9. Good questions.

Perhaps the biggest distinction between ASPD and psychopathy is that anti-socials generally have a criminal code of conduct -- think of the pre-1962 mobsters going to prison without ratting out others -- whereas psychopaths do not. They will knife their closest associates in the back without giving it a second thought, if they believe it benefits them.

Narcissism is a personality trait of psychopaths. In other words, all psychopaths are narcissists, but not all narcissists are psychopaths. Keep in mind that, before Hare, Erich Fromm diagnosed psychopaths as "malignant narcissists." (Like Dr. Hare, it is certain that Fromm would not misidentify psychopathy for ASPD for insurance purposes.)
