Can you identify a sociopath?

1. Sociopaths usually betray no remorse for their actions, and never admit that they are wrong. They will talk around an issue, and make you think you are how somehow responsible for the wrongs in their life, even if you’ve had very little contact with them. They really know how to play the ‘pity card.’

2. Sociopaths manipulate family, friends and lovers to get what they want. If they see no value in a relationship, or they aren’t able to dominate it, they will discard that relationship, or try to destroy the other person, usually through manipulative means. People are ‘things’ to them, to be deceived for their own personal gain, and hurt for their amusement.

3. Sociopaths are great narcissists, and have a grand sense of entitlement. If they brag about how clever and beautiful they are, yet shallow, that’s a good sign you’re dealing with one.

4. Insincere charm and feigned interest are a sociopath’s greatest weapons. This is how they disguise their lack of empathy, garner sympathy, toy with the emotions of others, and get what they want.

5. A person who is sociopath will have very shallow emotions, but he or she will probably have learned how to disguise this fact with disingenuous charm. Lots of empty compliments that don’t come from the heart (empathy is not a sociopath’s forte), indicate you might be in the company of a sociopath.

6. People who are afflicted with this social disorder are incapable of feeling love, but they might be good at faking it for a while.

7. Men and women with parasitic lifestyles, who are unable to learn from past experiences and mistakes, and thus develop a greater conscience and more empathy for others, are most likely sociopaths.

8. People of this ilk are often contemptuous of those who try to help and understand them, and where they’re coming from.

9 Sociopaths enjoy situations where their authoritarian tendencies are accepted. They like to be in a position of power, especially power over people who can’t effectively challenge
