So I'm new, but I'll throw it out there. Did anyone else get a "high functioning sociopath" type diagnosis? I have nothing short of television to compare it to, and we all know how accurate television is. It's hard to see if I'm just being lenient on myself and should pretend to care more, or if I'm doing well enough to say I'm trying with conviction. Any thoughts?

Sherlock was being facetious when he called himself that, it's not a real diagnosis. He made up the term to describe himself, just like made up the term "consulting detective".

No, I'm being 100% serious. "Stop Calling Sherlock a Sociopath! Thanks, a Psychologist": https://www.criminalelement.com/blogs/2 ... -konnikova
