#1) Sociopaths are charming. Sociopaths have high charisma and tend to attract a following just because people want to be around them. They have a “glow” about them that attracts people who typically seek guidance or direction. They often appear to be sexy or have a strong sexual attraction. Not all sexy people are sociopaths, obviously, but watch out for over-the-top sexual appetites and weird fetishes.
♦ I am the FURTHEST thing from “charming”, nor do I have a whole lot of charisma. I’m naturally a nice person. But charming? Not in the slightest. And I don’t have any weird sexual or over-the-top sexual fetishes or appetites.
#2) Sociopaths are more spontaneous and intense than other people. They tend to do bizarre, sometimes erratic things that most regular people wouldn’t do. They are unbound by normal social contracts. Their behavior often seems irrational or extremely risky.
♦ Spontaneity gives me anxiety. Enough said.
#3) Sociopaths are incapable of feeling shame, guilt or remorse. Their brains simply lack the circuitry to process such emotions. This allows them to betray people, threaten people or harm people without giving it a second thought. They pursue any action that serves their own self interest even if it seriously harms others. This is why you will find many very “successful” sociopaths in high levels of government, in any nation.
♦ I feel a lot of shame, guilt, and remorse when the situation calls for it. I have a clear grasp and understanding of what is wrong and what is right. I’d like to think I have a strong moral compass. I would never physically harm somebody unless it was me fighting for my own life. I most certainly would never threaten another human being or animal. That shit’s illegal.
#4) Sociopaths invent outrageous lies about their experiences. They wildly exaggerate things to the point of absurdity, but when they describe it to you in a storytelling format, for some reason it sounds believable at the time.
♦ This one just makes me laugh, I don’t need to tell outrageous or extravagant lies about my life. It’s boring as fuck. End of story.
#5) Sociopaths seek to dominate others and “win” at all costs. They hate to lose any argument or fight and will viciously defend their web of lies, even to the point of logical absurdity.
♦ While I am a competitive person, I know when I have lost. I graciously accept all defeated arguments and move on with my life.
#6) Sociopaths tend to be highly intelligent, but they use their brainpower to deceive others rather than empower them. Their high IQs often makes them dangerous. This is why many of the best-known serial killers who successfully evaded law enforcement were sociopaths.
♦ I am quite an intelligent person, but I obviously use it for good because I am a Jedi. I have an average IQ at best.
#7) Sociopaths are incapable of love and are entirely self-serving. They may feign love or compassion in order to get what they want, but they don’t actually FEEL love in the way that you or I do.
♦ I love fiercely, I love passionately. I know what love feels like; I know what falling in love feels like. And I have a firm grasp of the entire concept of love. I am, after all, getting married.
#8) Sociopaths speak poetically. They are master wordsmiths, able to deliver a running “stream of consciousness” monologue that is both intriguing and hypnotic. They are expert storytellers and even poets.
♦ LOL, poetically? I use big words that I ACTUALLY know the definition to, doesn’t classify me as being poetic. Being an English student, I am quite a wordsmith – not a “master wordsmith” and most people end up getting bored of hearing me talk.
#9) Sociopaths never apologize. They are never wrong. They never feel guilt. They can never apologize. Even if shown proof that they were wrong, they will refuse to apologize and instead go on the attack.
♦ Jesus, I apologize WAAY too much. If somebody shows me I’m wrong, I’ll shake their hand to it.
#10) Sociopaths are delusional and literally believe that what they say becomes truth merely because they say it! Charles Manson, the sociopathic murderer, is famous for saying, “I’ve never killed anyone! I don’t need to kill anyone! I THINK it! I have it HERE! (Pointing to his temple.) I don’t need to live in this physical realm…”
♦ As far as I know I’m not delusional, and I don’t try to falsify any truths in my life. I admit to all of my faults and shortcomings. I really have no reason to convince people otherwise.
Just incase anyone needed a refresher on the definition of a “Class A Sociopath.”
