    I think it's because they usually go for high risk, adrenaline inducing things

    Top investment banking corporations allegedly use the psychopathic checklist to recruit psychopaths; they are calm under pressure, focussed, remorseless for financial losers and risk-takers (often bringing in huge profits to the company).

    Though your conscience is in the right place you also have a pragmatic streak and generally aren’t afraid to do your own dirty work! You’re no shrinking violet - but no daredevil either. You generally have little trouble seeing things from another person’s perspective but, at the same time, are no pushover. ‘Everything in moderation – including moderation’ might sum up your approach to life.

    itt - autists who score highly on the psychopath test because it has a similar range of symptoms and edgy american psycho wannabes

    psycopaths = people who are unable to control their violent urges and have often been to jail, most aren't very intelligent and just don't care about the consequences, so if you score highly on this test you probably need help, there's a bit of a difference with sociopaths some people say in that they don't feel empathy but can control themselves, furthermore recent studies are redefining psycopathy in that they can feel empathy just when they choose to so this test is probably inaccurate

    Seems legit, why would they care about the company? The company is risking bringing on people with violent tendencies who have nothing wrong with stealing from the company or hurting their superiors to get to the top, it's possible to be very calm under pressure and also not have a mental illness like psychopathy

    It is not a diagnosable condition; it's like autism in that one is either high or low on the spectrum.
    1. What people 'psychopathy' and 'sociopathy' is actually a mental illness called Anti-Social Personality Disorder and it's definitely diagnosable.

    2. Autism is also diagnosable.

    What you're saying is pretty extreme. A large amount of psychopaths are actually not violet criminals, and actually tend to be high functioning and successful people. There's a reason why many CEOs, bankers, city lawyers and politicians are psychopaths; they tend to be very charming, manipulative and ruthless, which helps them go far. It's definitely a stretch to say all psychopaths will be violent criminals. In fact, psychopaths tend to be highly intelligent, not unintelligent.

    People in investment banking etc. probably show psychopathic 'traits' not being a full blown psychopath, because being a full blowing psychopath does not mean that you're functional. It's also a myth that psychopaths are highly intelligent, they're of normal intelligence and plenty are of below average intelligence like your daily animal torturer
    "The key finding in this study is that psychopathic and non-psychopathic criminals, although not different in overall levels of intelligence, did differ in how high intelligence was related to the seriousness of misbehavior. For non-psychopaths, higher intelligence, particularly verbal intelligence, meant a later start in violent crime. For those diagnosed as psychopaths, however, high intelligence meant an early start in violent offending and more problematic behavior in and outside of institutions

    other study i cba to paste link from - '4% among corporate CEOs' are psychopaths, not a particularly high number
