14. Actually the "successful, amiable psychopath" is pretty much a myth.
Most psychopath/sociopath types end up that way by virtue of being socially alienated and with primarily negative or broken social interactions--abusive parents, bullying, childhood loss, whatever. These same conditions are very much not an ideal for achieving social success and wealth, or even being socially capable enough to interact with people well. Despite popular images like Hannibal Lecter, most psychopaths are isolated, barely functional people.
