What is Antisocial Personality Disorder?
Antisocial personality disorder is a mental health condition where a person shows little or no empathy for others and ignores their rights or feelings. They can lie, cheat, exploit and manipulate people and show very little or no remorse or guilt for their actions.
Often insensitive with both their words and actions, they can be antagonistic and aggressive which can lead to them being destructive and physically violent. They might act rashly not caring if they put themselves or others in danger. However they can also be fun to be around when they chose to be, even deceptively charismatic, charming and witty as they are cunning and deceitful by nature.
As with many mental health conditions and personality disorders, there is no known cause for antisocial personality disorder, although it’s believed that several things can be contributory factors
