Jon Ronson: The Psychopath Test

- November 16, 2017

From a jumping off point where Jon Ronson establishes himself as “not a psychopath” just a socially awkward person, it soon becomes clear that diagnosis holds a key place in tonight’s talk. An engaging and thought-provoking evening, with guests Mary Turner Thomson and Eleanor Longden bringing invaluable contributions on the subject of diagnosis of not just psychopathy and the harm and help it can bring in their interview slots. Ronson piqued engagement with detail, and comprehension with examples that were not just sensationalised but stood in a framework of symptoms and behaviours. Conculding with a Q&A with all three speakers, this was an evening that sparked curiosity, intelligence and more.
