Hmmm ...Interesting survey...Although I would say the profession with the most psychopaths is Psychiatry.

Whether the people in these professions can truly be considered psychopaths would depend on whether they wore the traits of a Psychopath all the time, or just at work.

When at work people are often required to " Play their Position/Part " ...I call this a "FalseFace".
At work a Boss/Leader could seem like a ****(DIK)...a Psychopath...Yet at home, or outside of work, they are more than likely a pretty "Normal"/Good/Caring person.

So I wonder if Kevin Dutton looked at the requirements necessary to be successful in these professions.Or, studied the actual people in these professions, individually?


No matter the Profession...I think we could all do with Fewer "Psychopathic","False Faces"

Not all psychopaths are necessarily murdering lunatics, but most murdering lunatics are psychopaths. Psychopaths gravitate to positions of leadership, particularly CEOs and politicians. They are good at mimicking emotion but incapable of feeling any. They are highly cherished in banking and most capitalistic endeavors.

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!).

I am, and it is.

Most lawyers are nonviolent psychopaths who are able to dissemble their condition.

I was initially surprised to see clergy so high on the list, or on the list at all, but on second thought, considering the nature of the BS they're charged with promoting...

Not surprising to me as I think they have to be either gullible or manipulative!

exactly!!

Psychopathic tendencies most definitely do lead to success in many positions. If one is all about profit at the expense of the little guy one can not be going home all mopey at night because they just cut 500 jobs or screwed Sam over to jump ahead of Sam.

Also it explains why the kids of many of the super wealthy do not do well themselves. They have been raised in non-nurturing homes. It is the one thing they may well have in common with those who live in abject poverty and squalor due to drug addiction. The emotional investment in the children is the same, zero.

Phelps would be a good start...Benny Hinn...those guys would take the last penny from a pauper and feel justified
