Thank you for your reply, Kate. I have just one more thing that I am curious about concerning him. I think what has dumbfounded me is that he has these conflicting identities and it is a relatively small community. How do sociopaths justify having these different stories when they could easily be found out? He has gone so far as to make up a job (ironically, as a self-employed therapist) and at least one academic degree on LinkedIn recently, where he has real-world professional contacts. Do sociopaths lack foresight or an ability to see the larger picture?
Sociopaths rarely care what others think of them. They are only focused on what they want and how to get it. And this can lead to them lacking insight. His interest may be to seem better than he is and if people notice, he may not feel it matters because he doesn't think they are part of his objective. Only the people he is focused on matter.
Thank you so much for the positive rating and bonus! I appreciate it.
My best to you,Kate
