This was great! I think you nailed the dialogue perfectly. Artemis is a difficult character to write, and writing an intelligent opponent for him to face is just as challenging. Well done.

I loved this! It was fascinating, and fun too.
Thank you for posting!

This is incredibly interesting - I like the mind games and analyses, it's kind of like reading a psychology textbook, except more interesting.
- also, I have discovered that I have psychopathic traits. Thanks for that. :P.

Nice fic, I'm kind of surprised to see this discussion come up. Things certainly seemed to go in a very Searle-like route. Not mentioning compatibilism is a pet peeve of mine, it's such an important perspective.

Quite possibly one of the most intelligent fanfiction, if not the absolute most intelligent, that I have ever had the pleasure of reading.

That . Thanks for the read.
"That is most certainly a problem for those around you, but nothing that can really be cured, per say."
It's "per se."

A bit different as stories go, I personally aren't into all the mental stuff but I did really like the idea. Artemis actually being sane and just liking to toy with people for fun is perfectly logical for his character. The best part is the fact that his character really was in character I think for the story, I didn't read all of it but from the chapters I read he seemed witty and sarcastic as always. Good story.
Take the Good Person Test, (fourth search result on Google for "Good Person Test").

Hmm, your writing is good, and the plot an interesting take on Artemis' "hobby". However, something that diminish the authenticity is the fact that Artemis' portrayal does not fit his incredible genius perfectly. The thing is, genius tend to think in unexpected ways. People like to be surprised, which is why the series is so popular. Artemis is also portrayed in the book as pretty much more than an expert (a genius) in any field he attempted, and the number of alibis he process, including psychology if I remember right. Hence, it is very unlikely that any of Dr. Bank's questions would stump Artemis and require him to take a week to answer. Artemis' answer also lacked a lot of the depth I would expect from him, not to mention I doubt if Bank's method would actually work on Artemis. The problem with trying to write fiction about genius and someone who can keep up with him is that either the author must be a genius and expert on the subject matter (quite unlikely, though you seem to know a bit about psychology), or they must craft the plot so that it showcase their brilliance. Yes, genius can fail, they can be tricked, but to maintain consistency they must always seem superior to those around them. I've spotted quite a few holes in answers Artemis gives, which really affected his characterization.

This is great. You write some banter and verbal sparring that is very well thought out and touch upon some subjects that are above what most fanfics do, and you do it well. It's kinda funny to see the determinism argument played out like that, because it's almost identical to the one I had with some friends once, and the rest is kinda fun.
You write a great Artemis, who seems in character, kinda cold but,if I read it right, somewhat in denial about how empathic he really is. There seems to be a little unreliable narrator here and that's also something rarely seen.
All in all, this is a cut above the rest, especially in this fandom, where most fics are frankly crap.
You have a grammar error or two in every chapter. The only one in chapter ten is:
"Banks sighed. "I'm not going to pretend that this isn't a bias opinion." Shouldn't it be "biased?"
