I'm looking to connect with those who identify as sociopaths for honest and truthful answers to.some questions I have. I would really appreciate some insight into the mind of someone who thinks they may be a sociopath. Can anyone help?

There are Two opposites, the Psychopath and, the Sociopath . .

Psychopaths believe they can do what-ever, they want, they're Basically what you Could name, As evil . .

Sociopaths are a Sub-version, of the Psychopath, who is Simply An evil person, Doesn't care, Doesn't have Empathy . . Sociopaths are the OPPOSITE - - They Have too much Empathy, And, They Care, Far too Much, About others, I'll explain, But that's what Makes them Criminals, Too ! !

If I see some-one stealing, an Apple or, an oranges - - I Might say, this person deserves a punishment, For stealing ! ! A Normal person, not a Sociopath, might say, This Needs to Give a Warning, and, Maybe a small fine, then Justice is Met . .

A Sociopath is Far too strict, He'll say, For stealing an apple, Ten years - - In prison, or Severe beating, And So on . .

A Sociopath will there-fore " Over-punish " Any crime, they see . .

Does that make sense, Psychopaths don't believe, in Any law, but Sociopathy begins, When you Make the Law far Too harsh, Then justice is ignored . . . Do you understand how the police Can also be Criminals, If they go Too far, And Start hurting Prisoners, Far more, Than they Deserve . .

Too much Law is also, A crime . . A Sociopath is Someone who behaves, That way - - He " Over-punishes " Others, for small crimes . . Then the Law becomes An instrument, Of evil X xx

That's what a Sociopath is ! !!

Thanks for your reply. I thought psychopaths and sociopaths were basically the same. People who lacked emotions such as guilt and love etc. I'm trying to understand the mind of someone who.lacks these emotions and how it makes them feel knowing they don't have the same emotions as " typical people" do they want to have those emotions or are they happy they don't or just indifferent.

I don't think Jbb79's description of a sociopath is particularly accurate.
The distinctions are difficult to understand.
This is quite a good article:

Jbb79 description isn't quite right.
The difference between "sociopath" and "psychopath" are that a psychopath is born with a lack of empathy and a sociopath because of a traumatic experience or a way of survival starts to behave has if he doesn't have empathy. Plus, by norm a psychopath is narcissist by norm while a sociopath isn't.
This said, both of the names are more of a mainstream nomenclature and both of the problems are some kind of schizoid personality disorder wich is basically a personality disorder where you have a lack of empathy, interest in human relationships, emotional coldness, etc.
