Garfield cartoon reveals sociopathic behavior

Garfield without GarfieldTake the cat out of the strip and you basically have some crazy homeless type babbling incoherently to himself. One brave blogger using photoshop has exposed the neurotic behavior the typical lonely cat owner for who they really are. If you look closely enough this cartoons display all the classic symptoms of a sociopath.

Garfield without Garfield
Glibness and Superficial Charm

Garfield without Garfield
Manipulative and Conning
They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.

Garfield without Garfield
Grandiose Sense of Self
Feels entitled to certain things as “their right.”

Garfield without Garfield
Pathological Lying
Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.

Garfield without Garfield
Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.

Garfield without Garfield
Shallow Emotions
When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.

Garfield without Garfield
Need for Stimulation
Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common.

Garfield without Garfield
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.

Garfield without Garfield
Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim. Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others.

Garfield without Garfield
Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency
Usually has a history of behavioral and academic difficulties, yet “gets by” by conning others. Problems in making and keeping friends; aberrant behaviors such as cruelty to people or animals, stealing, etc.

Garfield without Garfield
Not concerned about wrecking others’ lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.

Garfield without Garfield
Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity
Promiscuity, child sexual abuse, rape and sexual acting out of all sorts.

Garfield without Garfield
Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future, poor work ethic but exploits others effectively.

Garfield without Garfield
Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution. Changes life story readily.

Garfield minus Garfield Updated Daily

And if you answered yes to most of these symptoms seek professional help or buy a cat.

  2. […] Although, to affect a drastic change in tone, references to sociopathic behavior can be humorously engaging.  To wit: http://retardzone.com/2008/02/29/garfield-cartoon-reveals-sociopathic-behavior/ […]

  3. No one has to think too hard to know that Jon is pathetic. Thats the Point! He is supposed to make our pathetic lives look good. To anyone who thinks it’s necessary to read more into cartoons like this then is needed, I offer this; Read something else. You aren’t getting it you never will. M

  4. Merritt… I think you’re the one that’s not getting it. There isn’t anything deep about Garfield. That’s its appeal. And that’s the joke here. Calm down and learn to take a joke. Did you not see the name of the website? It’s called retard for a reason.

  6. In the 18th cent.,There HAVE been plays where the actor for the main character was too drunk or indisposed to be onstage, so the play was done without the character. Macklin’s LOVE A LA MODE was an example. A scene where he is supposed to be making amusing remarks made the -unaccompanied heroine- look like a solo hysteric. The solo duel had to be seen to be believed. Nowadays we have understudies.
