to control and do as you will.

2. Lack of Connection To The Past

Sociopaths within their social circles, as they can hold both sides of a social spectrum, they have to not care about “the past.”. They will participate in activities with one individual and the same evening, they will engage in an opposing set of activities with another. Often, they will tell others that which they wish to hear. More often than not, this merely saves them the agony of coldly spitting out the truth and becoming a symbol of heresy for doing so.  There is no connection to the time-frame of the past. They could have been wronged at the age of 3 or 33. An experience, perceived negatively by the sociopath, could have occurred at the 3 and at the age of 33, as the best men at the transgressors wedding, the sociopath could snap his neck in front of the aisle for a wrongdoing that occurred 30 years ago. The sociopath does not recognize the difference between the time of incident or level of effect. That can only be learnt through explanation or experience.

3. Ego

Not all narcissists are sociopaths. Not all sociopaths are narcissists. Like with all other human beings, the ego can be controlled and removed. Is it truly ego when you truly can and are willing to do what you are saying? With the childhood sociopath, they grow up knowing it. It is an inbuilt knowledge. The power of will and single-mindedness. Is it truly paranoia, if you’re just? People often forget that the sociopath is right, they get caught up in the biology and emotional effect of the event. The sociopath does not wish to move on until they have coerced the other individual to discuss that which they consider an overly emotional state or reaction. Due to the lack of emotion, it is not necessarily arrogance, it is the lack of care to lie. The truth is often much more effective to place others in a state of discomfort. No one argues the truth. Thus the fallback is emotion, excuses and justification, which the sociopath often shatters in order to unveil the actual truth. Furthermore, ego requires emotion. Ego requires a need or even urge. If it is not ego, then it is merely the knowledge of self. The knowledge of what you are capable of.

4. Deceptive Capabilities

The sociopatb can manipulate and deceive their environment, when the need requires it. Like certain other traits with the sociopath, they can be switched on and off like a light switch. The amount of social control it requires to maintain that many lies, yet only the necessity arises. However, the manipulation is second nature to them. It is who they are. Society often does not allow them to disobey societal conventions. They are disgusted by the hypocrisy, which they face on a daily basis from the individuals around them, due to this so called the constant deceptions that occurs around them whether they participate in it or not. They seek individual that are more themselves, rather than those discussing what Simon Cowell had for dinner last night, which in itself is a manipulation of society that is deceiving the public from the truth in their world and pathological lies that Simon Cowell represents is publicly permitted, if not heralded, is simply hypocrisy, as we all follow.

 5. Sexual Magnetism

As previously mentioned, they are masters at camouflaging themselves physically, mentally and emotionally. Their knowledge of how individuals act and react according to their current social surroundings enables them to appear to proverbial sex-god to their chosen target. Attraction and arousal originate within the mind, due to the sociopaths knowledge of society, anyone is attainable, you just have to know what to do and who to do it to. With those two concept, anything can be achieved. It is however scientifically proven that sociopaths possess a higher testosterone level.

6. Flair for Drama

Once the applied social engineering has been perfected, the sociopath holds all the strings. The sociopath are one of the most uncontrolled type. Whereas most individual possess emotionally based requirements, the sociopath does not, therefore causing them to become the loose cannon, if you wish to control them. In the society of control, the sociopath is naturally on top, as they cannot be controlled. For them, it is either let them live or kill them. By allowing them to live, you permit them to finish that which they wish to complete in life. By killing them, you merely cease their ability to do so. These are the only two ways to stop a sociopath.

7. Predatory Stare

In a world controlled by emotion, everyone is game for the sociopath. Everyone that in controlled by emotion, that is. They have no shame or conscience and cannot take other seriously when they are influenced by emotions. To the sociopath, “normal” individuals are the ones that behave stupidly or ignorantly, once they have entirely lost their presence of mind in a wild tangent of emotion. There is nothing pro-survival about such a state of mind to them. It is a waste of time and energy. It is best to conserve ones energy for more productive matters. If the emotional aspect would be deleted from the ordinary citizen, the occurrence of a traumatic event becomes simple. That which has been clouded by emotions becomes clear. Yet, bear in mind, due to the lack of emotion experienced, they are prone to explosions of anger, if actions do not run according to plan. Although it is the little things, the large things are faced with a calm, emotionless stare. (The predator inclines hunting sheep. The sociopath does not view himself as the fox, hunting the sheep. He views himself as the farmer, culling the herd.)

8. Lack of Conscience

The sociopaths lack of emotional connection inevitable affects his sense of empathy, yet not the sense of understanding. He understands the consequence of stabbing a pencil through the neck, yet to the average human being it is considered an overreaction. The sociopaths fails to recognize it as such by nature. They do not have a punch up. They maim or kill. There is no enjoyment is fighting for them. They do not have the conscience to facilitate the differentiation between right and wrong. They possess no social conscience, no feelings within them that will alert them of the possible unethical nature of their actions. Therefore, childhood sociopaths that have been educated in ethics and socially acceptable behavior know the exact difference between their actions, yet they are still fighting an internal impulse.

{As sociopaths are free from psychosis, sadism, pedophilia, they control on society would be, if not extreme, but humane.}

Heightism & Paedophilia

Criminological Analysis of Heightism

As previously mentioned within my post regarding the chav based rape and child abuse systems that have been constructed within society and continue to perpetuate themselves, it should be noted that the pregnant child is often kept within a state of fear in order to remain silent, regarding the father. I have personally witnessed parental disputes, in which the parents disregarded the abuser of the child and they become complicit in continuing their association. It has reached a point, in which females are handed over to a male above 6’2ft (most predators are often of that height) at the age of 13 to 14. These females are impregnated repeatedly before reaching the age of 16, by which point all future potential has been lost. Once the female has outlived her purpose, she is replaced for another 13 to 14 year old. And the pattern is repeated. This occurs across the United Kingdom. It has become widespread and mainlined paedophilia. The chav, in essence, requires status and comfort in order to survive within modern society. Any rejection undoubtedly leads to violence.

In consequence, these individuals are also accustomed to obtaining female, which are classically termed as cum-buckets through constant intoxication. The weapons that these men use are far reaching. Disorientation, which can be done through music and turning up the temperature within the premises in order to elevate the heart rate. Psychological side-effects of the base drumming within music has often been utilized during times of war as well as the attainment of a trance state. Additionally, the stripping of clothes represents the stripping of defence layers in the female. Both physically and psychologically. Distortion of judgement: This has already partially been achieved by the loud music, disrupting the thought processes. Classically used in soldiers during times of combat. African tribes used to surround their targets and bang the drums for over 24 hours, after which they had their troops move in according to the drum beat. As the drum beat speeds, whilst the troops are approaching. Same effect occurs in women within these tiny flats that are turned into saunas. This is where alcohol is included into the equation. Chavs not having a lot of money will use very cheap, very chemical alcohol, designed to accelerate the heart beat and cause head rush. More often than not a little bit of cocaine is added to the mix and let the sex commence, regardless of the age of the female participant.

Yet, in order to maintain ones reputation and shine like a new penny, whilst committing acts that are far from a heroic image, one requires an easy target that is already unpopular and possesses very little defence capabilities to take the blame. These scapegoats are often 5’7ft. It has become evident that a short stature in men can be difficult in the dating world, yet during childhood this often results in regular persecution. This is often continued until after the individual leaves school. However, regular bullying implies that there are specific perpetrators that are more often than not above 6ft, especially when the victim is of above average intelligence. The final and first resort of the perpetrators is more often than not violence. Aggression is provoked at the slightest hint of rejection or objection. Even when accusing the individual of performing the actions that they themselves committed, such as child abuse. It has become common practice and these individuals often victimize their childhood targets long after leaving school, even if that means going out of their way to do so or targeting an individual exactly like them. This type of chav feed off media propaganda and utilize it as a manner of controlling others, such as the celebrity media, Hollyoaks East Enders, Coronation Street and so forth. It should be noted that they surround themselves in air of overconfidence. These individuals will often walk around and behave as if the world owes them something and they are there to take it at every opportunity with a shit eating grin on their face and no thanks whatsoever. These individual do not participate in fair fights. On average, it is 6 or more (above 6th) on one individual that is below 6ft. The same perpetrators are the same groups that engage in date rape. As in their own words, “They ain’t sinking money into no sex.” Yet, they do not commit these crimes on their own turf, they raid other gangs club territory, as it is considered. Numerous towns along rail-lines from London to Thanet, London to Brighton, and London to Norwich are often used as a date-rape and acquaintance zones. A room is rented out, then these individuals spot their targets, drug them and return with them to their rooms, leaving them to wake up the next morning within the establishment. In the same manner that CEO’s and the likes travel to foreign countries and other locations of immunity to perform their dark deeds. This can be found within all aspects of society, such as the corporate, industrial, political and religious world. In conclusion, adequate education of children and a true view of society without emotional bias would eliminate this phenomenon almost overnight. The social construct known as heightism would cease to exist with an objective viewpoint of society, whilst removing the social predators and freeing up the space for mental growth within society, enabling it to move forward, beyond the shadow of social corruption.
