I got 27. While I'm not completely devoid of feelings and empathy, I'm not exactly Mother Teresa either. I've always known that there's something off about my personality, and many people who I know have pointed out my cruelness and impulsiveness. I'm definitely not a psychopath though because I lack the superficial charm and finesse and I suck at trying to sweet talk people. I'm much too reserved and shy to ever act overtly sexual towards someone or to try and use them to flatter my ego, so I've never bern in a relationship before. I am totally unable to sympathize with most people and I pretty much hate everyone. I am fairly good at lying, and I do get bored easily and I'm very impulsive. Plus I'm prone to making crude and offensive jokes that enrage people, and I am slightly vain and arrogant, I mean hellooo, I've just typed up this huge paragraph about myself.

The point is, I obviously have some sort of personality disorder, but I'm not fully psychopathic. Everyone, no matter how much you lie to yourself, has some of these antisocial characteristics. I'm a bleeding heart liberal who believes in pacifism and altruism. Yet in my personal life, I'm extremely callous and lack morality. Love is just an empty word to me. I'm fascinated by serial killers, murderers, criminals and just evil people and things in general. I have an apalling sadistic streak that screws up all my interpersonal relationships. Schadenfreude is my game. There's something wrong with me, but it's not psychopathy.. Maybe some people are just complete assholes....!

My sister got a 37. She is a stalker, blackmailer, physical abuser etc. of me, my husband and both our families, we can't even get a restraining order served on her or police to investigate her crimes because she lies so much. She hates me though, that's for sure.

Alia Rose: you sound like you may have narcissistic personality disorder, maybe also some antisocial P.D. My sister has those two for sure, but perhaps also some borderline thrown in. The thing to understand re: personality disorders, you can have a mild case or more severe case. My sister's p.d.'s are severe.

A psychopath won't even be honest with him/herself, so why would this test be valid as a 'self test'? It can only truly be used as an evaluation tool by an outsider. I know at least 2 psychopaths and neither of them understands that they're psychopaths.

I live with a diagnosed psychopath. If you took this test and you are a psychopath you won't find out through self diagnosis and it was pure F'ing H E L L getting my partner in to see a therapist. Plus, it didn't work. The only thing that works is clear boundaries and absolute consequences or gtfo. Truly.

7pts?

Seby1, that's what I'm talkin about.

and coping, too true.

mikivtc, I recommend you get with the punctuation program. It might help you organize your thoughts.

mikivtc, if what you say is true, you're not a psychopath or a sociopath.

I scored a 4, mostly because I suffer from depression. I'm a foster parent (I don't think you can be a decent foster parent and be a psycho-or-sociopath. You have to have empathy, responsibility, etc.) and I took this test for the boy currently in my care who is frightening. I only got a 28 for him. But then I looked up the differences between psychopath and sociopath and he has every trait of the latter. All of the things that didn't fit him on this inventory are things from the psychopath side or because he's too young. He is very controlled and calculating in the horrors he does. He's still a teen so he can't be diagnosed yet. But he also has every trait of Narcissitic Personality Disorder. He's a mess.

When I took it for my (foster) daughter, who is now 20, I got a 37. She's not either, though, because she does have empathy, just not when it affects her own desires and needs. All of the traits are from a combination of Reactive Attachment Disorder (which a lot of sociopaths have), Borderline Personality Disorder, PTSD, early abuse and neglect, low self esteem about everything but her looks, and having been born drug affected. She, too, is a mess.

I always score 8 when I self-administer the Hare Psychopathy Checklist. Not surprising. I have Asperger's, which cannot coexist with psychopathy. Autism Spectrum Disorders are opposite neural conditions to it.

My son is 19 and has all of the traits except the multiple marriage one.
It's impossible to get him help. He thinks he is fine....we are broken.

I got a 25.
I'm pretty sure I got the highest score here. None of you are psychopaths anyways, probably just punks who are emotionally confused.

I scored 34.
I'm 22 year young male, optician, nonaggressive HUMAN BEING. I'd prefer not to be lumped into the sum of serial murderers or rapists. I am an extremely bright individual and well liked by everyone around me. I enjoy networking and creating new friends.
I have not officially been diagnosed as a person with ASPD but I have fit the criteria for a while now. In retrospect, 'symptoms' have gotten more and more prevalent throughout the past two years, especially. However, I do what I can to stay out of trouble but it always seems to find me.
I've always been an exclusive person; allowing very few people into my close knit circle of friends. I have always had this ability to know what someone's intentions are. I let people in based on what I learn from that person, where they want to head in their life and how they plan on getting there.

IN RESPONSE TO @FXXKYOU
you think other people are saying they have psychopathic traits and yet you didn't even take the time do your minimal research and discover no one scored high at all. If anyone is a punk it is you, I know this easily by the following factors:

~You bragged about you scoring the highest (this is not a comptetion, ignoramous, this is a post for people to learn about ASPD, sociopathy, and psychopathy

~You clearly aren't intelligent enough to be a psych/sociopath because you couldn't even take the time to read all of the comments aside from skimming to read the numbers of others' scores (if you were a psych/sociopath you'd already be inprisioned for a petty crime over minimal drama

~a simple technique in psychology known as "projecting" (I'll leave you to do the research on that, yourself. If you're even smart enough to know how to research a topic without using WikiPedia)

I scored a 35. I'm a 21 year old female and have fit the criteria for quite a while too. My parents are just now calling me "detached." Any advice?
