the character of Roger in the film Window of Opportunity is clearly a sociopath. Using examples from the film, explain why this is true.
It has been argued that too many of our corporate and political leaders are sociopaths, and having such people in positions of power is deleterious to our society and the world.
Preston McCafee’s website summarizes some of the common features in descriptions of the behavior of sociopaths: “Glibness and Superficial Charm, Manipulative and Conning, Grandiose Sense of Self (Feels entitled to certain things as “their right”), Pathological Lying, Lack of Remorse, Need for Stimulation (Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common.), Callousness/Lack of Empathy (Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others’ feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.), Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature (Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others.), Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity, Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility.”
Based on the qualities and behavior mentioned above, the character of Roger in the film Window of Opportunity is clearly a sociopath. Using examples from the film, explain why this is true. Then examine one person from either the business or political world and argue why that person is also are sociopath, and where possible compare him or her to the character of Roger.
