Psychopaths usually seem very calm and totally normal on the outside. You won’t be able to spot one in public. But actually all of them have something in common, and that is their career.

Psychopaths feed on stress, in fact they even create the chaos around them on purpose, to look better in the eyes of other people. Studies revealed that 4% of big companies CEOs are real psychopaths and 20% are getting there.

Lawyer

Lawyers must have an ability to make very serious moral choices, because they are basically in charge of somebody’s life. It’s a very stressful job and you have to hide your emotions and think straight.

One successful psychopath lawyer once said, “Deep inside me there’s a serial killer lurking somewhere.” Creepy!

Surgeon

Being a surgeon is extremely hard. You are literally looking inside of somebody’s body and you can both save and kill them. You have to think fast and make decisions that may contradict the moral code.

“I don’t have compassion for those who I operate on. During surgery, I need to remain cold-blooded and work like a machine with a scalpel,” said a neurosurgeon, who prefered to stay anonymous, to a psychoanalyst Carl Sword.

 Chef

Busy kitchen is a total chaos, which is an amazing place for psychopaths. Also, there are a lot of knives and fire. JK. But, for real, even famous chef Gordon Ramsay said that chefs are insane.

Clergy person

It seems like religion and psychopaths are not even supposed to be in one sentence, but unfortunately, it is a perfect sphere for psychopaths because they can easily manipulate people and get information for blackmail.

Police officer

It is no surprise that a profession of a police officer is dangerous. Especially for those who take part in raids and work in dangerous areas. But that’s what psychopaths like. They easily remain calm in stressful situations.

According to statistics, about 40% of policemen families suffer from domestic violence, which is twice as much as regular families.

Journalist

If somebody calls a journalist insolent and cruel, that’s more likely a compliment. You must be very competitive to deliver good material faster than the others if you want to climb that career ladder. That is extremely stressful but also, a perfect place for a psychopath.

Of course, it doesn’t mean that all the people of these professions are psychos. This list is based of certain qualities that people of these professions and psychopaths share like lack of sentiment, confidence, and charm.
