    To my fellow mental oddities: I find it

    difficult at times to understand why things are funny. Most things that are "funny" I consider either ridiculous or odd. I find few things genuinely humorous. Is this a shared trait?

    Something I find extremely idiotic is

    when people say "my other half". Oh, so you require another person to justify your existence? Are you really so insecure that you value someone else as being half of who you are? How pathetic.

    Grandparents going away

    for a week or so and leaving their dog behind 'in my care'. I would say 'my grandparents' yet I feel no ownership of them or need to claim them as family. They leave tomorrow afternoon. I really despise this dog. I am not a dog-liking individual on a good day, and little dumb...

    I faltered for just a moment.

    I fell back on my promise to stay centered on myself alone. Only for a moment.. I'm disgusted with my weakness in that aspect. Remnants of a childhood fantasy held over to adulthood, the innocence of it having been lost many years ago. What's left is confusing me. I'm putting...

    No, not really. Or maybe.

    One thing that really interests me in social interactions, is the emotional conviction with which a person can deliver their arguments. I don't talk about the emotions that arise when, say, you talk to someone who deliberately misinterprets what you say, or dismisses your...

    I Thought I Was A Sociopath

    For many years I refused to believe

    or even accept that I was a psychopath, as I'm a twice diagnosed one. I still have a hard time accepting it, mainly because I feel that being a psychopath or a sociopath is having a flaw, and I can't accept that. I don't have any flaws. Not even the person 'closest' to me could...

    I was wondering how many of you are into BDSM?

    Or are at least active in the scene? It's quite obvious that these things overlap and share traits. What sadist doesn't like power? Same goes for the sociopath. I'm interested in hearing your opinion and thoughts on this. Why do think sociopaths are into this. Why are/aren't...

    I am a sociopath, diagnosed by a

    psychotherapist. I figure out everyone and I am very observant. I do not hide who I am to everyone, those that do know, do not hide from me. They still love me and gravitate to me. They trust me, they don't know the games I play with them.

    Who Believes the Self-confessed Sociopath?

    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 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 do not make excuses

    for what I do. Being a sociopath does not mean I can not be held accountable for my choices. It means I don't care enough to stop myself. Yes I have impulses for twisted games but I am perfectly capable of controlling myself and my impulses. In my opinion, for myself, you cannot...

    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...
