How to Spot a Sociopath | The Daily Beast


Yesterday, while I was watching George Zimmerman’s interview from last year with Sean Hannity, I began asking myself, “How do you spot a sociopath?”

M. E. Thomas describes herself as a cutthroat attorney who sailed through law school without much effort, landed a position at a prestigious law firm, and then became a professor. She also claims to fantasize about murder, drops friends when their personal problems get in the way of her fun, and plots ways to “ruin people” in her spare time. She straddles a fine line between success and failure, with the traits that have gotten her ahead simultaneously contributing to her periodic downfalls…

…In her new book, Confessions of a Sociopath, Thomas, writing under a pseudonym that pokes fun at her narcissism, removes her mask of carefully crafted personality traits in an attempt to prove that sociopathy is not simply a disorder of serial killers but one that exists on a spectrum, plaguing to varying degrees a large portion of successful, apparently well-adjusted people

  1. Thank you Keith…I’ve always wanted to be sure I wasn’t the only one listening to Hannity…is he this generation’s Maury?

    1. Probably so. I rarely listen to him. I have to admit that he gets me riled up. But I am far, far left, so I rarely listen to any of the media on a regular basis for the same reason. But I stay informed and keep up with a little bit from everybody. Do you listen to him much?
