I had it backwards. Sociopaths can experience actual bonding with another person, but psycopaths cannot.Most sociopaths are created due to their experiences as children, where psychopaths are pretty much born without the ability to empathize or feel guilt.

However, psycopaths can and often do create a seemingly normal personality to be able to move through society. They can be both charming and brutal at the same time. Like a lot of CEOs and corporate attornies ;0)

Link to an article explaning the the differences between psychopaths and sociopaths.
