How are psychopaths and sociopaths genetically similar/ different?
For this project,
As I’ve mentioned in the last post, people tend to use the terms sociopath and psychopath interchangeably, but they do have different meanings. A sociopath isn’t an official term to describe a person who has an antisocial personality disorder (ASPD). Psychopathy describes a set of personality traits. However, ASPD and psychopathy can overlap. Sociopathy is just a label to define a set of traits that are more common in one group of people, and people who experience psychopathic traits, such as ruthlessness, charisma and impulsivity, tend to get through life just fine. Even full-blown psychopaths can be very successful, they just won’t ever be the same as everyone else. For my posts, I would be talking about Psychopath traits, characteristics and genetic influences, Sociopath traits, characteristics and genetic influences and how similar/ different they are, and how it affects others in our community.

- Sociopath traits, characteristic and genetic influence
Clearly defining what a psychopath and a sociopath as well as how big of a role genetics plays a part in it can help us dive deeper into the mind of a psychopath and sociopaths, taking us to see the similar/ different they are. As well as look at if they were born a psychopath/ sociopath or were they made to be one.
3. Similarity and differences, and it’s impact on the community
Answering the my inquiry question, how similar/ different the two are. as well as how it positively/ negatively impact others in our community and the rest of the world.
