Hmm, I didn't watch the whole thing, but at around minute 19:00, he seems to miss the mark completely regarding schizoidal types. He claims that what defines it is simply that one is not really interested in reality, except when it affects one directly, and that it's partly because one is more turned inward. WHAT?

Then he says that he did a test, and is "almost" schizoidal himself. Later, he says that he thinks that some schizoidal types are important for humanity's growth. He mentions Plato as an example.:nuts:

In short... "bof !" I'm not impressed. But well, at least he is talking about the book, so some people may want to read it.

This was the schizoidal types according to DSM not AL, he said.

Anyway, I think he made a really good job at presenting the substance of the book (which is not these psycho labels, IMO) and the last part where he applies it to our times with some extensions is really spot on. I don't know if you had the opportunity to watch it thill the end, Chu, but I really think we can be glad he made this video. (Of course, he's labelled as an "extremist", so don't expect a large diffusion too :rolleyes: )

I'm curious, have you seen a peak in the sales of the book ?? (even if I don't hold my breath :-P )

Apologies, Maat. I missed your post earlier. No, I never finished watching it, but got through most of it, and I agree, later he did a much better job explaining things. For example, pathocracy. I'll see if I can watch the rest soon.

And yes, indeed! We DID have a peak in the sales. Not huge, but selling ten copies in a month, plus extra orders from Amazon, is a huge increase compared to what's usual for us. So, I'm pretty sure that it was thanks to his video, and that he got quite a few people interested in the topic. That's something! :thup:
