I am a diagnosed psychopath… those were my ‘morbid’ interests as a child


A woman who claims to be a diagnosed psychopath has shared a «morbid» interest she had as a child, revealing a window into the minds of people with a personality disorder.

The TikToker, who goes by the name victhepath, revealed that her special interests include the Holocaust, ancient Mayan human sacrifice and the original Grimm fairy tales – in addition to three other gory tales.

Researchers have found that because psychopaths have reduced empathy and sensation-seeking behavior, they tend to have an increased interest in violent and disturbing content.

Research has suggested that psychopaths may be drawn to violent or gory stories due to a desire for stimulation or a need to assert dominance, which may explain the special interests of TikTokers.

The TikToker, who goes by the name victhepath, revealed that her special interests include the Holocaust, ancient Mayan human sacrifice and the original Grimm fairy tales – in addition to three other gory tales.

In general, people who are described as psychopaths exhibit traits such as antisocial behavior, untruthfulness, irresponsibility, and a lack of remorse or empathy.

Studies have found that psychopaths often show reduced emotional responses to gruesome or disturbing stimuli, allowing them to engage with such content without experiencing the discomfort or revulsion that most people would feel.

Only about 1.2 percent of U.S. adults believed they had clinically significant levels of psychopathic traits, but this increases in prisons, where 15 to 25 percent of inmates exhibit these traits.

The disorder is diagnosed using the 20-item Hare Psychopathy Checklist, which includes traits such as lack of empathy, pathological state, and impulsivity.

However, some doctors avoid the term «psychopath» and sometimes refer to it as antisocial personality disorder (ASPD).

«I was really into the Holocaust, specifically when I was a kid, not really World War II like a while,» the TikToker said in the video.

«When I was in the third grade, we had a book fair at school and I remember seeing this little black book called Holocaust and I was really interested in it.»

She went on to explain that she spent an hour at the event reading a book under the table.

«After that I became so fascinated by the subject,» she continued.

“When I was in eighth grade, I went on a field trip to DC and decided to go to the Holocaust Museum above the Smithsonian.

Her other special interest was Grimm fairy tales and origin stories, which are «extremely morbid».

One of the stories is ‘The Robber Groom’, which is about bandits who drag a girl into their underground hideout, force her to drink wine until her heart bursts, rip off her clothes and then dismember her body.

The original Cinderella, another written by the Brothers Grimm, says that the stepsisters tried to cut off their toe or heel to fit the glass slipper.

“The last special interest is the Aztec and Mayan empires,” she said.  ¿It shouldn't come as a shock to you that I'm really intrigued by the whole human sacrifice thing

Many of these stories have since been reworked to be suitable for children, but the TikToker said he has a huge book of all the original works.

She went on to explain her other interests as a child were the Romanov family, who were all murdered by Bolshevik soldiers in 1917, Greek mythology and Labrythin.

«The Hunger Games is kind of based on Labrythin, the idea of ​​putting kids in an arena until they’re gone,» the TikToker said.

“The last special interest is the Aztec and Mayan empires.

“It shouldn’t come as a shock to you that I’m really intrigued by the whole human sacrifice thing.

The TikToker’s video comes after experts in New Mexico analyzed tapes of women being interviewed by police for signs that the woman may be a psychopath.

They found that the biggest psychopaths kept their heads very still, just like men.

Standing still may be a tactic psychopaths use to hide potential clues about their personality or intentions from body language.

The study — which claims to be the first to link female psychopaths and nonverbal communication — was led by researchers at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque’s Department of Psychology.

«Nonverbal behavior (ie, head dynamics) represents an important but understudied form of communication that may improve our ability to detect certain forms of psychopathology, including psychopathy,» they say.

«We believe our results help to identify a unique pattern of head dynamics characteristic of women with high psychopathy scores, namely showing more stationary head postures during clinical interview administration.»

For the study, researchers used an image processing and machine learning tool to automatically extract head movement from recorded interviews with 213 incarcerated women in the US.

Because psychopathy is «highly predictive of future recidivism» in both women and men, the findings may be important to prison guards.

When interviewed by the police, female inmates who keep their heads more level might be more likely to reoffend — though further study would be required to prove this.

A limitation of the study is that the participants were exclusively inmates, so the team does not know how much «the prison environment may have influenced the participants’ behavior.»
