What is a ''sociopath''?
Antisocial personality disorder (APD or sometimes ASPD) is a personality disorder which is often characterised by antisocial and impulsive behaviour. APD is generally (if controversially) considered to be the same as, or similar to, the disorder that was previously known as psychopathic or sociopathic personality disorder. Approximately 3% of men and 1% of women have some form of antisocial personality disorder.
A sociopath is a person who, usually due to a congenital brain disorder, but sometimes due to a trauma to the brain suffered at birth, cannot process emotional information the way other people do.

Not all of them, but being a sociopath is partly genetic and the likelihood of sociopathic parents having sociopathic children is higher.

It is also a responsibility for society to care the sociopath because they are mentally ill just as as schizophrenic is...There is NO treatment available for the sociopath .
Completely cut all ties. Block the number. Block from facebook. Block the email. If sociopath doesn't get the message and tries to contact you by coming to your house, get a restraining order. Do not EVER talk or communicate with sociopath again. You do not owe sociopath an explanation. Do not look back and surround yourself with people that actually care about you.
