A synpath is something that someone identifies with but not as. The idea is similar to the concept of a hearttype; the coiner was not aware that the word otherhearted existed to describe a similar concept when they coined it. The coiner describes it as such:
"Synpath is a tidy name for something you identify with on several levels, which could be a concept that resonates really strongly with you, an animal or mythological creature you feel you act like, or a person or character you share a lot of common behaviors with, among other things."
While many people have attempted to define a specific difference between synpaths and hearttypes, in practice they are used as synonyms.
