Are You a Sociopath or a Psychopath? Find Out Now!
Last Updated on 1 year by Iva Ursano
Oh this was a fun online quiz to take! I gotta admit, I was super excited when I found this one. To be perfectly honest, any quiz that says “are you a sociopath” or “are you a…whatever”, I’m all over it.
I already know if I am or not but I like to take these quizzes to see what they tell me. Ironically enough, I find the results usually to be pretty accurate. Usually. Some of them are way off!!
Are you a sociopath?
I’m hoping you probably already know whether you are or aren’t one. I hope. I think many of us don’t actually even know the difference between a psychopath and a sociopath so I did some research for you (so you wouldn’t have to look it up for yourself) and this is what I found.
This really clears up the definition for us:
A key difference between a psychopath and a sociopath is whether he has a conscience, the little voice inside that lets us know when we’re doing something wrong, says L. Michael Tompkins, EdD.
He’s a psychologist at the Sacramento County Mental Health Treatment Center.
A psychopath doesn’t have a conscience. If he lies to you so he can steal your money, he won’t feel any moral qualms, though he may pretend to. He may observe others and then act the way they do so he’s not “found out,” Tompkins says.
A sociopath typically has a conscience, but it’s weak. He may know that taking your money is wrong, and he might feel some guilt or remorse, but that won’t stop his behavior.
Both lack empathy, the ability to stand in someone else’s shoes and understand how they feel. But a psychopath has less regard for others, says Aaron Kipnis, PhD, author of The Midas Complex. Someone with this personality type sees others as objects he can use for his own benefit.
My results for the psychopath quiz
So I”m pretty sure I’m neither a psychopath or a sociopath but after taking this sociopath quiz, here are my results.
You are…a psychopath
Psychopaths are basically crazy people in disguise. They dress well, look and act like a regular human, but underneath their facade, they’re actually insane. They have learned to mimic human emotions and have learned to manipulate humans with charm and wit.
Haha!! Guess my ex was right after all. I am a psychopath!
Ok really I’m not.

Thank you Iva,
I read one of your affirmations and the history of the courageous change you made in your life’s path. You are far away but it seemed like I “felt” you. I have been struggling. I enjoyed a fascinating and rewarding career as a Nurse Practitioner. (38 years). I met the love of my life in the late 1970’s. I have been and am well loved.
I was diagnosed with a rare but treatable bone marrow cancer in July 2017. I take oral Chemotherapy and will always require it. I have been anxious and depressed. I spend hours in my darkened bedroom each day letting the TV distract me from the confusion I feel about ending my career completely, aging, mortality and wondering where my strength and courage is.
So, I will send you this message and return to your powerful website. I look forward to learning more from you.
Thank you for your caring and helpful spirit,
Thank you so much Patty and I wish you healing, love and strength in this dark time xoxoxox
Finally, someone got it right.
No, seriously, I have worked in the field of psychology and know how to answer questions to fit my need…or sense of humor. The job actually helped me learn to identify the REAL psychos out there.
