I make more than the rest of my family combined, yet I’m always looking for handouts. I pay my debts only when the proverbial gun at my head. As a psychopath, I always take more than I give. I, and my brethren, are delightfully parasitic. When you think of a parasite, you undoubtedly think of something like a mosquito. It draws blood from its host and gives nothing in return. It must do so in order to live. However, the host rarely cares about the well-being of the bloodsucker.
This parasitic ability is found in nearly all of the psychopath’s actions. From the one-sided relationship with benefits to the power dynamics exerted in business, the psychopath at all times looks for ways to receive more than they give. Neurotypicals think of symbiotic relationships and exchanges of power where each party gives reciprocally to that which they receive. This is unheard of for the psychopath unless there is a benefit to be had in the grand scheme of things.
