    A friend, therapist, once said I am a sociopath and I attract women with borderline syndrom.

    When I asked her what those terms mean, she said it is basically the same. Word sociopath is used for men and word borderline is used for women.

    So, to sum it up, I am a crazy psycho bastard and I attract crazy psycho bitches? :sad:

    I imagine sociopaths do attract an interesting selection of women

    Do you have any empathy for others that should answer the sociopath bit pretty easily

    I have heard that males with symptoms that in women would be attributed to borderline are diagnosed as anti-social personality disorder in men... probably due to the anger issue. However, anti-social personality disorder is not the same as being a sociopath, as they have no feelings for others etc and that is not true of people with anti-social personality disorder. And to be either borderline or anti-social pd doesn't make you psychopathic (ie psycho).

    I seriously doubt you are a sociopath if you are saying things like that with empathy and a sense of light-hearted humor. As well as self-doubt and the obvious need for love and acceptance.

    Nope, don't think you are one.... not referring to you, but there are some people who pretend they're sociopaths, because they admire the traits. Personally, I think wanting ASPD (Anti-social personality disorder) is the same as asking for depression, there same to a degree, with congruent results transpired:confusion, loss, loneliness...... just with different symptoms.

    I don't think you are a sociopath, because they never need any confirmation.... they may admit it, but they accept it, immediately. Just because you attract borderline personalities (which is actually different from ASPD), doesn't mean you're a sociopath, it's true that people with mental illnesses tend to attract other unstable personality types, but ASPD isn't the only mental illness known.
    As for your therapist friend, there is a possibility she could be wrong, because not all diagnoses are correct, if you need confirmation go to another/other therapists to get assessed, but then again, if you go that, you are seeking confirmation and sociopaths, never need that.
    Also, ASPD encompasses sociopaths, psychopaths etc. the modern term is ASPD.
    As for Angelina Jolie, I wouldn't say it's worth all the trouble, even if you were diagnosed with ASPD, you would have to bypass the paparazzi....the other fans etc. to commit. :p

    She is not MY therapist, actually, just old friend from campus that is now a therapist. And it was not an official diagnosis, just a coffee chitchat. Probably i got it because i kept greeting her on facebook with line "Hello Clarice, Hannibal here". :cool:

    But today she explained me some of her old romantic failures with men and I promptly diagnosed her with MSOS (Mexican Soap Opera Syndrome) so we're even.

    It sounds like she made a one-off comment and you stuck to it, because she is a therapist. Personally, I didn't know therapists could make diagnoses, I thought that was a doctor's/psychiatrist's/psychologist's job. You aren't a sociopath, like Silvio said if you were you would know it.

    I think it maybe a lit bit off topic, however, i think it is valuable to take a look at. It is about the way to attract the opposite sex. Please join here: how to attract
    :rolleyes:Hope you find it good!

    No. And hell no.

    You can be narcissistic and not be sociopathic (though many narcissists are sociopathic). If you're sociopathic and/or narcissistic you tend to collect people who are co-dependant, not borderline. And borderline is a trashcan diagnosis, which is even now being argued as symptoms of complex post traumatic stress disorder (which makes much more sense).

    Get a new therapist.

    My father is a sociopath.

    You are not.

    He emotionally abused and manipulated my mother for 15 years, leeching off her willingness to put him through school.

    He played varsity football because he liked hurting people.

    Got fired from his job in HS, so he robbed the place.

    Found running over a cat's head with a lawnmower to be "funny".

    And my dad is a narcissist, but not sociopathic. Thank God.

    I think the point of this thread was for the OP to call women with so called BPD 'crazy psycho bitches,' and similar to the sociopaths who might have abused them.
