If I were a sociopath, I'd never admit it in any context, regardless if under anonymity or not. If I were one (which I'm not).

Not a sociopath (I think) just a pretty terrible person in general. My empathy sucks, and I usually choose to care little, or not at all.

I wouldn't label myself sociopathic, but I definitely have similarities with sociopathic individuals

Is sociopathy just a personality disorder (antisocial) like any other personality disorder, or is it something more sinister?

I've been watching the TV show Vikings, and Jahl Borg seems like a sociopath to me. He

Being a sociopath and a forumite seems to be oil and water to me. On the premise that sociopaths truly don't care what other people think and forums exist only to share ideas.

When I think of what a sociopath does on a Saturday afternoon my first thought is they are out there in the world taking advantage of somebody.

I don't think so, but I don't know what you mean by sociopath.

Big differences between INTP and sociopath: Sociopaths(anti social personality disorder) don't feel empathy or guilt; have no real friends, just people they use to advance their own means; Blatant disregard for the rights of others; And as all personality disorders: Has to be present in all circumstances of life, starting with early adolescence... yada yada yada. Not to mention that the diagnosis requires conduct disorder diagnosis before age 16. (although can be given retroactively)

Yeah the only way to tell if someone is a sociopath is to have a multi-day interview by a psychological professional iirc. The other way is if after 20 minutes of meeting them you want to invite them home to dinner they are probably a sociopath.

Logical way to secure ones existance ( especially for introverts ) is to become a sociopath. Otherwise you are left with all the bullshit the extroverts serve you down your throat.

Swallow it all if you want. I am 30 years old. I dont want to, i am fed up with it. People suck at logics, there is a market niche which i can use to my advantage, which i recommend you as well.


I dont value MBTI , but if you are INTP and you know tons of paths that the situation might evolve in, and you use manipulation just to shield yourself from those idiots, then the whole SOCIOPATHY negative conotations dissapear in the well of "not very important", cause intentions were mutual. However when other party decides to complete anal intercourse just to gain some advantage as a cost of our, it appears to be "must have" in day-to-day strategy.

Nowadays privacy abuse is very probable, it is even almost real. But with enough self-encourage you can become anonymous in fingerprinted society, use all of its features, and hide from all of its abuses.

Same thing happens when you have to use manipulation over people, you have to make simple logical bridges , which people are going to stand on, cause it is very comfy to do so in present situation. However when you know the action is another way around, they are the ones trying to make you stand on bridge, you just blow up yours, bam, end of story. ( by blowing bridge i mean informing other party of their rather not enviable position ). You dont even know how i dislike it, how much resources i burn to make it happend, but is simply works. Maybe i am sacrifising my potential to secure myself, i dont know.

Fight them with their own weapon, manipulation, but logical one, they'll buy it.
