A sociopath is a person with a personality disorder that manifests itself in extreme antisocial attitudes and behavior and a lack of conscience. Sociopaths can seem very charming during the initial encounters, but overtime, their inner demons become unleashed.
The traits of a sociopath:
- Superficial charm
- Manipulation and conning
- Pathological lying
- Grandiose sense of self
- Shallow emotions
- Incapacity for love
- Lack of remorse or guilt
- Promiscuous sexual behavior
- Impulsive nature
- Need for stimulation
A relationship cannot be maintained with a sociopath because everything is about them; you are just for entertainment. They often attempt to dominate and humiliate you when you have done nothing wrong. They believe that they are entitled to every wish and will consistently lie to the point of being able to pass a lie detector test with flying colors!
Sociopaths are filled with rage and view another person as a target or opportunity for manipulation and gain. Your presence feeds their ego, but their presence destroys your sense of well-being. They are also very promiscuous and partake in gambling; their need for stimulation is on fire.
They have no concern for their impact on others and have no sense of personal boundaries; they alternate rage with small expressions of love which is part of their manipulative act. And they will never blame themselves and take responsibility; others are at fault!
A sociopath is not a person to even consider being a friend with; get out of their life as soon as your intuition rings a bell!
