Elizabeth Bathory

Camille Paglia is famous for the incendiary pronouncement: "There is no female Mozart because there is no female Jack the Ripper." Paglia's point is that men, rather than women, are found at both the positive and negative extremes of human endeavor.

It may be true that the world has not seen a female Mozart. However, the other part of the equation is tragically false for women may have indeed produced a great monster. Countess Elizabeth Bathory may have been a butcher far more terrible than Jack the Ripper. In fact, the crimes attributed to her would make her one of the worst mass murderers in history.

Legend tells us this very rich, beautiful and high born woman tortured and murdered some 650 young women and bathed in their warm blood to keep herself beautiful.

Your personality type matches the criminal profile of Countess Elizabeth Bathory. The Countess had a very peculiar streak of cruelty toward servants...if they were female. Bathory punished them by placing a piece of paper between a woman's toes and setting it on fire. She chastized suspected thieves by heating a coin, then forcing the culprit to hold it until it sizzled a mark in her palm. If a servant failed to press the Countess's garments adequately, a hot iron would be held to her face until she was scarred for life. These treatments often resulted in death but that was neither surprising nor disappointing to the callous Countess.

Soon, and concomitantly with these stern punishments, Bathory pursued torture as a hobby. The infliction of humiliation (girls in their teens were routinely forced to strip naked in the presence of male serfs), terror, pain, and death was an exciting pastime similar to gambling or sports for Elizabeth Bathory. It is likely that as many as 650 women and girls, some as young as twelve years of age, lost their lives to her bloodlust.

Elizabeth Bathory represents the culmination of sadism and corruption. She commanded others to do her hideous bidding, and experienced pleasure as a result. Obviously she was able to dehumanize women, but during Bathory's day (mid 17th century), peasants were in general treated quite harshly, servants were often recruited by force and usually subjected to bodily punishment by their Hungarian overlords. They were considered chattel and had no real rights. Thus, Bathory was an addict of sexism, inhumanity and power.

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.

Yeah, I've got you pretty well figured out by now.
