Toxic YouTube Vlogger Logan Paul body language shows insincerity in apology

Screen Shot 2018-01-06 at 2.01.22 AMLogan Paul is a YouTube  celebrity for his who showed his true vapid character when he went into  Japan’s “suicide forest,”  and discovered a lifeless body hanging from a tree. Apparently a man had committed suicide.  Logan and his crew continued to film this horrible situation, which was bad enough. But what was worse was Logan Paul’s reaction to the tragedy.

He mugged for the camera, had over the top expressions, giggled, laughed and treated this very serious situation as a complete joke. It was appalling to watch. The insensitivity of Paul is what even his loyal fans have reacted negatively towards.

Only becuase of the backlash, he took the film down. he also made a video where he apologized. But his body language showed it was insincere.  It too, was phony in terms of emotion as he repeatedly mentioned that he apologized to his sponsors.

He was NOT sorry at all based on his body language and facial language.  He was sorry that the public reacted so vehemently towards him.

 

He begins  his apology as he pretends to chokes back tears, his speech stilted and stifled.  When he says in his apology video “The reactions you saw in the video were raw and unfiltered,”   that said it all. If that was a raw and unfiltered reaction it showed his inhumanity and obnoxiousness as a human being.

His next statement, “We didn’t know how to react” is also damaging to hin. No one “knows” how to react. But one does know that when there is a tragedy you don’t laugh and make a joke out of it and make light of the loss of someone’s life.  

When he says” from the bottom of my heart, I’m sorry,” there is nothing further from the truth. he is not sorry for what he did. he is sorry that the public turned on him and rejected him for being so insensitive and callous.

Logan looks away from the camera and there’s no emotion in his voice. He says his reactions are raw and unfiltered, but it’s really ‘raw and unfiltered’ of someone who has no class or dignity. Any human being would not make a joke or make fun out of this. He should have shown decency and compassion for a dead human being.”

Logan continues, barely speaks above a whisper as he sayd. “I want to apologize to the internet, I want to apologize to anyone who’s seen the video,” he says. “I want to apologize to anyone who’s been affected or touched by mental illness, or depression, or suicide. But, most importantly, I want to apologize to the victim and his family.  This is obviously something perhaps his handlers or legal team told him to say as it did NOT sound sincere at all. 

Throughout his apology he appologized to his sponsors several times which made it obvious as to why he made the apology in the first place. It was to appease his sponsors so they wouldn’t cut him off financially. It was sickening to watch him pander to them.

 He id not come across sincere. And, that is  what people are reacting to. He has no respect for somebody who’s passed away and it’s such a horrible thing. The body language is not good. He’s insincere. You cannot fool the public. They feel it. He comes across cocky, obnoxious and disrespectful. This is so serious. Someone’s life is over and he’s acting like this is a joke.
 Logan ends his video with this: “The goal of my content is always to entertain. To push the boundaries, to be all-inclusive. In the world I live in, where I share everything I do, the intent is never to be heartless or cruel, or malicious. But his intent is to be heartless because that is who he is as she showed his true colors under the circumstances. Circumstances are what show your  true character. And she showed extremely low character.
He said that ” I don’t expect to be forgiven. I’m just here to apologize. I’m ashamed of myself. I’m disappointed in myself. And I promise to be better. I will be better. Thank you.” The tone in which he said these words were also insincere sounding. He is not ashamed of himself. He is just ashamed and disappointed the public didn’t like what he did.
Through making this statement, Logan is  trying to save face so that his highly popular and successful YouTube channel doesn’t get shut down. This is not a lapse in judgement, it shows his character, the lack of humanity and lack of sensitivity.
When he says he doesn’t expect to be forgiven it’s because he knows his sponsors and investors are about to dump him. There are no feelings in his apology. He looks like a scared deer in the headlights because he knows his career could be over. No matter how you look at it he was making fun of a man who was in such turmoil and had such pain that he ended his life.
Paul was making light of suicide and disrespected the victim found in the forest.  who I think he should be kicked off YouTube entirely as people get kicked off for lesser offenses.

Will Casey Anthony Commit Suicide As A Final Act of Control If She Gets Death Penalty?

 

In examining  Casey Anthony’s behavior, her body language and communication patterns throughout the years, it is my view that there  appear to be are signals of sociopathy or psychopathy based on the characteristics presented in psychologist Robert Hare’s Hare Scale of Psychopathy.” As you recall  Casey Anthony’s behavioryou may see that she appears to share many  traits listed below:

Factor 1

Aggressive narcissism

  1. Glibness/superficial charm
  2. Grandiose sense of self-worth
  3. Pathological lying
  4. Cunning/manipulative
  5. Lack of remorse or guilt
  6. Emotionally shallow
  7. Callous/lack of empathy
  8. Failure to accept responsibility for own actions

Factor 2

Socially deviant lifestyle

  1. Need for stimulation/proneness to boredom
  2. Parasitic lifestyle
  3. Poor behavioral control
  4. Promiscuous sexual behavior
  5. Lack of realistic, long-term goals
  6. Impulsiveness
  7. Irresponsibility
  8. Juvenile delinquency
  9. Early behavioral problems
  10. Revocation of conditional release

Traits not correlated with either factor

  1. Many short-term marital relationships
  2. Criminal versatility

  When a sociopath or psychopath feels that there is no way out and  they can no longer manipulate they often become severely depressed. Because of that  it is not uncommon for them to commit suicide. Remember this is what occurred happened with Philip Markoff  the medical student who killed a woman who’s add he answered on Craigslist.  Markoff  knew there was no way out of his situation. He knew that he could never finish medical school, or become a doctor, or marry his clueless fiancé and live an upscale life. He also knew that he could no longer live his other life where he abused and tortured and killed women. He was locked away in a cell in  a Boston  jail with no visitors and no support system. He knew that things would never get better and that he could never talk his way out of this one .So as his final act of desperation and control he found a way to systematically kill himself in his jail cell and as a final act of control. He  even wrote messages in his own blood on his cell wall as a shout out to his former fiancé. This dramatic way out  could easily happen with Casey Anthony  in my view.  

Sociopaths and Psychopaths don’t usually  commit suicide for the  same reasons non- psychopaths or sociopaths would commit suicide. Instead, their reasons for committing suicide is more as a final act of control.

So if Casey is found guilty of the crime of murdering her daughter Caylee and is sentenced to death by the State, she may possibly  attempt suicide and succeed. In doing so, it may serve as her final act of defiance and control.  She may commit suicide as an act of controlling her own death on her own terms.

There are those who believe that Casey is  way too narcissistic, too self absorbed and to  too in love with herself to do harm to herself, let alone  kill herself. I disagree.  If and when she is housed in a prison’s Death Row, Casey will get a rude awakening.  

Right now, she is the  total center of attention and she seems to love it.  She  appears to love showing up in court with her different outfits often unbuttoned to show some cleavage. Then there are her varied  hair styles she apparently likes to show off in the courtroom as well.

 For Casey, the ,most  important thing  appears that she always looks good. That is why you always see her grooming her hair or adjusting her clothing.  She also  gets the pleasure of seeing her “crush” and attorney  Jose Baez and whomever else she fancies at the moment.

She gets enjoyment in  sharing a smile  or a laugh with Jose. Most of all she appears to get some joy out  of seeing her parents agonizing over her in the courtroom, while she purposely ignores them.  She  no doubt knows that Cindy is straining to get Casey to look in her direction, but Casey consistently refuses to do so.  

In addition, she knows that her every move is televised and scrutinized by the press and no doubt loves all that attention .

But if she is found guilty and sentenced to death, all of that external attention will suddenly disappear. If the recent Jose Baez allegations leveled against Jose Baez are true and the  Florida Bar finds that he has done wrong, he may very well lose his license. If that is the case, he will not be able to represent Casey  and will have no cause to ever see her again. This would no doubt add to her depressed state as she sees Jose as her lifeline to the world and has come to depend on him as her savior. Is he is no longer there to save her, despair may very well set in.

Add to that the   hours and hours of complete isolation and  complete boredom in her  cell with little or no human interaction for long periods of time. Since Casey requires a lot attention for her survival, the lack of  stimulation, the lack of visual and auditory stimulation will be devastating for her.

She may not be able to tolerate her the continuous boredom imposed on her as it will be  torture for her. Because of that it is not impossible that she may decide to  take matters into her own hands kill and herself because like Craigslist Killer Philip Markoff,  she may feel she has  absolutely no way out of her miserable existence.

Even though Casey will most likely  appeal her conviction, the wheels of  justice turn very slow. She may not be able to handle the years and years it will take.  In addition, she can forget about the regular  attorney visits to add some human contact to her existence and help with her boredom.

 While she will most likely continue to receive letters from mentally disturbed fans who support her innocence and who may even ask her to marry them,  she may find the written words empty and meaningless as she knows the truth-  that her life as she once knew it is essentially over. This realization  may be too much for this once  party animal to handle so she may take it upon herself to finally end it all.

Craigslist Killer Philip Markoff Finally Commits Suicide in Jail. Body Language Signals of Anti Social Behavior May Have Been Ignored By Ex Fiance Megan McCallister

It comes as no surprise to me that Craigslist Killer medical student Philip Markoff finally did himself in. According to reports he put  plastic bag over his head and smothered himself to death as well as cutting an artery so he would bleed to death.

When he was first arrested and put into custody, there were reports that he constantly picked at himself until he bled. In fact eyewitnesses stated that Markoff “started to pick at his ear” the day his Megan McAlister  fiance at time visited him in jail.

His self mutilating body language spoke volumes. But what about his body language signals when he was dating and engaged to Megan? did they speak volumes as well or did Megan ignore them?

BODY LANGUAGE OF SELF MUTLIATION AS AN EMOTIONAL REACTION TO GETTING CAUGHT

Markoff’s  picking at himself until he bled  was a form of self mutilation. Because he was caught and  finally trapped , it was a body language tell that indicated that he was punishing himself  and displaying his  self  loathe for getting caught.

Markoff was so arrogant and thought he was so brilliant and clever at figuring  out his  brilliant plan to make an easy buck. He answered Craigslist ads placed by those engaged in offering sexual messages or services and robbed them. He was sure they wouldn’t protest or report him. After all, they were doing something illegal as well and didn’t want to get themselves in trouble by reporting illegal acts they were committing.

But when  they protested, he killed them like he did with 26 yer old Julissa Brisman. Police found lots of evidence-panties he collected from  his apartment from his victims along with  plastic handcuffs, and a hollowed out Grey’s Anatomy book containing a gun- his murder weapon.

So when he  was caught, he was bright enough to know that there was absolutely no way out. His self mutilation and self punishment reflects his  anger at himself for not being so brilliant and for getting caught.  This lead to his ultimate self punishment of killing himself.  Because he was devoid of emotion as most psychopaths are, his emotional distress was revealed in his body picking.

He knew what lay ahead of him. So he took the easy way out and saved the state time and money and did the job himself. So now there is one less Toxic Man among us.

BODY LANGUAGE OF SHOCK

One of the significant body language tells that can be observed with Markoff can be seen when he was in the courtroom. He showed absolutely no emotion. His face was stoic and he barely moved .

Emotionally, through his facial expressions and body language , he showed a lack of remorse and a lack of guilt. This is very indicative of those with antisocial personality disorders. There was also no question that he was in shock when first capture , much like another very tall, intelligent  and  handsome fellow who allegedly killed several young women- Joran van der Sloot.

What these two miscreants have in common is that they were so arrogant and full of themselves and thought so highly of their own intelligence that they never thought they would ever get caught. So when they did get caught they were in complete physical  shock. This dramatically showed in their body and facial language.

CHILLING COLDNESS IN BODY LANGUAGE OF MARKOFF

What was most chilling to discover was how security cameras showed Markoff  casually strolling to and from  the three different crime scenes as he used his Blackberry. He showed the same psychopathic casualness that Joran van der Sloot showed in his body language. when he calmly walked out of the hotel room carrying his bags, while he left a mutilated dead woman inside his hotel room.

It seems that their demeanor isn’t the only thing these two had in common.  They both robbed  killed women for money to help support their gambling debts and habits. They had no sympathy or remorse for their victims and were able to continue on in their lives  as though nothing happened.

MARKOFF’S SICK MESSAGE TO EX FIANCE MEGAN MCCALISTER

There is no doubt that Markoff thought about killing himself the whole time he was incarcerated. But he chose to commit the act on  the date of  his would be first wedding anniversary. To me this is clear a shout out to Megan, a beautiful young  and intelligent woman, who also wanted to become a doctor herself, who  had no clue about him or the double life he was leading.

Perhaps his suicide on the date of their failed wedding was a sick and depraved message to   Megan  in order to  one last time create pain and emotional  havoc in someone’s life.

It was clear from her statements to the press and statements, through her attorney, which were  made  after Markoff was arrested,  Megan had no idea who her fiancé was or what he was doing in his spare time- robbing and killing. She wrote in her email to the press:

Unfortunately you were given wrong information as was the public. All I have to say to you is Philip is a beautiful person inside and out and could not hurt a fly! A police officer in Boston (or many) is trying to make big bucks by selling this false story to the TV stations. What else is new?? Philip is an intelligent man who is just trying to live his life so if you could leave us alone we would greatly appreciate it. We expect to marry in August and share a wonderful, mean‘I will stand by Philip as I know he is innocent.

And in a message to a reporter on a social networking site she said the following :
‘Philip is a beautiful man inside and out. ‘He is intelligent, loyal, and the best fiance a woman could ask for. He would not hurt a fly!’

But were her words true? Did she really believe her words? The answer is probably.  Perhaps  he only showed her his good side.  On the other hand, perhaps there were signals all along  but Megan may have been  too blinded by a  planning  a lavish wedding and a future with a bright doctor.  The question is were there signs early on that could have clued Megan in to the fact that her fiancé was living a double life?  The answer is YES!

RED FLAG SIGNALS MEGAN MAY HAVE IGNORED

As any forensic psychiatrist  will tell you, once you decide to burrow  deep beneath the surface you will discover that this aberrant  behavior did not happen over night. They were there when he was a child. The fact that he refused to make eye contact with his parents when they sat in the courtroom also seems to speak volumes. They no doubt knew early on that something was off with their son which they may have chosen to ignore.

Perhaps they felt that now that he was going to get married he would  finally straighten out. But they were wrong. When he told his parent to forget about him after they visited him in jail, it said it all.

There may have  also been symptoms of Philip Markoff’s  psychopathy that were evident that Megan McAllister also  ignored or refused to see.

One of the most telling things in psychopathic behavior is the emotional detachment. You can actually see it in their engagement photo. While he is smiling with Megan, she is the one lovingly nuzzling into him. He on the other hand  has a mask-like  smile and doesn’t embrace her arm. Instead he awkwardly positions the front of his hand against her elbow.  He doesn’t lean into her or embrace her. Granted  this is only one photo.

But when we examine another photo of the two of them in a more casual setting,  we see the same pattern. She is nuzzling  and leaning into him and he is so detached,  he even has one of his hands behind his back as though he has something to hide-  his secret  life. Again you do not see him embracing her or showing signals of affection towards her.

Megan may have rationalized that Philip  wasn’t the affectionate type or didn’t like public displays of affection. But when two people are about to marry, there should be a lot of  mutual displays of affection. But were there other signs?

1, Did he lack sensitivity?

2. Was he cunning and manipulative?

3.  Did he show a lack of remorse or guilt?

4, Did she catch him in lies?

5. Dis she think he was callous and lacked sympathy?

6.  Did she notice that he was full of himself all the time with a grandiose sense of self worth?

7, Dis she notice a glibness and a superficial charm?

8. Did he always seem to blame others and not accept responsibility for his  actions?

9. Did he seem to have a shallow ?

In retrospect, I have no doubt that Megan could answer YES to many or all of these questions.

These are the signs of someone who exhibits psychopathic or sociopathic behavior. In fact I discuss this is greater detail in my new book which will be coming out in November  2010 called TOXIC MEN- 10 Ways to Identify, Deal With and Heal From men Who make Your Life Miserable which you may pre order by clicking here http://www.amazon.com/Toxic-Men-Ways-Identify-Miserable/dp/144050007X

If Megan chose to ignore these red flags, it is understandable. After  all, they met doing something that was selfless and good for the sake of others. They were both hospital volunteers when they were in college. So she saw Markoff  as a good person who does good for others. The fact that he was in medical school and intent on becoming a doctor confirmed to her that he was a good persona nd out to help others.

She thought he guy from a good family, seeing that  his father was a respected dentist.  As a doctor, they had wouldn’t have financial worries.  They were planning a big wedding and she was ready to start her life with him.

So after he was picked up on I 95 while they were in the car together, police  separated them  in two police cars where Philip was taken into custody and Megan was released. It is understandable why she vehemently proclaimed that there must have been some mistake.

But Megan’s story teaches us a great deal. We must be vigilant. We must look for these red flag signals and never ignore them or hope they go away or change. They cannot  change.

We cannot be blinded by what we want to see and not what is actually there or not there. Based on Markoff’s body language towards Megan in the above photos  what was not there was a lot of  open affection. That may have been indicative of his inability to have anything other than a detached emotional interaction with another person. It may have been the first red flag of  psychopathic behavior.   www.drlillianglass.com
