Ah, I think if you question yourself and your motives it's unlikely. Sociopaths unlike psychopaths know the rules, which is what makes them difficult to spot, they know when and how to play along, but feel some divine right allows their personal exemption when it suits.
Now, there are plenty of occasions where rule breaking is a good thing. What I'm speaking of is the right to lie, to victimize, to commit crime, using others to ones own end I suppose.
I'll bring out the old chestnut:
"All snakes are reptiles but not all reptiles are snakes"
After all 'twould be a shame to start thinking every charismatic person you meet is sociopathic. Fortunate that it's not the defining factor, it's a reminder to keep one's mind open. I've not seen too many of your posts but from the little I have seen, it looks like that's nothing you have a problem with.
