Personally, i would love to see a planet with people who prefer peace to chaos. Todays world is imbalanced and needs a good pole shift. Shift happens, and now would be a damn good time for that.
Research Suggests Politicians are More Likely to Be Psychopaths
Several of the characteristics that define a psychopath also correspond to the same traits that make for effective leaders. For politicians, this is especially true.
It’s important to understand that psychopathic behavior and affect exist on a continuum; there are those who fall into the grey area between “normal” people and true psychopaths.
The question, then, is whether it is reasonable to believe that people with serious abnormalities in the way they interact with the world can be found running for (and winning) office. However unsettling as this may be, the answer seems to be yes. It’s possible for psychopaths to be found anywhere — including city hall or Washington, D.C.
Research has shown that disorder may confer certain advantages that make psychopaths particularly suited to a life on the public stage and able to handle high-pressure situations: psychopaths score low on measures of stress reactivity, anxiety and depression, and high on measures of competitive achievement, positive impressions on first encounters, and fearlessness.
