One In 25 Business Leaders May Be A Psychopath, Study Finds

Recommended Posts

http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2011/sep/01/psychopath-workplace-jobs-study

One out of every 25 business leaders could be psychopathic, a study claims.

The study, conducted by the New York psychologist Paul Babiak, suggests that they disguise the condition by hiding behind their high status, playing up their charm and by manipulating others.

.....

"Part of the problem is that the very things we're looking for in our leaders, the psychopath can easily mimic.

"Their natural tendency is to be charming. Take that charm and couch it in the right business language and it sounds like charismatic leadership."

I wonder what the results would be if they got to test our politicians.

I disagree with this. I suspect a great many are sociopaths.

A sociopath will want to put an axe in your head but lack the conviction to do so, a pysychopath will just do it.

Sociopaths such as narcissist personalities are, IMPO, very common.

It says in your quote that psychopaths mimic certain behaviours. Actually those behaviours are how they behave. The prince is a good starting point if you are not a psychopath and want to learn to behave like one.
