“The PCL describes sociopaths as possessing a ‘grandiose sense of self-worth.’
Cleckley speaks frequently of the boastfulness of his patients.
Hare (1993) describes an imprisoned sociopath who believed he was a world class swimmer.”
2. Lying and insincerity
In a 1941 case a father described his psychopath daughter’s behavior as follows:
“I can’t understand the girl, no matter how hard I try.It’s not that she seems bad or exactly that she means to do wrong.She can lie with the straightest face, and after she’s found in the most outlandish lies she still seems perfectly easy in her own mind.”

They can be very effective in presenting themselves well and are often very likable and charming.
One of my raters described an interview she did with a prisoner: ‘I sat down and took out my clipboard,’ she said, ‘and the first thing this guy told me was what beautiful eyes I had.’
‘He managed to work quite a few compliments on my appearance into the interview, so by the time I wrapped things up, I was feeling unusually… well, pretty. I’m a wary person, especially on the job, and can usually spot a phony. When I got back outside, I couldn’t believe I’d fallen for a line like that.’”
5. Lack of empathy

“They are completely indifferent to the rights and suffering of family and strangers alike. If they do maintain ties, it is only because they see family members as possessions. One of our subjects allowed her boyfriend to sexually molest her five-year-old daughter because “he wore me out. I wasn’t ready for more sex that night.” The woman found it hard to understand why the authorities took her child into care.”(Robert Hare)
