leesestyle Posted September 7, 2009 Share Posted September 7, 2009 i just wanted to take a minute to share my thoughts and get your feedback.... it's long, but if you're bored and care for a read, here we go. if not, i understand. happy labor day!! --------------------------------------------------------------- the problem i've had with gnat all season, which is NOT GAME RELATED, has to do with her cruelty. beyond the cruelty, the apparent level of satisfaction she derives from seeing others suffer. she becomes almost euphoric. she jumps up and down giddily if she can get someone to cry. Someone elses pain is a source of joy for her. IMO, that is not gameplay. that can not be faked. those are true emotions and i think it's mentally disturbing. i can overlook the lying, stealing and cheating in BB house.... it didn't directly hurt anyone and she might somehow see that as indirectly affecting her game. (i don't see how, besides the game lies, but i'll leave that one alone) i just truly believe there is a sensitivity chip missing inside this girl which parallels your basic narcissistic-sociopath. i'm not suggesting she's going to become a serial killer, there are certainly degrees of this illness just as there are degrees to depression or any other psychological disorder, but i read something recently on the subject and there was a graphic with bullet points of the characteristic traits of a person suffering narcissistic-sociopathic tendencies. gnat exhibits every single one of them!! tell me if this looks/sounds familiar... * Glibness/Superficial Charm * Manipulative and Conning * Grandiose Sense of Self * Pathological Lying * Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt * Shallow Emotions * Need for Stimulation * Callousness/Lack of Empathy * Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature * Contemptuous of those who seek to understand them * Does not perceive that anything is wrong with them * Authoritarian, bossy, controlling * Secretive * Paranoid * Has an emotional need to justify their actions and therefore needs their victim's affirmation (respect, gratitude or love) * Ultimate goal is the creation of a willing victim * Incapable of any real or loyal human attachment to another beyond a superficial level * Unable to feel remorse or guilt * Narcissism, grandiosity (self-importance not based on actual achievments) * Disregard for the rights of others --------------------------------------- as a BB fan since season one, i truly do understand that lying is part of the game. as is backstabbing and all that goes with that. there is also a pervasive amount of hypocrisy every season. there's HOH-itis, and a slew of other not-so-savory personality defects that attach themselves to each HG at one time or another. it's to be expected. and gnat has made some STELLAR game moves. no one can take that away from her. some of her lies were pivotal, game altering moves. WELL DONE! i give her props for making huge moves behind the scenes without getting any blood on her hands... morever, without anyone even realizing a move was being MADE! that's pretty astounding, and IMO, a first in BB history. i'm not so blinded by my disgust that i can't realize she's played an awesome game. my ONLY problem with her is the cruelty. my other problem is that some of her die-hard fans seem not to understand why anyone would be bothered by some of her lowest moments giving the usual shout-out, "it's just a game." but truly, is it? are you willing to sell every ounce of decency for half a million? i just feel she could have played the exact same game, and been every bit as successful without being so diabolically cruel. and again, her enjoyment factor of watching those in torment (mich) is something i'll never be able to wrap my brain around. anyway, congrats to gnat. while i still totally despise her as a person, i do believe she's won. she has F2 deals with jordan and kevin and there is a very good chance she'll win the JH over. she has all season, i don't see why that would stop now. i just hope the money was worth it. alas, her delusion will probably come in very handy outside the BB house... she'll never acknowledge she's done anything wrong or feel any type of remorse. classic sociopath to the end. lol sorry so long... i just needed to get that out. if you stuck with me til the end of this, thanks for reading. i hope you enjoyed the season. and morty & crew, thanks for everything. xoxo Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
