One twin study suggests that psychopathy has a strong genetic component. The study demonstrates that children with anti-social behavior can be classified into two groups: those who were also callous acquired their behavior by genetic influences, and those who were not callous acquired it from their environment "The amygdala is crucial for stimulus-reinforcement learning and responding to emotional expressions, particularly fearful expressions that, as reinforcers, are important initiators of stimulus-reinforcement learning. Moreover, the amygdala is involved in the formation of both stimulus-punishment and stimulus-reward associations. Individuals with psychopathy show impairment in stimulus-reinforcement learning (whether punishment or reward based)and responding to fearful and sad expressions. It is argued that this impairment drives much of the syndrome of psychopathy.
There is a strong genetic link and much evidence to support the idea that psychopathy is passed down and is biological.

"You are a sociopath." However, if they truly are, it won't matter to that person.
A sociopath is a person who does not have a conscious.
people can't help being a sociopath. they can hide symptoms, but that is about all they can do.
Unless a sociopath is professionally diagnosed, you cannot tell that person that he/she is a sociopath. And the chances of one going to get a diagnosis are virtually nil. And DO NOT tell others that you think he/she is a sociopath in case it gets back to the person. Since a sociopath has no conscience, and since only self matters to a sociopath, he/she can be vindictive and even litigious when it comes to being told about his/her condition. There is no therapy to "fix" this condition - just protect yourself and those around you. Get the person out of your life as cleanly and quickly as possible.
Just being a sociopath isn't illegal. You'll have to wait for the sociopath to perform an illegal act at which you can report the person to the police and wait for the legal system to do its thing.

A sociopath is someone who doesn't care about anyone else. A narcissistic person is someone who cares about him or herself very much, to an extreme.

Not all of them, but being a sociopath is partly genetic and the likelihood of sociopathic parents having sociopathic children is higher. It is even higher if both parents are sociopaths, which happens a lot as a sociopath will tend to marry another sociopath as that is the only kind of person they can relate to in anyway.
