10 Traits of a Psychopath

October 19, 2019

Psychopathy. Is it all about Dr. Lecter in silence of the lambs or Normal Bates from psycho? How about Patrick Bateman from American Psycho? Think again. A psychopath isn’t a crazy person from a movie. Blood thirsty, running around, ready to kill you on sight. Have you ever wondered if any of your friends could actually be a psycopath? or is Hollywood’s definition of a psycopath more appealing? Contrary to what many people think not every psychopath is a killer or a criminal They have a personality disorder know as psycopathic personality which falls under the antisocial personality disorder category in the fifth edition of the diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders. This disorder is characterized by lack of empathy lack of remorse and antisocial behavior Hollywood loves to portray psycopathy as madness to ensure a box office hit but in everyday life that’s not necessarily true When it comes to the likelihood of having a psycopath in your life the odds are not in your favor According to Dr. Paul Babiak One in every one hundred people is likely to have psycopathic traits and the probability is even higher as you go up in the office food chain where you’ll find one among every twenty-five managers and executives. The real reasons behind psycopathy are usually narrowed down to genetic factors Yes, many criminals are psycopaths. But the majority of psycopaths are not involved in criminal acts at all. Here are ten key traits of psycopaths. One Lack of empathy A psycopath simply cannot feel what everyone else feels. They understand your feelings but they don’t feel them even if you’re crying your heart out over the death of a loved one. They’ll show compasison only to please you. Not out of true emotional empathy. Two Manipulativeness Always knowing the right strings to pull and the right buttons to push psycopaths use deception to cheat others into thinking believing or acting in certain ways. They only focus on personal gain with no concern once so ever for how others feel Three Irresponsibility Impulsive behavior and irresponsibility is their lifestyle A psycopath would never admit to their mistakes. In fact, they turn the tables against whoever accuses them of anything. So that the accuser would think again and even feel guilty about their complaints. Four Narcissism Psycopaths usually view themselves as smarter more powerful and of more worth than everyone else. They have an extravagant almost theatrical self perception thinking that the world revolves around just themselves. Five Pathological lying Psycopaths tend to lie lie lie and lie even more. Their lives are spider webs of lies. This ranges from moderate levels to high levels of lying. Six Superficial charm smooth charming and attractive Psycopaths aren’t afraid to do or say anything they like. That abscence of embarrasement attracts others as it can be misperceived as high self confidence The hot guy glare is mistaken for sexual magnetism by women Seven Lack of remorse Psychopaths don’t feel guilty for the suffering and pain they inflict on others or for their actions in general. Eight Proneness to boredom Forever bored psycopaths have an exagerated need for adrenaline overdose so they’re always looking for excitement and thrill. Nine Bullying Psychopaths are usually abusive towards those that are not of much benefit to them. This could be subordinates elderly people children or in most cases animals. They like to exercise their power over other fragile beings through bullying and they may use hurtful words at any time without warning. Ten Sucker for power. They have an excessive need to exercise power and control over others In other words, they are control freaks. Everything must go the way they want it to. And that’s it for the ten main traits of psycopaths. Now that you know what a psycopath is do you think you’ve ever encountered one? Tell us about your experience below.

    You forgot to include loneliness and a crushing sense of regret, as a result of a lifetime of destroying people's lives as well as the inability to socialize with every day people. Also, many feel regrets because they know they are morally wrong. Just because they don't feel the emotions, doesn't mean they don't wish they could.

    I wouldnt say Lack of empathy, thats a sociopath. Pyschopaths aren't actually bad its a mental disorder, they have overreactive emotions that lead to confusion. Thats hy most murders are pyschomaths because of their emotions. They get so confused that they do things unknowingly almost like Vincent Vango. He cut off his ear and gave it to a women and didn't even know about it until someone told him. But they still have a bad label. It's annoying.

    Hi, I was married to a classical psychopath, but as usual, I too did not know about it, as he was so charming & sweet.
    In the opposite, i am very responsible, empathic & caring to a fault. I wonder what is the probability for my children to have these traits. My daughter is very, very intelligent & smart, but seems extremely narcissistic! Even I, as a person, don't measure up to her standards, and I have 2 post-secondary educations. My son is a kind, compassionate person, but reacts with pain to a constractive criticism & doesn't show an ability for insight.

    Ok, so there is just a couple of things that I find wrong with this video just a little bit. This is of course my opinion so you can disagree with me, but I doubt too many people are going to read this anyway. Psycopaths actually would rather bully someone their own age then an elderly person or child. We do that because it gives us the adrenoline rush and it establishes power. We actually do seriously care about one or two people in our life, but the lack od remorse thing is spot on. I havent abused a dog since I was like 6. So yeah, people are funner. Althoughost we are smarter then everyone else we dont think the world revolves around us. We enjoy watching the chaos and violence of other people. We exploit the order of social importance so that we can be friends with everyone. You never know who will be useful until you know them. But like I said this is pretty spot on. PLEASE READ THIS NEXT PART, there is this myth that if you make a loud noise like a clap to try to scare a psycopath that they won't react at all, from all the people I know who are psycopaths, none of us do that. If you want to test if someone is a psycopath, dont do that. They might kill you or punch you etc.

    Im 16 btw, not an edgy 12 yearold lol

    I haven’t looked at the DSM5, but I imagine that it exempts anyone under 18 from this diagnosis. Teenagers are, by and large, walking, talking masses of ALL the personality disorders—all at the same time.

    What gets me is how the criterion for psychopathy are a perfect fit for Trump—even more than Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

    I was diagnosed with this at the age of 6. Yes I’m serious. I don’t know how to act towards someone in serious situations. I’m very different to every one else. Sometime I do think about doing really bad things to people such as things like just jumping at them and attacking them. I usually don’t care about other people thoughts other than my own. Some people use the word physcho as a joke.. it’s really not. It’s very serious and I get lots of help and help with anxiety all of these are true…
