Aspergers See Through Sociopaths
Different motives: Here's a simplistic account from a non-psychiatrist who's seen a lot. Both treat others badly. Sociopaths are indifferent to the feelings of others, and cause pain because they enjoy doing it. They don't care. Aspies cannot understand the feelings of others and do not mean to be jerks. They are very grateful when guided to being more diplomatic and able to read others. ...Read more
A sociopath is someone who exemplifies antisocial personality disorder. Sociopaths are glib and superficially charming; they are masters of influence and deception.

Yes -Team of Experts: Asperger's syndrome is a condition that has been considered by some to fall along the autistic spectrum, and is considered by many at this point to be a variant of high functioning autism. For that reason and others, the term Asperger's syndrome is no longer considered to be a diagnosis by psychiatrists and other physicians that use the DSM-V (the guide book of diagnosis and their descriptions that is used by doctors to diagnose patients with psychiatric conditions). However, the important part of your question is helping you to get the help you need to function at the highest level for you, which is the purpose of any medical or psychiatric diagnosis. While your primary care doctor might be a good place to start, a psychiatrist is specially trained to help those with conditions such as those along the autism spectrum.

Again, please speak to your doctor. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
