Psychopathy need not be a disadvantage
Persons with marked psychopathy are considered callous, cold, unrepentant, dishonest, and impulsive. At work, therefore, they can endanger the success of their entire team – at least that is the popular conception. But some people with psychopathic traits can also be different, research shows, because not all “psychopaths” are the same. Instead, at least two different facets of personality come together in psychopathy. They can occur together, but do not have to.
