Ever wondered if there was a link between those that are Sociopaths and Psychic vampires? Consider this...
I had know this person for more than 5 years, considering him a friend and business associate. During that time i had noted that he was extremely reserved, never
talking about himself in any way, but always open to intellectual discussion.
Then came the moment that i was promoted to my present position, that of Head Chef at a 3 Star Restaurant in England. From that point on, the 'games' began.
During our conversations, this person would always ask questions that provoked the most emotional responses, almost blatantly trying to touch a 'raw nerve'. This wasn't stirring the shit or 'winding someone up' this was questions designed to poke and prod uncomfortable memories.
This went on for a number of weeks before i realised that my associate was angry at my success. This is a person who never showed or could feel empathy
for another individual, a classic Sociopathic trait. He couldn't feel for himself, so he created strong emotion in me
and 'fed' off of it.
I dropped the relationship with this person, going about my regular new life. 9 months later i discovered through a friend (clinical psychologist) that the person in question had been detained under the mental health act after a public fracas and had been daignosed as a classic Sociopath after clinical examination...
