LIST: Careers That Attract the Most Psychopaths


According to a new study, 4.5% of the adult population are psychopaths. Researchers in Spain found that men are more likely to be psychopaths. Merriam-Webster defines a psychopath as "a mentally unstable person especially :a person having an egocentric and antisocial personality marked by a lack of remorse for one's actions, an absence of empathy for others, and often criminal tendencies."

They also discovered that psychopaths are most likely to be involved in the following careers:

  • company CEOs
  • lawyers
  • radio or television personalities
  • salespeople
  • surgeons
  • journalists
  • priests
  • police officers
  • chefs
  • civil servants

Ummm...we're not sure how to feel about this, considering what WE do for a living. LOL.
