Are you working with a psycho?

Yes, as jpoliakon points out, Sky News is probably a bit sensationalist LOL, but this story makes me wonder about the idiots that did this study.

"Because 'corporate psychopaths' have similar ruthless traits as sadistic killers, it often helps them succeed in gaining management roles, the study found.

In reply to: Are you working with a psycho?

Could be 'sociopath' would be a better term. Ive learned that 'psychopath' has been superceded by 'sociopath'. And, I think it may be a better word, since it may not carry as much baggage as the former term. The physically dangerous people who are sociopaths are in the minority; most can be found where they can do other kinds of damage, such as in the business world. Unfortunately it doesnt stop there. They also tend to be bad for relationships. While they may be 'superficially charming', the other party may find it hard to break away.
