The feeling I get from the OP is simple pure enjoyment.

If not, then that means you are actually reasoning to a point of emotions, trying to figure some emotional problems you have.

so I see it as you either want to sit back and enjoy a hundred and one people try to figure you out or you really want to gain something 'useful' from this and thus destroy your 'psychopathy'.

And I just bit

I do have a question for you: why did you post this thread? What did you get out of it?

You go on about how you have little need of others, but then the whole purpose of this thread is seemingly to validate yourself by others.

Everything in this thread points to you not being a psychopath, but an attention seeker and a liar. Maybe you actually believe it, I don't know, but you really should get a second opinion.

You haven't committed any crimes? Why not? What's stopped you? There are doubtless many opportunities where you could have profited from others by committing a crime, with little chance of getting caught. So why didn't you? It seems to me that there would be nothing stopping an actual psychopath from committing petty crimes anytime the opportunity presented itself. There is no reason to earn an 'honest living' if you truly don't care what others think. Physchopathy is also characterized by a lack of impulse control,ado you shouldn't have the need to be reserved in any situation.

The point is, I've known people who were diagnosed with multiple disorders, depressions anxiety, bipolar, etc, over the course of several years. It all depends on your frame of mind during the diagnosis. I have a feeling you either know you are not a physchopath and are just seeking attention, or you incorrectly believe you are a psychopath and it has influenced how you think you are 'supposed' to act, but either way you should see another mental health professional.

Psychopaths lack empathy by nature. They aren't bad people, but they tend to do bad things.

Its mostly up to circumstance.

I sampled some of your older posts, I they seem to be in contradiction with your claims of not caring what others think, feeling emotion or remorse, and just being a psychopath in general. Here are a few of your quotes that stood out:

I used to get angry when I saw this kind of crap, now it's just whatever. maybe a meteor will land on one of their rallies. That would be interesting.

You don't just become a pyschopath. If you used to feel things, but now don't, it's not because you are all of the sudden a psychopath; it's because you've grown apathetic or desensitized to the same crap.

I would have helped him anyway possible, all he had to do was say something, If he didn't want to talk to me there was no shortage of people who would have dropped everything and bent over backward to help him.

This seems like a very selfless thing for a psychopath to do. If you didn't have some empathy for him, or care if he felt differently or not, why would you have bent over backward to help him?

Right now I am getting 6.5 - 7. This is still nothing to get worked up about, I am just keeping people informed that there has been a measurable increase in radiation levels.

I don't suppose informing people of increasing radiation levels would be on a psychopath's list of priorities.

Fair enough, I may have gotten carried away a bit.

And here you are apologizing as you have done a few times already in this thread, to someone you offended.

You are either not as honest as you make yourself out to be, or are clearly not a psychopath, just going through some apathy which we all experience at some point or another. Why are you so quick to believe you are a psychopath? Do you think it makes you different or special in some way you were lacking before?

I got to thinking about the way I was affected by being in the Marine Corps over in Vietnam in 68-69 and how I had to deal with seeing numerous situations that resulted in people being seriously wounded and killed... There was no time to do anything other than doing my job and thinking for a moment how sad the families were going to be and better you than me.. You convince yourself that you have no feelings for others as a means of surviving and years later the oddest stuff will make you crazy mad, depressed, very aggressive or just anxious.. It seemed whenever I had an adverse situation that was hard to deal with I found myself turning off emotions only allowing anger to get me through the situation... I finally spent a total of 6 months over an 18 month period in a PTSD treatment program followed by 3 more on a VA psych unit before I was able to begin showing my feelings to myself and the rest of the world... It takes a long time to let go of what you do to survive in a combat situation but to survive and prosper away from it you have to earn to let it go and deal with the kid that changed into something that he convinced his self is an uncaring person and start feeling again.

Merely by asking yourself if being a psychopath makes you a bad person you're overriding psychopathy. Why would you care or know what to be a bad or good person is?

Completely nonsense.

Things are good when they suit me, bad when they dont. And me Im just me.

If a DOD doc evaluated you, he should have used the PCL-M checklist Here....

So I seriously doubt you are serving in the military. Not to mention you stated that you haven't been incarcerated in over 10 years......No enlist-y with a criminal history-y.......or something that rhymes.

Are you a bad person ? Who knows. Is this a bad post ? Absolutely.

I can tell you right now you are not a psychopath, however much you want to make yourself believe it,

here is a dictionary definition of a psychopath

psychopath |ˈsīkəˌpaθ|

psychopathic |ˌsīkəˈpaθik| |ˈsaɪkəˈpøθɪk| |-ˈpaθɪk| adjective
psychopathically |ˌsīkəˈpaθik(ə)lē| |ˈsaɪkəˈpøθək(ə)li| |-ˈpaθɪk(ə)li| adverb

a person suffering from chronic mental disorder with abnormal or violent social behavior.

if you have a hot temper but is easily suppressed you are not a psychopath!
You just have a bad temper, as i do aswell. But we are not psychopaths because of it.

all psychopaths are different however that is because all humans are different and we are all humans!

if i put you in a room with a real psychopath you would find the back end of your trousers rather wet and lumpy and full of yesterdays corn.

and the same goes for me, if i was put in a sealed room with a real psychopath.

Sounds more like the OP has Asperger's Syndrome, which is characterized primarily by a lack of empathy and social awkwardness.

However, he may also be a chronic liar. Not an uncommon disorder.

The OP makes the claim that he has been diagnosed by the DOD as a Psychopath. He also claims to be serving on Active Duty in the Military. Not only that, he claims to have been serving for 10 years now.

The problem with this is that, if he WERE in the military, he would know that any diagnosed Personality, Conduct or Behavior Disorders would disqualify him from service under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Upon formal diagnosis, he would have received a medical discharge.

The OP also suggests that he had been incarcerated 10 years ago. If he WERE in the military, he would know that this would most likely disqualify him from service as well.

Now if the OP had been treated by a base psychiatrist, there would have been a reason. They don't simply administer a PCL-R test just because you ask for one. Which means, he couldn't have an exemplary service record as he claims.

The OP states that if they were to try and kick him out, he would claim discrimination. But if he WERE in the military, he would know that he could claim whatever he wanted. It wouldn't stop him from getting processed out. You can't sue the military.

The OP claims that it takes 5 years of training someone to replace him. If he WERE in the military, he would know that the longest training cycle in any branch of service is 2 years.

He can also not claim that the test has anything to with PTSD. They have a completely different test for that. The PCL-M they gave me when I was being processed out in 2005.

Anyway, you all have fun. Play nice with the little fella. No biting. I'm outta here.

those people who believe that have obviously never met anyone that hurts or has a negative impact on everyone they encounter without a gram of remorse or empathy. that wouldn't shed a genuine tear or give a toss if their child or parents died and would be pleased instead for the freedom from parenting and the hopefull inheritance from the parents. religion has nothing to do with wether or not there are bad people as there clearly are bad people in this world, religion may help you feel sorry for even these kind of people as they are the same as we a creation of our dna and the inputs from our environment.

I don't believe for a second that you are, your are trying to convince yourself that you are to justify what you have done or been made to do and in that prove you aren't

Fore someone who doesn't have time for people or like people as we are inconsistant etc... you sure have a lot of time for people here. You do suffer but not from what your trying to convice yourself you have. If a psycho went into a doctor and said i think im psycho, the doc would say your stressed but fine go home. If a few of his friends went to a doctor and said i think my mate is psycho and you went in and said what who me, well different story.

No, I feel no remorse. Anyone I have "wronged" allowed themselves to be in that position.

And then anyone who "wrongs" you, brought your anger upon themselves, right?

That's the scary part of psychopathy.

A few of the traits of psychopathy are

Need for Stimulation
Proneness to Boredom
Pathological Lying
Conning and Manipulativeness

But the trait which says either you were misdiagnosed or are being deceitful is this. A true psychopath would not be asking other's opinions of themselves. A true psychopath is very self centered, and it is about what he/she thinks. What others think is not of importance to them.....and being on a website asking other's opinion about themselves is something a true psychopath would find extremely uninteresting. They would be more likely to start a thread to get a rise out of people, or one exalting themselves and boasting, not EXCUSING their behavior, as a psychopath does not consider how their behaviour affects others or what others may think of them.

If you're a psychopath, why don't you get one of those brain studies done and share it with us all? True psychopaths use different parts of the brain than normal people do for thought processes.

If you're not familiar with the research, you could start here: n-on-fmri/

or on home soil:

No questions. I had a psychopathic step father who attempted to murder me after taking out huge insurance policies on my mother and I and forging our signatures. I know far more about psychopaths than most psychologists. I'm unimpressed with it predictable.

Even if your diagnosis is psychopathic, I'd question that. Most of America is on anti-psychotic medication. You might be brainwashed and misinformed. There isn't a pill for that. What kind of meds are you on?
