L Ron Hubbard’s 12 Characteristics

The Antisocial Personality
Today I found that a site that I had linked to in this article concerning Tavistock Social Engineering, was no longer working.
November 6, 2013 – Caroline Letkeman (Gerry Armstrong) Refund and Reparation website
I grow weary of having to change the links with these people (this has happened before) and so I have decided to make an easier to access list of these characteristics for people to see.
The name of the relevant technical bulletin (HCOB) by Hubbard is THE ANTISOCIAL PERSONALITY, THE ANTI-SCIENTOLOGIST, published 27 September 1966.
These are photographs of the actual pages listing these characteristics, from one of our books containing the Technical Bulletins of Scientology.
These are large images – click to enlarge.
Now here’s the text itself.
The antisocial personality has the following attributes:
1. He or she speaks only in very broad generalities.
“They say … ” “Everybody thinks … ” “Everyone knows … ” and such expressions are in
continual use, particularly when imparting rumor. When asked, “Who is everybody … ” it normally turns out to be one source and from this source
the antisocial person has manufactured what he or she pretends is the whole opinion of the whole society.
This is natural to them since to them all society is a large hostile generality, against the antisocial in particular.
2. Such a person deals mainly in bad news, critical or hostile remarks, invalidation and general suppression.
“Gossip” or “harbinger of evil tidings” or “rumormonger” once described such persons. It is notable that there is no good news or complimentary remark passed on by such a person.
3. The antisocial personality alters, to worsen, communication when he or she relays a message or news.
Good news is stopped and only bad news, often embellished, is passed along. Such a person also pretends to pass on “bad news” which is in actual fact invented.
4. A characteristic, and one of the sad things about an antisocial personality, is that it does not respond to treatment or reform or psychotherapy.
5. Surrounding such a personality we find cowed or ill associates or friends who, when not driven actually insane, are yet behaving in a crippled manner in life, failing, not succeeding.
Such people make trouble for others. When treated or educated, the near associate of the antisocial personality has no stability of gain but promptly relapses or loses his advantages of knowledge, being under the suppressive influence of the other. Physically treated, such associates commonly do not recover in the expected time but worsen and have poor convalescences.
It is quite useless to treat or help or train such persons so long as they remain under the influence of the antisocial connection. The largest number of insane are insane because of such antisocial connections and do not recover easily for the same reason. Unjustly we seldom see the antisocial personality actually in an institution. Only his “friends” and family are there.
6. The antisocial personality habitually selects the wrong target.
If a tire is flat from driving over nails he or she curses a companion or a noncausative source of the trouble. If the radio next door is too loud he or
she kicks the cat.
If A is the obvious cause, the antisocial personality inevitably blames B, or C or D.
7. The antisocial cannot finish a cycle of action.
Such become surrounded with incomplete projects.
8. Many antisocial persons will freely confess to the most alarming crimes when forced to do so but will have no faintest sense of responsibility for them.
Their actions have little or nothing to do with their own volition. Things “just happened.”
They have no sense of correct causation and particularly cannot feel any sense of remorse or shame therefore.
9. The antisocial personality supports only destructive groups and rages against and attacks any constructive or betterment group.
10. This type of personality approves only of destructive actions and fights against constructive or helpful actions or activities.
The artist in particular is often found as a magnet for persons with antisocial personalities who see in his art something which must be destroyed and covertly, “as a friend,” proceed to try.
11. Helping others is an activity which drives the antisocial personality nearly berserk.
Activities, however, which destroy in the name of help are closely supported.
12. The antisocial personality has a bad sense of property and conceives that the idea that anyone owns anything is a pretense, made up to fool people.
Nothing is ever really owned.
So there you have it – Hubbard’s 12 characteristics of an “antisocial” or “suppressive” person.
