Is Mitt Romney a psychopath? [View all]



http://cnx.com/?p=1748

Listening to this week’s encore presentation of This American Life, I found myself once again enraptured by the story of “the Psychopath Test” as discussed in this book by Jon Ronson. When the show first aired almost a year ago I was taken aback by its story of how the test was created, has been used, and has been abused, over the decades.

But in light of recent revelations I found myself with a different thought running through my head all through the show.

Is Mitt Romney a psychopath?


So I decided to apply the 20 question PCL-R test to good old Willard. Here’s what I found. Each question is scored on a scale of 0 (not at all applicable), 1 (sort of applicable), or 2 (spot on applicable); feel free to play along at home and see if you reach the same results I do.


Full test results available at the link.
