Top 10 psychopathic professions: CEO, lawyer then media, twice

More psychopaths are CEOs than any other profession, according to an author who spent time researching the common denominators between successful people and sanity.
Psychopaths aren't necessarily ax murderers, as Time noted. The clinical diagnosis refers to those who have shallow emotions or who lack empathy and guilt, are coldhearted, superficial, manipulative, impulsive or irresponsible.
And with that definition, it seems the corporate world has its fair share.
In what's been billed as one of the most overlooked books of recent years "The Wisdom of Psychopaths: What Saints, Spies and Serial Killers Can Teach Us About Success" author Kevin Dutton finds that CEOs lead the list in terms of most psychopathic persons. That's followed by lawyers, and then by members of television and radio media, Time reported. Numbers four and five are salesperson and surgeon and then the media makes the list again, with the number six slot held by journalists.

Where’s politician on the list?
Lawyers. Almost all politicians are lawyers.
In other words journalists dont mind lying? Knock me over with a feather
Number 3 and Number 6 are both journalists. Why did they split them into two groups? Easy — they wanted to make sure that the top slot was occupied by businessmen, not by journalists.
All people who think abortion up to 9 months in the womb should be #1. The left in general.
You have just slandered the honest lawyers; both of them.
Dutton looks like a psychopath.
I don’t think I’ve ever met a CEO that had a ‘soul’.
How about the roles of:
I’d say some lunatic is making a lot of bad choices.
Strictly speaking, CEO is not a “profession.”
I really enjoy following the posts of “TigerLikesRooster”, so I was kinda surprised seeing “TigerLikesRooster” as the poster for this article - until I realized: the *real* #1 profession for psychopaths is that of Dear Leader of North Korea!
I dunno minimally I find that "care providers" such as CNAs LPNs and RNs are "sociopaths"...
It's a power and control issue... playing off of human fears of pain, suffering, illness and death. I have no use for the medical industrial complex as a result... mix in the Left's insistence on having the government intimately connected with your health... and how they can extract your money, and dignity... well...
...I try to avoid sociopaths/psychopaths in my life.
I think it’s saying that care providers are at the other end of the scale—among those least likely to be psychopaths.
