American Sign Language: "sociopath"


A fellow named John (ha) writes in to ask:
 

<< I wonder if there's a sign for 'sociopath' or
a similar concept -- someone compulsively deceptive, destructive, and utterly without remorse or empathy, but often with a (temporarily) charming demeanor. Would love to learn about that on the site if you decide to use this request! If so, if you would, please don't use my email, just call me John.
Thanks for the materials. Really remarkable.
Best,
John >>


Dear John,
There is no widely established sign for "sociopath."
Related signs include:

PERSON
SELF-[him-her-it]
ACT-[drama]
SEEM
SWEET

FRIENDLY-[cheerful]
NICE
BUTTER-up-person
NOT
TRUE

FALSE-[fake]
HYPOCRITE
SICK-YOU-[That-is-sick!]
MIND-WARPED
RUIN-[spoil-harm]
GUILT

SORRY
NONE

SHORT-[soon-temporary]

CONTINUE
SOCIAL
All of which are really very interesting signs. Many of which I'm sure are not yet posted.
I'll post a holding page for "sociopath" and maybe during the holiday break I can find some time to post those individual signs and expand on how the above signs can be used to describe a sociopath.
Cordially,
Dr. Bill
