Was Tony Soprano the GOAT Sociopath?
 

 
Just finished a marathon rewatch of this whole series. Dude has to be the GOAT piece of sh*t in a tv series. You hated to see him go but at the same time you would root for him to win. Can't be how dirty he

Everyone around him was used to his advantage.

because of his soft spot for animals and children and his temper Tony is more psychopath than sociopath…but really he could be an extreme case of borderline personality disorder because of his depression…..

don’t ask how i know this……

You got it mixed it's the psychopaths who usually harm animals, are emotionless and have no love for anything... while sociopaths are more complex in nature and usually tend to have more emotions ie. anger issues

If Tony was a psychopath he would be fu*k those kids and those animals... but when you watch the show you see he has a small caring side... which a psychopath would have to fake completely to get by.

Killing Ralphie, chopping him up and burying him and then calling his house phone looking for him was some next level sh*t. Even sent n*ggas out to look for him

This.

If he was a psychopath, he'd harm animals. Sociopaths commit crimes and harm other beings when there's a benefit for them, if there's no tangible benefit, then there's no reason to take a calculated risk.

Tony having a soft spot for animals is actually indicative of a sociopath trait in that it's something "good" that requires minimal effort, but allows him to feel like he's a great person and above people that doesn't care about the animals as much as him. It also doesn't get in the way of the bad things he does that benefits him.

Correct me if I'm wrong but to my understanding psychopaths lack the ability to have empathy/real emotions. As terrible of a person Tony was, he clearly loved his children and his wife to an extent. And maybe Artie.

Tony's parents did a number on him. The worse thing that happened to Tomy was him becoming boss. But every single character was a piece of sh*t. Even Artie he's always fu*king lusting over every pretty bi*ch he sees.

The Sopranos is rooted in nihilism, so every character is a piece of sh*t by design.

That comes along with the business he was in tbh. Remember he had to lie about Adrianna's whereabouts to Carmella after he k*lled Adrianna.

just saw Many Saints of EWR. it was actually good. if you're in to the Sopranos story.

Christopher was my favorite character and I see that he was doomed from birth. He had no chance. And Tony was a monster for what he did to him

any of ya'll read the sopranos autopsy website?

dude breaks down every episode extremely thoroughly, it's fascinating. he just dropped his piece on the final episode a few days ago and his take is crazy. i can't even explain his take succinctly you just gotta read it.

I agree with OP.

Chris was his nephew/little brother and look what he did. He had no sympathy for him either. He could see the life was taking a toll and causing him to do the heroin.

He had no issue k*lling Chris’ wife. Then lying in Carm’s face.

Dr Milfi’s actions at the end make sense. Tony had no redemption.

sociopaths are the ones that hurt animals……

psychopaths can fake empathy for animals and children………

Many Saints was trash to me. Was cool to see the fam Christopher came from, but that's about its only redeeming quality.
