Yup, your boss might be crazy — psychopaths succeed in business1/28/2013
Think your boss is a psychopath? We're not surprised. Turns out the top rung of the corporate ladder is infested with Gordon Gekko, Tony Soprano and Stalin types. That's according to psychologist and broadcaster Oliver James, whose new book "Office Politics" divvies these back-stabbing climbers into three categories: psychopath, Machiavellian and narcissist, plus a fourth who possesses all three characteristics. He dubs this nightmare exec a "triadic person." Sounds like these power-mongers should seek help, but it's actually an if-you-can't-beat-em-join-'em scenario: James says such slimeballs are rocketing themselves to the top and that "if you do not develop the skills to deal with them, they will eat you for breakfast."
