    yeah I was correct

    Psychopaths are individuals who demonstrate risky behavior, as well as the inability to follow social norms. They exhibit extreme temperaments, ranging from fearlessness to impulsivity. Apart from suffering from anti-social personality disorder, psychopaths are known to be delusional. Conscience and empathy are some of the common traits they lack.
    Sociopaths, on the other hand, feature relatively normal temperaments. They are easily agitated, and oftentimes nervous. While such individuals can be attached to an individual or a collective, they disregard the concept of society as a whole.

    The symptoms of sociopaths arise from sociological aspects that have affected them negatively when they were young. These factors include poverty, aberrant peers, parental neglect, to name a few. To wit, nurture or environment contributes to a person’s sociopathic behavior.

    High intelligence is often seen in sociopaths, although those with low IQs can be sociopathic as well.

    Sociopaths are pathological liars who have no problems telling false claims. In fact, most sociopaths can pass their way out of a lie detector test. To wit, it is impossible to get the truth out of a sociopath.

    LIE Ni


    This makes me doubt.
    But anyway.. If I don’t have it it’s good.
    If I’m a psychopath, then psychopath is also good.
    Because I feel well, and there’s nothing wrong with me.

    Somehow I doubt all Pyschopaths or Sociopaths as I prefer the term are all the same, since "psycho" sounds crazy. Seems a bit generalizing some of these common terms. But I'm sure it is common at least when any are caught. As for being a true born psychopath, or a developed sociopath it wouldn't matter much that they are such but with how they utilize their less inhibited mental powers for something that is conducive to society like Sherlock in bcc vs Moriarty, who's the other less conducive side of the coin.

    As for high intelligence masking psychopathy or sociopathy. It stands to reason that would be well possible consideration the self realization of their difference and developing safety measures to prevent anyone from knowing what would immediately alienate anyone from them if they knew, thus making them disfunctional unless no one knows. Which also means more outward self control.

    "Study shows psychopathy can be hidden if the individual has high intelligence "

    "ground-breaking research shows that there could be increased numbers of psychopaths in senior managerial positions and high levels of business"

    Ground breaking?

    I thought this was common knowledge. This is not amazing news.

    These are the people who make our society work.

    Thank you, psychopaths!

    People are weird... strong emotions drive us to do terrible things, but we demonize people who don't feel emotions. I understand our need to factionalize for security, but the prejudice we produce is far more harmful than the traits that divide us...
