To you many things seem to read like pure gibberish since you completely misunderstood the abstract that you linked to. Otherwise you wouldn't have imagined that it supported your concept of "situational callousness"
. There is nothing situational
What you also don't seem to 'grok' is that psychopaths are very good at pretending
to have "empathy in general but not for their victims,"
who always seem to deserve
being abused by the psychopath, in the psychopath's opinion. That also appears to have been the case with our local sex monster Peter Madsen
, for instance, and in my opinion it's very similar to the kind of glib 'empathy' that Donald Trump exhibits to his followers. It's pretence
only, but some people fall for that, the glib charm of the predator.
