Sociopathic tendencies revealed in every day life?

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by Cuddles, Jul 14, 2011.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Last night I was watching that documentary on the Camorra in Naples. Who make the Sicilian mafia look like a bunch of bauchling teuchters and who have a thoroughly deserved reputation for casual brutality.

    One of their current nasty scams is fly-tipping of dioxin rich rubbish on an industrial scale across Southern Italy. The dioxins are leaching into the water table and causing drinking water to be contaminated to dangerous levels - 80 times the safe level! Between this fact being mentioned and a Camorra don's comment that he didn't mind, they drank mineral water, I had already thought to myself "Tough for the locals, but if I was in the Camorra I would be taking over the mineral water concessions..."

    The trouble is, I have noticed i think like this all the time. I even find myself having to "remember" appropriate responses to news like hatches, matches and dispatches. You do not want to get those mixed up. That old FBI chestnut about the girl murdering her sister after meeting a handsome cousin at a funeral - I had answered that one before the question was finished...

    Is there an online psychopath test? One that doesn't cause a flag to be raised in Scotland Yard or Quantico that is??
  2. yes

    no idea?????
  3. Yes, its called arrse and if you even so much as smile at some of the comments in this forum you are a confirmed psycho, but we all knew that about you anyway Cuds old chap. :)
  4. I watched the documentary also, as I was in Naples a few weeks ago.

    The bit at the end made me chuckle, when the bird with the gegs said that "without the Camorra, Naples would be the most beautiful city"

    Will it fuck! It's a fucking shit hole!
  5. This is the one I use.

    Test for Psychopathy.

    For each of the 20 characteristics, give a score of 0 if it does not apply, 1 if it applies partially and 2 if it is a perfect match.

    1 Glib and Superficial Charm The tendency to be smooth, engaging, charming, slick, and verbally facile. Psychopathic charm is not in the least shy, self-conscious, or afraid to say anything. A psychopath never gets tongue-tied. They have freed themselves from the social conventions about taking turns in talking, for example.

    2 Grandiose Self-Worth A grossly inflated view of one's abilities and self-worth, self-assured, opinionated, cocky, a braggart. Psychopaths are arrogant people who believe they are superior human beings.

    3 Need for Stimulation or Proneness to Boredom An excessive need for novel, thrilling, and exciting stimulation; taking chances and doing things that are risky. Psychopaths often have a low self-discipline in carrying tasks through to completion because they get bored easily. They fail to work at the same job for any length of time, for example, or to finish tasks that they consider dull or routine.

    4 Pathological Lying Can be moderate or high; in moderate form, they will be shrewd, crafty, cunning, sly, and clever; in extreme form, they will be deceptive, deceitful, underhanded, unscrupulous, manipulative, and dishonest.

    5 Conning and Manipulativeness The use of deceit and deception to cheat, con, or defraud others for personal gain; distinguished from Item #4 in the degree to which exploitation and callous ruthlessness is present, as reflected in a lack of concern for the feelings and suffering of one's victims.

    6 Lack of Remorse or Guilt A lack of feelings or concern for the losses, pain, and suffering of victims; a tendency to be unconcerned, dispassionate, coldhearted, and unempathic. This item is usually demonstrated by a disdain for one's victims.

    7 Shallow Affect Emotional poverty or a limited range or depth of feelings; interpersonal coldness in spite of signs of open gregariousness.

    8 Callousness and Lack of Empathy A lack of feelings toward people in general; cold, contemptuous, inconsiderate, and tactless.

    9 Parasitic Lifestyle An intentional, manipulative, selfish, and exploitative financial dependence on others as reflected in a lack of motivation, low self-discipline, and inability to begin or complete responsibilities.

    10 Poor Behavioral Controls Expressions of irritability, annoyance, impatience, threats, aggression, and verbal abuse; inadequate control of anger and temper; acting hastily.

    11 Promiscuous Sexual Behavior A variety of brief, superficial relations, numerous affairs, and an indiscriminate selection of sexual partners; the maintenance of several relationships at the same time; a history of attempts to sexually coerce others into sexual activity or taking great pride at discussing sexual exploits or conquests.

    12 Early Behavior Problems A variety of behaviors prior to age 13, including lying, theft, cheating, vandalism, bullying, sexual activity, fire-setting, glue-sniffing, alcohol use, and running away from home.

    13 Lack of Realistic,Long-Term Goals an inability or persistent failure to develop and execute long-term plans and goals; a nomadic existence, aimless, lacking direction in life.

    14 Impulsivity The occurrence of behaviors that are unpremeditated and lack reflection or planning; inability to resist temptation, frustrations, and urges; a lack of deliberation without considering the consequences; foolhardy, rash, unpredictable, erratic, and reckless.

    15 Irresponsibility Repeated failure to fulfill or honor obligations and commitments; such as not paying bills, defaulting on loans, performing sloppy work, being absent or late to work, failing to honor contractual agreements.

    16 Failure to Accept Responsibility for Own Actions A failure to accept responsibility for one's actions reflected in low conscientiousness, an absence of dutifulness, antagonistic manipulation, denial of responsibility, and an effort to manipulate others through this denial.

    17 Many Short-Term Marital Relationships A lack of commitment to a long-term relationship reflected in inconsistent, undependable, and unreliable commitments in life, including marital.

    18 Juvenile Delinquency Behavior problems between the ages of 13-18; mostly behaviors that are crimes or clearly involve aspects of antagonism, exploitation, aggression, manipulation, or a callous, ruthless tough-mindedness.

    19 Revocation of Condition Release A revocation of probation or other conditional release due to technical violations, such as carelessness, low deliberation, or failing to appear.

    20 Criminal Versatility A diversity of types of criminal offenses, regardless if the person has been arrested or convicted for them; taking great pride at getting away with crimes.

  6. doubt that you are a psychopath... for instance wheres the immediate payoff for you in being an arrser ?

    you might be conditioned to think suspiciously, or tactically , but that does not make you a psychopath. For your reassurance many top businessmen test at high levels for aspects of psycopathy , but would not be clinically labelled as psychopaths.
  7. I'm going to kill you for that. Then lie about it.

  8. That is not reassuring vaanmaaan...not in the slightest. However I will try and pretend it is and to allay suspiciions, i will talk glibly and loudly about my planned paragliding trip...
  9. Topical but that test applied to the NI faces would score highly methinks.
  10. psycho walt !
  11. Is a score of 25 good or bad? Just asking, like....
  12. That's easy. Catharsis. In voiding one's sociopathic impulses (however briefly and superficially) online, the creative and committed manipulative arsehole finds it that much easier to assume the mask of normality in real life.

    Therefore, ARRSE encourages and facilitates sociopathic behaviour.

    I failed that one. "I couldn't give a flying fuck". "The joy of a tight splatter pattern". "An uncontrollable urge to bang her twitching jaxie before it cooled" were not on the list of responses it would seem.
