I R A Smartass

I was watching yet another crime show and I was relaying the story to the hubs...
Me: "The guy's a psychopath! No wait, sociopath? Eh? Sociopath, right?"
Hubs: "Go read that book on the differences between a psychopath and sociopath. There's a big distinction."
Me: "Duh. Of course there's a distinction. Otherwise it'd just be called one thing."
Hubs: "Alright smartass."
That's me :)
* Edited to add: Here's a link I found on the explanation of the differences between a sociopath and a psychopath. My two cents -- think Natural Born Killers vs Silence of the Lambs.

I'm curious now; what is the difference? :)

Haha! What's funny is I was having the same trouble in my class last week. We were discussing what not to do as a teacher to avoid them ending up a sociopath. "Sociopath or Psychopath? Psychopath. No, I think you mean sociopath..."

That reminds me of a definition in a psych course I took, the difference between neurotic and psychotic. The neurotic dreams of castles in the air, the psychotic moves in.
