A psychopath has a personality disorder characterized by anti-social behaviour. They show no empathy towards others and are usually bold, disinhibited and have egotistical traits. You might not know one if he or she were looking you in the face. On the average, you walk past seven psychopaths a day. Could you be one of them?
Do you ever make plans or have a regular schedule that you follow? Psychopaths in general don't. They're more the spur-of-the-moment type of persons, changing directions on the spot whenever it's desired.
Psychopaths love to cheat on their mates. They even think it's okay as long as they don't get caught and go all out, covering their asses with alibies and excuses, resorting sometimes to down out and out lying...
Are you a leader, persuasive and can easily get other people to do what you want, no matter how many toes you have to step on to get ahead? If they get hurt in the process, it's their problem and has nothing to do with you. In fact, you might think they deserved it.
Do you feel empathy, for an animal that's in distress, suffering and in pain? How about a child? Or an elderly person? Do you even have that emotion called empathy? Do you know what it feels like to feel for someone else's plight?
Can you answer this question? It's called the 'Funeral Question.' With this one question psychologists can determine if you are a psychopath or not. Of course, this is just playing and in actuality, the Funeral Question is an urban myth. Psychologists would ask an array of in-depth questions. One question wouldn't work, because there are too many variables. But here it is anyway, the Funeral Question.
A young girl was standing beside her mother's casket at her funeral, when she looked over and saw a man standing on the other side of the casket. She didn't recognize him but was very attracted to him, and instantly fell in love with him. She could have kicked herself for not getting his phone number when she had the chance, now he had gone. A few days later the young girl killed her sister. Can you tell me why?
The correct response; the girl killed her sister so the man would come to her funeral and the girl could hook-up with him, or at least they could meet.
If you thought of this answer then you might be a psychopath. Most serial killers and rapists would say the same thing. Sorry!
If I were you, I'd get myself checked by a psychologist and you better hurry! You may be a psychopath.
