Sorry I didn't respond earlier! I just saw this!

Mental disability, although rarely used anymore, may refer to cognitive impairment but mental disorder refers to a "disordered mind".

It would be more common now to hear the phrase "psychiatric condition" used vs mental disorder.

Instead of "mental disability"; "Intellectual Disability" is now used.

Psychopath & Sociopath are considered by many to be synonymous but neither one is an actual clinical diagnosis. They are actually presentations of behavior & either one (but not both) will manifest in a person diagnosed with Antisocial Personality Disorder (APD).

Pathologic(al) refers to the manifestation of suffering. A "pathological liar" describes a person whose atypical behavior of lying is the manifestation of their personality disorder. When a tumor is found during surgery, it is sent to the laboratory for "pathology" to determine whether or not it has manifested from cancerous cells.

With "Psyche" defined as the ego or soul of the mind, "Psycho + path" means "the mind suffers".

"Socio" as in "society" means the "Socio + path" refers to "society suffers".

To the Psycopath, life has no finish line & we add to the thrill of the chase. They do not suffer us. We do suffer them.

In contrast; the Sociopath does suffer us... as we do them. The majority of humanity is an obstacle between them & the finish line. They consider us the same as we might consider that flat tire in morning rush hour traffic we suffered on the way to work.

I agree with those that say the Psychopath is the more severe of the two; as I would rather be on the road with an impaired driver than a blind one.

Nope. Inertia's movement maintains. Momentum's movement gains.

Jungles indeed have trees- lots of them and they can be quite tall. A jungle is just a forest in the tropical regions.

Pond and lake is a matter of size. Sea is saltwater, not fresh water.

Crocks are smaller than alligators and have a longer and more skinny mouth.
Falcons are smaller than Hawks. Throw in Kestrals too.


....yes, read more....

Puma, cougar and mountain lion/panther are the same but jaguars are a totally different animal. Larger and more heavily muscled in addition to coloration and geographical locality. Female goats are nannies.


Raptors are classified by type usually going by wing structure. "Hawk" is a rather generic term, encompassing accipiters and buteos. Falcons are their own species, and then there are eagles, owls and buzzards/vultures. Buteos are the larger hawks, such as the red tail and Swainsons. Accipiters are goshawks, kestrels and Merlins and also the sharp shinned. Falcons in N America are the prairie and Peregrine. The osprey is a distinct sub set having a very different wing structure. They are often called fish eagles.
