2% of all human beings are sociopaths.

Pathological Lying, no problem whatsoever with telling lies. They often pass lie detector tests. Lies feel the same to them as truth. They do not "feel" for themselves or others but are very, VERY observant and learn to fake empathy to appear normal. Bored all the time because little of the day is taken up thinking about people and relationships, since people are just tools or objects. They switch activities often, cant be entertained for long. Very active and hardworking much of the time in order to gain power.

I didn't vote for Pantani more out of not speaking ill of the dead because he definitely fills those criteria.

Cippo is a jerk but an amusing lovable charismatic one, not a sociopath.

Boonen - too rubbish at lying
