Sociopath-- psychopath is used more as a popular decree, one being a psychosis and the other social upbringing-- a true sociopath will have no feelings and only seek their own advantage without being encumbered by their superego. A rational sociopath will understand the rules of society whereas a disorganized one will not and each will act accordingly. If a man abuses a woman he loves it's more of an obsessive attachment issue. Research different abnormal psychologies, personality disorders, and psychosis. Diagnose your character and then go from there.
Hope that helps
Writing is an inside joke.
Its publication, an opportunity to let others in.
The same can be said of all art
