Psychopath vs Sociopath vs Psychotic

People always want to know what is the difference between and psychopath and sociopath? 
In my experience sociopaths and psychopaths are the same thing. There has been some confusion with the term psychopath and sociopath. 
The original name for this disorder was “psychopath”  but most people and the media confused it with “psychotic". The difference in a person being a psychopath and a person being psychotic is that a psychotic person is truly unaware of what is really going on around them, they have a chemical imbalance in their brain. 
When a psychopath is fully aware of what they are doing when they harm someone. When someone who is psychotic is not fully aware of what they are doing is wrong.

Example - If a psychopath kills your dog, it is because he wants to hurt you, and knows by killing your dog will hurt you. 
If a psychotic person kills your dog, it is because he believes the dog is evil, and the dog is trying to kill him, and take over the world, so he thinks he must kill the dog before the dog kills him. 
As you can see the psychotic person is not in touch with reality and has literally lost his mind, and is hearing voices and seeing things that are not real. The person is suffering from psychosis and some sort of chemical imbalance such as schizophrenia, and hallucinations. 
The psychopath is not hearing voices or seeing hallucinations. The psychopath is just evil and has no conscience. The psychopath does horrible and evil things because he intends to hurt and cause another person emotional harm and psychological damage 

The name was changed to sociopath in the 1930's in attempt to lesson the confusion between a psychopath and a psychotic person. 

Recently the media again caused confusion to the public and made misperceptions that all sociopaths were vicious serial killers, like Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, and Charles Manson. 
The truth is that a majority of sociopaths are not violent, and do not kill (kill you physically, yes they may kill your spirit and soul) And they will destroy your life, they are all pathological liars, con artist and have no moral compass. Some are capable of murder, but they rarely do murder a person. That's what makes them so hard to detect, is that they are able to look as is they are normal. They just go through life, flying under the radar, making people around them miserable. They leave a path of destruction (financial and emotional) everywhere they go. 

So now psychiatrists and psychologists call the condition “antisocial personality disorder” (ASPD). 

Sociopaths may look like us, but they are not like us. Sociopaths are ruthless. Normal people are not “ruthless”. 
Ruthless is basically someone with no pity or compassion for life, all forms of life. 

The best way to protect yourself from a sociopath is to avoid him or her. And refuse to have any kind of contact or communication.

The problem is — spotting a sociopath. They blend in, and are able to pretend to have compassion and care. By the time you realize that you are dealing with someone who is ruthless, callous and conscienceless, they have probably already caused irreparable damage to you.  

The most dangerous of the sociopath is the female sociopath, she could be the soccer mom, the pta parent, the blonde hair, blue eyed, sweet woman who most people have no idea what her life is like behind closed doors. But her children and family. She is charismatic and wants everyone to believe she is the best mother ever. And will do anything for her children. But the truth is, she is able to convince others she is doing all these wonderful things, when she is doing nothing. She has minions who support her and do her work for. They will pick up her children, take to the doctor, they will also lie for her and do what she tells them to do.

Men are more common than women sociopaths. But do not ever believe that the men are more dangerous. That is not true, the female sociopath is just as dangerous. If not more because she will use the fact that she is a woman, to hide her true self. Because as a society, we view all woman as mothers, care takers and nurturers. So we are less likely to believe a mother can be capable of such disgusting and horrific acts on others...
