In doing this course, be very certain you never go past a word you do not fully understand. The only reason a person gives up a study or becomes confused or unable to learn is because he has gone past a word he did not understand.

The confusion or inability to understand or learn comes AFTER a word you did not know the meaning of. It might not only be the new and unusual words that you did not understand.

One of the most important facts in the whole subject of study is that you must never go past a word that you do not understand.

In every subject that you took up and then left incomplete, you will find that there were words that you read but you did not know what they meant.

So while doing this course be very, very certain you never go past a word you do not fully understand.

If what you are studying becomes confusing or you can’t seem to understand it, there will be a WORD just earlier that you have not understood.

Don’t go any further, but go back to BEFORE you got into trouble and find the word you did not fully understand. Wherever you see a word that is underlined, you can click on it and it will immediately give you the meaning of that word.

As you go through the course, you can also click on the menu at the top of each course page where it says “Glossary” (which is a list of words and what they mean) and it will take you to a list of words used in the course and give you the meaning of each.

If you cannot find the word you are looking for listed in the glossary, get a simple dictionary and look up its meaning there.

Welcome to the Cause of Suppression Online Course

Whenever someone is doing well and then suddenly starts to do badly, gets ill or starts to make mistakes, there is a very exact reason for this. It is not just fate (some hidden force that decides what is going to happen). There is something that caused this to happen.

In the same way, when someone feels happy and is succeeding in life and then, for no reason that can easily be seen, he starts feeling down, can’t seem to do something as well as he did before and is now sad and gloomy more often, somebody or something made this happen.

You may not have realized it, but there are two specific types of people in society—some actually want you to do better, while others actually work hard to make you fail. These bad people hide what they are doing and they are not easy to see if you don’t know how to look for them. But they do exist in life.

What you need to be able to do is to see and know who your friends really are. Who are the people you know, live and work with that really want you to do well and who are the people that are trying to make you fail? When you can answer this question and know how to handle the people trying to stop you, you can start to do far better in life and be more stable, successful and happy once again.

The L. Ron Hubbard technology in this course gives you the tools you need to handle the cause of suppression and teaches you how to use them.

The Anti-Social Personality

Anti- means against or opposite something.

Social means having to do with the health and happiness of people. It also means friendly or getting along well with others.

Anti-social describes behavior that is generally harmful to the health and happiness of people.

Personality has to do with the qualities of a person’s behavior, as shown by his actions and his thoughts.

An Anti-Social Personality, then, is a person who is against any individual, activity or group that works to help others improve.

There are certain characteristics (good or bad qualities that someone is recognized by) that cause about 20 percent of the population to be very much against any activity or group that works to help people, make them better, happier or more able. Such people are known to have anti-social tendencies. A tendency is the way someone behaves as a result of his thinking. For example, an Anti-Social Personality has a tendency to always find fault in another person.

Crime and criminal acts (stealing, harming others, rape, murder, etc.) are committed by Anti-Social Personalities. People who are insane and in mental institutions commonly find that they ended up that way because they were in contact with such personalities.

As they make up only 20 percent of the population and as only 2½ percent of this 20 percent are truly dangerous, we see that with a very small amount of work, we could do a great deal to better the conditions in our world.

When we look for the cause of a business that is failing, we discover that, somewhere on its staff, the Anti-Social Personality is hard at work.

In families that are breaking up, we commonly find that Anti-Social Personalities are involved. Where a person’s life has become rough and he is failing, a careful review will find one or more such personalities at work.

For example, take a restaurant that is failing and going out of business. It is not making enough money, yet it seems to be attracting a lot of customers. We find that the person handling the money is an Anti-Social Personality. He has been stealing money and putting it in his pocket. He has also been finding fault with the staff and making them feel like they cannot do their jobs.

Or take a family that is living together happily until an uncle, who is an Anti-Social Personality, comes to stay with them. He spreads bad news and finds fault with each of the family members every day. The whole family becomes upset (but doesn’t realize why) and starts arguing with each other. The children decide to move out and stay by themselves.

As there are 80 percent of us trying to get along and only 20 percent trying to prevent us from doing so, our lives would be much easier if we knew the exact manifestations of such a personality. Because if we did, we could see who the Anti-Social Personality was and save ourselves from much failure and heartbreak.

It is important, then, to examine and list the characteristics of the Anti-Social Personality. Characteristics are those things you can recognize about a person, such as what he does or says and how he says them and how he behaves toward you and toward other people. Because the Anti-Social Personality causes so much harm in the daily lives of so many, it is necessary for decent people to become better informed on this subject and to be able to recognize an Anti-Social Personality by his behavior.
