The variations of Sociopaths

A few days ago I hinted at a future discussion of the differences between Sociopaths. We are all unique people with different character traits. Our only common 'bond', if you will, is our lack of Empathy, Shame and Conscience. Everything else are variables in which we can differ. Just like Empaths we are unique. Some Empaths may have anger issues, others may be melodramatic sobbing Emos; some are sensitive and others are very INsensitive. The same goes for Sociopaths- we vary too.

Some Sociopaths experience little to no emotion or reaction to anything, these Socios, I believe to be the greatest 'thrill' seekers. Others can be very violent and easily angered, whether they hide their short fuse also varies. Some lead a life of crime and others barely color outside the lines. The problem with modern psychology and their view of psychopaths, is their main pool for study are the short fused, dumb sociopaths coalescing in our prison system.

Since when has a psychologist got to study the high-powered businessmen who just happens to be a Socio? Or the successful doctor, lawyer or even the mailman. So, because their largest samples of psychopaths come from prisons, they try to paint us all into that same box. "All people with antisocial personality are like this _____." As if it's set in stone. This is the only perspective the world sees.

Not to mention the score of pathetic spouses on the net, spewing their sob stories about their 'psychopath' exes who usually don't even half assed fit the profile. Empaths can be conniving and manipulative too, and they don't always feel bad for it either. So then of course after all these morons whine all over the 'net, what does everyone see? They see that this chick's ex was a 'psychopath' because he cheated. "OH WAIT! MY boyfriend cheated! He MUST be a Sociopath too!" and the cycle goes on and on.

Basically what I'm saying, is there IS a definite difference between being an asshole, and being a card carrying Socio. This is just me setting the record straight. We're all different, you can't just expect us to all come from the same angle. Most people expect us all to be grungy criminals you could see coming from a mile away- the reality is quite different. Take this quote by Ted Bundy- insert sociopath and maybe take out dead children; "We serial killers are your sons, we are your husbands, we are everywhere. And there will be more of your children dead tomorrow"
*claps dramatically* well spoken Ted.
We all saw where that philosophy got him.
