Some of the traits associated with sociopaths: -
· Glibness and Superficial Charm.
· Manipulative and Conning. They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible.
· Grandiose Sense of Self.
· Pathological Lying.
· Lack of Remorse, Shame, or Guilt.
· Shallow Emotions.
· Incapacity for Love.
· Need for Stimulation.
Manipulative - Sociopaths tend to try to seduce and ingratiate themselves with the people around them for their own gain, or for entertainment.
Deceitful - Sociopaths have a reputation for being dishonest and deceitful. They often feel comfortable lying to get their own way, or to get themselves out of trouble. They also have a tendency to embellish the truth when it suits them.
Callous - Some might be openly violent and aggressive. Others will cut you down verbally. Either way, they tend to show a cruel disregard for other people's feelings.
Hostile - Sociopaths are not only hostile themselves, but they're more likely to interpret others' behavior as hostile, which drives them to seek revenge.
Irresponsible - Another sign is a disregard for financial and social obligations. Ignoring responsibilities is extremely common.
Impulsive - Making spur of the moment decisions with no thought for the consequences is part of everyday life. They find it extremely difficult to make a plan and stick to it.
Risky Behavior - Combine irresponsibility, impulsiveness, and a need for instant gratification, and it’s not surprising that sociopaths get involved in risky behavior. They tend to have little concern for the safety of others or for themselves.
