Personality disorders are mental health conditions that affect how someone thinks, perceives, feels or relates to others. Antisocial personality disorder is a particularly challenging type of personality disorder characterized by impulsive, irresponsible and often criminal behavior. Psychopaths are people who demonstrates psychopathy. That is not a diagnosis but a set of traits. The criteria for psychopathy include psychological symptoms and certain specific behaviors. The measures of antisocial personality disorder, on the other hand, focus mostly on behaviors you can see. Like other types of personality disorder, antisocial personality disorder is on a spectrum, which means it can range in severity from occasional bad behavior to repeatedly breaking the law and committing serious crimes. Psychopaths are considered to have a severe form of antisocial personality disorder.
