This is an interesting write up by a self-confessed psychopath I found on yahoo answers. I'm SURE he won't mind if I blatantly copy his words; a psychopath, by definition, doesn't care.
You know, I only read this question because I just wanted to know what are people saying about psychopaths and blah blah blah... And I'm really bored and I decided to answer.
Well, I actually AM a psychopath, I was diagnosed and everything etc etc. Scientists say there are many reasons why someone becomes a sociopath (or a psychopath). Reasons can be sociological (abuse in childhood, violence, traumatic experiences in childhood etc.) or psychological (some previous mental illness etc.). I guess I don't really fit anywhere, since nothing bad ever happened to me. It's just the way I am, always, every second of my life. Most of the time, I pretend/act. Nothing is funny, amusing, surprising, lovely, shocking... I don't give a damn about anything. And when I think about someone dying... If my mom died, I'd be worried about who is going to pay bills and cook. If my brother died... Well he's an asshole so... If my dad died, and he maybe will because he maybe already has cancer, hm, it would be very annoying to have a sick person in the house. My grandmother already has cancer and is in the hospital and I kinda don't want her to die because if she does we'll have to go visit my grandpa, like, every day and it's always really boring. And I sometimes almost wish one (or maybe just all of them) of my friends would die or something because I'm always bored and that would be kinda interesting. I never feel remorse, sorrow, compassion blaaah blaaah... When someone dies or when I for example see african children starving and other people are saying 'oh god oh god look at them, poor people' I just think, well, that's life, get over it, you can't do anything. I never complain, never judge, never spread gossip or rumors, I'm not a racist, homophobic, I don't care what are people like and how are they suffering just as long it's not affecting me and they leave me alone.
I'm bored ALL THE TIME and when someone is telling me something, even if it's my best friend, I never really listen, because I just don't care. I always pretend and I'm an excellent actor and a perfect liar. I never cry, I can't. No one really knows me because I never tell anyone anything about myself. I never talk about my feelings and people think I'm quiet, but actually, well, there's nothing to tell since I don't feel anything. Ups, I feel one thing and that is anger... And maybe boredom, if that's even a feeling. I always hold myself back because I don't want people to know the real me, because if they did, they'd leave me and I'd not fit in anymore. I really have to seem normal, because if i didn't, i'd become a reject and too well known and open to society and that's the last thing I want. I manipulate all the time, sometimes just because I think it fun. I know it can ruin lifes but, you know, I don't care... On the other hand, I never really wanted to physically hurt or kill anyone, though I think it could be interesting. I'm not going to do it but if someone hurt my family (or me) very bad, I'd probably kill them, just because of my enormous ego, I am completely unable to let people win in any possible way... I know I'm tactless and I'm sarcastic all the time. I don't really know how high is my IQ but I think it must be pretty high...
On the other hand, maybe I can feel... I don't really know... I don't hate people, I'm simply not very interested in their problems, conversations etc. I'm quite interested in personalities and I read a lot of psychology books... I have friends because normal people have them, I just don't understand why should I become attached to someone... It's pointless, it always ends the same, I get bored and I hurt them or they leave and that makes me tired. I listen a lot of music because I need to, it's essential, I have to get out of my head all the time, unless it starts hurting, it's like as if I had too many thoughts and I can't sleep at night... That makes me crazy but I really don't want to take sleeping pills, they can make you dizzy and I hate being out of control.
So, whatcha 'ya think? Are you like me? If you're not, good for you, I guess, ha ha. If you are, you're going to hell (if it exists), that's for sure.
