I Am A Functioning Psychopath

    I get this great pleasure from making women

    insecure. Last week, this girl told me she had a crush on a guy I stated I found very attractive. She said it in a condescending way which exuded confidence. Her: "I'm even friends with all his friends. I can just go and talk to them whenever I want" Me: "Oh really? So why...

    Sup guys, my first post.

    I've come to realise in a psychopath and was wondering if some of you who may be like me could verify this. I'd like to start with saying i believe in God and ALWAYS doing the right thing and that is a rule i live by. However...i never ever feel guilt at the idea and few...

    I have always wanted to talk to someone

    who has been diagnosed and lives with the full blown un knowing fact that they are a Psychopath. I believe that they may be some of the most intellectual people to have conversations with as well as have an immensely interesting perception. If you are one of these people and...

    I really wish the difference between sociopathy

    and psychopathy was upheld. Anyway, psychopathy is not something you can alter. You know you are different. Am I a diagnosed psychopath? No. Have I read alot on this subject v. autism or even asbergers? Yes. (Un?)fortunately I believe I qualify for the big bad wolf. I have...

    Anyone else on medication from a psychiatrist?

    Ran out a week ago and I couldn't get a hold of my doctor until today. I get this buzzing in the back of my mind, like a tv channel that isn't clear or has some interference. There's also a restless energy that keeps building and I feel the pressure in my head increasing. It's...

    What I am about to declare will be more

    than frustrating to most of the members around here. Psychologically speaking, psychopaths are weak. You read right. The power we seek to obtain, this hunger for control, is pure weakness. Earlier in our lives, we lost this control. We couldn't achieve what was on our mind. We...

    Great Job, You Guys.

    I like to consider the functioning psychopath the truly intelligent psychopath. You and I understand that society is a sandbox, and if you're not in it (or at least nearby), you can't play with it. Of course, we all know how much fun a manipulative life can be. So, bravo for...

    Thinking about being totally honest with my

    girlfriend about how I am. Two possibilities: First she runs away in fright, good less drama for me and an opportunity to find someone more of an asset. or Second, She thinks it's ok and I can use it as leverage if she doesn't like somethings I do or say. Thoughts?

    The Hollow Shell

    not much goes on inside, not much movement at all. emotional spectrum is so small, boredom, frustration, and on occasion, anger. but on the whole, I move through each day, without feeling. When I get mad, I am furious. like lightening it can strike, then be gone just as quick...

    Phrases said by psychopaths: "we're soul

    mates" "I feel like we've known eachother our whole lives" "life's short" "I always say what I think regardless of it being inappropriate" "people need to be themselves" "I'm a very calm person" "to be honest" any others anyone can think of? They're like catch phrases.

    People fail to see the capabilities of a

    Reluctant Psychopath - I'm Batman

    Batman? Not really. But it's kind of like that, the prospect of telling my story anonymously to other similar people, things that I've kept inside all my life (for the most part). In the past, when I researched Psychopathy to learn more about this 'grey area' in the psychological...

    Question for psychopaths

    There had been speculations concerning the true

    definition of a psychopath, and another for sociopath. Clearly, there is a difference, but the matter of the subject isn't quite clear yet. A logical differentiation of the two terms reveals that psychopaths are more calculating and reserved. If one commits a crime, he'll plan...

    The urges have come back.

    I do not find peace of mind in sleep anymore. I can't sleep. The irony is that I'm analytical, logical. And yet, the source behind these urges remain unknown to me. I need to crack bones. Snap a neck. Kill. Why? No idea. I just do. This is getting out of control!
