    diagnosis, and was not purposefully trying to quote the DSM or compare her behavior to that level of pathology (or I'd have done so more carefully!) - just using what I think of as a common definition of sociopath.  Common vernacular would dictate that someone who is unable to empathize with the needs of others or who acts with disregard for such things acts in a sociopathic manner.

    Never having interviewed or even met the woman, of course it would be unethical to attempt a CLINICIAL diagnosis of her behavior.
