A psychopat will be nice and kind if it is in his or her interest.
Well, I'm glad we at least agree on that much.

A narcist and a psychopat are two different things.
It was described as the highest form of narcissism (quite rightly, when you think about it) by an accepted high-order expert on the subject, named [take a breather whilst I search for the name] Otto Kernberg (Damn! I was hoping it was Igor something!)

Then psychopats don't exist
Oh, they do.

But it can be very hard to tell whether you're talking to a genuinely good person, or a psychopath who's playing you.

I remember, going back a few years, there was a trial of a group-therapy thing, aimed at helping psychopaths to stop being psychopathic criminals, by, among other things, making them take part in role-play exercises where they (in theory) would learn to be a tad more selfless.

It was abandoned after two or three years (or maybe not even that long), because all it achieved was to teach them how to better pretend to be selfless.

Gun.  Bang.  Ow, my foot!
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
