The Sociopath Next Door
« on: October 07, 2018, 02:08:26 pm »
I saw this interview excerpt linked to on a Christian site, but it does not appear to be a Christian book. The author is Martha Stout, author of The Sociopath Next Door, and the interview capsulizes her advice for recognizing and dealing with a sociopath:

Quote
How do you spot a sociopath?
A sociopath has no conscience, no ability to feel shame, guilt or remorse. Since 1 in 25 ordinary Americans is a sociopath, you almost certainly know one or more than one already. How can you recognize him or her?

Yeah, I read this book a while back. Fascinating stuff. I kind of got alerted to someone who used to be in my life who fit the profile of a narcissist with sociopathic tendencies. Fortunately, they are no longer in my life.

Anyway, you start to see how common a type this is once you get alerted to it. It explains a lot of some people's behaviors. I have also heard of another book similar to this called "Snakes In Suits" about sociopathic types in the working world. I have not read that book, but heard it recommended. I might read it at some point, or reread Martha Stout's book again.
