How do you know that you are dating, or even interacting with a con man sociopath? How does a con man sociopath actually thinks and behaves with other people? When it comes to a con man sociopath, there are many facets you might not know of.
Sociopaths are identical and predictable. Truly understanding the characteristics of a sociopath changes everything.
It likely sounds dramatic, an impossibility, and maybe a bit like fear-mongering to say with calm confidence, oh that guy? He’s a sociopath. Or, she’s a sociopath. – The breaking news is, it is neither dramatic nor impossible.
It’s practical and sensible. It is scary. However, calmly knowing sociopaths exist and are real and what that means is how we unplug the damage of the sociopath effect and influence.
Aren’t Sociopaths Only In the Movies?
I wish. – The fact is a sociopath is a real thing. A common reality. There are humans all around us who function from sociopathy.
Though sociopath is a big scary word, the characteristics of a sociopath are really tiny and limited. And distinct. There’s a good reason for this: a sociopath is a sociopath because they have a brain significantly different from the regular brain… yours or mine. Their brains are structured so that they have no sensation or experience of feeling: care, or consideration, or love, or even like for people outside their own body.
Pathological vs Non-pathological
It’s critical we take in an understanding of this phenomenon. It’s only been openly talked about since sometime in 2014 when the online communities of those in personal romantic relationships that went more than sideways began blogging and asking: what is this?, as I did for myself. 2014 is when I started this website and coaching others to safety and restoration after freeing myself from an international con man criminal, in short, from a sociopath.
There’s an unfortunate mix-up between what people are calling a “narcissist” and a non-pathological narcissistic person.
If you’re thinking of them as a “narcissist” read about and research about sociopaths for real answers. A narcissist aka sociopath aka psychopath does and says everything they do and say for one single two-fold reason and motivation only.
A “narcissist” is most often a sociopath.
Sociopaths Are Pure Narcissism
All sociopaths are narcissistic. They’re pure narcissism with nothing else in their minds aside from themselves. I know this language and meanings get very confusing.
There’s lots of material and many memes and so many Insta accounts that call the scammer a “narcissist”. And then also many that talk about the more mundane narcissistic person who is not pathological and who is not a scammer.
Unfortunately, in this confusion, both the pathological and the non-pathological are called “narcissists”. Most of the time that person you might be calling a “narcissist” is in fact a sociopath.
Sociopaths are 100% narcissistic. They’re in your life for a reason that is not genuine or normal in any way. There’s no one more narcissistic on the planet than the antisocial psychopath aka sociopath or psychopath.

Sociopaths Are Real: And Simplistic in Nature
Though sociopath is a big scary word, the characteristics of a sociopath are really tiny and limited. And distinct. There’s a good reason for this: a sociopath is a sociopath because they have a brain significantly different from the regular brain… yours or mine.
Their brains are structured so that they have no sensation or experience of feeling any bonding, love, care, or consideration for other people — or animals. – They do pretend to.
Their attachment or interest they display for others is where we begin to feel horrified because it’s not like ours. And it’s not good.
Other people hold no meaning to them aside from using that person for the sociopath’s personal gain. This means they’re what’s commonly called a con man or con artist, or scammer. And they come in male or female versions.
