A sociopath is a term to describe someone with a severe form of antisocial personality disorder (ASPD). Sociopaths don’t have a fully functional conscience and tend to be exploitative, manipulative, or even abusive towards other people.
While the terms sociopath and psychopath are sometimes used interchangeably, many psychologists argue that there are differences between the two. Similar to sociopathic people, psychopaths have antisocial personality disorder, but it’s believed to have a more severe form than sociopaths.
