#ASPD stands for Anti-Social Personality Disorder. Sociopaths are typically anti-social either due to witnessing trauma, enduring trauma, or because they have a functional emotional incapacitation. Psychopaths are anti-social by nature.

Typically “psychos” are the more volatile of the two subset ASPD personality types. It is important to note that the DSMV does not differentiate between Sociopaths, Psychopaths, Narcopaths, or Dark Triads — all the definitions of which are currently being investigated as stand-alone types.
