Sociopathy is a complex personality disorder. Sociopaths exhibit a wide variety of maladaptive behavior which makes the condition difficult to diagnose. Sociopathy is not one trait; it is a syndrome—a cluster of related symptoms.

Sociopaths have a narcissistic and grossly inflated view of their self-worth and importance, a truly astounding egocentricity and sense of entitlement. They see themselves as the center of the universe, as superior beings who are justified in living according to their own rules.

Sociopaths are seldom embarrassed about their legal, financial or personal problems. Rather, they see them as temporary setbacks, the results of bad luck, unfaithful friends or an unfair and incompetent system.

Sociopaths feel that their abilities will enable them to become anything they want to be. Given the right circumstances—opportunity, luck, willing victims—their grandiosity can pay off spectacularly. For example, the psychopathic entrepreneur “thinks big,” but it’s usually with someone else’s money.

Sounds like illegal aliens, always acting as if they are above the law and should receive all kinds of benefits.

I'm thinking this applies to every Progressive in both political parties. They are fully convinced their stuff don't stink and they are invincible and untouchable.

This is nonsense. Almost every successful painter, poet, writer, etc. could be described this way.

Laboratory experiments using biomedical recorders have shown that Sociopaths lack the physiological responses normally associated with fear. The significance of this finding is that, for most people, the fear produced by threats of pain or punishment is an unpleasant emotion and a powerful motivator of behavior. Not so with Sociopaths; they merrily plunge on, perhaps knowing what might happen but not really caring.

Islam and collectivism have the goal of turning their adherents into such.

Successful painters, poets, writers, etc. aren't thrill-seeking risk addicts with a foul temper. They aren't necessarily manipulative liars. They aren't emotionally shallow but good at simulating appropriate emotions. They don't delude themselves about how important they are. They don't all think that everybody else is inferior and that they deserve special rules because they're so much brighter than everybody else. They don't think they can get away with crimes.

You miss my point. I didn’t say that were that, I said that they could be described that way, especially before they become established, and especially by people who don’t get or aren’t interested in what the artist is doing.

As well as 1,000,000 times as many wannabe delusional ones.

That's the entire point!

No, it’s NOT the entire point. Some of the “wannabes” are later recognized as great artists. It’s stupid to use lack of conformity and antisocial behavior and a sense of mission as a measurement of pathology, when it could just as easily be a description of Jimi Hendrix or Marilyn Monroe or Van Gogh.

True...but it is not a good experience being aroung people like this.

I have a co worker who is JUST like this. It is impossible to respect or trust her.

I just keep my distance.
