How are satanists in their day to day behavior?.

Most people picture them as: immoral, ruthless, evil...

Is this accurate to some degree?.


Note: I am aware of LaVey's writings were many of these myths are dispelled. However, many satanists do show some particular personality traits that may help to characterize them better.

I'm mostly a pleasant chap; at least in my real life and work environment, most people, and certainly those that bring cash, tend to like me. I chat with them, make jokes, listen to their little problems and give advice when they need it.

But it's a role I play and a role I'm pretty good at. If I am honest, I hardly care about anyone out there and some of those that think I'm a great guy, I despise enormously. But it suits my agenda to be perceived as nice.

Does this make me immoral? Not at all. I do have my own morals and I prefer to be honorable although only to those deserving.

If there is anything that could be said about my personality, it is that I am calculated. I never had a problem with that myself.

I guess I'm not the only satanist suffering from that.

So we should say Satanists are amoral instead of immoral.

Am I correct?.

Satanists are intelligent people, they will look for the best approach to life and to each situation each and every time, you can't really summarize how a Satanist is or how she is supposed to be, the Satanist has her own particular view of morality, which sometimes can be considered ruthless and evil by regular Christian-moral standards but that suits her well and each also will have her own personality based on her own tastes and choices.

Asking how a Satanist is supposed to be is no different to asking “how big is a fish?”

I guess Diavolo described me to a tee. Although if people get on my nerves (which will take quite a bit of effort, as I am very patient) the facade tends to drop a little and I can be quite blunt. But I guess I am not the only Satanist that "suffers" from that.

But you wouldn't be able to peg me as a Satanist just by observing my behaviour. It will shine through somewhat when you touch certain topics in conversation, but in my day to day diurnal routine I'm just as boring as the next person.

I could start a whole text with descriptions of my own personality and at the same time refer towards past experiences. But somehow I think THIS person has worded it way better than I'll ever can.

I'm a nice guy, I tend to brighten up peoples days by being nice to them. If you're mean enough to me, you'll learn that I can be a prick. But I'm a good guy who does good things for people. Ruthless I am not.

Immoral? Depends on what you mean by morality. If you mean immoral as in a sinner, then yeah. Immoral as in, I don't have any ethical standards, then no. I actually have pretty high ethical standards.

I see no reason to expect more conformity from Satanists than from any other group of people organized around an idea.

If I'm to generalize, the actual Satanists I've met tend to be kinder, gentler and more compassionate than your typical Christian.

I suppose when someone fairly new to Satanism is thinking about Satanism they feel rebellious and evil. Against everyone.

But people who've learned about Satanism and have incorporated it into their every day lives, don't think about it much, so they aren't so "evil".

That doesn't sound like the difference between a Satanist personality and a non-Satanist personality.

Instead it seems like the difference between an immature (dualist) Satanist perspective or behaviour and that of a more mature Satanist who transcends moral categories like 'evil and good'. She begins to behave authentically rather than to cling to an artificial contrivance from hir previous moral impingement.
