Antisocial Personality Disorder

A continuous pattern of disregard for, and violation of, the rights of others that begins in childhood or early adolescence and continues into adulthood. To the sufferer of this disorder, other people are regarded as weak and deserving of being taken advantage of; they are seen as objects to be manipulated. A common misconception is that those with antisocial personality disorder have poor social skills, but this is incorrect - they simply have no respect or desire to abide by social norms.
