Psychopathy and sociopathy are two related concepts so before we plunge into explaining their connections to genetics and the environment, you need to have a general understanding of what they are and how they are different. These two terms are often used interchangeably and you may find that not all definitions are the same. Generally speaking, however, these are traits they share and the ones that differentiate them from each other.
Psychopathy Is the Result of “Nature” (Genetics) While Sociopathy Is the Result of “Nurture” (Environment)
