So you saw American Psycho and can somehow relate to the main character. That makes you a sociopath ,right? In real life you will shit all the floor with spaghetti when a McDonalds cashier asks you to repeat your order.
>>565064792 I don't see myself as all that depraved, honestly. I had a habit in school of dumping friends when I wasn't going to get anything further out of them, like how you trade in old games for new ones. Generally I just find everyone's emotions bizarrely overblown, like they're putting on a show. The Outsider demstrates how I feel a bit.
>>565064852 They're dead, so I don't really think anything about them. Love seems like a load of shit, I think it's mainly just lust and being somewhat comfortable with someone. As for end goal, I have no clue. I'm in university (placement year) now, will be given a decent job after.
>>565065074 Did some stupid shit in school when I was much younger, in counselling and eventually sent to real doc.
>>565065938 Lol what kind of sociopath seeks validation from a cesspit like /b/? You're tragic and lmao there is no direct doctor to patient criteria for diagnosing one as a 'sociopath', so if you are what you perceive as a sociopath, which personality disorder did your counselor diagnose you with
>>565066923 I'll try harder. It was generally my whole demeanor that put people off, but I was sent there initially because I started a fight and slightly bloodied some kid. I don't know why, and no one else did, so it was off to the counselor for me.
>>565064558 listen faggot. Stop being an edgy little bitch. >friend died >didnt cry >dog died >no tears >parents divorce >no tears >I literally have 0 feels or conscience >I cannot go out with a bitch without cheating on her many times over >kicked out of 2 schools for violent tendencies and for constantly lying >shot animals out trees in front of my veterinarian sister to see what emotion is >masterbate thinking about stabbing cunts to death while fucking them
>>565067595 WHAT WAS THAT? HUH, DID I HERE A NIGGER SAY "HE WANTS DEATH". ILL FUCKING DECRYPT YOUR ID, BACKTRACE YOUR IP, VISIT YOUR FUCKEN SISTER, RAPE HER SLIT HER THROAT, FIND YOU RAPE YOU AND YOUR FATHER, IF YOUR CUNT FLOPPING LIPS EVER SPEW DISRESPECT IN MY DIRECTION. LEARN YOU PLACE!
>>565069680 Waiting for a flight to come in and don't have netflix, but you can think that if it makes you feel better.
>>565069674 I'm not Spock, if I stub my toe I might curse and shout, if I'm too assured of something I might not think carefully or long enough. I also tend to feign emotions to an extent if it seems necessary.
>>565070317 Oh shit ! >but you can think that if it makes you feel better. op cares about my well being! Definately a sociopath. I tell ya kiddo you're fucking scum. Please off yourself and I hope your plane gets hijacked by terrorists.
>>565071391 Like I said, I'm waiting at an airport, and it'd gonna be a while before my plane comes in. I'm sure you are a well trained medical professional though, and would know exactly how I should act.
>>565071767 I'm on a placement year from university, this is my third year here, only one left. I live quietly enough, have a sort of girlfriend. I'm considering leaving her though, because she keeps leaving shit at my apartment and I don't want her moving in. I don't think I've ever not been like this, so I don't have a control sample to compare with.
1. Have you had a time when you bullied or pushed people around or tried to make them afraid of you? OR: Harassed, threatened or blackmailed someone? 2. Have you ever used a weapon, like a stick, knife or gun in a fight? 3. Do you feel remorse or shame? 4. Tim Horton's or McDonalds coffee?
1:Have you ever met anyone like you.Obviously you are aware or suspicious,because i bet most ppl on 4 chan met atleast one psychopath or sociopath in their life or will 2:If the answer is "NO" do you want to
>>565073343 Ah, what the hell. Same question to you, also what is your diagnosis? Don't lie to me because I'm naive and exceptionally emotionally sensitive. I also have a hell of a time picking up on social cues.
>>565074159 It's very difficult. I find it hard to tell when someone is being sarcastic or trying to troll me, etc. I also miss out on a lot of things that involve ethical or moral issues or being polite.
I'm kinda the same. I mean, I share some of the general attitudes and gaps as OP but wouldn't consider myself a sociopath.
I don't get some emotions, some people have personalities that fluctuate from one extreme to the next in how they act (jokey one moment then mock-serious to the point I can't understand what it is and it ruins my mood and I feel like I've done something wrong) I understand when I have to put on an emotion to comfort someone or be there or to not laugh at something I might do here because its wrong.
My mother is autistic and my sister is too so there's a good chance I am but basically you sound a little autistic.
>>565074864 Yeah, people on /b/ and /x/ have asked me several times if I'm autistic (not sure which of those gives a worse outlook). I don't want to say I'm not, but I've never been told by a professional that I am, so I don't want to say that either.
>>565074082 It's perspectively really. How I see it is everything in life requires you get attention so that you can get ahead. Fame, Glory, Models, the world and its riches cannot be attained without their eyes. If you can't understand by ambition, than you can't realize it, and will continue to live out your life as that awkward guy behind the computer screen who's name is easily forgotten, and who will die empty, and lost. >yfw my words
>>565073821 No one can be properly diagnosed with ASPD until they are at least 18 years old. Before that you can be diagnosed with ODD but that is generally caught in childhood and the patient will have a lifelong pattern of deviant behavior.
Counselors can't diagnose anything "officially". A psychiatrist is the one to make the medical diagnosis and plan/suggest treatment. Counselors do not have near as much training and are pretty much just that, someone to listen to your problems and suggest ways to fix them. If a counselor did tell you that ASPD was your "diagnosis" they were completely out of line.
I don't know your medical/mental health history so I obviously cannot suggest anything, but you are definitely not a sociopath. If you met an actual sociopath you'd realize the difference. I have diagnosed a few people with ASPD and it's almost bizarre to watch their actions and even body language and speech.
ASPD is actually frequently both over and under diagnosed (if that makes sense). Frustrated doctors will write the patient off as having ASPD when they run out of ideas/options, and many (if not most) patients never seek treatment at all.
Dealing with patients with ASPD is difficult, and a lot of therapists won't even take them on, no matter how interested the patient is in seeking therapy.
I have met a few patients who genuinely wanted to get "better" due to consequences of their actions but not too much is known about the origin/background of ASPD so there isn't really a "cure" for it. It isn't like schizophrenia or bipolar disorder; you can't take a pill and hope for improvement.
>>565075079 Autism can be hard to diagnose, though. It took 2 years for my sister to be *officially* diagnosed despite people who had worked with a lot of autistic children saying "yeh, she's most likely autistic."
Question for OP now, >>565074872 Put yourself in a situation in your head where you have someone who has always been around you and they suddenly underwent a tragic event in their life and they come to you, in person. How do you act? Like, what goes through your head every step of the way? tl;dr if you need to, I know you said you were waiting for your plane so it may be awkward to type it on a phone or something
>>565075408 My counsellor did not diagnose me. I've bounced back and forth between various psychs and that's the diagnosis that stuck when I moved away to another country. I have not seen a shrink since then, but they were not very good. I don't care if I'm not a sociopath, I don't wake up wondering how I can be sociopathic. I act, and this is what I have been called. Take it as you will.
>>565075470 It has happened, and I showed up for the funeral, but then I fell out of friendship with him and he moved away. I arrived early, so it will be fine for a while
>>565075597 It is the layman's term, yes, it's not what I was diagnosed with.
>>565076350 That sounds interesting. You should really look into seeing someone else, maybe searching for reviews of the psychiatrist before you choose one. I'd totally take you on, but I'm not near you haha
>>565076646 Medication is put up on a pedestal it does not deserve. I've tried about 5 kinds of medication, two of which were for symptoms I don't need treatment for. Medication doesn't have nearly as much good effect as people would like you to believe.
>>565076646 If you are functioning well without it then it obviously isn't too necessary. But again though I am not your psychiatrist and I don't know your history so take anything I say with a grain of salt.
>>565076665 Do psychiatrists take on patients they think would be interesting? I don't think I would have the patience for that. Most of the people around me seem to like me, though. I don't think it's so big of a problem that I need help these days.
>>565076939 It's actually frustrating to a patient I would imagine, but most patients have to be referred by a therapist to see a psychiatrist. Sometimes specific practices require it, sometimes insurance does. A psychiatrist can accept or deny any patient for any reason, including interest. It's always nice to learn new things and see something different than the usual depression, anxiety, bipolar, and random person who thinks he's nuts but is actually just driving himself nuts. Those are the worst though.
>>565077338 Does this vary much from country to country? I also remember feeling much worse when I was first diagnosed, because everyone acted differently and stood me out. If I were ever to stand out, it would be on my own two feet, not someone's shoulders.
>>565079128 I guess that's a matter of opinion. I was raised to avoid social interaction whenever possible so I never have more than a few close friends. I tend to relax at home and strictly control how much social interaction I receive from outside. I have a fiance and a baby son though, so I don't consider myself isolated in any way.
>>565079228 I'm sorry that happened. If you were a sociopath, you wouldn't have cared at all about being isolated or anything like that at all really, though.
That's a huge flaw with the labeling process, also. Even when the diagnosis is correct, patients tend to assume the "sick role" and will slowly start to conform further to expectations people have in regards to the mental illness. When someone knows you are "sick", they will pick any deviant or odd behavior and frame it as a symptom (of course, not all people are like that). It's frustrating. A good number of patients actually have these specific diagnostic labels because of insurance reasons, at least in the US. Insurance companies often won't pay for treatments/etc without an actual need for it. Since psychological illness stems more from phenomena than any tangible cause, the companies want a real label with confirmation that the patient's situation is capable of improving.
>>565080464 I've always preferred to be alone and think, the problem was more the sudden shift from the way things were. I understand though, it always seemd quite bizarre that the few people that knew always said something like "you don't seem the type", I'm confused enough without that.
>>565080563 My dad has always been an alcoholic and he was emotionally abusive (yeah I know waaa poor me but it's what happened). He didn't want me to go to anyone's house or have anyone over, I'm guessing because it would lessen his control over my interactions. He worked in construction so I had to get myself onto the bus in the morning and home in the afternoon, and then I had to lock the door, make sure all the blinds were down, and wait for him to come home so I could ask him if I could leave the house. I just got used to it, I guess. It was the way my house was run so it was my norm.
>>565081162 No matter what you actually get diagnosed with, don't let the labels influence you too much. People are not very educated in terms of mental illness and some view it as unknown and scary, then there are others who have no idea what they are talking about in the first place haha
Come on are you really thaaat bored? And the entire point of the "rules" is that women only define themselves as women to get attention that they wouldn't otherwise have. I said I was a woman because someone was referring me to a male. Big difference bro.
It's okay though, someday you'll lose your virginity and the world will make more sense to you ;)
>>565082217 pussing out. you asked for this. you, by your own admission made claims to being a woman. you brought attention to it, making you a attention whore. if you don't like it leave. also, your so scared, take the tit shots, if your insecure about your face cover it up
>>565065938 >Love seems like a load of shit, I think it's mainly just lust and being somewhat comfortable with someone. Of course your description reads the same as a description of the red color from somebody who is colorblind.
>>565064558 It's pretty weird seeing people so conflicted over morality, "Oh, I want to get ahead but I don't want to step on toes." My question is, when did you realize that you didn't have any qualms doing what you need to do, regardless of other peoples 'feelings'?
>>565083609 i have nothing more to say to you. god i remember the day's when /b/ was less cancerous and trolled these sorts of scum. Now, brothers look, behold SJW femanazis are posting here. Truly this is sickening.
