I saw this interesting program last night on ABC television regarding workplace pychopaths ... there's more out there than i thought!

Quoting: ABC

Working with Monsters - dealing with the workplace psychopath
Richard

Cunning, ruthless, terrifying are words to describe a criminal psychopath, but they might also describe a workplace psychopath, your co-worker or even your boss.

Sooner or later in your working life you're likely to run into these manipulative, intimidating creatures; people who can turn a good job into a god-awful nightmare.

Psychopath are individuals who, for whatever reason, lack any kind of human empathy, who take pleasure in destroying the lives of the co-workers and employees, just because they can.

How do you recognise these people, and what can you do to protect yourself from them?

To begin with try this checklist;

They are manipulative,
They Bully co-workers,
Scheming, shallow parasitic- They steal other people's ideas,
Never go to meetings so they can blame others,
Have a grandiose sense of their own worth,
Lack remorse and guilt for their actions,
and have no conscience.

maybe you're just lucky. or maybe you just didn't get close to the psychopaths in the upper echelons of the company smile

i seem to come across them all too often. maybe i attract them somehow? perhaps psychopaths percieve me to be more of a threat than other people ...
