whats the diffrence between trolling and lying than?
I think one feature in trolling is saying something that one doesn't care at all about just because the person saying it is trying to get a reaction out of you. The goal is to get emotional, to make you care, and to make you overreact. Then you can make the person go whatever direction you like. Trolling can be an information gathering tool, a way to develop the person, a way to control the person, a way to inflict pain, or an anti-marketing tool (a way to make look stupid in public).
Those are the first things that come to mind about trolling. Claw trolling me has helped me develop as a person. Quite often people who troll have very large issues in their personality, and are often in the dark triad: narcissism, machiavellianism, & psychopathy.
-Narcissism is characterized by grandiosity, pride, egotism, and a lack of empathy.
-Machiavellianism is characterized by manipulation and exploitation of others, a cynical disregard for morality, and a focus on self-interest and deception.
-Psychopathy is characterized by continuing antisocial behavior, impulsivity, selfishness, callousness, and remorselessness.
Now how do these characteristics fit to Claw?
-lack of empathy: yes
-manipulatin and exploitation of others: yes
-cynical disregard for morality: don't know. I lean more towards no.
-focus on self-interest & deception: I would say yes
-continuing antisocial behaviour: yes
-impulsivity: don't know. I would lean more towards yes.
-callousness: not sure. I would say yes.
