Psychopaths: It’s What You Can’t See

This is a graphically altered photograph of someone who exhibits Psychopathology but admits more to being Sociopathic.

The Ultimate Creepy: Psychopaths; Reality twisted.

Psychopathic Personality Disorder (often included with Sociopathic Personality traits for simplicity sake) is one of those disorders that although distinguished by unique symptoms or traits is on a sliding continuum. This means that some people are less symptomatic from the traits of the disorder. Conversely, another person will be a  full-blown severely symptomatic person who demonstrates all features at the most severe point.

Psychopaths are unable to form emotional attachments or feel real empathy for others. They are sometimes well educated and hold steady jobs or, at least, appear to be. It is believed that true Psychopathy is the result of “Nature” (genetics). Although the less severe cases are now being thought of as a result of dysfunctional “nurturing.”

Psychopaths can have disarming or even charming personalities. They are very manipulative and easily gain people’s trust due to their excellent ability to demonstrate false but very charismatic personalities. They learn to mimic emotions, despite their inability to feel them and will appear normal to unsuspecting people.

Some psychopaths are so good at manipulation and mimicry that they have families and other long-term relationships without those around them ever suspecting their true nature.

For me, the idea that a person, especially a person that you care about and openly trust isn’t at all the person you believe them to be is the ultimate in “creepy.” It goes beyond creepy into twisting your entire sense of reality.

The psychopath’s psychopathology can be so intrusive as to cause you to harbour some psychopathology. Now that is creepy.
