Isnt one of the hallmarks of a sociopath, is that they dont know they are a sociopath and dont consider the possibility that they might be?

No you are thinking of a psychopath. They do not think they are a psychopath. And sociopaths do have empathy.
If you look at the latin roots...
Socio means society
Path means illness or disease
So a sociopath is one who has diseases relevant to society
I think ADD qualifies for that

If I'm not wrong a sociopath is someone who doesn't respect the social laws of the society they are living jn. That's not necessarily adhd.

I don't think ADD and being a sociopath have much in common.

Maybe I watch to much u tube, but aren't sociopaths on the dark side of the force.

DSM-IV Definition. Antisocial personality disorder is characterized by a lack of regard for the moral or legal standards in the local culture. There is a marked inability to get along with others or abide by societal rules. Individuals with this disorder are sometimes called psychopaths or sociopaths.
