Psychopath : The Appreciation of Beauty



I understand beauty. I do not do so in the way that you necessarily do, for I am detached and appreciate beauty in its many forms in an intellectual fashion. Many of you often ask me, what do you feel when you listen to music, take in a view or regard a beautiful person. I shall explain this to you purely from my psychopathic perspective which is devoid of emotion, attachment or connection to enable you to understand.


The intellectual appreciation of beauty demonstrates the capacity for the human mind to discern and interpret the aesthetic qualities of the world around us. It is a thoughtful examination of the elements that evoke a sense of wonder and admiration.


When observing a captivating piece of art, listening to a haunting melody, or witnessing the breathtaking spectacle of nature, it is an emotional response that elevates your connection to beauty. It is in those moments that your hearts quicken, and an indescribable feeling washes over you, transcending mere intellectual appreciation. You may find yourselves moved to tears, your spirits uplifted, or your souls resonating with an ineffable harmony.


With art I dissect the technical aspects of a painting, analyzing the brushstrokes, color palette, and composition,


In the realm of music, the intellectual mind  unravels the intricacies of melody, harmony, and rhythm, analyzing the technical prowess of the musicians involved..


Nature, with its grandeur and intricate details, beckons the viewer to marvel at its wonders. I am readily able to  explain the geological formations, the intricate interplay of ecosystem components, or the scientific marvels of the natural world,. Standing amidst towering mountains, walking along a tranquil shoreline, or gazing up at a star-filled sky, you are moved by a sense of awe and interconnectedness. None of that applies to me.


The intellectual appreciation of beauty is undoubtedly valuable, as it allows us to recognize and analyze the components that make something aesthetically pleasing. It provides us with a language to communicate and share our interpretations of beauty with others.



The intellectual appreciation of beauty is an intriguing sphere that intertwines aesthetics, philosophy, psychology, and culture. It transcends beyond the immediate sensory experience and ventures into the profound understanding and interpretation of beauty, as it exists across a spectrum of contexts and categories, including nature, arts, mathematics, and even in the human form.


The concept of beauty has been of interest to philosophers since antiquity, from Plato and Aristotle to Kant and Hume. Plato, for instance, viewed beauty as an ideal Form, a perfect archetype that mortal things could aspire to emulate. Aristotle, on the other hand, saw beauty as a harmony of parts working together in unity.


In the 18th century, Immanuel Kant expounded on the intellectual appreciation of beauty in his “Critique of Judgment”. According to Kant, the judgment of beauty is subjective yet universal. It is an immediate response that does not rely on concepts, but it also demands a consensus. This paradox illustrates the complexity of beauty: it is both an individual experience and a social phenomenon.


The intellectual appreciation of beauty also extends to the realm of psychology. Evolutionary psychologists propose that our sense of beauty has roots in our survival instincts. They argue that humans are wired to appreciate certain landscapes, sounds, and forms because they once signaled the presence of resources or mates. For example, lush landscapes may be seen as beautiful because they suggest the availability of food and water.


From the perspective of cognitive psychology, the appreciation of beauty involves perceptual and cognitive processes, including pattern recognition, symmetry detection, and the processing of complexity. When viewing a beautiful painting or listening to a beautiful symphony, our minds engage in a dynamic process of analyzing and synthesizing information. The more we understand the artwork, the deeper our appreciation.


Art and beauty are deeply intertwined. Artists are often seen as creators of beauty, and their works as expressions of beauty. However, the appreciation of art requires more than a mere recognition of its beauty. It involves understanding the artist’s intent, the historical and cultural context, the symbolism and metaphors, and the techniques and materials used. The intellectual appreciation of art is a journey of discovery, a quest for meaning, a dialogue between the viewer and the artwork.


Beauty is also found in the realm of mathematics. Many mathematicians describe their work in terms of beauty, referring to the elegance of proofs, the simplicity of solutions, and the symmetry of structures. The appreciation of mathematical beauty requires a deep understanding of mathematical concepts and principles. It is a beauty that is not immediately accessible to the senses, but to the intellect.


The intellectual appreciation of beauty in the human form is another fascinating area. Throughout history, different cultures have had different standards and ideals of human beauty. These standards reflect societal values, beliefs, and norms. Understanding these standards and their implications helps  appreciate human beauty in a broader and deeper sense.


My appreciation of beauty is a rich and multifaceted phenomenon. It involves not only sensory perception but also cognitive processing, , cultural understanding, and philosophical reflection. It is a testament to the complexity of the human mind and the richness of human experiences. The beauty we perceive and appreciate is a mirror of ourselves.


From my  detached perspective, the appreciation of the beauty of a woman unveils a captivating realm of visual aesthetics and inherent physical intricacies. By observing and analyzing the various elements that compose a woman’s appearance, one can attain an intellectual understanding of the profound allure that lies within.


The beauty of women can be perceived through a scholarly lens, examining facial features such as symmetry, proportions, and the interplay of light and shadow. The eyes, the windows to so much, can be studied for their shape, color, and expressiveness. Likewise, the delicate curve of the nose, the gentle arch of eyebrows, and the contouring of cheekbones contribute to the overall harmony and appeal.


The aesthetic appreciation further navigates to the grace and elegance inherent in a woman’s physical form. The contours, curves, and lines that sculpt her body possess a captivating allure, playing with the interplay of proportion and harmony. The intellectual mind discerns the pleasing balance of shape and symmetry, noting the delightful rhythm that defines a woman’s physique.


There is an appreciation for the meticulous artistry involved in grooming; the deliberate choices made in hairstyle, makeup, and wardrobe unfold a visual narrative. The intellectual eye acknowledges the thought put into each detail, from the way cascading locks frame the face to the colors and textures that enhance natural beauty.


Cultural aspects also play a pivotal role in appreciating the beauty of women intellectually. The study of historical trends in fashion and societies allows for insights into the evolution of idealized standards of beauty. Understanding the influence of art, literature, and media reveals how societal expectations shape our perception of beauty and the intellectual frameworks that surround it.


Intellectual appreciation of beauty is a meditative exploration that allows one to observe, discern, and analyze the visual elements that contribute to the allure of women. This detached perspective enables a keen eye to recognize the interplay between physical attributes, proportions, and grooming practices, ultimately shaping a holistic understanding of beauty.


By divorcing the analysis from personal emotions or connections, the intellectual appreciation remains detached, purely focused on the visual aesthetics and objective qualities that define the allure of women. It enables a deeper understanding of the complexities and nuances of beauty, advancing discourse and adding to the intellectual tapestry that surrounds aesthetic appreciation.

    How do you feel when you pet dogs or cats?
    There is a feeling of wanting to squeeze a dog hard if the oxytocin levels get too high,dogs can Yelp in pain sometimes because that happens to them. Have you ever felt anything like that?
    Or do you think you have no oxytocin?

    1. HG Tudor says:

      I don’t.

      1. Trev says:

        Thanks for answering.
        I assume your one answer applies to all three questions.
        It shows how pointless my dealings were with female narcs

        1. Duchessbea says:

          Trev, there is a lot of good, decent female fish in the sea. Don’t give up. You will meet a good un’.

          1. Trev says:

            Thanks, I find it difficult to talk to women I barely know… and narcissist women make it easy by doing all the talking:)
            But I think it’s worth the effort of ignoring them from now on.

  2. Grace says:

    Interesting that you describe only the beauty of women when it comes to human beings. Being a heterosexual woman I can see the outer and the inner beauty of a man but also of a woman. And the beauty of the young (children) and the old (which is much more rare). And animals. Everything that is alive …

    HG, what about sweetness? Can you see the sweetness in a human being?

    And what about the beauty of a voice, of a smell, of a taste and of a touch?

    And the beauty of a feeling?

    1. HG Tudor says:


      I recognise those, I just did not touch on everything in this piece.

    2. Truthseeker6157 says:

      That’s a great question Grace.

  3. Witch says:

    HG I have a question, is beauty a priority in your day to day life?
    For example, when choosing a gym would you be okay with a regular gym, you go in there, you workout, you leave, as long as it gets the job done. Or would you choose a gym based on aesthetics because you feel it reflects better on you?
    Or is that more a somatic thing?
    I guess what I mean is when making decisions are you more often prioritising beauty over other things, like value for money, practicality
    Or it must have all 3? You won’t sacrifice one over the other?

    Also I have another question… do you believe (or know) as you may say that everyone fancies you, everyone is attracted to you and everyone wants to be around you. Or would you accept that some people don’t, even if they are a small minority?

    1. HG Tudor says:

      Beauty is important to me but it can be overridden where I deem it necessary. I prefer to have it, but it is not essential in certain situations.

  4. Allison says:

    Thank you for this glimpse, HG. I’m realizing I was very locked into my own views, especially that my emotion-laden responses to beauty were the correct endpoint of appreciation. This is such a new experience and I’m fascinated to learn more about your world.

    1. HG Tudor says:

      You are welcome.

  5. In so many words says:

    HG, do you think your amorality contributes to your willingness to destroy someone or something beautiful, if it suits your purpose? I remembered a famous Nietzsche quote, “If you crush a cockroach, you’re a hero. If you crush a beautiful butterfly, you’re a villain. Morals have aesthetic criteria.”

    1. HG Tudor says:

      Beauty is a perspective.

  6. WiserNow says:

    Again, another very interesting and thought-provoking post. Thank you for elaborating on your perspectives about beauty, HG.

    One thing that this post made me see is that it reveals a lot about how you think. Your appreciation of beauty is intellectual, detached, purely focused on visual aesthetics and objective aspects. To me, that is equivalent to your appreciation being ‘rational’ or even one-dimensional. It is practical and factual, based on the concrete, real and quantitative.

    You list beauty in terms of: art, music, natural landscapes, mathematics, and lastly, women. Women are included in this set of inanimate ‘objects’. The physical human form of women is evaluated as if it is an outer shell or sculpture.

    The ‘rationality’ of your appreciation of beauty reminds me of something in astrology (…bear with me here and please keep an open mind).

    In astrology, each planet has a function and each starsign has a quality. When a planet is in a particular sign, the planet’s function can be:
    – in it’s domicile (which means that the planet’s function is comfortable or at home in the sign)
    – in its exaltation (the planet’s function is promoted or helped in the sign)
    – in its detriment (the planet’s function has difficulty existing in the sign)
    – in its fall (the planet’s function is different from the sign).

    The planet Venus is said to have the function of: love, romance, beauty, art, comfort, indulgence, pleasure, ease, material wealth and riches. The position of Venus in a person’s birth-chart describes how the person expresses their desires, passions, what they value and how they relate to and experience beauty and pleasure.

    If a person’s birth-chart has Venus in the sign of Virgo, it is said that this position of Venus means the planet is in its fall in the person’s chart. This is because Virgo as a sign has the quality of being logical, pragmatic, systematic and rational. Mercury is in its domicile in Virgo and Mercury’s function is to be scientific rather than aesthetic. Mercury is concerned with the mind, with structure and order, while Venus is concerned with the heart, with pleasure and aestheticism.

    Venus still has a place in Virgo though. In Virgo, the function of Venus ‘blends’ with the rationality that is the quality of Virgo.

    (You are probably rolling your eyes at this point…)

    Without boring you to tears (which would be impossible anyway), your ‘rational’ and intellectual approach to beauty made me think of your Sun sign being Virgo and how that affects your thinking with regard to beauty. I would hazard a guess that Venus, Mercury and the Sun in your birth-chart have some interesting aspects (or relationships).

      You’ll be delighted by a future article which addresses astrology.

      1. NarcAngel says:

        Can’t wait to read your article on astrology. It may not turn out to be the case, but I am imagining it in the highly entertaining HG Mauls series format. However it is presented, it is sure to be enlightening.

      2. WiserNow says:

        An article about astrology would definitely interest me, HG. I look forward to it.

        The stars do not lie. They are silent. Fun times ahead!

      4. Trev says:

        I would think that you’re going to maul astrology.

        I looked into it myself and found that Gemini’s are often talkative and are often really into tennis. I noticed other correlations with other starsigns.
        As I converted to Christianity I have to leave it behind as its supposed to be of the devil.

          I’m not a Gemini and I’m not into tennis. Checks out.

          Dear Trev,
          I view astrology as a bit of lighthearted fun, that’s all!
          The devil is juggling with newer advancements eg AI and TikTok haha

          1. Contagious says:

            It’s odd but as a contagion who was married to a psychopath for many years, and I think truly gets it. But when married, or listening to your you tube or meeting another, yes the hairs on my back raise, yes I fell fear and disgust, but I also keep hearing the thump thump thump of a machine in a hospital calling them dead. I always hear this sound. Maybe it’s my creative mind? Or? I will never know. But I know psychopaths are driven by one heart beat, which is what they want, what they want, what they want. It has the same tempo of a person flatlining. That’s what I hear every time! That flat sound over and over and over and over. I must admit I have met very few. And when I first spoke to you, it was more like a freezing cold breeze. Like my dream about the murder of my best friend. I woke up freezing and screaming. Praying to God to never let me experience that again. Same An Arctic wind. Different than my ex husbands dum dum dum. Sex was pre-functionally like mating a zombie. It was neither bad nor good. Our time together was the same almost. Calm
            With me not knowing his criminal doings or affairs. I guess I was focused on the kids. But that feeling of being with someone gliding on ice until I broke that glide then he came alive. I interfered with his goal. Then the beast awakes

  7. Duchessbea says:

    HG, I have the greatest respect for you and you are an incredible writer. Your articles are excellent. You are a very intelligent man and from a logical perspective your point of view of things is quite wise. But I have to say, and please don’t take offence, but you are a psychopath, do I believe that you look at things like this for real, perhaps in relation to an appreciation of art and scenic mountainous views, yes, but in relation to women, I have my doubts. For a man whose main concern is supply, let us be honest, you don’t give a jot about the above in reference to women. The piece is superbly written, your logical approach and though provoking phraseology would have any unsuspecting female or male, literally lapping at your feet and swooning, but to the trained eye and more importantly, an avid and loyal reader of your work, when you are admiring a woman, the above is completely irrelevant. Yes, you can stand and admire a beautiful woman, and to everyone else in the room you are just standing there admiring, to the wise and awake, you are assessing how easy it will be to ensnare. It is all about the game. You choose a woman based on the three prime aims, not on the texture of the hair and the way it frames the face, you choose supply based on neediness and a few other things, an easy supply, it doesn’t matter whether the supply has long or short hair, whether her hair is blonde, redhead, brunette, as long as she goes with the flow and meets the three prime aims, she will qualify as supply. To a certain degree, I am sure you have your likes and dislikes when it comes to the SO, but realistically and logically, if the SO or IPPS is not meeting all requisite standards – aka the three prime aims – said SO or IPPS is viewed as no longer up to scratch and is out. New SO or IPPS is in the wings and is ready to take over. I am not trying to be facetious, absolutely not, and as someone previously referred to me as ‘poking the bear’, I am not trying to do that either, absolutely not, far from it. But in keeping it real, for you, everything has a means to an end. You are strongly oriented around getting your important needs met. There is nothing wrong with that. That is who you are. The above article is superbly written, but it is also wise to view it from the perspective of an audience member watching an actor. The actor performs his part and exits stage left. HG has given a masterclass in the power of seduction through words. How ET can be powerfully persuaded and heightened through words. As HG always says LT is very important and to apply LT to everything that you do.
    I am probably going to be criticised for what I have said, but in all honesty, I have not insulted HG nor am I trying to provoke HG, I have great respect for HG and his incredible work ethic. I have read the article and these are my thoughts based on what I felt after reading the article and what I know of HG.

    1. HG Tudor says:

      Read the title of the article, there’s a huge clue there. It is that perspective which is being exhibited. You are largely correct with regard to the assessment process of whether a person would be ensnared, that it the narcissist perspective, but I am conveying here the psychopathic perspective.

      1. WiserNow says:


        With regard to the psychopathic perspective, how does your appreciation for beauty co-exist with you relishing torture or destruction? If you appreciate the beauty of a woman, would you still relish torturing her or inflicting pain upon her?

        Is it possible for you to appreciate something while destroying it at the same time?

        Do you become bored with beauty even though you once appreciated it?

        How do you distinguish between ‘appreciation’ and ‘caring’?

        1. HG Tudor says:

          One is intellectual the other involves emotional empathy.

          1. WiserNow says:

            Thank you for your answers, HG.

        2. Anna Plyance says:

          We can all easily and regularly “appreciate something while destroying it at the same time”. It happens every time you eat a plant or animal you “appreciate” or care about.

          1. WiserNow says:

            Yes, AP, that’s true.

            Although, when considering how a narcissist or psychopath uses and ‘destroys’ other people without empathy or remorse (either physically, emotionally, psychologically), the concept is different.

          2. Jordyguin says:

            On a side note.

            Whenever a plant and an animal are given the same status of ’alive’ – it reminds me of how Native Americans were denied the status of humans in order to justify the taking of their land. They were given an animal status — absence of a soul, feelings, intelligence, awareness, rights — for very long time until they were almost extinct and granted a human-status much later down the line.

            Animals are not fruits or vegetables and there can’t be a beauty of appreciation in consuming of animals. Whenever people with empathy KNOW how nowadays meat industry treat animals and continue to justify their menu habit by for instance putting an animal and a plant in the same category; ignoring animal’s pain and deny them aliveness, awareness, intelligence, feelings — it is done within an absent emotional empathy and/or by ignorance, occasionally justified by a certain diet-propaganda, scientific meat-industry organised belief and/or food-habit.

            You would not come up with the idea of killing your pet, your cat or your dog for their meat or fur, if you posses emotional empathy and sanity.

            If you have empathy – should you ever spend your time, for instance with a free range living-, or in a permaculture integrated animals such as cow, goat, sheep, pig, chicken etc. and connect with them on the level of your pet and realise that those animals are as intelligent and as affectionate as your dog or your cat – it will become impossible for you to imagine to eat those animals!
            Cow, sheep and goat give you milk, from which you can make products like cheese, butter, cream. Chicken can give you (unfertilized) eggs. Only THIS is akin to a tree which gives you fruit. If you want a comparison, the only one is: you don’t kill a fruit tree in order to harvest the fruits, would make you look stupid wouldn’t it. Yet humanity managed to overbreed and overpopulate livestock animals and make animals suffer for human’s own stupidity.
            Not to mention China’s sadistic eating habits where cats and dogs are apples too.

            If you’re an animal eater, I beg you at least to purchase from those who provide more humane life and death to your menu. It would be better for your health as well if those animals don’t receive hormones, genetic modifications and pharmacy for their illnesses, based on the cruel and sadistic livestock farming. More sensible farmers understand the crux and change things. You buy from them, please🙏

    The paragraph about mathematics was interesting. I took pride in my book-keeping skills, the fact that I viewed the creation of my spreadsheets as a piece of art because they produced balance. In the books. It did mean less wages for the Accountant yet it freed up their time for other ‘pipelines’ of work.

    My skills in the field of understanding retail book-keeping were utilised when I applied this in evidence & facts, repeatedly, in several locations. 5 to 6 sources of evidence giving them a repeated pattern to build & create their own computerised system as a link to their overall network of transactional communications. Of stock movements. Including people ‘tracking’.

    Ah, I’m talking bollocks……

            Just be careful. You don’t want your own assets to depreciate instead of appreciate. It could turn into a liability for you…

            Boom! Tish!

What ever I did, he’d see me and raise me one.

            WiserNow, don’t mean to stick the oar in, but reading this thread here, you come across as having a somewhat high distain for HG. Again, I stick to my original first comment to you. You are belittling the good work here and the advice given. You are just here for a joke. This blog is to help people, not hinder them.

  9. Carole says:

    An extremely comprehensive and informative piece of writing by you
    HG ❤️
    The mind is an amazing thing and your mind appears significantly more powerful than any other I am aware of, this only confirms why you are the Ultra.
    Thank you for this examination into your mind enabling us to understand how you view things.
    Sending you love xxx

  10. A Victor says:

    This is fascinating. Is this only with reference to yourself HG? I ask because it makes me think so much of my dad, a UMR Elite, who had a keen interest in all of these things. He dissected things in the same way also and I believe it was from curiosity but also at times to stage of boredom. It is chilling especially how you describe women’s beauty, so objectively, he did this the same. No mention of psychopathy in his NDC results, which makes me curious how much of this is psychopathy, being an Upper, Greater or Ultra, or of the Elite cadre. Or, if this is only specific to you, which did his observation, study of things in this way come from?

    This also made me think of the attention to detail that our microexpression’s garner, so much attention to detail and breaking things down into pieces. This explains how we can be quite predictable, are there occasions where the big picture turns out differently than expected? Is that experienced as a loss of control, and then steps would be taken to regain control?

    Thank you for writing this, absolutely informative, clear, concise and very interesting.

    1. HG Tudor says:

      It is my viewpoint formed by my psychopathy.

        Thank you for the reply HG.

      2. Contagious says:

        It’s obvious about you and a tiny tiny percent of the 1%. But you know the vast majority don’t think about beauty, I will await the blog about the vast majority.

  11. Sweetest Perfection says:

    “However, the appreciation of art requires more than a mere recognition of its beauty. It involves understanding the artist’s intent, the historical and cultural context, the symbolism and metaphors, and the techniques and materials used. The intellectual appreciation of art is a journey of discovery, a quest for meaning, a dialogue between the viewer and the artwork.“ ♥️Thank you for saying it.

    Aesthetics is a fluid concept and I would throw in Theodor Adorno and the study of Aesthetics and Politics, which you summarized magnificently in linking the idea of beauty to historical, social, and cultural components. In that sense, there’s even an Aesthetics of unpleasantness, and of discomfort…
    Using (vaguely) Kant’s concept of sensus communis, I do find beauty in refinement, intellectual taste and brilliance. Of course I’m just quoting Kant broadly speaking because I do not agree with his racist remarks nor with the classist interpretation that could be made of this concept.

    There’s beauty in your writing and in your brilliance. In all aesthetic interpretations. Until the horror takes over…

      Thank you SP, best not invoke the horror, but then, that would take away an aspect of my beauty.

        No problem, we’ll keep it in the attic, like Dorian Gray.

        I was pondering on your answer (instead of finishing an essay that is due this week, but this is more fascinating). In a past thread, Anna mentioned the human psyche is inherently morbid as a response to my asking for details of her horror stories.
        It’s not merely a question of being morbid. There’s an aesthetics of the horror in creating fear and an Aesthetic Attitude in embracing it. One needs to know the momentum, the finesse in raising suspense, the chilling atmosphere, and one needs to prepare herself to embrace the horror of an eerie story. Having said that, I prefer to keep that part of your beauty at a distance, mostly enjoying it vicariously as a spectator of the drama in your stories, HG, never as the protagonist in them. Wait, why would I even think they are the protagonist? YOU are!

        1. Truthseeker6157 says:

          In some ways SP, I think witnessing horror is an affirmation of life.

          Similar to motorists rubber necking a car accident. Affirmation of life. Allegedly.

      3. In so many words says:

        HG, I see a beauty in your complete detachment, precision and logic. But it’s beauty best admired from a distance.

        Brilliant but again I think you are in the top percent of psychopaths. Maybe 1%. I would say your piece artistically, intellectually and movingly explains you. A cultured man. BUT I think most psychopaths are base. The majority. Criminals breaking laws, norms, and goal oriented. Like animals. Am I wrong? My ex was one. Yes he liked beautiful women lots of them even when married 3 times. He once said to me when I wanted a divorce”what more could a woman want?” Looking at our 5000 square foot mansion and two rolls Royce’s a Mercedes and a dodge ( mine). I said how about fidelity, respect, love?” There are some things that are priceless. He felt like most in my neighborhood that if you made enough money, a woman should turn her cheek to his transgressions. My mommie group would discuss it. One put condoms in her Fortune 500 husbands suitcase when he traveled. Where is the beauty in that? I get rich men cultivate women, art, cars, houses but they are collectors. Their goal is to own beauty. That’s not beautiful. I think your article is brilliant but excludes the mentality of most psychopath’s and glorifies the mindset of a select few who still have no conscience and cause great harm. Still I can’t help myself from liking you and being impressed by you. No doubt your intelligence on music, the arts even nature impresses many. And I respect you. And all should be valued. God was the greatest artist after all.
