Antisocial Personality Disorder

Antisocial personality disorder is a mental illness where you have a history of irresponsible and antisocial behaviour such as vandalism, cruelty, and so on. This continues into adulthood, with significant unemployment, failing to meet financial obligations and a serious disregard for the truth.

If you have antisocial personality disorder, you may appear cold, callous and often intimidating to others. You are likely to lack warmth and compassion and feel suspicious of these characteristics in other people. You will have a low tolerance for anger and frustration, and unable to delay gratification. You would be restless, easily bored and act impulsively to the point of endangering yourself and others. When things go your way, you are likely to be cheerful and even charming. However, when they do not, you get frustrated quickly, and provoked to attack. You see yourself as a victim, and do not take responsibly for your behaviour.

Some other potential signs of antisocial personality disorder include:
  • Failing to conform to the law, repeatedly behaving in a way that is grounds for arrest 
  • Repeated lying 
  • Using of aliases 
  • Conning others for profit or pleasure 
  • Impulsivity • Aggressiveness 
  • Reckless disregard for the safety of yourself or others 
  • Refusal or inability to hold down a job • Not sustaining financial obligations 
Having a lack of remorse for your actions It is unlikely for you to have a satisfying personal relationship, as antisocial personalities trust only themselves. You will ignore conventional rules and feel like social norms do not apply to you.
