I lifted the chart below from a sweet piece yesterday on the Huffington Post, entitled "Which Professions Have The Most Psychopaths?" by writer Eric Barker.

Barker writes:
"First off, psychopath doesn't just mean someone who cuts you up with a chainsaw -- though the majority of people who do things like that are psychopaths." 

The writer is correct. Psychopathy is but one of the five Character Structures we may build around and into ourselves to survive the slings and arrows of childhood at the mercy of un-self-actualized parents, and a dysfunctional social and cultural environment. (For of full description of the Psychopathic Character Structure go HERE.)

So, given that most psychopaths do function, relatively speaking, in society,  which professions (other than axe murderer) do they disproportionately gravitate towards -- or away from, according to Barker?

Well, enjoy the chart below: + means more psychopathy, - means less. And take note of where a career as a therapist fits in. (Whew!)
