Is there a difference between sociopathy and antisocial personality disorder?

basically yes, it was meant to encompass all anti social personalities. I like the factor 1 and factor 2 models. Psycopathy being factor 1 and sociopathy being factor 2 which is mostly anti social behavior: I think the difference isn’t really that important except for therory and for the sake of discussion purposes.

Sociopathy is an informal term that refers to a pattern of antisocial behaviors and attitudes. In the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), sociopathy is most closely represented by Antisocial Personality Disorder.
