    Perhaps he is nwavputz. Perhaps they are different people with the same psychopathological traits.
    • He has a grandiose idea of who he is and what he can achieve.
    • Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, or brilliance.
    • Requires excessive admiration from followers and outsiders.
    • Has a sense of entitlement - expecting to be treated special at all times.
    • Is arrogant and haughty in his behavior or attitude.
    • Has an exaggerated sense of power (entitlement) that allows him to bend rules and break laws.
    • Is hypersensitive to how he is seen or perceived by others.
    • Publicly devalues others as being inferior, incapable, or not worthy.
    • Is frequently boastful of accomplishments.
    • Needs to be the center of attention and does things to distract others to insure that he or she is being noticed by arriving late, using exotic clothing, overdramatic speech, or by making theatrical entrances.
    • Has insisted in always having the best of anything (house, car, jewelry, clothes) even when others are relegated to lesser facilities, amenities, or clothing.
    • Doesn’t seem to listen well to needs of others, communication is usually one-way in the form of dictates.
    • Haughtiness, grandiosity, and the need to be controlling is part of his personality.
    • Behaves as though people are objects to be used, manipulated or exploited for personal gain.
    • Anyone who criticizes or questions him is called an “enemy.”
    • Refers to non-members or non-believers in him as “the enemy.”
    • Acts imperious at times, not wishing to know what others think or desire.
    • Believes himself to be omnipotent.
    • Has “magical” answers or solutions to problems.
    • Is superficially charming.
    • Habitually puts down others as inferior and only he is superior.
    • Has a certain coldness or aloofness about him that makes others worry about who this person really is and or whether they really know him.
    • Is deeply offended when there are perceived signs of boredom, being ignored or of being slighted.
    • Treats others with contempt and arrogance.
    • Is constantly assessing for those who are a threat or those who revere him.
    • The word “I” dominates his conversations. He is oblivious to how often he references himself.
    • Doesn’t seem to feel guilty for anything he has done wrong nor does he apologize for his actions.
    • Believes he possesses the answers and solutions to world problems.
    • Rigid, unbending, or insensitive describes how this person thinks.
    • Tries to control others in what they do, read, view, or think.
    • Works the least but demands the most.
    • Seems to be highly dependent of tribute and adoration and will often fish for compliments.
    • Sees self as “unstoppable” perhaps has even said so.
    • Conceals background or family which would disclose how plain or ordinary he is.
    • Doesn’t think there is anything wrong with himself – in fact sees himself as perfection or “blessed.”
    Where did I get this list of traits? From here: Source.

    Kinda scary, eh?

    I'll get the goat, you set up the circle and candles.

    Jokes aside I do think people on SBAF are being too irreverent about the whole ordeal. Yeah he started it by being... him, but if we really want to hit him in the analyser and fanbase it would be best to have a frank discussion with him without all the flippancy. Makes it hard for others to take the content on here too seriously, though that's their loss really.

    @Elnrik LOL! Tempted to make an ASR account and post that there.

    You know what really creeped me out about him? The non-chalant and professional manner in how he deflected and shifted the argument (Jude's results) on HF by saying Jude never provided comparable SE measurements.

    I was like wow! It's super weird pathological behavior to for people to alter reality like that. The argument later shifted back somewhat but in a different form when some of his minions said that Jude's SE results were compable and validated Amir's results (they did not).

    Amir would never allow that. I've read enough of this guys posts to see that any challenge to himself is artfully deflected or otherwise trivialized. If he can't do that, he'll attack your character and experience to divert the question.

    I am pretty tired of this topic, tbh. For my purposes, all that matters is credibility, and the lack thereof on the part of both is all that matters, whether it's one guy, two guys, or some weird collective of who knows how many with the same agenda of "measurements are all that matter, Schitt is crap." The approach is pretty useless to me regardless. Too much brain damage for an already brain damaged sort like me.

    @purr1n Sorry for the trouble, but where the fuck did he do that? That's some Kafka-meets-Orwell shit right there ._.

    @Elnrik Good point, I be a dumbass idealist, haha. Still, that there are people who keep on with him despite all the weirdness just creeps me out something fierce.

    I know, I saw that too. He either didn't review anything Jude posted, or he is so completely lost in Amir-land as to alter the reality his mind perceives in his favor. This is pathological behavior, I'm telling you...

    This was extremely perturbing to me. LOL, I even asked here on SBAF: did I read Jude's measurements wrong? @Torq had to reassure me that I wasn't going crazy. These are the kind of techniques used by clergy members or retarded uncles who abuse kids. Or kids who abuse other kids. Seriously.

    ... I deal with enough weird stuff in school, I'm bowing out of this because it really seems to me that that man needs a licensed therapist and I'm not there yet.

    Still looking forward to those burst response measurements though! :p /abruptsegue

    Yeah, those were burst responses were previews based on quick proof-of-concept code. It takes 20 times more effort to make the code "production" ready. So you might have to wait.

    No rush at all! Just a request from some random dude who's trying to see how they correlate with subjective shiz. 20x more effort is a massive pain in the butt, so feel free to drop it if IRL stuff gets too heavy, just pick it back up if and when it suits your fancy :)))

    I mean, the responsible thing to do would be for me to learn how to make code like that so... fml. LOL

    nwavguy's English is way better. Is very clear that English is a second language to Amir.

    nwavguy seemed kind of younger and more immature. Amir seems like a much older dude, albeit with an agenda.

    I still say nwavguy = Archimago.

    Evidence to support this is his insatiable appetite for the objective measurable differences, even if it is preference tests. He also has a fast resistance to anything resembling subjectiveness and "snake oil." His measurement screenshots look exactly the same. His writing style is spot on about the same. He uses Blogger (now Google, but same blog client). He is the Northwest part of North America. He is in an unrelated field ( looks like he is a medical doctor of some kind). And lastly there is the other circumstantial evidence of Archimago staying out of other forums and only posting on his site - meaning, if I were nwavguy and just went through all of that, I would rethink what is the point and just focus on my own "musings". And lastly, the last blog post by nwavguy was in May 2012 - first post by Archimago is May 2012.

    I rest my case.

    And the equally disturbing part? No one called Amir on it on HF! No one posted "Umm, Amir, did you not see that Jude did do SE measurements?" It's just so distressing what HF has become. Do people just watch and throw popcorn on the stage without reading, interacting, and trying to understand?
