How do you tell a sociopath that they are one?
Unless a sociopath is professionally diagnosed, you cannot tell that person that he/she is a sociopath. And the chances of one going to get a diagnosis are virtually nil. And DO NOT tell others that you think he/she is a sociopath in case it gets back to the person. Since a sociopath has no conscience, and since only self matters to a sociopath, he/she can be vindictive and even litigious when it comes to being told about his/her condition. There is no therapy to "fix" this condition - just protect yourself and those around you. Get the person out of your life as cleanly and quickly as possible.
"You are a sociopath." However, if they truly are, it won't matter to that person.
Sociopaths do not believe when you tell them and it may be very dangerous. Get help.
You cant unless you have the instruments. Sociopaths are exelent lieers sO you cant just walk up to them and ask HEY ARE YOU A SOCIOPATH!
Tell the police and get them to give a verbal warning
There is none, they'r the same
No, one should never marry a sociopath. Marriage involves trust, and a sociopath by his very nature cannot ever be trusted completely.
Given the fact you needed to ask this, I wouldn't worry about being one. A sociopath (which isn't a very good medical term, it's called antisocial personality disorder) is aware of their differences and employ them for their own benefit. If you were a sociopath, you would be pursuing some immoral if not illegal endeavor, not asking people for help in diagnosing yourself.
Although i haven't seen it done, i'm sure it could be. All that would need to be done is to watch the brain of a person who is, and one who isn't a sociopath, in a social environment. any differences would be tell tail signs
if they are seriously a sociopath take them to get help and then let them know you wanna end it.. i think itd be alittle dangerous to flat out tell them. hope this helps!
Definitely tell people! They need to know!
if you are asking, you're not one.

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
There is no help for a sociopath. Sociopaths victims can only stay away from them. Do not help them but keep an eye on their life, it may sound harsh but a sociopath DOES NOT care what you think so you are not hurting them.
Well, if you have to ask.... you might be in trouble! Actually, the truth is, if you fear that you might be "causing issues because you are a sociopath", you are not one. A true sociopath has no conscience, and it doesn't matter to them what anybody thinks of them.
If a person has 3 traits, that makes them a sociopath. If they only have 1 or 2 traits, it's only one or two traits. Having three = sociopath.
looking in their eyes is the best bet. the eyes tell all
what is the best way to get back at a sociopath
you get a restraining order and you tell the judge that he is a sico and then your child will be safe
next time she flips out, call the cops and tell them that you feel your life is in danger. there really isn't a way to convince them. i am truly sorry that you have a sociopath in your house.
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… Read More
By all means be polite and civil to a sociopath, but avoid a close relationship. Sociopaths want victims and are incapable of love. They can be very destructive, and a close relationship with a sociopath is often a very damaging experience.
being in public is one of the very few ways to be safe around a sociopath. you shouldn't ever be alone around a sociopath. they can be extremely dangerous. think of them as a very large predator and act accordingly
No, that's the definition of a sociopath.
Give them a copy of "The Sociopath Next Door"
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.
My older sister is a sociopath.
If you believe your spouse is a sociopath and you have an infant together and a pending divorce should you fight for sole custody of the infant child?
If you feel your child is in danger than I would say yes but if you feel he is a sociopath than maybe you might want to consider consulting your question towards a professional who could tell you the safest way of going about dealing with a sociopath.
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.
**This question is incomplete** A sociopath can be many things.
You don't. Get as far away from a sociopath as you possibly can.
It is better that they know so that they know what they're dealing with. They should only be told if a professional diagnosis has been reached. Tell them the truth so that they are protected.
If you like her, I highly doubt she's a sociopath, but ask her if she's afraid of commitment and shes more than likely to tell you.
If you are a sociopath then you don't love.
Anyone of any age can be a Sociopath.
There is no known cure or effective treatment for a true sociopath.
Yes, if the sociopathy is unrevealed. No, if she is known to be a sociopath.
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… Read More
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.
If you are asking how to get along with and/or live with one, the answer is to be ready to give them everything you have emotionally, and often materially as well. In short, prepare to be frightened and miserable. It is impossible to have a healthy relationship with a sociopath, because they are not capable of it.
Sociopaths are very charming and they will tell you anything that you want to hear so long as they can then have you relying on them. This reliance is a weakness, they can abuse it to make sure that you do as they wish. It becomes a relationship of the abused who comes to rely on the sociopath, and the sociopath who uses the reliance to fulfil their own aims. There is also the issue… Read More
im someone who does not do to others as they have done to me. my sister is a sociopath liar and my "revenge" was to just simply tell her what was wrong with her. i wanted to help her. i feel like you would waste your time with someone who didn't have a conscious .maybe real revenge may be the answer...?im just as confused
It is the place that the sociopath wants you in, they want you to rely on them, to care so much that you will do anything. To cater to their every need. They enjoy the power of being one who can control others.
A substance abuse counselor has a sociopath in one of her groups and I have caught him just staring at her and isolating her after group. Can she become a victim?
To a sociopath, everyone is fair game, if she is being singled out then she should be keeping her eyes open.
yes, not that it would necessarily make a difference, because of the behavior of a sociopath, knowing they are one would not bring a "sudden flash of realization" and therefore would not make much of a difference.
I don't believe so.
One of the most dangerous combinations on Earth! Hitler.
