The Sociopath Next Door

9 thoughts on “The Sociopath Next Door”

  1. Content is thought provoking. Do sociopaths have common traits that foster specific professions, diets, clothing, etc.? Agree that reasoning with a sociopath is not the answer. Thank you again, Deb!

    1. Good question, Susan. The common traits she listed were the pity play, acting ability, and charm. She didn’t mention specific professions, but talked a little about their ability to survive in organizations–“A sociopath who is hiding out in an organization can have his or her tracks hidden indefinitely by just one or two normal individuals who have made the mistake of consummating their attraction to this charmingly dangerous person.” She also said that the perpetually irresponsible person who won’t work, doesn’t keep a job, and expects other people to support him/her could be a sociopath. That’s a part of the game–manipulating other people to take on responsibilities for him/her.

  2. Deb,

    Have a blessed day,

What Do You Want To Be: Healthy or Whole?
