    Sociopaths as depicted in fiction: yes. Sociopaths in real life: no. Most fictional characters I identify with are shown to be sociopathic. Instances of sociopaths in the news or psychological descriptions of sociopaths don't match as well.

    There being a lack of fictional characters I can identify with at all, might be part of it as well.

    Quite often these characters showcase attributes I attempt to repress, though there's a definite possibility I'm either a sociopath or tethering on the border.

    Rorshach's more of an ISTJ... although his paranoia/psychosis distorts whatever type he might be. Dexter's kind of the same way... there's a rigidity to the type (need for sharp delineations and structure), plus the detachment from people comes off as schizoid which has parallels to INT perhaps but might not really reflect type at all.

    In any case, I can identify with the thinking process of the type... their logic makes sense... it's the initial assumptions + inability to accept additional information that makes a difference in what conclusions are drawn. They're kind of drawing just "part of the big picture" and strictly adhering to what part they do have, without any flex... and Rorshach fills in lots of stuff on his own (his natural paranoia/distrust).

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I don't identify with sociopathic characters at all. While it is true that less pleasant aspects of my character can be extremely cold and I when logic informs me that I must be I can be I can be very ruthless I don’t understand how a mind can be simply unaware of or unable to process that other actors in their lives are actual human beings with their own thoughts, aspirations and needs. The true sociopath sees other people as two dimensional caricatures inhabiting this world for their own convenience to whom they owe nothing. Even those I have considered mortal enemies have never been reduced to that state in my mind. To me the true sociopath, as well as being dangerous (at various levels – they don’t all kill), is a pathetic, soulless creature that is scarcely human. Defective, lacking in a critical portion of imagination – an accident of genetics and/or circumstances that is just one of those things that appears from time to time.

    Point is.. Are all my INTx bros potential sociopaths?

    If so. We need to increase our gene pool!
    Sociopaths have great social skills. Have you met any INTs?

    Great? :P Manipulative maybe. But great would suggest it's positive.

    No. Great gives magnitude, not direction. One can speak, for example of "great evil", without implying that it is positive.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    Lol, maybe 'great evil' implies negativity because it has the word evil in it?

    Great social skills implies a good use of social skills, not a misuse of manipulative skills that appear social. :P
