    Antisocial personality disorder (APD) is a psychiatric condition characterized by an individual's common disregard for social rules, norms, and cultural codes, as well as impulsive behavior, and indifference to the rights and feelings of others. Antisocial personality disorder is terminology used by the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, while the World Health Organization's ICD-10 refers to Dissocial personality disorder. People diagnosed with this disorder are typically called Sociopaths.

    Someone that I know is showing all the signs, and I know not how this will affect me. Except for the anger. This person just isn't right.& I need to stay away. He hasn't been diagnosed(yet) but he is definitly a sociopath,
