The new book by Warren Todd, The Complete Neurotic, is out now. It is a wonderful book, and a really good addition to the field of neurosis. The book is about how our minds work in a way that is very reminiscent of a chess match. Todd does a really great job of showing us the three levels of egoic awareness, and also of showing how these levels are interconnected with the others.
As a neuroscience major, I’m fascinated by the fact that there are so many levels of self-awareness. But the real fun comes from seeing how people actually use the information they learn about their own minds to become better people. So while I don’t think Warren Todd is a great guy, I also don’t think he’s a complete idiot either.
Warren Todd is probably the only one of us who is unaware of his own self-awareness. He’s the only one of us who has never even heard that he’s an amnesiac. But when he shows up, all the egoic awareness kicks in. The first time we see him, he’s telling us that he’s on a boat and is taking a nap.
My point is, we do have to remember that even though Warren Todd is a genius and the smartest person we’ve ever met, he’s also the least self-aware person. So the fact that he doesnt realize his own genius is just a side-effect. He’s the one who should be taking personal responsibility for his actions. It’s one of the reasons I think that Warren Todd is probably the dumbest person we’ve ever met.
Yep. And that’s true for most of humanity. Like the person who has a high IQ, but doesn’t really get it and is stuck in a really small box. Or the person who can be a brilliant computer scientist, but only half the time and is only as smart as everyone else. Or the person who only has a high GPA, but is so incredibly self-conscious that only a few people know about it.
Warren Todd and the people around him are so arrogant and self-involved that they can be blind to their own motivations. At the same time, they do not realize how far they are from the end goal. In an interview with the Huffington Post, Warren Todd said: “The game is not about me. I’m a pawn in the game, but I’m the one who has to make it to the end, I’m the guy who has to win.
Warren Todd is the player in Warren Todd and the High-GPA Game. The game is only about him. He is the one who has to make it to the end and win the game.
Warren Todd is a person who is so arrogant that he has his own agenda. And that includes himself and his own agenda. So if he is the player in Warren Todd and the High-GPA Game, he is a player who is clearly uninterested in winning, uninterested in getting to the end, and uninterested in making his own life better.
Warren Todd is a person who is a self-centered jerk, so it makes sense that he would have a personal agenda that involves making his life better. The point is that Warren Todd is so self-centered that he is unable to fully take responsibility for himself and this world. So, his own personal agenda is what he is focused on.
Warren Todd’s self-centeredness is probably one of the most disturbing parts of his character. The fact that he seems to have few personal boundaries is really a reflection of his self-centeredness. The fact that he can’t take responsibility for himself and this world is a reflection of his self-centeredness. In the same way that we can’t help but try to make our own lives better, Warren Todd tries to make his own life better.
