Meaning it is arrogant, not that a psychopath acts like a narcist.

But it can be very hard to tell whether you're talking to a genuinely good person, or a psychopath who's playing you.
Now you are claiming a psychopath cannot be a good person; while in the first paragraph of the post you agree that one would have good reason to.
