An Oxford University researcher, psychologist Kevin Dutton, has claimed that Donald Trump has more – yes, more – psychopathic traits than Adolf Hitler. That headline got around the world, but Hillary Clinton ranked as a psychopath between Napoleon and Emperor Nero! See: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-3753399/Donald-Trump-psychopathic-traits-Adolf-Hitler-Hillary-Clinton-shows-machiavellian-egocentricity-Scientists-conclude-presidential-candidates-psychopaths-claim-good-thing.html.
The “research” involved completing a psychometric tool known as the Psychopathic Personality Inventory-Revised (PPI-R), and examines eight component traits: social influence, fearlessness, stress immunity, Machiavellian egocentricity, rebellious nonconformity, blame externalisation and carefree nonplanfulness. Trump scored 171 and Hillary Clinton 152.
Now while that all may seem bad, I noticed that the same test applied to Jesus gave him 157!
Saint Paul, that great man, scored 157. Both men ranked higher than Emperor Nero!
Of course, this is the reductio ad absurdum of the whole thing because any influential fearless person is likely to score high, indicating that the test is basically flawed.
Oh, the subjects didn’t do the tests, the tests are just “guesses” about them. Not science in my opinion.
