I’m sure most of us feel like we’re going slightly mad in our jobs, and I’m sure we can all look around our workplace and point out somebody you are certain is a psychopath.
In reality though, they may actually just be a sociopath, or just hate you, either way, it’s probably best just to keep out of their way and not use their favourite mug.
However, there are indeed certain professions in which you are more likely to encounter a proper psychopath in the workplace. Here below are revealed 10 occupations where you’re more likely to bump into a certified psychopath.
