10 Most Psychopathic Jobs In America [Pic]

Submitted by: kitteh9lives 3 years ago


A ranking compiled by Oxford psychologist Kevin Dutton, author of The Wisdom of Psychopaths: What Saints, Spies, and Serial Killers Can Teach Us About Success, suggests that lawyers, CEOs, and TV/Media top the list for professions chosen by psychopaths. Conversely, care aids, nurses, and therapists are the least psychopathic professions.

@McGovern1981,
"Civil Servent/Politician - I refer you to Anthony Weiner. There`s something wrong with you if you cannot possibly imagine life without elected office."

I think you misspelled "erected".

"I didn`t make either list."

I`m sure "Idiot" is smack at the middle of the Psychopathy Bell Curve.

#4 SalesPerson:

I once had a relationship with a corporate advertising consultant (She shows companies how to advertise and sell their product)

She tried to run me over in her car as I was leaving her neighborhood - because I declined to stay the night at her place - because she picked an argument with me because I prefer a different chinese takeaway to her.

Most politicians are lawyers so I have no doubt this list is accurate.

I knew of some crazy teachers while in school, so I wouldn`t put too much faith in this list.

jaysingrimm: Wikipedia doesn`t really make a distinction between them apart from the popular science article quoted in that paragraph.

bliznik: Yes, but a very peculiar breed of doctor, detatchment makes for steadier hands and calmer judgements.

Surgeons are a type of doctor. I would imagine that maybe the cutting people open part is what distinguishes them.

Most of these are egomaniac types. People who are dissatisfied with not being famous and/or powerful.

CEO - ego
Lawyer - liar
Sales - liar
Journalist - ego

If this is really the case, then how come more CEO`s aren`t thrown in prison? ;)

Seriously though, while I don`t doubt that CEO`s and the like are more prone to SOCIOPATHY, it`s important to distinguish from PSYCHOPATHY. A Psychopath is often too easily distracted by their psychotic tendencies to advance in a career, or maintain social relationships. Off hand, I can`t think of a single known serial killer that had one of these careers.

Obviously that`s not to say that no-one from any of these professions has been convicted of murder, or had a psychotic break of some sort, but the same could probably be said about ANY profession.
