Eric Barker: Which Professions Have The Most Psychopaths?
So why am I writing about psychopaths? I came across this article from the Huffington Post, one of my favorite left wing propaganda sites. The article discusses various professions and why people in those professions seem to share some traits that are common to the aforementioned psychopaths.
Psychopathy is a personality disorder that has been variously described as characterized by shallow emotions (in particular reduced fear), stress tolerance, lacking empathy, coldheartedness, lacking guilt, egocentricity, superficial char, manipulativeness, irresponsibility, impulsivity and antisocial behaviors such as parasitic lifestyle and criminality.
Among the professions listed in the article with possible psychopathic traits are those engaged in Radio and TV. So, as an on air personality on KMMS I would like your thoughts on this topic. In your humble opinion would you consider me an active, or "psychopath in training," based on what you hear from me on the radio? I would appreciate your comments since this would save the bean counters at Town Square Media considerable "couch time" costs.
So let me know your thoughts. Should you lock your doors when I'm off the air? Or, do you feel pretty safe that I won't show up at your bed side with an ax some night? Thanks in advance for your helpful input.
