WASHINGTON, D.C. – Going crazy at work? Take a look around. The only thing crazy might just be you.
At least according to psychologist Kevin Dutton in his new book titled The Wisdom of Psychopaths: What Saints, Spies, and Serial Killers Can Teach Us About Success.
Dutton claims the typical psychopathic attributes are more common in business leaders than in supposedly disturbed criminals. Traits like superficial charm, egocentricity, persuasiveness, lack of empathy, independence and focus.
Dutton also went to far as to identify the industries that attract the most amount of crazies, like moths to a flame.
Most likely to attract psychopaths:
- Police Officers
- Civil Servants
If you want to steer clear of the crazies, check out these careers that the author says has the least amount of coo-coos.
- Care Aide
- Beauticians and Stylists
- Charity Workers
- Creative Artists
But hey, in this economy, working with a couple of crazies is better than being out of a job.
