How to know if you are a psychopath
How can I tell if I am a psychopath?
Would a psychopath ever ask "What am I?"
Would they even care?
Is there such a thing as a "good" psychopath, or are they ticking time bombs? Wolves hiding as sheep, waiting for any opportunity to do whatever twisted compulsion compels them?
I lived a stereotypical "rough" childhood; abuse, drug-addled parents, isolation from my peers, it goes on and on. Pain and hatred were my lullabies.
I spent a decade and a half addicted to morphine, revelling in the numbness, the false warmth. It made me feel human. Whole. I don't take the blame on that one. My father gave it to me, using me like a slave to do things he couldn't.
I spent those years drifting from couch to couch, one bad situation to the next. I enjoyed it. More than I should have. I never once cared for the people that I abandoned as I wandered; one day I'd simply slip out, or explode, or whatever else it took to leave. The reason was irrelevant. I was always justified.
I even began seeing others as little more than machines, soulless husks wandering about with one purpose: to exist within MY world. I gave them a simple name: Non-sentient beings. Bodies without mind or soul.
I look just like another person in a crowd. But when I stand next to them, all I see are vulnerabilities. The neck, so soft and vulnerable. Eyes, perfectly sized for the shape of my thumbs. And it excites me like nothing else in this world. I've never acted on my urges. Maybe I never will.
I sought help, once. My family pushed me, but I wanted to know what I was.
But, like always, I simply pretended to be "better." Overburdened doctors don't make great psychologists. I was out in a week, and within two I was back to my old routine.
I've quit taking any form of drug, now, aside from caffeine and tobacco. The withdrawal was agony, but now... Everything is so clear. People are so simple. I feel like a god amongst mortals, a puppeteer playing with marionettes. And it's intoxicating. I'd be frightened if I really knew what it meant to be afraid.
I saved my test score for last: 4.56 primary, 3.94 secondary. And on another test, a 39/40. I was honest. I had nothing to gain by lying, so why would I?
try this one.
if you are a psychopath please let us know.
@jackie-green A real psychopath would lie and get a perfect score of 1 on both primary and secondary. Or a honest psychopath would get more than 4 on both scales. Since you fall below that you should be fine.
However if you still have doubts try this easier one.

@lucifer_ I just took the test and I can't tell if I'm a psychopath or not. For Primary Psychology I got 3 and for Secondary Psychology I got a 2.6.
In general "psychopaths" lack insight into their illness.
From the outside you would be able to see how disillusioned this person is, but they won't. They are guided by thought processes that strongly justify their opinions and actions, unaware of the irrationality of these. The way they reason it makes for a logical explanation in their view.
"Psychopaths" lack empathy. They find themselves unable to infer the impact of their action on another person because in their perception, either it's made necessary by circumstances or the person is deserving of whatever cruelty conferred upon them.
Btw, the term psychopath is apparently politically incorrect.

psychopaths/sociopaths usually display a disconnect from other people, being mostly if not completely apathetic and fail to grasp basic rules of society. the only thing separating the two is that psychopaths have episodes of psychosis to where the body enterers a euphoric and perceived super human state

(I believe it is a real thing, but it turns out most people DO have the 'gene' ... it's just depends on what path you take)
