They estimate that well over 50% of Fortune 1000 CEOs are clinical psychopaths.

Both a myth and an exaggeration, as the most claimed is usually 1 out of 25, and pretty much everyone says that's entirely false and baseless.

And it becomes an easy argument. "Oh, that guy did something wrong because he's an undiagnosed psychopath." Hardly. "That guy did something wrong because he's so removed from reality and has been so rewarded for doing something wrong that, over time, he stopped recognizing that it is wrong" is more like it.

It's conditioning, not a mental disability, and excusing it as such will never address the underlying problem. Instead, by saying they're all psychopaths, it's seeking headlines and passing blame.

Actually, he's a great article that says just what I said.
Cutter, please stop repeating such obviously wrong information. You like it because you dislike CEOs, but stop and think and realize how ridiculously unlikely it is. Then stop and think and realize how it stops blaming the situation that created the CEO.

He likes it because he's bought into the myth that anyone rich is the antichrist and big government is here to get you through life via handholding and robbing the rich to provide for the "poor unfortunate"

Yes, psychopaths make great CEOs if you think that also being a remarkably poor human being is acceptable.


Steve Jobs was a very well noted to be an asshole to anyone and everyone and now look at him. He's almost worshipped for being this way.

That's what really boggles the mind. It's like this mass-delusion coupled with victim mentality and some Stockholm syndrome thrown in. The man should be villified - and he rightfully is in many circles - but he's also adored by many. Then again, every dictator has his worshippers too. Again, boggles the mind that seemingly intelligent, rational, educated human beings can fall victim to that sort of thing.

isn't that a question that could be actively studied in the current corporate climate?

It has been studied and well documented for decades now. They estimate that well over 50% of Fortune 1000 CEOs are clinical psychopaths. That doesn't mean violent, but it does mean a remarked lack of empathy for everyone and everything else that's common in most normal human beings. Hence the reason they can tank a company, fuck over the employees, environment, and everything else and still walk away unphased and happy so long as they get their golden parachute. In short they're all about 'fuck everyone and everything else so long as I get mine'.

Did you know that the average CEO these days makes 157 times as much as the average worker in North America? 157 times as much!?!?!?!
