Most people accept that others have rights and obligations. The sociopath rejects this advantage. As far as he/she is concerned, only she is right. People have no rights and she/he the sociopath, has no obligations that derive from the "social contract". The sociopath holds herself to be above the law.
The sociopath wants everything and wants it now. Her whims, urges, catering to her needs, and the satisfaction of she drives take precedence over the needs, preferences, and emotions of even her
nearest and dearest.
Consequently, sociopaths feel no remorse when they hurt or defraud others. They don't possess even the most rudimentary conscience. They rationalize their (often criminal) behavior and intellectualize it. Sociopaths fall prey to their own primitive defense mechanisms (such as narcissism, splitting, and projection). The sociopath firmly believes that the world is a hostile, merciless place, prone to the survival of the fittest and that people are either "all good" or "all evil". The sociopath projects her own vulnerabilities, weaknesses, and shortcomings unto others and forces them to behave the way she expects them to (this defense mechanism is known as "projective identification"). All SOCIOPATHS are abusively exploitative and incapable of true love or intimacy.
Sociopathic Personality Disorder is a life-long pattern of traits and behaviors which signify infatuation and obsession with "winning at all cost" no matter the feelings of others and the egotistic and ruthless pursuit of one's gratification, dominance, and ambition. A sociopath possesses pathological narcissism which is maladaptive, rigid, persisting, and causes significant distress and functional impairment. Sociopaths are always in conflict with someone, especially authority figures. Sociopaths possess a limited time horizon and rarely (almost NEVER) make long term plans. They are impulsive, reckless, unreliable, aggressive, violent, irritable, and, sometimes, believe the possess magical power. Believing themselves to be immune to the consequences of their own actions..
Sociopaths often end up in jail, having repeatedly disregard of social norms and laws. Partly to avoid this fate, the sociopath will evade the law and target unsuspecting victims for money, material items and whatever else they "think" they are entitled to, through manipulation.
SOCIOPATHS HABITUALLY LIE! They STEAL OTHERS' IDENTITIES, DECEIVE, USE ALIASES and CON for "Personal profit or Pleasure."
Psychopaths AND Sociopaths are the most hateful and vindictive of all people. They hold grudges. They never REGRET what they do to others, or forget what they do, or what others do to them (usually in retaliation or revenge against the sociopath)
They are driven, and dangerous.
