The Grand Master of Sociopaths
A sociopath is a person with an antisocial personality, usually a criminal who lacks a sense of moral responsibility. In the comic book, television show and movies; the character the Joker is the king of Sociopaths. He again and again commits crimes with no hint of remorse. The Joker has much charm. He charmed his way into convincing a psychiatric counselor into letting him out of his holding cell. He convinced her that they were meant for each other. This same psychiatric counselor would end up being his infamous partner in crime Harley Quin, who continually falls for the Joker’s charm.
The Joker is very manipulative as well. He believes that no one else in the world matters except himself and Batman. So he uses Harley Quin as a toy for his own pleasure. He also acts up his insanity so he can stay in Arkahm Asylum which is a psychiatric hospital instead of being stuck in an uncomfortable jail cell. He has a Grandiose sense of self. The Joker feels that everything is entitled to him. He believes it is his right to have. He thinks that Gotham City is his city. He also believes that it is his right to kill Batman and no one else’s.
The Joker has no lack of remorse or guilt. He has killed countless people and has tried to even kill Harley Quin on several occasions. He is infamously known to use his own Henchman as target practice. The Joker has an incapacity to love. He has an intense need for The Joker is the definition of a sociopath. He is the grand master of them all. All I can say is thank goodness he is a fictional character and not running rampant through our streets.
