to be fair a lot of boomers don't understand autism. They might not really know how autistic he is. He does lack a lot of characteristics of autistic people I know tho such as strong research abilities. empathy etc.
He’s a new breed of autism, the pigtism it’s very anti-social and lives for others to give him money for basically nothing.

I personally don't think Phil has any form of Autism.
What I do think is that Phil wasn't raised like most people were.
Social behavior is not something we are born with, it it something we learn as young children from our parent's and family.
As children when we are out in public we see how our family treats and interacts with other members of society and we learn and mimic that behavior.
It's pretty obvious Phil was raised on a Pedestal always being told " you did nothing wrong Phil, you did everything correct" even when he was in the wrong.
When you are raised like this you often believe you are somehow superior to the person standing next to you, in which case you have no reason to interact with them because they are "beneath" you. Phil either had a nanny growing up or was waited on hand and foot by his parent's.. people like this have poor life skills. a few examples: washing clothes, washing dishes, basic chores around the house. Which explains why Phil loves to live in places where the basic of basic things are done for him ( light bulbs changed, lawn mowed, etc,) and why he always needed a soulmaid to cook, clean and wash his clothes.

Growing up everything was taken care of for Phil ,everyone did for him now years later as a grown man he still expects things to be done for him.
Example: Phil bought a Car and hasn't changed the oil in years... he believes the dealership 3000 miles away should call him and tell him when the oil needs to be changed.

At the end of the day we all laugh at Phil and the stuff he says and does, as much as we want to blame Phil, the blame solely rest on his Parent's for rasing him like this and not teaching him acceptable people, social and life skills.

I was with you up until this last bit. It's understandable to blame the parents... if DSP was a teenager, hell, you could argue that up till he was out of college. What would that be, age 22-23? DSP is in his mid-thirties and still exhibiting these tendencies. I agree you can point fingers at his parents for his attitude, but at some point the blame shifts from them to Phil himself.

Most people grow up once they are out on their own in the first year or two, but as you can see Phil didn't. I argue his youtube "career" is technically more to blame for giving him easy cash with little to no effort.

Are we really going to get into a Sam Harris type of argument of "does free will exist?" over Phil? Even if he is a victim of circunstance and his biology he is still an narcissistic,compulsive liar,manchild that deserves to be mocked.

I will always have suspicions that Phil is a special needs person. Maybe his parents pampered him and didn't tell him about his exceptionalism, but I refuse to believe he is a healthy person. I've never seen someone know so little about the world and the basics of looking after yourself but act like a snowflake in every situation

Phil is not exceptional nor is he highly autistic. He is lazy and selfish with an ego and a sense of entitlement unlike anything I’ve come across. He is a spoiled, bratty child in an aged body. I agree that there is plenty of blame to be put on his parents. Phil is beyond help. Phil is now middle aged and is now set into his ways like concrete. I’ve not seen or heard any mention about this “10 year plan” since he got back from CT. Anyone hoping Phillip will turn over a new leaf and begin to correct course in his life is waiting in vain. He is a lost cause. I have zero empathy for Kat in all this as well. I would argue that if she had put herself out there more on the internet, she would undoubtably have her own thread here on the farms.


Case in point, who says this?

I don't think he ever gained a full measure of independence from his parents. Even when he was living on his own in Connecticut, he would still bring his dirty laundry back to his parents for his mother to wash on the weekends. And of course, to this day, even in Renton he is reliant on his parents to fly out to clean up his garage, weed his yard, paint his office, and bail him out of tax troubles. He claims that he still talks to his parents for like an hour on the phone every week, presumably relating everything that happened to him over the past seven days in order to get their feedback and approval. Very dependent relationship.

I have a theory on why Phil is the way he is. So put your tinfoil hats on and activate your almonds because this is one detailed theory. So here it is:
My theory is that Phil has sort of a multiple personality issue in which his current personality was created to hide his weak personality. When he talked about his past as a kid, it sounded like he was a pushover, a weird introvert, had mental issues, and a cuck. So, first off he stated that he stalked a girl back in high school because he was "obsessed" with her, which is definitely a sign of mental issues or a really awkward kid that never had real friends or a female interaction. He also explains how he took a "cocktail of medications" back in high school that made him do weird things like the stalking. Now if he was taking a "cocktail of medications" then that means Phil must have had some mental issues or was on the spectrum, therefore Phil is hiding something about his health.

Next, Phil is a clear case of being a spoiled only child based on his bs wolverine story, his story about his mom buying an N64, and how he saw his full-grown parents as morons and he, a 10-year-old child, was a freaking prodigy. Which makes me think when he went to school, he pushed his "I am always right because my parents said I was the best" spoiled mentality but the other kids, being kids, laughed at him and picked on him for being a goober. After years of being bullied, he broke down to an introvert with little to no friends. Once he entered middle school, he was a broken child who couldn’t handle human interaction. That is why when the hot Latina grinded up on him, he freaked out when the boyfriend wanted to kick his ass. But I think something did happen and he got his ass kicked or the Latina was pulling a "schmucks for dinner" situation and grinded on him to see his autistic reaction while her friends laughed.

Either way, when he got to high school, he broke down even further and became mentally unstable, that is when his parents put him on a "cocktail of medications" to calm the unstable high school Phil. He probably broke down further when he got cucked by that girl at that prom/homecoming when she went with him but left him for another guy when they got to the dance. So, knowing he could not have friends he just focused on his studies hoping people would like him if he was smart and thus was just booked smart. He then became valedictorian at a school that probably had kids who didn't care about grades, basically, he was the smartest turd in a giant pile of shit.

Once, he went to college he started to stabilize a bit and realize he might need to change from being a loser to a chad. So, Phil started "working out" thinking that if he was buff he could be a chad because clearly being book smart didn't help. However, book smart Phil didn't know how to work out properly and never saw any large gains but maybe lost some weight and instead of lifting 5 pounds he now lifted 15 pounds which in his weak ego-mind was him being buff.
(Quick Note: His idea of muscle memory is completely wrong. Phil thinks muscle memory (MM) is that if you worked out and then stop working out for 10 years that you keep some of that muscle. No, if you stop working out for 10 years your muscle will shrink to the point of being average or in the case of Phil below average. The real definition of MM is when you work out properly your muscle motor skills retain the pattern of lifting weights, so if you stop working out then work out again your muscles will remember the motor skill to lift the weight properly thus boosting your muscle gain because you are doing the movements properly. In some cases, in which you stop working out for only a few weeks, you can bounce back to your previous max weight lift quicker because your body retains that memory that it liked working out. But if you stop working out for 10 years you are not going to have that quick gain, he might remember the lift technique but since his muscles are weak as fuck and the gap for his muscles to remember the feel of working out is so vast that essentially it will be like if he started working out for the first time and take forever to get gains.
TL; DR Phil was never buff and knows nothing about working out or the definitions for any of the words in the weight lifting community. Source: Took exercise physiology classes and have been weight lifting since I was 15 years old.)

So, in the real world, Phil was a socially/mentally unstable awkward person and no matter how much he studied and worked out improperly, he was not liked by other normal humans. But he realized the only place he could be a "chad" was at the arcade because clearly, Phil was that kid that played alone in his room with all the vidya games his parents bought him. So when he went to his first arcade he probably saw some normal kids playing street fighter, but since he did nothing but play games he was above average than most at the arcade and won matches. This gave birth to "chad" Phil who thought he was hot shit because he beat some average kids in street fighter, thus his fondness and obsession of loving street fighter. When he started to do tournaments, "chad" Phil realized he wasn't the best as there were other kids as good or better than his ass. But "chad" Phil couldn't let his high of "being the best" die, so he started to act like a dick to show "dominance". Over time, he was probably mocked and laughed at for trying to be a cool guy that was good at fighting games, thus he took that hate and decided to embrace this negativity, thus embracing his dark side. I know Phil likes to mention that story on why he named himself DarkSydePhil but I think he called himself that to show that he wasn't a pushover and that people should fear the dark side of himself. Therefore, he created DarkSydePhil to shield himself from the cruel world that bullied him for so many years. Of course, Phil probably knew that DSP would only work in the FGC and not the real world, thus why IRL he was still a loser. You can see this when he created that troll website talking shit about the FGC because on that website it was all about the FGC so that persona fit well in it. But when he was confronted in real-life situations, like when that street fighter player (I think Viscant or whatever that guy was named) accepted his IRL fight, Phil freaked out thinking that the DSP persona would be useful in that situation. But, it just showed that the DSP persona had flaws because Phils real pussy self still came out the cracks when the situation involved his real physical body to be in danger. That is why he tried to weasel out the fight by telling the guy to sign paperwork and faking the fight to be a draw, but the other player being a real human laughed at him and told him to fuck off with his bs excuse.

When he started to upload videos to YouTube, he used his DSP persona because that was the most confident version of himself, and since it was the internet he could be Mr. Badass without actually physically confronting a person. When his channel boomed, Phil thought that this DSP persona was beloved by many and that is what people wanted so he kept up his DSP persona. When people asked him if his DSP persona was fake, Phil freaked out because he didn’t want his fans to know his real pussy self, so he lied and told everyone that DSP was his real self and that he is a badass that takes no shit. (Quick Note: Recently Phil has stated that his old YouTube self was a fake version of himself that exaggerated things, even though for years he stated that his YouTube self is how he really is in real life. This supports my theory that the DSP persona was a shield.)

At this point Phil realized that his DSP persona was attracting girls, thus he lured in PandaLee with that persona. Well, it worked and he had a freshly new 18-year-old girl by his side all because of his DSP persona. Now most YouTubers would have kept their GF/BF a secret because it was no one’s business to know who they are as they don’t want their significant others to be bothered by online people. But not Phil, he had to show the world his new 18-year-old GF because his real pussy self-needed this win, basically to give a weak middle finger to the world that he wasn’t a loser and that he can get pussy. Instead, everyone hated her and trolled her ass, which then Phil blamed the trolls and his fans for not understanding why he had to reveal his GF. Well the second GF he got, Phil finally learned from his first GF reveal...nope, he revealed her knowing very well the consequences. This time though Phil tried to hide his GF but when the escort saga started and when people were saying he didn’t have a GF, of course, real-life pussy Phil couldn’t handle the ridicule from children/teenagers and thus caved in under pressure and revealed his GF. Even to the point of challenging the internet/kiwifarms (never challenge the internet/kiwifarms, it’s always a losing bet) that they can’t dox her.

When people watched Phil back in the day (including myself) we thought his personality in the videos was an act, but when he started to say it wasn’t an act then that is when people were slowly turning on him. See people only like assholes when they know its an act, like AVGN, Francis, DrDisrespect, AngryJoe, and so on. This is because in real life they are normal people that respect their fans and aren’t psychopaths (Boogie has fallen but back in the day people liked him as a person, now he just sucks as a human). So those youtubers/streamers can retain the audience because their fans know that their online personas are just for entertainment purposes only. Phil on the other hand embraced his DSP persona 24/7 because he thought people liked an asshole all the time even during Q&As, meet-ups, and moderating his videos. However, that pushed away people because no one likes an actor that is an actual villain, thus normal people couldn’t relate to DSP since that guy was just an asshat. This led to his channel to slowly die, detractors to be born, kiwifarms talking about him, and the illegal restreams. I guarantee you if Phil would have said his DSP persona was just an act and was genuinely nice to people, he wouldn’t have the issues he has today. The only reason Phil kept saying his DSP persona was his real self was that it made him feel better about himself since deep down he is a shell of a man who can’t handle the real world.

You can see this weak version of Phil come out through the cracks of his DSP mask when trolls push his buttons. For instance, the balding comments get him all the time, to the point he makes retarded excuses like it was his moms’ fault for combing it that way or that his headphones are parting his hair (which some nice people on this site proved to be bs as headphones don’t do that). Also, when people mention his glasses, he states he doesn’t need them and it's only for driving, its like he is ashamed to wear them. I bet he hates those glasses because when he got them in high school he got furthered laughed at and by that time Phil was already broken so he stopped wearing them because he didn’t want to get bullied more. This is further supported when Rambo mentions that a cop told him why he wasn’t wearing his glasses when driving, clearly Phil was embarrassed to wear them even though Rambo himself wore glasses so why be ashamed if your friend wears them too. Simple answer, Phil avoids anything that makes him more of a loser. We can also see his pussy self come out when trolls talk about his wife, family, his finances, his weight, his proficiency in vidya games, and so on.

In conclusion, Phil is a broken man who gave birth to the DSP persona to shield himself from the real world. Unfortunately, his weak pussy real self still shows through those cracks on his DSP mask which can be seen from his alcoholism, constant lying, insulting, wanting validation of his successes like his 10-year shit playing online, gluttony, greed, begging for pity, and acceptance from the world that doesn’t want him.

Nigga... I mean, I like to ponder and argue about DSP but this is just a straight up dissertation about the psychological state of Dave when all that needs to be said is that he's just a fat, average asshole. Nothing more, nothing less. He's a fucking social recluse and he's scared of people.

Something that ocurred to me regarding as too why never admits that he is wrong no matter the evidence or arguments presented against him is that he cant be conviced by reality because he never based his conception of himself or his actions in reality in the first place.

Phil is a delusional man to the point where he just projects whatever characteristics he perceives as positive into himself regardless if they make sense or not.For example if Phil thinks being a hard worker is a good thing he will talk about how he works 12 hours a day even though everyone can see thats not true,and if you tell him he is lying he just formulates a response that makes no sense,blocks you and moves on to the next lie.

I think deep down at a subconcious level Phil realizes that he is a failure in every possible dimension: He has the body of a grandma with skinny extremities and a fat torso,he only attracts women because he provides financially for them and was an incel until he meet Leanna,he is the joke of the internet,no one respects him and he gets trolled by everyone(even his own fans),he is declaring bankrupcy and therefore is extremly irresponsable,he is a mobile game addict,he is shit at absoluty everything he does,he got fired from every job he had even when his father had a position of power in one them,in one video he talked about how everyone at his job disliked him and everyone at the FGC disliked him too so I dont think its a stretch that everyone hates Phil when they have contact with him,he is an inmature manchild that collects toys,laughs at waterfalls in games,has extremly thin skin and overall has the emotinal maturity of a 14 year old,he cant even care for himself to the point where when Leanna left him he was complaining about having to cook and got even fatter because he ate like crap.

You get the point,Phil is a failure at everything he does,and because reality proves this he doesnt base his conception of self on reality,therefore he just creates a new reality in which he reestructured the helicopter company but got fired afterwards for no reason,where he was a bodybuilder instead of a fatty with skinny limbs,where TIHYDPs are out of context slander instead of his content being terrible,etc.

There is no point in using reality when talking to Phil since he does not base his conception of self on reality,he just creates his own reality where he is amazing and nothing is ever his fault because the real world would remind him that he is a colosal failure. I think deep down he wants to be succesful,but he is too much of a lazy manchild to do it.

You get the point,Phil is a failure at everything he does,and because reality proves this he doesnt base his conception of self on reality,therefore he just creates a new reality in which he reestructured the helicopter company but got fired afterwards for no reason,where he was a bodybuilder instead of a fatty with skinny limbs,where TIHYDPs are out of context slander instead of his content being terrible,etc.

There is no point in using reality when talking to Phil since he does not base his conception of self on reality,he just creates his own reality where he is amazing and nothing is ever his fault because the real world would remind him that he is a colosal failure. I think deep down he wants to be succesful,but he is too much of a lazy manchild to do it.
Basically this sums it up

Phil is just a man so desperate for approval that he likes to make up grand made-up stories about anything as small as rewriting his whole life to not make himself seem like not a total loser.

These delusions that he was some sort of pioneer of youtube playthroughs because it gives him some sense of purpose. He loves to say he has a family, a wife and a pet son because that boat has long been gone to have any sort of kin like a normal person. Loved to say he was a body builder and not a sack of potatoes as he is now, along with being such a hard worker at his "jahb" that makes him sit around on his ass for hours.

His narcissism is what is trying to keep him have any sort of value by in his own mind while also trying to put up an illusion that everything you see is reality. That 4th place at EVO is a win to him, and it should be to you, even though Gold, Silver, Bronze is usually what makes the cut of any sort of accomplishment, Those 11 years of being a content creator is a big milestone to him and should not be seen as pathetic to anyone else.

Phil's reputation has been so tarnished that he is pretty desperate for that to go away, like his debts. Check his Minecraft streams and each time the story changes on why people do not like him. He want's to say he has matured, even past 30 when most people are set in stone with their ways and it's incredibly difficult to get any change out of that when you have to actually want it, but this is Phil and he's never put effort into anything aside from Mobile games, Street Fighter, and defending himself.

As I wrote in the other thread, I think Phil's lies have led to him only being comfortable communicating online in situations where he's in total control of the conversation. He needs to be able to block and ban anyone who challenges his bullshit version of life. It clearly hasn't been good for him mentally. Old John Rambo era DSP might have been an asshole, but he wasn't a paranoid shut-in. Now he seems unable to have a normal interaction without lying, cursing, ranting and blocking anyone who disagrees with him.

DSP might not be lying about his depression you guys! (Even though this is still all on him).

A nice positive read about why pushing forward pahsitively with a pahsitive mindset might not be the best thing for you, and might actually hinder you're ability to push forward pahsitively in the long run.

Tl;Dr people all about being positive might be lazy fucks who feel good in the moment but do fuck all, thus feeling lazy and apathetic in the future, causing them to continue to be depressed and put in low effort to improve

Watching the clips linked on here, I am beginning to see just how parasitic the relationship between Phil and the audience is, and that it works both ways.

The fact that he was able to yet again meet his goal is both saddening and appalling. He is taking advantage of people, in a financially abusive way. His behavior is something people in the field of elderly care have been trained to spot: A new excuse each time. Large lump sums. Only shows up when money is needed. If his audience were 60+ it could easily be considered abuse and a crime. I suppose if you could prove that it is youths under the age spending their parents or their own money, it might be seen that way in a certain light. There are laws against abusing a child financially, made popular when 'child stars' became a thing due to the rampant abuse by the people in positions of trust/friendship squandering the money the child made.

I saw a scene once when I was doing medical homecare of the disabled and seniors that, in my mind, perfectly represents the situation here:
A vulnerable person who, for any number of reasons, was mostly a recluse in their older years, and I get it. You're in the December of your life, your partner is gone, your friends have all passed, the kids have grown and have their own lives and children. This sweet person had a son that, you know, his life didn't pan out typically, a mixture of his fault and... I dunno. Chance? God? Anyway, the scene goes like this:
"Hey (parent), I am in a bad place lately and I could really use some money." Once the money was pulled out; "Actually, I need a bit more." And then to put the icing on the cake: "actually just give me whatever you have." Sadly, they did, because that's their relationship, they value or carevfor him, despite his failures, and wants to help, perhaps not realizing that giving till it hurts solves nothing for anyone, and sets him in a position to not learn a valuable and expensive lesson that a lot of people usually learn at some point in their adulthood. If you've had to space out your meals of 99 cent instant noodles over days rather than whenever you're hungry, you tend to learn the value of money. I see this relationship in between Phil and his viewers. Having looked through the thread with his fans information, a pattern forms. These are outsiders; people that are bullied, low self esteem, low self worth, inability to function socially, and sadly, the widower. All vulnerable people. They all see something worthwhile in Phil that relates to them. What that is I can only guess at, the aggressive demeanor, the (apparent, but obviously doesn't) ability to stick up for himself, the hope that if someone like him can find love, maybe they can, too. Or just straight up heartbreaking loneliness. They feel like Phil is a very real, very reliable friend. They aren't there for the game play, play throughs are available in the literal thousands on multiple platforms, they choose Phil. I suspect that at this point he could transfer into an IRL or 'just chatting' streamer. It might even come off as a little more honest, instead of being a miserable cunt playing games badly (on purpose, I think, rare is the person that can do the same thing repeatedly every day and get progressively worse) he could just make his camera the big screen and his gaming the little box in the corner.

I'm sorry I always make such dramatic, long winded posts. I've taken a lot of psych (though I am no psychiatrist) and it's so rare to see such raw mental illness on display. It's fascinating and disgusting at the same time. Phil presents with so many symptoms of so many disorders, and yet is still high functioning. Little self awareness, little awareness of his environment, entitlement, abuse of power in several forms, straight up abuse, apparent lack of ability to learn (he stumbled dick first into his YouTube career and the only major upgrade I could ever find out about is that he switched from pointing a camera at a screen to direct capture), low/no impulse control, low/moderate ability to filter himself (he's shown he can be polite in conversation and not make animal noises repeatedly), obsession with how people perceive him, skewed vision of reality, victimizing himself, blame shifting, awkward when approached in real life, an apparent inability to express gratitude (saying thank you when someone gives you something is something we drill into children, it feels very knee jerk reaction, I've never once felt like he actually appreciates what people do for him, I'm not saying he has to over the top emote, but most people feel excessive shame at having to ask for money, and euphoric relief when they get it if it was actually needed. People break down in tears when they're given large lump sums, I am not saying he should cry, but all he can muster is a quick side glance at his screen., a monotone, dead faced, "X has tipped $xxx. Thanks." I know there are limits to what you can do in the nature of this platform beyond expressing gratitude, (but Christ. Express some fucking gratitude.) Pathologic lying, I dont know for certain, but I would say it is at a point where he may not even realize he is doing it, it's so natural to him, like breathing. There is more for this list but I think I've made my point: this is not a stable man.

Jesus Christ. Sorry. Anyways, great marathon, right guys? The illness is self sustaining at this point. He's asked for so much over such a short amount of time, and he gets it without fail.

I don't wish him harm, he's not evil, but he is sick. He needs help, and to not be in a position where people can continue to shower him with money and positively reinforce abhorrent traits. I know many here are very wager for the upcoming hearing, I am too, I genuinely hope it will be more than: is everything on this form true? Does anyone here take issue with this application? OK, here is your court date. Next in line please.

Your post contains one of the most measured & intelligent speculative responses I've yet read as to the psychological/clinical underpinnings of this piece of shit. And I'm interested to know anything you've left out.

He has always struck a particular chord with me because he is an amazingly comprehensive composite of almost every characteristic that I revile in other people. Like to the point where I will permanently banish a person from my life if I detect any *one* of them ("dealbreakers" might be a good word for it), and he carries around like 4 out of 5 of them, all ramped up to eleven at all times. Kind of incredible to me. That's why I hatewatch him.

And if you're willing to elaborate, this: (The DSReeee Armchair Psychology Thread) is where you'd want to go. (I totally understand if you're not into it; Autism Abyss-staring & xyz...)

I don't wish him harm, he's not evil, but he is sick.

In an unconventional sense of the word, I do think he's evil, And if he had a broader radius of socialization in real life, I believe he would even be a dangerous liability to people. His threshold of discomfort is almost nonexistent, & his only allegiance is to himself. People like that may not axe-murder you, but they'll ruin your life without hesitation.

You don't think he's evil, & you've sold me on the fact that your opinion is based on an education/career background in abnormal psychology. So yes, I'm extremely interested in listening if you have more to say.

(Sorry for Berlinian textwall.)

My knowledge isn't special or unique, it's from a combination of university classes, boring textbooks that handhold you through the different maladaptive conditions that can manifest, and work experience. Anyone here is capable of it. If you are genuinely interested in the purely scientific aspects of illness, I would refer you to DSM-5. Be warned, it is 950 pages long, and is a very boring read. Pick a disorder that interests you and read through it. This is the doctor's manual for psychological disorders, lines of treatment, and even what they should charge for services rendered.

I will look at the thread mentioned, thank you, but I doubt I can add to what you guys have figured out already, I can just give you the fancy Latin names.

As I mentioned, he manifests a staggering number of red flags for a number of disorders. He appears to lack empathy, for example, he does not understand why other people feel the way they do. Example : aunt dies. You think: Jesus christ my aunt is dead, her husband and kids must be devastated. He thinks: Jesus christ that bitch died. Who the fuck is going to rent my unit to now, I was counting on that money. I don't have time for this shit. What a fucking bitch.

His world and understanding of emotional concepts begins with him and ends with him. People, to him (I suspect), are not people so much as they are variables, constructs that can contribute to him or harm him. They are to be utilized for gain, and when no longer a positive net gain, they are removed with prejudice. See: tapping his foot looking at the clock, waiting for his parents to die and those fuckers better have left everything to him.

Normal human relationships resemble a sine wave. They have peaks and troughs. Sometimes your friend is a dick and you tell him to fuck off, but you eventually have distance and can process the situation. He is still your friend, you still like him; he is human, we fuck up sometimes. Continue on as normal. You do not make him grovel and beg and shout apologies and expect monetary compensation for his actions. You text him and say what are you doing this weekend?

He does not appear to process emotions like an adjusted person does. Emotions are fluid and change and as you grow older and understand yourself, you understand these emotions and what they represent. For him, I would say they are more of, I guess I would say they are like a rubix cube. Every now and then, he matches up a line of colors and that feels good. Most of the time he's just spinning them in the hopes that they line up, but they don't and that is frustrating. See: his barely fluctuating perpetual fuck off mood. He can process frustration: this is not something he wants. It is a negative experience and therefore a threat and must be expunged. He can process rage: something is outside his immediate ability to control. This is unacceptable and must be violently excised. Cut it out. Get rid of it. Now. He cannot make something bend to his will, this cannot be understood; its doing things beyond what I want it to, unacceptable. Remove.

He requires control in his constructed reality. Lack of control is extremely distressing for even normal people. But for him, his world revolves around him. He controls the narrative, the setting, the pace, the tone. Anything but fawning questions or outright praise is seen as an attack. In his defense, years of perceived trolling will make a person paranoid. He could have dealt with this with self awareness, examination, willingness to adapt, and the ability to understand that he is the common denominator in all of these perpetually growing number of 'detractors'. See: a lack of growth as a person over the years, an inflexibility in persona, unwilling to try new experiences. The unknown is not controllable, avoid at all cost. See: religious adherence to an arbitrary schedule that is set in stone, even though the nature of the platform is he can stream at any point on any day. . He picks when and how he will entertain you, you either attend to him, or you are a detractor. The people that don't know who he is, and that he is a chill, fun, entertaining person may as well not exist. They offer no value to him, so why acknowledge something worthless? Waste of his time.
Persecution complex. If you're not helping him, you're hurting him and wasting his time. See: perpetual victim. Inability to recognize or acknowledge that perhaps his own actions put him in the sitations he finds himself in, and why they're almost always the same issue. Someone plotted this. He did everything right, not his fault (a meme, I know, but seems to genuinely believe it, and reinforces it often).
Inability to process love or affection if it is not him. See: a cold, loveless marriage where they spend the majority of their time apart, one party actively avoiding the other. This is picturesque love in his mind. He owns a house, a car, and a wife. The only time they spend time together is to spend money. When on the couch, silent, resentful watching of other youtubers. This is love. This is marriage. You envy what he has. See also: how he treats his cat. Jasper is a pain in the ass. He does things that animals do. Scratch things. Bite things. Want to play. Want affection. The one and only response he has is to actively punish him with the water bottle. If Jasper was a person, this is the equivalent of spitting in his face telling him to stop. This is paternal love in his eyes. The stuff he does for this cat.

I'm sorry, I sperged again. This is not the entirety of what I wanted to say, these are just the indicators of his illnesses and the video evidence of his actions, and put in a way to easily compare against the baseline of what the standards of maladaptive behavior are.

This is not all there is, there is more, sadly. There is still the compiling of primary issues and comorbidities, and requires a filing under the appropriate illness. This is an interesting way to spend an afternoon, literally dissecting a personality.

I may be weird.

Well you took the words out of my god damn fuckin' mouth. Pretty much said what I believe everyone here wanted to hear.

And you say there is more...?

Would you like to go on, possibly? It's very interesting to read.
