Independent

Psychopaths’ confidence would lead them to not need anyone else. Independence also makes a person become perceived as trustworthy, which is another trait psychopaths bear. It is a direct correlation to APD irresponsibility.

Compassionate

Psychopaths do not use their emotions, nor are they good at relationships. Neither are sociopaths. APD has multiple contradictive to compassion: deception or manipulation, violence, and disregard for the safety of others.

Charismatic

This correlates to psychopaths’ charming masquerade.

Emotional

While contradicting psychopaths, emotion correlates very much with sociopathy. The contradictions to psychopathy are emotional detachment and empathy. The lone similarity with APD is impulsiveness; emotion can cause a person to act without thinking. The correlations with sociopathy are impulsiveness, tendency toward agitation, emotional influence directly, and spontaneity.

Craves freedom and creativity

Creativity is a direct correlation with psychopaths’ desire to learn. Freedom is a correlation to APD’s tendency to break the law and sociopathy’s disregard for society’s rules.

Desires leadership

The desire for leadership might cause a person to deceive or manipulate others, but it also doesn’t work with irresponsibility, both APD traits. These cancel each other out.

Flirty and flighty

This is a direct correlation with the APD tendency to manipulate. Psychopaths are calm and confident, which contradicts. Sociopaths are simultaneously easily agitated and have trouble empathizing, which cancels out.

Interested in the connections they make with people

This is a direct contradiction to psychopaths and sociopaths. However, it may correlate with psychopathic charm.

Impatient

Psychopaths are emotionally detached and should therefore be quite patient. APD and sociopathy are impulsive and don’t plan ahead. Sociopathy is also emotionally influenced.

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.

Curious

Psychopaths know a lot, but they also enjoy learning more on their own terms.
