How do you know?

That other post got me thinking... I've always kind of thought I was a sociopath. Some of the signs fit me to a tee. Some things i do for instant gratification without thinking or caring about the consequences, especially things involving money or sexual things. I just wonder how do you know if you're a sociopath?

You go to a professional like a therapist and they diagnose you.

Do you lie without feeling remorse? Can you manipulate and fuck over people you "love" without even a thought to guilt? Is empathy a completely alien emotion? Is love?

For some instances and some people i am over empathetic. I even help when it puts me or my husband in a bind. If someone is physically hurting I feel empathy. But then there are things that hurt people that I do and I don't care because getting what I want is more important to me. And I'm a good liar.

Then you aren't a sociopath.

Saying you're empathetic automatically disqualifies you on that diagnosis.

Gotta pull the old DSM IV TR out to double check tho.

Those things could also be symptoms of bipolar.

Thanks I just always wonder why I'm such a rude and selfish bitch.
