Kanika Batra is a diagnosed "sociopath" who teaches women to harness their "dark feminine" powers. Kanika Batra/ Waterpup.og
Kanika Batra has been diagnosed with antisocial personality disorder, sometimes called sociopathy.
She had nearly 500,000 TikTok followers before saying her account was hacked and deleted.
Batra sees herself as the antidote to misogyny, showing women how to use "dark female" power.
"Sociopathic ways to win over your crush," Kanika Batra said at the start of a recent TikTok video. “First things first, infiltrate his circle of friends. Men love validation from their brothers.”
Batra, a 26-year-old Australian author, model and content creator currently residing in Barcelona, ​​has grown her TikTok account to nearly half a million followers in just a month.
But then she said she was hacked and it was deleted. "The person actually admitted it too," she said in a video this week. "Apparently it's a crime to stand up for women." She has since opened a new account where she has 3,000 followers and counting.
Batra represented Australia in the Miss Aura 2021 beauty pageant and regularly posts TikTok videos with the text overlay "diagnosed sociopath". She talks about her behavior and motivation as someone diagnosed with antisocial personality disorder and how women can use some of their traits to their advantage in a patriarchal world.
People with antisocial personality disorder are described in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) as having “disregard for and violation of the rights of others”, lack of remorse or empathy, and having an exploitative and manipulative nature.
In one video, Batra says her dating advice is to stay emotionally distant by seeing multiple people at once because "when you have a lot of opportunities, you have all the power."
"Don't accept a walk with a coffee as a date," she says. "The more money he spends on you, the less he spends on other women."
Batra told Insider that her style of counseling is known for using "dark feminine" energy, which includes being dominant and assertive while leaning into femininity.
"Women love it, they absolutely love it," Batra said. "You wouldn't understand how many messages I'm getting right now saying, 'Can you get even with my ex for me?', 'Can you teach me how to do this?', 'Can you teach me how detaches from people?'"

After witnessing a boom in toxic masculinity online, Batra decided to be the antidote. She was referring to characters like Andrew Tate, a podcaster and businessman who amassed a huge following of young men with misogynistic ideas about the role of women in society before he was removed from the platform (Elon Musk retweeted him recently welcomed), and the "Fresh & Fit" podcast by Walter Weekes and Myron Gaines, which has a similar effect.
"They're basically saying abuse women, choosing women who are young enough to be brainwashed, and that's being propagated among teenagers that are going to make these girls' lives hell," Batra said. "Because I don't have those feelings of fear or empathy with these men, I don't really see them as people and I find them really easy to pursue."
"Far, far, far more men than women are being diagnosed with ASPD," said Dr. Ramani Durvasula to Insider.
A clinical psychologist specializing in the "dark tetrad" of personality traits -- narcissism, psychopathy, Machiavellianism, and sadism -- Durvasula said more diagnoses in men could be due to many factors, including hormonal differences and the possibility that they women manifest very differently in ways researchers don't yet fully understand.
Batra's diagnosis of ASPD answered many questions
Batra was born in New Zealand and moved to Sydney when he was 5 years old. She said she always knew she was different as she had poor impulse control from a young age. On her TikTok, she has shared stories of pushing a fellow child down the stairs or getting her classmates in trouble.
When Batra was diagnosed with ASPD, she said everything she had experienced up to that point began to make sense.
Durvasula said that one of the most important diagnostic quotas people with ASPD must meet is to include behavioral issues before age 16. and live from moment to moment with no regard for what the future holds.
Most of the time, Batra said, she now suppresses all impulses that harm other people "because I'm an adult and I don't want to go to jail." She's also only 5'1".

At the age of 21, Batra said she was living with severe depression so debilitating that she attempted suicide. She said she sought the help of a psychiatrist with the intention of being prescribed Valium.
But Batra said the psychiatrist, who had worked in prisons, saw through "a lot of manipulation and lies" Batra told him and after several talks diagnosed her with ASPD. Insiders have seen Batra's psychiatrist's documentation as confirmation of her diagnosis.
Batra said she has always experienced a disconnect between herself and others.
She understands how people feel, but she doesn't have the ability to embrace their emotions the way empathic people do. She said she also had no guilt or remorse or concern about her choices.
“If I've done something, I've done something; I don't think about it," she said. "I think people are kind of jealous of that because I can go into any situation and not think about the future and not think about possible reactions to my actions."
Job interviews, for example, are "a piece of cake," said Batra. "I love her."
There are many misconceptions about what ASPD actually is
The way Batra speaks to the camera in her TikTok videos is very dry and direct. She said this is her without a mask - without conforming to social norms or thinking about how she will be perceived.

But most of the time, with her partner and friends, and in our interview, Batra is personable and outgoing. She said she's always been "very confident and very bubbly," and this may confuse some people when they find out about her diagnosis.
"Antisocial doesn't mean I'm antisocial," she said. "It means I disobey social norms, not that I'm a mean person."
She has also been in a relationship with her husband Sam Matheson for three and a half years. He is much more private than her and has little social media presence. Batra knew Matheson was special, she said, because when she removed her mask in front of him - something that's incredibly difficult to do - "he didn't run."
"He saw the worst and didn't leave," she said. "He doesn't make me feel like I'm being judged for anything."
Batra said she struggles with compulsive spending and is technically bankrupt in Australia because she used a credit card to take "several first-class flights" and owed thousands of dollars.
Another little-known symptom of ASPD is the depressive episodes, Batra said, which can be "really overwhelming." People often assume that being "a sociopath" means being untouchable, but that's not the case.
Batra said she could get hurt, it's just that her feelings are more superficial than other people's.
"I'm not Patrick Bateman," she said, referring to the protagonist of "American Psycho."
Durvasula said the bouts of depression could lead people with ASPD to seek therapy and find out about their diagnosis.
"It almost feels like depression comes in the face of ego hurt rather than what we traditionally think of as depression," Durvasula said. "But ultimately the forward-looking characteristics of it look like depression, and a person with antisocial personality disorder may well have co-occurring depression."
Batra loves the validation TikTok brings her
Batra said she loves the confidence boost her videos give her because her goal was to empower and enlighten women. She is particularly pleased when women tell her they have used her advice to get ahead at work or taught a lesson to someone who abused her.
"I love hearing that my videos have helped regulate women emotionally because women feel this needless need to feel guilt and empathy for people who don't have one for them," she said.
“Men punish us too for focusing on ourselves. They call us narcissists, they call us sluts, they call us fame whores, attention whores, gold diggers, clout chasers, the list goes on.”

Batra also gives women insight into potentially abusive relationships they may have had with men who had ASPD or other Dark Tetrad personality traits. Durvasula, who works with survivors, said people who have been in these relationships are "really, really struggling" and may find it comforting to see Batra's perspective.
"It might take away some of the self-blame," Durvasula said. "It's not about you anymore - it's who they are, who they always will be.
"I think she's able to offer something that I could never offer."
Batra said the countless comments on her videos make her feel understood in a world where she has often felt alone.
"I really appreciate knowing that other people are going through the same thing as I am," she said. "And that they found it helpful to use my content to get better at how they process and react to the world."
