According to a survey conducted by psychologist Kevin Dutton—called the Great British Psychopath Survey—here are the top 10 professions with the most psychopaths:
- Media (TV/Radio)
- Police Officer
- Civil Servant
And here are the professions with the least psychopaths:
- Care Aide
- Charity Worker
- Creative Artist
Although people tend to think of psychopaths as killers—indeed about 15-25% of people in prison are psychopaths—in fact many people with psychopathic tendencies are not criminals.
Rather interesting that in the top ten are clergy, police officers, people who automatically get respect and trust from everyone.
