A psychopath is a person who displays a psychopathic personality. That is a type of personality disorder which is marked by a lack of empathy for others, little to no inhibition, and general behavior that is antisocial in nature. Individuals who are easy to anger, and who are quick to resort to violence without thinking about the future implications of their actions, are representative of such a personality. They often act aggressively to get what they want and along the way they fail to take into consideration the thoughts and feelings of others. For a psychopath, the ends always justify the means, but only if that means it turns out that they get what they desire.
Whether or not an individual falls under this category, and to what degree, can be determined by a number of different diagnostic criteria. Each test looks at a person’s choices, actions, feelings, and mindset to see whether or not they display the common characteristics attributed to a psychopathic personality. This quiz uses one of those psychological tests to examine the taker’s degree of psychopathy, as well as their level of narcissism. Work through it to see if you can pass, and in the end it will tell whether or not you are a psychopath.
