Sociopathy 101: Understanding the Mind & Psyche Of A Sociopath

Sociopathy 101: Understanding the Mind & Psyche Of A Sociopath


Their World Is Nothing Like Ours

“A sociopath will do anything to win. Anything.” – Denzel Washington

What we think we know about the sociopath who hijacked us is usually not nearly the tip of the iceberg. Don’t wait to find out more. Go no contact.

Sociopaths will fake illness. Leave for days. Use the silent treatment to avoid talking. Marry only for houses, cars, property, and borrowed respectability. Sociopaths use online social media and dating sites to fish prey. Primary prey suffer pain and confusion when the sociopath-predator withholds sex. Change phone numbers frequently. Make bold claims about glorious accomplishments. Promise many things. Place their victims in position of being liable for their crimes… These are criminals: read more about that in this
NY Times story on one of the latest sociopaths put behind bars.


Let’s Withdraw the Magnanimous, Generous Credit we Give these Beasts

We tend to give the sociopath’s machinations more importance than they have. We imagine their ploys require “intelligence”. – They seem to be doing things that need masterminding because they’re doing things we’d never think of doing or dare to do. But when there is no concern for other people, no sense of responsibility, or obligation to society, family, friends, humanity, or any living being other than self – allowing one to carry out any action to gain a desire – is that intelligence? Or is it simply the “freedom” of not caring?
– Jennifer Smith


Sociopaths Fake Next to Everything

“Sociopaths are not usually physically violent. A typical sociopath never kills anybody and doesn’t look like Charles Manson – they look like you and me and everybody else. You’re not looking for someone who’s recognizably evil or scary-looking, but rather someone who looks normal. Another lynchpin is dishonesty. Lying for the sake of lying. Lying just to see whether you can trick people. And sometimes telling larger lies to get larger effects.” – Martha Stout

Sociopaths avoid work. Pass STD’s. Demand a partner to stop practicing a religious faith. Ruin others with lies. Lie in court. Lie to immigration. Block wives, girlfriends from their social media. Abandon their children. Lie to their children. Obtain fake passports. Use fake ID’s. Never have a real address. Use two or more Facebook accounts with different identities. Control and abuse children just as they do adults. Claim fame that doesn’t exist. Use someone else’s social security number. Fake education. Cheat through school. Leave others holding the bag for their debts.


What Sociopaths Don’t Want Us to Know About Them

Sociopaths don’t like us to know their vulnerabilities and darker secret behaviors and their genderless sexuality and are promiscuous nature. In reality, anyone will do as a sexual “partner” since there is no love or emotional connection.

There is concerted effort to hide their alcohol use, porn, prostitutes and gambling or drug use.
It’s important to pathological predators to hide their deep fear of discovery. Their huge fear of losing their prey, though they know every false-connection will eventually end from the moment say “hello”.


Violence, Secrets, and Things We Can’t Imagine

“I am sure that if the devil existed, he would want us to feel very sorry for him.” – Martha Stout

They usually keep violent behavior under wraps, their bar fights, stealing, criminal records. Sociopaths separate groups of people and their “second” family, along with their second or third or fourth alias, alternate versions of their names or completely different identities.

These pathological users can act out in impulsive violence. Uncontrollable rage. Manslaughter. Murder. They defraud governments and agencies. Embezzle funds or property. Blackmail. Commit forgery. Sells drugs. Pimp. And, really and truly couldn’t care less.
Sociopaths try to cover up that they know what they’re doing. These creatures know that by being what they are, others are hurt.


Sociopaths, Even if you Call them Narcopaths, or Narcs Need Others to Believe Them for Their Survival

“We do not have to be mental health professionals to identify the traits of the possible sociopaths among us.” – P.A. Speers

Here’s the best part: They don’t have a chance of using others or surviving unless we believe them. Recognize them for what they are. Turn off our emotional investment and connection. Shut down the sociopath’s ability to use and abuse. Exit stage left or get them gone.
