    Yep... this describes me


    Although people tend to think of psychopaths as killers—indeed about 15-25% of people in prison are psychopaths—in fact many people with psychopathic tendencies are not criminals.
    Here are some of the traits of psychopaths:


    • Self-confident
    • Cold-hearted
    • Manipulative
    • Fearless
    • Charming
    • Cool under pressure
    • Egocentric
    • Carefree

    Which Professions Have The Most Psychopaths?


    Are there ‘successful psychopaths’ amongst us?

    According to a survey conducted by psychologist Kevin Dutton—called the Great British Psychopath Survey—here are the top 10 professions with the most psychopaths:

    1. CEO
    2. Lawyer
    3. Media (TV/Radio)
    4. Salesperson
    5. Surgeon
    6. Journalist
    7. Police Officer
    8. Clergyperson
    9. Chef
    10. Civil Servant


    And here are the professions with the least psychopaths:



    1. Care Aide
    2. Nurse
    3. Therapist
    4. Craftsperson
    5. Beautician/Stylist
    6. Charity Worker
    7. Teacher
    8. Creative Artist
    9. Doctor
    10. Accountant




    If you look through the list of professions, then you can see how a few of these traits might be useful.
    None of this means that every CEO or lawyer is a psychopath, nor should the suggestion be that having psychopathic tendencies is helpful in any of these jobs (although it may be!).
    Rather, there is an overlap between psychopathic personality traits and the types of people who go into those professions.


    Successful psychopath?


    A few people try to talk up the benefits of psychopathic personality traits, saying that there are such things as ‘successful psychopaths’: people who benefit from being that way.
