    Sociopath and learned behaviors

    and emotions. If a sociopath learns to fake emotions by watching others, then what about reading about it? For instance, learning about various personality types in-depth, then applying them in social situations. What if an unaware sociopath, searching for who he is after...

    my thoughts. I'm not apart of their world.

    I exist on a different plain that randomly comes in contact. my world is small and enclosed. time barely exists. the sun comes up and the sun goes down. but it's necessary to keep a constant link to the other side. if I don't I will labor fiercely in my delusions and any concept...

    A Pretty Parasite, Or "Of Course I'm a Nice Person, Now Quit Being Such a Nit and Fetch Me Another Drink."

    To preface, I have antisocial personality disorder and borderline personality disorder, and maybe some other stuff, and it makes for an unsettling combination. I have no conscience, no moral code, and no desire for either. My story, if you want to call it that, has to begin at...

    I wouldn't describe myself

    as a total sociopath, but I do exhibit sociopathic tendencies. For example, I often don't care about the opinions of other people, nor of their well being.

    This Is Another Rant.. About You.

    You people are bothering me. I came to this website to enjoy the experiences of my sociopathic kin and instead I am being pestered by the inane ramblings of the imbecilic. There are 844 people in this group. Out of those people there are 3 categories of people. The sociopathsThe...

    From one twisted mind to another.

    What would you do with 2,3trillion dollars? What would you do with such ''unimaginable'' wealth? You can buy any visionaries you choose. Enough money to pay off any corrupt government official. Can get everything under control..

    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.

    morality, empathy, sympathy none can be

    obtained. although I've been successful with conditioning myself to act on doing the "right" thing because of ho others see that as empathetic, and moral. although it can be hard at times to filter your robotic self, like after a long few weeks.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Surely there is a trigger
