 Jobs That Offer Power Attract Most Number of Psychopaths

A new book has claimed that jobs that offer power and cutthroat decision making often attract the most number of psychopaths.

'The Wisdom of Psychopaths: What Saints, Spies, and Serial Killers Can Teach Us About Success' outlines the ten jobs psychopaths are most likely, and least likely, to be found in.

In the workplace, psychopaths are characterised by their attempts to try to undermine and "mentally destroy" their co-workers to feed their need for a sense of power and domination over other human beings.

A leading psychotherapist recently warned Australian bosses that they need to implement strategies to manage workplace psychopaths because they exist in most large companies.

"They don't suffer any guilt or remorse, or in fact they enjoy the suffering of other people," News.com.au quoted Dr John Clarke as telling a conference in Tasmania.

According to the Business Insider, the book says that psychopaths are drawn to and thrive in roles where people need the ability to make "objective, clinical decisions divorced from feelings."

Top jobs for psychopaths are:

CEO

Lawyer

Media (TV/radio)

Salesperson

Surgeon

Journalist

Police officer

Clergyperson

Chef

Civil servant
