Female Psychopaths - Need for Adulation

"The female  psychopath's interest in others is not based on a desire for greater intimacy, but rather is motivated by a need to be the center of attention."
"[Her] pronounced needs for 'relatedness' and adulation from others form the cornerstone of her Histrionic character."
Carl Gacono and F. Barton Evans, The Handbook of Forensic Rorschach Assessment, (New York 2008) 373, 375.

FEMALE PSYCHOPATHS - Bored and Unable to Feel Loneliness !

“Psychopathic individuals know well within themselves ... feelings of sadistic pleasure, contemptuous delight, sudden dysphoria, and, deep within, a profound disquieting boredom.”

"The psychopathic individual ... is most vulnerable to chronic feelings of boredom because he or she aggressively empties the world of meaningful relations to ward off feelings of envy and greed."
"Emotional relatedness is ... [absent in the psychopath] , and consequently psychopathic individuals are unable to experience loneliness, the longing for and awareness of the possibility of emotional closeness."

Meloy, J. Reid. The Psychopathic Mind. 110, 111, 114.
