Do you know this man?

More often than not, [he] will seem particularly agreeable and make a distinctly positive impression when he is first encountered. Alert and friendly in his attitude, he is easy to talk with and seems to have a good many genuine interests. There is nothing at all odd or queer about him, and in every respect he tends to embody the concept of a well-adjusted, happy person. Nor does he, on the other hand, seem to be artificially exerting himself like one who is covering up or who wants to sell you a bill of goods. He would seldom be confused with the professional backslapper or someone who is trying to ingratiate himself for a concealed purpose. Signs of affectation or excessive affability are not characteristic. He looks like the real thing.

Very often indications of good sense and sound reasoning will emerge and one is likely to feel soon after meeting him that this normal and pleasant person is also one with high abilities. Psychometric tests also very frequently show him of superior intelligence. More than the average person, he is likely to seem free from social or emotional impediments, from the minor distortions, peculiarities, and awkwardnesses so common even among the successful...

At some point, a local reporter suddenly had the idea to check up on the guy - to see if his credentials were real. What the reporter found out was that the only thing that was true about this up and coming politician's "faked bio" was the place and date of birth. Everything else was fictitious. Not only was the man a complete impostor, he had a long history of antisocial behavior, fraud, impersonation, and imprisonment. His only contact with a university was a series of extension courses by mail that he took while in Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary. What is even more amazing is the fact that before he was a con-man, he was a "con-boy." For two decades he had dodged his way across America one step ahead of those he had hoodwinked. Along the way he had married three women and had four children, and he didn't even know what had happened to them. And now, he was on a roll! But darn that pesky reporter!

That could have been written about Jason Ogle.

Thanks for your compliment re the Libz drug policies. Smiling

Back to the general topic of my post... I think you'll find more than one or two people here with ASD... and not many, if any, psychopaths.

And, of course, you'll recognise many people you know here, including me!
(Hat tip: Chris Cathcart.)

Mr Goode

Yeah but the descriptions could apply to many?

(Don't get me wrong - the Libz drugs policies are enlightened - good work there.) I haven't contributed as yet.

I'm fine with you speculating about the intent behind my post. But dredging? You're way off the mark.

Would Sandi's mother have had the misfortune to marry such a man, if she'd been forewarned via this post? There's a clue. Perhaps.

I'm not sure what Mr No Goode wants with this particular topic. You've given me a clue with this. He's dredging.

Yes I do - My mother married one

End result, he surreptitiously sucked out everything she owned including her life.

I know

"Certain organic (brain) disorders and hormonal imbalances mimic the state of mind of a psychopath."

Definitely - it's Kevin Owen!

Sounds familiar

I thought that sounded familiar... I've met some men who fit that description perfectly, while visiting Rimutaka Prison (NB: I was a volunteer, not an inmate!).
