RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

I believe I may be a psychopath

This is NOT an attention thread. I have seen the psychopathy/sociopathy attention threads and this is not one of them. I simply want some input from others. Whether or not I am a sociopath/psychopath has no effect on my life, because if I am there's nothing I can do about it. If I'm not, great. I think either way I'm doing okay in life.
Anyway, I was just browsing the internet when I stumbled on a website about psychopaths. There was a quiz and a lot of the answers were obvious (this one means you're a psychopath, this one means your normal, etc) and a lot of the ones that a "psychopath" would choose are just common things to me.

I don't really lie that much, but I think I have the potential to. Looking someone straight in the eye and telling them something completely untrue just comes naturally. I actually thought it was this easy for everyone but I've recently learned some people are actually bad at lying. I thought the only time that happened was on TV. All you have to do is look and speak, keep your tone normal, make it convincing. Once again, I don't lie often, but if I need something and lying will make it happen, it comes easily.

Guilt/emotions. The only time I've ever really felt guilt is if what I did could haunt me in the future. For example, my mom always bitches and nags about me going to her house. I don't know why because I just stay in my room the whole time but that's beside the point. My mom has attempted suicide a few times and has bipolar and probably other things she hasn't told me about. Whenever I say I don't want to go and she acts distraught and devastated (not exaggerating) it will kind of nag at me in the back of the head. What if she kills herself because she thinks I hate her? I think of all the shit that could happen then. Investigations, I could actually be a suspect because I have motives, I wouldn't have anywhere to go if things got bad in the neighborhood I'm in, etc.

Manipulating people. I do it a lot. I really don't know what else to say about it. I can't really think of a specific example, but just take my word for it I can lie and make people think things to get what I want. This isn't really the same as lying though. I don't know, fuck it I'm just going to move on now

Killing. I can't say that I've ever killed someone so I won't pretend that I have. And I also won't pretend that I think about killing all the time because I don't. But I think if I had to, I could do it easily. I wouldn't do it because it's so easy to get caught killing someone, but if I had the opportunity to kill someone I already want to see dead and not get caught, I would do it. But having an opportunity to kill someone and having no chance of getting caught doesn't really happen.

I'd like input from people that actually know what they're talking about. Ask my questions and I will answer as honestly as I can. There's no reason to lie on the internet.

inb4 everyone on the forums thinks I'm making this thread for attention or I'm a sociopath I'm so hip

No, this is Patrick.

RE: I believe I may be a psychopath

My Psych teacher gave us an example of what a psychopath would probably do if given the chance; He explained that if you gave a psychopath some sharp object and asked them to stab your hand, they would be able to do it without thinking twice, as if it was just any other command. Would you be able to do something like that, or would you pause and think, maybe wondering "Wouldn't that hurt?" ?

Being manipulative is a big part of it, but I don't think even the best manipulators are all psychopaths. My Psych teacher admitted he takes advantage of people as often as he can for his own gain.

And saying you could kill someone is probably much different than actually doing it. If you killed someone (especially up close, using something like a knife or your own bare hands) and if it gave you very little, if any, of an emotional response, then that could be a huge sign of psychopathy (I would think, I'm no expert, just basing this off what my Psych instructor has told me). But of course you wont 100% know how you'll react until after you complete the act. Soldiers have gone into battle wanting the blood of their enemies, leaving with memories of their killings haunting the rest of their lives.


And again I'm no expert, just giving my input.

I thought I was normal but if the symptoms mean anything I'm not normal.

Emotional/Interpersonal aspect includes: Glib and superficial; Egocentric and grandiose; Lack of remorse or guilt; Lack of empathy; Deceitful and manipulative; Shallow emotions. The Social Deviance aspect includes: Impulsive; Poor behavior controls; Need for excitement; Lack of responsibility; Early behavior problems; Adult antisocial behavior.

I'm not an adult yet so I don't know about the last one but I fit every single other characteristic.

But maybe everyone else does too. See this is why I'm looking for input, not just NORMAL or HOLY SHIT BRO YOU'RE FUCKED

No. That first sentence is just an example of how people don't know what the fuck they are talking about when it come to this. NO ONE is going to stab their own hand just because someone told them to.

RE: I believe I may be a psychopath

Triple post sorry but I was just reading and apparently psychopathy is often mistaken for narcissism. If you knew me in real life it would be painfully obvious to you that I have some very narcissistic tendencies and characteristics.

Just thought that was relevant...

I meant stabbing someone else. Someone else comes up to you, puts their hand down, and asks you to stab their hand.

And this is info from my Psych teacher. I dunno, maybe he did mix up something, but that's just what I remember him telling us.

And just because he's a teacher doesn't mean anything. Experts on this stuff all have different definitions and it's just really misunderstood. Most things written about sociopaths/psychopaths are written from a victim standpoint.

He has a doctorate in Psychology. I forgot what exact area but he seemed knowledgeable in general and gave many real-world examples to back things up with. I agree though that experts in the field will have many varying opinions because of the vastly varying nature of people in general. A psychopath to one expert may not be a psychopath to another.

If you're willing to inflict pain casually, as well as being manipulative, I would assume you're leaning towards psychopathy just judging from the general symptoms that are associated with it. However, this is something that other people should give their opinions on first.

You may be a subtype of Sociopath/Psychopath. They're not all the same.

As for me, I'm nomadic, antisocial, asocial, unempathetic, lack a conscience, and I can't feel guilt, regret, or love.

Dear Tumblrites: Despite your wrongly self-diagnosed PTSD, no line of scientific evidence suggests people can be triggered over the internet. Triggering works through the senses (i.e. smell, taste, touch, vision, hearing.) but it goes through real time; if you're not experiencing it in real life as it's ACTUALLY HAPPENING in your ACTUAL life, you CANNOT be triggered. The only exception to this is if you have a seizure, but then again, that's triggered by epilepsy (i.e. rapidly-changing flashing lights) NOT PTSD. Remembering a bad incident is NOT the same thing as having a flashback. When you remember, you think; when you flashback, you feel.

I've already read all of those sociopath. Thanks though for providing a constructive response. Now that I think about it the only emotions I really ever feel are anger and irritability. I hadn't really thought about it before but what is happiness? How would you people define it?

RE: I believe I may be a psychopath

Happiness is a chemical reaction; the release of stored serotonin and dopamine in the bloodstream brought on by external stimuli. Now all you'd have to do is think what would cause that.

I was reading more about psychopaths and what emotions they can feel and one of them is glee. I think I feel that...my main goal is usually to get weed and whenever I do I get kind of excited then just back to where I started.
The more I read the more it resembles myself but I don't want to say I have it because I'm not sure.

RE: I believe I may be a psychopath

I've researched this in suspicion with my own psychopathic tendencies. Wingless, from what I've read, sounds about right. Anyway, I'm pretty sure psychologists disagree largely on who can be classified as a psychopath, so it's kind of a gray area. Some insist that only the people who feel nothing when killing and raping and injuring are psychopaths, while others claim it's just the people who don't feel much remorse or empathy. So, in order to solve this, you must compare yourself and then gauge the "amount of psychopathy" you have. That way you can either label yourself as a psychopath or just someone with psychopathic tendencies, like me.

"Experts estimate that 3% of men and 1% of women have anti-social personality disorder, while only 1% of the population is truly psychopathic". So 3/100 men have "psychopathic tendencies" or anti-social personality disorder, like us, while 1/100 people are full on psychopaths. If you have psychopathic tendencies, I'd look into the umbrella term of "Anti social personality disorder", which psychopathy is a sub-type of. Sociopathy is pretty much the same thing as psychopathy, as far as the symptoms are concerned.

My friend comes over and will randomly pick up a belt and whip the shit out of me for no reason, or punch me hard as shit in the leg multiple times, and laugh about it like he just flicked me or something. Shit hurts, so I have to kick his shit to get him to knock it the fuck off. He's what I'd call a mild psychopath. I, on the other hand, don't do that shit because I know it sucks, and honestly, I see no reason to. I definitely have empathy, although only for injury. I don't cry when others do, and I pretty much can't relate to ANYONE who bitches about their day to day problems unless I've already been through those problems, or can relate them to something. The only times I feel empathetic are when something actaully important happened that is actually bad. I remember my one friends dad died, and at the time I didn't even give it a second thought. I guess that's actually important, but whatever. I couldn't relate and didn't give a shit. Meh. I don't think me not giving a fuck causes anyone harm...

Also, mfw everyone thinks psychopathy is cool. It's not. Psychopaths are dick heads. They're the wall-street execs who remorselessly have people killed or that "tough ass" douche who will beat someone to death for making them mad, or the killers who will kill and rape nearly a hundred women just for the hell of it. Psychopaths feel about others how we feel about the trash we just through out. Just something to be used. That puppy being beaten to death? Who cares? That little kid getting run over? Who cares? And then they act like they are completely normal, imitating normal people. You'll have a very hard time spotting a psychopath. They don't act different until they start with their behaviours. All of these things are in more severe cases of psychopathy though...

Also, know the difference between a violent psychopath and a non-violent one. Violent psychopaths will kill and rape and murder without remorse. Non-violent ones will just swindle a grandma out of her life's savings and will have no qualms with stealing from their parents and siblings who are going through a rough patch and need money.

TRIGGER WARNING: THIS TRIGGER WARNING CONTAINS TRIGGER WARNINGS!

Dear Tumblrites: Despite your wrongly self-diagnosed PTSD, no line of scientific evidence suggests people can be triggered over the internet. Triggering works through the senses (i.e. smell, taste, touch, vision, hearing.) but it goes through real time; if you're not experiencing it in real life as it's ACTUALLY HAPPENING in your ACTUAL life, you CANNOT be triggered. The only exception to this is if you have a seizure, but then again, that's triggered by epilepsy (i.e. rapidly-changing flashing lights) NOT PTSD. Remembering a bad incident is NOT the same thing as having a flashback. When you remember, you think; when you flashback, you feel.

Wow great response I really got the input I was looking for from your answer.

I thought I was normal but if the symptoms mean anything I'm not normal.

Emotional/Interpersonal aspect includes: Glib and superficial; Egocentric and grandiose; Lack of remorse or guilt; Lack of empathy; Deceitful and manipulative; Shallow emotions. The Social Deviance aspect includes: Impulsive; Poor behavior controls; Need for excitement; Lack of responsibility; Early behavior problems; Adult antisocial behavior.

I'm not an adult yet so I don't know about the last one but I fit every single other characteristic.

But maybe everyone else does too. See this is why I'm looking for input, not just NORMAL or HOLY SHIT BRO YOU'RE FUCKED

It's a mental condition for a reason, idiot.

RE: I believe I may be a psychopath

Didn't read all of it sorry... But it's not a good thing to self diagnose. People tend to identify a lot with many symptoms they read about. For example, I read about lyme disease and identified with a lot of the symptoms. Guess what? I don't have lyme disease. I read about A number of sicknesses and mental disorders and identified with the symptoms. Lo and behold I did not have any of the things I suspected I did. Especially easy to do with the mental shit. Really prevolent nowadays. If you're concerned about this, just go see a psychologist. It's really the best way to find out if you really are what you're concerned about. Self diagnosing isn't a good thing to do, because it's fairly easy to identify with a lot of symptoms. Happens to people going through medical school when learning about various diseases. Bottom line is, just see a psychologist if you Really think you have it and want to be evaluated for it.

RE: I believe I may be a psychopath

^ Mfw I had lyme disease, I did see a psychologist who thought I had that shit, and psychologists/psychiatry isn't really an exact science. There are so many different ideas of how the brain works, I don't even trust any of them. (Except maybe the chemical psychologists, or biological, or whatever they are called. They make scientific judgments based on chemical imbalances and shit.)

Eh, even if you are a sociopath, I would not be surprised if schools were the root cause of it. I seen myself turning into someone who absolutely hate people and I'm nearing graduating.

RE: I believe I may be a psychopath

Why the hell does everyone keep confusing being a psychopath and being a sociopath? Psychopaths kill someone because the man on their cereal box told them to. Sociopaths kill someone (reason obviously varies but rarely is it a batshit crazy one like psychopaths), don't feel any remorse, and don't understand why anyone would.

You saw a psychologist that thought you had Lyme disease? Lol jk. Yeah, both psychology and psychiatry are not exact sciences. I wouldn't go to a psychiatrist though.. Unless you're looking to be pumped with medications that can be potentially very harmful.
My personal opinion of going to a psychologist/psychiatrist is that you should only go to see if you have a problem if it interferes with your daily life. Things like depression, intense anxieties, etc. my worries for modern day society is that maybe they over analyze too much. People tend to almos /want/ to find problems with themselves. Not saying OP is doing that, though. When I was younger I was misdiagnosed with ADD and bipolar disorder. It was not a fun time. It was horrible, and the medications they gave me only made it worse. The medications actually aggravated my symptoms and worsened them. It also threw me into a worse depression then what i was in before. That's why I really advise against people running to a psychologist or a psychiatrist when they think there is a little problem with them that doesn't profoundly interfere with your day to day life. I've had therapy which I found to be MUCH more helpful than being medicated. So there's that. Sorry for rambling

From wha I've read apparently psychopaths are more organized than a sociopath. Sociopaths more easily become agitated. But anyways, the reason why there is so much confusion between the two is because they have many overlapping symptoms and are pretty similar, but do have definite differences that sets them apart from each other. That's what I've gathered from the bit of dabbling I've done in the past with this subject, though. So I could very well be wrong.

RE: I believe I may be a psychopath

Yeah because I'm really going to go to a psychologist and ask them if I am a psychopath. I can see this happening. My psychologist told me I have all kinds of shit to get me to take meds, I don't trust those people anymore.
My family has a really fucked up history I honestly wouldn't be surprised to find out I have any kind of mental disorder.

No, this is Patrick.
