    Wow, I recall writing "you're capable of dating a psychopath" as one of the "You're an ENFP when"... and I got quite a lot of resistance for that statement.

    ... and now look at them.

    Good girl, Xel. Of course you should expect consensus about something like this. Smart.

    Today we use the term antisocial personality disorder
    to describe the sociopath/psychopath.

    And it has nothing to do with personality type.


    Ps. I'm surprised that so many of you "knows" what antisocial personality disorder is, and can "pinpoint" who has personality disorder. Don't make me laugh. I bet you, if this forum even had five people with antisocial personality disorder, you wouldn't even know it because they wouldn't tell you about it. It's not untill you're locked up in their house for a year you'll be able to notice that they're in fact raving lunatics. I don't mean to burst EVERYONE's bubble or anything, but I can't stress the truth enough. You wouldn't know. Speaking out of experience.
    I wouldn't be suprised if you where right. God knows there where a bunch of serious headcases from where I came from before. 1 in 25 people have it, sociopaths don't know they are sociopaths, you just need to know to get the hell out of dodge when dealing with them. The best way to know a sociopath - Don't know them.

    Yep! I am hyperalert to that kind of behaviour now and just go with my gut feeling these days rather than giving them the benefit of the doubt... so many people in the world so little time!

    It is like I tell my son about stranger danger. If he feels uncomfortable it is better to leave and go somewhere safe and be wrong than ignore your intuition and stay and find out your intuition was right!

    On that note I leave the thread cause I obviously had not learnt my lesson well enough. I really don't want to know any more about them or talk about them and am even feeling a little unsettled... I got suckered in again lol bloody typical ENFP I am sometimes!

    Thanks peoples for your discussion. Decision to STAY AWAY from psychopaths CONFIRMED!

    Well you really shouldn't "be on the lookout" for it. If you do, you might turn it into an unhealthy obsession, which can cause you trouble establishing bonds, because you will be nitpicking their every move. Of course, this my just my opinion, but you'd be amazed at how quickly we (all of us) can become obsessed, even if it's just a little thing. E.g. the oral fixation of a cigarette.

    It will be quite difficult to figure out if someone has antisocial personality disorder, and not all of them are necessarily "bad". But the majority of them would go for the "I need to follow social norms, because that's what normal people do," and they wouldn't be violent.

    Just wanted to let you know so you don't end up with anxieties because of it.

    I had to look up this thread to see what you meant. I'm impressed with the content of your post there and also with the mere fact that you were able to remember back that far.

    I dont like them, but I am very fascinated by them. i'd definately be interested in sociopath if i meet him and couldnt resist asking him questions. But I would probably be happy to kill him after that.

    I called it the Harley Quinn syndrome enfps thinking psychopaths are interesting. Because Harley Quinn is an enfp. You don't want to up like her.

    We know that enfps like anything that's different from them. But I find them sad . But I know to say away from psychopaths and sociopaths because I am not helping them by talking to them. Plus, I don't want to get killed. I rather learn about psychopaths and sociopaths through reading about them.
