Coping with workplace psychos
Thursday April 14, 6:00 am ET
As many as one in 100 adults in the workplace is a psychopath, according to the forthcoming "Snakes in Suits: When Psychopaths Go to Work" by Robert
D. Hare, Ph.D., professor emeritus in psychology at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, and Paul Babiak, Ph.D., a New York-based
industrial-organizational psychologist. Not surprisingly, psychopaths comprise as much as a quarter of the prison population.
There also are a few psychos that manage to find a home in the workplace. Most of them aren't likely to slice and dice in their off hours like Wall
Street wiz Patrick Bateman in "American Psycho" or sauté their neighbors like Hannibal Lecter in "Silence of the Lambs." But their innate charm,
lust for thrills and lack of conscience can exact similar damage on the careers of those who stand in their way.
Unless you can find a way to have your company's psycho moved from the corner office to the local sanitarium, you're going to have to find a way to
work with (or around) that person in order to hang onto your job. It helps to cope when you know a little about what makes such a person tick.
"Psychopaths know the difference between right and wrong, but they think it's amusing that you and I differentiate it," says Babiak. "They don't
see a separation between what's mine and what's yours; what I own is theirs. They don't see my ownership of property or even my life as something
valuable that they need to respect."
According to Hare, psychopaths share this laundry list of abnormalities:
lack of remorse or empathy
low frustration tolerance
persistent violation of social norms
Weiner says a corporate culture that turns a blind eye to aggressive one-upmanship is a perfect breeding ground for psychopathic bullies.
Do psychos actually make it to the top?
"I would have to say yes," says Babiak. "To quote 'Survivor': They can outwit, outplay and outlast everybody."
So when you call the boss crazy, you just might be right."
my opinion :::
I told ya so
If you werent aware that Psychopaths rule the corporations of america you were poorly informed....
This report gives more weight to the arguement that the "Elitists" in this nation, America; are the Psychopaths of the population
Rich, Greedy, Selfish, Egocentric, Corrupt
now i can officially and realistically call them psychopaths!
SBC/Yahoo news is actually reasonably Balanced
They reported on SKULL/BONES Bush-Kerry Connection!!!
thats where i learned about the Skull-Bones thing!!!

any news agency that will report on Kerry-Bush Skull-bones connection is a GOOD News Agency!!!!
