Just for clarification, I am not a profiler. I am merely someone fascinated with human behavior, particularly criminology, who also happens to have a brain saturated with tons of data on serial offenders, unsolved murders, serial killings both solved and unsolved, and data on the offenders themselves. I do have knowledge gained from years of education and degrees in psychology, but that does not make someone a profiler. I do, additionally, have real experience with sociopathic behaviors, but that does not make someone a profiler either. To be a profiler you have to have experience like John Douglas, Robert Ressler, Park Dietz, Candace Delong, Katherine Ramsland, etc. I do not have those years of experience. I study the behavior, the crimes, the profiling process, but that does not make me a profiler.
I heard a quote once that I can’t remember the origin of right now but truly applies:
“Don’t be humble, you really aren’t that great.”
I am not trying to be humble, because I am not that great LOL. But I do try to do what I can do to analyze cases with the lexicon and knowledge I do have. That has to count for something I think. At least I am trying to do something.
