#4 Is There Any Guilt or Shame?
You must have realized by this point that psychopaths have few intense feelings, especially unpleasant ones. Because both narcissists and psychopaths lack empathy, they both experience feelings on a surface level. In spite of this, a narcissist has a little more empathy than a psychopath.
In reality, narcissists are coping with intense shame and guilt on the inside that they are unable to handle. Although it may appear that they are not sorry for what they did to you, this is only because they don’t let themselves feel the remorse or they transfer it to others.
On the other hand, a psychopath only experiences pleasure when they do something wicked.
