Personal Critic

A person whose sole job is too critique you on every aspect of your life; in the form of a detailed report (you would get to choose the level of detail). Unlike a wife or girlfriend, they would have no emotional attachment to you; and unlike a shrink they would not make their judgments filtered trough your own recounting of events... rather they would either make personally observations of your life or alternately work from video documentation.

Imagine then getting feedback such as: "You were not strict enough when you reprimanded your co-worker" or "Do you always fold your socks when you put them away?" or "That tip you left that waitress was pathetically small, and embarrassed your date"

[Curious side note: Given the amount of effort this would take on their part; effectively your life would become theirs. However such things have been documented in the lives of Maids & Butlers]

       Do they ever compliment you? or just complain when necessary?

       What makes you think that wives or girlfriends have any "emotional attachment" to you, rather than to, for instance, your wallet ?

So I've heard. Perhaps you should be a bit more restrained?

       Do you pay this person?

       There is a commedian who does a bit that he wants to hire someone in a top hat and tails just to follow him around and state "wrong" when he is about to do something stupid.   

       "I don't need a condom this time..." "Wrong!"
