So, if you want to be able to spot a female psychopath, you need to know how female psychopaths may differ from males. Here are two key differences:
1. Differences in Narcissism
All psychopaths are high in narcissism. This means they see themselves as superior to those around them. But how this narcissism is expressed differs for men and women.
…[Women are] more covert about their narcissistic tendencies. They smile and praise you face-to-face, but think they are better than you behind your back.
2. Differences in Aggression
Male psychopaths tend to display their aggression behaviorally. They engage in physical assault, abuse animals, or commit violent crimes.
Female psychopaths are better equipped to fly under the radar. This is because they tend to display their aggression relationally. They [spread] gossip about you at work. They gaslight you to the point that you doubt your own sanity. They leech off you and manipulate you into doing their bidding.
In the end, the difference comes down to this: Male psychopaths throw punches; female psychopaths throw shade.
