Profile of the Sociopath
Glibness and Superficial Charm
Manipulative and Conning
They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering.
Grandiose Sense of Self
Feels entitled to certain things as "their right."
Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis.
Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.
When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person.
Incapacity for Love
Callousness/Lack of Empathy
Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others' feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.
Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused.
Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency
Usually has a history of behavioral and academic difficulties, yet "gets by" by conning others.
Not concerned about wrecking others' lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.
Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity
Promiscuity, child sexual abuse, rape and sexual acting out of all sorts.
Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future, poor work ethic but exploits others effectively.
Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution. Changes life situations.
People with this disorder appear to be charming at times, and make relationships, but to them, these are relationships in name only. They are ended whenever necessary or when it suits them, and the relationships are without depth or meaning, including marriages.
They appear to be incapable of any true emotions, from love to shame to guilt. They are quick to anger, but just as quick to let it go, without holding grudges. No matter what emotion they state they have, it has no bearing on their future actions or attitudes.
They rarely are able to have jobs that last for any length of time, as they become easily bored, instead needing constant change.
Psychopaths have only a shallow range of emotions and lack guilt, says Hare. They often see themselves as victims, and lack remorse or the ability to empathize with others.
The boyfriend/girlfriend displays typical psychopathic characteristics because he falsely displays deep emotion toward the relationship.
Psychopaths also tend to switch jobs as frequently as they switch partners, mainly because they don't have the qualities to maintain a job for the long haul.
(1) They are habitual liars. They seem incapable of either knowing or telling the truth about anything.
(2) They are egotistical to the point of narcissism. They really believe they are set apart from the rest of humanity by some special grace.
(3) They scapegoat; they are incapable of either having the insight or willingness to accept responsibility for anything they do. Whatever the problem, it is always someone else's fault.
(4) They are remorselessly vindictive when thwarted or exposed.
(5) Genuine religious, moral, or other values play no part in their lives. They have no empathy for others.

sociopath is just an umbrella term for most personality disorders. Narcissism fits under that umbrella. And I'm sorry.

they'll also con and steal large amounts of cash from their grandparents with the most amazing lies and con stories, and yes I know one that does it.. she's in her 30's and uses her kids for emotional blackmail to get money out of her elderly grandmother, who is on a fixed income, while pretending to be "supermom" to everyone else.. sad, she's already got her ticket to hell punched and ready...

You either survive these people or become their victims. My son dated a girl like this. "Beautiful on the inside and out" it seemed in the beginning. Always professing a deep " love love love". But she had the capacity to turn on him in a heartbeat, with a vengance , without any conflict of the conscious , when she didn't get her way or couldn't control him. With the Good Lord's help, we survived this girl.

What put me in search of what id got in to i noticed everytime i questioned her about a paticular "lie of the day" her response was always 100 percent of the time was "dont judge me" and that was accompined by an extremely burst of outrage. I said im not judging you. Im just trying to make sense of you dishonesty. Finally i searched for this "judge me" behavior. Took me straight to socialpath behavior. When i read for couple hours i was like, damn, im an idiot! How could i be so wrong about someone. But then i remembered how there expert next level con artist.
