    It names several traits, and explains whether Sherlock Holmes was right to name himself a "high functioning sociopath". Hope it helps. smile

    If you don't feel like reading it, here are the characteristics in a nutshell.

    Lack of empathy
    Shallow emotions
    Narcissism
    Grandiose self-image
    Charm and charisma
    High level of intelligence
    Manipulative
    Very secretive
    Sexually deviant
    Do not take criticism well
    Favor Totalitarianism
    Lawfulness (surprisingly enough)
    Quickly bored
    Impulsive
    Compulsive lying

      Thanks. I know someone who has many of these characteristics. She is extremely secretive and competitive.
