Sociopathy is a colloquial term that refers to behaviors associated with antisocial personality disorder. Sociopathy best resembles Antisocial Personality Disorder in the DSM-V. The term Sociopath is often used in place of psychopath, but they are actually two different things. A sociopath is someone who is antisocial in nature and has tremendous difficulty relating to other human beings. They don’t understand emotions and can often have narcissistic traits. Sociopaths have behaviors that have been influenced by their environments. Sociopaths are often influenced by a traumatic violent childhood. Psychopaths, on the other hand, have behaviors that are determined by their brain function and their disorder can be traced to genetics. The articles here will examine how to know if you’ve interacted with a sociopath and what to do if that happens. Sociopathy is complex in nature and often misunderstood. These articles are designed to give you insight into the mind of this fascinating but disturbed personality type.
