Sociopaths. Are you living with one? Are you in danger? Key? They blame others for their failures.

One thing to note: While we tend to use the terms “sociopath” and “psychopath” interchangeably, they mean different things. Whereas most sociopaths are prone to impulsive behavior and often seen as disturbed or unhinged, a psychopath is cold and calculating, sometimes even charming. “I view [psychopathy] as the extreme end of the antisocial spectrum,” says Dr. Black, “because virtually all psychopaths are antisocial, but not all anti-socials have psychopathy.”

  1. My experience with narcissists and sociopaths is they are one step away from being violent when they perceive a threat against their personality. I have seen them go from zero to 10/10 in seconds.

    Women need to know that the threat is there.

  2. I totally agree Rebecca. We have both seen this in law enforcement. The Key noted in the post is crucial regarding blaming others and not taking responsibility.
