The quickest way to be discovered as a fake is to lack personality. Too many false psychopaths try to fit in by appearing to be prototypical. They attempt to win legitimacy through descriptions of lurid dreams and deeds without offering anything of what makes them, “them”. They are walking caricatures, devoid of individuality and sanity. They distort their cartoonish dimensions until they feel that others recognize them for what they must be: psychopaths. In reality they are not, however, and the trained eye can weed them out so quickly. Ultimately the reason they think that they can pull the wool over our eyes is because they believe it to be heresy to be an individual, non-prototypical and true.
Psychopaths are notorious for presenting patchwork “personalities” tailored to the situation and people at hand. Whether it is mimicking those around us or dredging the waters for cadavers we left long ago, our “personalities” are not so much ours as their are everyone else’s. In other words, we pick up the mannerisms of those around us. We subconsciously adapt our personalities to what we think others wish to see. The only consistency in our presentations is our inconsistency.
It is frustrating to not have a consistent personality. Combined with an unstable sense of identity, it becomes truly difficult to know who you are as a psychopath. I have a mask of the neurotypical and a raincoat made out of those that I’d long written off as dead. Whatever you may think of me, I certainly do not. I think nothing of me, for I know not who I actually am.
