  1. Will sociopath ever go through with blackmail?

    I was “lucky”, after some research, to find some incriminating evidence on the net about the person (should he be called a person?). After I left him, he would still threaten me. I showed him my findings – he immediately stopped the game, miraculously, my FB account was gone next days. His photo does not show with those texts any more (can be found in google thumbnails), still the articles can be found. As for the exact answer – psychos like to show off, they are not so smart as they seem to be, but the victims need skills to clearly show them, that they cannot play anymore. I think legal aid is needed in extreme situations. Once the gaslighting is realized – the sociopath is demasked.

    Are there examples of psychopathic behavior in hunter gatherers?

    Sure, as they are so much trained in manipulating everyone around, their aim is to be comfortable and belly full (most people are), but worse than that – they take some strange satisfaction in exploiting other people energy, as if they feel good if someone suffers.

    Why are sociopaths immature?

    Can that be in their DNA? Or what? They probably never had any chance to develop any healthy relationship (shitty childhood, adolescence background, adult desperation?) so they had to do that another way – inventing, practicing and then perfecting those hideous skills, just it did not really go the way it was to…

    Is calling someone a social sociopath defamatory?

    Before getting to know the term “sociopaths”, I just used to call them “energy vampires”, after some time I see that these two terms differ in a way, but are similar. Experienced sociopaths “hide” their true nature perfectly, so if one is not a victim, the sociopath is perceived like an ideal to the society, not like someone who is just the opposite one. From the perspective of a victim it is sure that is not any defamatory to name these monsters – that’s what they really are, but from the john doe’s perspective (gaslighting….), ppl around would tell, that the victim is crazy, not the agressor. I have no mercy for them, especially those “conscious master of manipulation” types.

    Are sociopaths attracted to sociopaths?

    They are. In the times we live in, everyone has something of a sociopath inside – call it the survival instinct. Sociopaths are very (maybe only superficially) intelligent individuals, with a lot of life experience, there are also some “ normal people” who would like to connect to some “soul mates”. Sociopaths can look for a sociopath company to be even stronger, “normal people” are just looking for a nice relationship. At the beginning one never knows who is who. The difference is that non-sociopathic people “levelled up” at some point of their lives and try to build something and can control themselves (sometimes sacrifice a little of the self ego to do something good). – selfish sociopaths consciously use their ugly skills (under the impression of doing good) to deceive and destroy.

    Are hr personnel trained to recognize sociopaths?

    I think that noone will never be ready to recognize or deal with a sociopath without actually, personally, long term dealing with one. HR can have some general guidelines on how to recognize one, but most of the society falls into those guidelines. Recognizing a sociopath cannot be learned through “handbooks”.

    Can sociopaths fake crying easily?

    Do they cry? But yes, they can – depending on the type. They can love, they can hate, they can admire, they can despise – but witch of those is real if any…

    When a therapist needs to end treatment with sociotpathic client?

    When the gaslighting is above control of the therapist?, when fellow therapist notices those subtleties (like with HR)? Or just after when the realization moment comes – of course if the shrink is conscious enough to recognize that. That also depends on the level of perfidity of the sociopath.

    Do sociopaths laugh behind your back?

    Yes, and not only.

  2. Wow. These are all such great questions to be asking. I don’t personally have very much knowledge of the actual psychology behind sociopaths or sociopathic behavior. I mostly try to figure things out through personal experiences. I think asking these basic questions is a good place to start for the sake of gathering real, working information to help in dealing with sociopaths in everyday life situations.

    It has been my experience that there seems to be varying “levels” of sociopathy, in my opinion. There are some that I term sociopath “wannabes” for lack of a better word. These are not what I would call true sociopaths in that they can’t help being the way they are, but seem to want to give the impression of being stone-hearted and uncaring, and are also willing to deceive others for the sake of there own personal gain, but it’s more of an effort than a true sociopath requires. Wannabes will also be more apt to brag about their “successes”, while true sociopaths are more likely to try to mask their true nature. As such, I think the true sociopaths are actually more difficult to expose, while a wannabe sociopath will be more likely to have many more open enemies and the worst reputations. A true sociopath is often seen as an upstanding citizen even though they are usually quite ruthless, but they have a way of making people feel good that causes people to (almost purposely) ignore their more questionable traits.

    One thing I have noticed is that a true sociopath does not usually perform well at crying – there are usually no tears at all, possible face contortions but often not even that. As an example – my mother, on the two or three occasions I’ve actually seen her attempt to express tears, covered her face with her hands and peeked out through her fingers to check the expression of the person she was trying to “impress” with her fake crying. Aside from that I have never seen my mother cry, never heard her wail in her bed at night, which, to me, is not normal – most women cry, whether a sad movie or a regret or a memory, or just because we’re women and sometimes we cry. On the other hand, a wannabe sociopath will usually be proud of their ability to fool people with seemingly genuine, heartfelt tears – they’re able to think of a sad thought, something that makes them cry, and express that sadness at a time when there is something to gain from it. A true sociopath can’t usually do that, they simply don’t have the emotional wherewithal to pull it off, and usually won’t even try but instead may use words to express a nonexistent pain, such as “I was so hurt by that…” if there is something to gain from it.

    I don’t know if narcissists know they’re delusional – I don’t think they know they are narcissists, so probably not.

    A sociopath – in my opinion, I’m not an expert – will not only go through with blackmail but will accept the “bribe” and still go through with it once there is no longer anything to gain or if there happens to be more to gain by going through with it.

    As far as psychopaths in hunter gatherings – I’ve read a little bit about that sort of thing in some of the crime stories I’ve read but I don’t really have an opinion on it beyond some curiosity. In other words I would need more information to form an opinion.

    Sociopaths being immature, I would assume is because they don’t learn from “experience” the way normal people do. When a normal person experiences a broken heart, loss of a loved one, etc., we tend to “grow” from such experiences, become more empathetic toward others as we develop an understanding of others’ pain through what we learn from our own. Sociopaths don’t experience such pain in the same way, I don’t think. A loss for a sociopath is a loss of something beneficial more than losing a piece of their self as with a normal person.

    Sociopaths definitely laugh behind the backs of those they hurt, whereas a wannabe sociopath will usually laugh and brag about a successful gain but not really experience any particular pleasure from another person’s pain.

    These are just some opinions that I have that address a few of the questions you ask but I invite anyone to argue or debate these thoughts and/or offer thoughts and opinions of their own, whether “expert” or not. I would always welcome expert opinions, myself, but I also like to hear other peoples’ non-expert opinions and thoughts about these things. I think this is very much what is needed – sort of a proactive approach to understanding how to avoid becoming a “victim” or even how to deal with the pain of having fallen prey to sociopaths/psychopaths etc. They are excellent questions – I’m glad you asked them.

    • Hi buster, great comment. These questions aren’t mine, they are searches that brought the authors of them here. I’ll give my own responses as I can.

      As far as I’m concerned we have all been failed by the so-called psychopathy experts. Who needs them? Experience is our teacher. Besides, the “experts” have a much, much higher percentages of psychopathy themselves than in the general population. I’ve found that intelligent, thoughtful psychopaths are very interested in their own condition, so why wouldn’t they want to study it?

      The wannabes are very self destructive, they are very often caught up by their own consciences. They bring a kind of PTSD down upon themselves and no doubt have terrible old ages.

      • Well it was a great idea posting those questions. I was so excited when I read that, I thought to myself “finally, a practical proactive approach to dealing with the dilemma of sociopaths/psychopaths, not just as a societal problem but in everyday life”.

        I also agree with you about the so-called “experts”. Still, I’m not opposed to hearing from various points of view including theirs.

        I think wannabes can often SEEM worse than the true sociopaths – they definitely have a tendency to anger people and to rack up the most enemies. I see them basically as victims of severe psychological/emotional torture, probably by a parent or other “role model” or close relative, that goes on to emulate their abuser, not only in behavior but especially in their internal thoughts and feelings, which is just like a train wreck (for lack of a better term) to their own psyches.

        Wannabes are typically misdiagnosed as sociopath/antisocial, while the true sociopaths tend to slip through the cracks, so to speak.

        – buster
