A sociopath is mainly identified by there being something very wrong with a person's conscious. They either 1) have a conscious with "holes" in it, 2)they don't seem to have one at all or 3) they are able to completely neutralize their sense of conscious into a perspective that they aren't doing anything wrong.
One thing is for sure: Sociopaths only care about themselves and only see themselves as being "real" or truely human. Everybody and everything outside of themselves are twisted in their mind into mere objects to be used to achieve personal fulfillment.
A sociopath oftin believes that they are doing nothing wrong or doing something greatly good, due to their egocentricity and grandiose sense of self-worth. They will cold-bloodedly take what they want and do as they please at any expense of anyone in their lives; predators who satisfy their lust for power and control through superficial charm, manipulation, intimidation, and violence.
There seems to be a difference between the made sociopath (one who's lived a life with a childhood that pushed them into the mind state of a sociopath) and the "true" sociopath (one who is born a sociopath.)
- Common Sociopath: simple lack of conscious.
- Alienated Sociopath: an inability to love or recieve love.
- Aggressive Sociopath: a consistent saddistic streak.
- Dyssocial Sociopath: an ability to abide by GANG rules, as long as these rules are the WRING rules.
A list of common (but not limmited-to) sociopathic traits and charictaristics:
Egocentricity, callousness, lack of impulse control, exaggerated sexuality, great boasting, inability to resist temptation, a lowly attitude toward the opposite sex, a lack of intirest in bonding with a mate, siblings or their own children. Superficial and glib charm, need for stimulation and continuous praise, lack of remorse, guilt, empathy and behavioral controls. Juvinile delinquency, criminal versatility, many short-term relationships and sometimes a God-like grandiose sense of self worth. It all begins and ends with that person's defect of conscious.
Something like the Vulcans in Star Trek a sociopath's reasoning can't seem to handle any mixing of their cognition and emotions. Apparently, some of the more prominant psycologists believe it only takes THREE of the above to be defined as a sociopath.
A true Sociopath is rare and ever more rare is a woman who is a sociopath. Some rather well known sociopaths are Charles Manson, Ted Bundy, Marcas Wesson and Scot Peterson.
Some fictional sociopaths are Kevin (Sin City) and Lisa (Girl, Interrupted)

A word that's thrown around an awful lot these days. Originally reserved for very sick, antisocial individuals, people are now branded "sociopaths" for minor transgressions. A dandified way of calling somebody an asshole, if you will.

Often seen in use on Reddit and Tumblr.
Person A: Did you just double-dip that chip??
Person B: Yeah.
Person A: You're not allowed to do that.
Person B: Yeah.
Person A: Sociopath!

A sociopath is something with disregard for others. They do not care about other and have no conscience on consequence or the issue to come after making decisions. If you want to think of a person, use Jake Paul
Have you seen Jake Paul’s new video? He’s acting like a sociopath!

The definition given is inaccurate ("For example, if someone prefers to be alone all the time rather than be among friends, family, or other people. Another could be someone who intentionally cuts their wrist everytime they feel they did "something wrong"")

Self-injury has nothing to do with being a sociopath. I find this offensive and increases the stigma of a serious disorder

Sociopath refers to a person who lacks a conscience

The worst, most disgusting, biggest garbage individual you will ever meet in your whole entire life and absolutley deserves NOT a single ounce of compassion, respect or love because they themselves are incapable of it and will deceitfully seek to use it against you any chance they get to take as much as they can then skipping away laughing all the way home.
Sociopath: "I enjoy spending time with you;(All you are is money)" *grin*
