Or someone that keeps telling people on Bluesnews to commit suicide yet doesn't acknowledge he has a problem.

Road rage isn't normal. Or healthy. So it fits. Leaving a cart and checking your phone is passive, so it doesn't fit. They're not the same, though I expect you've told someone doing the latter that they should commit suicide.

"psychopathy — a personality trait defined by egocentricity, immoral behavior, and a lack of empathy"

Hmm, sounds like just about every corporate CEO and boardmember on the planet:

* egocentricity - I deserve to be rich
* immoral behavior - lets rape the planet for profit
* lack of empathy - people starving or dying from pollution, don't worry trickle down will eventually save them

That's probably true but how in the world can they measure that?

Read the URL, it's pretty interesting. The researchers found some neutral and derogatory comments online (on Polish Facebook, apparently) that matched their criteria, then tested as many of those posters as agreed to be part of the study. The sample size is pretty small, 94 total, but it's enough to give a hint of psychological predictors for people online. Original study is here in English . Hypothesis and conclusions are based off of questionnaire responses by the 94 people, so the researchers made sure to be clear that they aren't saying all of humanity, or even all online posters, etc. just that the psychopathy trait is higher in this test group among the 'hateful' posters vs the neutral posters.

Studies like this lead to bigger studies.

It comes down to the level of harm felt as adequate punishment for perceived enemies.
To the perpetrator, self-justification (no matter how illogic) may be needed, or not at all (downright evil).
You incur in sociopathic/psychopathic behavior depending on how incommensurate the harmful or retaliative action is.

Example: Intemperate verbal implying physical assault on neighbours for slight mishandling of animals, etc.

T****.
Sociopath, psychopath, with a monstrously raging over-compensating inferiority complex.

So clear, except to people unable to evaluate a person's character, and so, wide open to swindlers and fabrications.
