December 31, 2015 It is believed that one per cent of the population displays psychopathic traits, which when subtle, can help people get ahead at work. Between three and four per cent of senior positions are believed to be occupied by psychopaths. According to a survey by psychologist Kevin Dutton, people who hold certain jobs are more likely to display psychopathic traits, including CEOs, lawyers, TV personalities, salespeople, surgeons, journalists, police officers, clergymen, chefs and civil servants. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencet...its-look-charm-eccentricity-manipulation.html A quiz recently swept the internet that claims to tell you just how 'evil' you are. It measures Machiavellian, narcissistic and psychopathic traits to tell you whether you are 'occasionally vile' or 'decidedly dastardly' for example. The quiz was created by BBC Future and inspired by questionnaires developed by psychologists Delroy Paulhus and Daniel Jones. It measures the personality traits described as the 'dark triad.' Here is my result: Like Don Draper, you are moderately nefarious. You walk on the dark side of humanity, but your ruthless streak may just help you get ahead.
