Can someone have Aspergers and meet the criteria for ASPD?

Postby schizoidman24 » Fri Aug 11, 2017 12:56 am

I have Aspergers. I saw a psychiatrist and he told me I met the criteria for NPD and that I hate strong BPD and schizoid tendencies. I was curious if someone with Aspergers could be "psychopath" or a "sociopath" (i.e. ASPD).

Same as Shock said..

but are you diagnosed as having Aspergers, or is it only NPD you have a diagnosis of?

To the outsider, someone with NPD and someone with Aspergers can appear to be similar until they get to know the person a lot better.

If you have NPD comorbid with BPD and schizoid traits, you could easily be mistaken for someone with Aspergers and possibly ASPD.

If you're in doubt over your diagnosis, then please do go and speak to a professional.. but in the meantime (and since i'm forever curious).. would you mind listing the traits you have?
I'm not a professional, but maybe myself and other members will be able to help you figure out a bit more about what could be going on for you.

just as a matter of curiosity, how does NPD, BPD traits and schizoid (SPD) traits relate to ASPD? you seem to be linking these and i can't see why.
