    I avoid psycho-social definitions because I think they are largely false. Good for stereotyping and chit-chat but not much else. I understand psychopathy to mean the same thing as sociopathy.

    Here:
    https://www.forbes.com/sites/victorl.../#5e508c64104a
    http://www.sociopathworld.com/2013/1...ociopaths.html
    https://hbr.org/2004/10/executive-psychopaths
    https://www.huffingtonpost.in/amrita...b_7965882.html

    One source includes in a list of what it calls famous sociopaths, Hitler, Stalin, Ted Bundy and a couple of other serial killers, so it's not a flattering label to have. But they also can be very successful in business owing to the qualities of being dedicated, focused, driven people.

    Steve Jobs, an entrepreneur and businessman of epic stature, however, was not generally considered a sociopath despite the contempt he engendered in some of his employees for his cold, driven attitude. They waited until he was dead before they let him have it too, which suggests they felt hghly threatened by him for whatever reason. Probably an $#@!, RIP.

    Actually, I'm not sure what a sociopath is or even if there is such a thing.

    The term has such negative connotations that one would be advised not to use it to describe someone else, at least not while in their company. ("$#@!" works very well and means next to nothing.) I've used it sometimes, however. If a person is labeled a sociopath often enough by his peers, he's probably someone to at least be alert to. Although it apparently can be either good or bad, it's mostly bad. These people are generally not well-liked, except that some women find them very sexy, which is not the same thing as likeability.

    Miranda Priestly in the Devil Wears Prada is described as a sociopath. Definitely not sexy. How many of her do you know?

    There appears to be something to this, and I've heard in the past that some women are attracted to prisoners -- even death row prisoners -- and will marry them while they're still incarcerated. The study suggests they may act extra confident and that attracts some types of women. But, what about the bad-boy syndrome?

    Is this the same as women who consistently seek out abusive male partners? I've known women who did that, despite the fact they were miserable.

    Is this inherited or learned behavior?

    On the one hand, confidence can be attractive in general.

    On the other hand, a lot of women that go for the bad boy types have a history of being abused as a child. In short, if a woman has been subjected to an abusive father, she may end up being attracted to men who act the same way.

    It's rare to find a woman that likes the bad boy types who doesn't have daddy issues.

    Sociopathy and psycopathy are very similar, but not the same. Sociopaths are considerably more common than you might think, and most are perfectly harmless, if lacking in empathy and displaying a certain disregard for both personal safety and that of others.

    Psycopathy are the extreme end of that. All psycopathy are sociopaths but not all sociopaths are psycopathy.

    In the interests of full disclosure I should mention I am a well adjusted sociopath.

    I'd have to guess that the ones who correspond with, and in some cases marry prisoners serving life sentences or who are on death row are in a slightly different category than the ones who actually date dangerous men out in the real world. They are aroused by the danger - also possibly by the notoriety (which they see as fame) that such behavior gains them - but at the same time they are physically safe.
