Financial psychopaths

For success in the financial world, some traits that are associated with psychopathy come in handy.

It is estimated that 10% of the employees on Wall Street are a clinical psychopath. They are thrillseekers, have no problem with taking risks, they lack empathy, are charming and intelligent, and are good liars and manipulators.

Ronald Schouten is working on an interesting book about this subject. Read more about this at his post
on Harvard Business Review.
