Psychopaths 'Socially Inept'
"Psychopaths are a paradox. Many of them, like Bundy, are intellectually high functioning, and they clearly know right from wrong. They are not delusional, they are socially inept."
"Psychopaths are a paradox. So many of them, like Bundy, are intellectually high functioning, and they clearly know right from wrong. They are not delusional, but they are socially inept. They seem to lack normal self-control, and they persistently violate social, legal and moral rules. They don’t—as Bundy’s words suggest—comprehend the human social contract. But why? What’s the glitch in the mental machinery? ...Two psychological scientists at the University of New Mexico—Elsa Ermer and Kent Kiehl—suspected that such specific reasoning deficits might underlie the disorder, which would explain why psychopaths’ general reasoning ability seems to stay intact."

What defines a dark horse? The all-important decision to pursue fulfillment and excellence.
When we first set the Dark Horse Project in motion, fulfillment was the last thing on our minds. We were hoping to uncover specific and possibly idiosyncratic study methods, learning techniques, and rehearsal regimes that dark horses used to attain excellence. Our training made us resistant to ambiguous variables that were difficult to quantify, and personal fulfillment seemed downright foggy. But our training also taught us never to ignore the evidence, no matter how much it violated our expectations.
