Just rude - must be a trend

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I'm not sure where you're getting some of your definitions from there, potty. Either way, here's a really good read from Psychology Today on the distinctions and similarities between sociopathy and psychopathy - http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/wic ... psychopath" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Many forensic psychologists and criminologists use the terms sociopathy and psychopathy interchangeably. Leading experts disagree on whether there are meaningful differences between the two conditions.
thats the intro of your posted link.

the author of your article believes, there are some differences.
ok, he is free to.

i have read it.

he comes up with an unusual description of what sociopathy is.

its an article about his view point, which is unusal, as he admits in the first two sentences.

'Socio' and 'psycho' have two completely different meanings.

I've got a feeling potty is right on the ball here. :thumb:

Here's more of a clinical perspective on the differences from a forensic specialist:
