    If you'll google "sociopath psychopath synonyms" you'll find many, many sources that identify them as synonyms.

    I studied a lot of psychology in the 1970s.  At that time the word sociopath was replacing psychopath, because the latter was thought to have too many connotations of violence.  It was a kind of political correctness in the field of psychology.

    Don't rely on sources earlier than the 1980s on this issue.
