  4. This blog has been a laughable mind fuck turned to in your face advertisement. Mormons, Monicas, MEs, and Multiples galore. Its a train wreck. And who doesn't enjoy a good train wreck.

    1. The question is, who can take a daily train wreck? Only, narcissists and sociopaths.

    2. " M. E. Thomas is a diagnosed sociopath and the founder of SociopathWorld.com. But she is not a killer. Quite the contrary, she is an accomplished attorney and law professor who writes regularly for major law journals, donates 10 percent of her income to charity, and teaches Sunday School."

      This train just keeps right on plowing. I love it.

  5. Have you ever thought about creating an ebook or guest authoring on other blogs?
    I have a blog based upon on the same information you discuss
    and would love to have you share some stories/information.
    I know my readers would appreciate your work. If you're even remotely interested, feel free to send me an email.

  6. "M.E. Thomas is proud to be a diagnosed sociopath. In fact, she has made it her mission to convince people that the vast majority of sociopaths are neither criminals nor creepy. They are much more likely to be high-functioning, risk-seeking people, not cold-blooded killer or animal-torturers. In fact, on her Socialpathworld.com blog, she contends that these generally law-biding men and women "hiding in plain sight" constitute a full four percent of the U.S. population. In Confessions of a Sociopath, she escorts readers into her own life and the lives of other sociopaths. A provocative look at outsiders."

    ROFLMAO!!!!

    1. This will be 90% of any Reddit interview she tries to do. Also, they will try to track her activity and determine her identity. Sociopathworld is sufficiently anonymized, but she might have trouble with Reddit.

  9. I'm confused ME. You said in the past you were not abused. The following, from your book, is not abuse? Think again, or ask some normal person:

    I was the middle child in a family with a violent father and an indifferent, sometimes hysterical, mother. I loathed my father. He was phenomenally unreliable as a breadwinner, and we often came home to find the power shut off because we were months behind in our electricity bill. He spent thousands of dollars on expensive hobbies, while we were bringing oranges from our backyard to school for lunch. The first recurring dream I can remember was about killing him with my bare hands. There was something thrilling about the violence of it, smashing a door into his head repeatedly, smirking as he fell motionless to the floor.

    I didn't mind arguing with him. I made it a point not to back down from our confrontations. Once in my early teens, we argued over the meaning of a movie we had watched. I told him, "You believe what you want," then left him. I slipped into the bathroom at the top of the stairs, shutting and locking the door. I knew he hated that phrase (my mother had used it before), and that my repetition of it presented the specter of another generation of women in his house who refused to respect or appreciate him, and instead despised him. I also knew that he hated locked doors. I knew these things would damage him, which is what I wanted.

    "Open up! Open up!" He knocked a hole in the door, and I could see that his hand was bloody and swollen. I wasn't concerned about his hand, and I wasn't glad that he was hurt either, because I knew that it gave him satisfaction to be stricken by such passion that he could disregard his own pain and suffering. He kept working at the jagged hole until it was big enough for him to stick his face through; he was smiling so widely that his teeth showed.

    1. notice how they did not answer your question- found that quite conflicting as well- says they are not abused, yet the facts prove otherwise. very twisted (non)logic.

  10. ME as alterego of MonicaMay 13, 2013 at 9:05 AM

    Oh, well. This completely explains to me what ME is all about.
    http://www.psychologytoday.com/articles/201305/confessions-sociopath

    Raised by neglectful and absent parents, smart and aware that those two did not deserve any respect (and, yes, if no respect for parents you have no respect/care for others), able to rely on herself all the time. Both genes and ubringing. What gets me is that she still sees her parents as normal and herself the high achiever sociopath, as opposed to a normal child damaged by her parents. It is that power hunger and avoidance of being a victim, a complete opposite of Monica.

    1. Then M.E. made the choice to become a sociopath because she chose not to trust.

    2. Exactly. She is not your 'born that way' sociopath. SHe is just a smart girl who had to learn to adjust to some shitty parents.

      Delete
    3. Being intelligent does not automatically bring a person fulfillment and happiness. Gaining wisdom is the key. Evidently, her/his parents did not "learn" how to parent and can use that as their excuse?

    6. Yes, I have beauty. I'm humble, too.

    8. I think she said she had the genes AND the environment. That is why she became who she is.

      I want to know, who diagnosed her. Was it when she wanted to join the government ?

  12. "Can't really afford to make excuses for yourself if no one else will honor them."

      I Couldn't believe it when I was watching Dr.Phil and it said Confessions of a sociopath so I went to his website and it said somebody with the surname M.E. was writing a book and I thought "How many sociopath in this world use the surname M.E.?" I knew it was him/her (Apparently it is a her now, it used to be that nobody knew what sex she was!) I came here and I saw it, that is great, Iam definatly going to read it!

    9. Anon @ 2:14 and 2:19, If you read my posts above you will see that I havnt checked in to facebook for at least 6 months. I actually hadent checked my facebook for a couple months before I even "disappeared"........ I don't talk to many people on there, I mainly talked to Monica and her and I were talking on SW so I haven't checked it for a very long time.

      Monica- Thank you very much! Iam feeling your good vibes and loving them!!!!

      Had anything crazy happened since I left?

      Delete
    10. Why did you mention that you didn't die of an overdose?

      Delete
    11. Umm Let's see. Crazy? Well, SW defines crazy, Rich, so just jump back in the loop and boogie. MBrig was the one who said you were dead. He said he was your friend and you died of a methadone overdose. Themes gave you a beautiful song and I cried. Everyone was really sad and no one posted on SW for many hours as everyone was stunned.

      Delete
    12. Anon @ 2:55- I mentioned I didn't die from a drug overdose because everybody who was a regular on this site knew Iam the druggie of sociopathworld and if I were to die at my young age (Iam 24) it would most likely be from something unnatural, especially drug use/abuse considering my reputation here ;)

      Monica- LOL! You are right, SW does define crazy AND MORE! LOL!

      That is crazy that M.Brig said that! Does he still come here?!?!?!?! I didn't die of a methadone overdose (well I didn't die at all, overdoses aside)....... That is streange that he said that, I wonder why he did?!?!?!?! Either way, Iam not mad at him or anything if he said it, I just find it kinda funny that he would make such a thing up! lol!

      But as I remember M.Brig is a good guy so maybe he just thought I died of a random methadone overdose, hell, I wouldn't be the first one......... I take 110mg's of methadone everyday and for some people that would be fatal, people have died from less than 40mg's and I function on 110mg's, that's kinda scary, especially when I mix it with Xanax, alcohol, and Temazepam....... Although it is a strange day because Iam going to see my doctor tomorrow (Not my methadone clinic doctor, he only prescribes me methadone) I go see my general practitioner tomorrow and he prescribed me #30 2mg Xanax and #30 30mg Temazepam, but I have actually weaned myself ALL THE WAY OFF of temazepam (I would take them at night for sleep, that's why I got them) and I have weaned myself down to 0.5mg-1.0mg of Xanax a day and Iam prescribed 2.0mg's a day so Iam doing well with the reduction......

      The only thing that bothers me is when I wake up in the worning and my hands are shaking from moderate-severe tremors, the alcohol and Xanax causes that, but when I take the Xanax the tremors calm down, they don't disappear, but the significantly calm down.

      I thank you Monica and Themes and everybody else who was worried for me, that is very sweet and kind of all of you. But, Iam okay, Iamhere, Iam alive and Iam BACK!!!!!!!!

      :)

    13. Ya know, Monica didn't really care about your death. She made one message saying she felt haunted about your death, to gain sympathy. Then forgot you even existed. You can check your facebook messages if you ever get access to your account, and check how many messages she actually sent to you, to show how much she cared.

      Delete
    14. And she made a joke about your death, too.

    15. You guys are so bad. Rich knows I am crazy about him and that is all that counts, not some dumb Anons. I feel very happy today and I am gonna call my SW girlfriend and tell her.

    16. She's lying. So much of a good actor, but a liar as well.

    17. LOL Anon, if Monica made a joke abut my supposed death and you guys got some laughs and kicks out from it Iam not bothered!!!!! I know Monica loves me and if she was joking its all in good fun, especially in the sociopathic setting of Sociopathworld! LOL!

      You have an SW girlfriend now Monica?!?!?! Interesting!!!!! :)

      I see people here are still giving you a hard time but you stay and accept them with patience or ignore them anyway, some things never change! LOL!

      Anon why don't you make a Username so we can know who you are? All you need is a Gmail account (That's how I do it) but I guess you could do it from other ways too. It just confuses me when I see a bunch of Anon's posting because I never know if they are the same person or not.

      Delete
    18. My g/f is a long time SW member, right from the beginning of SW. It is a platonic g/f, lest anyone get the wrong idea.

      I would never joke about your death, Rich. Actually, I was very traumatized because you are so young and beautiful with your life ahead of you. I sound like cheap platitude but that is how I feel.

    2. Hi Rich. Welcome back ! You should look on the site the day people thought you were dead. It make me think what happens when people commit suicide and dont tell their loved ones.

    2. How do any of you know if anything is straight on this site? I see you do "lol"s and talk about being glad someone isn't dead etc. however, isn't that contrary to the very nature of sociopathy?
      Damn. I am so confused about the true nature of this.
      Is there anything "real" here? I need to understand this (for personal reasons) but don't know whether to trust anything from anyone on this site.
      One thing I did enjoy was the quote: "there are no victims, just volunteers."
      No shit about that one, unfortunately!

    3. firstly, not everyone on here is a socio. and secondly, socios can feel glad and happy, if someone that amused them turns out not to be dead it is a cause for happiness. we arent robots.
