Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the universe.
11 as well.
15 out of a possible 33
Which they say is below average but based on what I'm seeing here is actually above average.
Btw, I watch a lot of tv shows about (fictional) psychopaths and they often make me feel like I'm a psychopath because they are always talking about affect and how the psychopath's is off and he's not doing anything I wouldn't be doing in the same situation.

I was 14/33. Of course I don't think a true psychopath would give themselves away easily in a quiz.
I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.
I got a 12, but I clicked the wrong thing, so I don't know if that's good or bad.
Trolling dates all the way back to 397 B.C. - People began following Plato around and would make fart noises after everything he said.
11 for me ...
What's the point in taking the quiz again, as the first answer that comes to mind is going to be your closest inclination. By taking it again, and changing your answers, that's like whoring for CoP points, innit? And I don't mean that any skaters are psychopaths, but I'm not so sure about some of the judges and ISU officials.
In any case, the proviso at end of the quiz assures us that there's nothing to worry about unless you score high in all psychopathic traits. And that some traits associated with psychopaths, are excellent characteristics for various and sundry occupations, particularly on Wall Street, unsurprisingly. Obviously, tho' nothing in life is as simple and easily measurable as taking a pop quiz.
All of this brings to mind, The Talented Mr. Ripley, as well as the scurrilous and scary character Jack Nicholson went up against in Chinatown:
Ya know, Mr. Gittes, most people never have to face the fact that at the right time, and the right place, they’re capable of ANYTHING!

oh dear, 23.... kind of disturbed by that.
^^ Keep reading after the quiz, don't be too disturbed.
I got 10.
When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.
Took it again and saw where 12 is low. It's pretty useless, since the MMPI (if that's still in use) uses something like 400 questions, but I'm happy to report that I am not currently suffering from sociopathy according to the internet.Because leesaleesa said she clicked the wrong thing, not that she thought about it and changed her mind. She made a mistake.
I'm no mental health professional but I suspect this quiz diagnoses narcissism more than psychopathology.
