Plot twist: He's Tony. Jon actually did go to the bar, and Tony killed him, and assumed his identity.

"The grey area is were you find the complexity, the truth, the humanity." Beautiful quote.

That hit pretty close. I Imagine a psychopath never cried themselves to sleep, that simplifies the test a bit.

It appears a lot of people missed the point of this. This story was neither pro-psychiatry or anti-psychiatry. He masterfully threw in cultural tidbits that created our own bias'. I see Psychologists here blasting this...just a heads up, your own bias kept you from realizing in the end, he did not trust Tony (declined invite for a drink) and it appeared he began to wonder if he, himself, was conned by Tony.

The reality is that this is the art of masterful storytelling utilizing our conscious, subconscious, and senses to all react completely different.

Most important to me is this journalist admitting that he took the bits that backed up how he wanted his story to look and left out anything that contradicted it. It takes a good person to admit that.

"It's a lot harder to convince people you're sane than to convince people you're crazy." I fell that on a spiritual level.

Reminds me of a story about a man who was visiting a friend in a psychiatric hospital. He couldn't find the right ward when he spotted a man watering the garden and asked for directions. The man gave him the information and then said "I'm actually a patient here, you can see that I'm quite normal, could you put in a good word for me, because I don't really belong here." The visitor agreed to do so, then turned away to walk off. Suddenly he was hit in the back of the head with a brick, and the man said "Don't forget now!"

"Grandiose sense of self... which would be hard for him to deny because he was standing under a giant oil painting of himself" 😂😂😂

This talk has been recommended to me since 2012. I watch it today, 26th of August 2020. I give up, algorithm. You're an excellent pesterer.

Tony: I'm not a psychopath!
Tony's doctor: *That's exactly what a psychopath would say!*
