Millon's ten subtypes

Postby Maupertuis » Thu Aug 23, 2012 6:28 pm

So... which of Millon's ten subtypes of psychopathy are you?

The Unprincipled Psychopath

Activities kept near or at the boundaries of the law; stereotyped social roles; con man, charlatan, fast-talking used car salesman.

Expansive fantasies and exaggerated sense of self-importance.

Willing to take advantage of and humiliate those who leave themselves open to deceit.

May cultivate persuasiveness or charm as a means of getting others to lower their guard, but sees all prosocial behaviour as ultimately self-serving.

Contemptuous of "the system"; working "the system" to avoid punishment seen as just "part of the game".

The Covetous Psychopath

Sees self as wronfully deprived of life's neccessities, leading to envy and resentment.

Compensates by taking what he or she is entitled to as a means of revenging wrong and restoring "karmic balance" in life.

Sees self as a victim of external forces, misunderstood by others and by society.

Manipulates others as a meaning of proving own superiority, as well as avenging attributions of worthlessness.

Smug and contemptuous toward victims, who may be viewed as pawns in the larger game.

Prone to ostentatious displays of conspicuous consumption.

The Risk-Taking Psychopath

Chronic underarousal leads to risk-taking as means of "feeling alive".

Fails to realize the consequences of risk-taking; believes that social rules are unnecessarily confining of own sense of adventure.

Eschews normal desire for safety as evidence of cowardice.

Proves own mettle as a means of proving self-esteem and worthiness to self and others.

The Disingenuous Psychopath

Superficial sociability (or even seductiveness) hides an impulsive, moody and resentful core.

Emotionally labile, prone to excitement-seeking, stimulus-dependant behaviour, lacking in forethought, with a high potential for painful consequences.

Rationalizes and projects blame onto others when attempts to solicit attention go awry.

The Spineless Psychopath

Aggression not intrinsically rewarding; psychopathic acts intended to others that the psychopath is not weak.

Has first-strike mentality; strikes whenever own fearfulness peaks (perhaps in episodes of panic), regardless of objective degree of threat.

Experiences fantasies of vulnerability; sees others as sadistic or exploiting.

The Abrasive Psychopath

Prefers to be overtly contentious, confrontational, antagonistic rather than indirectly manipulative.

Expects hostility from others, and pre-empts insults with own abrasiveness.

Prefers to escalate arguments; experiences pleasure by frustrating others, making them back down.

Inherently oppositional to any form of emotional control; seeks to break constraints simply because they exist.

The Tyrannical Psychopath

Realizes pleasure through total control of others.

Employs violence instrumentally, to force perceived opponents to cower or submit.

Projects image of power or brutality; supports self-image of power and superiority by inflicting pain and suffering, if not power.

The Explosive Psychopath

Low frustration threshold, resulting in episodes of uncontrollable rage and violent attack.

Episodes may be instantaneous reaction to frustration or perceived insult, and thus may be perceived by others as random and unprovoked.

The Malevolent Psychopath

Hateful, destructive defiance of values of social life.

inherently distrustful, ruthless, cold-blooded, revengeful, punitive.

The Malignant Psychopath

Often isolated, paranoid, with ruminative fantasies of power and revenge.

Sees others as inherently persecutory or treacherous.

Uses hostility as a means of armoring self, forcin adversaries to take issue and withdraw.

Okay I'll be waiting here to see who's gonna be the one who's gonna say they're "spineless".

Alright let's play.

I guess I have a bit of these in me too. Had a long phase that slightly resembled the "malignant" one, but I'm past it. I don't recognize the other ones at all in me.

I can relate to these three the most:


The Abrasive Psychopath

Prefers to be overtly contentious, confrontational, antagonistic rather than indirectly manipulative.

Expects hostility from others, and pre-empts insults with own abrasiveness.

Prefers to escalate arguments; experiences pleasure by frustrating others, making them back down.

Inherently oppositional to any form of emotional control; seeks to break constraints simply because they exist.


The Tyrannical Psychopath

Realizes pleasure through total control of others.

Employs violence instrumentally, to force perceived opponents to cower or submit.

Projects image of power or brutality; supports self-image of power and superiority by inflicting pain and suffering, if not power.


The Malignant Psychopath

Often isolated, paranoid, with ruminative fantasies of power and revenge.

Of course unprincipled, covetous, tyrannical, malevolent and malignant aren't intended as praise by psychs, they're just compliments on here. ;)

Lol!

Reading various comments on this sort of thing makes me think - i realised that sometimes I don't percieve my own behaviour 100% as accurately as I could do, which is interesting considering I'm not massively bothered by what PD traits I seem to have or not in most cases. Something to take away and think about there.

I might actually try to reply to some of these threads properly at the weekend.

i see elements of several in myself but especially tyrannical. i am all about power and control. I start getting domineering and mean when that's challenged.

Unprincipled (mainly)
Malignant

Although I'm not a psychopath lol

The unprincipled sounds a lot more like a Narc salesman to me
And the malignant side sounds like the Skizoid aspect to Narcissism (well as close as it can get although, not exactly because I do not see people as inheritly 'evil' because I am far beyond :wink: ).

I love how the italics make this even more dramatic.

I was thinking the same thing. If I were a 'path, I suppose I would be spineless, and probably lazy, too.

Does anyone know what the "fantasies of vulnerability" bit is about? Are those like masochistic fantasies, or does it refer to a longing for a trustworthy person in one's life?
