# '''LackOfEmpathy and [[ChaoticEvil Devoid of Conscience]]''': Their defining feature. Utterly ruthless doesn't begin to describe them: except for when trying to appear normal, they [[TheUnfettered will disregard any social norms and semblance of morality in pursuit of their own selfish desires]]. The Sociopath will do whatever it takes: lie, cheat, steal, extort, manipulate, or use [[BloodKnight outright violence]] without the slightest hesitation, disgust or remorse, and for as little as [[EvilFeelsGood Pleasure]] or [[ForTheEvulz The Evulz]]. Murder and violence have no more emotional weight than eating Chinese takeout or some other mundane activity, and they have no concern for the direct or collateral damage they do to other people, [[EvilCannotComprehendGood being unable to understand why anyone should]]. Likewise, they never truly [[EvilCannotComprehendGood understand the feelings of others on anything more than an intellectual level]], and may even believe that [[NotSoDifferent everybody else is faking it too]]. As many RealLife criminal psychologists put it: "They know the words but not the music." Techniques for learning moral behaviour, such as reason, therapy, rehabilitation and behavioral reward/punishment, will not work on them or tend to only make their behavior even worse by making it easier for them to fake it.

# '''[[ItsAllAboutMe Shallow Affect]] and [[AllTakeAndNoGive Complete Lack of Emotional Reciprocity]]''': A Sociopath is [[EvilCannotComprehendGood physiologically incapable of experiencing a deep emotional attachment towards others]] but - being a ConsummateLiar - learns early in life how to fake them. This shallow emotional life means that the Sociopath is unable to form sincere long-term relationships with anything or anyone, but will feign feelings of love and affection if they feel it serves their purposes. Most of the true feelings a sociopath harbors towards others, positive or negative, are rooted in an insatiable desire [[ControlFreak to dominate or control them]]. While [[{{Narcissist}} narcissists]] would prefer to be [[LoveHungry loved]] or [[GlorySeeker at least respected]], sociopaths don't care whether others view them positively as long as they don't stand in the way of their own [[ItsAllAboutMe self-centered gratification]]. In the rare event that a Sociopath actually ''does'' form an "attachment" to another person, it [[AllTakeAndNoGive rises no further than that between an owner and a possession and/or a valuable resource for advancing their goals]]. Thus, once such "friends" cease to be useful or entertaining, they will [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness abandon them or, in some cases, even kill them]] without any hesitation or regret.

Many of these traits are shared with other disorders, but it's the ''combination'' of them all that creates the Sociopath. And, like many other disorders, sociopathy falls on a spectrum. Some sociopaths are just unusually self-absorbed. On the other end of the scale are the [[AlwaysChaoticEvil ruthless]], remorseless monsters. Sociopaths also have varying personalities, levels of intelligence, and interests, which influences how their disorder manifests in everyday life.

# '''[[{{Pride}} Grandiose Sense of Self-Worth]]''': If there's a skill that exists, you can bet they believe they can master it in no time at all. Much like the {{Narcissist}}, they are supremely confident in their own resourcefulness, consider themselves vastly superior to all those around them and feel entitled to special treatment exclusive of everyone else. However, while [[{{Narcissist}} narcissists]] are self-conscious of how they measure up to others' standards, a sociopath's [[AboveGoodAndEvil grandiosity is all-encompassing to the point they have no concern how their actions reflect upon them]] ''UNLESS'' it threatens their ability to indulge their appetite for stimulation. Under such circumstances, high-functioning examples will [[PragmaticVillainy obey social norms to the extent necessary to sustain their hedonistic lifestyle]] while more low-functioning examples will react with unrestrained hostility towards anything resembling a challenge to their "freedom". Likewise, sociopaths are [[NeverMyFault incapable of acknowledging personal responsibility for]] ''[[NeverMyFault any]]'' [[NeverMyFault failures or disappointments they encounter]] (i.e: events which they automatically attribute to [[TheManIsKeepingUsDown those out to "keep them down"]] or [[YouCantFightFate unfortunate twists of fate entirely beyond their control]]).
