  •  ...they aren't incapable of choosing paths... (3+ / 0-)

    ...or choosing what to do. They are incapable of having any feelings for others THEREFORE the choices they make NEVER take how others may be affected into account.

    And if they then see others being harmed by their actions, they don't care a bit. They don't have any capacity for empathy. Seeing others suffer as a result of the actions a sociopath takes is no different to the sociopath than reading a story in a book or watching a movie. They have as much connection to flesh and blood people as they do to a made-up character in a book...which is to say no connection.

    To see how they affect others, however, makes a sociopaths ego swell with pride because it makes them feel powerful...

    Ignorance is bliss only for the ignorant. The rest of us must suffer the consequences. -7.38; -3.44
