      Question out of curiosity...

      How do psychopaths and sociopaths react when they first get chronic Tinnitus? Considering their lack of emotions - do they eat, live and sleep like they did before, and not give a shit? How does it work?

      Sociopaths don't necessarily feel a lack of emotion, just a lack of empathy for other people.

      Ted Bundy wept and prayed the whole night before he was executed.

      Interesting... I would think they would still find it distressing.

      I would think it depends on the type of tinnitus, you left that part out for some reason. Its like asking if a certain personality type would react to arthritis, but are we talking a little stiffness in the joints, or someone that is cripled and in wheelchair? You see, the condition itself matters, not just the personality type.

      Don't think psychopaths can't suffer with their's condition. This thought is wrong.
      I think that
      wish 1) of such person is not to be mentally abnormal and
      wish 2) not to have tinnitus
      (order can be changed, depends on how severe tinnitus we are talking about)

      Studies have shown that psychopaths and sociopaths when they first get tinnitus go hang gliding. After working up an appetite after that they generally go out for Sushi and talk baseball.
      YMMV

      I think every normal human being shares many of the same feelings when they first get tinnitus regardless of their tinnitus volume. and most of us didn't even know there were different types of tinnitus when we first got it. thats why i didnt feel it was necessary to write the severity of tinnitus, because at the acute phase, it doesnt really matter if the tinnitus is mild or loud. that part only plays a role when it comes to coping with tinnitus

      No. Loudness matters at any phase of tinnitus in terms of ability to cope. Those with very mild and intermittent tinnitus statistically cope easier because they have closer to normal hearing. Yes, those with moderate tinnitus can acclimate with time as discussed on this forum.

      They get extremely angry because sociopaths don't care about other people and they put all that energy into caring about themselves so when they get T they get 8x as angry.

      sociopaths and psychopaths have all the emotions in the world when it comes to anything related to themselves.
      its empathy for others which they dotn have

      and...it should be noted, in the context of tinnitus, studies have shown that both groups when they get tinnitus tend to want to hang out at the bowling alley together and smoke cigarettes.
      How many join me in believing what a great question the OP asked?...lol.

      Will add, I believe much more will be learned when the audience of attendees at tinnitus groups is asked for a show of hands as to how many present are sociopaths and psychopaths...and how many of them were abandoned by their parents which created their psychopathy.

      well it's reported that Hitler was getting Cocaine from his doctor to treat his "ear problems" after the blast inside the bunker .. the failed asassination attempt as pictured in the movie with Tom Cruise.

      My guess is that he spent the last months/year of his life with a noise induced loud tinntius

      Cocaine would probably make it worse!
