There is a person I know about irl who has to be a psychopath based on what he has done in his private life - not just cruel and dishonest, but strange, and unfortunately intelligent enough to accomplish plenty. He of course is/was highly successful at manipulation.
Years later I read his professional bio online expecting it to be subtle and intelligent in its manipulation. It was painfully transparent filled with passive-aggression, condescension, and mock humility. I think there are several people online right here who could see through it instantly. Of course people are more cynical now than they were when he was young.
edit: I can't name anyone here though. Strangely enough, I think I blank out from my mind the people I don't want to think about.
