"And what do you expect me to do, Laila? I'm doing the best I can! I never thought my woman would work so hard to hold me back. You don't understand what I need."
Malcolm Khalid is trying his best to become the next Tourè. He wants a writing career that will have him touring the US for speaking engagements and being featured in his own New York Times column. And he’ll do whatever he can to achieve that, including using his romantic relationships to get his connections.
When Malcolm becomes stressed, and the people around him don't comply with his needs, things can get a little tough. He has a problem empathizing and understanding the needs of others, so conflict is inevitable. Often he meets conflict with rigid unwillingness to change and an inability to see any perspective other than his own.
Sometimes, he can’t pay attention to what others are saying and has a habit of walking away in the middle of a conversation, or lapsing off to watch T.V. while someone was talking to him. At parties, he projects his own thoughts, but never asked questions of others. As a result there’s no give and take.
Malcolm isn’t always a jerk in public. In fact, when he first walked into Psyche headquarters everyone thought he had a meek and likeable public persona. Later, this made it very difficult for Laila to explain to her family about how self-centered he really was. In fact, the duplicity became so extreme that she began to question her own sanity.
