Note that the checklist is only half of the diagnosis--an interview is the second half, and this is just for kicks and giggles. Don't take this as a serious diagnosis.
Each of the twenty items is given a score of 0, 1, or 2 based on how well it applies to the subject being tested.
IMPORTANT PART------*Because an individual's score can have important consequences for his or her future, Hare argues that the test should only be considered valid if administered by a suitably qualified and experienced clinician under scientifically controlled and licensed, standardized conditions.* Meaning, not here.
• glib and superficial charm
• grandiose (exaggeratedly high) estimation of self
• need for stimulation
• pathological lying
• cunning and manipulativeness
• lack of remorse or guilt
• shallow affect (superficial emotional responsiveness)
• callousness and lack of empathy
• parasitic lifestyle
• poor behavioral controls
• sexual promiscuity
• early behavior problems
• lack of realistic long-term goals
• failure to accept responsibility for own actions
• many short-term marital relationships
• juvenile delinquency
• revocation of conditional release
• criminal versatility
A prototypical psychopath would receive a maximum score of 40, while someone with absolutely no psychopathic traits or tendencies would receive a score of zero.
A score of 30 or above qualifies a person for a diagnosis of psychopathy.
People with no criminal backgrounds normally score around 5. Many non-psychopathic criminal offenders score around 22.
My score is 10. >.> Possibly up to 15, though I don't personally think so.

28. The thing about non psychopathic criminals is probably true. I'm not a criminal exactly, but I've commited crimes and served my punishments for those- I was above 22 and also think many that applied to me also apply to others I know.1
