He's Lying Next To You...The Difference Between Psychopaths, Sociopaths, and Narcissists

Psychopaths are more likely to maintain a "normal life"

Unlike sociopaths, psychopaths are more likely to hold a steady job and have a family. In some cases, their families might even be unaware of their true natures.

Some psychopaths are so skilled at manipulation that even those closest to them might not see them for who they really are. Although they are incapable of feeling empathy or remorse, they learn to mimic these emotional responses by observing other people.

It’s all an act, but psychopaths are incredibly convincing actors. It can be hard to tell that they’re not being genuine.

Furthermore, psychopaths are so adept at maintaining their composure under pressure that they’re unlikely to arouse suspicion. When a psychopath does something wrong, he’s so good at keeping his cool that others are unlikely to suspect him of wrongdoing. Even if he is confronted, he’s a very convincing liar.
