In the modern world, psychopaths are seen as nothing more than murderers or criminals. Psychopaths are those without empathy and emotions. They are callous, manipulative, and reckless. People may see these people as one thing, but they are actually many psychopaths who are thriving in the corporate world. They are business leaders, CEO’s, and politicians. There is that slight possibility that they are actually helping not hurting the world of work. Is this really true? The question remains unanswered, but there is proof to prove both sides of the argument.

● Around 1% of the population are psychopaths ● The brain of a Psychopath is significantly different than that of the non-psychopath. ● The American corporate world rewards psychopathic behavior. ● Around 4% of business leaders are considered psychopaths. ● Many psychopathic traits resemble what a good leader should be.
