My Boss is A Psychopath! - How to Know Whether If He is Or Not

An employer out of 25 could be a psychopath. Let me show you how an individual can be both charming and emotionally disconnected.

Do you really hate your boss? Is it crooked to the point of taking all the credit for your work or leave you there to take care of the task of issues he creates? Psychologist and co-author of Snakes in Suits: When Psychopaths Go to Work Paul Babiak analyzed the personalities of more than 200 U.S. professionals. Using a checklist developed by Robert Hare of the University of British Columbia (the "Psychopathy Checklist"), he discovered that 4% met these criteria. One in 25!

Mr. Babiak assume they get their game well on the job market by convincing managers of their forces. "Psychopaths always make a good first impression, he says. They are charming and impressive. In fact they are bad managers and are not interested in their business or their profession. They only think about themselves. "

In short, psychopaths hiding behind a mask. They present themselves as charismatic leaders, but in fact they are empty shells. They do not express their emotions and show no regret or guilt.

Some studies have already demonstrated that they had difficulty in understanding the nature of feelings, which would explain their insensitivity and low emotional IQ. Half of the patients of Paul Babiak is from the world of finance. Is their interest in money could have something to do with? The psychologist suggests that psychopaths live as parasites. "They are opportunists who attach themselves to people like parasites and drain their resources, he illustrates. They seek the easiest way to get their way and are naturally attracted to where the money is: the world of finance and business. "

A psychopath can be betrayed by his behavior. "Studies have shown that they tend to have an unhealthy relationship with alcohol," says Dr. Babiak. Some might be tempted to conclude that their boss is a psychopath because we love accusing people. Be careful!

That your boss is psycho or just cruel, do not dump your venom on Facebook or Twitter. Doing so may risk your job ...

A solution to this problem would be to find another job. But be careful! Don't let your boss know, or he might fire you and you might not find another job that soon. You can also tell him that he is the one who should take care of his own problems, not you.
