“You can’t hide who you are from an animal.
Many come to this site through searches for the relationship between combinations of the above. I don’t know why. Please feel free to share any thoughts or experiences — there are no “wrong” observations and PCness is not necessary. What cat behaviors lead you (and there are many of you) to think that cats are able to recognize psychopaths? All I have here is one paragraph and some comments.
Unusual search: Can cats sense someone is a sociopath?
This is the first time I’ve ever seen this search. All I can say, the most extreme female sociopath I’ve ever known said cats and dogs hated her. Was this just something unique to her or do dogs and cats have some innate sense of fairplay? Did they recognize her as a rapacious, reptilian-minded predator? I don’t know.
. . . there are both psychopaths and sociopaths that happen to love animals but have no regard for human life. Then there are, some that have no regard for life in general, other than their own.Leaving the article so broad, it’s not necessarily a good idea.
It’s true to some extent, animals, like some people are a good judge of character but it’s not true for every animal or person. There are some dumb / too trusting people, cats and dogs out there as well.
Animals, since they tend to have a lot more non audible or visual cues and pay attention to them more often than we do to each others body language, the animals know when they are in danger more often than humans do.
It also has to do with bio-chemistry too, since animals can smell things most humans cannot, they can tell if someone is a danger to them or not, or they can even smell “fear” and that they are “easy prey”.
Cats are sociopaths :http://www.mile73.com/?p=400
yes cats and dogs have something against sociopaths the female sociopath i was with was morbidly afraid of even the smallest dogs.
Cats can, but dogs can’t. This is why Female Sociopaths have small dogs. It serves the function of making them look compassionate in the eyes of others.
They see the dog as an object, not a life. No matter how much they tell you their pet dog is their “baby”, female sociopaths will begin shopping for a replacement dog before the previous dog has died. This is something a human being who loves their pet would never think of doing. Apart from the stress a new dog may cause a dying old dog in the last weeks of its life, this also shows how for all their “my baby!” talk the female sociopath sees the dog as an object with no real love for it. Which is also how they see people.
