I've had a passionate hatred for sociopaths ever since I was used by one. I knew it was a personality disorder so they can't help it, but I always thought they should just be thrown to the gutter or someplace, like the trash they are but now I've realised they're human too, so maybe they can be saved.
My 9 yr old brother has ODD (Oppositianial Defiance Disorder), which apparently leads to sociopathy and I really fucking hate him. Like, I don't love him as a brother or anything I just purely hate him. He's the main reason I want to move out of the family house and I dont plan on ever speaking to him again once I'm gone. As far as I'm concerned, that little prick is dead to me. I realise that is harsh but that is how I feel. He could very well become a psychopath too.
which is why I ask, can they be saved? Or are they doomed to be manipulative little cockroaches for their full lives?

In a fair amount of cases, psychopathy is due to atypical neuroanatomy, specifically in the areas on the brain that are responsible for emotion. So it's very possible that in the case of your brother that's the case. They can work on changing their behaviours and trying to improve their lives, but they'll always have the abnormal brain structure that makes them inherently psychopathic.0

In some rare cases yes they can come to an understanding but a majority of the time a certain area of the brain is malfunctioning not allowing them to behave or feel like a normal human being. This is usually because portions of the frontal cortex are inactive.
a majority of the time psychopaths do not know or are unaware of emotions, some do posses abilities to feel yet retain a majority of psychopathic traits. Psychopaths are always portrayed in the media as the bad guy, the thing that goes bump in the night; in reality they are not. I am one of those but have I done anything wrong or bad by societies standards? no0
