Sociopaths Are Among Us!

How Should You Choose to Live with Them?

The other day I was in an interesting and provocative discussion about Sociopathy.  The conversation started with the other party asking for my definition and distinction of a psychopath vs. a sociopath.  My friend was ranting about her perception of millennials being an “Id-like population of sociopaths.”  Self absorbed, and only thinking about themselves.  For clarity this is a bias belief and not true or founded on evidence. This is especially true, if we are talking globally.  My argument was that millennials did not create capitalism, or Nixon’s Watergate, or the movie Wall Street (or its characters). Sociopathic traits in Baby Boomers had a heavy hand in this social direction of moral human detachment, and negligent impulsivity.
