Apparently some careers are far more prone to attract people with psychopathic tendencies! According to a new book by psychologist Kevin Dutton, there are characteristics exhibited by psychopaths that are found in many people who may not be considered deranged. Here is what the Journal of Abnormal Psychology says about psychopathy:

(It) is a personality disorder characterized by anti-social behavior, selfishness, egocentricity, callousness, manipulativeness and lack of empathy.
In the new book by Dutton, The Wisdom of Psychopaths - What Saints, Spies and Serial Killers Can Teach Us About Success, he creates offers a list of the top 10 most attractive professions to those with psychopathic tendencies, and the 10 least attractive.
However, the point of Dutton's book is NOT to suggest these professionals are prone to violence.  His goal is to disprove the widely-believed theory that people are either dangerous or not. He believes many people possess these psychopathic tendencies -- regardless of whether they become a serial killer, criminal or other develop socially unacceptable behavior.
