    Developing a BRACE Character Profile of Renata Antoinette Monet

    Developing a BRACE Character Profile of Renata Antoinette Monet

    Based on a suggestion from OneLostGirl, several participants in the Transgendered Person Slays Pastor, Satanic Manifesto Found thread in the Crimes in the news section expressed an interest in developing a BRACE Character Profile of Renata Antoinette Monet, formerly Bobby Allan LaíLoge. Over the next few weeks, several threads will be started in the Jury Room to develop the input ratings for the profile. Once developed, the 75 input ratings will be entered into a spreadsheet which will automatically generate various graphics and charts to be used for an analysis of Renata Antoinette Monetís cognitive-behavioral-existential/motivational functioning Ė a BRACE Character Profile psychological autopsy.

    Participants in this rating process are encouraged to read the posts in the Transgendered Person Slays Pastor, Satanic Manifesto Found thread (Crimes in the news) and the news articles and websites mentioned. Of course, anyone with firsthand knowledge of Renata Antoinette Monet is encouraged to post regardless of what articles and posts they have read.

    NOTE: You do not have to post input ratings in order to comment on or discuss the rating items or Renata Antoinette Monetís related characteristics. Some items will be very easy to rate, others will be very difficult. Over the course of the rating process, you may change your mind several times as you gain new information and discuss the items. You will have an opportunity to post your final set of input ratings at the conclusion of the rating process. If you do not wish to publicly post your ratings, PM your final ratings to me. I will subsequently establish a final consensus set of input ratings -- somebody has to be the parser.

    Feel free to work with one or more other individuals in developing your set of input ratings. The key to a valid set of ratings is a rich knowledge base, good critical thinking skills, and strict adherence to the rating procedures. The more you share about the basis of your ratings and the nature of your knowledge base, the easier it will be for me to weight the value of your input. However, such information is not necessary for participation.

    For additional information about the rating procedures, www.bracecharacterprofile.com is designed so you can practice by rating Hannibal Lecter. Also, there are free downloads available related to the BRACE Character Profile (http://www.braceanalysis.com/profile.html ), including the BRACE Character Profile Manual and the program for generating the graphics and charts for an analysis. Those who participate in rating Renata Antoinette Monet will learn how to rate other "people of interest" to them.

    All of my posts in these threads are my personal opinions, which are subject to change with new information.

    Thank you for the invitation OneLostGirl,
    Russell

    I don't think so, but I'm open to suggestion.

    Had a busier weekend that I planned, so I did not get to do too much with this yet. I AM interested in taking part, and will watch for a decision on how we are going to proceed.

    I did go through this, and found it interesting. I was wondering, as I did, whether the profile is based on the movie character as portrayed by Anthony Hopkins, the books themselves, or a combination of the two. I have seen all the movies, but only once each except for SotLambs. On the other hand, I've read the novels several times each. My answers seemed to vary from the established profile here and there, and I wondered if this might be why.

    The character Hannibal Lecter as portrayed by Anthony Hopkins in the movie Silence of the Lambs (1991) is the basis for the practice ratings of the BRACE Character Profile. There would be definite differences among the characters presented in related movies and books. However, do not be surprised to find quite a few differences between raters, most of which will resolve over the course of discussing the items and the rationales for the ratings.

    Upon further consideration, I think it might be beneficial to have this BRACE Character Profile psychological autopsy in a separate section so that the related threads remain together. I have been tinkering around with developing profiles through public forums for several years now. So far, I have not discovered any simple way to coordinate the input from a large number of people. However, the current profiling exercise does give a large number of people an opportunity to learn about this profiling technique. Some WS members are likely to gain enough knowledge to apply this rating and analysis technique to their own cases or persons of interest. Over time, WS may develop several amateur and professional BRACE Character Profilers.

    Additionally, I am sure that WS has quite a few academically inclined members who might be interested in developing this current project into a professional peer-reviewed publication. In my opinion, it would be an excellent topic for a graduate thesis or dissertation. In any case, interested parties could contact you or Admin for approval. I am already available for consultation.

    My original thinking about developing a BRACE Character Profile of Renata Antoinette Monet was to have a total of five threads for developing a consensus set of input ratings: an introduction/discussion thread, items 1-25discussion thread, items 26-50 discussion thread, items 51-75 discussion thread, and a concluding thread for the consensus set of ratings and related discussion. The first two of these threads are currently in the Crimes in the News section. This is a very active section and I think the profiling threads will get lost in the daily shuffle. Would it be possible to start a new case in the Featured Case Discussion section, with the five primary threads mentioned above being fixed in sequence at the top as they are added? I think this would make it a lot easier for people to follow and participate.

    Hi, I just ran across this thread. I had wondered if anything was underway regarding this exercise (been under the weather this month). I'm familiar with the subject thread - where do I go first in order to participate?

    Can posters who are interested in participating connect this exercise to the original thread with the title ~ Transgendered Person .....

    His/her name does not appear in the title of the original thread. It may be difficult for interested persons to connnect the two in order to read the thread to become familiar with the case.

    Is this the introduction/discussion thread? I went downstairs where the thread is on page 5 (I think), clicked it and I'm back up here. I propose that the top of the introduction thread provides a link to the case thread. That would solve the problem of people who read about the BRACE exercise and are interested but don't know where to find the subject thread.

    After that, when it's time to move on to the next thread, a link can be provided as I'm assuming people may be at different stages in the process at different times.

    JBean, does this make sense?

    Another question that came to mind, will there be a timeframe for completing this exercise - within the month of April? or, longer? How many participants are needed to make it valid - only one? more? does it matter?
