One study estimated that as many as 3. So odds are, you know someone who has ASP. What is sociopathy, or ASP? They ignore responsibilities and, in the worst cases, they have no conscience. One thing to note: While we tend to use the terms "sociopath" and " psychopath " interchangeably, they mean different things. To be diagnosed with ASP, a person must be at least 18 years old and have a history of aggression, rule-breaking, and deceit that dates back to their childhood.
Welcome to functional BPD - great for you but it sucks for me. The only man I've ever felt safe with, and the only one I was willing to marry, is my completely sociopathic husband, God bless his nonexistent little heart. I was just a few days ago Diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, and put on medication, but my friend was telling me about Borderline Personality Disorder and it seemed to fit me as I read the signs, being abandoned by both my Mother Who has tried to kill me for the last 16 years and my Father who told my mom to tell my family he died of Overdosing and had recently contacted me, I where my emotions on my sleeve, and my life history and almost everything about me I would tell to anyone.
I tend to use people, interact with them, try to manipulate them into telling me there life background and stories, observing them, only to cast them aside very quickly. I go through intense mood swings and I blackout when I get mad or angry.
I tend to fixate though on a specific girl I like, they become my all, before I have even asked them out, sometimes before I have even known them for a week. I rely on my anger to push me, I go through intense bursts of hating myself and everyone around me to not wanting anyone to leave my side and becoming exceedingly egotistical.
I have never been scuicidal but I have had scuicides in my family and have refused that option and have rejected it from my life. I have never been "close" to anyone for more than a few months, but blend in very well, liked by most people at my school because I tend to change subconscously depending on who is around me. The only thing that doesn't is my violent and aggressive side.
Can anyone tell me what you think i fit in as? I'd guess e its just another name for bpd.
My mum left me when I was a kid abandoned me my half bro and my half sis and proceeded to try put both of us up for adoption we ended up living with our dif dads. And my bro did go up for adoption. Luckily her dad was smart wealthy and lived in a big busy happy friendly house with the rest of his family unluckily for me I grew up with my dumb alco father who had fits of rage and did things like make me eat my own sick when he'd force feed me as a kid sorry for the heavy deets and I was v close with his mum thankfully so she balanced things out she kept him under control and I'd spend a lot of time at her house -not many friends- she was my soul mate and all I needed I think that's how I saw it.
Mum meanwhile had 1 more boy with an abusive man and she kept him he's since turned out to be much like me only 5 yrs younger. Got bullied in secondary school just because I was easy to pick on and maybe too loud and annoying sometimes but was still sort of part of the popular group, just the one they sometimes beat up and teased.
I'm 21 now and went through a phase of beating up my dad breaking him down mentally in fits of rage but that's the only person I have that kind of anger with. Anyways, Went out with a guy who I now think has socio tendencies and he broke my heart when I realised 2 years in that he had been cheating on me the whole time almost monthly sometimes weekly yet pretending V V convincingly to be a loving boyfriend.
You wouldn't believe the lies and lengths he went to. Cried like a child the first time I caught him out or at least tried don't think I saw tears then when I broke up with him he sent me one hard cold long text with the details of every time he cheated on me. I went into shock and was just glad I'd broken up with him.
I had been insanely pathetically jealous and possessive of him though and even lied about being on the pill for 6months. I've since learned that's an uncool creepy thing to do. Finally made it to college made loads of new friends started increasing my intelligence which I'd missed out on coming from a homely country nanny and dumb dad. Of course I became an alco and a drug abuser just like my dad f'd it all up and had to drop out. Don't know if u can tell from reading all of that if u bothered but I'm nothing like the female socio this site often mentions bpd's to be but I'm still text book perfect example of one so if u want to get a diagnosis go to professionals both private and public not online forums.
Should mention my bro who is just like me prob gets his personality from not growing up with his dad as I didn't with mum and also just from being around my mum she herself has a dif form of bpd I think-the more dark manipulative type.
She also had an eating disorder and smoked occasionally while she was preg with us so that says a lot. I just recently found out my husband has aspd I realize he would need to want the help or else it would be useless. What I'm trying to figure out is if I should leave or go? I love him and want to help him, but I'm so tired of the lies and being hurt emotionaly. I'm just numb at this point, trying to figure out what's tht next step. It is treatable.
All personality disorders are treatable. But there is no medication designed to treat these disorders specifically. It will take years of intense behavior modification and therapy and he will have to be totally committed to treatment and willing to accept that he has a real problem.
If he is stay. If he is not go. He was diagnosed as ASPD and he told you? That is some involved mind play if he did. I would suggest that if you have a healthy regard for others and relatively stable "healthy" emotions get out while you can, don't waste your life. Also read up on Cluster B personality disorders- both the traits of those with them and the average traits of those people who end up in relationships with them.
Find out what it is that made you want this person and still want them now even though you probably know deep down they don't care about you.
Get help and move on. They cannot change fundamentally, no more than you can, though they can easily make you think this if you are naturally trusting of people and find it hard to understand how somebody could act in such an unhuman way. Unless of course you have cluster B personality traits yourself. I was involved with a severe sociopath, manipulative and devious in very subtle and shrewd ways though always blatant to anybody personality disorder or otherwise who can seperate fully emotions from thought whenever necessary.
You know when somebody is being deceitful when they offer information in a discussion you didn't ask for, when they become defensive when you're not attacking them, - or if they present an "emotion" completely in words in a formulaic manner, almost as if from a script. For example everytime somebody with ASPD notices you might be suspcious of their devious manipulation and see you're genuinely upset theyll tell you something like "you're really important to me, I need you in my life" and they may say it in exactly the same way in many different situations.
Also it may sound over the top and disingenous- emotional overkill. Because they've never felt a true emotion their actions may not entirely fit or feel natural to the situation - unless they are extremely intelligent. The best way is to not look at the person saying it.
Often if you love somebody you see their face and you may melt, you then don't rationally interpret the horrible twsited things the person with ASPD is saying. Try doing this during a heated moment, you may find yourself shocked. It may sound like a totally different person. I hope this is not the case as it sounds like a dreadful condition to have. Can you be ASPD and it be unconscious, as you've fooled yourself over the years? Though I can understand what it feels like to truly feel guilt, remorse, shame, joy, sadness, I have done so under very extreme circumstances, it isn't my natural state of affairs.
I generally feel numb and have many different characters that I interchange unconsciously. I do not really care about others peoples welfare- not that I want to hurt them, but I wouldn't consider their feelings when I'm deciding on what I want to do. Though I do not actively manipulate. I have started to worry lately as I've spent more time with this sociopath.
I initially allowed him to manipulate me and went off the rails which I do time to time often on my own and was temporarily vulnerable and played this up to allow him to feel control over me. Once I'd come back round the tables turned as I carried on with the vulnerability even when I wasn't feeling the least bit vulnerable.
It is somewhat amusing to manipulate somebody with ASPD and it is easily done once you know how they operate. It will only ever be a game though. If you have more to get from life then leave him. I am a sociopath magnet, lol, or am I attracted to them I find myself wanting to play his game, while playing my own game to manipulate him back to me Im not sure if hes aware of himself and what he is, but I did tell him I believe he is a sociopath, he did not respond.
I since then have been trying a different approach, telling him I miss him and Im sorry if I disappointed or hurt him Everything is via text, he wont respond, only once to say "happy birthday" which I know was just to fuck with me, lol No response to numerous emotional texts, just happy birthday, lmfao, but not, I really am in pain and miss him so much Start valuing yourself, and please don't refer to yourself as "sick and twisted" - male violence doesn't deserve one more minute of your time in the form of self hatred.
Stay away from men and heal yourself, my best advice to you. Well, my name is Ana. Wrecked complete havok, friends, family, bye bye bye Self-destructive but not only towards myself. Wasn't good enough for me. Had to take everyone down with me. By I dont have real emotions. They simply arent real. IT's all illusions. There's an illusion of the world, always as in my life ever since i was a child.
It's like the dream world, wtv, where everyone is an eternal child, and everyone is good, and there's no evil in the world and tatata. Problem was when having to deal with the real world and people and situations that did not fit into my inner world, it was like a punch to the soul.
I don't remember being happy as a child. I was not mean however I managed to get people in trouble, because if I wanted to really do something, I'd convince everyone to do it, due to the excitment of it being such an awesome idea, and shit would usually hapen. That's what was remotely close to happyness. I wouldn't say I was hypersensitive in my early teens.
It's just Things had to go my way. Or I'd feel like shit about myself. I was a perfeccionist, and a bright kid. And then I started to gain conscience od the world around me. Which I did not have. And I realized I didnt fit. I didnt care about anyone, or anything. I cared about having fun, laughing. My mother has bpd. She controlled my entire life.
Everything I did, she chose what I had to study, what I had to dress, the friends I'd get to have. Which had not particullarly bothered me until I started to have that feeling of isolation. With everyone I was.
Suddenly was as if nothing mattered, nothing was funny, nothing nothing. It was like suddenly I had conscience of that. I needed change, I craved for it and I couldn't have it. I looked at myself in the mirror and it was like staring at someone else. That wasnt me. I had no absolute contact with myself. I had been nothing but a pawn until then. That being being because my mother had been the only person allowed inside my inner world.
To me she wasn't a person she was like this goddess, this perfect being. And suddenly not alone she wasn't perfect, she didnt fit in my world anymore. So I turned on her. Her, my whole family, my 'friends' who werent friends, I had never developed any close relationships with anyone, was just fun and laughter purposesI would kick everyone as far away from me as I could. I wanted to make the world into my world. And if it couldnt, then I'd rather there'd be no world.
Basically I couldnt understand reality as it was, and I ran from it. If I had to I'd die before it got to me.
ADHD and Anti-Social Personality Disorder: Minimizing the Risks
It's like this. We wont, and we get it. And if we dont we'll likely die trying. We get insanelly attached to people. Mostly because the image we construct of them does not match reality.
Reflects our desires. My inner world. I am very subcounscious. I see what I want to see I've managed not to see people in front of me greeting me because I subcounsciously didnt want to. I was for years in a push pull relationship with this guy. He had BPD too. It was not particullarly a good relationship. But I was fucking blind, until he almost destroyed me. Until the point I was crying in a classroom or looking at the computer trying to decide how i'd kill myself of course I told him this xD.
It was good and bad. It was that fire that kept it going. Because I actually felt something. Then again, he would break up with me because he suddenly wanted to go chase someone else, I'd broke up with him for the same reason And we kept getting back. But it was getting harsher everytime. So I decided to quit for good. The Schizo guy. Must have been the person I loved the most in my life.
Because I met him in his narcissistic phase and we were both smoking a lot of weed so all his crazy ideas appeared normal to me. Plus I had this idealization of him where he really was smarter and more awesome than anyone else. The idealization thing. I was in love for months, we lived together, everything fine And then I started to need change again.
Said 'Hey, lets move' he said 'ok'. Then he started to think and think and think and to scare himself out of his brains and one day I called him and he pushed me away saying he thought we should just be friends. Of course by then I had already knew what he'd been doing and that he was going to see someone else, so I just told him all I knew. He couldnt speak anymore xD Well the girl tried like hell to be like me, he manipulated her into it so I won anyway xD Still.
9 Ways to Spot a Sociopath
I suffered like hell. I didnt know that kind of suffering was even possible. Only my parents knew because I had nightmares every night. Woke up crying looking for him in my sleep. No one else knew. Not even him. I hate it when I feel this bad. I hate myself for letting me get this attached to someone.
Borderline Personality Disorder is a mental condition in which people experience reckless and impulsive behavior, unstable moods and relationships. Sociopath is a medical condition that results in a person's way of thinking, relating, dealing with situations and perceiving situations to become destructive. People suffering from this order have a difficulty in distinguishing. I have BPD and I'm attracted to sociopaths. As a person who is affected easily by my environment, it's less stressful to be around someone who isn't. They generally won't respond dramatically to our outbursts either. Another thing about them is th. People who suffer from Borderline Personality Disorder don't have the inner strength to maintain the facade the way the other antisocial personalities do. They will swing from a position of high competence and disdain for others to depression and self .
But on the other hand If I dont, I wont get to go to heaven, and float around in love while the illusion is good. It's more of an egoistic thing, I think. I just paint it pretty. I do it for myself, to make myself feel. Then it's like a drug.
You want more and more and more, and when you dont have it its like the worlds coming to an end. The sociopath. He painted himself as perfect. Completely perfect.
Now we have the good part of this envolvment We want to create the illusion that bad But are also very mistrusting. Especially when we don't pick up any vibes xD He was great with words, touch and lies. I would have fallen except It seemed too programmed, too perfect. So I pretended I had fallen. He started to not care enough to lie that well and forgot what lies he'd told.
His manipulative attempts were too drastic and killed the illusion.
Was a good run though. He'd get me to his side, or at least falling a little into it, but I'd make him fuck up. So the illusion faded. Then he'd come to continue the game, and I'd illude again a little. And so on Until I couldnt illude myself anymore.
May 31, Dating a sociopath, having any type of relationship with a sociopath, is usually a shallow, confusing, one-sided experience. "Having a psychopath [or sociopath] in your life can be an emotionally draining, psychologically debilitating, and sometimes physically harmful experience" (Babiak & Hare, ). Nov 13, Both sociopathy and borderline personality disorder are serious mental illnesses manifesting themselves in aggressive, erratic or harmful behavior. Sociopathy and borderline personality disorder sometimes overlap, and a person suffering from both of them is called a borderline sociopath.9/ Mar 27, A question I've found myself considering is: When the borderline personality is acting, and looking, like a sociopath, is it the case that he or she, in these states, effectively is a sociopath?. It should be noted that behaviors per se are never sociopathic, only the individuals perpetrating them. Sociopathy is a mentality from which antisocial, exploitative behaviors Author: Lovefraud.
Which was a bummer cause now I ain't feeling shit again. Still, this was a good run. Great emotional tjankossencontemporary.coming ahah.
I could feel but not get attached though, what else can a girl ask for? I let people see what I want them to see. If I want to have fun with someone, I'll be seen like the funniest coolest girl ever. If I hate someone, I'll make them hate me. If I want someone to love me, they will. If I want someone to feel sorry for me, they will too.
I test people though first. I show them what they want from me and test them through it. Bate them, watch how they behave, if they're behaviours match each other and the words. How likely will I be to get what I want That sort of thing.
Its kind of like a recently developped defense mechanism. My 2nd We had an intense emotional bond from the start. Were very empathic towards each other.
That's why it felt so bad to let go. Because the odds of that happening again are remote. The socio Well it was the exact opposite.
I couldnt read him so he intrigued me. After realizing I couldnt read him because there really wasnt much in the back to read in the first place Lost interest. Challenge was over.
Sociopath dating a borderline personality
There was nothing there for me to find. I like the finding. And I like emotions. Unconvering other's inconscient mind piece by piece and putting it in front of them. Understanding different heads from mine Preferably deep complex minds. Its more of a challenge. It's how I've been keeping myself busy and emotional. We got conection and understanding with self and others covered. And I think I've took a big step here towards emotional control.
Individuals with personality disorders, regardless of the type have interpersonal difficulties. Relating to others in a healthy consistent manner is problematic for them. However, I'd like to touch on two personality disorders that particularly for women are sometimes confused - borderline personality disorder and psychopathy. Borderline here who dated a Sociopath. I would describe myself as being on the low end of the borderline scale. I don't manipulate and rage but when I get too close to people, I start to pick fights. The main borderline trait I have is the fear of abandonment. If someone breaks up with me, I go a bit nutty and chase after them and threaten suicide.
Cause its like cats, its a strong, rapid emotional impulse and it escalades like hell and it usually takes you. I compare myself to a boat in the sea. The tide is calm. Most of the time. Until you get bored like crap and want to stirr it. And when it stirrs, from all the calmness, the waves hit the boat like a fucking tsunami and destroy you. At least they do at first. From there you either apply your amazing manipulative capacities on your self or keep having identity crisis and having to rebuild the boat over and over again.
You need to maintain the inner struture of the boat intact. And you cant do it because you provoke tsunamis, by incresing the illusion infinetely. You can adjust your sails, morphing yourself a little to the tide But you cant let the tide take you. You can stirr the water and you should. But only to a level you can handle. That's all for my conclusions after all these years. It's been crap. But I'm going to fucking make this disease an impulse forwards instead of an endless loop.
I know I have the ability to. Just have to oblige myself to, instead of trying to change the world and others, trying to change the mind of the inner raw me. I'm trying to make sense of all my past and dealing with all the shit I should have dealt with these years, creating a rational positive though regarding it in my head and dogmatizng it and never thinkking about it anymore.
And next challenge.
Next step. Always forward.
And never forgetting all about it and get blinded by the moment. I ordered a love spell and before it was completed, I heard from my husband. He called me wanting to see me.
I spent the day with him today, which was great. Thanks Dr. Yes I got my lover back through Dr. My wife left me six months ago. At first, I blamed her for leaving. In fact, I slapped Scripture on her, trying to guilt-induce her any way I could. My anger only pushed her farther away. My wife gave me chance after chance, and I ignored her.
I contacted Dr. Abu and within a few minutes of speaking with him, I realized that Dr.
Abu was the one person whom I could completely trust. Within 48 hours, My wife is back in my life. Abu again for further work in the future. You can contact him on Ominighospelltemple gamil. This article is a hilarious misconception I can't believe what I just read. You are referring to one v specific borderline when you say female socio.
Actually often they have huge empathy both cognitive and physical and have v few narcissistic qualities at all. I have e borderline type triple checked diagnosis for 2 years now and I can tell you I am the farthest thing from a female socio you will get. I'm nowhere near adequate enough for that haha if you met me you'd understand straight away.
Borderline has many many subtypes and to say its on the lacking empathy spectrum alone is a mistake. I believe what was meant by this article and in general the notion of Borderline as the female presentation of psychopathy or sociopathy is that there is a small but distinct percentage of female borderlines that are also psychopaths.
Very little research has been conducted to determine the validity of this hypothesis, however, and in fact I am currently conducting such research at the psychiatric hospital where I work. Such assumptions must be supported with empirical data if we are to know the truth. One of the hallmarks of BPD is the shifting of mindsets over time with a denial of previous mindsets at the time one is dominant.
This is called identity diffusion In the case of the BPD, these are described in Deconstructive Dynamic Psychotherapy a psychodynamic, evidence-based treatment for BPD as the guilty perpetrator mode I'm bad and beyond redemption.
No one should care about me or help me. In this fourth mode, borderlines are emotionally detached, engage in self-soothing behaviors, and often take advantage of others egocentrically.
In this state of mind they do resemble sociopaths. But it is not the presence or absence of these traits that defines the disorder, but the rapid and sudden shifting from mode to the other. Sociopaths have more stability to their personality traits, rather than shifting from one to the next in response to interpersonal triggers. Thats just different mindsets of the SAME stream of person.
You people need to take a good read of the European diagnostic manual and understand it before you talk about bpd. You need to take the term e into the equation too!!
Cluster b personalities are "dramatic personalities" too not "lacking emotion". Bpd can swing either way. Same Day Payday Loans.
I still have such a long road, but I truly think I hurt myself and others less, because I now try to focus most of my energies on mimicking Jesus, praying, church, reading the Bible, apologetics, etc.
I think it's great that you gave yourself to Jesus and that your symptoms seem very manageable. I will pray for you.

I started reading more blogs on sociopath world I've noticed theirs a possibility that I could have border line personality disorder.
I was diagnosed with seasonal depression and dysthymia in the past. My current diagnoses is major depression and generalized anxiety disorder. I've taken verity of medications to help with depression even ones that are used for other health problems that has shown to help depression. Most of my family members I have shut out of my life since I don't have time for their drama or favors they ask for and don't seem to return.
I give people a few chances to make a effort to make a relationship unless I see a benefit I could find useful. For the friends I do have we have a mutual problems or experience that we bond over but sometimes their just understanding. I have changed my personality in order to get to know someone, fitting with other people or being unnoticed for I wont be bothered.
I started joining sports for I could be healthier then changed to getting fit. I was obsessed about losing weight to the point of counting or restricting my calorie in take then burning the calories I consumed. I've had several health problems because I wasn't eating enough or working out to much over the years.
I'm pretty sure my eating disorder is going to control me though out my life. Latter in my life I became more impulsive and haven't made the best decisions without thinking the of consequences they could have. They often feel victimized and will turn into a vicious persecutor at the drop of a hat.
Because they personalize almost everything anyone else does or says, it is difficult to know how they are receiving what you are saying to them or doing with them. This also leads to a fair amount of paranoia. They are very concerned about what others think about them and often believe others do not like them.
In some ways, they often can look like the reverse of a narcissist in that they can be very sloppy in their dress and have poor body hygiene. One of the difficulties in identifying the borderline personality is that they can appear very different in public than in private. Psychopaths always have this symptom, however, which is what makes them especially dangerous.
People with ASP find it hard to form emotional bonds, so their relationships are often unstable and chaotic, says Dr. Rather than forge connections with the people in their lives, they might try to exploit them for their own benefit through deceit, coercion, and intimidation.
Sociopaths tend to try to seduce and ingratiate themselves with the people around them for their own gain, or for entertainment. Sociopaths have a reputation for being dishonest and deceitful. They often feel comfortable lying to get their own way, or to get themselves out of trouble.
They also have a tendency to embellish the truth when it suits them. Some might be openly violent and aggressive. Others will cut you down verbally. Either way, people with ASP tend to show a cruel disregard for other people's feelings. Sociopaths are not only hostile themselves, but they're more likely to interpret others' behavior as hostile, which drives them to seek revenge. Another sign that someone might have ASP is a disregard for financial and social obligations.
Ignoring responsibilities is extremely common, says Dr.
