18. I've worked for one in the past
And I know one right now. I don't work for this one, thank goodness, but he has gotten two friends of mine fired in the last year.

The description is very accurate. They pick a victim and focus on that person until he/she destroys the person.

I've learned that there is a key to look for. Be very careful about going to work for a person who has had several marriages that ended in divorce or the death of the spouse.

It is scary, but the article is correct that these people are more common than you would think. I'm not yet 50, and I've known three of them in my lifetime.
