Often lazy

This correlates only with APD’s tendency toward irresponsibility.

+1 APD

Confident

This is a direct similarity with psychopaths.

+1 PSYCHO

Insensitive

Psychopaths are both emotionally detached and non-empathic, but they can be charming, which could deceive people to believe that they are sensitive. It correlates with APD in several cases: flouting the law, irresponsibility, lack of remorse, disregard for the rights of others, and deception or manipulation. Sociopaths also have little empathy.

+1 PSYCHO +5 APD +1 SOCIO

Assumptive

Assuming things correlates with sociopaths’ erratic behavior, as they might assume something and go off on it without thinking it through. It also correlates with their emotional influence.

+2 SOCIO

Wants emotional connection

Psychopaths are emotionally detached and have little empathy, nor do they care about such things. Sociopaths, on the other hand, are largely emotion-based.

-2 PSYCHO +1 SOCIO

Brutally honest

ENTPs will tell you what they think without beating around the bush. This is similar to APD’s lack of remorse, and sociopaths’ lack of regard for the consequences of their actions.

+1 APD +1 SOCIO

Can see from others’ perspective

Psychopaths can always see all the possibilities. However, they do have trouble connecting with people. These two traits cancel each other out in this instance.

Truth is truth regardless of its source

If the janitor has a good idea, we celebrate the janitor. This is a contradiction to APD, which disregards the rights of others. It correlates to sociopaths, who have no regard for society’s rules.

-1 APD +1 SOCIO

Experimentation

Psychopaths enjoy learning and adding to their intellectual repertoire. Those with APD might test the limits of the law as part of their experiments. Sociopaths tend to be spontaneous. All of these are correlations.

+1 PSYCHO +1 APD +1 SOCIO

Loves debate

Psychopaths are both knowledgeable on a wide range of subjects and aware of all the possibilities, which would make them good debaters. However, sociopaths and APD sufferers are impulsive and tend not to plan ahead.

+2 PSYCHO -1 APD -1 SOCIO

Feisty

When I say “feisty” in regards to ENTPs, it also includes fun, exciting, and flighty. These are similar with sociopaths’ erratic behavior and spontaneity.

Correlation to APD adds up to 6. The final count stands as:

9 Psychopathic
14 Sociopathic
