Test: Spot My Criminal Personality!


Can you spot what kind of person I am? Can you tell if someone you know is a criminal? That's what Forensic Profiling deals with, but you can test your skills right here.

...Or maybe not.
An acquaintance told me about a test he found while looking for material to a project in his criminal profiling class. He told me the first question and the four possible answers had made him think of me, and after doing the test he decided to show me the test. 
It is a test where you can learn if someone you know fits the profile of a criminal sub-type, and when I'd read it through I decided it might be fun for my readers to do this test and see how close your impressions of me, your gentle host, is to the profile of the criminal sub-type presented in this test.

You can use the test as many times as you like and test your awareness about people you know such as friends, colleagues or perhaps your family members.

Before I give you the test I want to mention that my acquaintance don't know I have been diagnosed as a psychopath, nor does he know that I have committed any crimes other than minor theft in my youth (because that's what I have told him).

I will also say that this test is a popularized test based on knowledge gathered by proffesionals researching and working with criminal profiling, and therefore it may not be possible to answer absolutely correct about me or others who are not criminal, nor about people who are criminals, for that matter... (yes, I do not consider myself a criminal and never did, but that's another discussion).

Let's get started with the test...

I will publish the "correct" test results as they should be if I or the person you did the test about fit/s the criminal profile the test is based on - as well as the result in regard to myself as it actually looks in comparison with the criminal profile of the test - on: 
Monday, May 7.th.
Evening or late afternoon. 
.....................................
Nb. The past couple of weeks following upon my release from jail have been hectic and I have simply not had the time to write or publish. However, if I want to live a good life and remain free in the future I will have to continue my work on Psychopathic Writings, so my absence is most definitely not a permanent thing! 
I haven't forgot anything about the projects I have begun. Most Part-2 texts for previous articles are finished and ready to be uploaded, I will publish these articles in the coming days and weeks.

We should be able to choose more than one answer. F.ex. the question about your financial situation, I would've said you're wealthy but often struggle with legal financial problems.

This is my first post. But I have followed your blog for many months, and this is my impression of you.

I love you, Zhawq. And I can't believe that you cannot be saved. All people can be saved! I see a lot of goodness in you, you just need time and someone who will be patient with you.

I know most people think psychopaths can not care for others, but I'm sure you can. If you couldn't, I wouldn't have seen the beauty in you in spite of the horrors you describe.

Another reader wrote that he would like to read more about your childhood, how you were abused. I would too. It would be very interesting because I am sure you have gone through a lot and that it's the reason that you became so bitter and hateful that you had to commit so horrible crimes as you have described.

I believe there is a meaning with you having been given the chance to get released and participate in psychopathy research and share your experiences with the public.

Many people think you're just using everybody, that if we talk to you you will abuse us. But all I can say is that you have always been nothing but nice and polite to me.

Ray Jackson said...

Q: When you first meet this person what characteristic best described him/her?

Charismatic, charming.

I would've said humorous and easygoing too, but you can at times be very assertive and a little intimidating.

Q: Which word best describes how this person most often presents himself?

Street wise.

You also have some very intellectual traits, but street wise is probably most fitting because you know a lot about how to get around on many social levels.

Q: Have you ever suspected or caught this person lying?

Often - to keep from getting in trouble.

This is mostly assumption, but it seems to be the obvious choice about someone who's a psychopath and with your background.

Q: What best describes this person's employment history?

White collar executive.

I don't know how you've build your wealth, but it's obvious that you don't suffer in poverty.

Q: When dealing with people in positions of authority which best describes how the person reacts?

Resentful of people in authority.

You can seem respectful, but I think that's your way of avoiding problems with the authorities who monitor everything you write and say.

Q: Which best describes this person's financial situation?

Wealthy, sometimes flamboyant, rarely speaks about being over his head.

This is just because I know you're wealthy, it doesn't mean you're not sometimes struggling which I recall you said you've been sometimes.

Q: When dealing with his failures such as a loss of a job, bypassed for promotion or failure in school this person reacts...

Learns from his mistakes and shows personal growtrh from the experience.

I know psychopaths are said to never learn from their mistakes. But I don't think you could give me the guidance you have if you hadn't learned it yourself first.

Q: When speaking about childhood memories this person appears...

Reflective and generally speaks positively about his childhood.

This is from what you write in your articles. I haven't talked with you about this other than one time where you were vague and didn't seem to want to talk about your past, so I didn't ask again.

Q: Select the phrase which best describes how this person is in his intimate relationships such as marriage.

Seems to love his mate, but has had occasional flings.

This is the impression I got when you told me about the woman you met several months ago. It was sometimes impossible for me to get through to you because you spoke for hours with her, hehe.

Q: You have observed this person...

Directly point out a potentially unsafe situation to others.

No need to add anything, except maybe that I guess it can be something you only started to do after you began this blog and started giving advice and guidance to those who email you about it.

Q: Which best describes the person?

Is moderately careful about his health, an occasional drinker.

I'd have chosen the 1st answer too because I know you've started to do a lot of work out.

Q: Choose which best describes this person after you got to know him.

Nice, honest, caring, responsible.

And you're always charming, but you haven't been deceptive toward me. I'm sure you can be, but I think it depends on the person you're talking with.

The test was a fun idea, and it's going to be fun to see the final results.

Do you know anything about psychopaths at all? Intelligent psychopaths always have pawns that they're nice to because that way they always have something to fall back on when things get hot around them because of their abusive ways and criminal behavior.

He's not "nice"! Zhawq is not "nice" and he's only polite because he thinks (knows?) he can use you!

Psychologists and law enforcement call psychopaths dangerous for a reason.

Learn what you're dealing with, girl!

Zhawq is dangerous, and you're asking to be hurt if you keep playing with the polluted fire he spreads!

I can't say it any clearer than that, and it's heartbreaking to see people risking everything because they get drawn in by a psychopath's charm.

Yet, nearly all pyschopaths whom're diagnosed are those who display criminal behavior. There is thus bias here, much like how the study on Klinefelter's syndrome patients were percieved as being violent, but then they realized that they were only testing prisoners. Say, you feel no guilt or empathy. Some might have enough sense of self preservation in order to avoid incarceration, and in fact work around it. Non pyschopaths cheat and sleep around too. Guilt isn't the only thing keeping you from doing things, except mayhaps in a anarchist society. Now, think about it, people are more likely to make you happy if they're happy. If they aren't happy, they can be susceptible to manipulation, true. But one must balance this. You cannot judge someone pre-emptively a certain way. A pyschopathic criminal is dangerous, true, but aren't all criminals? Aren't all diagnosed pyschopaths criminals? Why? Because pretty much all diagnosed pyschopaths get diagnosed after being criminals. People vary, no matter what disorder they have. All depressives, aspies are not the exact same carbon copy. All have varying degrees.

Oh, and I noted the part upon people to fall back on, pawns. This is true, however... I find myself with no real arguement against this at all. How is this wrong? Sure, you'll be used, but if they don't keep you happy, it won't work. The failures of a sociopath... Now, pardon my early anonymous comment, after posting it I noted I wouldn't be able to get an email notifying me of replies. That'd be quite the pity..

"Do you know anything about psychopaths at all?"

I was married to a psychopath for 5 years and have known him for 8 years. I didn't know he was a psychopath until I was at a seminar about it. I only went because I had a friend who studied to become a therapist. She suddenly said to me "That sounds like your husband!".

I was totally shocked at first and refused to speak to her for two months. But I couldn't forget what I had heard and suddenly things began to make sense. It was over 2 years before I got divorced.

I got my husband to join couple therapy with me and we went to three different psychologists. But all three said it was me who was too demanding and difficult to live with. They just bought everything my husband said, just like all our friends and everybody else except for my sister.

Then my friend told me about two books, "The Sociopath next door" and "Without Conscience". After I read them I began to look after more information on the Internet and found some forums.

But I felt they were too, what can I say, too strict about everything and they all thought psychopaths couldn't be saved. They also wanted me to leave my husband and never let my kids see him ever again. I couldn't bring myself to do it, and said I needed more time. But those people on those forums became very cold and suddenly weren't so friendly anymore.

I felt they were trying to force me to do what they thought was right and that only made me feel more alone. I asked them if they weren't aware that everybody can change and that it isn't our right to judge others, it is God's right, not ours. I also asked them if any of them had tried to understand the psychopaths who had abused them, but they didn't think there was anything to understand.

I realized that people think psychopaths aren't human, and that was a horrifying way to look at another human being in my eyes.

I began to look for something written by psychopaths, and that's how I found Zhawq.

I don't know everything about psychopaths, but I know they're human beings and the bible says everybody can be saved if they really want it with all their heart.

I know Zhawq doesn't believe in Jesus as his personal savior, but he has gone a far way since he started this blog. Patience is the most important with so damaged souls as Zhawq's.

I still read books and other things about psychopathy, and I'm learning something new all the time. I know that psychopaths use people, but I don't see how Zhawq is using anybody or myself. He has only been nice to me and he's nice to everybody who are nice to him. That's how he's been all the time. Are you saying he is using every one who read his blog? I don't think they would come back if he did.

There is one thing people forget when they think a psychopath can use me. I cannot be used because I have the one Lord Jesus Christ and He's the only one who can use me. He is behind everything I do and say. He saved me when I thought there was nothing to live for. And when my husband got custody over my kids He send me to this blog because he guides my every step. It was through Him that I found Zhawq and it is thanks to Zhawq that I have my kids back and am living a new life as if I was reborn.

"Learn what you're dealing with, girl!"

I have been seeking to learn from people who aren't psychopaths but who give advice about how to deal with it if you live with one, and I did learn some things from them.

But I'm glad that I finally began to learn from one who has the psychopath character traits himself.

Zhawq is very, very rare because he has the diagnosis but can rise above it despite he has lived like a psychopath with a very high psychopathy score, and that's why I think we're lucky and I thank God that he gets to keep this blog.

My heart goes out to everyone that he has hurt in the past and there are some posts that I can't read all through. But we have to try to understand. And he is trying to open his heart and confess his sins. I am sure he will repent with time. God has a plan with everything under the sun.

Dear anonymous, I can tell that you wish me the best and you sincerely want to warn me, and I appreciate that. But I don't know how to explain to you that I'm not in danger and I don't believe for a minute that Zhawq would ever hurt me. I think that if you return and read his blog for some weeks or a few months then you'll see it too.

I don't believe Zhawq is dangerous anymore. I know he has been dangerous when he was younger, and I'm not so thoughtless that I would go home with him alone or meet him alone. Of course one has to be more careful when someone has killed people and is a diagnosed psychopath, I'm not saying people should go and meet Zhawq alone, for example.

I think Zhawq understands why I say this and that he won't be angry because of it, for we have to be realistic too.

Like you say, he's intelligent but God is the most intelligent of all and that's why I listen to Him first and He's the One who guided me here. I believe there is a purpose with everything and everybody are here for a reason. Zhawq has helped me with my case and gave me advice when I was in court about my children. Even my lawyer asked a question that Zhawq helped with and today I have my kids and my husband will never get custody. They visit him and he visits us but it is always supervised.

Thank you for your thoughtful caring post.

God bless,
Christina

I'm not sure if I understand what you mean but it sounds sweet so I'll say thank you, Sighing Person. :)

And I love to dance. :)

I tried to find out what bactrii means but I only found something about a bacteria or this about cloning (it's just a Google page): https://www.google.com/#hl=en&sa=X&ei=Riu3T6KOK4-LswaXhM2hCA&ved=0CAQQvgUoAA&q=bactrii&nfpr=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.,cf.osb&fp=c9d3afd629fd5a6f&biw=1920&bih=955

I'm sorry if I sound uninformed but I don't know anything about cloning and I only know the common things about bacteria like you can for example catch a cold or get pneumonia from both bacteria and virus.

It is a very interesting website you have posted, and I think Zhawq will like a lot of the quotes there.

God bless,
Christina
