I think he is a decent guy. He was always hilarious to be around. The people in Hobart that he grew up with could not believe it when he made GB, because that thought he was not serious enough. He is also intelligent, being the first person to publish a Tuvaluan dictionary.
When he claimed to be anointed, at about 40, it seemed very strange to everyone. I guess I am now biased, but it seems to have been a strategic move to get onto the GB. He had already been on branch committees, and the only way up the corporate ladder was getting anointed.
I would love to ask him if he really believes what he preaches, though he would never truthfully answer. As with anyone raised a JW, he may have underlying doubts, but convinces himself it is true, and when he gives a talk he really knows how to "sell" the truth. He is not like Anthony Morris, his talks are motivational and great to listen to.
