Re: P trait and empathy
P trait evolved in order to civilize and solidify bonds between people. I see it all the time with my sister. She's a classic NPA. I nicked a very expensive car. The cost of repair given by the body shop was over 10,000...it was politely explained to me that my insurance company covers it. I called the body shop guy up threatening that I was going to have them investigated for Fraud if they didn't deflate the costs. He started telling me how insurance covers it. He had this whole schpiel about they were all necessary repairs. Told him I was going to put a dent in his reputation much bigger than the dent in the car. The owner called up my sister to tell her how pissed off he was about what I said. Then my sister called to try and explain to me how "you can't piss people off. This is a good friend of mine." "The insurance will take care of all this. That's what you pay them for." I called the body shop up three days later, "Hey did you come down on costs?" "I can't blah". "My friend, the investigation will be like nothing you've ever before seen or been subjected to." My sister was livid. Now if they refuse again in a week, I"ll file a lawsuit against them, and then see if that'll buckle them into submission.
society is becoming more P-traitish since years ago. now even renting an apartment has all this garbage about filling out applications and paying application fees. I said to the agent, after she showed the place and said "its just a 100 dollar application fee" . There was a couple there to being shown the place. I said "how do you determine who gets it?" "First come, first serve." I fired back, "How many other people have applied already?" She took a step back in dismay unconsciously to where her body was pinned against the wall like ready to be burnt at the stake and then gave me some made up answer, to which I could see they make more money a week selling applications to rent a place than actually renting it. Never applied and I was right, they're still running the same ad as three months ago. Back in the day, you just rented an apartment, none of this application business.
