    The only one that surprises me is Chefs


    CEO is the profession with the most psychopaths.
    But first off, psychopath doesn’t just mean someone who cuts you up with a chainsaw — though the majority of people who do things like that are psychopaths. What’s the definition?

    Psychopathy is a personality disorder that has been variously described as characterized by shallow emotions (in particular reduced fear), stress tolerance, lacking empathy, coldheartedness, lacking guilt, egocentricity, superficial character, manipulativeness, irresponsibility, impulsivity and antisocial behaviors such as parasitic lifestyleand criminality.

    So which professions (other than axe murderer) have the most psychopaths? What about the least?

    Would have guessed chef as number one. Worked in restaurants when i was younger and all the chefs were crazy, and highly addicted to cocaine.

    Fascinating:
    5. Surgeon (+ psychopath)
    9. Doctor (- psychopath)
    Difference? Surgeons deal with unconscious folk (who needs empathy if one operates well). doctors deal (usually) with the conscious, so empathy and capacity for connection are more paramount.

    3. Therapists? Usually. Not for Wiggy's shrink.

    yea media/tv is too vague

    talent and directors are 99% bat shit crazy

    line producers and EPs tend to 50/50

    crew for the most part are just blue color schmoes

    Pretty spot on
    You just do. They're the boss.
    Every once in a long while a fed up transo captain or someone will get crazy on a director

    I imagine having the power to control other people eventually turns one into quite the sociopath.

    It was. The guy was a total dildo. He was from Spain, and kind of a pig. Especially to women.
    anyway he was generally not liked by the crew. He was screaming one day about things taking too long. (There were safety issues) and the captain grabbed him by the shirt and told him to go sit in his trailer.
    It got weird

    Is that why a chef will spit in your food if you send it back?

    Is "whackpackery" a profession? By the looks of the people who choose it as a job I would say it doesn't pat much, if anything. However, the psychopathy has to be off the charts.
