You might think someone you work with has psychopathic tendencies, but the chances are you're wrong.
The prevalence of psychopaths in the general public is around 1 percent, making it unlikely that you are working with one or a group of psychopaths.
But certain professions are more likely to attract psychopaths than others because of the nature and skills required to do the job successfully, according to an AOL story.
Psychologist Kevin Dutton wrote in his book The Wisdom of Psychopaths: What Saints, Spies, and Serial Killers Can Teach Us About Success about certain job fields that attract psychopaths.
The following jobs have the highest rate of psychopaths, according to Dutton's research:
1. Chief Executive Officer
3. Media (Television/Radio)
7. Police officer
8. Clergy person
10. Civil servant
