A sociopath has their head in the clouds. A psychopath lives in them.
what Onthenod said was similar to what i've read in the internet.<br />
but neither of them were included in DSM-IV and the closest thing in there was Antisocial Personality Disorder IIRC.<br />
also keep in mind that people are still arguing that origin of sociopathy's and the nature vs nuture argument.<br />
to make it easy to remember <br />
Psychopathy - Nature (born with, internal)<br />
Sociopathy - Nurture (environmental factors, external)<br />
I'd say Psychopathy is a much more serious disorder and that its probably clinical<br />
while Sociopathy might be both
Psychopath is lost on his psycho path, sociopath on his social path.
Duh, it's two different paths!
