How much of a psycho are you?

Image

A few tests, as I know that there are a few people who ask the question, am I the sociopath? After being with a sociopath, they can make you react so badly you question yourself. So, I found these tests. For anyone who wants to try them out. 

Test One

http://psychopath.channel4.com/quizzes.html

Your place on the psychopathic spectrum

YOUR
SCORE 27%

You are warm and empathic with a heightened awareness of social responsibility and a strong sense of conscience. You like to carefully weigh up the pros and cons of a situation before you act and are generally averse to taking risks. You are very much a ‘people person’ and dislike conflict. ‘Do unto others…’ are your watchwords. But, although you avoid hurting others, those residing at the higher end of the psychopathic spectrum might not be as considerate, so stay vigilant to avoid being hurt unnecessarily.

Test Two

http://personality-testing.info/tests/LSRP.php

Scores range from 1 (low) to 5 (high). 

Your score from primary psychopathy has been calculated as 1.2. Primary psychopathy is the affective aspects of psychopathy; a lack of empathy for other people and tolerance for antisocial orientations. 

Your score from secondary psychopathy has been calculated as 1.5. Secondary psychopathy is the antisocial aspects of psychopathy; rule breaking and a lack of effort towards socially rewarded behavior. 

I have no idea if that is good or bad, or in the normal range. Does anyone else want to do these tests ? I want to know if I scored high… I have written about this for a year now, and often wonder, how do I understand it so well? 

Anyone else fancy doing these tests and publishing your scores? (Please 🙂 )

  1. Hope it isn’t rubbish got 27 too lol Nice test though. . Yup empath although learning to hide that so sociopaths keep away

      1. I think that is what secondary is. Its not high 2.2 I don’t think. Primary is hurting others. Secondary is bending the rules etc (am surprised I didn’t get higher on secondary).

      2. I took the 2nd test and see your scores were quite low, they could have explained the results a bit better, but you are pretty much the opposite of sociopath according to these tests. The graph shows a lot of scores all over the place with the highest concentration being in the mid-range of these scores. I wonder if a lot of targets of sociopaths score very low on these tests? Does a sociopath recognize this in a person and exploit that to their advantage?

        I’d love to know what “imagine walking on the ceiling” had to do with being a sociopath or not? (In their follow up survey questions.)

  2. I think so seems like a more risk taking score ay.. yah I don’t think 2.2 is sounds more average rather then anything

  3. Dear Positiva – I just took the quizzes and got 27% also! I thought maybe it was rigged and tried to take it imagining what my ex might say if he was able to be honest – and it came out to 87%…ha.
    I got 1.1 for the primary and 1.4 for secondary in the other quiz.
    Cheers!

  4. I’m not a Spath 🙂
    I got 15% so, I am not an Socio-Animal, I am a Human Being, being human 🙂

    Love & Light 🙂

    I must try answering for the Soc, sounds interesting!

  5. I tried the first test – got 18%
    I tried Hares psyco test a while ago. I scored somewhere between 1-2 which is very low.

    Sorry for being incognito – there is no need for my ex. to see me around pages like this, he is giving me enough trouble as it is.

  6. I got 15% for me and then pretended to be my ex and got 87% – nice to know I am empathetic and not the nutter he tried to tell me I was!! Good doing the test positivagirl, amazing how you get things right, I was actually questioning myself this week as to whether it was me who has socio tendencies (due to having to sort out the ex getting his furniture and having to be in touch with him and him telling me his version of events which are the complete opposite of what happened!). Thank you for making me smile :0)

    1. Your welcome lulu, they do make you think!!!… I was thinking well, maybe I am, I understand it so well. Why do I understand it so well, perhaps this is me. I read those questions, and thought – no… that’s not me. I might be a bit naughty sometimes and bend the rules, but I wouldn’t ever want to use anyone else for my own gain.

      Thought this is a useful test, for those who doubt themselves after their partner calls them the psycho…

  7. Ugh Oh, I was 24% on the 1rst and my Levenson Self-report was 1.3 & 2.8%, respectively. I see how I rate near the majority on the color scale, but seems I am “on the lower fringes”.

    Look, I know I have some issues; not relating to people, being felt like I am on outsider, suspicious of other people until I get to know them, feeling like I am the “class clown” in work situations, getting into heated exchanges throughout my working years, etc. I have been known to “open mouth- insert foot” more than I care to remember. I am good at making up, though, and always trying to mend fences. So I have talent there.

    My ex always told me “You need to LEARN to be more hateful”, “You’re too nice” I think he would tell me regularly and why can’t I learn to be more like him! Which, as you may gather, is:
    Hateful
    Arrogant
    Cruddy Attitude
    See cup as half empty
    What can you do for ME?
    What can I say at the most sensitive moment to REALLY hurt you?

    I spit out my coffee when on one of the test it said ‘do you like to imagine your partner that caused you pain be in equal or worse state’, or something like that, and I think, “oh hell yeah”. But isn’t that sick, too? I think I put neutral because even I recognise how sick it is to want that. I always refer back to a quote I heard awhile back that says, all humans, being in this bizarre state of consciousness that we endure, are only a neuron away from going batsh!t crazy! How I feel much in life- and look at the news, the streets, the whole bloody world- it’s amazing anything really endures here!

    Thanks Pos for another great morning reflection. This blog is such a wonderful, creative, and self-soothing exercise! I love reading other’s thoughts, scores, reflections- God bless, Universe Kiss! Happy Post Valentines Everyone- we made it! 😉

  8. Who hoo! 15% yeah me! I guess all the youre crazy or bipolar comments are more of his lies and problem not mine.
    Good to know!

  9. 47%
    “Though your conscience is in the right place you also have a pragmatic streak and generally aren’t afraid to do your own dirty work! You’re no shrinking violet – but no daredevil either. You generally have little trouble seeing things from another person’s perspective but, at the same time, are no pushover. ‘Everything in moderation – including moderation’ might sum up your approach to life.”

    It’s a cute short quiz to get the “gist” of what makes a person more or less sociopathic. As we know, real diagnosis is much more involved and complex so that it is less obvious how you should be responding. A real sociopath would find it easy to lie on this quiz to get a more human score. Even at McDonald’s they had my daughter take a 100 question personality test during her interview, it took forever! Her manager told her months later that it was basically to see if she’s a sociopath or not…I can’t imagine what Dr Hare would think of that!

    1. This is good. I understand quite a lot about trolls, years ago, I ran an MSN news forum, and we had a lot of trolls on our site (it was around the time of Sept 11th).

      I have seen real disgusting ones, like those trolling RIP sites for children, things like that 😦

      I don’t think these people were trolls though, I think that they were putting their view out there, in that they disagreed with my post. Trolls are there deliberately to cause trouble, and can write the most shocking things. I didn’t see that with the comments – I thought they were genuine thoughts by socio’s who were aggrieved. I know it was the one post that the socio in my life objected to the most also. As he said it wasn’t true. This is why I raised it.

      Thank you for sharing Electrikkiss 🙂

      1. I have a few trolls on my site. Obvious socs, yet good for controversy and ratings! I leave their posts for that reason but try not to pay any mind to them.

        The world looks so different now that my eyes have been opened.

        The narcissist who opened my eyes with his “by the book” behavior actually started out as a blog troll, but having been somebody I knew from my past I thought he was safe despite his weird comments.

        I guess I can actually say, I’m grateful for the trolls!

      2. I agree, we don’t seem to get many here. But I think that is because if it is a direct personal attack the comment doesn’t get through.

        I don’t care if socio’s post here. As long as they don’t attack anyone else. Has your website changed radically? I am sure it wasn’t like that before?

      3. My website began as a place to vent about an on-again/off-again affair with a man whom I would later find out to be a sociopath. I was going crazy again over being discarded and replaced with his newest source of supply. I thought I was in love and couldn’t understand why he would just walk away. So I posted all the gritty details. I had also started a path of self discovery and began working with a spiritual healer. So, I started about other bad things, to get it out. The more I wrote, the better I felt and the deeper my stories became…..eventually I started digging deeper into my past. I stayed writing about my childhood.

        I did it all with a different perspective though. It was like I was channeling the soc/narcs point of view. I think that’s what finally brought the one who opened my eyes to me.

        I find that a lot of my fan base are soc/narcs. My character in a lot of ways acts like she has no emotion and enjoys hurting others.

        It makes sense to me but I’m not sure if it does to you!

        I’ve changed dramatically since I’ve started writing and so had my blog. It’s like I opened up and let down the walls and started feeling again. Once that happened I was just overwhelmed with emotion. I’ve been far too empathetic and depressed this last year but FINALLY I’m starting to find a happy balance.

        There’s just so much to figure out once you start to see. The whole world is different.

        I’m grateful I was able to find your blog, and many others that have helped me through this journey. Yours was the first! You’re blog was the one that put the pieces together!

        I think we underestimate the power of our writing and the impact it REALLY has on the world!

        I get the worst types on my blog. Daily search terms of molestation (and worse) land puerile onto my blog (I don’t cover those types of stories at all). Yet, every so often I get a young reader thankful for finding one of my stories and asking for help via emotional support and advice.

        This day in age, to be able to reach people all over the world is just astounding. It makes me realize how small the planet really is!

        Sorry! Didn’t mean to go off on a tangent!

        But yes! My site is ever evolving!

  10. When I was a child, I remember crawling around the house backwards, looking through my legs at the ceiling, pretending I was walking on it. It was freeing and just my imagination. I would later dream of being able to fly to the ceiling. In these scenarios, I was usually escaping someone.

  11. Hi Pos;

    I took it a step further. I took the test for myself and scored 15%.

    “You are warm and empathetic with a heightened awareness of social responsibility and a strong sense of conscience. You like to carefully weigh up the pros and cons of a situation before you act and are generally averse to taking risks. You are very much a ‘people person’ and dislike conflict. ‘Do unto others…’ are your watchwords. But, although you avoid hurting others, those residing at the higher end of the psychopathic spectrum might not be as considerate, so stay vigilant to avoid being hurt unnecessarily.

    My friends, especially the ones who have known me pre- and post-SP, tell me I am too nice and because of that, I have been told that from now on I must present any potential suitors to the “approval committee” before I am allowed to date again!! LOL Of course, this was all in fun – but since I already decided I am an a$$hole magnet, I may take them up on it IF I ever decide to date again!

    I then went back and along with my sister, we took it answering the questions as we perceived my ex-SP would. Mr. Happy scored a whopping 88% and on several questions we scored him lower than we thought he might score himself.

    “You can play hardball with the best of them! You know what you want and are not afraid to go for it – even if it means bending the rules occasionally and putting a few noses out of joint on the way. Nothing fazes you. You are decisive, self-confident and pretty much up for anything. You are a ‘means-to-an-end’ person. For you, it’s not necessarily a matter of right or wrong, but of what gets the job done. ‘Bring it on’ is your mantra, but to help those around you keep their heads, you should learn some tricks to help you temper your self-satisfying tendencies…”

    Really telling when you compare the two scores.

    1. Hi Celeste 😃

      We got the same score, as I see a lot of others have also 😁
      We should form an Empathy Club, only empaths can apply 😁
      If we meet anyone, I think we should make them do the test 😜😱
      Wouldn’t that be interesting 👹💀👽😱 so , then we can Cha Cha right out of there! 💃💃💃🎉

      Love & Light 😃❤️️👼

      1. Hey PR!

        It’s interesting to see the scores… Did you score your SP?? It was amazing to even estimate how he would have answered and then see the results. Talk about validation!! LOL.

        My SP’s previous ex was / is ex-military intelligence and is now a private investigator, and she didn’t even see through him. So I think that in addition to the SP test there needs to be a criminal background check, credit check, panel interview with YOUR family and friends, and at least 6 months of professional counseling… before the first date. LOL

        Celeste

      2. Hi Celeste 🙂

        My Spath scored 100% so, validation definitely.

        I remember once when one of my children’s little guinea pigs was ill & he said ‘just neck it!’, I was horrified & took it to the vet so, I had no trouble answering that question for him!
        He also gave me lots of other answers over our time so, i pretty much believe that the 100% is accurate.

        Yes, loads of pre-testing & interviews & transparency in future from prospective suitors 🙂
        Keep up the good work C 😉

        Love & Light 🙂

  12. Second test for me was:

    1.4 Primary: Primary psychopathy is the affective aspects of psychopathy; a lack of empathy for other people and tolerance for antisocial orientations.

    1.7 Secondary: Secondary psychopathy is the antisocial aspects of psychopathy; rule breaking and a lack of effort towards socially rewarded behavior.

  13. I got 9% on the first test:
    You are warm and empathic with a heightened awareness of social responsibility and a strong sense of conscience. You like to carefully weigh up the pros and cons of a situation before you act and are generally averse to taking risks. You are very much a ‘people person’ and dislike conflict. ‘Do unto others…’ are your watchwords. But, although you avoid hurting others, those residing at the higher end of the psychopathic spectrum might not be as considerate, so stay vigilant to avoid being hurt unnecessarily.

    and… 1.4 primary , 1.5 secondary on the second test

  14. Test 1 i got 30% “You are warm and empathic with a heightened awareness of social responsibility and a strong sense of conscience. You like to carefully weigh up the pros and cons of a situation before you act and are generally averse to taking risks. You are very much a ‘people person’ and dislike conflict. ‘Do unto others…’ are your watchwords. But, although you avoid hurting others, those residing at the higher end of the psychopathic spectrum might not be as considerate, so stay vigilant to avoid being hurt unnecessarily.”

    1. I am a bit of a risk taker though. I do weight it up but I’m certainly not risk adverse. In something’s the ex soc was less of a risk taker than me. But perhaps he just said that and when I think about it, he wasn’t really risk adverse either. But he wasn’t a dare devil junky by ant stretch either

      Second test 1.3 and 1.4

  15. 33%

    “You are warm and empathic with a heightened awareness of social responsibility and a strong sense of conscience. You like to carefully weigh up the pros and cons of a situation before you act and are generally averse to taking risks. You are very much a ‘people person’ and dislike conflict. ‘Do unto others…’ are your watchwords. But, although you avoid hurting others, those residing at the higher end of the psychopathic spectrum might not be as considerate, so stay vigilant to avoid being hurt unnecessarily.”

    Weird.. I thought, I like conflicts, though only as an observer..

  16. Test One Score: 85%
    You can play hardball with the best of them! You know what you want and are not afraid to go for it – even if it means bending the rules occasionally and putting a few noses out of joint on the way. Nothing fazes you. You are decisive, self-confident and pretty much up for anything. You are a ‘means-to-an-end’ person. For you, it’s not necessarily a matter of right or wrong, but of what gets the job done. ‘Bring it on’ is your mantra, but to help those around you keep their heads, you should learn some tricks to help you temper your self-satisfying tendencies…

    Test Two:
    You have completed the Levenson Self-Report Psychopathy Scale.

    The LSRP measures two scales.

    Scores range from 1 (low) to 5 (high).

    Your score from primary psychopathy has been calculated as 4.8. Primary psychopathy is the affective aspects of psychopathy; a lack of empathy for other people and tolerance for antisocial orientations.

    Your score from secondary psychopathy has been calculated as 4.4. Secondary psychopathy is the antisocial aspects of psychopathy; rule breaking and a lack of effort towards socially rewarded behavior.

    So according to these two tests…TOTAL PSYCHOPATH. I am not going to agree or disagree…I am not a monster and my life goals/ambition are not to cause chaos and havoc in the lives of other people. I am married…two kids…excellent career. I’m even looking into being a Girl Scout leader/mom.

  17. 12% – 18% on the first (there were 2 questions that I felt I could answer more than one way; took test twice)

    Second test: 1.1 on primary psychopathy (lower than all but 3.6% of test takers) and 2.6 on secondary psychopathy (54th percentile)
