In regards to the post Psychopaths or Sociopaths? which is indeed a very interesting topic, as I was once a student majoring in psychology I wondered if there is a difference between a male sociopath/psychopath and a female that has that same disorder.

Besides their differences in gender, do they act and carry out their plans (whether to trick people, lie, rob, etc) in different ways? I have an idea of how a man that has antisocial personality disorder is like and thanks goodness I've never met someone calculating but would a female counterpart do the same exact things or have differences in their methods? I once heard from another site that while a male psychopath is does things very fast and sometimes out of impulse, the female take her time and is more calculating.

I still think that if there are differences between a male and female brain, there must be certain differences between a male and female sociopath/psychopath's brain too.
