I've got his idea that I might have some sociopathic tendencies.........


I used to cut off the heads of bullants when I was younger and pretend I was an evil dicator.

When I used to see an animal suffering like a bird that flew into a window, instead of helping it I feel like watching it suffer or will torture it to death. If I see a cat with a hurt bird I get great pleasure seeing the bird ripped to pieces.

I often swurve out of the way to try and hit birds on the road for some sick, peverted reason.

If I see someone get hurt, like drop something on their foot, I take pleasure in it and love watching them suffer, including people from my family.

I am one of those people who will try to get someone to like me by cracking jokes and being superficial but wont actually care about them and wont want to hear about their problems or weekend or anything. I just want to use them so that I wont feel like such a loner.

I have no real interest in relationships and forming emotional connections. Infact I have no emotional connection to anyone, including my family simply because I cannot form one.

My emotions are fleeting and shallow and I cannot appreciate any form of art.

Many times I get the urge to hurt vulnerable people. Like if I saw someone looking over the edge of a cliff, I would get the urge to push them off or try to bump them off and pretend it was an accident. If I see a little kid running around I feel like tripping the kid over just so it can get hurt.

I can't remember feeling guilty for anything bad that I have done. When I was younger I used to throw rocks and use a slingshot to smash other people's windows and even though I got belted I just went back and done it.

When I get caught for doing something bad I will fake my regret and shame to the person's face but won't feel a thing and won't even care what they are telling me.

I can steal from and lie to people with no problems of guilt or anxiety, depending on how much I think the person believes me.

Sociopath is too broad of a term...and I don't like to diagnose people online or give them any indication of what that might be. Though if you feel like that you may be a sociopath or want to discover something about yourself, seek a medical professional. Hell if there's a university close by with a psychological clinic, it's cheaper to go there just to get some input on it.

Yes, you are. But instead of killing people, I suggest channelling that into a pursuit of success in a business or any other kind of career. If that makes you happy. If you feel happiness?

I don't like the sound of this. The only thing that trips me up is the fact that social anxiety is almost non-existant in full-fledged sociopaths. Schardenfraude

Do you feel any empathy at all for anyone else for anything? ie this:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...d-daughter-24-years-repeatedly-raped-her.html

Psychopaths cannot feel any empathy for anyone else, no matter what. Ie if your family where brutally murdered in the worst way possible, you would not care or feel sad at all.

This guy explains it well, since he is one:


Does this sound like you?

I would not jump to conclusions here, but you have serious problems. Psychopaths are not usually violent, at least according to the documentary I saw... They also usually do not know they are psychopaths.

He said sociopath, not psychopath.

If my family was murdered in a horrible way I would just feel emotionally numb and would not cry. Its like I wouldn't understand emotionally what had happened, sort of like a child watching porn but looking like he doesn't understand what is going on. And I have to say that reading that story on that guy who locked up that woman, I can honestly say I don'[t feel a thing for her and don't even feel any anger towards the guy. Its like I don't even care, i feel no sympathy and don't even understand the suffering she went through or how horrible that guy is. You could sit down and explain it to me, but I just wouldn't get it.

stop hurting animals. even though you feel nothing for them. Just don't do it. Please.
I did that when I was a teenager and don't do it anymore because I don't like doing it.... I have never hit a bird by the way with my car.

oh ok. so you say you don't like doing it? That's one positive thing even if you were a sociopath or had those tendencies.

i think having these thoughts and acting on them are two totally different things.
maybe you could mention this to a doctor.. what your thoughts are like. They would be able to tell you if you are a sociopath or not...

Edit: Had to edit that before mods read it and i get banned for suggesting a hitman career.

You might be sociopath. The animal thing is kind of weird but come on who don't get pleasure out of seeing someone getting hurt or even killed occasionally? lol

hurting animals as a child could indicate you MAY have been sexually abused.

Could you not imagine yourself in other situations?

For example, the girl who was locked up: Could you imagine yourself in her position?

Is it that you simply cannot imagine the situation, or that even when you imagine, you don't consider a bad thing even it was happening to you?

I'd assume it's the imagination part...

You say you talk to people so you don't feel like a loner - This means you do have emotions.

If you saw someone who looked lonely, could you identify with him/her? Would that emotion you feel when you are lonely come up at all???

I do think you have some sociopath in you but I can't diagnose you over the internet. If it makes you feel less weird, I have some sociopath tendencies as well. I've started not caring about anyone's feelings and if I hear about a kid being abused and murdered or a girl getting raped, I kind of laugh and say she deserved it...

Sometimes I feel this way too. :roll
