Just looking for attention is all...I've never known a sociopath that was that self aware enough to even think, let alone ask if they were a sociopath...
I never thought anybody actually WANTED to be a sociopath. I agree that it has become rather romanticized but I think that's just a case of wanting something that you can't have, something unobtainable. Either way, the notion of wanting to be a sociopath is quite senseless.
I've dated a sociopath...they're not good people! Fun at first maybe, but it quickly become nightmare-ish
WTF,, the net has 'romanticizied' being a sociopath ?? IDK bout that,,,seems way extreme for the net or anything,, to cause that ,,,
ah ha,, I see,,, luckily I 'miss' those type of sites,, haha
Yes, i don't think there is anything appealing or "interesting" about being a sociopath or having a mental disorder. I think some people believe it makes them different or more interesting.
Something's not right in their diet.
I've never met anyone who wanted to be a sociopath unless you're talking about a Halloween costume. Its a living hell to want to be able to genuinely care about other people and not be able to. I waged a war with myself to be able to come out of that place and I'm pretty sure that divine intervention is the only reason I gained the ability to be fully human.
i tend to agree with the second part of your question.
