Thom Hartmann: Surprise! What jobs have the highest number of psychopaths?



Dr. Kevin Dutton, Research Psychologist-Oxford University, joins Thom Hartmann. When you hear the word psycopath - what do you think of? Probably some brutal serial killer that was out of his mind - right? But - what if I told you that psychopaths that can function at extremely high levels - and succeed in all levels of society? If you think that psychopathic tendencies and success have nothing in common - then everything you know is wrong!

3. I'm guessing CEOs, psychiatrists,

maybe a few marriage therapists, a portion of the clergy, and republican politicians.

5. Okay, I got a few of them...

Basically if there is any organization with a power-based hierarchy to be dominated by manipulation, etc.

Dentists indeed. I'm having my own intensive round with a dentist at the moment. He SEEMS so nice and so gentle, but . . . .

12. Don't miss Hartmann's Friday shows.

Brunch with Bernie (Sanders) is The BEST!

We live in the very RED , very Rural South (West/Central Arkansas).
We are so far out there, we can't even get Rush on the radio,
only Jesus Radio and bad CW.

We wouldn't be able to survive without XM Sat Radio
which carries Thom Hartmann's show everyday at 2PM,
and Prairie Home Companion on Saturday night.

11. Psychopaths are very lonely people

They feel no attachments to people. They can't love. They will never feel that warm rush of holding a loved one in their arms. You would feel sorry for them if they weren't so dangerous and vicious. They can't feel the good feelings of love, bonding and concern but they can feel all the nasty feelings of hate, anger and revenge.

If you have a psychopath in your life, try your best to stay away from them. Get as far away as you can get. They are very dangerous, vicious people.
