"Arrest!" Allitt called out. The team ran back in and revived her. Then they left her alone with Allitt once more, and once more she shouted, "Arrest!" Again the doctors worked to stabilize Claire, but this time they failed. When she died, one of them said, "This should never have happened." He was right.
Your personality type matches the criminal profile of Beverley Allitt. She was a nurse who faked injury and illness to gain the attention and affection she felt she lacked as a young person. When she found that her illnesses were not inspiring the positive attention they once had, she found another venue by abusing children, and her behavior exhibited what is known as Munchausen by Proxy syndrome (MHBP). First identified in 1977, the common pattern is that of an apparently devoted parent bringing her child over and over to the doctor to treat some mysterious illness that he or she cannot seem to cure. It's the mother who makes the child ill, say Betty Alt and Sandra Wells in Wicked Women, but she denies any knowledge about the source of the illness. She may "feed the child poison to induce abdominal pain, aggravate or infect existing sores, induce apnea by smothering, or twist to break bones." One mother even injected her child with fecal matter. In other words, they injure another in order to bring attention to themselves.
Beverley Allitt somehow managed to find sympathy for loss and pain as a replacement for true love and affection. The consequences of her condition brought about the deaths of many weak and defensless children.
While you may or may not be capable of performing the horrific acts she did, you loosely resemble (with some obvious exceptions) her criminal profile based upon your general motivations, preferences and behavior patterns.
