Wide range of interest
This is a direct correlation to psychopaths’ desire to learn.
Lives in the moment
Psychopaths plan things very carefully and observe all the angles, which doesn’t work well for those who are in the here and now. People with APD and sociopaths are impulsive, which correlates. Sociopaths are also similar in that they are spontaneous and don’t think about the risk or consequences of their actions.
-1 PSYCHO +1 APD +3 SOCIO
ESTPs will tell it how it is. This is similar to APD’s lack of remorse, and sociopaths’ lack of regard for the consequences of their actions.
+1 APD +1 SOCIO
This correlates to psychopaths’ charming masquerade.
This is a direct correlation with APD’s violent and aggressive tendencies. It contradicts the psychopathic tendency to avoid risk to oneself. It also correlates with sociopathic recklessness, lack of regard for consequences, and emotional influence.
-1 PSYCHO +2 APD +3 SOCIO
Doesn’t care what others think
This correlates with psychopaths’ lack of empathy. It can lead to the APD tendency to break the law, or the sociopathic disregard for society.
+1 PSYCHO +1 APD +1 SOCIO
Good at connecting with people
This directly contradicts psychopaths’ lack of empathy and emotion. It also contradicts sociopaths’ difficulty with empathy and inability to maintain a job and family life.
-2 PSYCHO -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
Often displays anger
This directly correlates with the sociopaths’ anger proneness. It also correlates with their emotional influence, their lack of regard for consequence, and their recklessness. It correlates with APD’s aggressive tendencies but contradicts psychopaths’ emotional detachment.
-1 PSYCHO +1 APD +4 SOCIO
This is a direct similarity to sociopaths’ spontaneity.
Enjoys drama, passion, and pleasure
This contradicts psychopathic emotional detachment. It correlates directly with APD’s manipulative side, and may also lead to breaking the law. It also correlates with sociopathic emotional influence and erratic behavior.
-1 PSYCHO +2 APD +2 SOCIO
Psychopaths are learned and explorative intellectually and have an attention to detail. APD people, however, have a disregard for others and don’t feel guilt, which does contradict observation in a way. Sociopaths also have little regard for the consequences of their actions, which is another slight contradiction.
+2 PSYCHO -2 APD -1 SOCIO
Loves to be the center of attention
Those with APD may deceive and manipulate others in order to be noticed.
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.
