Skip to comments.How to spot a sociopath-could save you from being swept under the influence of a charismatic nut job

Sociopaths are masters at influence and deception. Very little of what they say actually checks out in terms of facts or reality, but they're extremely skillful at making the things they say sound believable, even if they're just making them up out of thin air.

gee, wonder who that could be ...
They're easy to spot - their names are followed by (D) or (R).
Even worse.... the narcissistic-sociopath who craves attention and can’t stand criticism. This personality is even more dangerous when they hold grudges against certain people based on group identity or a chip on their shoulder based on their own perception of self and identity politics. This personality is especially influenced by radical academics and spiritual figures who distort reality for sweeping social movements.
An example of this was the sociopath was a self professed Satan worshipper (to me) and I discovered several on-line writings of his to confirm this believe. He was also very proud to have tested as a sociopath and tested as having no empathy toward others which he laughed at with great joy.
Yet when I mentioned to a close, colleague (who is also a devout Christian and was exposing this man consistently to his family), he angrily laughed, "he is not a Satan worshipper." As if I was crazy. I told him to go on-line and read it for himself. He never would and continued a very long term 'friendship' with this man all along exposing his charismatic BS to his children.
Showed me the power of the sociopath over his followers and their ability to dispense of even their basic values to keep these people around.
Could Obama be a sociopath? Likely. If not he is surely malignant narcissist.
#7) Tell the truth. It is powerful... perhaps the most powerful thing in the universe. The truth unfailingly outshines lies and deceptions. And even when the people around you may not see the truth, the greater universe does. By telling the truth, you empower yourself in all areas of your life, and you bring yourself closer to true spiritual understanding
I have found this to be true. Notice how the media protects the lies of Obama and doesn't DARE begin on the trail of truth. I think a few of them a long the way woke up from their hypnotism and realized their trail of lies is never ending with this guy and ultimately in the end his whole administration as he is a shell with a limited mission.
He is not truth. He is made up from a collage of lies to fulfill the mission of Commie/Socialism in America and to TRY to remove God from our nation and personal lives.

I know that God is love. I figure that where truth is, God is, as well, and where lies are, God ain't.
Does that certain individual you speak of rhyme with Buttcrack?
yeah and a very deep, dark, unclean one at that and that is just the WORD that rhymes with the dude. I need say no more about the man himself.
I read that book years ago because some dude was driving me “nuts”. Book set me straight.
I don’t agree that the sociopath is highly intelligent. He can have a low IQ and use his highly respected family name for credibility. That family name lets him get away with doing/saying stuff that us regular folks wouldn’t be able to.
Just paid homage to your rhymer on another thread. Sorry for the lack of credit. I should have put a copyright symbol after it—haha.
Go ahead my disciple lol. I actually “borrowed” it from a true O hater on Rightnation. Never once in 4 years did he called Odumbo by his actual name (snicker)
I would say that sociopaths would have at least a slightly above average IQ. If they lacked intelligence they would not be able to function since it requires a constant juggling of lies and an ability to play roles very well.
When you come across a sociopath of gifted IQ or better you have a serious problem. Adolf Hitler was one. I could name a few politicians in America too but everyone on this site already knows who they are.
This guy does a fair job until the end. He gives a list at the end of the article, the first item on the list is “Think for yourself”, and then he goes on to list a whole sh** load of stuff so you will think the way he does. Maybe he is a sociopath.
Your friend suffers from cognitive dissonance. The pain of knowing he was wrong hurts more to his ego than saving his family. He's not evil, just weak. But he's doing (or did?) untold damage to his children, which he will never face, but he will answer for.
re obastard? It's not a question of narcissist versus sociopath. They're compatible.
True ‘dat my Friend. True dat ;-D. My fundamental believe as well. Keeps it all pretty simple and straight forward. Not always easy (at least for this human) to act on but the clarity is pure.
I like your use of the word face. For the first time I got the image of face truly meaning to face ones' own face--in essence to look oneself in the eye.
In essence he actively studied and searched out information on the smallest of details that people respond to when building attraction, friendship etc. That was just the study (and he was pretty young.) but he was deeply intuitive as well and this combined with the sociopathic nature and his high level intelligence made me feel I would not be surprised when he is older that he has amassed followers and taken them down a very destructive path.
Even his wife was starting to see chinks, but shut it up as they just had there first child together. But then again what sort of Christian marries and has babies with a self professed Satan worshipper? I personally am blessed to be out but still in retrospect find it bizarre to look back on when it comes to the ease of deception of some people. But then again deception is a sociopaths full time gig.
Truth is light, lies are darkness.
