In this episode I attempt once again to plumb the shallows of Donald Trump’s mind.
I was spurred by an article in The Atlantic magazine about children who have been diagnosed with “callous and unempathetic traits.” In many ways Trump fits the profile of these children, who to a surprising degree do not respond to disapproval or punishments, but do respond to praise and rewards. They also exhibit unique brain features. The article reports on new treatments that are helping these kids grow into better adults.
Unfortunately, at age 71 Trump may be a lost cause. In the last part of the podcast I look at some of the ramifications of his psychological profile, specifically as it relates to North Korea.
