    This test is ****ing stupid; too lacking, too streamlined, too generalised.

    But I got a 45%.

    Of all the tests that can be self-administered, a psychopathy scale is not one of them :rofl:

    This kind of thing just breeds ignorance

    Conducted by Prof. Kevin Dutton so probably the most accurate internet test.
    The Hare Psychopathology Checklist (PCL-R) is the most respected I believe, and tends to be the most frequently used by clinicians. Probs quite easy to find online and should give a good insight.

    Although you can't answer the items in a questionnaire style, it requires behavioural observation. Which is the only way to accurately diagnose someone with psychopathy.

    It is not a diagnosable condition; it's like autism in that one is either high or low on the spectrum.
    It most certainly is diagnosable. There's a threshold.
