Hey! I’m 18 and in college. I hope to become a neuroscientist who figures out the science behind the human mind. Don’t take my paranormal/creepy section seriously, but take my science and world section seriously! I hope you enjoy and most importantly learn something. Thank you for your love and support. Tag sixpenceee in a post for my attention! Arrows (navigation) are at the top in that white box. My instagram is @sixpenceee

From a purely factual & scientific perspective
Psychpathy is a personality disorder. It doesn’t appear as a formal diagnosis in the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) but it is closely associated with antisocial personality disorder or dissocial personality disorder. Here are some of the characteristics. 
superficial charm
grandiose sense of self-worth
pathological lying
cunning/manipulative
lack of remorse
emotional shallowness, 
lack of empathy
SOURCE
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SOCIOPATH AND PSYCHOPATH
Sociopaths and psychopaths have many characteristics in common but one key difference is that sociopaths may form emotional bonds between people, while psychopaths are unable to. It’s is believed that psychopathy is the result of genetics and faulty wiring in the brain while for sociopaths it is a result of a traumatic childhood and their environment. 
FAULTY BRAIN WIRING
Research from Georgetown University hints that the brain of a psychopath has a smaller and thinner amygdala, the part of the brain that recognizes fear. This may explain why they aren’t afraid and can’t exhibit fear. 
Research from Vanderbilt University has shown psychopaths tend to generate a lot more dopamine. In addition Dr. Kent Kiehl  of the University of New Mexico believes in may be a disorder in the paralimbic system of the brain, a system known to be involved in emotion, inhibition and emotional control.
There isn’t much research funding behind this. 
SOURCE & SOURCE
THE POPULAR STIGMA
While yes, many psychopaths have killed, murdered and raped, it’s definitly possible for someone with this disorder to lead a completely normal life and even be successful.
Take neuroscientist James Fallon, for example who discovered he had a similar brains scan to that of a psychopath and after going through a series of genetic tests, it was confirmed.
James never hurt anyone, he does admit he can be a little bit of a jerk sometimes such as not letting his grandchildren win at games, but he is far from dangerous. 
He believes it’s because of his environment, he has a loving home. His parents loved, protected and gave him a lot of attention.

A glitch in the matrix is an experience that proves something isn’t right in the world or sometimes your brain. 

Here are some creepy experiences that are supposedly true as reported by these users. 

  • DEAD BUT NOT DEAD

by reddit user 3clipse

I knew my uncle had died.

My mom had called me and told me the news. It was very sad. She told me in the middle of work and I told one of my coworkers. He expressed his condolences on my loss.

A couple weeks later, my sister mentioned my aunt and uncle doing something. I said “but…he’s dead.” And my sister said no, he wasn’t.

I called my mom. No, he wasn’t dead.

To this day I’m still not sure how much of it my brain imagined and how much was real. Did I really talk to my coworker? Was I even on the phone with my mom at all that day?

It still freaks me out knowing that my mind could fabricate so complete and real a memory like that.

  • WHY DID WE TALK LIKE THAT

by reddit user WittyRepost

Several years ago I woke up in bed next to my (now ex) girlfriend and we had a conversation in fluent French. I got up and got in the shower, and as the water started running I realized, neither of us spoke French. When I got out I asked her about it. She remembered it happening but was as confused as I was. I can’t even remember what we talked about because I don’t fucking speak French. Brains are weird.

  • FORGOTTEN 

by reddit user Joevual

My dad has epilepsy and says that he’ll experience this when he doesn’t take his meds. Sort of like a fugue state. He went to Aspen on a business trip to design a ski lodge and he forgot his meds at home. He was supposed to do a big presentation but he never showed up. His coworkers looked for him for hours until they finally found him walking down the highway in the snow, 8 miles from their hotel. Apparently he had completely forgot who he was, where he was, and why he was there. He figured if he just started walking he could piece things together and figure things out. He snapped out of it when he saw the familiar faces of his coworkers.

  • A DIFFERENT PATH

by reddit user A_lot_of_italics

One day I was walking to work and all of a sudden had an urge to walk a different path than usual. I work downtown in a big city. It was a strange spur of the moment urge to walk a different way that changed my life forever.

I turned into an alley I had never seen before. As I remember it, I made it about fifteen feet or so when an actual “glitch” happened. Everything in my mind scrambled. I felt like I didn’t have a body anymore, just that I was a semi-conscious entity floating through some weird dimension. All of a sudden in the array of different colors and shapes a vision came to me. It was a bunch of strange looking people that in my mind resembled businessmen in suits. They looked startled and panicked that I could see them. One of the “people” made a quick movement and everything turned to black.

When I regained normality, I was on a completely different street. It was the same street that I always use to walk to work. I felt sick, and severely disturbed/depressed.

I’ve never done any hard drugs, never experienced any hallucinations, never have had anything like this happen to me. The weird thing is, when the glitch was correcting itself and I could see those “people” watching me like a caged animal I had the feeling that I knew I was being controlled. It still bothers me very much to this day.

  • A SHARP BEND

by reddit user pistacchio

When I was like 10 or 11 I was going to the beach with my aunt and her friends. There were two cars of us. To get there we had to go through a very large industrial area. We didn’t know the direction, so our car was following the other. Suddenly, they did an unexpected turn and so our driver had to take a sharp bend.

In that moment we heard a very clear, loud voice inside the car saying laughing “Sharp bend, hm?!”. The driver immediately hit the brakes. We looked at each other, puzzled: we all recognized it as a voice not belonging to any of us.

In the very same time, we noticed that the other car has stopped as well. The other driver got out of the car with a scared face and shouted to us: “Did… did you hear that as well?”.

They heard the very same thing inside their car. The area around was full deserted.

  • THE SUICIDE DREAM

by reddit user 47attemptslater

When I was a teenager I had two really intense dreams one night. The first one was about an online friend of mine calling me to say she’d broken up with her boyfriend, and I sang a few lines of Seal’s “Don’t Cry” to her over the phone. The second dream was finding a (real life) friend dead body floating in her bathtub.

I didn’t think anything of it up until I logged online that evening and the online friend came online to tell me her boyfriend broke up with her. I immediately asked if I could call her, and she said no. I remember thinking that it meant something, like I could change it. Not long after, my phone rang, and it was Real Life friend from the dream calling me. I was completely freaked at this point, but talked to her normally… she was just talking about school and shit… up until I realized I heard a splash in the background. I asked her, “Are you in the tub?” and when she said yes I felt like my heart had stopped. I asked her, “What did you do?”. She didn’t answer me right away, and then after a very long pause she told me she’d taken an entire bottle of pills and chased it with mushrooms and vodka. She’d gotten scared waiting for it to hit her… so she called me so she’d hear someone’s voice. I hung up and called 911. By the time they got there she was unconscious, but alive. Today she’s a mom to a beautiful little girl, and she’s ok.

  • NO BRUISES OR SCRATCHES

by reddit user mbalsevich

Was monkeying on the hand rails of a balcony on the 4th floor of my building and fell off, as 2 of my buddies watched in horror.

I remember seeing the concrete floor approaching as I fell head first and thinking “oh fuck - I’m going to break my wrist” (Why my wrist? dunno)

Next recollection is seeing my buddies yelling, from up there, “Are you OK!? ARE YOU OK!?”.

I look up, I say: “What happened?”.

They did not see my actually hit the floor, they just ran outside and saw me already standing looking up.

Not a scratch, not a bruise, nothing hurted. I don’t remember hitting the floor, standing up, nothing. No memories exist for those 1 or 2 seconds.

None of us 3 ever understood what happened. But we all saw it and agree on what happened.

  • MY EYES ARE BURNING

by reddit user ClassicJenny

About 15 years ago my friends parents, Steve and Julie, were woken up at 1am to a very loud THUD that rattled the house. Worried that one of the kids had fallen out of the bunk bed Steve went downstairs to check on them but all three kids were sound asleep and safe in their beds. Julie told Steve to check the house in case of intruders so Steve checked the doors and windows before going outside to take a look.

After ten minutes of investigating the noise Steve came across nothing unusual and went back inside to go to bed. He found his wife absolutely worried sick and she demanded to know where the hell he had gone and what happened. Confused and tired Steve told her he found nothing and tried to calm her down before Julie pointed out that it was now 4am and that he had been missing for 3 hours. Julie had even gone outside to check on him and he was nowhere to be found and didn’t respond to her calling his name. Unable to figure out what happened they returned to bed and slept until Steve had to get up for work in a few hours.

Steve owns a painting business and a couple hours after working on a house he noticed his eyes started to feel itchy, then his eyes started to burn, then after a couple hours his eyes burned so badly that he was holding his eyelids open as to not blink because it felt like his lids were sandpaper against his eyes. His employees rushed him to the hospital and Steve was treated for second degree flash burns on his eyes. He was told his burns were equivalent to staring at a welders torch without eye protection for an extended period of time. His eyes were treated and he was lucky to have his vision fully restored.

So do any of you have experiences like this? A glitch in the system experience?

Make a post and tag “sixpenceee”! I would love to read them and will be reblogging the ones that really make me go “woah”

I love this stuff

1) Lol I asked you to respond to this privately so we can talk it out like reasonable people but instead you published this on your blog

2) Why are you condemning me for posting something similar to what your friend posted? Has it ever occurred to you that I don’t follow your friend, I don’t know who they are nor have I seen the post on my dashboard? 

3) Yes, why not I go through the 100’s of pages of all the crime/science/horror/creepy blogs on the internet everytime I decide to post something just to see if it has been posted already. 

4) If you are referring to how I my followers “ran eeriie” of this site. Then you should know that me and eeriie have never spoken before, I have never mentioned her name once on my blog. You automatically assumed we had an argument but we didn’t.

5) Do you really think my followers ran her out of this site on purpose? Or do you think it was one person constantly sending her hate and mentioning my name just to start some petty drama. 

6) Never the less I apologized, privately messaged eeriie and hoped for the best. 

7) To be honest, I was hoping to reach a compromise with you. People have directed me to your blog, and told me how you have mentioned my name. I saw your post a month ago. I saw how you called me “boring” among other accusations but I ignored because it was stupid.

8) But you’re still talking about this. You say you’re 30 years old and you’re too old for drama, but you literally posted this screenshot claiming how I “stole posts” just yesterday. Why are you still on this topic? Why are you picking on someone 12 years younger than you? What did I ever do to you? 

9) I’m not perfect. I have flaws as anyone else, but if your going to accuse me of something I don’t do multiple times then don’t get mad at me for when I stand up for myself. 

And this is why I love Sixpenceee so much. God, she is so much more mature than that 30 year old lady.

Ok honestly, you deal with your hate in the best way possible. This was well written, very kind when you had all rights to be angry & bitter, and everyone can tell this tumblr user is being downright ridiculous and childish. 

Also cudos to you for explicitly saying “don’t send this person hate” in your other post. You are mature, intelligent and thoughtful, and it’s no wonder everyone really admires you.

What do you think of Dissociative Identity Disorder re: the physical differentiations between alters? Like, one alter might have allergies that the other alters don't, or glasses prescriptions that change depending on which alter is present. I've seen some accounts where one alter had some kind of heart condition that needed medication, but the other personalities didn't.

A lot of researchers don’t take it seriously. I read an entire book dedicated on how most scientists dismiss it. 

There is virtually no funding towards it. 

I’ve read cases where one personality will need glasses but the other doesn’t, or how one personality will be allergic to peanuts and will literally break out into red bumps if given peanuts while the other personality could eat a whole bucket of peanuts and nothing will happen to them.

I wish it was taken seriously! 

UNETHICAL EXPERIMENTS: SHOCKS FOR PICTURES
In 1862, French neurologist Guillaume Duchenne wanted to test the popular theory (at the time) that the face was directly linked to the soul.
He had already done some work applying electric shocks to patients’ damaged muscles and he reasoned that if he could apply electric currents to a subject’s face he could stimulate the muscles and photograph the results.
One problem was that while it was easy to activate responses with electric shocks, it passed too quickly for the camera to record. 
One of the patients at the hospital where Duchenne worked was a shoemaker who suffered from facial paralysis, which meant he would hold facial expressions longer- long enough to photograph. 
The above picture is one of the pictures. 

Duchenne subjected the shoemaker to over 100 sessions. While it was clearly unethical and pretty painful, Duchenne figured out the muscles required for a genuine smile.

Apparently we live in a world where only one person is allowed to post one thing true that they found on the net ever and anyone else who makes a similar post about the same thing is stealing. I didnt know you could steal real life crime articles.

This just in: BBC sues CNN for reporting about the events in the middle east. According to BBC, they reported it first and CNN has no right to report on events if another news station already did it. 

Wow damn CNN you should’ve searched through all the channels before reporting on Israel & Gaza. 

SHAME ON YOU!

This was posted by thedeathmerchant as evidence that I “steal posts”

Now I really don’t see the problem here. Me and dichotomized have talked it over privately, and we both realize that sometimes things will overlap between bloggers who post the same theme at times, but that’s nothing to get infuriated about. 

We talked it over like mature adults. 

Both posts were posted at different times. It’s impossible for one person to continuously check all over tumblr to see if a topic has been posted or not.

No one really owns a concept or event you know? 

I really don’t want any of my followers to send hate to anyone, regarding this issue. But I do want people to recognize that it isn’t something to hold grudges over. 

Peace out

Hey Sixpenceee, thank you so much for reblogging Monty's story, $60 has already been donated for his surgery and I've gotten many messages sending love and support to me and my friend's family. I am feeling overwhelmed with hope and joy, I cannot thank you enough for being so kind. Seriously, thank you so, so much. You are so thoughtful and wonderful, dear.

YAY! I’m glad to help!
