Why Are People Afraid Of Sociopaths?I've just noticed a lot of the time that whenever I happen to honestly explain something about myself, people tend to get frightened. And I'll be honest, I don't know why. I'm not really claiming to be a "true" sociopath, but I share certain traits (need for violence, lots of manipulation of others, etc).
So what's there to fear? And aside from that, why is there the hatred or disgust? I understand (somewhat) being afraid for safety reasons, but what could cause such a response that merits disgust?
