17. As others have explained, psychopath and sociopath are synonymous,

although in some professions (forensic psychiatry), terms are sometimes used to emphasize the severity of behaviors (i.e., Ted Bundy is often described as a psychopath, whereas a white collar criminal a sociopath).

A question I wonder about: Is it possible to be both psychotic and a psychopath? Some psychiatrists who have studied Trump say it is possible, it depends on whether or not he believes his lies.

In that case we would be talking about a psychopath who is completely disconnected from reality.
