This is what I got, I don't agree on the charming bit though.

You Are 28% Sociopath
From time to time, you may be a bit troubled and a bit too charming for your own good.
It's likely that you're not a sociopath... just quite smart and a bit out of the mainstream!

I got 12 %.
I dealt with these people it's why I have left a lot of jobs quickly.
I won't tolerate it...and I can sniff them out like a Basset Hound!
Problem is I am a magnet for them too.

I myself have been diagnosed as a psychopath (but nowadays they call it Antisocial Personality Disorder) though I only scored 72% on your test (but I hit all the DSM-4 criteria, you bet) and I have a few more helpful points you have not yet brought out.

Psychopaths tend to know that they are psychopaths (unless barnyard stupid or raised by wolves), they are aware of their diagnosis, and they know which of their characteristics are the psychopathic ones. Instead of being embarrassed or saddened by being psychopaths, like you would imagine a normal person feeling in such circumstances, they tend to feel more or less overtly proud of it, as if it conferred some (at least slight) honor or distinction - but that doesn't mean they will volunteer this information to you if it is against their interest.

Psychopaths think that the difference between themselves and other people is that psychopaths are clear-sighted, insightful, free and brave...whereas normal people worry too much about the things that others have told them are important, and never find out how to see themselves clearly and do what they actually want.

Psychopaths think that only they really know how to have a good time.

The only person a psychopath is likely to really think is fun for long, or to want to learn from for long, or to actually admire significantly, is another psychopath. Normal people are soggy and hard to light.

Psychopaths are overly proud of themselves even if they seem not to have accomplished anything, because they tell themselves "Nobody else could do what I have done"(which is usually true, they have generally performed many amazing and perversely difficult tricks on the way to getting nowhere after losing interest) and particularly because (this is true by definition) they can say of themselves "I always did exactly what I wanted to"/"I never did anything if I didn't want to"/"Nobody tells me what to do"/"I can do any god-damn thing I want" et cetera along those lines...that right there is the psychopathic principle, like "To thine own self be true" or "Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven", "Nothing is true, everything is permitted" and I could multiply similar proverbs to the same effect.

Hopefully these observations are to the point...I would also point out that the OP tends to depict psychopaths crushing or burning victims, ones like that are kind of a heavy touch, one-trick, low-functioners...Psychopaths don't need to be parasitic or dependent, they can be as self-reliant as anybody while still displaying their typical flagrant disregard...I mean, if you had permission to do anything/whatever you wanted, not everybody would want to cause others to do things for them/take care of them, for any length of time...a psychopath can also just want to keep moving, learn something new, take care of themselves and see what happens next...Ones like that just don't cause so much comment...



So...do you agree....do you think you are a psychopath,,,,,a sociopath? I am curious.....

We have been talking about that very issue in this thread,

Which is what led me to search out and resurrect this one.

I had interractions with what were definetely --- psycho or socio paths. As I have told about in other threads on this topic. All of them were GLIB, omg, yes. No matter what was being broached. Charming, SURE. I would watch one in particular, turn on like a light switch, this charm, to other people which he had to, like a media or visiting person/stranger. They're -ace- good at that. Highly (mentally/intellectually) intelligent. Nazi cold. Soulless. Make sure to note this particular puppy, especially. Nothing --- is ever their fault, IT IS YOU, and, "How could you do that to me???" After you scraped and grovelled and self blamed and excuse'd and apologized for your ('transgression') against him.

Back throughout the early '90's, this one would always call me at night and not say anything. (Long story as to how I knew for sure, with the old technology landline system.)

I cant stand people like that. Im almost like an "anti sociopath" in that they really arent drawn to me, I see them coming and they know I see them coming, and they rarely ever try to charm me. Although I have had them use their charm to make sure the group turns on me or distrusts me and not them. That way when I point out what they are doing I just get looked at as if I am a trouble maker, or "jealous" or some such when in fact, I am not. Im just pointing out what they are doing. Factually.

I always wonder how people can fall for them. I dont find them that sneaky, but maybe thats just because they dont try to be with me. They know Im not buying and so they dont hide the nasty. In fact I have had some in my life flat out brag, "im going to do this and this and this and you cant stop me." And sadly, they are often right.

Your post answers easily, how in-turn easily it is for them to reach high positions over many people and their finances. A lot of people just LOVE, are ENTHRALLED with these types. Unnnnnfortunately, many of them are stereotypically attractive, healthy, tall, good physical ----- genes. That has been my experience. All the ones I knew were like that.

Another simple truth is that people really do like sweet lies over bitter truths any day of the week. Its the reason I chose my signature. Im a crappy candy maker. I am honest as the day is long, but I have no skill at all at sweetening it up in order to sell it.

And, for the record, I am tall, moderately above average looking, athletic, intelligent, etc. None of that helps me one little bit when I am pegged against a sociopath in terms of winning the group. Especially in situations where words not actions speak most loudly, like on the internet. In real life, I do much better. Because I actually WILL show up to help you move, or take you to the hospital in the middle of the night, or stand between you and the person trying to hit you. But on a board? None of that matters.

Its all about sweet, sweet lies, ego flattery, charm, and the gift of gab. Its a shame. But its why propaganda works so well. People want to be told what they want to believe and anyone who will do that has them.

The good news is that you're devastatingly charming.
The bad news? You mostly use those charms for evil!

Hmmmmm

You're empathetic, loyal, and introspective.
In other words, there's no way you're a sociopath... but you can spot one pretty easily!

I wish you'd change your avatar pic, it --- frightens --- me!!! Ever since I watched 'A Clockwork Orange' all those decades ago, I have PTSD from those rapist guys, even though they got tortured in the end, by the British government.
"How could you do this to me?!"

The test is not for you, it is for someone you have to deal with, it is about not taking a toxic person for granted and their atrocious behavior as "normal"

If you are a good person you will meet many evil people in your life, you need to recognize them and their actions. More importantly you need to recognize which evil behaviors you have been conned into excepting as reasonable and to reject those behaviors - both in yourself and in others - as unacceptable.


Try again - it works for me


Thankyou for starting this thread HulaAnglers , I watched the vid and it was interesting.

The test was interesting as well, though I think the attributes posted a little further down were closer to finding the real truth. I Know of many people who have been unfaithful (for whatever reasons),and may lie to get their way,but when it comes to actually hurting someone,physically ,and or scamming them, they wouldn't feel good about it, and would decline to do so.

I also unfortunately have known some who have scammed,cheated and lied their way out of way too much.

Your post makes me much more aware of what type of people I need to avoid , and how I can improve on some traits I have that I really don't care for.

great thread !!!!
