Confessions of a sociopath : a life spent hiding in plain sight /
M. E. Thomas.
|Main Author:||Thomas, M. E.|
|Vernacular:||An account of the author's life as a diagnosed non-criminal sociopath explains how her charisma and penchant for convincing lies enables her to influence and seduce others, offering insight into her system of ethics while advising readers on how to manage a relationship with a sociopath. As M.E. Thomas says of her fellow sociopaths, we are your neighbors, co-workers, and quite possibly the people closest to you: lovers, family, friends. Our risk-seeking behavior and general fearlessness are thrilling, our glibness and charm alluring. Our often quick wit and outside-the-box thinking make us appear intelligentâ€”even brilliant. We climb the corporate ladder faster than the rest, and appear to have limitless self-confidence. Who are weWe are highly successful, non-criminal sociopaths and we comprise 4% of the American population (thatâ€™s 1 in 25 people!). Confessions of a Sociopath takes readers on a journey into the mind of a sociopath, revealing what makes the tick and what that means for the rest of humanity. Written from the point of view of a diagnosed sociopath, it unveils these men and women who are â€œhiding in plain sightâ€� for the very first time. Confessions of a Sociopath is part confessional memoir, part primer for the wary. Drawn from Thomasâ€™ own experiences; her popular blog, Sociopathworld.com; and current and historical scientific literature, it reveals just how different â€“ and yet often very similar - sociopaths are from the rest of the world. The book confirms suspicions and debunks myths about sociopathy and is both the memoir of a high-functioning, law-abiding (well, mostly) sociopath and a roadmap â€“ right from the source - for dealing with the sociopath in your life, be it a boss, sibling, parent, spouse, child, neighbor, colleague or friend. As Thomas argues, while sociopaths aren't like everyone else, and itâ€™s true some of them are incredibly dangerous, they are not inherently evil. In fact, theyâ€™re potentially more productive and useful to society than neurotypicals or â€œempaths,â€� as they fondly like to call â€œnormalâ€� people. Confessions of a Sociopath demystifyies sociopathic behavior and provide readers with greater insight on how to respond or react to protect themselves, live among sociopaths without becoming victims, and even beat sociopaths at their own game, through a bit of empathetic cunning and manipulation.
