Hi Dr Ashori here.

Sociopaths generally have a very hard time with change, it's a matter of losing control.

Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 1 year ago.

They generally act out more of their anti-social behaviors and do a more aggressive form of retaliation.

Usually depression or anxiety is coexistent which also is worsened by change.

Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 1 year ago.

If change is introduced very slowly and the person can understand the reason for change it's possible to lessen the degree of the reaction but generally a sociopathic individual will still have some negative traits such as anger, frustration, violence, disobedience, acting out, displaying abusive behavior, showing poor inhibition and being quite excitable.
