In brief: Yes, with examples

However, what and how they respond emotionally is radically different than those without these personality disorders would respond.
For instance, when caught committing a crime, the sociopath feels anger at being caught and plots to not get caught next time, and feels no remorse. When a mistake is pointed out to a narcissist, the response is often rage, and cutting out that person from their life.
