    Is My Ex A Sociopath?

    I wanted to be a shrink once. I'm going to channel my work 'self' momentarily and give all of you questioners some advice. So, is your ex a sociopath? Here's the answer: it doesn't matter. The fact that you have been led to this line of questioning about someone else's behavior...

    Surreal(1)

    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...

    Quote of the day from Dexter: Human bonds

    always lead to messy complications. Commitment. Sharing. Driving people to the airport.

    Patient.

    Come into your room. I need to take your vitals. You look funny. Sweaty. [Haha.] I hover over you, your eyes aren't focusing. I ask if you are alright, over and over. [Nope.] You won't answer, but you grip my hand [gloved, so I allow it]. [This gesture is rather futile.] I tell...

    Being Reborn.

    Hello. I am a sociopath. I have known this for a long time, though I had forgotten. I found/find it difficult to cope with sometimes. I hold all of the pros and cons of this fact in my head. I am different. This is good because it means that I am special. I have the potential to...

    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...

    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...

    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 have a sort of question.

    . I have never been in a successful long term relationship, mostly due to the fact that I'm very uninterested in sex, once I've gotten to that place I feel as thought the chase is over. I spend most of the time looking at the ceiling until they I'm "done" or counting the moments...

    I would like to know what everyone here thinks.

    Just for debate purposes. Is sociopathy something we are born with? Or can it develop through outside elements?

    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...

    Nationalism. So been thinking about the concept,

    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.

    I believe I'm a sociopath.

    All of my serious long term relationships (including friendships) have failed, simply because I get bored of people after being around them for a while. Most people know I'm a very blunt individual, but when I'm with the right people, I'm downright harsh. I don't feel sorry for...
