One of the most common arguments I hear against someone – real or fictional – being a sociopath is that the person loves someone else. While I understand the presumption that a psychopath/sociopath cannot love, it simply is not true. They love, just not in the same manner or presentation as the average/neurotypical person. Theirs is a selfish, incredibly intense, love that can come and go seemingly at random…but it is love. A love that a fair number of fictional “psychos” feel, including Hannibal “The Cannibal” Lecter.
