Society has conspired with Hollywood to put two seemingly-sexy psychology terms into our collective consciousness - psychopath and sociopath. Nonetheless, there are some general similarities as well as differences between these two personality types. Both sociopaths and psychopaths have a pervasive pattern of disregard for the safety and rights of others. Deceit and manipulation.
When genetic predisposition is the underlying cause, the term psychopathy is used. When the cause is brain injury or upbringing, sociopathy is the term used. Sociopath is the term used when the antisocial behavior is a result of a brain injury or negative sociological factors like parental neglect, delinquent peers, belief system and upbringing. In recent years, the term psychopath has acquired a specific meaning and the condition is now more widely understood. Psychopaths are incapable of empathy and forming loving relationships. However, they can pretend to be charming and loving, so those around them can't always detect their lack of empathy.

Relationships with psychopaths take an unusually long time to recover from. I certainly do! The important thing here is to stop blaming yourself. Stop wishing it would go faster.

It’s a loaded word that immediately brings to mind many associated images. Serial killers and violent criminals tend to be the heart of people’s assumptions. Another issue we face is having to learn the value that neurotypicals place on certain behaviors that to us seem worthless. We must develop cognitive empathy, and use this to guide our interactions. During this process, how we are guided makes a great deal of difference in how we will turn out, but it will never change the course that the development of our brains will take. Your call will be routed to the crisis center near you. If your issue is an emergency, call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room.
How to Identify a Psychopath. Psychopaths are infamous for their refusal to acknowledge responsibility for the decisions they make, or the outcomes of their decisions
So many people use psychopath, sociopath, and ASPD interchangeably, and they never should. I cringe every time I see or hear the word sociopath used to describe what is clearly a psychopath. Robert Hare uses sociopath to describe people who perform highly antisocial behaviors within only certain contexts. It’s incredibly important that people realize that just how dangerous, abnormal, antisocial, manipulative, deceptive, charming, and ruthless psychopaths are.
