Psychopaths and the Careers They Enter

A "friend" and contributor -- Jim Romenesko -- to our media page on Facebook links to an article that tells what careers attract psychopaths.

And that article indicates that "wordsmiths" suffer mental illness.

Is that us? Nah.

(But we do know it applies to two fellows, disallowed here, who think they are wordsmiths, but are merely hacks who pummel the English language, one egregiously so)

Here's the link:




  • "The Wisdom of Psychopaths" ???!!!

    I'd write what I think of such a concept, but wouldn't want to hurt anyone's feelings.

  • Phew!

    Now I can sleep tonight.

  • Two of the truly craziest people (one, violence prone) I've ever met are doctors (you know, the medical kind that take care of sick people). Yet, this profession shows up on the list of professions with the least psychopaths.

    I'll buy CEOs, police officers, and lawyers making the psychopath list. Their behavior towards others seems intentionally sadistic a lot of the time.

    But writers? Well, fiction writers make stuff up (but that's what their job), although . . . maybe some "journalists" do it to (Jonah Lehrer being the latest case of media psychopathy).
