Something does seem off about this test. How can a score of 1.5 be above average?

Is average like a 1.2? This doesn't feel right. Are people really such care bears?

Since this is a self-reported test people probably over-estimate their own empathy because no ego wants to admit being a careless monster. This is why most selfishness is done unconsciously.

If you give this test to the Taliban or a Nazi they will probably score a 1.2 :D

Does that mean a middle score is the best in this scenario? It's not to low to fool yourself but not too high to high to get banned right?

All psychopaths will be banned ;)

   I hsve taken the test, and answered each statement as quickly as I can, paused when the statement wasn't matched with my life experiences eo far. I also took the language test survey right after, which was even more surprising to me.

   Having trouble posting image with my phone so I'll state it instead.

   First part of psychopathy was above 81.5% average and score 3.3. The second part if psychopathy is 89.5% above average, also 3.3.

   Somehow I don't think the result is accurate.

   After completing the test, they also give a followup language test. I suggest to take that one too, because it basically tests what a strange word should mean to you, from two other words.

1.4 for both primary and secondary. Good to know I’m a moral person.

Your score from primary psychopathy has been calculated as 2.8. Primary psychopathy is the affective aspects of psychopathy; a lack of empathy for other people and tolerance for antisocial orientations.

Your score from secondary psychopathy has been calculated as 3.2. Secondary psychopathy is the antisocial aspects of psychopathy; rule breaking and a lack of effort towards socially rewarded behavior.

The secondary might be true but I don't consider myself a psychopath :D

The need to be normal and average can become so intense that that itself becomes pathological. The term for it is normopathy. The problem with normopathy is that most people are that way, so it is not even seen as a mental disorder

The same with religion. Most humans have religions, so having a religion is never considered as a mental illness. Having a religion is even considered good. How perverted.

It was difficult to answer because situations or contexts were not provided. When I encountered the question "Is money your most important goal?", I answered "strongly agree". But it is because I lost almost everything including money and opportunities as a result of a tragic divorce. My survival is seriously threatened. So, I need to prioritize making much money like an extreme Stage Orange bastard.

When I was asked "Do you feel bad when your words and actions cause emotional pain to others?" I answered "Yes" because I usually treat others with respect. But there were many times I felt very happy when my words and actions caused tremendous emotional pain to my dumb NPD father and other family members and bullies. I love inflicting pain to humans who inflict pain to others. And I love expressing love to humans who express love to others.

So, these types of tests are limited and can't capture the whole picture of the human soul, especially when you consider the truth that most people lack self-awareness and self-honesty.

But regardless, I am both very empathetic and psychopathic, depending on the situation. And I love being this way.

The questions are so broad and vague and reek of determinism, absolute horse shite I'm afraid ? (jk btw)

The notion of psychopath is as made up as is the notion of deviance being sexy.

Sometimes I feel my energy get high and I imagine the darkness as exciting.

To be honest, I don't think anyone on this forum is a full fledged psychopath. Psychopath probably wouldn't get much value from Actualized.org anyway.

As do I :P... Sometimes it's good to be a little bad.

Technically speaking though, I don't think psychopathy is "being bad" or enjoying "being bad", etc..  Maybe it incorporates a bit of that.  But from what I understand (especially from this one 'successful' psychopath that was interviewed), it sounds like they experience it as more of just not really reacting emotionally to things.  It's like they just plainly don't think or feel that, say, drowning an animal is bad.  If the animal is annoying them or is rummaging through their garbage, they have no emotional distress or dissonance in just drowning the thing.  They'd just be like "So I drowned a cat?  Big deal.  It was annoying and trashing the place, so I thought the best way to deal with it is to drown it.  Problem solved. What's the big deal?"

This one woman told a story of when she had a friend over and they wanted to go bike riding, but she only had one bike.  She noticed that her neighbor's bike wasn't locked up, so she just took it and went for a ride.  When they got back, the neighbor came to the door asking about her bike.  The psychopathic woman replied, nonchalantly and unphased, "Oh.  I took it."  The other woman started accusing her and threatening to sue her, but the psychopathic woman was a lawyer and just responded with "Well, acutally, if you sue me, then you'll have to go through this huge process and pay all this money, so it would be really unwise for you to do that."  And that was that.  It's like she has super-human levels of detachment from everything.  

I actually find psychopathic research pretty interesting.  Like, for example, they think that psychopaths have different brain and nervous systems than regular people, which makes them able to do things like be totally unphased if they get pulled over by a cop with a dead body in their trunk and not only act nonchalant but actually feel nonchalant on the inside. 

Here's the woman where that story came from:  there's several videos from her, so you might have to dig to find the video of the story.
