In some professions there are more likely to encounter psychopaths than others, writes The Independent.
The newspaper refers to studies conducted by the British psychologist Kevin Dutton. He has psychopaths as his field of study and has made a list of professions that are most attractive to psychopaths.
- Psychopathic personality traits are actually more common among business executives than with so-called disturbed criminals, Dutton claims.
Examples of such traits are, according to Dutton, superficial charm, egocentricity, persuasion skills, lack of empathy, independency and focus.
It is not always easy to expose psychopaths around you, but characteristics may be that they do not show remorse and has little empathy for others.
Professions and positions with high proportion of psychopaths:
* Business Managers
* Media (TV/radio)
* Religious leaders
The newspaper Forbes has earlier published a similar list of professions with low proportion of psychopaths:
* Care Workers
* People who work with charity
* Creative occupations
