Psychopath or Sociopath?

It's important to know the difference...
Do YOU know the difference?
Characteristics of a sociopath are as followed:
1. Sociopaths are very charming.
2. Sociopaths can be extremely manipulative and will try to con you whenever possible.
3. Sociopaths feel that they are entitled to everything.
4. Sociopaths will lie continuously to get what they want. They can even sometimes manipulate a lie detector.
5. Sociopaths have no remorse, shame or guilt.
6. Sociopaths will show love and happiness only when it serves their purpose. None of the feelings are genuine.
7. Sociopaths have no room for love in their life.
8. Sociopaths need to have excitement in their lives or live on the edge.

11. Sociopaths usually have a long history of juvenile delinquency as well as behavior problems.
12. Sociopaths will never take blame for anything they have done to anyone no matter if it is family or friend.
13. Sociopaths have many sexual partners and tend to act out many sexual acts.
14. Sociopaths rarely stay in one place for a long time (home/work).
15. Sociopaths will change themselves if they know it will keep them from being found out.
Wow. 9 for 15. Hmmm.

12. Psychopaths tend to try suicide, rarely succeeding. 
 3 of 12.... Hmmm again.

Hint: Being from the US and owning a metric shitload of firearms doesn't make me a psychopath...
But calling me one will bring out the sociopathic tendencies in me and will cause you great embarrassment, discomfort and ridicule...
