    Default Cults

    When I was young I used to think it would be fun to start a cult. I don't know if it ever fully passed.

    But I have wondered what kind of people would like to start a cult. I kind of figured I would use charismatic
    leadership.

    The part about charismatic leadership sounds EIE. Just look at H****R and his cult.

    I've done a bit of reading about Scientology for over the years, and it seems LRH started Scientology simply as a profit making venture. He equated prophet with profit. He had something of that stereotypical ESTp showman quality about him, had no qualms with creating obviously unethical practices. I think you can break cult leaders down into a few groups:

    1. Those looking just to fleece their flock. These would be people like LRH.

    2. Those who have a narcissistic need to be worshipped and control people.

    3. Those with a genuine spiritual outlook that they want to share and promote. (I'm guessing these are actually the rarest)

    4. Someone with a combination of the above traits.

    I've always wanted my own cult but the problem with me is that I'm a behind-the-scenes kind of person who isn't into marketing like LRH who is amazing at it. I would start a cult yesterday if I had will power to make a centric idea and influence plan and travel everywhere telling people about it. I really just want to lay in bed and eat chocolate ice cream in my pjs
