sociopaths and jealousy

Postby questions_to_ask » Sun Aug 02, 2009 12:02 pm

are sociopath's jealous?

my platonic friend who i think is a sociopath has a pattern of demeaning people when they talk about being interested in other people. for example: if a friend talks about their boyfriend or girlfriend, lover or someone they are interested in, have a crush, etc. my friend seems to react in negative ways. either by raising his eyes in boredom, changing the subject, looking bored or saying something mean or cruel. but, when he says something mean or cruel he will do it with a smile on his face so your mind can't really figure out if he is truly being mean or just making a joke. i think it is his way of covering up his true intent of confusing the other person.

an example i could use would be: a friend saying,.....'i think that guy that works in the restaurant is cute.' and then my friend who i think is a sociopath would say with a big smile,.....'yeah, when i was in the restaurant the other day i told him my weird, fat friend thought he was attractive.'

then he will turn it on the other person and say they are just over sensitive and slightly paranoid and that it was simply a joke.

Your friend sounds more like a Narcissist than a Sociopath.

Sociopaths nurture conversations about other people. It gives them a chance to identify and attain new victims or resources.

What's the difference anyway? There's a lot of overlap in behaviors and I'm trying to figure out what the most important differences are. As far as I can tell, one of the most important is cruelty. Narcissists use cruel tactics sometimes to achieve their goals, but cruelty is always a means to an end, not the end itself. Narcissists are basically oblivious to other people's feelings. Whereas, sociopaths hurt people intentionally for no other reason than to enjoy the pain of others.
Does this sound right? What else would be significant differences?

they could be jealous, or they could find relationship things extremely boring since (if they are a sociopath) they cannot relate to it at all.

thanks for the replys!

i just came on here because i was upset over something that had just happened. i guess to try and understand and make some sense of this confusion. but, i guess i can find out everything i need to know on google or in the library.

not sure what rolf means. is it rolling all over the floor laughing? i am glad my confusion makes you laugh. typical sociopath reaction i guess.

the thing i mentioned here is the littlest thing this man has done to me and others. i have known him for over 15 years and he has stolen, manipulated and terrorized people the whole time. i could go on for hours about what he has done.

i guess i am just figuring it out now and that is why the littlest things stand out now more as glaring clues than the bigger more obvious characteristics. it is a hard thing to admit that a friend enjoys hurting you.

it is time for me to end the friendship.
