Your personality profile is Se-Pr-Mo-Em-En/Ti-Hn-Ls-Ad-Sp-As.

You can't really create a true test (as in a questionnaire like this which must necessarily regard the answers as honest) for psychopathy... Sometimes acting is so second nature that lying on a test isn't given a thought. Hell, a lot of people either lie about themselves on tests, even if they are the only ones to see the answers, or just aren't an accurate judge of their own character. A lot of the questions on this were pretty subjective... until you are put in the situation, it's pretty hard be certain that you would die for someone or not take dirty money if you really needed it (for example, how many people honestly check if their clothes were made in sweat shops). Survival is a pretty strong motivator,,, if it wasn't one of our primary extincts, our species would be doomed. It's also hard to make accurate judgements on anything of psychological permanence until the neuropathways are entirely developed and hormones are regulated (past puberty).

Would the individual himself be aware of it? Doubt that.

Nice use of Hannibal in the OP, but if you watch the prequel "Hannibal" then you'd see how one operates without raising suspicion. The worst psychos are the ones you never know about.

Spotting a sociopath is hard but it can be done. It might take a few encounters to figure it out though. Sociopaths lack a lot of basic emotions. They can't form bonds with others and have no interest in doing so. They get bored really easily and need constant stimuli. Nothing is worse than a bored sociopath because their form of entertainment would make others cringe.

If you see someone constantly put themselves in harms way without caring for their own safety they might be a sociopath. They lack the basic self preservation instinct.

If they constantly talk about what they would do wrong if they found themselves in certain hypothetical situations they might be a sociopath. IE "I'd nuke them" "If I ever got super powers the world better look out" "Wouldn't it be cool if you could control other peoples minds? You could make them jump off cliffs and stuff"

If they try to hurt you one minute but are really nice to you the next making you say WTF they might be a sociopath. Sociopaths use people as they see fit so hurting you one minute and being nice to you the next in order to achieve some goal of theirs would sound normal to them.

If all they ever talk about is winning or wanting to win they might be a sociopath.

No I'm not a doctor but yes I've had a few run ins with sociopaths.

A lot of my friends are taking psychology in college, as I did myself and we learnt about 'psychopaths'. All of them just looked at me and said "He's one".

You can tell by the fact that they're breathing.

The humans you meet who aren't breathing, are simply the dead psychos.

In regards to this topic.... There is no consensus about the symptom criteria.
