    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...

    Misunderstood Monster

    Does this world disgust you as much as it does me? Not only the world but the humans that have ruined it. This world with sheep that leap to an endless sleep afraid of the dark where evil will creep but all they do is get melted by light burning them a beautiful sight. They dont...

    Social interactions with the non ASPD can be

    so annoying at times. All that maintenance, all that foreplay chit-chat before getting to the point ... GAWD!!!! Of course to be able to get regularly the info I need on some subject I cannot just directly and bluntly ask .... I have first to inquire of the day, mood and all...

    I have no empathy whatsoever

    for other human beings. I can honestly say that 99% of people I know could fall dead next to me and I would step over their bodies without a second thought. I use people to accomplish my own ends. I steal and lie pathologically and manipulate everyone around me. The scary part...

    I always remember moments in my past

    that remind me of the person I am. I remember my mom took me to "bring your kid to work day" at her job. I was in the 3rd grade. I remember not talking to anyone,kids thinking i was weird. If only I could go back in time and tell myself that it would be ok, that the rejection...

    and want to share my experience. I always knew I was different to the other kids at school. I just didn't get why they all cared so much. As I grew up I began notice just how stupid and boring everyone else really was. I did and still do get in trouble a lot at school. Always...

    At times I wonder that people expect too much

    of me. Which is a good thing probably. When I was a delinquent in my teenage years, I knew that I wasn't the classic bad boy. I knew I was different. And now when I act all classy and polite I know for sure that I'm not really that gentle. My whole life has been a sub conscious...

    I wish I wasn't. It'd be nice to degrade into

    an emotional sack of hormones wouldn't it? I love to manipulate the weak minded at the tip of my finger. Doing everything I say because they're "in love" with me. I sometimes wish I could feel this emotion that they're constantly telling me they're feeling about me. Some people...

    Ever since I can remember,

    I don't lose my patience often. When I do, its abrupt,sudden, a seminal spurt of passion. The affable thing is I can't hold grudges. This flusters me; some people need a pencil sticking out their eye, their tongues stapled. I'm always fragmenting my actions. Perhaps, this arises...

    I Am A Sociopath - A Coming Out Story.

    Coming out as a sociopath can be akin to coming out as gay to a family full of hard core Christians. There is a lot of stigma attached to being a sociopath. So why do it? As a sociopath you would think I would be more about self preservation. Well this in a sense is self...

    For those that hate Sociopaths.

    Stop. We hate and destroy you because you are the light that was destroyed in us by the Parental Units and DNA. Using you has nothing to do with you! It has to do with our projective hate of what we lost in our youth. Move on. We love pain and you are the mirror that we love to...

    It's rather irritating

    when people think "sociopath" is a simile for "murderer". It's perhaps even more irritating that everyone assumes that sociopaths cannot feel. From my experience, the feeling is far more shallow than everyone else describes but it's there nonetheless. I don't "get" empathy...

    As a genuine sociopath I was seemingly born

    without the emotional capacity of a normal person. I have a wife and 2 kids and still have never felt what others call love. My wife understands that it's not that I don't want to show I care I just dont understand how to care.
