Infamous Psychopaths


Here is a list of behaviors and characteristic traits that are common with psychopaths:

  • glibness/superficial charm
  • intense sense of self worth
  • pathological lying
  • easily bored
  • lack of remorse or guilt
  • manipulative/persuasive
  • emotionally shallow
  • lack of empathy
  • poor control of behavior
  • parasitic lifestyle
  • early behavior issues as a child
  • promiscuous sexual behavior
  • impulsiveness
  • lack of long term realistic goals
  • failure to accept responsibility for themselves
  • overbearing irresponsibility
  • short term relationships
  • criminal versatility
  • juvenile delinquency

Psychopaths use their charm in order to lure their victims into situations where they can use them for their own pleasure whether it be to get ahead in life or to kill them.

They are extremely self-centered and only look out for their own needs.  They never question how another person might feel about the way they are acting or using that person.

They are prone to boredom and must always be stimulated. This is a good reason as to why they sometimes murder others.

Psychopaths obtain psychological gratification by using and abusing others sexually, criminally, and/or emotinally.
