The Phantom: Psychopath या sociopath?

Both are an antisocial personality disorder. BUT do they have some essential difference?

Someone's (I assume, uneducated) opinion on a discussion forum:
"Psychopaths usually don't kill! They lie and manipualte and have no emotions या feelings at all. They just pretend to be normal because they look at how normal people react on situations. Only the ones close to them see that something is wrong as they can be very horrible. Psychopaths are hardly ever (serial)killers, people tend to use this term incorrectly."

Another (I assume, uneducated) opinion:
"Some people use the term 'psychopath' when they mean 'sociopath'. Psychopaths literally cannot feel the same emotions we do, so they are unable to empathize. Sociopaths can feel a full range of emotions, but they don't empathize with others, so they don't hesitate to harm people."

Yet when I looked up, I find no article/site including educated analysis, that would seperate sociopath and psychopath in any such way as those opinions claim them to differ from each other. In fact, most information pretty much describe both the same way to a far extent. But why would there be two different terms then? What the hell?

And if there is an essential difference, which term fits Erik?

I did look up Wikipedia but I do not trust it much for its too freely editavle b anyone at any time. It turns out I actually did look into that buzzle.com site. But you're right, I didn't look hard enough. (it's 6 AM and I sat all night at PC, which affects my attention ability.) And yes, I too, have been seeing और of a sociopath in him, but didn't want to throw the word around before sure of possible difference. (:

According to the DSM IV (For those of आप who aren't psych nerds, this is like the Bible of mental diseases) "psychopath" and "sociopath" are not an official diagnosis. The closest thing is Antisocial Personality Disorder. Therefore, from a purely on-paper medical standpoint, they are EXACTLY the same thing.

Have a link on sociopathic behaviour: link

And one for the DSM IV: link

The DSM V should be coming out within the अगला couple of years. आप may want to check to see if anything is added to this new edition.

Actually,there's only no OFFICIAL medical definition that seperates sociopath and psychopath.Criminoligists,though,seperate them,and the DMSFGOAH you're so fond of has parts that speculate on their differences.

The way I see it, Erik is probably no different than Sherlock Holmes. Sherlock Holmes is a sociopath, not a psychopath (fyi). Erik doesn't do well in social situations which is clearly shown from the moment we first him. Erik has the capability to kill as he's done in the past, but at the same time, he also has the capability to have emotion and to दिखाना feeling.
