Have you ever wondered if you could be a sociopath? Good news, you’re probably not. Most sociopaths are so narcissistic they wouldn’t even think to question themselves. At the same time, plenty of everyday sociopaths walk among us all the time. While television and movies label sociopaths as brutal killers, most just use social charm and manipulation to get what they want without remorse. Of course, it’s always possible you’re a sociopath, and you don’t even know it. More than likely you’ve known a high functioning sociopath growing up or know one right now. We’re here to help set the record straight and tell you about sociopathic characteristics. Please note that this in no way diagnosing a personality disorder. Only a trained professional can make that diagnosis. Here are 25 Signs You Could Be A Sociopath.
You Hurt Others and Don't Care
You regularly say and do hurtful things to other people without a care in the world. You’ll demean, discourage, and put people down and not even know you’re doing it much less feel bad about it.
You're Emotionally Detatched
You are notorious for being emotionally removed. You don’t feel empathy for other people’s problems and only view relationships as a means to an end.
You Have No Moral Compass
Overall, you lack any kind of moral identity and moral compass. Morals don’t play a part in your thinking. You’ll do whatever it takes to get what you want, regardless of the damage. Due to this, you probably have had a few run-ins with the police and maybe spent time in jail.
You're a Compulsive Liar
A cornerstone trait of the sociopath is lying. You compulsively lie to get what you want and manipulate and confuse a situation. It’s rare for you to show the usual signs of lying, too, like avoiding eye contact and looking nervous. Often, you’ll lie even when overwhelming evidence and facts have been set at your feet.
You're a Narcissist
Narcissists only think about themselves and believe they’re the best thing to ever exist. This trait is another big calling card of a sociopath. You’re confident beyond a doubt that you’re benefiting everyone around you by your mere presence. Often, you’ll use people and then throw them away when you’re done with them.
