¨Because my article on the sociopathic personality has been one of my more popular articles, I decided to make an online self-diagnostic psychopathy test. The 52 question test examines eleven dimensions of personality to uncover psychopathy and other affective deficit personality types that could be confused for psychopathy including antisocial personality, narcissistic personality, asperger syndrome, and schizoid personality.¨Kevin Goodman
Note: I use psychopathy interchangeably with sociopathy. Most scholars use sociopath and psychopath interchangeably but some insists a psychopath is the more violent version of the sociopath.¨HERE Are you a sociopath/psychopath?
Sociopathic personality is based on an inability to feel empathy for others. Sociopaths are not necessarily violent or maladaptive but they do lack empathy for others and are therefore capable of being manipulative or threatening in order to get what they want. The words sociopath and psychopath are used interchangeably in the research community. The current DSM does not recognize sociopathic personality as distinct from anti-social personality but many researchers believe sociopathy is distinct. Aside from cold-blooded killers and manipulative con artists, it’s believed that adaptive psychopaths have succeeded in authoritative fields such as business, law, medicine, and the military.
About the test
This test is designed to provoke responses that correlate to a number of psychological indicators. Certain combinations indicate a possible personality type.
Note: This test should be taken for amusement purposes only. I have tried to accurately replicate personality features to correspond with the correct personality type but only a trained psychiatrist can make a medical diagnosis.

REAL HERO/REAL LIFE: Bishop John Shelby Spong
“I was simply interpreting a rising consciousness,” he said. “Whether it was race or women or homosexual people, the issue was always the same: fighting against anything that dehumanizes a child of God on the basis of an external characteristic.” Bishop John Shelby Spong (click on his photo)
IT GETS BETTER--Archbishop Desmond Tutu supports LGBT full acceptance and inclusion too!
¨Churches say that the expression of love in a heterosexual monogamous relationship includes the physical, the touching, embracing, kissing, the genital act - the totality of our love makes each of us grow to become increasingly godlike and compassionate. If this is so for the heterosexual, what earthly reason have we to say that it is not the case with the homosexual?¨ Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu
