    Tonight I did some self-analysis on my life. After exploring the past and present and some potential diagnosis, i have landed on the fact that I am a textbook sociopath

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antisocial_personality_disorder


    I fulfill more than my share of the following

    as well as these, the most poignant of which are BOLDED

    • Persistent lying or stealing
    • Recurring difficulties with the law
    • Tendency to violate the rights of others (property, physical, sexual, emotional, legal)
    • Substance abuse
    • Aggressive, often violent behavior; prone to getting involved in fights
    • A persistent agitated or depressed feeling (dysphoria)
    • Inability to tolerate boredom
    • Disregard for the safety of self or others
    • A childhood diagnosis of conduct disorders
    • Lack of remorse for hurting others
    • Superficial charm
    • Impulsiveness
    • A sense of extreme entitlement
    • Inability to make or keep friends
    • Lack of guilt
    • Recklessness, impulsivity
    I can also attest to the childhood signs such as

    Although antisocial personality disorder cannot be formally diagnosed before age 18, three markers for the disorder, known as the MacDonald Triad, can be found in some children. These are, a longer-than-usual period ofbedwetting , cruelty to animals, and pyromania


    I think that it is good that i have pegged myself on these things. But I have no idea how to deal with it, none.

    Any words of advice?

    Not that I am one to talk you out of that dx, but a true sociopath is not diagnosed by Wikipedia. Out of my own experience diagnosing people with a Master's(for what it is worth) a sociopath more than anything does not have a conscious. It is true that most were prolonged bed-wetters, pyromaniacs, and showed total disregard for any for life. However, in my experience for what it is worth, a sociopath actually takes pleasure in the suffering of others, specifically if he or she is the one controlling the amount and type of suffering.

    Self-Diagnosis is usually wrong. Good thing you're not in a Psychology class.

    See a doctor or a counselor about your fear. They will help you.


    I call it a fear, because that's what it is: a fear.

    Seek diagnosis from a professional before you go and label yourself as something you're not.

    I actually went through a phase where I thought I was a sociopath, I spoke to my therapist, and among other things, she said if you're worried about that possibility, you probably aren't one. If you were sociopathic, the thought that there was something wrong with YOU and not everyone else, would never enter your mind.

    That's what I was gonna say and I agree with this. A sociopath wouldn't give a shit. I saw a psychologist who talked about one which she saw in psychotherapy (he came there because he was masturbating tens of time everyday, anywhere, and he was tired of getting arrested so he wanted to be able to control it a little bit) and he talked about one guy which accidentally ran into him in a bar one night. The guy didn't say he was sorry so he and a friend followed him all night and he stabbed him when he got home. He was sorry... not to have killed him.

    Pyromania is extremely common. tons of people love fireworks, guns, homemade bombs etc. Some people just love them more than others.

    You didn't bold the part about torturing small animals or enjoying the pain of others. Out of all of those, those are the ones that you should really worry about. The fact that you posted this thread indicated you are worried about some of your other behaviours which indicates some kind of guilt or worry about what you have done, which pretty much disqualifies you from being a sociopath.
