Patient

Psychopaths are very calm and confident, which correlates with patience. APD tends to include impulsiveness, aggression, and violence, which do not point to a patient person. Sociopathy is also impulsive, as well as easily angered.

Tirelessly dedicated

Psychopaths and sociopaths cannot form attachments very easily, and therefore are not very dedicated. Sociopaths also have trouble maintaining jobs and family.

Not risky

Overly sensitive
