The first of the three categories of Sociopaths, in terms of how successful they are in achieving individual goals, and avoiding punishment for their actions.
ACCOMPLISHED SOCIOPATH- Is by far the most dangerous to a civilized society. Throughout their lives, they have learned to direct and use others to act on their behalf.
This is done in such a way that no one realizes they are being manipulated, and few negative consequences fall upon this type of Sociopath.
However, what really sets the Accomplished Sociopath apart is their ability to direct blame and responsibility for actions they commit, onto others who are completely innocent. This is often done by duping others to aid them in the persecution of the individual being targeted by the Accomplished Sociopath. Families, Friendships and Business relationships are destroyed by this insidious fiend.
Unfortunately, the Accomplished Sociopath may go through life unidentified, free to unleash havoc on humanity. The real sad part of the story is that many people think they are to smart to be conned by such a person, and refuse to admit it when evidence is presented that they are being used for nefarious reasons. The Accomplished Sociopath realizes this, and finds ways to appeal to the vanity of the unwitting pawn.
Are there clues, that may indicate you are dealing with an Accomplished Sociopath? Yes, but be sure before confronting one. They have spent years creating a facade of humanity that has hidden their true nature from Family, Friends and Acquaintances. If possible, accumulate allies who are willing to stand with you, for confronting the Accomplished Sociopath means attacking their support structure of individuals who are either Unable or Unwilling to face reality.
