My dad is a Sociopath. I will continue to believe that until his dying breath he can be helped. Perhaps I'm delusional, but I have to believe that he can be helped. I'm not afraid of him. Even when he gets violent and abusive. I rather get angry because he thinks he has the right to hit my brothers, my mom and sometimes me whenever he desires. This is not right. The Sociopath thrives on the fear that others feel. They get some kind of satisfaction from the fear shown by others. My dad seems to feel some kind of pleasure at the suffering of others. I don't think one should reveal their fear to the Sociopath, but it's naturally human to be scared of such a person. Dayle

Comment: Dayle, above, should seek help from social services or her doctor or someone to connect up with support for victims of abuse.

That said: Sociopaths who lie and are caught at it usually surprise people observing them by NOT responding very strongly -- this is part of how they fool so-called lie-detector tests (which are horribly inaccurate anyway!) -- but here and there, one might fly into a rage if punishment of some kind is imposed along with the exposure of the fraud. In that case, stay safe, stay away.

Why should you not lie?

because sometimes a lie can lead you down the wrong path,including death.also if you lie to the wrong person and they found out the can hurt you.just do the right thing and you wont have to lie about anything.Lies are bad. You will eventually get caught and then follows drama. when you tell 1 lie you have to tell 10 more to cover for it and if you lied to someone with a good memory then you will get caught for all 11 lies. Or you tell another lie to cover for the first 1 AGAIN.

Why do women lie when caught cheating?

"Cheating" means to "keep a secret" and my question back is "why do men lie when they're caught cheating?" Both parties are to blame. There are no excuses for cheating although many people will rationalize that there reasons are a totally different case than anyone elses. We all have a tongue in our heads and if we are unhappy in our relationship then we should have the guts to break up with the person we are with and then there is no need to cheat. There are cheaters that want to have their cake and eat it too and some that are afraid if their relationship with the other person doesn't work out they can continue on with the relationship they are already in. Cheating is selfish and it shows a person has no backbone. B: Just like when the husband lie when he got caught cheating.

How do you expose a sociopath to his willing victim?

I would think the most noticeable characteristic to expose a sociopath would be lying combined with a lack of remorse regarding their lies. Understand the difference between various types of deception used by normal people every day and pathological liars. Over a period of time the sociopath is bound to get caught up in his/her lies. The willing victim may choose to downplay the significance of honesty at first but the focus here should be on how the nature of pathological lying impact true intimacy and eliminate the existence of a genuine relationship. The victim should ask themselves if he/she would be able to lie about "X", "Y" and "Z" without feeling remorse or guilt? What would it take for someone to be able to lie about "X", "Y" and "Z"? Does this person really have a conscience? Once the victim begins to evaluate the actions of a sociopath through a truthful perspective they will then see the sociopath for what they really are. In the absence of genuine truth, love and respect the relationship is reduced to a cruel one sided game - a power struggle where position is falsely gained by the sociopath through the use of deception combined by the normal person's ability to genuinely love and desire to be loved. The key is getting the victim to realize this and then more importantly how to safely remove themselves from the relationship once they do.

Why is it difficult for people to admit the truth?

Not all people lie and have to admit the truth about a lie. The people that do lie and cannot face the truth have been caught in the lie; are embarrassed and immature enough not to be able to admit they lied and why they felt they had too. Then there are some people who have no self confidence that embellish (lie) about their life to make an impression on others and if someone catches them in that lie then that person feels totally crushed. When people tell a lie they are well aware they are doing so and hope not to get caught. Lying only leads to other lies and can hurt other people in the process. So, if a person lies constantly and it is mean spirited and they are found out, the person who lied will try to cover it up with another lie because they are afraid of what others will think of them and they could quite possibly lose friendships in the process.
