of a Psychopath
A psychopath will use people for excitement, to build
their self-esteem and they invariably value people in terms of their material
value (money, property, comfort, etc..). To date there is no checklist of behavior
and symptoms that will tell you with certainty whether or not a person is a psychopath.
But there are warning signs.
Some of the warning signs of a Psychopath
are: superficial charm, self-centered & self-important, need for stimulation
& prone to boredom, deceptive behavior & lying, conning & manipulative,
little remorse or guilt, shallow emotional response, callous with a lack of empathy,
living off others & predatory, poor self-control, promiscuous sexual behavior,
early behavioral problems, lack of realistic long term goals, impulsive lifestyle,
irresponsible behavior, blaming others for their actions, short term relationships,
juvenile delinquency, breaking parole or probation, varied criminal activity.
The idea that psychopaths eat people is a myth. In reality, a person with a psychopathic
personality can lead what appears to be an ordinary life. They can have jobs,
get married and they can break the law like anyone else. But their jobs and marriages
usually dont last and their life is usually on the verge of personal chaos.
A psychopath is usually a manipulator. They do this by playing to the emotions
of others. They typically have high verbal intelligence, but they lack what is
commonly referred to as "emotional intelligence". There is always a
shallow quality to the emotional aspect of their stories. In particular they have
difficulty describing how they felt, why they felt that way, or how others may
have felt and why.
