I'm not sure taht I get what you mean by an "intellectual crush". Sure, if I meet someone intelligent who makes a lot of sense and is willing to sit down, talk and share thoughts I'm all for it. I like such meetings, they are interesting. However for me its really about the information, the substance of what we are talking about and not about the man/woman behind the info. Intelligent people are usually better than books (in the sense that they can reply to your questions in real time and are overall more interactive) but as far as emotional attachment goes, people and books are just vessels of information.

If no one can make me feel EMPATHY, maybe a person who has the similar condition can understand where I'm coming from. Maybe a sociopath can empathize with a sociopath. What do you think?
I can perfectly understand what you mean. There were times where I didn't feel a thing for someone, but lied because I knew it wouldn't work if they knew how I felt. The fact that I understand
(from personal experience no less) how it is doesn't mean I will empathize with you in the sense that I would want to give you a hug or a pat on the back (not to mention anything more).
I will understand, shrug and go my own way. Like I wrote before, why should one psychopath bother with another psychopath? Normies are less fuss.
