There's that claim out there, backed up by loose statistics, that there a lot more psychopaths in jobs like ours. And yes, even more among Surgeons. So, who here is pretty sure they have met or worked with one? Or are you one...

Lol guilty as charged...jk, I think. I don't think I have the awareness to see whether I'm a psychopath so really someone else would have to tell me...

I mean, you have to be a little different from your average person to be able to stomach slicing people open and dealing with the human body in the way that a surgeon does.. so I think it makes sense that there would be some psychos among us.

Lol please let me know where you found these statistics. I'm interested in taking a look myself

I can see why though. The high-stress environment of these professions can attract people with psychopathic traits.

Thinking of switching employers.

It seems like the larger chain stores would have more downtime, but I'm wondering if anyone could give some input.

I called him today but he didn’t pick up, claiming he’s too busy to talk, even though I’m hearing through the grapevine that he’s calling others in the organization to say that he’s leaving.

It’s been ongoing for about two years and is very aggravating.
