Very sure that is Dieffenbachia hybrid. most have wider leaves (wider than length), short petiole (although could be long in low light), and have potential to get bigger stem and leaves compares to Aglaos. yours I believes is still a young plant. if it Dieffen it will get bigger, if it is not, probably it is one of this "compacta" variety

another thing; in all Dieffens I have, you'll get irritated skin by the liquid from cut stem, I never get irritated by Aglaonemas

Yep. That's why it's also called Dumb Cane. To quote from http://www.ourhouseplants.com/...
"All parts of the plant have lots and lots of microscope needle-shaped calcium oxalate crystals and when some unfortunate animal (or person) chows down, they end up with a painful and swollen mouth. In some cases the swelling is so bad it causes the victim to go silent for inability to talk, this is where the common name of Dumb Cane came from. Although not a cold hearted killer, it does cause some very unpleasant side effects and a hefty amount of pain to go with it. Avoid coming into contact with the sap and if you do, wash it off before you accidentally rub your eye or somewhere equally unfortunate."

It looks like so many baby Dief plants for sale in BBS's, that are almost always almost all green with very little white in their leaves.

My skin gets a poison-ivy-like rash from Aglaonema.
