I Am a Sociopath

    I want advice. I don't know

    if I'm a sociopath or not. I seem to meet the criteria but I don't quite understand. I have been an extremely manipulative person ever since my first days of nursery. Manipulation was an instinct that seemed to be triggered by an impulse. I see people on here talk so...

    I Am A Sociopath. If You Have Questions. Now Is The Time.

    I am not your typical sociopath. Serial killer, unable to make friends, etc. I did have trouble making friends when I was young. But i soon learned what everyone was looking for. I am able to fake emotions and actions I pick up from different people I knw. Once I knew what worked...

    Statement.

    "You have wronged innocent people for no good reason." I find this statement rather entertaining. "Innocent" and "wronged" are more subjective words. I thought society didn't consider it 'wrong' to put someone who is bothering you into their place? I don't wake up in the morning...

    Right Or Wrong?

    In my lifetime of being a sociopath I have opened up to 3 people about it. 1. My longtime confidant and "best friend" 2. Another sociopath. 3. My girlfriend. Each time omitting the second one, It was met with disdain or disgust. They accepted me, but accepted me as if I had a...

    I think a lot of people are sociopaths simply

    because they see the world for what it is, like too intellegent for their own good. I don't think it's always because of a tramatic experence.

    I don't believe half the people who claim to be sociopaths. I will admit that all who claim that (especially using their real identities) are certainly screwed up individuals. Why should you believe me that I am? Who cares? Just read. The labels really don't matter. Narcissist...

    I can't trust people.

    So I manipulate them before they get to me. I feel that the whole world is against me. Call me paranoid or cynical. I just feel the need to attack or control before it becomes me. I am very aggressive and threatening hence the name heavy handed. It's lazy, but it works with my...

    when I was 15, which was surprising considering that I lived in Nunavut at that time. I grew up with my dad and my grandma who I generally call my mom since she is. My birth mother, Ameilia, was a drug attic and loved her drugs more than me. She was 13 years old when she had me...
