HotIgneous Intruder: Most people have psychopathologies.
cuzsis: "On the other hand, most of the roles on the left do offer power and many require an ability to make objective, clinical decisions divorced from feelings."So what the article seems to be saying is that making emotional decisions is better than objective clinical decisions.What. The. Fark.That has got to be one of the stupidest things I've ever read.
angrymacface: Psychopathy? Yes. Sociopathy? No.
James F. Campbell: angrymacface: Psychopathy? Yes. Sociopathy? No.There's no established difference between these two words.
Atomic Spunk: It made me chuckle a bit to see clergy person and chef on the list.
limeyfellow: Really? I thought it be pretty obvious why they are on the list. Some of the creepiest people I know,.
RoyBatty: Yay!Another Boing Boing directed two minute hate fest!Most of us will read that and not be any more informed, but it will help us feel superior to CEOs, lawyers, surgeons, journalists, chefs, cops, priests, and damn right, farking civil servants.I love Boing Boing. So much stuff of measurably negative value foisted off onto an eager consumer.
SockMonkeyHolocaust: I think you have to be kind of crazy to want to impose your reality on the world. That man... his name was Dimebag Darrell and he's dead. Now you know the REST of the story.
TheGhostofFarkPast: I hate that Fark allows people to link to that site, it's just an aggregate site that posts total crap over and over again. It's just your typical click for cash BS website.
BolloxReader: cuzsis: "On the other hand, most of the roles on the left do offer power and many require an ability to make objective, clinical decisions divorced from feelings."So what the article seems to be saying is that making emotional decisions is better than objective clinical decisions.What. The. Fark.That has got to be one of the stupidest things I've ever read.Not at all. It is healthier on a personal level to make decisions emotionally. I don't know how many arguments I had with education and business school profs while serving on various diversity committees because their entire approach toward governance was inimical to positive interpersonal relationships.Logical and unbiased decisionmaking is poison to society.
fugeeface: Wow, lawyers are way farther down the list than I expected.
James F. Campbell: There's no established difference between these two words.
snoproblem: There's a higher than average number of men of the cloth that gave me that 'something's not quite right, here' feeling versus the general pop. It;s like they have this subtle low-level smarm that they can't really turn off.
gerbilpox: "Civil servant" could be anything -- including, for example, a teacher.Surgeon = more psycho, but doctor = less?Care aid therapist?Article = fluff + trash + trolling
tillerman35: I'd be interested in finding out whether the reason is "they're drawn to those professions and thrive there" or "those professions turn them into that type of person." I've known people that started out decent, but then got to be CEOs, etc. and it eventually brought out their inner Mr. Hyde..
Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: Corporate America self-selects for sociopathy. If you don't put in 12 hours every day, you aren't C-suite material. Only people willing to give up their families and lives make it to CEO.
LemSkroob: Nice guys who go into the academy, and come out drunk drivers and wife beaters.
Dinjiin: A sociopath is only loyal to themselves and will feign it to others only to achieve some goal that benefits themselves.
dragonchild: Some are very empathic; they're just bitter or burned out
dragonchild: While sociopathy makes someone more likely to hurt others, they're not necessarily sadistic and can well be self-loathing.
Dinjiin: My understanding was that if they were empathetic, it was a trained response (logical), not a natural one (emotional).
Dinjiin: I've heard and read a number of times that sociopaths often resort to some sort of extreme and/or risky behavior in order to fill their emotional void. . . How far off is that?
