    There is a person I know about irl who has to be a psychopath based on what he has done in his private life - not just cruel and dishonest, but strange, and unfortunately intelligent enough to accomplish plenty. He of course is/was highly successful at manipulation.

    Years later I read his professional bio online expecting it to be subtle and intelligent in its manipulation. It was painfully transparent filled with passive-aggression, condescension, and mock humility. I think there are several people online right here who could see through it instantly. Of course people are more cynical now than they were when he was young.

    edit: I can't name anyone here though. Strangely enough, I think I blank out from my mind the people I don't want to think about.

    I'm not a psychopath, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

    It is? I don't remember ever seeing it (well, since DSM III? Maybe before the 80s?). I couldn't find your link to the DSM definition; do you mind reposting it?

    I'm sure I'm not the only person who doesn't enjoy watching sentient beings suffer acts of violence, though I'm quite aware there are those who do. I doubt it's as universal as you propose.
    You get me wrong; I believe you, specifically, do enjoy it and exist in a state of self-denial about it. I'd put you at a higher rate than the average population; probability is derived for your obvious interest in conflict. It is highly unlikely that you do not enjoy the general arousal that comes with conflict taken farther. Only as a point of conversation - I barely know you.

    Anyway, it's fairly universal, but it seems unlikely that it worth arguing over. The central point here is that the definitions are a continuum, with a healthy/unhealthy divide, and we all exhibit various degrees of any definition we choose to use.

    The good news is that the second time I make food for friends, I give them the antidote.

    I do enjoy the added layer of the fact that now *I* look like a psychopath.
