Sociopath - Disguised As An Angel
Sociopaths have an abnormal emotional life.
Sociopaths are experts in putting up a facade. They care about superficial appearances, more often wanting to appear as a successful winning person.
What exactly is a sociopath?
Back to my university days, one of my favorite subjects was Psychology-the science that deals with mental processes and behavior. It deals with the emotional and behavioral characteristics of an individual and one of the most interesting parts of that course is the analysis of a sociopath.
I am not a psychologist or an expert in this field but right after reading the book, “The Sociopath Next Door” by Martha Stout, my interest on the subject emerged, considering the fact that I know someone who’s been a victim of a sociopath and yet had chosen to live with it for the love of it. Stupid, you may say? It happens. What’s the saying again, “Love is blind”? Is it really blind? Perhaps, it is but I believed the lover is not. This may sound harsh but I think it is dumb.
Now, what exactly is a sociopath? It may seem difficult to identify a sociopath, especially if he or she happens to be your partner. Sociopaths do not become sociopaths overnight. They have a history. They have quite a story that doesn't add up. They are full of lies.
All sociopaths excel at deception.They are immoral imbeciles, who do not discover their conscience. They have to be treated and dealt with as early as possible to avoid necessary turmoil in the lives of people related to them.
They are superficially charming and capable of devious manipulations. They are not normal people who make bad moral choices. Sociopaths have an abnormal emotional life. These people are known to be great actors and can mimic very well, especially the more intelligent ones. However, deep beneath this is a secret fear/knowledge of their utter unimportance/worthlessness.
These con artists exactly know how to dance to the rhythm. They overwhelm you with high praises and regards, attention and concern. The most vulnerable are the lonely ones looking for love.
They are toxic and simply without guilt, exploitative, excellent at finding people’s emotional vulnerabilities and working them. Sociopaths live in the moment because they have no loving human connections that give everyone else a sense of continuity of person and purpose. They strategically take you away from the people who loves you, particularly from your family and from those who show suspicions until there's only the two of you. So, what does a sociopath want? It's not really to love you but to win you, no more no less.
"Sociopaths often know how to make others believe they are the victim while actually being the aggressor." ~

A poem about a con artist- a person who swindles by means of deception. They exploit the confidence of their victim and like a catfish, they are ferocious and can become a major alien pest in the pond.
Did you find this article helpful in detecting a sociopath?
To sum it up, sociopaths are plain dupes. They dramatically fool you and drain you out as a person, emotionally, physically and financially.
Don’t be a fool. If you think you are in this kind of situation, take a step back. It may be hard to recognize a sociopath, especially when you're in a relationship with this person but don't be blinded by your emotions. Reflect on your own loving connections and remember that there is a reason why your brain is placed on top before your heart. ~CrisSp
