Cold-blooded

I have some quick survey questions for the sociopaths, mainly just curiosity as to objective physical manifestations of sociopathy. Answer as many as you wish. Feel free to email me answers if you want to get into more details that you would rather not be public. Some of the questions are red herrings (at least I think they are).

1. Do you have normal average blood temperature, run hot, or run cold?

2. Do you have normal blood pressure, run high, or run low?

3. What is your relationship to food?

4. Do you have corrected vision, i.e. glasses, contact lenses?

5. What is your tolerance to pain? Low, high, or normal?

6. Have you ever had stitches or surgery that could have been otherwise been preventable based on lifestyle choices?

7. Would you say you look about your age, younger, or older than your age?

8. Do you take cold medication? How soon after a cold do you start taking medication?

9. Do you have trouble sleeping

10. Which do you crave more, salty or sweet foods?

Any other suggestions?

  2. Misanthrope, there really isn't any harm in replying.

    1. Cold all the time. I'm used to friends touching me and exclaiming that I'm an ice pack. Even in warm weather.

    2. I have exceptionally low blood pressure.

    3. I eat a lot of junk, but I don't put on weight. I love food. I'm one of the slimmest in my year. Some people hate me for it.

    4. I wear glasses. I want contacts.

    5. High tolerance to pain. I'm pretty masochistic.

    6. No surgery or anything. Oh, I was born with an extra toe at birth that got removed. I can claim I'm a witch, so I like that fact.

    7. I'm fifteen. I look fifteen. I am really thin, though. So occasionally I get mistaken for younger.

    8. Boring question... I have a cold right now. I'm only taking paracetamol.

    9. I don't go to bed for ages, then I don't go to sleep for ages. I have better things to do, really. I'm going to be nocturnal when I'm older, I think.

    10. Salty all the way. Crisps over chocolate.

  3. I just don't see how this relates to sociopathy. But what the hell.

    1. Average

    2. not a clue

    3. I like food

    4. no

    5. I can handle pain better than most people(I don't enjoy it)

    6. yes

    7. I think I look about my age

    8. no

    9. sometimes

    10. salty

  4. I think you might have meant "body temperature" in the first question?

    Some other questions for an S survey might be:

    11. Do you wake up in the morning drenched in sweat?

    12. Do you abuse drugs like alcohol?

    13. Do you have great admiration for the aspergers people?

  5. Interesting... well let’s see:

    1. Always cold.

    2. Low, very low. I’ve fainted a few times because of it.

    3. love/hate relationship. I generally don’t like to eat, I think it’s a waste of time, but there’s certain foods I just can’t get enough of.

    4. Yes unfortunately. It’s genetic.

    5. Very high and I tend not to complain. I may say something with mild discomfort, but when I’m feeling actual pain I compartmentalize it or even kind of “shut down” until it goes away. When it doesn’t, well... I’ve fainted a few times because of it too.

    6. Fortunately no, I’ve been lucky.

    7. When I was a kid and until around 20 I've always look older, which was pretty useful. But after that I kind of “froze” in time. I guess I take very good care of myself.

    8. I rarely get sick. It’s been years since I've had a cold and I usually get over it without taking any medication.

    9. Never had problems falling asleep, but always wake up very early.

    10. Salt, by far. I love it, crave it constantly.

    I would suggest a couple more questions, like: do you like sun and brightness? I personally can’t stand too much clarity; and do you eat red/bloody meat? I love it. (Please refrain from vampire jokes and try to keep objective).

    ReplyDelete
  6. 1. Well, I get cold very easily (in fact to the point of being cyanosed in temperatures below 22'C).

    2. My 'normal' BP is the population's "low" (i.e. 100/60 in resting conditions).

    3. Food? I only enjoy the finest (that I can afford), and like to eat very slowly. Taste everything, make the bliss last longer... and on my 'psychotic mood swing' days I have a strange animalistic meat craving.

    4. Myopic (20/40). Wear eyeglasses. Uncomfortable with the idea of contacts.

    5. Medium tolerance to pain. Depends on mental condition/mood. When absolutely enraged, pain does not exist.

    6. Nope. (other than removing a benign tumor)

    7. Again depends on the mood. I guess I look my age when I'm 'normal'. Older when angry. Like a zombie actually.

    8. I don't need medication for anything other than terrible migraines or period pain. I rarely catch colds.

    9. Nope, I think I sleep too much in fact. Dreamer here.

    10. Mostly sweet foods. That too depends on the mood/time of the month.

    ReplyDelete
  7. 1. Do you have normal average blood temperature, run hot, or run cold? I don’t know. If you are really referring to body temperature however, I tend to get cold easily.

    2. Do you have normal blood pressure, run high, or run low? Normal to a bit low every time I have had it checked.

    3. What is your relationship to food? I don’t have one per se. On occasion I will really, really enjoy a meal. There is nothing quite like food cooked to perfection. But I don’t have that experience enough, mores the pity.

    4. Do you have corrected vision, i.e. glasses, contact lenses? I do wear glasses.

    5. What is your tolerance to pain? Low, high, or normal? I have been told my tolerance for pain was high.

    6. Have you ever had stitches or surgery that could have been otherwise been preventable based on lifestyle choices? Nope.

    7. Would you say you look about your age, younger, or older than your age? Now I am told that I look my age. When I was a teenager though, I was regularly told that I looked like an adult.

    8. Do you take cold medication? How soon after a cold do you start taking medication? No. I rarely get colds.

    9. Do you have trouble sleeping? No trouble falling asleep, but I do tend to wake up earlier than I want to, especially during the work week. I never use an alarm clock as a result.

    10. Which do you crave more, salty or sweet foods? Sweet.

    Any other suggestions?

    11. Do you wake up in the morning drenched in sweat? Never.

    12. Do you abuse drugs like alcohol? Drugs like alcohol? I drink on occasion, but I’ve never abused it. It wouldn’t do me any good since I don’t have an addictive personality and/or the biology required to completely lose self awareness.

    13. Do you have great admiration for the aspergers people? Only for you Aspie, only for you.

  8. Suggested question - Have you been told that you have a hypnotic or chilling stare?

  9. 1. ~97.2

    2. Low. Through my teens and early 20's I had measurements as low as 80/50, but now I'm more like 95/60, which is much more comfortable. Still low, but less fainting, puking when going from a cold space to a hot one, headaches, etc.

    3. Yum. I love to cook and also to eat. My favorite foods are Mexican chicken and rice, steak, and anything with guacamole.

    4. I do not wear corrective lenses. As a child I had binocular fusion disorder, so I did then, I currently have a mild astigmatism, and have been told that I will probably have glaucoma, but for right now my vision is 20/15.

    5. I have a high pain tolerance, though a person's pain tolerance differs for different types of pain. For example, I have a very high heat pain tolerance, high (but not as high) cold tolerance, etc. I haven't run a full battery of tests, sorry.

    6. Nope.

    7. I've lucked out here. Since I was 12, I have been mistaken for an adult, and just recently I was mistaken for a high-schooler. I've really generally looked the same since then.

    8. I do not take cold medicine.

    9. I used to. I'd say until about age 22, when I moved in with someone permanently on their own sleep schedule, which I was able to join for the most part. I've also developed strategies to combat the "noisy brain" that prevents me from falling asleep once I go to bed. Even still, I don't sleep a lot- maybe an average of 5 hours per night.

    10. Sweet- definitely.

    11. Nope- just a few times ever.

    12. Nope- still trying to get my man elected. :)

    13. Oh certainly. Aspie is my favorite and should be king. Actually, I have really enjoyed the company of the two high-functioning autistics that I've known. I haven't met anyone with Asperger's though.

    Stare Q: I've been told that I give people the creeps at times, but no one ever told me exactly why as I am usually quick to deflect and change the subject.

    Suggested Question 15:
    Do you work in a people-oriented job (Doctor, nurse, cashier, teacher), or a non-people-oriented job (Data entry, research, stock clerk, bus boy)?
    I primarily work in a non-people-oriented job, but sometimes teach a few classes to pick up some extra cash.

  10. 1. I seem to have poor circulation which leads to cold hands and feet, and I get cold easily.

    2. I have high blood pressure. Last time I checked I was in the severe hypertension range, though I'm normally in the mild range.

    3. I eat when I'm hungry. Occasionally for pleasure.

    4. I wear contacts.

    5. I would say I have a normal threshold for pain. Though I have nothing to compare to other than my own experience, so I don't know.

    6. No.

    7. I look my age.

    8. I don't often get colds, and when I do they aren't bad. I don't remeber the last time I took cold medication.

    9. Sometimes I will lay awake all night, but I will noramlly get to sleep okay.

    10. Sweet.

    ReplyDelete

    12. Yeah, i am a junkie. Not for alcohol but for other drugs. I always seek something to alter my mood.

  17. For the record I could have answered some of these differently in my younger years.


    1. Do you have normal average blood temperature, run hot, or run cold? Hot, always. 99.5 about.

    2. Do you have normal blood pressure, run high, or run low? High, but used to have a natural tolerance it seemed and not so much anymore.

    3. What is your relationship to food? I can get by on one meal a day for a long time. I seek nutrition more often than enjoyment. When I was younger this was different, I hadn't a care in the world.

    4. Do you have corrected vision, i.e. glasses, contact lenses? Better than 20 in one eye, 20 in the other. This may have degraded in the last 15-20 years but I haven't noticed much.

    5. What is your tolerance to pain? Low, high, or normal? Low, I often hurt myself to build it up a bit. Do not mistake this for "cutting", I did not use a blade and consider that stupidity for the world to see. My tolerance is also psychological, when I'm unable to control it it hurts much worse however I gave up the practice a long time ago.

    6. Have you ever had stitches or surgery that could have been otherwise been preventable based on lifestyle choices? 50/50, I was prone to fighting many years ago, and was always prone to infections.

    7. Would you say you look about your age, younger, or older than your age? For a long while, younger. Now, I'd assume my age.

    8. Do you take cold medication? How soon after a cold do you start taking medication? No, I rarely take medication of any kind however I once took vicodin for a cold and enjoyed the sleep :)


    9. Do you have trouble sleeping? Depends on the circumstances. I have more trouble waking up too early, but when I can slow my mind enough I manage just fine. I find the quality of conversations to be a big factor these days, without stimulation my mind enjoys itself too much.

    10. Which do you crave more, salty or sweet foods? Sweet.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Pythias, how do you know your body temperature? now i am curious about mine. i haven't measured it in years.

    ReplyDelete

    9. yes I get really bored trying to sleep and usually takes me a really long time.

    10 if its not candy i like salty food better i cant stand sweet food.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Pythias, how do you know your body temperature? now i am curious about mine. i haven't measured it in years.

    At the doctor and the like it's always been low 97's (F of course) unless I was sick. I have an ear thermometer at home, so I checked today and it was 97.2, so that's what I went with.

    ReplyDelete
  21. How often do you do something completely spontaneous? ie. take off for the weekend or go to a club that you never go to or rearrange all your furniture.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sent it by email, but might as well here:

    1. Cold, 96.6. poor circulation

    2. IDK, 121/90, whatever that means

    3. I love it, I eat a ton, high metabolism

    4. No, 20/20 vision

    5. VERY HIGH tolerance. I react slowly to pain, like the signals didn't get to my brain fast enough that something should hurt.

    6. Stitches once

    7. Younger, not by much

    8. I don't take cold medicine, I like to think I am immortal and can get well on my own, I always do. Jokes aside, I hardly get sick.

    9. Yes, insomnia is my best friend

    10. Sweet

    Additions:

    11. Yes, when it's hot outside, ghetto apartment.

    12. No, I have an addictive personality, I stay away for the most part. Used to abuse glue, canned air (huffing?)

    13. Sure?

    14. I hate the sun with a passion. I like brightness for good lighting when drawing, when inside that is.

    15. No

    16. Yes

    17. No job, just a student

    18. Sand surfing, climbing,snow boarding, and some jack ass stunts I did out of curiosity, if that counts.

    19. I love constant change though it may not always happen.

    ReplyDelete

    11. sleepy sweating - never.

    12. drugs, drink, - sometimes, not as much as i would LOVE to.

    13. aspies are people too.

    14. people say my eyes can look evil, dangerous, mischievous. lol. i'm nice though.

    i hate doing extreme sports.

    - i love dark places sooooo much. don't like brightness.

    - not great with change, no. it depends on the situation.

    - bloody meat? no way. well done please.

    ok, let's stop adding questions people.

  26. Sorry that was so random, everyone. I've just been pondering it a lot lately. I'm getting bored with "normals" and their predictable behavior.

    7. i look about 25% younger than i am. i am 27 and get told i look 21-22

    8. no

    9. yes

    10. weird but both, in fact i tend to eat a lot of both.

    ReplyDelete
  29. the only question i would like others to answer is if people get a "bad vibe" from you? i get told that constantly even though i am considered very good looking. i wonder if that is common for sociopaths?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Yes i get that too. my best friend in highschool was convinced i was going ot become a serial killer... i dont know why because i acted pretty normal i thought... btw ..not a serial killer

    ReplyDelete
  31. 1. low normal

    2. low normal

    3. off and on. either very high appetite or low.

    4. normal eyesight

    5. high for some types of pain, normal to low for others. (tolerate heat, nearly scalding water that others can't.)

    6. no.

    7. am usually told i look younger.

    8. that must be the red herring. :) sometimes. it depends on how much i need to function when i have the cold. but i rarely get them.

    9. yes.

    10. both

    11. waking drenched in sweat: occasionally.

    12. no. i went through a period of that in my teens then left it behind.

    13. of course.

    other sundries:

    extreme sports---not really.

    intense stare--i'm not sure. most likely so, my eyes tend to be a little intense.

    bloody meat: no.

    sunlight--i don't mind the sensation on my skin but i tend to have difficulties with brightness (eyes-wise, i suppose.)

    i can't remember the rest...

    ReplyDelete
  32. 1. Cold, usually around 96.7

    2. Low blood pressure

    3. I love food. I take it pretty seriously. It sounds weird, but I can get an almost sexual pleasure from eating really amazing food.

    4. I wear glasses.

    5. Somewhat high.

    6. No. I needed stitches once, but instead of going to the hospital I just kind of tried to seal it up with a bunch of Band-aids.

    7. I've always been told that I look older than I am.

    8. I don't take cold medicine. I just drink a lot of tea and wait for it to go away.

    9. Well, I tend to get about four, sometimes three hours a night, and I dream a lot, but I never have nightmares.

    10. Definitely salty. Even when I crave sweets the sweets I like are things like bitter dark chocolate... I can't stand anything too sweet.

    11. sometimes

    12. No, but I can tell that I could easily become an alcoholic. I am prone to addictions. Luckily, I've managed to avoid anything harder than caffeine, to which I am severely addicted.

    13. Well, I wouldn't say I admire them, but whenever I meet an aspie I find I generally like them, even before I know they are an aspie.

    14. Not really. My eyes are sensitive to sunlight... I don't mind sunny days as long as I can be in a more shaded area.

    15. I'm pretty indifferent to it...neither dislike nor crave. I eat red meat (medium) about once a week at home, and never at school (cafeteria meat is sketch).

    16. I have been told that the person "can't seem to look away" when we make eye contact, and that I seem to be "staring through them".

    17. I am a student, no job at the moment. In the past I've done part-time office work.

    18. hm... no, I wouldn't classify any of my hobbies as "extreme".

    19. I love trying new things.

    other questions...

    @socio steve: I do spontaneous things all the time. I'm very impulsive... and a little irresponsible.

    @anonymous: People don't get a bad vibe from me exactly. Nearly everyone likes me, even if they don't want to. At the same time, people feel like I'm "up to something" but they tell themselves they are imagining things.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Anon, i got a vibe of unsurety the first day i talked with my socio ex, his behaviour took a lot for me not to mention. i chose words like, 'you're funny,' to which he'd respond, 'no, i'm very serious.' lol.

    if the situation arose again, i'd feign ignorance, though nothing would be further from the truth.

    ReplyDelete
  34. @sociosteve i have always thought of the "bad vibe" or nervous or whatever you want to call it relates to our older parts of the brain in normal pathology. you could liken it to the same way herd animals get worried and twitchy about things that don't seem quite right. sort of like a line of defense for moronic masses, luckily they always ignore it or don't know what it is.

    ReplyDelete
  35. @anon- i got the same thing from people despite being good looking and actually very polite and nice to 95% of people. it is like a silly overreaction to something they don't understand...unless you were the unlucky 5% that is.

    ReplyDelete
  36. well it's quite simple really. predators sniff out prey, and prey sniff out predators. the more vulnerable the prey, the more heightened their senses are to a potential predator. but some prey can't help dicing with death, much like the predator and the cycle of life goes on. without risk, we all die out.

    i actually think that the bigger the risk, the more favourable the outcome. it's like fast-tracking your gene pool.

    ReplyDelete
  37. the only question i would like others to answer is if people get a "bad vibe" from you?

    I can make almost anybody like me if I want them too, but I've come across a few people who no matter how friendly I act towards, always seem to be very uneasy around me. Some have even told others who associate with me to stay away. One girl even told me once that I "sent chills up her spine" when she first met me(I still don't know exactly what she meant by that). I usually deal with these people by spreading rumers about them, or ignoring them completely, so as not to add fuel to the fire.

    ReplyDelete
  38. it's the combination of intensity and then emptiness that i think you'll find is the reason.

    it seeps out of you even if you don't think it does.

    it seems anomalous to people, particularly to those who don't understand emptiness ie. the emotionally 'full-up' types.

  40. The few people who have found something a little off with me are mostly still people I associated with. I don’t know the actual number because if someone chooses to leave my (for lack of a better word) presence I probably would not notice or I would just dismiss it as their problem. but the people who I am still close to that see something off seem to over look it or underestimate it. I also feel like I am good at getting their attention away from it.

  41. Anoni6:36 asked Have you been told that you have a hypnotic or chilling stare?

    You know, it just occurred to me that although no one has ever told me my stare is hypnotic or gives them chills, I have been told repeatedly that when my attention is turned completely inward and my mind is chewing over a problem, my facial expression looks mean. They would ask me why I am so mad or who do I want to kill (jokingly of course… I think…) and I was always nonplussed because I was never angry in those moments. I’d tell them that I was just thinking really hard about something.

    Perhaps that’s actually quite common.

    ReplyDelete
  42. i think people with certain personality types are known to be impulsive and as living in the moment, but i would argue that these people are rarely content in the moment, which gives them an air of being on edge, and i think this is partly what people unconsciously sense as well.

    what do you think?

  43. interesting answers to my "bad vibe" question.

    another would be what sociopaths think when dealing with other sociopaths? in my personal experience we have generally stayed clear of one another and it almost seemed as if there was an invisible line we were both well aware of that neither crossed. i have been around lots of very violent people who aren't sociopaths and they get very sketchy around me, mind you i am not big or physically threatening either. thoughts? this is very interesting for me.

    ReplyDelete
  44. my comment above was for notme.

    anonymous, that's an interesting point. perhaps the violent people sense you are more dangerous? we all always size each other up, empath or sociopath.

    ReplyDelete
  45. a person who is violent because he or she is out of control is a known risk. it's the unknown risks you have to worry about. if you can read people you can get an idea how far they will go by what's in their eyes. some people you can't push around.

    anonymous, they are a known risk to you. i am guessing that you may be perceived by them as an unknown risk. they also may not be able to control their violent urges. this makes you more dangerous.

    we can be consumed by our own types, empath or sociopath.

    if i met another strong empath, i would love sharing notes and it's always nice to know you're not alone, but ironically, i can become the sociopathic-minded one in that conversation too. we crave balance.

    Mine too. I don't like it when the people that I know behave unpredictably and out of the norm, it throws my world of balance. I just want too keep them under my thumb and have them do exactly as I want them too, when I want them too. I wish that I could just take them out and put them away whenever I feel like it.

  53. 1. Do you have normal average blood temperature, run hot, or run cold?

    Average not sure. My heart rate is 80 over 50 which seems very low.

    2. Do you have normal blood pressure, run high, or run low?

    Very low.

    3. What is your relationship to food?

    My diet is healthy. Minimal junk food & sweets. I like to be a model of physical perfection. Roman/Greek standards.

    4. Do you have corrected vision, i.e. glasses, contact lenses?

    None, my vision is perfect. I am 22, which is still young.

    5. What is your tolerance to pain? Low, high, or normal?

    Very high, the only time I cry is when my nose is broken or from physical trauma.

    6. Have you ever had stitches or surgery that could have been otherwise been preventable based on lifestyle choices?

    Few scars from brutal bloody fights and from competitive sports. Injuries from drinking.

    7. Would you say you look about your age, younger, or older than your age?

    Depends on my behavior and attire I choose. I can be whatever I want to be.

    8. Do you take cold medication? How soon after a cold do you start taking medication?

    I rarely get sick.

    9. Do you have trouble sleeping

    Never, even after a traumatic event. The only trouble sleeping was from the use of stimulants.

    10. Which do you crave more, salty or sweet foods?

    I crave red rare meat.

    I don’t think I would want to be with another P/S for more than maybe a one night stand. Try Aspies. Evidently they are less predictable. :)

    "bad vibe" from you?
    Occasionally, since I was a kid, though I’m well liked by most. I have no idea where this comes from.

    I have recognized a number of other P/S’s, though all but one were female, so I think that my… sociodar?... is quite limited. There is definitely a recognition of territory between me and the others I interact with (regarding positions in the company, allies, men, etc), and yes, we definitely make a point to stay off of each other’s toes and out of each other’s claimed domains. Interesting observation, Anon. When I’ve needed to, I’ve definitely sent other types of violent people (and some merely bitchy people) off with my stay away vibe. I’ve always been able to just look at the person for a while and they give up. I smile too. Maybe that’s what creeps people out? I have no idea.

    i also hate sounds coming from behind walls. i can't shake them off, even if they are low-pitch mumblings that i can't decipher, that's highly annoying. t.v, anything, i'm forever re-adjusting the volume on the tv or radio to get the right level i can take.

    well i'm not out to diagnose her, but thanks for the suggestion. i relate to her comment "we are destined to keep on associating with 'the other''".

    it's almost like being a reverse chameleon where you take on the characteristics that you don't find in the other. i did that more when i was younger. maybe it was an attempt to maintain a separate identity, a reaction to meeting someone that was too similar and feeling the boundaries or self being "swallowed" by the presence of the other person. young chameleon.

    i would like to experience a schizophrenic episode. no idea how you'd induce one though.

    notme, i don't know if hearing real sounds makes us clinically crazy. or were you just kidding? i think we're just unable to block out the background noises. it could be a form of hearing loss. or just the way our brains are wired.

    when i'm really relaxed or falling asleep, i also see sounds. if there is a loud noise i will see a lightning bolt or flash of light which startles me awake as much as the noise.

    yeah it's synesthesia as aspie pointed out. i read once that it can drive people crazy to have their senses crossed like that. it sounded so weird. the flashes of light are so normal for me that it only recently occurred to me that i have it. ha i wonder what numbers taste like?

    i also have tinnitus. i've had buzzing in my ears my entire life and when i'm tired it's very loud. i can't imagine life without it. it would be like having this big blank in my head. i think whatever way we're wired becomes the baseline or norm against which we measure our experiences. being overly sensitive might mean we're just predisposed to noticing the smaller changes in our environment.

    Slightly High

    3. What is your relationship to food?
    I like food, but I like not having to eat, if that makes any sense. Out of sight, out of mind, perfectly content.

    4. Do you have corrected vision, i.e. glasses, contact lenses?
    20/10 vision.

    5. What is your tolerance to pain? Low, high, or normal?
    High tolerance to most forms of pain, excluding burns.

    6. Have you ever had stitches or surgery that could have been otherwise been preventable based on lifestyle choices?
    If by lifestyle change, you mean not being violent, then yes.

    7. Would you say you look about your age, younger, or older than your age?
    Baby face.

    8. Do you take cold medication? How soon after a cold do you start taking medication?
    I prefer alcohol if it can't be effectively treated with antibiotics.

    9. Do you have trouble sleeping?
    Usually.

    10. Which do you crave more, salty or sweet foods?
    The last several years I've craved salty food more. For the longest time it was sweets.

    ---------

    11. Do you abuse drugs or alcohol?
    I binge alcohol on occasion, but not habitually.

    12. Have you been told that you have a hypnotic or chilling stare?
    Hypnotic, no. Chilling, yes. Not very often. Like Daniel, when I'm deep in focus, I apparently look really angry or ticked off.

    13. Are you involved in or have you been involved in extreme hobbies and activities?
    No. I'll let the thrill seekers find an early grave all on their own.

    14. Do you like trying new things, or are you averse to change?
    I adore trying new things in most facets of life. I'm always changing.

    15. Do you like sun and brightness?
    The only time I don't wear sunglasses is the evening or if I'm indoors.

    16. How often do you do something completely spontaneous?
    I loathe that word. Reminds me of dating shows. I do things compulsively every day.

    17. Do people get a bad vibe from you?
    Not many. It does happen though. Most of those people have refused to be anything more than civil with me, too, for no explained reason other than, "I dunno, don't like that guy. Something seems wrong."

    18. What do you think when dealing with other sociopaths?
    Pure context here. If it is a mutual or beneficial relationship, I try to be civil and sometimes nice, but understand the type of person I'm dealing with. If it is not a good relationship, I try to make it a lack of a relationship.

    19. What is your noise tolerance?
    Very low unless it is directly in my vicinity. My ears eventually deafen enough to handle it, but if it is out of reach, it drives me nuts.

    Thanks Zoe, but I've actually been able to use it to my advantage. Pre-Scarlett Fever, I had mediocre vision. Post, I've had better than perfect. My eyes are quite sensitive to light (it burns us), hence the previous statement about shade, sunglasses and a preference for rainy days, but I don't know if it's related. I also have quite the super-sniffer. I can identify colognes from down the hall and dinner from outside the building. :-P

    I saw a really neat discovery or tlc special on synesthesia- really neat stuff, but I'm glad it's not for me.

    Yeah, I've had tinnitus forever, too. Because of that, I usually have TV or radio or something on in the background to minimize the level of distraction from it. (Shouldn't I be able to ignore it after 20-some years?) Whatever.

    7. Would you say you look about your age, younger, or older than your age? If I go clean-shaven I look very young. Otherwise maybe the low side of average.


    8. Do you take cold medication? How soon after a cold do you start taking medication?
    No.

    9. Do you have trouble sleeping. Rarely

    10. Which do you crave more, salty or sweet foods? Neither. I don't like salt and sweets mostly make me feel hungry. Can I choose savory?

    11. Do you wake up in the morning drenched in sweat?
 Only if I don't sleep with a shirt on...


    12. Do you abuse drugs like alcohol?
 Sometimes? I haven't used meth or crack or heroin in years but I still drink a good deal. I also used to smoke.

    13. Do you have great admiration for the aspergers people? Sure.

    14. Do you like sun and brightness? Shade. But with my complexion I can practically feel the cancerous lesions growing in broad sunlight.

    15. Do you eat red/bloody meat? I'm mostly vegetarian. If it's a decent steak though I'll take it rare.

    16. Have you been told that you have a hypnotic or chilling stare? Eh, a few times when I was younger. I coached myself out of it though.

    17. Do you work in a people-oriented job (Doctor, nurse, cashier, teacher), or a non-people-oriented job (Data entry, research, stock clerk, bus boy)?
 I've done both. I don't have a real preference.

    18. Are you involved in or have you been involved in extreme hobbies and activities? A little bit of rock climbing. And when I was younger you might describe violent crime that way.

    19. Do you like trying new things, or are you averse to change? I'm not at all averse to change. I'm used to living in many different places, moving often, and changing what I do day to day. I don't feel like I seek change either though. I just need distraction. I need information/input from somewhere and I'm easily bored.

    For the record... I don't know if I'm a sociopath. I've been told I am by people who know me well. I fit a lot of the diagnostics. It's kind of subjective.

  90. 1. Do you have normal average blood temperature, run hot, or run cold? 97˚F

    2. Do you have normal blood pressure, run high, or run low? Low for my height and weight, but that places it at about the healthy average.

    3. What is your relationship to food? I have refined tastes, but I'll eat mostly anything. I enjoy extremely spicy food. I usually eat once or twice a day.

    4. Do you have corrected vision, i.e. glasses, contact lenses? Glasses

    5. What is your tolerance to pain? Low, high, or normal? High.

    6. Have you ever had stitches or surgery that could have been otherwise been preventable based on lifestyle choices? Had to stitch myself up once, but other than that, no.

    7. Would you say you look about your age, younger, or older than your age? People say I have a young face and old eyes. I don't know if that's poetic, or just a symptom of my lack of sleep.


    8. Do you take cold medication? How soon after a cold do you start taking medication? Yes. I don't get sick often, but I usually take it the first day the cold seems bad, if at all.


    9. Do you have trouble sleeping? I wouldn't call it trouble. I just don't sleep much. I can go to sleep easily, I just tend to stay up reading or watching something.

    10. Which do you crave more, salty or sweet foods? I don't crave food.

    11. Do you wake up in the morning drenched in sweat?
 No.


    12. Do you abuse drugs like alcohol?
 Abuse tends to carry connotations of addiction, which is inconsistent with my relationship with drugs. In the sense that I use hard and soft drugs when it suits me, yes, I abuse drugs.

    13. Do you have great admiration for the aspergers people? No.

    14. Do you like sun and brightness? I'm mostly nocturnal.

    15. Do you eat red/bloody meat? Yes. The rawer the better.

    16. Have you been told that you have a hypnotic or chilling stare? No. "Dead", maybe. Not hypnotic. I'm not a vampire, for fuck's sake.

    17. Do you work in a people-oriented job (Doctor, nurse, cashier, teacher), or a non-people-oriented job (Data entry, research, stock clerk, bus boy)?
 You could call it people-oriented, after a fashion.

    18. Are you involved in or have you been involved in extreme hobbies and activities? Depends what you find extreme.

    19. Do you like trying new things, or are you averse to change? I prefer change to stagnation.

  91. I'm not a sociopath but for fun I'll answer.

    Temperature-normal

    blood pressure-normal, 110/70

    I eat to live. I love Chicken Savoy.

    I have glasses for distance

    I have a high tolerance to pain...for what I've experienced anyway.

    Stitches as a kid in my hand. No surgeries.

    I look younger than my age..so I'm told...got chubby cheeks.

    I will take some meds if I need to. I have a kid so I have to take care. I take it as soon as I start to feel something coming on..just for a day or two.

    I don't really have too much trouble sleeping..too spent from school. But I do like to get some tv in so I stay up too late then I'm tired the next day.

    I like savory foods and chocolate.

    I abused drugs for a period of time as a late teen..then again in my late twenties. Once in a while I'll have a few beers and I'll take a hit of a joint if it's around but I wouldn't bother to buy any.

    I like the color purple!!

    I do like to work on my own.

    Yes, but wrinkles (laugh lines, frown lines, etc) generally come from repeated creasing from facial expressions.

    What struck me is that even the empaths here (our controls of a sort) reported looking young. I would have expected that from the socios and aspie, but not so much from them.

    Ditto.

    Pythias, perhaps it is because it is uncommon to remark on someone's age in matter of fact fashion. Flattery in regards to age, if only for civility, is fairly common.

    As a side note though, the beeper (bpd) I dated looked significantly younger than she was.

  102. it's genes and features and environment and a little about use of facial expressions. it makes me laugh when people place my age at anything up to ten years younger than what i am, as i know how much emotional shit i've been through, i feel like i'm eighty.

    they say 'what's your secret?'
    i say, 'pain and torture and lots of it.'

    i'm generally ADHD with films though, can't sit through a whole film without nipping out half way through for no apparent reason.

  120. 1. Do you have normal average blood temperature, run hot, or run cold?
    I think I'm a smidge below the norm.

    2. Do you have normal blood pressure, run high, or run low?
    Normal

    3. What is your relationship to food?
    Reasonable as far as quantity goes, but with regards to -what- I eat, I'm far from health-conscious.

    4. Do you have corrected vision, i.e. glasses, contact lenses?
    Nope.

    5. What is your tolerance to pain? Low, high, or normal?
    Pretty high

    6. Have you ever had stitches or surgery that could have been otherwise been preventable based on lifestyle choices?
    I've gotten stitches, but I was pretty young. Probably had more to do with being a kid than it did with being antisocial.

    7. Would you say you look about your age, younger, or older than your age?
    A couple years older.

    17. Do you work in a people-oriented job (Doctor, nurse, cashier, teacher), or a non-people-oriented job (Data entry, research, stock clerk, bus boy)?

    Some of both. I'm a designer of sorts, so my work is very project-oriented. I spend a great deal of time working on my own, but then I have to present/"sell" what I've created. I prefer working on my own, if that makes a difference to you.

    ReplyDelete
  127. i am an especially empathic person yes. and someone pointed out from the way i write and the things i say, that i may be a high functioning aspie.

    i am very obsessive about things and don't deal with change very well. for a few years i felt like there must be something a little autistic about me, because of those things. (i have a list of things i could tell you but i won't).

    but don't worry. i just thought you may have some insight into it, though i know it's a little ridiculous to expect you to know given this is just the internet and you don't know me.

  140. based on my experiences with my roommates ex-boyfriend/enemy, whom i might add is enjoying a stay at the "iron hotel", ah hahaha..
    i would ask
    "do you have strong opinions regarding bodily functions?"
    and
    "when you feel pissed off, do you have an uncontrollable urge to urinate or defecate on items belonging to the one you feel wronged you?"

    i, for the life of me, cannot understand why someone would do something like that. maybe an infant, but one would think that by the time your potty trained, it would no longer be something you would consider.

    i mean, the sociopaths on this site seem to be more refined, i'd hate to pollute your "label" with him.

  146. Interesting, aspie. Why did you have to learn to bury emotions to survive? (feel free to ignore me- I'm just curious over here)

    ReplyDelete
  147. 'This meme makes me feel so much more closer to you guys <3'

    aww.

    so, is no one gonna bring up the defecating sociopath then?

    ReplyDelete
  148. because their expression would not have been good for my heath as i saw then etc. oversensitivity maybe i think. not 100% sure about that

    ReplyDelete
  149. Pythias (mentioned again, yay)
    i'm glad you're as curious as me. we can divide up the questions this way.~

    ReplyDelete
  150. i am very sensitive, and i express my emotions outwardly.

    only in adulthood have i understood how others perceive this and that toning it down is useful. but i can't remove my emotions, i have to sublimate them.

    i don't bury, i do not have that approach at all. i sort of envy you your composure aspie.

    I think Ukan can speak for himself, dear.

  152. lols. no one did a funny :D

    ReplyDelete
  153. Uh-oh, aspie. Watch out. notme and I are double-teaming you on the questions :-P

    Thanks,, notme.

    Why would it not have been good for your health?

    ReplyDelete
  154. it's more dysfunction i think than some strong composure.

    ReplyDelete
  155. I know but, i'm watching yous, but thanks Pythias, you are very nice. Perceived dangerous environments etc.

    ReplyDelete
  156. the dysfunction is better on the other side. lol

    i often dare people to have my brain for a week, no, just a day, and come away from the experience and not pat me on the back.

    lol.

    ReplyDelete
  157. i'd accept the dare just to see how you pull off giving me your brain for a day

    ReplyDelete
  158. aspie, are you male, female or somewhere in between? i find you mysterious, like i want to prise you open. don't worry, i'm ever so gentle when i want to be. :)

    ReplyDelete
  159. truth is, wouldn't THAT be the best scientific breakthrough, to be able to switch brains with someone and see how they see the world?

    it might be hella boring though. gotta pick a good mind.

    ReplyDelete
  160. you sound a little "sociopathic" 2 posts above

    you sound a little angry in the post above

    ReplyDelete
  161. Sorry you two. My life is really easy to live.

    @notme
    I also find aspie all mysterious!

    @aspie
    I find you all mysterious.

    ReplyDelete
  162. no, not angry. just having a very curious moment, and perhaps enjoying the idea of being free from myself for a while.

    i agree, the first comment sounds sociopathic. but it's not an exclusive club is it?

    Pythias
    i officially resent you now.~

    ReplyDelete
  163. what happened to medusa?

    ReplyDelete
  164. she drank too much coffee and died of a heart attack.

    ReplyDelete
  165. that all sounds like an altoids commercial

    ReplyDelete
  166. that's not nice notme

    ReplyDelete
  167. i have a weird sense of humour aspie.

    i don't know altoids, i live in the UK.

    hey, you haven't answered my question about your gender. why so?
    i swear, it will be the last question i ask you. i am a woman of my word.

    ReplyDelete
  168. i think you are a fake notme

    ReplyDelete
  169. i am a woman of my word.

    She even bought her own ring. She knows how to keep her favorite parasite happy.

    ReplyDelete
  170. what makes you say that aspie?

    ReplyDelete
  171. your behaviour

    but good luck

    ReplyDelete
  172. oh well. Notable, aspie thinks i'm a fake. can you please convince him/her i am notme?

    i swear i'm not a fake, but if you think that, then sorry. i wouldn't mess with you.

    ReplyDelete
  173. @notme Resent away. But you (or we) are annoying aspie. :(

    @aspie "behaviour" :) I really like peppermint patties.

    ReplyDelete
  174. for the record. i am curious. no mal-intent.

    ReplyDelete
  175. oh no, i think i've made an enemy out of aspie.

    sorry aspie.

    ReplyDelete
  176. aspie is a tiny bug under a giant lens

    I have mal-intent all round

    ReplyDelete
  177. no, you haven't.
    i'm sorry too.
    i wish you well.

    ReplyDelete
  178. Wow- everyone is sorry now. Am I supposed to be sorry? If so, consider me on the sorry bandwagon. :)

    ReplyDelete
  179. I am not going to touch it.

    ReplyDelete
  180. all i asked was what your gender is. i like to know who i'm talking to that's all.

    for example i know the gender of all the non-anons here. what's the big deal?

    ReplyDelete
  181. Suggested questions:

    11. No
    12. I love coffee and I smoke pot. Alcohol it’s not my thing, only on social occasions.
    13. Don’t know any.
    14. Hate sun
    15. Love red meat
    16. I am told constantly that I make people uneasy, both in a good and bad way.
    17. I used to work with people and hated it.
    18. No.
    19. I like predictability in people and change in my life since I get bored easily.
    20. Don’t know if I’m a sociopath but I’m definitely not an empath.

    ReplyDelete
  182. you asked it in a nasty way

    you have an S vibe at times, sorry

    what do you know about medusa?

    ReplyDelete
  183. I'm lost. You people and all your feelings leave me running to catch up when I don't even know where we are going. :-P

    I am not going to touch it.
    I'm not sure what you are not touching, but I'm sure it is okay.

    ReplyDelete
  184. Hi Pythias.

    I was going to make a joke about everyone being sorry based on your earlier comment regarding everyone being young etc.... sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  185. @Grace- I think the movie question answers are really interesting. I personally get bored about half way through every movie ever and could care less how it ends. I refuse to go to movies with people because it's such a waste of my time.
    I do however adore the movie Closer. Everyone tells me "Jane" is fucked up but all I can think about is how perfected her persona's really are. I think I might actually worship her!

    ReplyDelete
  186. for the record, it's not exactly full-proof to successfully communicate ones intent via text only. i understand that. but i think you have been suspicious from the start (overly-suspicious) that i was trolling you, which i was not, not even for a single second. i am sorry you thought that.

    i have an S vibe you say? well, quite possibly yes, given how i am someone who is a mixture of all sorts of things. But as far as trolling someone who i know is themselves not also a troll, i would not do that.

    what do i know about medusa?

    if i recall correctly and i may be wrong, she likes coffee. I have nothing personal against medusa and very much like her contributions here. it was a throwaway tasteless joke. i don't know about the state of her heart and i hope it is just tickity-boo.

    i like you and understand your suspicions, but why do you need to be so guarded? sometimes, just sometimes, people are actually just nice, if a little too curious for your liking.

    but like i said, i understand your position.

    ReplyDelete
  187. aspie,

    you can't change this and you're not as tough-skinned as most of us on this site. i think it might not be a good idea for you to stay much longer, at least tonight.

    it's safe for most of us, because we're used to our own behavior. it's normal to us. sometimes we think everyone is as tough and can handle it. but i think maybe you could be hurt.
