some choose to pin checklists on people and convince them that they are sick, and bolster their claim by backing it up with supposed facts
maybe you are the sick one here, or what are you trying to accomplish with this?

Did you know that you are also a communist if you satisfy even one of those? Watch out, your neighbor could be a communist.

Here is a list of ways to identify a sociopath. This list is from "Profile of a Sociopath." Is is a pretty good list of sociopathic indicators.

Glibness/superficial charm
Manipulative and cunning
Grandiose sense of self
Lack of remorse, shame or guilt
Shallow emotions
Callousness/lack of empathy
Lack of realistic life plan/parasitic lifestyle
Contemptuous of those who seek to understand them
Does not perceive that anything is wrong with them
Secretive
Conventional appearance
Unable to feel remorse or guilt


D:

....oh no.

I like to kill level 80's in Hyjal until they log out and make an Alliance toon to yell at me. I don't see this on the list, so I guess I'm OK.

Having one of those doesn't make you a sociopath. having 3 doesn't make you a sociopath.
A person would have to display at least half of those traits on a regular (daily) basis to even be considered sociopathic.


that's actually not how the DSM works ^.^

Irresponsibility/unreliability


• Cold, calculating nature – The ability and willingness to use others around them to personal gain


• Shallow emotions – Lack of real emotion in response to events, limited capacity to feel love


Despotic/Authoritarian – Often the sociopath will see themselves as a necessary authority and will be in favor or totalitarian rule


• Low tolerance for boredom – Sociopaths require constant stimulation and get quickly bored


• High IQ – Often sociopaths will exhibit a high IQ which they can use to manipulate and plan


Well I picked out mine. Anyone who doesn't already know, IQ is the measure of your ability to learn, not how smart you are, for anyone who doesn't already know.
