What is a Sociopath?

What is a Sociopath?

A sociopath is a person suffering from antisocial personality disorder. Usually they don't lurk behind shower curtains. The "best" of them are very successful and well-liked.

This disorder is characterized by the following:

  • manipulation and deception of others
  • ability to entirely negate or neutralize any perception or sense of conscience
  • inability to form real personal relationships
  • lack of remorse and empathy
  • any display of emotions, remorse or empathy is just that - a display
  • high functioning sociopaths: exceptionally high intelligence and meticulous, thus highly skilled at manipulating others

How to identify a Sociopath

  • 'I-me-myself' person, self-centered, self-righteous
  • callous and insensitive to the feelings of others
  • denial or trivialization of wrong-doing
  • no remorse, shame or regret
  • distortion of truth, sometimes for no apparent reason
  • seemingly carefree, no sense of direction, acts on impulse
  • persuasive, superficial, boastful
  • considers themselves superior
  • parasitic behavior
  • narrowed attention, trouble adjusting to changing circumstances

Start to watch and analyze their moves and every word. You will begin to notice a systematic tendency to twist things for their personal gain, materialistic and psychological.

Sociopaths lie without batting an eyelid. And they sound really convincing telling the most outrageous lies, and without fearing to be found out. And they do it again and again and again.

What makes a psychopath very dangerous is the ability to convince anyone and everyone even when what is being said is an expansive stretch of the truth.

With their charm it is easy for them to net victims within their deceitful web by their likeability.

A sociopath can transform you from a confident and flamboyant person to a withdrawn and unhappy person. They drum negatives into you and blame you for things going wrong in their lives because you seem vulnerable enough to believe it. This unwarranted blame gets to seep into your skin, your heart, your mind and the whole of you, messing with your personality.

They want you to look up to them as your ultimate solution to problems; like only they can bring happiness into your life.

Stop blaming yourself for not seeing through their charade because the best way to catch a thief is to send one.

How to disentangle from a Sociopath

How to disentangle from a Sociopath

  • Break off all contact.
  • Give them no reason to hope that you will change your mind.
  • Don't provoke them by countering what they say, pay attention but don't fall for their deceptions and manipulations. In time, they may lose interest.
  • Don't try to argue or use logic. They will twist your words, logic is a foreign concept to them.
  • Apply the Gray Rock Method where you deliberately act unresponsive or unengaged so they will lose interest.
  • Manipulate them by pretending to care where it doesn't matter, use reverse psychology.
  • Become a strong and unreceptive individual, they prefer weak and easy prey.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
