For a person to be diagnosed as a sociopath he or she must have at least three or more of the below mentioned symptoms

Research has revealed that since a sociopath never conforms to the rules of the society, he or she is not bothered about the consequences of his or her actions. Such people at times are also able to inspire like minded people. Some of the other traits that are common in antisocial people are that they are usually intelligent and have a superficial charm and they are able to attain success using unscrupulous methods. Thus they can also never learn from their own mistakes and they do not hesitate to indulge in certain activities that are considered immoral and taboo by the society.

Sociopaths are known for their superficial charm, calculative and controlling behavior, which is one of the main reasons why they are able to trick people and charm them with their smiling faces and good natures in a relationship. Relationships with sociopaths are really difficult to maintain as sociopaths are also masters of manipulations and they tend to take whole control of the relationship and the other person involved, leaving them feeling inferior and unsatisfied. Sociopaths also never learn from their previous mistakes and they tend to commit the same mistake over and over again. They also never hesitate to manipulate their partners to gain control and power in the relationships and as they are remorseless, they use any means and methods possible to retain their control in the relationship. Relationships with sociopaths are often one way and do not last long as there is a lot of stress in the relationship and the partner is left feeling worthless and unhappy most of the time.

Narcissistic Sociopath

Sociopaths with narcissistic traits and such a situation is a dangerous one, as these people do not want to be helped. Such people often tend to be highly manipulative and without any shred of remorse for their actions, even if their actions have harmed others who are close to them or their family members. There is nothing that can stop a narcissistic sociopath from achieving his goals. He makes use of all his charm which is highly superficial and intellect in order to attain his goals by any means possible. Such people often think that they are above all and they do not really care if anyone disagrees with them.

Psychopath vs Sociopath

Psychopathy is among the most difficult disorders to spot. The psychopath can appear normal, even charming. Underneath, they lack conscience and empathy, making them manipulative, volatile and often (but by no means always) criminal. They are an object of popular fascination and clinical anguish: psychopathy is largely impervious to treatment.

It is important to note that the vast majority of people with antisocial tendencies are not psychopaths. -www.psychologytoday.com/basics/psychopathy-

How to Recognize a Sociopath and Toxic Personalities

Sociopaths are very good at manipulation and deception. If you believe you might be dealing with a sociopath, psychopath or other type of toxic personality, proceed with caution. It might be best to avoid the person for your best interest. If you need help figuring out if a person is a sociopath, then you might want to consider taking a sociopath test. Bear in mind that a sociopath or a psychopath are unlikely to look for help, so you’ll be taking the test for them, hoping that the test will help you draw a conclusion with more basis. That said sociopath test should not be considered as a means for diagnosis, the test should serve like an additional tool or a helping factor to identify the condition.
