Re: Portrait of a Psychopath
- Oh my. From the looks of it, I eat young ones for supper when the moon is full, wipe my mouth with a bloodied napkin, and utter tasteless jokes about the unspeakable crimes I commit. Call me Hannibal Lecter and ask Stephen King to write my biography.
I believe it's called projection :
11. Psychology .
a. the tendency to ascribe to another person feelings, thoughts, or attitudes present in oneself, or to regard external reality as embodying such feelings, thoughts, etc., in some way.
b. Psychoanalysis . such an ascription relieving the ego of a sense of guilt or other intolerable feeling.
