Stop Calling Sherlock a Sociopath! Thanks, a Psychologist.Maria Konnikova - CriminalElement.com8/11/12 1:00pm42115EditPromoteGo to permalinkI'd like to get something off my chest.

He is not even a "high-functioning sociopath," as the otherwise truly excellent BBC Sherlock has styled him (I take the words straight from Benedict Cumberbatch's mouth). There. I've said it.
