"Civil servant" could be anything -- including, for example, a teacher.

Surgeon = more psycho, but doctor = less?

Care aid therapist?

Article = fluff + trash + trolling

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.

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."
