Geffner This is not a test to diagnose psychological disorder, rather it gives you hypothesis to look fo

@SKrafftFox10
Back with PM session. Dr. Geffner says #jodiarias tested submissive and eager to please others on psychological tests.

@mikewatkiss3tv
Dr. Geffner says MMPI shows #jodiarias to be “submissive” person who “likes to please others”-generally not angry or hostile”

@Gia_Vang
#JodiArias trial psychologist explaining she is much more submissive and tries to please others, not angry or hostile person.

@Gia_Vang
#JodiArias psychologist on stand says she is introverted, could have bizarre thinking and thoughts. Could be weird dreams or flashbacks.

@Gia_Vang
#JodiArias psychologist says she is not generally an angry or hostile person according to a few scales they’ve looked at.

@SKrafftFox10
So it’s a mixture of submissiveness and bizarre thinking w/#jodiarias: Dr. Geffner.

She feels no control over who she is where she is going, feels alienated from herself and others. – #jodiarias psychologist

@Gia_Vang
When asked if results are bc of conviction, psychologist in #jodiarias trial says isn’t bc of particular sit, more of personality issue.

@Gia_Vang
We just know there’s a bunch of red flags we need to explore. – #jodiariaspsychologist

@monicalindstrom
The MMPI does not diagnose personality disorders but it diagnoses personality in genera

@Gia_Vang
MCMI test #JodiArias scores normal range for antisocial dependent avoidance, doesn’t reach close to clinical range.

@WildAboutTrial
According to Geff, some of these Qs determine whether or not the client is manipulating the test for specific answers. “#jodiarias did not.”

Jeffrey Evan Gold@jeffgoldesq
#JodiArias DrG is now saying another test says Jodi is nervous and depressed and maybe PTSD. Need to look further

@Gia_Vang
Only thing that’s consistent between two test at this point is anxiety and PTSD for #jodiarias – psychologist

@william_pitts
photo up on the big screen wasn’t inntroduced at trial. Says “Jodi and Matt McCartney”, they’re sitting in a seashell…

@SKrafftFox10
The point of this testimony is to show #jodiarias was in other relationships that didn’t end in murder. So jurors wonder about TA.

@mikewatkiss3tv
Dr. Geffner describes #jodiarias as “quite creative” w/ interests in “art & photography

@mikewatkiss3tv
Geffner tells jurors that some of #jodiarias old friends thought she was “bi-polar

@WildAboutTrial
Out of the sizzle. Geff explains that Matts description of #JodiArias included “she wasn’t manipulative, not aggressive or abusive”

@william_pitts
Geffner says people told him #JodiArias had rapid mood swings. McCartney said she wasn’t manipulative or angry.

@CarolynSungCNN
#jodiarias had rapid mood swings according to people around her. Matt described JA as not being aggressive, wasn’t manipulative.

@mikewatkiss3tv
Geffner tells jurors #jodiarias does not have pattern of “aggressiveness” or “hostility”& “wasn’t manipulative”

@SKrafftFox10

Some statements from co-workers of #JodiArias at Ventanna Inn are up and Geff continues to point out how amazing she was.

@william_pitts
Geffner has a timeline of #JodiArias relationship with #TravisAlexander

@WildAboutTrial
JW asks if #JodiArias met TA at a PPL conference. Juan objects, leading. Feisty. Geff says TA walked across room to introduce himself 2 JA

@WildAboutTrial
According to Geff, TA proceeded to instigate additional meetings. VIP dinner with exclusive seating for PPL power players

@mikewatkiss3tv
Dr. Geffner now telling jurors how TA introduced himself to #jodiarias at convention in Vegas-“he initiated contact”

Point being TA pursued #JodiArias. She promptly breaks up with her live-in boyfriend.

@william_pitts
Geffner’s timeline includes #JodiArias getting a Book of Mormon and giving oral sex in a 30 day period.

@SKrafftFox10
#jodiarias and Travis Alexander within a month were involved with Book of Mormon and oral sex, Dr. Geffner says. Calls it “mixed message.”

@WildAboutTrial
On the map we discuss a weekend trip in October where they “rent a hotel room.” Geff says TA didn’t talk to #jodiarias for 3 days after sex.

@WildAboutTrial
Geff says this is a mixed message. She was not in control of the relationship and it psychologically devastated her

@WildAboutTrial
“Within 2 months of meeting he’s now sexting. He’s sending pictures of his penis to her.” – Geff on TA.

@mikewatkiss3tv
TA starts “sexting”-sending JA photos of private parts & then baptizing her into Mormon Church

@CarolynSungCNN
Dr. Geffner says #jodiarias was baptized to please TA. He also talks about the confusion over their relationship.

@WildAboutTrial
After regular contact & sex… Geff says TA told #JodiArias to date other people. Geff says JA was confused & blamed herself.

@william_pitts
12/2006 #TravisAlexander told #JodiArias to date other people. Arias thought it was her fault.

@WildAboutTrial
On screen, email from #JodiArias LONG EMAIL, asking where they stood. Says they are physically attracted to each other.

@WildAboutTrial
Geff repeatedly accuses TA of being manipulative.

@SKrafftFox10
Dr. Geffner is basically repeating Dr. LC Fonseca’s testimony: TA manipulated #jodiarias. Defense team constructing narrative for jury.

@william_pitts
Geffner saying #TravisAlexander positioned himself as in control of the relationship and #JodiArias history made that a problem

@WildAboutTrial
Geff now fixates on the worst quotes from the Chris & Sky Hughes emails. Terrible quotes blown up on screen

@WildAboutTrial
Geff reiterates to jury that Chris Hughes is a MALE & a friend of TA’s not#JodiArias. Geff calls the email “a warning.”

@WildAboutTrial
Willmott trying to introduce a follow up email involving Chris/Sky Hughes, TA, & #JodiArias. Juan objects, & loses.

@WildAboutTrial
Geff & Willmont tag team read a sappy email where #JodiArias says to TA that The Hughes were trying to tear them apart.

@yihyun_jeong
Geffner says it’s important info for 4 him bc the Hughes aren’t #JodiAriasfriend but #TravisAlexander. Powerful bc they have no obligation

@william_pitts

@SKrafftFox10
Dr. Geffner: Travis Alexander told #jodiarias oral and anal sex did not violate Mormon tenets against premarital sex.

@william_pitts

@WildAboutTrial
Geff says TA is controlling bc he called #JodiArias & convinced her to leave a baseball game w/a gf to take him out for his bday.

@WildAboutTrial
7/14 #JodiArias Excited to see him. 7/25 Uncertain. Geff says this is the analogy of the brain vs. the heart. Her emotions being yo-yo’d

@WildAboutTrial
8/13/07 – #JodiArias says she is suspicious of TA when he is kind to her. She says she feels broken. He texted her to see how her day was.

@CarolynSungCNN
#jodiarias writes in her jounal, “I’m on verge of pushing him (TA) out of my life.”

@WildAboutTrial
I believe we’re in September or October of 2007 – #JodiArias’ entry is so unusually detailed re a day spent with TA. Hiding from Deanna.

@WildAboutTrial
Wrong, it was 8/19 they spent 16hrs together & hid from Deanna

@WildAboutTrial
Jennifer was talking about two other cases and she and Geff point out that nothing negative was said about him

@william_pitts
Geffner says appellate court judge found no problems with his testimony.

@william_pitts
Geffner’s explaining his affidavit in one case was flawed because he didn’t have time and wasn’t given accurate info. Court ruled it out.

@WildAboutTrial
ex 791 is up on the monitors showing the end of oct 2007 where a 2nd physical abuse incident happened

@SKrafftFox10
#jodiarias describes TA visiting her while her roommates were asleep, says:”He brought me a treat. I gave him a treat. It was a fair trade.”

@SKrafftFox10
#jodiarias journal statements fluctuate wildly between optimistic views of Travis and then bleak accounts of a relationship going nowhere.

@william_pitts
Wilmott’s reading from the journal…lots of stuff about arguing with#TravisAlexander and reading the bible

@SKrafftFox10
#jodiarias says in journal: “writing things down helps me process complicated, emotionally wrenching situations.”

@william_pitts
#JodiArias lives by the Laws of Attraction…whatever that is. Apparently it means not writing down negative things.

@WildAboutTrial
Now moving on to Nov. 6 2007 journal entry. #JodiArias is talking about not being able to accept TA as her husband.

@CarolynSungCNN

@william_pitts
“I feel like a freaking wizard right now! And I owe it all to my loving Father in Heaven.”

@william_pitts
#JodiArias writes she has a massive headache. Geffner says that’s because she’s internalizing her problems.

@WildAboutTrial

@maryellenabc15
Geffner says #JodiArias talks about Cuddling is more what she wants, but sex is more what #TravisAlexander wants & that sets her back

@maryellenabc15
Dr. Geffner says #JodiArias making gift for #TravisAlexander grandmother even though she can’t meet her sets off depression

@maryellenabc15
#JodiArias writes in journal that she called former boyfriend Matt and he tells her she needs to be medicated.

@SKrafftFox10
Friend Matt told Jodi he thought she should be medicated, but she wanted natural cure for her feelings of loneliness and despair.

@CarolynSungCNN
Back from break, back to #jodiarias journal entries: Jodi writes she doesn’t want presents for christmas, she just wants to be happy.

@yihyun_jeong
Geffner says according to #JodiArias, #TravisAlexander cried and admitted to being attracted to children

@yihyun_jeong
Conversation becomes an argument that leads to abuse. #JodiArias says he “body slammed” her & kicked her. Her finger is broken as a result

@yihyun_jeong
#TravisAlexander apologize and helps her finger. No medical attention sought, no reports of abuse to anyone, Geffner says

@william_pitts

@mikewatkiss3tv
Geffner tells jurors that soon after there was a second incident of physical abuse where TA allegedly “body slams” #jodiarias

@yihyun_jeong
#JodiArias returns to journal and writes, “nothing to report.”

@william_pitts
Wilmott claims that’s because she never wrote negative things

@yihyun_jeong
Willmott gets Geffner to say pattern of diff in journal and events bc trying to stay positive. Several objections from Martinez

@CarolynSungCNN
Geffner says #jodiarias was gradually making a break from TA, especially at the intellectual level, as she found about his infidelities.

@yihyun_jeong
#JodiArias writes in journal that she was “squeezed dry” by#TravisAlexander because she had drained her bank account for him

@yihyun_jeong
#JodiArias writes that she continues to give TA money for his mortgage. She writes that she is concerned for him bc he is stressed

@yihyun_jeong
Geffner says this is a point where #JodiArias breaks her rule of writing only positive. But she focuses on TA’s need and health, he says.

@yihyun_jeong
The progress #JodiArias made has been reversed as she is “sucked back in,” Geffner says. He says the emotions overtook intellect

@william_pitts
Geffner talking about a cycle of fighting, money, getting back together, happy, sad, repeat.
