Good Morning to all of you.
For my loyal readers, I know you remember me frequently talking about the “glare, stare, gaze” of the N.
Especially during times of “Devalue and Discard.”
I had a comment yesterday from and individual who mentioned that the “reptilian gaze” is a phrase coined by a Canadian doctor named Robert Hare. If you click on the link below, it will (hopefully) connect you to a research article where his term is mentioned by another author. The article is fascinating and creepy at the same time.
Here’s an example:
One psychopath interviewed by Hare’s team said quite frankly: “The first thing I do is I size you up. I look for an angle, an edge, figure out what you need and give it to you. Then it’s pay-back time, with interest. I tighten the screws.” Another psychopath admitted that he never targeted attractive women – he was only interested in those who were insecure and lonely. He claimed he could smell a needy person “the way a pig smells truffles.”
(My apologies to Anthony Perkins for using his publicity photo.)
