Sure, we have gone over psychopaths before and how to spot one, but do you know how to tell if you are one? Just about everyone who is a psychopath is not aware of it, so you could very well be one.
Psychopaths are people suffering from a chronic mental disorder. These people are often quite aggressive and unstable, to say the least. This is easily one of the most difficult disorders to spot, and those people who suffer with it can appear quite normal and even charming to those around them.
Psychopathy is a spectrum disorder that is diagnosed using something known as the 20-item Hare Psychopathy Checklist. Lots of different things contribute to whether or not someone is a psychopath and most psychopaths are NOT criminals. Below you will find a list of things that might indicate you are yourself a psychopath.
8 Signs You Are A Psychopath:
You are not someone who cares for the people around you. Don’t get me wrong you may act like you do, but you really don’t you are not compassionate and you often take people for granted. You never feel empathy and your emotions are quite shallow in general.
2. You are not exactly reliable.
You are always flaking on those in your life. You don’t often actually do the things you say you will. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes you come through, but only when it serves you as well.
3. You are VERY confident in yourself.
You are very self-oriented person. You believe you are far more important than the rest of the world. Your confidence knows no bounds, and you have a tendency to be too intense.
4. You don’t ever really feel guilty.
You do bad things frequently but you never feel any kind of remorse for these things. You believe you are above everyone else so any pain you cause is nothing to you. Guilt does not exist for you.
5. You have quite the temper.
You can be quite violent and are very volatile. Your temper often gets the best of you and this does not end well. I repeat THIS DOES NOT END WELL.
You do not care about anyone but yourself. You use other people for your own gain and you only do things in order to get what you want. This is both good and bad depending on the situation. While you will do things for others, you won’t do them without a bit of enticement.
7. You lie a lot.
You lie a lot and simply cannot help yourself. You are always forcing yourself into another lie. You make big lies, small lies, tall lies and everything else of the sort. Sometimes you do it without even realizing you are.
8. You are often manipulating others whether you notice it or not.
You use other people, you are manipulative beyond anything I have ever seen before. You can make anyone do just about anything. This is a bit terrifying, to be honest.
