You have to be born a sociopath. People think it's from a rough childhood but it's got nothing to do with it. I had a good and am a sociopath

You could say he was but really he was just paranoid.

It can be. For example; if a child is raised by a sociopath, the sociopath raising them might be cold and distant(because they could have trouble making an attachment with the child.) The sociopath raising them can also be highly abusive. As a result, the child could grow up to have a sociopathic personality, because thats all they know.

A sociopath is someone who doesn't care about other people's feelings. A deviant sociopath isn't in any psychology text that I can find. But here are some things that you might be referring to: A sociopath who is abnormal in some way. This would be any sociopath who doesn't fit the exact definition of a sociopath. If a deviant sociopath is just your name for a sociopath. See top. An unpredictable sociopath. A sociopath who is unpredictable in some way, beyond a sociopath's normal unpredictability.

No, that's the definition of a sociopath.

My older sister is a sociopath.

No. Sociopaths have no conscience. The victim of a sociopath has a conscience and emotions and will not become a sociopath. If the victim of a sociopath is acting different it is probably because of the abuse the victim is enduring from the sociopath. If you have any more questions I would be happy to answer. Based on personal experience, I believe this is accurate.

You don't. Get as far away from a sociopath as you possibly can.

There is some controversy. My stance is that you are biologically born a sociopath, however some believe you become a sociopath by how you were raised.

Yes could do, but so could someone that was perfectly sane.

There is no known cure or effective treatment for a true sociopath.

Anyone of any age can be a Sociopath.

Yes, if the sociopathy is unrevealed. No, if she is known to be a sociopath.

Anyone could be suicidal, so it fully depends on the trouble the sociopath has gotten themselves into. But in general, a sociopath ... being unable to feel guilt, shame or remorse ... has many more options to resolve their particular issues before resorting to suicide.A sociopath could become aware that they are on the verge of being completely exposed, and if that exposure includes criminal activities, then suicide may be considered the only way out for some.THE BIGGER RISK IS TO THE VICTIMA sociopath will do anything it takes to achieve their objectives ... objectives which are usually narcissistic in nature. They manipulate, control and use others to help them reach their goals.If a sociopath determines that an individual knows enough truth to expose the sociopath (whether that individual does or not), the sociopath begins to target that person, and that's a very dangerous place to be.Though likely unaware of being attacked, that individual begins being maliciously victimized.Therefore, I believe it's the sociopath's victim who would be much more likely to resort to suicide.

"You are a sociopath." However, if they truly are, it won't matter to that person.

Kuklinski's upbringing could not have been conceived more perfectly to create a sociopath.He was continually beaten by an alcoholic father, and also by his mother when the father was not home (he had a brother who was also a sociopath and killer). And sociopath does qualify as a mental disorder, yes. It does not excuse or exonerate him, but it does explain him.

No, one should never marry a sociopath. Marriage involves trust, and a sociopath by his very nature cannot ever be trusted completely.

The closest disorder to sociopathy, Antisocial Personality Disorder, is. When a psychiatrist treats a sociopath he/she says that the sociopath has Antisocial Personality Disorder.

Just because she is "female" doesnt mean anything. A sociopath is a sociopath and the only way to "deal" with them is to stay as far away as possible.

It is my opinion sociopaths want to remain in someone's life for one reason and one reason only.....The sociopath believes there is something left to gain for themselves.....If there were nothing more to gain the sociopath believed he could still benefit from the relationship; it would be over and the sociopath would move on to fresh game and more inviting conquests. For example, if a couple divorce, the sociopath would continue to fuel the first relationship to gain more money or material goods. It is interesting to note, in my opinion, the sociopath could already be involved in a new relationship or perhaps a third or fourth and still be actively devouring relationship number one.

Do nothing to indicate you see them as a sociopath. Find a counselor for them to see regularly, or a psychiatrist .
