Take our Am I A Sociopath test to see whether or not you have sociopath tendencies. This quiz will grade your sociopathic tendencies on a percentage basis. What does it mean to be a sociopath?
Maybe you first think of American Psycho's Patrick Bateman — the dangerous banker with a heavy investment in business card paper and exquisite taste for music, cinema and fine dining. Perhaps you've watched The Joker. Weren't you mesmerized by this equally fascinating and terrible character? His charm and unpredictable nature get you to sympathize with his comic book villainy.

However, this artistic representation of sociopathy doesn't look quite the same in real life. People with sociopathic traits aren't usually high-profile criminals, dangerous outcasts or extremely glamorous professionals. They are everyday people who don't easily empathize with others, are extremely driven to success and don't often fear the consequences of their actions. Could this be you? Take this quiz to find out, and compare the results with your friends! This quiz is intended for entertainment purposes only and doesn't constitute medical advice.

Fun Facts

Sociopaths seem to have different brain chemistry than the average person. For example, when most people watch a scary movie, their pulse races, their palms get sweaty and they start breathing more rapidly. Sociopaths don't exhibit these signs of fear. Sometimes, it's the exact opposite! They feel calmer and more relaxed. This can be a double-edged sword for them. While this fearlessness can be convenient, it can also make them act recklessly and suffer negative consequences.

Sociopaths don't usually appear scary or disturbing. Quite the opposite, they're often physically attractive, charming and charismatic. They tend to gain people's trust very quickly and become popular in their social circles. They often have many romantic partners and are seen as very desirable. Men are 10 times more likely to be sociopaths than women. However, the reasons behind this haven't been discovered yet. What's your guess?
