24. The psychopath as scientist

Limitations of space allow only a few highlights to be thrown on this man’s

interesting career. Though still in the late twenties, he was already a doctor of

philosophy, and the co-author of several creditable papers on subjects in the general

field of physics.

Although delayed by truancy and alcoholic escapades for a year in obtaining his

degree, he always showed noteworthy ability in a technical sense so long as he applied

himself. Now and then he was disabled for several days or a week, during which times

he drank enough to remain semiconscious or climbed into trees, from which he hurled

noisy defiance at his friends and later at policemen who attempted to get him down. He

drank chiefly alone and sometimes urinated in bureau drawers, his own or his

roommate's shoes, and indulged in other pranks of the same caliber.

Having obtained his degree, he had little difficulty in securing a satisfactory post

on the faculty of a state university. He did not, however, enter upon these duties.

Having taken up residence with an aunt in the university town several weeks before the

beginning of classes, he at once proceeded to drink on weekends and to haunt public

houses of unsavory reputation.

One night a few days before the formal beginning of the academic year, he made

himself particularly disagreeable to his companions, who consisted of two prostitutes

and a local derelict. In a mood of great irritability and arrogance he quit this group and

joined another woman of the streets with whom he had frequently consorted but in

whom he had never shown any special interest. During the next hour he drank little but

spent his energy ridiculing and slandering his acquaintances in town, the faculty of the

university, and particularly his aunt, who was his only local relative. At about 3 o'clock

in the morning he astonished all present by announcing in imperious tones that he and

his present companion would straightway join themselves in holy matrimony. Before

leaving with such company as he could gather, he took pains to telephone his aunt and

insist peremptorily that she attend the nuptials.

One may be left to imagine the consternation and confusion of the elderly and

very circumspect lady as she sought first to understand and then to counsel her nephew.

On arriving at the residence of a justice of the peace, the aunt and friends whom

she had brought left nothing undone in efforts to dissuade our subject from proceeding.

In desperation they pointed out not only

204 THE MASK OF SANITY

the defects of character so plain in the prospective bride but also her considerable age,

her poorly made false teeth, and her unprepossessingly dyed hair. With oaths,

obscenity, and a very artificial show of gaiety, these objections were waved aside, and

the bridegroom fulfilled his aims.

The next day he condescendingly allowed his aunt to begin efforts to annul the

marriage, but, while expressing his approval, he took very little active part. When

earnestly questioned about his motivation, he casualty averred that the whole affair was

meant as a joke.

"But on whom is this joke?' an elderly friend of the family asked with some

asperity.

"Why on me, I suppose," confessed the disinterested bridegroom laughing with

what appeared to be a calmness and lack of concern almost incredible under the

circumstances. He never showed any signs of serious worry or of shame, although he

glibly confessed to being in the wrong. The affair became widely known, and

authorities in the university succeeded in obtaining their new instructor's resignation

before he actually took up his duties.

He promptly abandoned the woman he had married, and his family made some

settlement with her. After a financially successful year as an automobile salesman, in

which he got into trouble somewhat less frequently than usual, he decided to return to

the academic world.

He obtained several other good positions in universities where his work was fitful

but promising. His personal life soon became so spectacularly designed to embarrass

the institution that he had to be dropped. One of these positions he lost, after several

minor efforts of the same sort, by the following bit of conduct:

After becoming drunk and conspicuously turbulent in his quarters, where efforts

were being made to nurse him and to cajole him back to an appearance of what might

be called sanity, he disappeared and could not be located for several days.

The authorities at the college remained in a state of considerable anxiety about his

fate. This was terminated by a telephone call made by a local veterinarian to the

professor in whose department he worked. The latter, a person of authentic and

altogether unstudied dignity and a scholar of national importance, was probably the last

man on earth whom a normal youth would desire to rouse out of bed at midnight and

treat to a display of absurdity. Humor of no lesser order than his dignity characterized

him. Though peaceful, unaggressive, and tolerant as a man can be, some deep

subjective poise enabled him when prodded sufficiently to utter a quiet and ironic

rebuke fit to unfrock a bishop.

The veterinarian informed this considerable personage that his missing

THE MATERIAL 205

research fellow was at present in the dog hospital and had insisted that this news be

delivered to no other than himself, and at once. The bland, laconic lines of the

professor's face subtly hardened. Pausing as he reached for his socks, he swore

inaudibly.

On arriving at the dog hospital, he found his younger colleague sprawled in a

large cage or cubicle used to house ailing Great Danes or St. Bernards. He at once

yelled to the professor, announcing in glee that prophecies by the latter about his going

to the dogs were now amply fulfilled-so what of it! His clamorous outcries rose above

the din of barking dogs, who, aroused by the presence of so unusual a kennel-mate, gave

voice vigorously and in unison.

The veterinarian explained that his new patient had come in some urgency and

insisted on going to where the convalescent dogs were kept. Somewhat bewildered, but

thinking perhaps that his visitor had good reason to inquire into the condition of some

canine acquaintance, he promptly brought him to the kennels. The strange young man

at once climbed into his present berth, defied the veterinarian to remove him, sang,

shouted, cursed, and finally insisted that his superior be called.

Finally agreeing to come out, he remained generally obstreperous and at once

began to blame a grave and gentle older colleague for his plight. The latter, who had

been sincerely interested in trying to keep this promising young man from destroying

himself, had, he said, set him off on the present spree by offering him a bottle of beer at

lunch several days previously.

Despite many apparently self-imposed and purposeless obstacles in his career he

continues to obtain positions, sometimes keeping them as long as a year. His family is

called upon to see him through difficulties when they arise, and he continues to speak of

those who assist him as if he considered them in a large measure responsible for his

troubles.

  • Psychopath Hervey Cleckley THE MASK OF SANITY, Section 2: The Material , Part 2: Incomplete manifestations or suggestions of the disorder, 20. Degrees of disguise in essential pathology
    Psychopath Hervey Cleckley THE MASK OF SANITY, Section 2: The Material , Part 2: Incomplete manifestations or suggestions of the disorder, 20. Degrees of disguise in essential pathology, The cases already reported are only a few among many hundreds whom I have observed. All of these people, when their records over the years are considered, strike one as remarkably similar. If the story of each could be told in detail, it is believed that the similarity would become more plain to any reader. It is the contention of the present argument that this personality disorder shapes and hardens into the outlines of a very definite clinical entity or reaction type, into a pattern of disorder quite as recognizable and as real as any listed in psychiatric nomenclature at energyenhancement.org

  • Psychopath Hervey Cleckley THE MASK OF SANITY, Section 2: The Material , Part 2: Incomplete manifestations or suggestions of the disorder, 21. The psychopath as businessman
    Psychopath Hervey Cleckley THE MASK OF SANITY, Section 2: The Material , Part 2: Incomplete manifestations or suggestions of the disorder, 21. The psychopath as businessman, No attempt will be made to give a detailed history of this man. Suffice it to say that the incidents mentioned are not isolated experiences in the general life pattern but rather expressions of a motif which persistently recurs to interrupt the outward serenity. He is now 50 years of age, and he has gone on to achieve considerable business success, being an equal partner in a wholesale grocery concern. As a businessman there is much to be said for him. Except for his periodic sprees, he works industriously at energyenhancement.org

  • Psychopath Hervey Cleckley THE MASK OF SANITY, Section 2: The Material , Part 2: Incomplete manifestations or suggestions of the disorder, 22. The psychopath as man of the world
    Psychopath Hervey Cleckley THE MASK OF SANITY, Section 2: The Material , Part 2: Incomplete manifestations or suggestions of the disorder, 22. The psychopath as man of the world, The psychopath as man of the world comes from excellent stock and his educational background includes four years at a celebrated preparatory school and three at a well-known university. During his student days he took no interest whatsoever in any of his studies. His shrewdness, his skill at utilizing the work of his friends, from whose papers he usually patched together his own themes and essays, and his reliance on cheating in examinations enabled him to stay in the University through his junior year. His real interests during this period consisted in decking himself with fine clothes in which to saunter about, in presiding at social gatherings, and in flimsy but pretentious lovemaking with a large number of prominent young ladies. In the eyes of these and of their mothers he passed as a dashing beau, almost as an arbiter elegantiarum at energyenhancement.org

    Psychopath Hervey Cleckley THE MASK OF SANITY, Section 2: The Material , Part 2: Incomplete manifestations or suggestions of the disorder, 23. The psychopath as gentleman, This man, whom for convenience we may call W. R. L., first came to my attention professionally when seen strapped down during hydrotherapy in a continuous tub. There, surrounded by dozens of the most complete madmen an imaginative layman could conceive, he strained, cursed, bellowed, and hurled defiant imprecations at all about him at energyenhancement.org

    Psychopath Hervey Cleckley THE MASK OF SANITY, Section 2: The Material , Part 2: Incomplete manifestations or suggestions of the disorder, 24. The psychopath as scientist, Limitations of space allow only a few highlights to be thrown on this mans interesting career. Though still in the late twenties, he was already a doctor of philosophy, and the co-author of several creditable papers on subjects in the general field of physics at energyenhancement.org

    Psychopath Hervey Cleckley THE MASK OF SANITY, Section 2: The Material , Part 2: Incomplete manifestations or suggestions of the disorder, 25. The psychopath as physician, When first seen by me, he was still in his early forties. From the country town in which he was practicing medicine an inquiry came concerning his professional ability. Everyone regarded him as a brilliant man. His patients loved him, and while he was working regularly, his collections were more than adequate. It was often impossible to find him, for now and then, in the classic manner, he lay out in third-rate hotel rooms or in the fields semiconscious until he could be found and coaxed back home at energyenhancement.org

  • Psychopath Hervey Cleckley THE MASK OF SANITY, Section 2: The Material , Part 2: Incomplete manifestations or suggestions of the disorder, 26. The psychopath as psychiatrist
    Psychopath Hervey Cleckley THE MASK OF SANITY, Section 2: The Material , Part 2: Incomplete manifestations or suggestions of the disorder, 26. The psychopath as psychiatrist, In the group who show some fundamental characteristics of the typical psychopath but who make a good or fair superficial adjustment in society are sometimes found men who hold responsible positions. Lawyers, business executives, physicians, and engineers who show highly suggestive features of the disorder have been personally observed. Perhaps one would think that the psychiatrist, with good opportunity to observe the psychopath, would eschew all his ways. I believe, however, that a glimpse can be given of characteristics of the psychopath in such a person at energyenhancement.org
