Re: Have you come across a person who may be a true psychopath....
I knew 3 psychopaths. I met up with 3 high school friends about 4 months ago. It was 6 years since I last saw them, well the minute I started a conversation with them something felt wrong. Like they weren't being sincere. When we got to the eating table I went to the bathroom and when I came back took a sip of my drink. I started feeling dizzy and I knew these fuckers were trying to drug me. They all decided that they wanted to leave and I didn't say a word just followed them, then when I got outside I started running. One of them started chasing me but I got to the train station and dissapeared. I'm a lucky fucker.

Stay away from suspicious people! They will steal from you and fuck you up! The only true way to know who is a psychopath is to smile and come across as sincere and if they know you are doing that then they will slowly show you who they are and what they're intentions are. Come across as very DUMB and STUPID. They will show their true colors thinking that you don't know shit when you actually do.

Re: Have you come across a person who may be a true psychopath....
Psychopaths generally cannot sustain consistent work by their talents, skills, ingenuity or wits. They fail to conform to social norms with regard to lawful behaviour, performing antisocial acts that are often grounds for arrest (so they continually break rules). Often irritable and aggressive, they often get into physical fights and assaults. They may repeatedly fail to honour financial obligations or plan ahead so move about a lot without a prearranged job or clear goals.They engage in repeated lying (e.g. use of aliases, other people's credit cards and/or identities) and conning of others for personal profit and pleasure. Often have reckless disregard of their own and others' personal safety (e.g. often driving while intoxicated or recurring speeding). As parents or guardians, they lack the ability to function as a responsible parent. Most have never sustained a totally monogamous relationship for more than a year (so have difficulty establish sustainable intimate bonds with other human beings). Totally lacking any kind of remorse, they often hurt, mistreat and steal from others without as much as a sideways glance.

They often appear impulsively angry, hostile, cunning, forceful, risk taking, thrill seeking, hot temper, verbally or physically abusive, avoid "softer" emotions such as warmth and intimacy which they consider weaknesses. Interpersonally they are antagonistic to belligerent considering them "slick" but calculating and highly competitive but poor loosers. Very distrustful of others. Their cognitive style is impulsive, inflexible and externally oriented, hard nosed, realistic and devious where their defense is acting out.

Their feeling style is glib, shallow and superficial. The parental environment was "the end justifies the means". Parental hostility from whom they learn vindictive behaviour. Deficient authority figure in the home, disorganized family and/or subculture system. Temperament is ill-tempered infantile pattern with a low threshold for limbic stimulation and inefficient inhibitory centres. Mesomorphic to endomorphic body types and often residual adult attention deficit disorder (ADD)

Their view of themselves is "I'm cunning and I'm entitled to get what I want". Views themselves as strong, competitive, self-reliant, energetic and tough but display sensitivity to rejection. Their world view is "Life is devious and hostile, and rules keep me from fulfulling my needs, therefore I'll bend or break them because my needs come first and I'll defend any efforts to be controlled or degraded". Dynamics perpetuating the self are a need to be powerful, a fear of being abused/humiliated and unwillingness to cooperate and tendency to provoke others leading to reinforcement of their antisocial style.

If anyone you meet in your travels starts to tick a lot of these characters, RUN AWAY AT A THOUSAND MILES AN HOUR.

Re: Have you come across a person who may be a true psychopath....
What would you do if you did?

This person is would not be an emotional manipulator . His manipulations use all tools, and are hidden.

He may or may not be dangerous at this time. He would be a true psychopath, not made, somehow formed.

He still has a high prestige career, and living the high life, leaving broken lives behind him.

If you were aware and he wasn't yet, could you use his tricks against him?
 Quoting: Aunty Flo



Why yes, I do know of a true psychopath. My 14 year old step son. I tried to get him help for years.....his parents blew off his behavior problems. His older brother is the only other one who figured it out.

psychopaths are slick. It may take years before anyone else figures it out. I wish all the people he comes across in his life, luck, because you're ALL going to need it. He is one sick, nasty human being underneath his skin, and he knows I figured him out. I need to be careful of him when he's older.......
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28864482


I'd be getting my older stepson,he'd probably agree,and myself away from that family before he matures and becomes more dangerous.

I'm psychotic. I just matured with self discipline. I would never kill or harm anyone i didn't mean too.

Like if they wanted to send me to a Fema camp or someone hurt my sisters. Yeah I'll lay the death on them.

But to say run away at a thousand miles per hour is a little much.

If I'm in control of my impulses does that really make me a bad friend?

Chances are a psychopath won't even hurt you, it'll be someone close who loves you anyways.

I used to be a volunteer firefighter until I decided it took up too much time for me to grow. Were not all that bad.

No, when you see a psychopath you realise how 'special' they really are. Damaged little boys and girls going around acting like psychopaths, are not true psychopaths.
 Quoting: Aunty Flo



Glibness and Superficial Charm, Manipulative and Conning
They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible.

Grandiose Sense of Self, they feel entitled to certain things as "their right." Pathological Lying and they have no problem lying coolly and easily. Very convincing and they can even pass lie detectors.

Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt an a deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core.

Shallow Emotions show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.

Incapacity for Love, but needs stimulation and
living on the edge, verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common.

Those are terribly qualities to have to deal within a person. Get out fast before you become a victim. If you are already trapped watch your back. Instead of friends, they have victims an accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.
 Quoting: Merci


This is probably the best description that I have seen so far. I have met two people that were clinically diagnosed as sociopaths (I found out from their parents).

One of them was a male. He was cool, collected and very manipulative. Personally, he seemed like a massive douche to me but my female friends fell over him and worshiped the ground he walked on. He was very cool headed but in private moments, was known to inflict physical damage to his girlfriends, most of which were much smaller and weaker than him.

He is in prison now for stabbing his brother to death in his sleep with a sword. Bastard.

The second... oh god the stories I could tell. She is a woman. She is very promiscuous, very heavy into drugs. She is the kind of person you want to hate, but she has harnessed the power of the intellectual liberal "don't judge me mantra" and can easily talk you into feeling pity for her circumstances.

When she talks to you, when she looks you in the eye, you honestly want to believe that she did not do the horrible things that she did because she is a selfish person that has no conception of the feelings of others, she's just an unfortunate victim of mental illness and addiction. If you trust her, she uses you. This isn't just your ordinary druggie looking for a fix. If you can't be used, she is not interested in you.

She will only apologize if enough people are watching, she will only repent if enough people are watching. I've seen her steal food from the mouths of her siblings to buy bling, ICP merchandise, weed and cigarettes. She is constantly trying to impregnate herself, literally for the sake of pity, protection (her Mom won't turn away her own daughter if that daughter is in possession of her grandchild), and for government checks. This isn't an assumption born of any uber-conservative hatred of welfare recipients. She nukes the government. Fortunately, God has some sense of right and wrong and her fertility is ultimately poor at best. She frequently miscarries if she manages to conceive at all.

It scares me because I know there are many other human beings like this. I know the difference between a sociopath and a troubled human being. I know the difference between a sociopath and a victim of circumstance and if you ever encounter one of these people, run. Don't let your emotions blind you. Just. run.

Wait, is a sociopath a psychopath? Probably not. I'm hungry.whatever

Re: Have you come across a person who may be a true psychopath....
A few years back one if my friends had a girlfriend who was quite odd. She lied often and fabricated unbelievable "I caught a fish THIS big" type stories. I told my friend to be weary because she weirded out my wife and I. She ended up talking her next boyfriend (after my friend and her broke up) into helping her kill yet another ex-boyfriend by bludgeoning him and attempting to decapitate him with a serrated knife before lighting him on fire (while still alive). Does that constitute as a psychopath?

I knew 3 psychopaths. I met up with 3 high school friends about 4 months ago. It was 6 years since I last saw them, well the minute I started a conversation with them something felt wrong. Like they weren't being sincere. When we got to the eating table I went to the bathroom and when I came back took a sip of my drink. I started feeling dizzy and I knew these fuckers were trying to drug me. They all decided that they wanted to leave and I didn't say a word just followed them, then when I got outside I started running. One of them started chasing me but I got to the train station and dissapeared. I'm a lucky fucker.

Stay away from suspicious people! They will steal from you and fuck you up! The only true way to know who is a psychopath is to smile and come across as sincere and if they know you are doing that then they will slowly show you who they are and what they're intentions are. Come across as very DUMB and STUPID. They will show their true colors thinking that you don't know shit when you actually do.

Pack heat.

Their literally everywhere.

But the ones you ran into sound fucking retarded. There's much better ways too drug and kid nap someone.

What do you mean by they are literally everywhere?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 20672383


I mean more people are like this then you could possible fathom.

It takes one too know one.

Ive met so many screwed up people, its sickening.

Pack heat. They could be a group of buddy's on a college campus or a high society gathering or maybe an overly friendly stranger.

Chances are that shady guy or bum wont hurt you, the charming SOB will though.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 13515678


That's the goal. Can't trust anyone these days. I see through people's shit like I see it in a toilet. It really isn't that hard. And yes it's sickening. What really surprised me about my encounter with these 3 assholes was how kind and nice they were, but I always keep my guard up. They asked me questions like, would I ever do a job that involved killing others? Or have I ever experimented with dudes and would I? And I knew they were texting each other and acting all weird. The guy even offered me to go to the store to get something to drink. I said no. I was thinking there were some connections involving kipnappings around this area. Plus it was at night!

Yes they were retarded and thought the way they were trying to drug me and kipnap me was stupid so I'm sure they'll keep working at it. I should have reported them, but stupidly I wimped out. I went home cried myself to sleep and woke up stronger.

Another good way to see if someone is a psychopath is to test their patience, analyze the things they carry, and ask them about their values. It really takes a wise individual to see through the cracks. If your not then my apologies, good luck!

Grew up with a kid who was always a bit off..disconnected. He recently stabbed both of his parents, one being handicapped, to death. Who woulda thunk it.

Well, based on your avatar, which is just short of a topless photo, it's obvious that you view your looks and sexuality as the most important assets that you have. When these are the first impressions you give people, how do you expect people to treat you?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28604765



LOL, based on your response, you seem to be quite judgmental and are probably one of those guys. My avatar on here changes often. This one was fitting for my mood when I put it up. Not all of them have boobs showing. I embrace my sexuality. However, this was for a photoshoot. On a normal day such as today, I am sitting in my office with a turtleneck sweater and khakis on. I don't exactly walk around looking like this. As for your question - I expect people to treat me how I treat them and I don't judge anyone based on anything other than their attitude and character.

Re: Have you come across a person who may be a true psychopath....
Could you use his tricks to outwit him?

His "tricks" would be like entering into a power play that could easily escalate the chaotic mental orchestration. The psychopath would recognize the game you are using to try to undermine or control him.

I wouldn't try to use his game to outwit him even if you are more intelligent or even if you area a great subversive actress.
There may be times to use his game to get what you want but it would exhausing to stay in that frame of mind.

I'd use the tried and true behavior of Non-Reaction.
Display a flat affect to his attempts to sway, dominate or lie. Have a pre-prepared list of things to say to diffuse his words or behaviors, such as;

"I'm sorry you feel that way."
"Thats too bad."
"Uh-uh. I see."
Just neutral statements. Nothing more.

Deflect his wiley ways to mundane activites or change the subject.

"Is Survivor on tonight?"
"These cabinets are awful. I think I'm going to paint them."
"Geez. Look at what the neighbor kids did to that garage door."
Anything. Anything at all to STOP his command of the situation.
He won't like it. But you'll not have entered into his world of crazy-making.

I dunno. If you had a specific incident as an example it would help define what kind of psychopath you are describing.
 Quoting: Hellena Handbasket

Agreed.
It's not a good idea to try to out game them at their own game as the ability comes naturally to them but not to you, so you'll always be at a disadvantage.
But you can deflect them as this poster notes.

Lots of drama. They both get hurt, then both go out get drunk and use a whole ton of people.

And maybe they get back together lol

Yeah, but it will probably be another four (4) years before anyone can turn the key at Fort Leavenworth and put him in there.
