What does Psychopath mean? Antisocial Personality Disorder - Mental Health Help with Kati Morton

Ever wonder what a "psychopath" really is? Today I explain what that term really means and what people who struggle with this are like. Antisocial personality disorder is a mental health condition in which a person has a long-term pattern of manipulating, exploiting, or violating the rights of others. This behavior is often criminal. Antisocial personality disorder is often referred to as psychopathy or sociopathy in popular culture. However, neither psychopathy nor sociopathy are recognized professional labels used for diagnosis. Symptoms of Antisocial Personality Disorder: Antisocial personality disorder is diagnosed when a person's pattern of antisocial behavior has occurred since age 15 (although only adults 18 years or older can be diagnosed with this disorder) and consists of the majority of these symptoms: Failure to conform to social norms with respect to lawful behaviors as indicated by repeatedly performing acts that are grounds for arrest Deceitfulness, as indicated by repeated lying, use of aliases, or conning others for personal profit or pleasure Impulsivity or failure to plan ahead Irritability and aggressiveness, as indicated by repeated physical fights or assaults Reckless disregard for safety of self or others Consistent irresponsibility, as indicated by repeated failure to sustain consistent work behavior or honor financial obligations Lack of remorse, as indicated by being indifferent to or rationalizing having hurt, mistreated, or stolen from another There should also be evidence of Conduct Disorder in the individual as a child, whether or not it was ever formally diagnosed by a professional. Because personality disorders describe long-standing and enduring patterns of behavior, they are most often diagnosed in adulthood. It is uncommon for them to be diagnosed in childhood or adolescence, because a child or teen is under constant development, personality changes and maturation. According to the DSM-5, antisocial personality disorder cannot be diagnosed in people younger than 18 years old. Antisocial personality disorder is 70 percent more prevalent in males than females. The 12-month prevalence rate of this disorder is between 0.2 and 3.3 percent. Like most personality disorders, antisocial personality disorder typically will decrease in intensity with age, with many people experiencing few of the most extreme symptoms by the time they are in the 40s or 50s. Individuals with Antisocial Personality Disorder frequently lack empathy and tend to be callous, cynical, and contemptuous of the feelings, rights, and sufferings of others. They may have an inflated and arrogant self-appraisal (e.g., feel that ordinary work is beneath them or lack a realistic concern about their current problems or their future) and may be excessively opinionated, self-assured, or cocky. They may display a glib, superficial charm and can be quite voluble and verbally facile (e.g., using technical terms or jargon that might impress someone who is unfamiliar with the topic). Lack of empathy, inflated self-appraisal, and superficial charm are features that have been commonly included in traditional conceptions of psychopathy and may be particularly distinguishing of Antisocial Personality Disorder in prison or forensic settings where criminal, delinquent, or aggressive acts are likely to be nonspecific. These individuals may also be irresponsible and exploitative in their sexual relationships. A personality disorder is an enduring pattern of inner experience and behavior that deviates from the norm of the individual's culture. The pattern is seen in two or more of the following areas: cognition; affect; interpersonal functioning; or impulse control. The enduring pattern is inflexible and pervasive across a broad range of personal and social situations. It typically leads to significant distress or impairment in social, work or other areas of functioning. The pattern is stable and of long duration, and its onset can be traced back to early adulthood or adolescence.

Comments

The Elect: Sounds like Pro-Abortionists.

Adrian Rivera: Not 'sociopath'?

mandar kumthekar: Necessary and sufficient factors that make's a psychopath.
1.fearlessness
2 .no empathy whatsoever
3.anger
4.gross hate

Nous Numen: More nonsense. No the DSM or ICD manuals do not correlate to the notion that a Hare PCL claim of psychopathy determines that one automatically qualifies as antisocial personality disorder. And this is the issue, it is only the weak and those in the gravest of circumstances that can be subject to the notion of authority sufficient enough to determine that you must be as you are declared by someone who is earning money from making the statement. You could be a clown, does it make you funny?

tapolna: Well, according to Donald Trump himself, when he was a child, his conduct was so bad, so belligerent that his parents sent him away to a cadet school.

ace spades: I was diagnossed with anti social personality disorder by a doctor but i have emotions and i feel emotions and i get depressed and like i feel pain and love people hurt me a lot before and i dont hurt people or stuff and i dont want to hurt people or animals like is anti social personal disorder like i what i have or no becuase i dont feel like how you describe in this video

James O'Brien: Psychopaths are violent, evil, and hurt people, including themselves. Sociopaths are anti social, may not like society, and are usually loners. Am I right or am I missing something? They are two different words explaining paths people are on, so they both can't mean the same thing. It seems that a psychopath is abusive and a sociopath has a problem with socialising or society at large.

BLAKE MARSHALL: Your neato burrito

l turner: they a NARCISSTIC opportunists

Oskar winters: i'm really empathetic to animals, vegan and an environmentalist and i love trying to help friends and strangers with issues...but at the same time i have always felt nothing like this whole world is fake and it doesn't really matter if i stab someone or not...i don't think this is being a psychopath...even though i score highly on tests. i feel this is something else.

Meade Vlog channel: They are extremely rare. Narcissists are rare too.

AriesSun LeoRising: BHO - antisocial/ psychopath

Phobos Maelstrom: okay but at what point does it become a mental disorder as opposed to a strongly held belief, and don't tell me that that is part of one too because if you want to work by that logic, any freedom fighter or political hero must be assessed through the same lens. Whether psychosis or psychopathy, where do beliefs and mental disorder differentiate?

Steven Blake: It's funny how there only one percent of the population is psycho and u have managed to get all of them in the comment section!!!!somehow everyone in the comment section is a self diagnosed psycho now!!!too funny!!

native speaker English teacher: Take your meds and serve the 1%.

Laurence Amdrews: Somebody please help me, I dont want to self diagnose, but here are the reasons I believe I may have some sort of mental problem.

Lying, all the time, anything I can lie about to make life easier I do, way more than I should.

Theft when ik I shouldnt

Intense jealousy

Lack of remorse, guilt and sympathy towards people that I dont deem as close

Mild anxiety in groups

Uncontrollable anger, grown out of violence but I used to get incredibly violent, now I just say things I shouldnt and cant control it

Blaming others for everything, idk why, I just do

Lack of proper connection to people, especially family

Lack of direction in life

Unable to recognise or sometimes feel and demonstrate emotion sometimes

I dont want to hypocondriact or overreact but I’ve been told I may suffer from Antisocial personality disorder, and tbh I have no idea what that means, someone pls help, is all this normal? Am I a bad person?

-ˏˋ ˊˎ-【Pooftastic Poofster.】-ˏˋ ˊˎ-: You're annoying as shit.

lollsazz: I know a girl I suspekt is a sosiopath, who is becoming a doctor. She seemed to have a lot of friends, until I heard that none of them knew she wanted to study medicine... Together with other anti-social things she has done. It feel so weird knowing that... What do you even do when you know that medical students are clearly anti-social? Do you have any responsibilities when knowing such things? Or do you let it be up to other people to figure out?

niks gee: Love your videos Kati but they are not all killers.

dignified &respectful: so all those tribe people r psychopathic.just society propaganda.
