I scored 19 :)

With this test someone can find out if he/she has psychopatic tendensies. Do the Psychopathy Checklist yourself here:

Note: between 30 and 40 means you're in high risc of becoming (or already are) a psychopath. However, only a few individuals ever (worldwide) reached the highest score of 40!

Also try to be honest .. it's anonymous anyway.

- Dr. Hare is a professor of psychology at the University of British Columbia, and has researched psychopathy for more than twenty years. The following is his well-known and implemented psychopathy checklist. -

- For each characteristic that is listed, the subject is given a score: 0 for "no," 1 for "somewhat," and 2 for "definitely does apply." (Please note that Dr. Hare does not advise that the layman use this checklist for "diagnosing" friends and family; this checklist, however, does give you a good idea how it is used). -

1. GLIB and SUPERFICIAL CHARM -- the tendency to be smooth, engaging, charming, slick, and verbally facile. Psychopathic charm is not in the least shy, self-conscious, or afraid to say anything. A psychopath never gets tongue-tied. They have freed themselves from the social conventions about taking turns in talking, for example.

2. GRANDIOSE SELF-WORTH -- a grossly inflated view of one's abilities and self-worth, self-assured, opinionated, cocky, a braggart. Psychopaths are arrogant people who believe they are superior human beings.

3. NEED FOR STIMULATION or PRONENESS TO BOREDOM -- an excessive need for novel, thrilling, and exciting stimulation; taking chances and doing things that are risky. Psychopaths often have a low self-discipline in carrying tasks through to completion because they get bored easily. They fail to work at the same job for any length of time, for example, or to finish tasks that they consider dull or routine.

4. PATHOLOGICAL LYING -- can be moderate or high; in moderate form, they will be shrewd, crafty, cunning, sly, and clever; in extreme form, they will be deceptive, deceitful, underhanded, unscrupulous, manipulative, and dishonest.

5. CONNING AND MANIPULATIVENESS- the use of deceit and deception to cheat, con, or defraud others for personal gain; distinguished from Item #4 in the degree to which exploitation and callous ruthlessness is present, as reflected in a lack of concern for the feelings and suffering of one's victims.

6. LACK OF REMORSE OR GUILT -- a lack of feelings or concern for the losses, pain, and suffering of victims; a tendency to be unconcerned, dispassionate, coldhearted, and unempathic. This item is usually demonstrated by a disdain for one's victims.

7. SHALLOW AFFECT -- emotional poverty or a limited range or depth of feelings; interpersonal coldness in spite of signs of open gregariousness.

8. CALLOUSNESS and LACK OF EMPATHY -- a lack of feelings toward people in general; cold, contemptuous, inconsiderate, and tactless.

9. PARASITIC LIFESTYLE -- an intentional, manipulative, selfish, and exploitative financial dependence on others as reflected in a lack of motivation, low self-discipline, and inability to begin or complete responsibilities.

10. POOR BEHAVIORAL CONTROLS -- expressions of irritability, annoyance, impatience, threats, aggression, and verbal abuse; inadequate control of anger and temper; acting hastily.

11. PROMISCUOUS SEXUAL BEHAVIOR -- a variety of brief, superficial relations, numerous affairs, and an indiscriminate selection of sexual partners; the maintenance of several relationships at the same time; a history of attempts to sexually coerce others into sexual activity or taking great pride at discussing sexual exploits or conquests.

12. EARLY BEHAVIOR PROBLEMS -- a variety of behaviors prior to age 13, including lying, theft, cheating, vandalism, bullying, sexual activity, fire-setting, glue-sniffing, alcohol use, and running away from home.

13. LACK OF REALISTIC, LONG-TERM GOALS -- an inability or persistent failure to develop and execute long-term plans and goals; a nomadic existence, aimless, lacking direction in life.

14. IMPULSIVITY -- the occurrence of behaviors that are unpremeditated and lack reflection or planning; inability to resist temptation, frustrations, and urges; a lack of deliberation without considering the consequences; foolhardy, rash, unpredictable, erratic, and reckless.

15. IRRESPONSIBILITY -- repeated failure to fulfill or honor obligations and commitments; such as not paying bills, defaulting on loans, performing sloppy work, being absent or late to work, failing to honor contractual agreements.

16. FAILURE TO ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR OWN ACTIONS -- a failure to accept responsibility for one's actions reflected in low conscientiousness, an absence of dutifulness, antagonistic manipulation, denial of responsibility, and an effort to manipulate others through this denial.

17. MANY SHORT-TERM MARITAL RELATIONSHIPS -- a lack of commitment to a long-term relationship reflected in inconsistent, undependable, and unreliable commitments in life, including marital.

18. JUVENILE DELINQUENCY -- behavior problems between the ages of 13-18; mostly behaviors that are crimes or clearly involve aspects of antagonism, exploitation, aggression, manipulation, or a callous, ruthless tough-mindedness.

19. REVOCATION OF CONDITION RELEASE -- a revocation of probation or other conditional release due to technical violations, such as carelessness, low deliberation, or failing to appear.

20. CRIMINAL VERSATILITY -- a diversity of types of criminal offenses, regardless if the person has been arrested or convicted for them; taking great pride at getting away with crimes.

how do i access the test? i was told by my psychiatrist that i am one but i need a second opinion

I believe that IS the test. Just go through each of those 20 items and score yourself a 0,1 or 2 as the dude has said.

BTW I scored a 4 which I don't believe makes me saintly, just not psychopathic.

Got 2, really, I can't answer some of these questions!

how would one find/take this test?


There's a customer who comes into the shop i work at who's always swearing at people, even went up to the cashier and said "i don't want to be served by you you're a fucking idiot, fuck off" and to another "the police are after you, they've bugged your phone. I live next to Inspector *some name* and they've bugged you and David Beckam is going to get killed". Made a customer cry today after they offered to let them go infront and they replied along the lines off fuck off.

People reckon she's shizophrenic

Glad to see your back (snicker)

Most people are self-delusional and dishonest even to themselves, which is why such tests should never be done based solely on yes/no statements made by the person being tested.
This is especially true of psychopaths.

I don't want to gross anyone out but there is a question that separates the liars from the truthtellers and is supposed to work every time. I actually don't even like thinking about the question! so maybe I should just shut up now.

I probably got about a 7 - but I have ADD, many of the questions could be affected by ADD:
maybe 10

I actually lost a lot of girlfriends because, if they weren't right there, I would forget them (er, sort of, kind of - well okay, I was bimbo).

Say Grim, you do realize that this thread is allmost 3 years old and hasn't had a descent reply in half a year, right? :P

commented: 18 months later, the situation hasn't improved - so use your mod power to kill it. Another 1-post driveby shrub posted "me too" +0

Actually, I did not see that - it just popped up on my NEW list so I posted - that is what ADD does for you

commented: Haha, happened to me a few times before +0

Haha. I got a 22 and that's only because I couldn't exactly give myself points for the criminal and early behavioral aspects. ;) Doesn't count if you aren't caught, right?

Well ill be!!

Welcome to the site :)



Good,its not g00d to lie right?

I scored 3...pretty good......:)

9 some were not applicable though.

where is this Hare Psychopathy checklist, can't find it..

Its posted in the first post to this thread -- way over on Page 1.

Phew. 3. Looks like I can't do anything crazy and blame it on this test then. Drats, I had a plan and everything! :P

hmmm i got a 21. what do you think that means? for reals.

A psychopath will never view himself as one. Those questions are too subjective. For example the one with over-inflated self-worth. No matter how big it is, the psychopath will never think it is over-inflated. For example AH did have long term goals and plans. He may have even thought that he would be the richest and most powerful man on the planet in modern history. Also AH had plans to make the world a much better place in his opinion.

He did become the richest and most powerful man in modern history. He actually owned several countries and all the people in them like Germany, France, Poland and Austria. AH stands for Adolf Hitler. Now I think that I am trying to do a good thing by wiping out breast cancer in North America. It is my opinion that it would be a good thing but only time will tell. Is it an over-inflated goal? Only time will tell.

A psychopath will never view himself as one.

Thats quite true my friend!

An alcoholic wont admit they are one,etc........

Very nice reply there!!

i got a 25, too close for comfort...

and tbh i'm only 16 and am very prone to theft etc. I also show alot of tendancies that do show to be pshycopathic, also i have proven to be in the middle of being pshycotic or depressed, i personally think that this is a slightly void test as it assumes that all pshycopaths will cause crimes, however this is not always that case. In personal opinion i feel that manty are too logical to commit crimes other than theft, where we all know that with the net profit it will not affect anyone in the long run, and also fire isn't a crime in my opinion, it is only energy and most people will agree why was it put on earth if people do not intend to use it at any gien point...thoughts anyone?
