Re: What's ASPD like?

I know all about Avoidant PD, as I fit the criteria pretty well for that one myself.

So the greater question for me on the interplay between Narcissistic PD and Antisocial PD. I've read somewhere that NPDs can be bullies at school, can manipulate or lie to people without feeling remorse, etc etc. There is also a lack of empathy for NPD.

I guess one of the key differences is that Antisocial PDs aren't so much worried about their reputation and therefore are much more likely to engage in disruptive behavior.
