Noting that it was an estimate, and likely an overestimate at that, Dr. Schouten, however, that it probably underestimates the number of “almost” psychopaths.
You can spot a psychopath, he said, as those who exhibit “glibness and superficial charm, conning and manipulative behavior, lack of remorse and empathy, refusal to take responsibility for one’s behavior, and others.”
Here are some other traits:
“Consistent decisions in their self-interest, even where it is ethically questionable”
“Chronic, sometimes transparent lies, even with regard to minor things.”
“Persistent focus on gratifying their own needs at the expense of others.”
You want that type of person gone from your office, Dr. Schouten said, but there is some good news.
“While full-blown psychopaths are not deterred by fear and do not learn from punishment, ‘almost psychopaths’ can get the message that adverse consequences will follow misconduct,” he wrote. “As a result, strictly enforced firm policies can be effective in deterring those who may be tempted to engage in illicit conduct. As long as the firm wants to deter them.”
…these traits known to all of us, of those guys and gals that are “cold blooded nearly psychopaths, are not only in the “stick market and mutual funds that have no legal protection of the government”…!
…they are surgeons and doctors, pharmaceutical companies, even police, and psychologists/psychiatrists themselves, and even politicians…!
…they over-power others, and delight in it…!
…BUT THE SYSTEM AND THE NEED OF MONEY, AND THE WRONG ECONOMICAL MODELS OF THE WORLD “MAKES THEM” and most of them are considered “top notch hard working citizens”…!
