Though I cannot say with certainty that you are a psychopath, you described yourself as someone who possess some of the characteristics consistent with psychopathy.
Yes, you should seek professional help. The problems you have described are unhealthy and can lead to major detrimental effects on your life. For instance, you have yet to be in serious, legal trouble but it might only be a matter of time before that changes. You might be able to “smooth talk” your teachers but don’t expect this to work with law enforcement. Jails are filled with people who foolishly thought they could outsmart the authorities.
Your drug use is also a major concern. It’s illegal and dangerous. Illicit drug use is particularly dangerous because street drugs can be laced with any number of poisons. You might think that it is an exaggeration but there is strong evidence that illicit drugs can cause permanent brain damage, even after just one use.
Drugs can also alter your brain chemistry. New research suggests that adolescent brains are not fully developed until the age of 25. The use of drugs and alcohol on the developing brain can have long-term, negative implications.
By ignoring your problems, you are taking a big risk with your life. It would also be a sign of irresponsibility.
If you know that a problem exists, get help for it. If you seek help now, genuinely try to change your behavior and learned the proper respect for others, you could positively alter the course of your life. Please take care.
