I think that although I can understand where you might be coming from, you may have a misunderstanding of depression. Without emotion, without social comparison, without the ability to feel intensely about things in the world, depression wouldn't happen. A sociopath will not become depressed because a sociopath will not feel as a depressed person does. One thing that I think you might be mistaking about depressed people that might make them seem sociopathic is that they don't feel positive emotions as often as others, & severely depressed individuals do not enjoy events & situations & positive things as do most others. So it may seem as if they have a flat affect, but really they are feeling all sorts of emotions on the inside. I really hope you do not continue to think that about individuals who are depressed as sociopathic. Maybe some of them do things that make them seem as such, but I don't think it is because they lack the ability to feel or to empathize. Although they may lack a bit of empathy at times because they are highly focused on their own state of mind too much to focus on the states of others, but I think this depends on the person & their type of depression. This is a very interesting phenomena that I think is worth considering. Although I really have no idea what im talking about cause I havent studied the "disorders" of them mind in any depth at all so maybe my knowledge of such is very slim. I just think that until we have some solid evidence on the phenomena, we should not be make those sorts of judgments about peoples.

I don't know. I've got both, but I'm not sure if one led to the other or not.
