And I love animals; in fact, I agree with April from Parks and Recreation, who said that animals "should be rewarded for not being people."

    In short, I may seem scary, but I'm harmless. I suspect that my 33% can mostly be attributed to my inordinate fondness for roller coasters.
    Same. I am highly spontaneous, sometimes change plans, and am open to adventure. I mean you have to have multiple traits in combination for psychopathy to even apply, but apparently the lower your score the more likely you are to be good helping people or animals. I like the Parks and Recreation quote, that's right up my alley

    Anyway if some people didn't have partial traits they wouldn't be able to do what it is they do. While I strongly disagree it's "neccessary" to be able to run a greedy corporation or corrupt government, people who have higher risk taking and cool heads, like Winston Churchill, are necessary to fight bad guys. I mean some people will set you on fire as soon as look at you, I'm glad there are people who can stand being prison wardens, at least those who aren't full blown sociopaths themselves. Even ethical politicians and police officers need a certain strength, even if they have high empathy, it's great if they are not emotionally reactive.

    I got 39%.

    I've been reading Hervey Cleckley's book The Mask of Sanity and he describes psychopaths as presenting a deceptively sane, healthy, intelligent person but who fundamentally revels a extremely chaotic internal personality. They seem to have no strong urges or purpose for all the strange things they do other than weak whims, they they are defined by weak drives but even weaker inhibitions. He suspects they are even more fundamentally disturbed than psychotic individuals(like schizophrenics), he says their "mask of sanity" hides a deep semantic neuropsychiatric disorder.

    He goes on to describe the clinical manifestations of patients he's observed, they all seem like very normal people initially but their background records are littered with buffonish antics and irrational self-sabotaging behaviors, they lie effortlessly and are unfazed when caught in a lie, they have very trivial motivations and concerns, and have no sense of emotional significance.

    What's really interesting is when he goes over fictional representations of psychopaths, he says most miss the mark, such as psychopaths having inconsistent aims, most villains are too consistently evil and purposeful in their aims to be full psychopaths. He actually names Scarlett O'Hara(from Gone With The Wind) as a very close approximation of a psychopath. When it comes to historical figures he actually excludes Hitler because he showed strong emotionality, anxiousness and purposeful behavior. He name checks Alcibiades, a ancient Greek statesman and military general, as a excellent example of a psychopath because of his inconsistent, reckless and traitorous behavior.

    The more machiavellian traits are somewhat missing from Cleckley's clinical profile, Robert Hare's Psychopathy Checklist added those features but they are both generally describing the same personality disorder. It seems most serial killers are probably psychopaths but some extra, additional feature seems to be needed to turn someone into a serial killer.

    Here's a good documentary on psychopathy, notice how the first psychopath describes murdering his own brother in a casual, matter of fact manner, than stabbing a man, then molesting a child!!!!! It's interesting that OJ Simpson is thought that be a psychopath and they used this info in his arrest.

    I got 33%. I'm just not impulsive enough to be a psychopath.

    Maybe... I'm probably not the best person to ask if you want to know if I'm a narcasist. It's the type of thing that can be hard to spot in yourself. I wonder how many narcasists are aware of there own condition? I'm empathy is probably bobbing around at indifferent. It seems to get weaker as the years go by.

    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.
