So I wanted to feed my mind with something more mind-rattling…I picked up Jon Ronson’s ‘The Psychopath Test‘. I loved the first chapter. It was gripping, a little disturbing. Just exactly what I needed. The subsequent chapters, explored different spheres of insanity; some a little too close to home. There’s the man who faked madness (to avoid jailterm), a reputable CEO, an MI5 officer turned Messiah, and the Scientology warfare.
And like Ronson, by mid chapter I started to think about people whom I know, whom fit the bill. Most of them I didn’t like.
To be fair I didn’t spare myself. With Bob Hare 20-point Checklist, a shoddy self-diagnosis detected borderline psychopathy.
