Experts say that psychopaths comprise about one percent of the general population. Studies have shown, however, that a higher percentage of psychopaths are attracted to certain professions. For example, about ten percent of chief operating officers are psychopaths (no wonder you didn’t get along with that boss).

Now, Kevin Dutton, a psychologist at Oxford, has ranked the top ten jobs with the highest and lowest rates of psychopaths. You can already guess which profession came in second with the most psychopaths.
