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.

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.

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

Inspirational

This correlates with psychopaths’ charm.

+1 PSYCHO

Correlation to APD adds up to -8. The final count stands as:

-7 Psychopathic
-5 Sociopathic
