Hello, and welcome to my project plan for my new inquiry project. You have probably read the title which means you know that I will be doing my new project about the psychology of a psychopath/sociopath. The reason was I have said “psychopath/sociopath” is because not only do I want to look at what it means to be either one, but I to look at the similarities and differences between them. This project interests me because I find the psychology fascinating, and I would love to know more about the different ways that the human mind can function, this included how the mind of a psychopath and sociopath works.
Here is what I will be researching in through my three posts:
What is the definition of a psychopath, and what is the definition of a sociopath. The reason for me wanting to learn is because I have heard both terms used and I always thought that they were just synonyms of each other, but I’m pretty sure that they are actually two separate things, although they are similar. To go along with this I am going to talk about how these people can be dangerous to the people around them.
In this post I will talk about what it means to be a psychopath and what it means to be a sociopath. This will be a more in depth look into the psychology of the 2 types of people, I will research things about how they act in different situations, and how they manipulate others to reach their “goal”, whatever that goal may be.
In this post I will talk about about how to identify a psychopath or sociopath and how to avoid them. I will also compare their traits and potential come to a conclusion about which one could potentially be more dangerous.

This could help other indeviduals because they can learn how to identify these kinds of people so that they can stay away. These kinds of people can be very dangerous, so knowing how to spot one could help a lot.
