    "Psychopathy (/saɪˈkɒpəθi/), also known as—though sometimes distinguished from—sociopathy (/ˈsoʊsiəˌpæθi/), is traditionally defined as a personality disorder characterized by enduring antisocial behavior, diminished empathy and remorse, and disinhibited or bold behavior.​



    What say you, Sherdog psychologists?

    I would say he is more of a sociopath than an actual psychopath

    Not sure what to call it but he is definitely one banana short of a bunch.

    He's not a psychopath, but I do think he is a sociopath.

    Because it's more prestige and the only way to be considered "the baddest man on the planet". And since you say he can whoop anyone, why not?

    he's just a young guy with lots of success and money. anyone on this site would be doing what he's doing if they were in the same of position of fame and luxury that Jon is in. Trust me he will mature and calm way down once he hits 30.

    He probably ticks a lot of the boxes for some kind of psychopath, sociopath, narcissistic personality. I remember when he did that interview with Helwani and was asked about his thoughts immediately after the car accident. He talked about himself going to jail mostly. Understandable, I suppose. But not one time did he say, "I hoped that person was okay." I don't remember him ever expressing empathy for her situation the entire interview. She was just a problem in his life. I was like, jesus, go get some fans Jon. Say something about the victim.
