Pat Forte Obituary

Forte_Patrick_Obituary

Mass of Christian Burial will be 11:00 a.m. Thursday, June 15, 2017 at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Sartell for Patrick R. Forte, age 51, who passed away after a courageous battle with cancer. Rev. Tim Baltes will officiate and burial will be at Calvary Cemetery in Virginia, Minnesota, at a later date.

Visitation will be from 4-8 p.m. Wednesday at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church and one hour prior to the services Thursday at the church. The Rosary will be prayed at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the church. Burial will be at a later date.

Patrick was born February 16, 1966 in Eveleth, Minnesota to Robert & Marjorie (Brauch) Forte. He was a graduate of Eveleth High School class of 1984. Pat attended and played hockey for the American International college in Springfield, Massachusetts and graduated from Bemidji State with a BA in Education and an MA from Hamline University. His elementary school teaching career spanned over 25 years including the Austin, Mora, Brainerd, and St. Cloud school districts. Pat’s focus of teaching was math and science.

Pat started his high school coaching career in Chisholm, Minnesota and went on to coach in Austin, Mora, Brainerd, St., Cloud, and Sartell. He spent 5 years working with the Minnesota Select 17s, 2 years in the Upper Midwest Elite League, and then on to St. John’s University in Collegeville.

In December 2016, Pat was presented with the “Spirit of Life Award” by the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame. The award is for those facing adversity in their life but still determined to give back to the game of hockey. He used his adversity to inspire others through motivational speaking engagements. In addition to his love of hockey, Pat enjoyed life, especially fishing, hunting, and golf with his son and many, many friends.

Survivors include his son, Nicholas, of Austin, MN; mother, Marjorie Forte, of Eveleth, MN; sisters, Barbara (Thomas) Lucarelli of Mounds View, MN, Diane (James) Juth of Rochester, MN, Catherine (Thomas) Harrington of Fridley, MN; nephews, Gino, Marco, Michael, Joseph, Jared; and nieces, Jenna and Jillian.

CNN reports that former Vice President Joe Biden is launching a political action committee, “American Possibilities PAC,” setting off speculation about a possible 2020 run for president:

While establishing the group could indicate Biden’s potential interest in another presidential bid, his comments on the subject in recent months have been varied.

Biden, who is 74 years old, gave a speech in New Hampshire last month, telling the first-in-the-nation primary state at the time that he was not running.

In the lead-up to the 2016 Democratic primary, Biden publicly mulled a run before standing down, citing his still-fresh grief from the death of his son Beau as a reason he did not mount a bid. Later, Biden expressed regret about this decision publicly, criticizing Hillary Clinton’s campaign and saying he thought he was a great candidate.

Earlier this month, he said he likely wouldn’t run in 2020, but did not write off the possibility.

The Personality Profile of Vice President Joe Biden

Jaclynn Beier, Brianna Ricci, Lindsey Holm, and Katie Carlson conducted a pilot study of the political personality of Joe Biden at the Unit for the Study of Personality in Politics in 2009.

Lindsey Holm and Jaclynn Beier present their research poster, "The Personality Profile of Vice President Joe Biden," at the 44th annual Minnesota Undergraduate Psychology Conference on April 18, 2009, at the College of Saint Benedict in St. Joseph, Minn.

A preliminary psychological analysis of U.S. vice president Joe Biden by Jaclynn Beier, Brianna Ricci, Lindsey Holm, Katie Carlson, and Aubrey Immelman, Ph.D., at the Unit for the Study of Personality in Politics revealed that Vice President Biden’s primary personality pattern is Dominant/asserting, complemented by secondary Outgoing/congenial and Ambitious/confident features. In summary, Biden’s personality composite can be characterized as a dominant extravert.

A preliminary psychological analysis of U.S. vice president Mike Pence by Greta Schleif, Claudia Luther, Lauren Lingenfelter, Kristie Vang, Andrew Weiler, Olivia Musser, and Aubrey Immelman, Ph.D., at the Unit for the Study of Personality in Politics, revealed that Vice President Pence’s primary personality pattern is Conscientious/dutiful, complemented by secondary Dominant/asserting, Ambitious/confident, and Accommodating/cooperative features and a minor Outgoing/congenial tendency. In summary, Pence’s personality composite can be characterized as a conscientious deliberator.

Abstract

The poster presents the results of an indirect assessment of the personality of U.S. vice president Mike Pence, from the conceptual perspective of personologist Theodore Millon. Information concerning Pence was collected from biographical sources and media reports and synthesized into a personality profile using the Millon Inventory of Diagnostic Criteria (MIDC), which yields 34 normal and maladaptive personality classifications congruent with Axis II of DSM–IV.

The personality profile yielded by the MIDC was analyzed on the basis of interpretive guidelines provided in the MIDC and Millon Index of Personality Styles manuals. Pence’s primary personality pattern was found to be Conscientious/dutiful, complemented by secondary Dominant/asserting, Ambitious/confident, and Accommodating/cooperative features and a minor Outgoing/congenial tendency.

In the absence of concurrent primary personality patterns serving to moderate or offset high conscientiousness, Pence may be described as a “conscientious deliberator” or “dutiful conformist” — very similar to 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Leaders with this personality profile are characteristically prudent, proper, dignified, dependable, and more principled than most personality types. They are highly organized, with a strong work ethic and careful attention to detail. Dutiful and diligent, conscientious leaders excel in crafting public policy, though they are not typically regarded as visionary or transformational leaders.

Psychology Today recently (Jan. 31, 2017) reported:

In the several days since psychologist John Gartner posted a petition on Facebook declaring that Donald Trump must be removed from office because he has “a serious mental illness that renders him psychologically incapable of competently discharging the duties of President of the United States,” more than 18,000 psychologists, psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals have signed their agreement.

Gartner, a psychologist in private practice in Baltimore and New York, author of a psychobiography of Bill Clinton, and a former instructor in psychiatry at Johns Hopkins, contends that Trump “manifestly” meets the DSM-published criteria for at least three personality disorders: narcissistic personality disorder (NPD), antisocial personality disorder, and paranoid personality disorder. They are a “toxic brew” that in his view not only make Trump “dangerous” but add up to “malignant narcissism,” not a diagnosis formalized in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual [of mental disorders, published by the American Psychiatric Association] but a label coined by the German-born psychologist and psychoanalyst Erich Fromm.

An indirect personality assessment of Donald Trump conducted 2015–2016 from the conceptual perspective of psychologist Theodore Millon, employing the Millon Inventory of Diagnostic Criteria (MIDC), which is congruent with Axis II of DSM–IV, revealed that Trump’s predominant personality patterns are Ambitious/exploitative (Scale 2: a measure of narcissistic tendencies) and Outgoing/impulsive (Scale 3: a measure of histrionic tendencies), infused with secondary features of the Dominant/controlling pattern (Scale 1A: a measure of sadistic tendencies) and supplemented by a Dauntless/adventurous tendency (Scale 1B: a measure of antisocial and sensation-seeking tendencies).

The study found no empirical evidence of a Distrusting personality pattern (Scale 9: a measure of paranoid tendencies) — an integral component of malignant narcissism, a severely disturbed personality disorder characterized by narcissistic grandiosity, self-absorption, and lack of empathy; no constraints of conscience (an antisocial tendency); a paranoid orientation; and unconstrained aggression (sadism). Notably, Scale 1A (sadistic) and Scale 1B (antisocial) also failed to reach the MIDC scale elevation threshold of 24 required for inferring the existence of a personality disorder. Consequently, it cannot be concluded that Donald Trump is a malignant narcissist.

MIDC-Scale-Scores_Donald-Trump

According to the Psychology Today report, psychiatrist Allen Frances — who helped write the criteria for personality disorders — views “public diagnoses being bandied about” as inaccurate and missing the point, because “they ignore the criterion that symptoms must be causing distress and impairment.” Donald Trump, according to Frances, “causes distress to others, not to himself … [and] is rewarded for his behaviors.”

Russia Compiles Psychological Dossier on Trump for Putin

By Bill Neely

February 20, 2017

MOSCOW — A dossier on Donald Trump’s psychological makeup is being prepared for Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Among its preliminary conclusions is that the new American leader is a risk-taker who can be naïve, according to a senior Kremlin adviser.

Trump “doesn’t understand fully who is Mr. Putin — he is a tough guy,” former Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Fedorov told NBC News.

Added content: Psychological Profile of Vladimir Putin

The file is being compiled by retired diplomats and some of Putin’s staff, he added.

The attempt to get inside the U.S. president’s mind is aimed at helping Putin plan for his first meeting with America’s new leader, the date for which is yet to be decided.

“Very serious preparatory work is going on in the Kremlin, including a paper — seven pages — describing a psychological portrait of Trump [link added], especially based on this last two to three months, and the last weeks,” added Fedorov, who said he has known Trump since 2000.

The dossier was being revised regularly, he said, adding that many in the Kremlin believed that Trump viewed the presidency as a business.

Fedorov added: “Trump is not living in a box — he is living in a crowd. He should listen to the people around him especially in the areas where he is weak.”

It is normal for any president or leader to be fully briefed before entering negotiations for the first time with a rival leader, but preparing a detailed dossier on the mind and instincts of a U.S. leader is unusual. …
