Sean Avery: Psychopath?

From the wikipedia article for Psychopathy, here is Dr. Robert D. Hare’s Psychopathy Checklist-Revised:

Factor1: "Aggressive narcissism"

* Glibness/superficial charm
* Grandiose sense of self-worth
* Pathological lying
* Cunning/manipulative
* Lack of remorse or guilt
* Shallow affect
* Callous/lack of empathy
* Failure to accept responsibility for own actions
* Promiscuous sexual behavior

Factor2: "Socially deviant lifestyle"

* Need for stimulation/proneness to boredom
* Parasitic lifestyle
* Poor behavioral control
* Lack of realistic, long-term goals
* Impulsivity
* Irresponsibility
* Juvenile delinquency
* Early behavior problems
* Many short-term marital relationships
* Revocation of conditional release

Don't the Factor1 traits (according to the article, "the so-called core personality traits of psychopathy") pretty much perfectly match the public perception of Sean Avery?
