“I’m not a psychopath, I’m a highly functioning sociopath. Do your research.” ~ Sherlock Holmes

A person with antisocial personality disorder. Probably the most widely recognized personality disorder. A sociopath is often well liked because of their charm and high charisma, but they do not usually care about other people. They think mainly of themselves and often blame others for the things that they do. They have a complete disregard for rules and lie constantly. They seldom feel guilt or learn from punishments. Though some sociopaths have become murders, most reveal their sociopathy through less deadly and sensational means.

A sociopath is mainly identified by there being something very wrong with a person’s conscious. They either 1) have a conscious with holes in it, 2) they don’t seem to have one at all or 3) they are able to completely neutralize their sense of conscious into a perspective that they aren’t doing anything wrong. 

One thing is for sure: Sociopaths only care about themselves and only see themselves as being real or truly human. Everybody and everything outside of themselves are twisted in their mind into mere objects to be used to achieve personal fulfillment. 

A sociopath often believes that they are doing nothing wrong or doing something greatly good, due to their egocentricity and grandiose sense of self worth. They will cold bloodily take what they want and do as they please at any expense of anyone in their lives; predators who satisfy their lust for power and control through superficial charm, manipulation, intimidation, and violence. 

 There seems to be a difference between the made sociopath, one who’s lived a life with a childhood that pushed them into the mind state of a sociopath and the true sociopath; one who is born a sociopath.

~ Common Sociopath: Simple lack of conscious.

~ Alienated Sociopath: An inability to love or recieve love. 

~ Aggressive Sociopath: A consistent saddistic streak. 

~ Dyssocial Sociopath: An ability to abide by gang rules, as long as these rules are the wrong rules. 

A list of common, but not limited to sociopathic traits and charictaristics: 

Egocentricity, callousness, lack of impulse control, exaggerated sexuality, great boasting, inability to resist temptation, a lowly attitude toward the opposite sex, a lack of interest in bonding with a mate, siblings or their own children. Superficial and glib charm, need for stimulation and continuous praise, lack of remorse, guilt, empathy and behavioral controls.Juvenile  delinquency, criminal versatility, many short term relationships and sometimes a God like grandiose sense of self worth. It all begins and ends with that person’s defect of conscious.
