Is it true that sociopathic people are fueled by sex and power

Resolved Question:

Is it true that sociopathic people are fueled by sex and power and may not be concerned of the gender or are they possibly just bi-sexual?

Carol Kryder LMFT :

Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer. Your question is not closed until you are satisfied. I am happy to assist you with your question.

Carol Kryder LMFT :

That is a really interesting question. Sociopaths are characterized as having no conscience and no empathy for others. They can be fueled by sex and power, but not necessarily.

Carol Kryder LMFT :

They are usually involved in criminal behavior, and I suppose a case could be made that they are fueled by power, since it is all about them staying in control, but the basis of their personality is that they really don't care about anyone else. For them the ends always justify the means, legal or not.

Carol Kryder LMFT :

I don't think sociopaths are more likely to be bi-sexual than anyone else.
