The term "sociopath social climber" sounds a statement condemning the actions of someone considered to be getting socially "above themselves" at the expense of others and "fair play" (sincerity, truth, honesty, integrity and so on). However, a "sociopath" in the medical sense of the word is a person who has been diagnosed with Antisocial Personality Disorder (and is therefore an "antisocial", "sociopathic" or "psychopathic" personality), according to the diagnostic criteria. The word is often used to describe people who are harmful or damanging to others (and not necessarily diagnosed with a mental health disorder). "Sociopathic" personalities are people without a conscience: they lie, cheat, exploit, con, use and abuse others CONSISTENTLY. The sociopathic personality is narcissistic and is extremely self centered, self absorbed, self serving and can be utterly ruthless in puruit of their wants, needs, goals etc. At the extreme end of the contiminium, these people are capable of anything (Murder etc). "Social climber" is a value judgment, I guess. And it's not a particularly nice one from my egalitarian point of view as it smacks of Passing judgment on another for getting "above their station" in life socially in terms of CLASS. George Bush.

'Sociopath' only implies the potential for anti-social behavior. What the sociopath 'deserves' is psychiatric help to attempt warding off any such behavior. Perhaps, as a society, we extend our boundaries a bit too far, sometimes, but that is where citizen liberties enter into the picture.

A sociopath is someone who doesn't care about other people's feelings. A deviant sociopath isn't in any psychology text that I can find. But here are some things that you might be referring to: A sociopath who is abnormal in some way. This would be any sociopath who doesn't fit the exact definition of a sociopath. If a deviant sociopath is just your name for a sociopath. See top. An unpredictable sociopath. A sociopath who is unpredictable in some way, beyond a sociopath's normal unpredictability.

No. Sociopaths have no conscience. The victim of a sociopath has a conscience and emotions and will not become a sociopath. If the victim of a sociopath is acting different it is probably because of the abuse the victim is enduring from the sociopath. If you have any more questions I would be happy to answer. Based on personal experience, I believe this is accurate.
