Rolf Harris’ Celebrity Sex Crime Link
Leading British psychotherapist and author Phillip Hodson, of the UK Council for Psychotherapy has linked disgraced paedophile Rolf Harris’ sex offences to his lifelong quest for fame, telling the Observer this week ‘he was emotionally tied up in his art, he suffered from intense loneliness and depression.’
“People who want to be celebrities are people who need excessive praise,” the author of ‘Men, An Investigation Into The Emotional Male’ and “What Kids Really Want To Know About Sex” continued.
“If you seek excessive attention and behave as if the laws don’t apply then that says an enormous amount of where you have come from,” he added
His assessment of typical celebrities’ character traits struck a chord with many of the statements on personality test Narcissistic Personality Inventory which quizzes respondents about issues including whether they ‘like to be the center of attention’: if they ‘will usually show off if they get the chance’ and do they ‘like to start new fads and fashions’ (yes’ all mean narcissist).
Psychopath test the Levenson Self-Report Psychopathy Scale also uses similar statements to distinguish people’s mindsets, including saying yes to ‘most of my problems are due to the fact that other people just don’t understand me’, ‘I find that I am able to pursue one goal for a long time’ and ‘success is based on survival of the fittest; I am not concerned about the losers.’
