Unfortunately, during my last few years as a dental hygienist, I worked for a couple of sociopaths. Statistics show that 1 in 25 bosses are sociopaths. Is yours? How can you tell?
Listed below are the twenty signs of psychopathy by Robert Hale. A person doesn't need to have twenty to be a psychopath--but take a look at these qualities and see how your boss fits or does fit. You may be surprised.
Hare told Horizon: “The higher the psychopathy, the better they looked – lots of charisma and they talk a good line."
“Psychopaths can tell what you’re thinking, they look at your body language, they listen to what you say, but what they don’t do is feel what you feel.
“What this allows them to do is use words to manipulate and con and to interact with you without the baggage of feeling your pain.”
