Sociopaths are usually the victims of their environment. Why any normal person would want to disconnect emotionally is beyond me. If I had to participate in drive-by shootings to get food on the table, I too might consider brain damaging myself.

>mfw all the tumblr fangirls like someone who doesn't even understand what he's talking about
In the olden days, "sociopathy" was called "being a dick" and it was treated with a highly effective method known as "getting your ass kicked
These days, people go out of their way to diagnose themselves with mental illnesses to get special snowflake points.
Instead of thinking "hmm I might be a sociopath. Maybe I should work on changing that", they think "awesome, I might be a sociopath. That's another adjective I can put on my tumblr intro. I'm going to join the 'sociopath' community"
You see the same thing with autism, depression, eating disorders... all mental illnesses ypu can imagine. I'm not doubting that there is a neurological aspect to those illnesses, or that they aren't real, but don't treat it like an identity.
>>26169061 a lot of NEETs think that "I'm mentally ill" is a great way to escape responsibility. So they sit at home and feel justified in binging anime and jacking off on 4chan. And if anyone dares to ask them why they don't move out of the proverbial basement and start actually living a real life, they respond "well I'm actually a sociopath, so I have a hard time holding a job or getting a girlfriend"
No nigga, real fucking sociopaths are the dude I knew in highschool who was a fucking ladies man, on the football team, started working at a bank halfway through college, and then was found with a freezer full of cat heads in a hotel room.
That's a fucking sociopath. A legitimate crazy dude. Not some edgy neckbeard who needs and excuse to feel exceptional by societies standards but is too lazy than to do more than sit at home and fucking spazz out on the internet
Fuck this comment looks like I'm directing all this at you >>26169061
If you are a self-realized sociopath you go on with your life. There's really not much you can do. Nothing to deal with. Unless you want to screw people over, then you should, and you probably already are.
>>26169061 >>26170012 These. None of us here are sociopaths, and the idealised image of the whole hollywood psychopath is just complete bullshit.
Pretty much most sociopaths are either working in high functioning jobs while being cut-throat as fuck (those people would never be diagnosed, there's no functioning issues), or they're scummy fucking drug addicts, who rip people off and lie compulsively.
There's no "cool" community of sociopaths, there's nothing to fucking boast about, because 99/100 times, all that lack of empathy means is that they treat people like shit, and are hated as a result.
Feeling different, not feeling empathy to people you don't like, feeling better than people, none of these make you a psychopath.
Oh, and the fucking term is Anti-social personality disorder, there's no difference between psychopaths or sociopaths, they're just old terms for ASPD.
>>26172327 I don't feel any real emotions. I'm always bored and I instinctively hate everyone. I'm a pathological liar I can't ever tell the truth. As a child I shoplifted and got other boys to steal. I've abused many hard drugs. I've committed a variety of crimes including arson, drug dealing, vandalism, attempted murder, etc. Almost been to prison on two seperate occasions. Been seen by various shrinks -- I lie and get away with whatever I did. I don't feel any guilt or responsibility for my actions. And I can't feel real connection with others.
But I'm learning not to be so selfish in a sense as I've burned so many bridges I'm always alone in the end. But then when I get friends and gfs again I return to my old ways never learning.
I've always carried a concealed weapon and when I get angry with someone I just want to kill them doesn't matter if its my parents or gf etc.
>>26172447 You just seem like you need to do something with your life to be happy and have days alone where you think how others feel try and learn empathy seriously life is always changing in your eyes change with it it's seriously not that hard guys.
