The word insane is drastically over used, for everything from mild moodiness and irritability to emotional changes. That's not what this article is about, these are four stories of times I did business with people who where unwell psychologically. Sometimes I ask myself whether it's a degree of insanity within myself that has attracted these people and circumstances or whether it's just a matter of dumb luck that I've been quite intimately ensconced in business 4 separate times with people varying from unstable addicts to genuinely demented... I'm leaning more towards the former than the latter. In addition to being entertaining I hope that these stories can educate you on how to identify the tale-tale signs of insanity in the charming, persuasive people you are considering doing business with.
David was my best friend for 4 years, towards the end of that time it became increasingly evident that he was a none violent, high functioning psychopath.
