A newly released study reveals which professions are most likely to employ psychopaths, and CEOs top the list. Also listed in the top ten: surgeons, police officers, and clergy.

Concerned your boss might be a psychopath?

Psychology professor and author Kevin Dutton shares what traits to look for:

  • Being a control freak - psychopaths are emotional chess players
  • Charming - they possess the innate gift to make you feel like the only person in the room
  • Parasitical - they take you into their confidence and steal valuable new ideas from you
  • Non-stick - never accept responsibility and adept at manufacturing evidence to frame someone else
  • Power hungry - positions of influence satisfy their need to control and manipulate others
