I can give a little anecdotal information about psychopaths on the the same points.
On your first point: I’ve done all those things, and more. I don’t think I’m a bad person though. I’m actually a very good, friendly person. I think as long as a psychopath stays non-violent I wouldn’t be too worried about them. They’re just living their life.
On the second: I want people to like me. Of course I do. I wouldn’t be emotionally hurt if they didn’t, but people liking me is useful. I have dropped people out of my life on a whim, even though we’ve been “friends” for decades, without a care. They deserved it though. Some people you’re better off not knowing.
