An individual diagnosed with antisocial personality disorder (APD). Such individuals are charac terized by their callous, unemotional, and exploitive interpersonal demeanor. They frequently violate the rights of others and feel little or no remorse. Some theorists differentiate between a sociopath and a psychopath, though both types are captured by the APD diagnostic criteria.
