Serial Killers: Why Do They Kill?
Serial Killers have been interviewed, their DNA/s studied, and their brains scanned. Their families have been interviewed. And, yet we’re still no closer to understanding what makes them so different from the rest of us. The study of a killer’s mind has fascinated scientists and laymen alike. The most gruesome murders are generally attributed to psychotics rather than psychopaths. Psychotic serial killers have lost touch with reality, while psychopathic serial killers know exactly what they are doing. The most sensational killers are thrill killers - they kill just because they like it so much. They revel in finding their targets and in the planning of it as much as in the execution. The FBI defines a “serial killer” as someone who murders two or more victims, with a cooling-off period between crimes. Thomas Hargrove, an investigative journalist has estimated that there are 2,000 at-large serial killers in the United States. According to Hargrove, “Two thousand is a ballpark figure. There are more than 220,000 unsolved murders recorded in the United States since 1980. If we put that in perspective, it is perhaps alarming if not scary that there are at least 2,000 unrecognized series of murders.” Some serial killers because of their ability to blend in with the population have eluded law enforcement with many years.
Motivation: The Key to Top Notch Sales and Customer Service
This handbook is a guide for business owners and for anyone interested in improving themselves or their business. It is based on my fifty plus years of experience in the business world, both as an employee and a business owner. Here are some of the issues I address in the book: MOTIVATION: Motivation must come from within. We call this intrinsic motivation or attitude motivation. GOAL-SETTING: Surveys have shown that clear-cut and written goals accompanied by a plan of action can increase earning by a factor of ten! KINDNESS: The fallacy of ‘nice guys finish last.’ LISTENING: Nobody can persuade like a great listener. SINCERITY: Consumers want to be treated with top notch customer service that ‘reeks’ of sincerity. CORPORATE CULTURE: Your company should aim for a culture of ‘getting things done in quickly and efficiently.’
