Following on from an earlier post this week, this video ‘Defense Against the Psychopath’ is pretty good. It details the types of psychopath you are likely to meet in life and especially in business, unfortunately.
Most psychopaths are not criminals, although a great a many are, no, the real psychopaths are those who would destroy a whole nation to get at it’s oil reserves for instance. Have we seen that in recent history?
If we plan to expect that some of the people we meet and work with have psychopathic or sociopathic tendencies then at least we can do something about it. Avoidance is usually a good place to start, because these people cannot be reasoned with, we are all pawns in their game, at least that’s how they see us.
