where you fall on the psychopath spectrum.

Recommended Posts

12%

You are warm and empathic with a heightened awareness of social responsibility and a strong sense of conscience. You like to carefully weigh up the pros and cons of a situation before you act and are generally averse to taking risks. You are very much a ‘people person’ and dislike conflict. ‘Do unto others…’ are your watchwords. But, although you avoid hurting others, those residing at the higher end of the psychopathic spectrum might not be as considerate, so stay vigilant to avoid being hurt unnecessarily.

**Joins gofish - same percentage.** I wonder why. How much of the rating skews it....?

 

It says this about it, though, in case you didn't click for more info...

About the psychopathic spectrum

 

When most people think of psychopaths, Hannibal Lecter typically springs to mind! But actually, being psychopathic doesn't necessarily mean that you're a serial killer – or even that you'll break the law.

Some of us may score higher on some psychopathic traits than on others. But unless you score high on all of them, you don't really have anything to worry about! Another misconception about psychopaths concerns diagnosis. A lot of people think that you're either a psychopath or you're not, that it's all very black and white. But there is evidence to suggest that it's not as clear-cut as this. In fact, psychopathy – like height and weight, for example – lies on a spectrum.

This test is not a diagnostic tool nor is it psychometrically validated. It cannot be used to clinically diagnose psychopathic personality or any mental illness.

Within the framework of clinical psychology, a psychopath is someone with a distinct cluster of personality traits including ruthlessness, fearlessness, narcissism, charm, charisma, impulsivity, persuasiveness, manipulation and a lack of conscience and empathy. Sure, these traits may well come in handy if you aspire to be an axe-murderer! But they can also come in handy in the courtroom, on the trading floor, or in the operating theatre. It just depends on what else you've got going on in your personality, and the start you get in life.

At the sharp end you may well find your serial killers and axe murderers but, all of us have our place at some point along the continuum.

YOUR

SCORE 52%

Though your conscience is in the right place you also have a pragmatic streak and generally aren’t afraid to do your own dirty work! You’re no shrinking violet - but no daredevil either. You generally have little trouble seeing things from another person’s perspective but, at the same time, are no pushover. ‘Everything in moderation – including moderation’ might sum up your approach to life.

Interesting.. I got 33%..

 

But what I found interesting is that sure some egomaniac types would score higher.. but also those that we depend on like firefighters and police. (some of whom also are an egomaniac type) but most also shut down the emotions in a panic situation and deal with what's going on.

"Tests" like these USED to be fun........................but not so much any more. :blush:

 

With Obama moving to make "mental status" a condition for removing Second Amendment RIGHTS combined with NSA spying, I'm afraid the Fifth Amendment protection of NOT testifying against yourself would become null and void, and these 'fun' quizzes would "be used against you in a court of law."

 

Sorry for the buzz-kill :sorry: .......................not trying to be a party-pooper :tinfoilhatsmile: .....................just protecting myself FROM my own government!!! :blink:
