The Postol Syndrome

(The) Postol Syndrome: The phenomenon whereby highly smart people believe, say and do terribly stupid things. Scientists have found a number of causes for it, including: early onset megalomania, late stage assholery, being the victim of a kompromat, and eating one’s own excrement believing that it would taste like chocolate on account of how special one happens to be in one’s own mind. Naturally, scientists see a close link between the first and last cause. The Syndrome was named after an MIT professor who was the first subject of the study that identified the phenomenon as representing its own unique mental disorder.
