That's why I made this, people's not going to check if their definition of "antisocial" is related with ASPD because they already have an only definition for the word. Would you actually search the definition of "apple" if you already have a definition for it? You could be wrong, but you've got an idea-definition already which you think is true.

However, if people come here because they feel they're unsociable, shy or find it hard to be sociable, they should know they're searching for the word "asocial" rather than "antisocial", and I hope the title explains basically that antisocial and asocial are two different words, if you don't know one word, you would feel interested in knowing what does the other word mean (or if you think both words are synonyms).
