Sociopaths and psychopaths are actually different.
Well, we quickly discovered where your knowledge see you tonight. Exceeds mine. The last psychology class I took was over 10 years ago. I thought I remembered the professor telling us that sociopath was the DSM-V defined disorder a psychopath would fall under. But who knows if I even remember correctly, or what has changed since then.

I know what you did there hahaSome people are just paranoid because of past horrific experiences

Psychopathy requires above average intelligence.
Where have you read this?
A medical textbook.
Hm. I'll take your word for it. It is mostly sociopaths in prison, after all. The psychos must not get caught for a reason.
Psychopaths tell people what they want to hear, so they appear normal.
@Twalli Psychopathy doesn’t require above average intel. It frequently involves below average criminals.
@OddBeMe are you sure they're psychopaths and not sociopaths?
@Twalli Neither terms are defined scientifically, but yes, sociopaths are usually of higher intelligence and have been known CEOs. Psychopaths are the usual low level criminals as they're antisocial.
I always thought it was the opposite, actually. Sociopaths are usually the low functioning ones, aren't necessarily born sociopaths either. Can still bond with people, though it's very hard. Psychopaths I've always read were born that way, literally cannot form connections with people. Can fake it but don't actually feel anything. Also aren't always high functioning, can be unintelligent.
Honestly we're prob both right and wrong. This is why psychiatrists don't use these terms. They're pretty arbitrary. Basically, the dangerous ones have antisocial personality disorder. And the majority or lower inteligent criminals. Higher intelligent ones become CEOs.
@OddBeMe I read that sociopaths develop. Some ccx even caused them to be that way. They were already wired weird, but the even twisted them to lack love and empathy. Psychopaths never had it to start. Psychopaths also know they are wired weird, and use their intelligence to fool people into believing they're normal. They are master manipulators. Sociopaths can do it to a degree, but not all can. Unlike psychopaths, sociopaths can form familial bonds. They can't love, but they can bind with people.
Psychopaths as in personality disorder.
But what I'm trying to get at here is actully diagnosed or not as it would be differnt
Sometimes I don't get your opinions like at all
