I have never seen one in the movie... :) I think you can tell they are not real psychopaths, as actors are not psychopathic. :)
Generally psychopaths are very difficult to recognise not unless you have some experience, and they are often intoxicated. However I don't understand why we couldn't use them for certain research where you'd have to use clones to sacrifice instead that even though are not animals look like animals, nevertheless my cat agrees with the clonation of his own kidney or of cells from my kidney being transplanted into him so that he can then get better, as his kidneys have issues. But I only empathise towards non-psychopaths and animals. I would donate some of my kidney cells for my cat, since a rabbit donated him to the human.

I agree that real life psychopaths are are hard to spot. Because most psychopaths are not hardened remorseless criminals or serial killers, some make a living as Con men some are even corrupt businessmen or crooked politicians. Our former president Trump has at least some characteristics of a psychopath, and he’s most definitely a narcissist. I read a book about psychopathy that said despite making up 1% of the population they make up about 20% of the prison population in the U.S. and more than 50% of all murderers and rapist. And mental health specialist can’t seem to agree on whether or not psychopaths and sociopaths are one in the same or are different

I heard that they are different from each other but have much in common, a lack of empathy or remorse but while psychopaths are 100% void of conscience, sociopaths do have some conscience but it tends to be a weak conscience, and sociopaths tend to be more impulsive and hot tempered but a psychopath is more calm and relaxed even when angry. You’ll know it when you piss off a sociopath because they’re more likely to go into a fit of rage when angered, but a psychopath will be better at hiding their anger and they are not as impulsive as sociopaths.

Trump has BPD from my understanding so again he is not a psychopath!

Psychopaths are truly horrific people. It's hard to describe them. I think one politician may be, but I couldn't say I am sure and thankfully for you isn't even American, so you are kinda lucky compared to those people, but yes, I understand your expectation that you want the most perfect president in the whole world people are imperfect and that is because of the experiences we had due to the psychopaths harming us.

BPD together with Histrionic and Narcissist might say hurtful things. I think the most hurtful is still the histrionic, and the least hurtful is BPD as they at least empathise. Also the histrionic is the only one that admires the psychopath, and calls their victims "evil", nevermind. They are quite unempathetic, but it's a disease so yes, you must not take it seriously, unfortunately not so easy for everyone as they get exhausted, I have white hair from how many times the histrionic blamed me for having been the victim, it's almost ridiculous. The psychopath is still the major contributor but those comments don't help! And it doesn't make it easy as then psychopaths think you are an easy target because of the histrionic too.

But psychopath is absolutely disgusting and they don't suffer from any disease. Also they pretend to have empathy. Now I just get irritated by the histrionic and just say shut up as really hurt me and more and I know is unwell, but I mean, I am unwell too, I nearly had a heart attack and she said "it's nothing". Anyway, all my life she'd say that, and the psychopath would take advantage! Psychopaths organised criminals think you are a great target because of them too. It's not their fault, but they could get better, they refuse so nothing you can do other than focus on yourself eventually and don't listen to their advice, that doesn't help you, but most people may not be informed enough to be able to help you so best to inform yourself.

If it was for the histrionic I'd be dead by now, I never listened to the advice, because they can't even tell who is the psychopath! They say the victim is the psychopath, just the opposite, at least they don't act on it, but there are real psychopaths who act on it.

As a HSP I need my meditation time because I get distracted by others sometimes as I am the sole thinker in a small space at times, and I need my alone time. I can't just listen to nonsense all day long. I enforce my breaks often. But I do see others don't ruminate, they don't take breaks, and that is why they split, I think that is how you get cluster b, because they just forget the traumas.
