Dude, you're all over the place. I've had days like that too so I'll cut you a break.
I'm not a dude, girly.
First, many feel that psychopathy and sociopathy are either synonyms, subsets of one another or gradations of the same issue.
I'm not so much interested in how you feel about this.
I AM interested in the phenomenon of PSYCHOPATHY, which is one aspect of sociopathy. It is one aspect of sociopathy that is GENETIC. It is thought that 1% are born psychopaths. Some do not express as sociopathic, since they are often smart enough to disguise their psychopathy. We might point to Trump and Boris as fitting the frame.
Many therefore use the terms interchangeably.
Obviously some don't and you appear to be one of them, which is fine, though it is an error to imply they are universally recognized as distinctly different.
Tut tut. From your ignorance to ad hominem. Congratualtions!
As to your horrific reaction to the idea of only a 50% genetic cause of these issues, I am not here to editorialize, merely to share factoids in this case. As to these stats being "mine", I never stated that I performed the research myself.
Run along and educate yourself please.
My guess is you are completely comfortable with statistics that you agree with and that it is those that don't fit your worldview that mostly suffer from being fudged and made up on the spot.
Wring I tend to favour environmental
rather than genetic causes and solutions, since they are the area where we can act as a society to allieviate problems.
It's that you just do not know what psychopathy is.
