Can communicate deeply
Psychopaths and sociopaths have little or no ability to empathize. Psychopaths are in general emotionally detached, but they can be seen as charming or trustworthy.
-1 PSYCHO -1 SOCIO
Focuses on self-expression and discovery
Psychopaths are interested in learning and expanding, and sociopaths are emotionally driven. These are both correlations.
+1 PSYCHO +1 SOCIO
Always looking for ways to make things better
There are no correlations between this and either psychopathy or sociopathy. It contradicts sociopathy’s disregard for the consequences of their actions. It also contradicts APD’s lack of guilt, disregard for others, and violent tendencies.
-3 APD -1 SOCIO
Wants to lead through action
An action-oriented leader is a contradiction with APD’s irresponsibility. It correlates, however, with sociopathy’s spontaneity.
-1 APD +1 SOCIO
Wants to fix the world
Psychopaths can completely detach themselves from emotion, and therefore not care about the state of the world because it’s beneath them. APD doesn’t plan ahead and has no regard for others. Sociopaths don’t care about the consequences of their actions, so they aren’t concerned about what havoc they may cause.
-1 PSYCHO -2 APD -1 SOCIO
Unmotivated until convicted ~ then unstoppable
This is a little bit of a contradiction in itself. Psychopaths have trouble forming emotions, which correlates with the first part because it’s difficult for them to become motivated. Sociopaths, on the other hand, are driven by emotion. They also have little regard to risk, which might correlate with INFPs’ drive once they are motivated.
+1 PSYCHO +2 SOCIO
Adores people like them
Psychopaths don’t do emotions, so they won’t be “adoring” anything or anyone. However, it correlates with sociopaths, who have trouble connecting with people but can empathize with the few they do form an attachment with.
-1 PSYCH +1 SOCIO
Shuts themselves off to the world if it doesn’t interest them
This apathy is similar to psychopaths’ and sociopaths’ lack of attachment. It also correlates with sociopaths’ inability to maintain a job or family.
+1 PSYCHO +2 SOCIO
Focuses on the intention rather than the consequences
This contradicts APD’s deception and manipulation, as well as its lack of remorse and guilt. It contradicts sociopathy’s lack of regard for the consequences of its actions.
-2 APD -1 SOCIO
This correlates with psychopaths’ charm.
Correlation to APD adds up to -8. The final count stands as:
