I value his contributions and his tests have helped me understand myself.
I suspect that he has ASD as well.

What is your opinion?

From my professional experience he is an utter CNUT!! !! !!
Anything for a "Headline" in a Tabloid is good enough for him!!
Like his Cousin lol.
Tony Attwood all the way for me thanks.
Cohen seems like some bad Conspiracy Theory for me.
Any news so long as it BAD news is HIS remit.
Attwood actually seems to reap the benefits of his theories?! !
Cohen...........er............
Some BOLLOCKS posturing.
Attwood SEEMS to actually care lol?! !! !! !!
FECK COHEN!! !

I had an interesting encounter with Simon Baron-Cohen in the summer of 1979. There's quite a story there, but I don't feel like telling it right now.

:wink:

He is an exemplar in terms of self-promotion, very prone to making "the facts" fit into his theories rather than the other way around, whenever he has a thought he seems to upgrade it to a fact.
