It is hard to imagine having a close friend or family member who is actually a psychopath. While many psychopaths exhibit natural psychopathic tendencies, others are skilled in masking their real selves.
In the book titled Almost a Psychopath, psychopathy is described “as a psychological condition in which the individual shows a profound lack of empathy for the feelings of others.” Psychopaths also tend to “engage in immoral and antisocial behavior for short-term gains,” and are likely to show “extreme egocentricity.”
Yet, psychopaths may not display all these common traits as they go about their day-to-day lives. Not all psychopaths also end up as psychotic or criminals, though a lot of criminals turn out to be actual psychopaths. But if you’re wondering whether there’s a psychopath within your network of family and friends, check out this list of signs of psychopaths to watch out for:
1. They are quite charismatic.
Even with their dubious personalities, many psychopaths are able to attract people. They exude charisma and present themselves as approachable and easygoing, contrary to how they are often portrayed in movies.
2. They are chronic liars.
Is your friend or loved one constantly lying to you and others? Psychopaths are inclined to create stories and tell lies about nearly everything. It’s as if lying is their second nature.
3. They don’t feel remorse or guilt.
People normally describe a psychopath as someone who has no conscience. They rarely express guilt over their mistakes or sins. Instead, they would even turn the tables on you and make you feel guilty.
4. They are not empathetic.
Due to their cold nature, psychopaths find it hard to feel empathy even in the midst of a tragedy. Be careful of someone who cannot show concern to others in need.
5. They love to break the rules.
Psychopaths show little or no regard for rules, laws, and morality. They also tend to violate other people’s rights and not feel sorry at all.
6. They feel entitled and superior to others.
Psychopaths have a narcissistic personality. They will cut in lines, drive dangerously on the roads, and put others at risk without any care about other people’s opinions. They think they are better than you and everyone else.
7. They are inconsistent.
Another psychopathic tendency is inconsistency. If your loved one or friend constantly changes their job or residency, then it’s a red flag. Psychopaths also are inconsistent with their stories.
8. They find it hard to establish a close relationship with anyone.
While they may be charismatic and have lots of connections, psychopaths don’t have anyone to call a trusted friend. They also have trouble keeping close ties with their family members.
9. They can get angry fast.
While psychopaths may appear as calm and calculating, they can get angry pretty quickly. Getting angry may be part of human nature. But in their case, their anger can be dangerous and sometimes leave others feeling scared.
10. They make other people uneasy.
Many psychopaths give off a certain vibe that can make others feel uncomfortable or unsafe. If you know someone whose presence makes you uneasy in all your interactions, be careful as he or she may be an actual psychopath.
So do you know anyone in your circle who displays two or more of these psychopathic tendencies? What do you think are other telltale signs of a psychopath? Share in the comments section below!
Men in England Used to Sell Their Wives to the Highest Bidders in a Strange Custom
We’ve come a long way since.
From the late 18th up to the mid-19th century in England, there existed a strange custom of wife-selling. At the time, newspapers often carried stories of wives being sold to other men. In fact, between 1780 and 1850, about 300 wives were recorded as sold.
Divorce in England was not established until 1857, and before that, it was extremely costly and daunting to dissolve a marriage. The dissolution of marriage required a private Act of Parliament costing £3,000 (or £15,000 today) and the blessing of the church.
To avoid all this inconvenience, the average Englishmen turned to wife-selling.

Goldfish Can Turn Water Into Alcohol To Survive Cold Weather
Much like Jesus’ wine trick, right?
Everybody knows what goldfish are. They are among people’s favorite pets. But believe it or not, these water animals actually have the strangest of abilities. What exactly is it? Well, they can turn water into alcohol. You read that right, yes.
It turns out that they are capable doing it based on their current situation. This also proves that they share the same mechanism with that of a brewer’s yeast. This is pretty insane considering how insignificant people sometimes think of them.
When the going gets tough, goldfish resort to alcohol.
